1/7 More Open Scrapbook Pages for January

This layout took me out of my style box - but all in a good way! I got my inspiration from a layout that I saw a long time ago . . . and I spent a long time trying to figure out who that person was. Obviously they hadn't left a watermark on their work! I did change it up quite a bit, but I hate not giving credit to someone who inspired me. This is the second set of pages that my customers will do at my Open Scrapbook Club later this month. These beachy dunes are probably a little more dramatic than what one would find along the shores of a typical MN lake, But, that's the beauty of paper-tearing, you can tear it your way and get a completely different look so I hope my customers feel free to change it up and make it look how they would like it to look!

I used a blender pen to soften the bird after he was stamped. Then, I took the fine tip ends of a couple of markers and just drew in some contrast. I really like the way this bird looks a little like our sand birds that I see running along the shores of our lakes and ponds.

Have a happy stamping day!!

Wow Kay!! This is really fun and very, very inventive. Reminds me of the beaches I grew up with on the East Coast and some here in Oregon. Might work for a prairie or grass meadow type scene too.
