SAMI'S PHOTO SHOOT 6x12 Challenge

The inspiration for this layout was a challenge at My Creative Scrapbook to do a layout measuring 6"x12". Wow this was harder than I ever thought! I decided to use smaller photos provided by our mini schnauzer -Sami. I kept telling her "look here Sami, look at Mama"!! Well she didn't think much of the idea! I used some paper from the BasicGrey Obscure line. It worked great for the background & complimented her pretty pics!!
The flowers were made with the Basic Grey Obscure Define & 3 punches- a small Retro flower punch, an itty Fiskars flower punch & a small sunshine punch. I distressed them with Distress black soot ink & Adirondack Pool ink, then added the layers & used a small brad as center. The edges were partially outlines with a Signo & lime green Stickles. I had to refrain from adding more layers, but I felt this size really needed small flowers & not big thick blooms I often do!
I doubled matted the pics & distressed with the Distress black soot & Adirondack pool. The circle chip pieces were inked with the pool ink & "Stickled" with turquoise & aqua. I placed them kinda randomly to fill some empty spots.
The flourishes were were also inked with the pool ink & "Stickled" with the turquoise, aqua & a little bit of black diamond. I just grabbed some leftover Thickers for the title! I enjoyed this challenge! I think it was a fun way to scrap! I will probably try another one! Thanks so much for taking a look!
