Zoo






This is a layout about our trip to the Zoo. I've actually a very hard time trying to pick out the photographs that I want to scrap. There are just too many of them. Finally, these are the few that I've chosen and decided to scrap.
The inspiration for this page actually came to me directly from the photographs. The colours of nature is so beautiful that I don't want to crowd the layout with more colours. Therefore I've decided to do a black and white layout.
In this layout, I've used the "Stamping to Frame" technique to create a huge frame on the white card stock and two strips of borders on the black card stock. (Here's the link to that technique in my tips and tricks section: http://scrapperlicious.blogspot.com/2007/12/stamping-to-frame.html )
The title is created using a chipboard letter for the "Z" where I've painted and stamped on. The round circles are actually cut out from white crafting foams and stitched on to the layout.
The flowers and flourishes strip on the right are done using stamping, masking, stenciling and doodling technique.
The petals for the flower on the lower right corner is created individually where I've stamped, inked and punch holes on them.
