One Paper, One Photo - Scrapbook Page Challenge

This month, I decided to challenge myself to create a layout with a single sheet of 12x12 paper. And, while I normally incorporate many photos on a page, I decided to feature only one image.

But first, some bookkeeping. If you're hopping with Club Scrap, you can start at the beginning to see all of the splendid creations made with the Adirondacks collection!

One Paper, One Photo Challenge
(It's not an official challenge, but you're welcome to give it a try!)

Begin the project with the 12x12 Adirondacks Mint Plain. It's the perfect base for the single sheet layout because of its hefty 100# cover weight.

Mask

Place a mask 3" from each outside edge of the paper. (I used Eclipse Tape by Judikins, but you could also use paper held in place with tape). The grid ruler ensures the paper is level with the mask.


Apply a soft layer of Earth and Sapphire inks into the upper right and lower left corners of the unmasked opening with an Ink Applicator. When inking, land the applicator on the mask, and pull beyond the mask in an upward motion. Remove the masks.


Place a vertical mask on the paper to create a 2" vertical opening. Ink the edges. 


Remove the mask.


Continue to relocate the masks to add more edges and dimension to the background.


Stencil and Stamp

Stencil and stamp images from your stash with the same ink colors. The arrows and "journey" from the Adirondacks stencil combined well with the Delft Cracked Porcelain Stencil and Garden Shed Words Stencil. The script image is one of my favorites from the Paris Flea Market stamps.


Frame

Temporarily place a photograph on the layout, and use a fine-tip pen and grid ruler to draw a double line around the perimeter of the photo. (This takes the place of a photo mat.)


Remove the photo and add watercolor splatter to the page with coordinating Gelatos and a water brush or toothbrush.


Allow the page to dry completely and adhere the photo.

That's all there is to it! I could have kept playing but, alas, the task list beckons. It's time to hop along and see what Pam at APeeling Paper Crafts has in store . . .

  2. See? This is what I was shooting for with my digital page - just the right amount of "stuff." I clearly need to hang out with you more to finally get what the right amount is! Incredible job!

    1. Hah, that's funny. Yes, I had a hard time knowing when it was "enough." If I were to do it all over again, I probably would have stopped just a little bit sooner! (And, we should hang out sometime!) Glad you liked the layout!

  15. Now, I am usually in the "use all the paper" camp, but this!! this is amazing. It reminds me of an Inchie - so much detail in one square. I think it's the right amount of detail. My mind boggles each time I see a new detail, and then I realize there is only one paper and one photo. Very, very cool, Tricia.
