Your Christening

Good Morning and welcome back to Scrapbookit!

I can't believe that it is almost the end of the month. That means that it is nearly time to close this month's challenge.
Have you got your entry in yet???
Only 5 days left to get your entry in!

I am here today to share with you some more projects that I have created with the gorgeous Simple Stories Collection ~ Faith.

I think I may have mentioned in the last post that I love this collection. There are so many great things about it. One of them being that a good part of the pack is made up of gorgeous journalling cards. They are in a variety of sizes and are made up with d of words, quotes and images. 

What better use for them than to create some cards...

And some more..
These cards have very little too them and don't take long to put together thanks to the gorgeous papers and sticker elements!
I know these cards would not suit every need or every person but there are many people in my life that would appreciate one of these cards with a meaningful quote or word for their circumstance.

I have also been busy creating another layout using this collection.

Here is what I came up with... 
Your Christening
Whilst I love this collection, I had to be very careful in my selection of papers and colours to suit a boy and a christening theme!
The quote that I have used I think is just perfect!

I also took a leap into creating something a little challenging for me... that is using lots of very busy papers. I admire Jane, my DT friend, and the way that she always seems to create stunning layouts that are very busy and filled with so much to look at. Thanks for inspiring me this month (and every month) Jane.

I added to the background page of this layout some stamping, splatters and texture.

I have used the very cool IndigoBlu 'Ink Splats' stamp with some VersaMagic and Memento Inks from my kit ~ Turquoise Gem, Grey Flannel and Night Sky

I have added some Colour Blast Snow White Colour Paste through the Scrap FX Circle Border template. Once it was dry I rubbed on some Creative Expressions - Metallic Gilding Wax - Golden Light to highlight the edges slightly.

I splattered some Navy ink around the background. 

I used a star template and some Colour Blast Colour Paste - Bling to create some star embellishments for the corner of my layout.

The patterned paper under the photo was a little too busy for my liking against the rest of the papers so I have dulled it down using a thin layer of Gesso. This helps to focus the eye on the quote and photo and also allows me to journal without my writing blending into the background.

I have used a Scrap FX Wordlet - 'Christening,' for my title and have inked it with VersaMagic - Night Sky Ink. I then added a layer of Dimensional Magic to give it a nice finish. 

I have finished my layout using a variety of words and images from the sticker element sheet and I have edged the layout with some more of the Gilding Wax - Golden Light. 
I am rather chuffed with my layout and how it came together...even better, it was created in our caravan on our holiday!!!
Hope you have enjoyed checking out my layout!
Look forward to seeing your entry before the 30th!
