"Foo Fighters" scrapbook page | Sue Plumb

Hi everyone!
It's Sue Plumb here to share my latest design team project with you. Today I have a mixed media scrapbook layout I created featuring a recent photo of my daughter and I when we went to the Foo Fighters concert. (To say she is my mini me is probably an understatement! haha)

To create this layout I first started by stamping out a custom background on some white cardstock. I used a variety of my favourite stamps:

Once I had all the stamping done and I was happy with the way it was looking, it was time to add some colour. I used Colour Shimmer Cube watercolour paints from Colour Blast and just painted a few metallic colours randomly around the page; before applying some gold Colour Paste (also from Colour Blast) with a small palette knife.

Once I had all the mediums dry, I created a layered mat for my photo using a variety of collage materials - sheet music; paper doily; punchinella; paper bag; tissue paper and frayed gauze. I held all my layers together with a couple of staples before adding my photo mounted on top.

Once the photo was in place, I added my title alongside it. I used the this one time at chipboard title from Kinder Kreations; along with some small black alpha stickers from Flutterby Designs. To draw attention to my photo, I also added a handmade denim and hessian chevron embellishment from Charms Creations.

The small phrase stickers I used around my page were also from Flutterby Designs.

To finish off my page, I added a few splatters of Colour Blast 'Sienna' Colour Shimmer Spray, which is a beautiful copper colour.

Thanks for stopping by today so I could share this with you. I hope I have inspired you to get inky!
