Okay, I’ve played with modeling paste, and this week I ventured off into fiber paste. My scrapbooking group set up a challenge to scrapbook about friendship. I immediately thought of this picture of my BFF Chris. We e-mail or talk almost every single day—you see, I live on the Pacific side and Chris lives on the Atlantic side of the good ole United States.
Since I wanted to mimic the ocean’s waves and the sand, I tried fiber paste, then colored it with inks. I used a curvy, wave-like stencil. I wanted to make the paste more wavy, but I just couldn’t get the hang of it.
I also did a quick spray of mist, mimicking the ocean’s mist. I don’t know how people do it, but I can only put down a heavy mist. Maybe I need to take my page outside and mist in the driveway and hold the mist further away? I might try that this weekend.
Anyway, here we are after dipping our toes into the very, very cold Atlantic Ocean.
I had been saving the shell wood veneers (Close to My Heart) for the perfect layout, and this was it. I put my Silhouette to good use, too. However, thinking it through, I probably should have stuck with one title. But other than that, I kind of like it!
