Journey {Scrapy Land #84}

It's time for a new Scrapy Land Challenge and I decided to create a monochromatic scrapbook layout.  I used the following dies to embellish this layout:

Frantic Stamper: Journey
Frantic Stamper: Sphinx and Pyramid
EK Success: Travel
Die-Versions: A Little Lime font

The papers are digital and are by Carta Bella (Transatlantic Travel).  I started off by printing the digi paper twice.  The first one is the base page for the layout and the second printing was so that I could die cut from it.

The "Journey" sentiment was die cut five times (four from white cardstock and once from the printed paper) so that I could get a lot of dimension.  I also used a COpic marker to darken the sides.  I could have die cut one more layer from black cardstock to get basically the same effect.  The Sphinx was die cut twice, once from the patterned paper and once from black cardstock.  I added a pop dot under his chin for more dimension.

The Pyramid was also die cut from both black cardstock and the printed cardstock for a shadow effect.  The bottom right corner is pop dotted for a more realistic look.  I chose this die as there is a glass pyramid in front of the Louvre Museum.

Le Louvre was die cut three times for more dimension (2 times from white cardstock and once from the printed cardstock) and the edges were highlighted with a Copic marker.

The geo tag, which points to Paris on the map, is part of the EK Success Travel set and was also die cut multiple times for added dimension.

I enjoyed creating this "non-traditional" layout and you will probably be seeing more in the future.  😄

Be sure to check out all the new designers' projects and then upload your own project to the Scrapy Land Challenge.  There are two winners, each of whom will receive a $10 gift certificate to go shopping at Scrapy Land.  The theme is Anything Goes using any brand of die that Scrapy Land sells.  You have until March 4 to play along with us. 😀
