Let's Scrap 12-17-14

Here's my take on this week at Let's Scrap. It's a Mother's Day card which #2 made for me 2 years ago. Yes, it was still in my to-scrap box so I decided to use it this round. The background was mainly random inking exercise from months ago. Come play along at Let's Scrap!

Stick It Down - September 2014

Here's my Sept layout with Stick It Down, and guess what? This is a photo of snowskin mooncake filled with mango and pomelo. Yummy! Again, this background is one of the mass misting done in a night. I did alternate misting with Dylusions to create for alternate colors but not quite getting the sunburst outcome, and added a mask somewhere on the page. The page came out pretty monochromatic - in the ORANGY manner! Do check out the site for other inspirations by the talented bunch at Stick It Down! Have fun!
