The Studio Numbers Challenge

Sunday, March 26, 2017

Morning, y'all!  Just popping in with our second March challenge from The Studio.  We'd like to see numbers, in any way, shape, or form, on your pages this go around.  I used my March "Oliver" Citrus Twist Kit and a few photos from a past family vacation for my take.
I started this page with a few yellow and orange, watercolor puddles on the 12" x 12" watercolor paper, base page.  I then used a stencil to rub numbers, with Broken China Distress Ink, vertically, down the right edge of the page, before splattering everything with the same watercolors used above, as well as teal and green watercolors and Pure Black and Titanium White acrylic paints.  My photos were matted with white cardstock; backed with squares of patterned print, framed with gold-threaded, straight, machine stitching; and stacked, vertically, down the center of the page, just left of my stenciled numbers, over a kraft envelope, which I stuffed with some mementos from our trip.  The bottom left edge of that envelope houses my "wander TOGETHER" title, which was created from gold foil, chipboard Thickers and a teal, foam, glitter "wander" and grounded with a little journaling, which reads, July 26-29, 2010... Lake of the Ozarks... Osage Beach, Missouri.
The top photo was also backed with a bit of vellum for added interest and softening, as well as a cut-apart tag, laced with white string, tied in a bow.
The cluster in its top right corner includes a stamped, in Daffodil Delight ink, on white cardstock, and hand-cut sun, popped up with foam tape; stamped, in Melon Mambo and Garden Green inks, on white cardstock, punched blossom with hand-cut leaves and button center; gold foil, chipboard bird; chipboard, "Delight in the everyday moments" phrase; and a trio of cut-apart flowers.
I then topped each one of those previously stenciled numbers with foam, glitter numbers.  I adore the way these show gold glitter from the top and bright pink from the sides.  Too fun!  Each number was then used to record a detail from this trip, beginning with 5 decades of service from Tan-Tar-A Resort and 4 days of FUN...
to 3 hrs. from home, 2 happy kiddos...
and 1 Ozark Family Adventure for the bks.  A number of phrase stickers and stamped, in Jet Black ink, phrases complete each detail; and a few more of those stamped and buttoned blooms, as well as cut-apart flowers, complete the look.
Further inspiration for this page came from Citrus Twist's March 26th Sunday SketchIt came in my kit, but I'll update with the graphic just as soon as it's made available on the blog.
You have until Sunday, April 9, 2017, to link up your takes, on this Numbers Challenge and/or our previous, March Half Patterned Paper Challenge, in the right-hand column of The Studio blog.  Be sure to stop by the challenge link above to see how the rest of the team was inspired.  Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have an amazing week, friends!

I love this one! Love that you're going back and scrapping some older things and my favorite part is the layered thicker numbers over the stenciled ones.
