Hello Weekend Adventure by Charmane Koch

 Hey guys! Happy Friday! I love Fridays.... because that means WEEEKEND!

Since the horrid "Covid" Ashan & I have started going on Date Nights & possibly stay the night somewhere else - of course not too far away! I created a layout of us, I still need to do the rest of the weekend! haha!

This layout I have created using a mix of Road Trip papers and some Bee Arty dies that I think matched well with the papers!

I started off with this gorgeous paper for the background - Open from the Road Trip Range... How gorgeous is this paper? I didn't even want to USE it! All the papers are just beautiful!

This reminded me of the Metal Die Arrow - "Seeker" from the Follow your Dreams Range & also the stamp from the Fearless Brave & Free Collection....

So I decided to cut out the Seeker Die twice using the Breathtaking Road Trip Paper. I also cut out the word Adventure from the Road Trips Word Die & decided I needed more layers so also cut out the Honeycomb Metal Die from the Love & Grace Collection.

To create the stamped effect I have mixed Heavy White Gesso with Polar Mica Powder to create a light blue paste that matched really well with the paper, as I wanted it to blend in, but still be seen.

I dabbed with a sponge dauber gently on the stamp - I must admit I did test it out on a spare bit of paper to make sure it worked!

I have layered papers tearing some and distressing others to create lots of texture on my page, also adding the Honeycomb Die in different layers of the paper too.

Here are some extra closeups...

I finished off with some machine stitching & a few extra embellishments from my stash... and of course journalling!

Here is the final outcome...

I hope I have inspired you to have a play with the Road Trip Collection & maybe mix it up with different Dies & try out the stamping technique too!

Happy Creating Everyone!
