"Give Way", by Amanda H

Hi everyone!

It is hard to believe it is the end of September! Today I am sharing a page from my trip to Amsterdam back in April. I have just visited there again and was reminded just how much you need to give way to bikes on the roads and footpaths! Crazy! I love the colours and tones of Amsterdam and it is fun scrapbooking the memories of my trip.

Here is a sneak peek of the layout, before I show you how I created it.

I decided to do some embossing on a piece of corrugated cardboard. I collected my Colour Embossing Powders, choosing the colours: Dusty Charcoal, Sienna and Leather.

I painted some random patches of clear embossing liquid on the sides of the cardboard.
Then, I sprinkled a mix of the three embossing powders into the embossing liquid. Then I heat set with my heat gun. It looks messy and grungy and pretty cool!
I also embossed some 2Crafty Chipboard chevrons with Sienna Colour Embossing Powder.
And more chevrons embossed with Dusty Charcoal Embossing Powder.
I splattered some Sienna Colour Shimmer Cube over the embossing on the cardboard.
And also splattered some Dusty Charcoal Colour Shimmer Cube as another layer on the cardboard.
I started assembling my page, including layering some washi tape to the background. I added some more splatters to the background over the washi, using Dusty Charcoal Colour Shimmer Cube. I also lightly painted the edges of the background paper.
Similarly, I added some fine splatters using Sienna Colour Shimmer Cube.
Lastly, I added some subtle black stamping to the background.
Here is my final page and some close ups.

See you in October! Thanks for looking!
