Ahoy Me Maties!! Arrr.... - a scrapbook layout


Happy Wednesday! I'm back again with a new 12x12 layout. I like it how a layout is able to tell you a story by adding a bit of journalling that goes with the photo. I have used a calligraphy pen for the journalling and so here it is, presenting to you a letter from a pirate to his fellow mates for yet another battleship! Arrrrrr..... Hehehe!

As you can see, I have used quite a number of Martha Stewart as well as EK's punches on this layout..hehe...I have used The Crafter's Workshop stencil as well; sprayed the Ranger's Colour Wash through it and later stick back the side which was wet onto the layout- that means you won't be wasting your ink :))

This layout is about the pirate calling out to his mates for another battleship, and it is done by writing on what supposedly to be a piece of 'parchment'. The paper I have used here, which if from my April DT kit; has a 'Carte Postale' and other words like correspondence and addressee on it; thus making it suitable for this layout title. Most of the materials used here are available at Papier. Don't forget to stop by the shop and get yours!

Till then, see you next time!

materials used:

Ink: Distress ink and Colourwash by Ranger

Grungeboard paper: Tim Holtz

Punches: Martha Stewart and EK
