E is for Echo Park.........


It's time for December's A-Z Challenge over at Scrapbookers Anonymous and this month is the letter E, for this monthly challenge, I always use the letter of a paper manufacturer and I could only think of Echo Park for this one so that's what I used.


The photo of Paige and I isn't very good quality, it was dark and there was raindrops on the lens but I still really liked it and it's a memory I wanted to scrap. We were sat outside a pub overlooking the sea in Cornwall and all off a sudden from nowhere the heavens opened but rather than go inside we just sat with our brolly and finished our drink, like a true Brit,lol.
I used sketch #186 from Creative Scrappers for inspiration.

I painted the background with some blue acrylic paint and sprayed with TA Riptide, for more definition I outlined the stickers and alpha's with a black journaling pen. Everything on this LO is from Echo Park, I hope you can find time to join in the fun this month for the chance of winning some Studio Calico papers and embellishments also don't forget the main challenge of creating something with a tag and glitter. It hasn't got to be a LO, it could be card, altered art, anything as long as you follow the few basic rules, just have fun and use up some of your older stash.

Supplies
Papers: EP 'Life is Good'
Stickers: EP 'Springtime'
Alpha's: EP 'Little Girl'
Other: TA Glimmermist, Paper Artsy paint,

Happy Crafting
