Happy to be back sharing another 'Holiday' Creation for Scrap Matrix.
I've created step by steps again so you can see exactly how I created this one.
I could do so many for this one. I think it's a time when we tend to take more snaps, but aren't that great at actually scrapping them and documenting the story.
Without further ado..... Here it is.....
A layout capturing our love of boogie boarding and wave chasing.
To go with the beachy vibe, I decided to use Kraft as my background.
I added heaps of woodgrain papers and tags to really give it that beachy feel, and teamed it with some painted stripes for a funky teen/surfy feel.
So let's get started on creating this one......
I painted white vertical stripes onto the Kraft paper using Dylusions paint.
Don't overthink this part.....just do it!
I then added a few splatters.
I focused the stamping around the area that my cluster and photo would be.
I cut out some different woodgrains.
These are all on the reverse side of the turquoise woodgrain paper which is a 7Dots Paper
Love it when a paper is so versatile.
I made sure with the layering that the 'Wild and Free' was visible. This was just too perfect for my photo. I HAD to use it. In fact, it makes a perfect title for the layout.
I then slipped in a few 7Dots tags.
I really liked the turquoise honeycomb sticker from the 7Dots sticker sheet.
I liked it so much, I decided to cut some more in various sizes from my leftover pieces of paper.
I added these to my layout in a way that created movement across the layout.
To finish off this layout, I added a few flicks of Dylusions Spray Ink in Polished Jade (my favourite colour), some thread, some word stickers and a touch of journaling.

As the challenge is all about holidays - this can mean so many different things to different people.
It could be a recent Christmas page, a favourite holiday activity or destination, a tradition you celebrate, or, of course, a trip you have taken - or maybe just a memento from that special holiday...... Anything that evokes a memory of holidays.
I can't wait to see what you come up with.
