A Trip to the Zoo + a Tutorial with Lori!

Wednesday, September 24, 2014

Hello and Happy Wednesday!!  
I typically catch up on my son's scrapbook in the fall and winter since our activities slow down. Today I created a two-page scrapbook using our newest kit (We Are Family) and a sketch.  We have an amazing zoo in Omaha, NE.  Our newest attraction is the Sting Ray Pool.  You can pet and feed the rays.  They are very cute and show a lot of personality!

I grabbed a few sting ray photos along with Skyfari photos (a slefie of Tanner and I and a photo of Mike and Tyler in the car behind us).
When I have several photos I like following a sketch - especially when I don't have a lot of time.

I started with Carta Bella SCRIPT DOTS paper from our We Are Family kit.  I order an extra set of papers each month so I can put together 2 page layouts.
I used brown and green Magicals mixed with Glossy Accents to paint the wood tree branch.  Above I mixed the green powder. 
I accidentally broke off a piece of the branch - no worries I will adhere it down in place. 
I used Glossy Accents to adhere the tree branch to my layout. 
I used my Cameo to cut out some more branches and painted Miracles on them as well. 
I used the Magicals once more.  I thinned them down a bit with extra Glossy Accents and painted the banner flags.

I cut out my titles, City Zoo fence and tabs with my Cameo.  I inked my papers with my black PITT artist pen big brush.  I used a couple of stickers from the kit and a bit of washi tape. 
You can find the supplies I used below:
