New Moon Experience

The challenge over at Twilight Tuesday this week was to scrap your New Moon Experience. Since I made my cousins take pictures with me that night for the soul purpose of scrappin' them, I thought this was as good of a time as any. Since the movie poster for the movie was all in sepia tones and kind of woodsy (see picture below) I went with that theme.

There were a lot of 1st on this page for me but I had this image in my head that I had been toying with and it ment using a bunch of different methods to accomplish it. I started with some Bo-Bunny dot paper, I used the suede side and sponge inked some of the edges and corners in Vintage Photo distress ink from Tim Holtz. Then I used the swirl from Fictionally Speaking set from Artful Inkables to stamp the paper (EEK!!! That was a 1st). Then I wanted the moon on the paper but sort of subbtle so I didn't want to use paper. There again I inked around where the moon was going to be and then used some Glimmer Mist in Daffodil in the inside of the moon (EEK!!! Another 1st). I love how that turned out!
My trees were all cut from Doodlecharms in various different sizes and papers, some bo-bunny dot paper and some shimmer cuttlebug paper. Then I pop dotted a few.

This is by far one of my most favorite layouts. Here are some close ups that are a little blurry but you get the idea of the techniques I used.

I also distressed the matting on all the pictures and inked the distressing. (EEK!!! Another 1st!)



Love it! Love all the distressing! So much fun!


I love it! It looks awesome!
