Viking Hat or Not? Layout by Zsoka Marko

Friday, May 10, 2019

Hey there crafty friends, Zsoka Marko back today with a new layout I've created with the fabulous Horizon collection! I seriously can't get enough of these papers! I've been on a rainbow kick lately it seems... But when all the colors of the rainbow are there in a collection, I find it hard to not use them all! I've had this photo of Maxim on my desk for months now and just couldn't use it on any layouts before. Normally I do the layout and then select a photo that matches from the pile I have on my desk. It is not a huge pile but normally it works. But this one just didn't make sense on anything, even though the colors were perfect for any rainbow layout. So I asked Paige to design a Viking Ship cut file for me because I REALLY wanted to scrap this photo. So there you have it, the coolest Viking Ship cut file! I love it, it's so perfect!
I cut the design from textured white cardstock then backed it with loads of different patterned papers. It was important that I can use rainbow colors (Maxim's scarf has rainbow colors) and the flag was perfect for this! I also added rainbow colors behind the shields (according to my kid those are shields, so... shields then!). The waves needed to be blue of course as well as the background and I'm super happy with this background paper because it looks like sky and water. And for the boat itself, I thought green will be fine and when I placed this paper behind the cut file, it looked like dragon scales to me. Happy accidents! Once done, I was trying to figure out what I wanted to do with the page. I glued down the ship in the middle using foam tape to add dimension and also because I wanted to tuck embellishments behind it.
I layered some tissue paper behind my photo and glued it down, sort of like he is sitting on the ship lol! I loaded his suitcases too :D. Too funny. This collection is perfect for travel photos, which is what I have the most of, so of course I love working with it! I especially love all the Epoxy Stickers because there are a few themes to choose from, they come in rainbow colors, so I can add them to pretty much all my layouts! One more thing I did, there was this triangular sticker that just screamed flag to me - I made a pole for it from a chipboard frame and tucked it behind the photo.
I added my journaling with a white gel pen and as I see I forgot to stamp my date haha! I wanted to add it on that chipboard ticket but would have had to sit down to my PC and search for the picture so I decided to do it the next day... Obviously it did not happen. Oh well :). Last but not least I splattered white acrylic paint all over my page.
That's it! I hope you like how it turned out and I could inspire you in a small way! Thanks for stopping by today! Have a wonderful day!
