Layout: 'Reading with Grandpa'...


Reading with Grandpa
Skaitau su Seneliu
[more photos below]



I really liked the entire sheet of the acrylic stamps 'Love Books ST506 '  by Hero Arts - Studio Calico, so unable to choose just one, I've used the entire sheet to stamp and emboss the above card.


***
This page was inspired by a few online prompts:

* My fellow lithuanian scrapper's Assol's challenge to use a theme of 'contrasts and opposites'; My interpretation of this challenge was to use opposites of old (grandpa) and young (son)....oak (old) and acorn (young).

*Simon Says Stamp: Favorite Technique: My technique being stamping a whole sheet of acrylic stamps to get a larger background. Also, I seem to never get a dark enough image stamping with just black Color Box pigment ink, so additionally embossing it with black powder makes the image truly black.

*The other challenge I was inspired was CSI Case No. 32 with the following inspiration board (see photo below). 
I've used the required color palette with a sneaky addition of mustard yellow to make the colors 'pop' a bit more.
-For 'Evidence' I've used:
 1.) Textured paper background which is raised relief/embossed, and...
2.) Dots on the washi tape.

-For the 'Testimony':
I've journaled about a collection of National Geographic Kids books which I've brought on our trip to Jordan to visit our sons' grandparents. Grandpa was more than happy to read with his grandson. Here in the photo they're reading about venomous snakes.

Šis skrebukas esa įkveptas kelių konkursų:
-Assol: 'Kontrastai ir Antonimai'; Šiam skrebukui pasirinkau ne spalvinį sprendimą o teminį: 'Senukas/Jaunuolis'.....'Ąžuolas/Gilė.

***Su šiuo skrebuku nedalyvauju mainų rato konkurse ;)

-CSI Case No.32: vartoti pateiktą viršuj virtualią plančetę kaip pradinį tašką.

Truputėlį apie techniką: 
Neperseniausiai įsigyjau naują silikoninių antspaudukų rinkinį gamintojo Hero Arts - Studio Calico 'Love Books ST506'; Nesugebėjau pasirinkti tik vieno, tai finale nusprendžiau sumontuoti ant akrilinio padelio ir štampuoti visus. Kadangi pati esu gryna bibliofilė, numatau kad šis antspaudukų rinkinys dar dienos šviesą pamatys ;)

Apie nuotrauką:
Momentas įamžintas gruodžio 2010m. Jordanijoj pas senelius; Į kelionę pasiėmiau serija 'National Geographic-Vaikai' kadangi vyresnis sūnui geriau knygos negu žaislai. Sūnus skaito su seneliu apie nuodingas gyvates...išraiška ne jauki ;)

Dėkui kad apsilankėte ir nepagailėjote kelių žodžių!

Nuostabus ir labai prasmingas skrebukas! Labai jautri tema ir be galo patiko idėja ąžuolo ir gilės kaip palyginimo senelio su anūko. Ačiū, kad pasirodei su tokiu grožiu Mainų rate :)

O geras. Nereali nuotrauka. Su tokia bet koks skrebukas atrodytu gerai. O tavo rankose jis tikrai tapo meno kuriniu. Labai patinka tie stampai apie meile knygoms - man tai labai artima, nes pati esu didele knygu myletoja. Jau ne pirma karta matau, kad panaudoji knygos puslapi, labai gerai ziurisi.

Net negaliu išskirti kažką, man viskas patiko šiame skrebuke.

Nors ne, galiu, tie štampukai apie knygas - nerealūs. :)
