This JUST in: A Kraken has invaded Swirlydoos OH NO!

Hi...and welcome to Heather's 
Off the beaten path
"Lets get Kraken"
Scrapbook page
Lets just dive right into it!
Different....isn't it!  
This is not my normal type of page for a swirlydoos kit.
The colors were bright and fun...not so Romantic.
So I just stepped out of the old
and did a more Artsy page.
I was to lazy  to use any machines last  I just drew the images and then cut them out of paper from my January Kit.  I learned a fun technique over at 
Scrapbook News and Review Magazine
Scarlett there is doing some tutorials on Mixed media.  Fun!  This tutorial simply used crayons and Ranger Inks and a roller.
I used a white crayon on my  waves and then inked with Chipped Sapphire.  I used a blue crayone to outline the "kraken"..and then inked him in Fired brick.  I drew bubbles and "motion lines" through out the background with a blue crayon, as well as  a tiny ship in the lower left.  Inked all of this with Chipped sapphire.
I also used Ranger's perfect pearls in Turquoise and Luminarte Fadiant Rain in Key add some glitz to this layout.  It is hard to tell in the photos..but it is sparkley.
I took another piece of paper from my kit to create the scroll.  I drew it out, used a Raw Sienna crayon and Ranger inks in tea dye and walnut stain.  The lettering I did using my Favorite font LDI Fancy Folk.  I  just printed, created an offset and cut it out.  It too has been inked and glitzed.
The photos are from the boys first swim meet.  Neither of them could see the end of the pool...LOL.  I guess we will be purchasing prescription goggles.

Thanks for Interesting post today!
