Bored Waiting, ScrapJam LO & RAK


ScrapJam immediately followed our return trip from HK (literally the night before!) so I barely had time to have photos made and get ready for scrapping. Of course, I thought I was pretty well-equipped for the event, only to find out I didn't bring my cutting mat, my blade, photo tape, sander, Maya scrolls, flowers, ribbons, etc. I had to borrow from my scrap buddies just to make it through!

Hence, when judging for the LO came, I didn't expect to win, nor even place as a runner-up at all! With great scrappers, Lee, Bjay and Donna, in my table blowing our minds with their skills, plus the talents of Cabbie, Mia, Nita, Au, Alby, Jeanie, Gracie, and so many others present, I just didn't have a chance. Still, I just went for my target of making 1 finished LO given everything stacked against me.

We were required to use the 3 papers given to us, plus Thickers bought on the spot, and also to use any stamp. Good thing, I had my Studio Azul Kit with me so I was able to use the boy stamp and the tag provided therein. The tag was great as a hidden journal, and fortunately, Scrapbooks-Hawaii sold ribbons of the exact color as the papers I got!

I decided to put the 3 papers one on top of the other, making some kind of stairs. I made the kraft paper as the first base, with the brown, then the red pp on top. In order to fit the 12x12 size, I had to recut these papers so that the total will still fit my albums. I also hand-tore some of the edges.

Journal: April 3, 2009. Hongkong International Airport. You were hungry, thirsty, tired & bored, waiting for our return trip to Manila. You're a real trooper.

Techniques used: Stamping, layering of papers, hand-tearing and rolling of edges for distressing, folding of papers and photos plus sanding to make white lines across everything, crackle painting the undressed Thickers in 2 colors, rubbing 2 Glimmer Mists on the edges of the kraft paper (without shaking the bottles to lessen the glimmer part), handwritten journal.

Materials used: Basic Grey pps, SR pp, misc. kraft paper, Thickers Shoebox, Prima Accents Cavalier Collection Brads, Studio Azul Kit tag, mm Love 2 ribbons, 7 Gypsies Gaffer Tape, Ranger Distress Crackle Paints (Tattered Rose, Shabby Shutters, Aged Mahogany, Brushed Pewter), StazOn Black & White Stamp Inks. Stamps used: Studio Azul Kit Boy & Girl Stamp, Prima My Rose Ledger & Postage Stamps.

Here's the RAK I luckily won! Thanks, Marisa of Scrapbooks-Hawaii, Yoyin and the ScrapJam Team! Love the RAK!
