Note to self | Sanna Lippert

Hello there, Sanna here again and it´s my turn to share a layout with you today.  Are there any coffee lovers out there amongst you? Well, I need to confess that I tend to drink quite a lot of coffee and I just love the smell of freshly brewed coffee. The coffee themed stamp set in the shop is super cute, so I used that stamp set as my starting point for this page:

I´ve used various Studio Forty clear stamp sets on this layout for various reasons. I like owls - and I am a night owl - so I figured it would be a perfect match for this page to use some owls with the coffee theme. I stay up late and then I am sleep deprived and then I need coffee to wake up and to keep me going... see where I am going with this? So, basically that is what this page is about. Coffee keeps me going ;-)

I´ve used spray inks to color the fussy cut,  stamped images. I first stamped them onto white cardstock with a waterproof black ink, then I colored the images with matching spray ink tones.
I added a layer of spray ink onto the background using a piece of plastic as my transfer medium for the ink. This technique creates a nice random pattern, but much bigger color areas than if I would just add the colour as direct splatters from the bottle onto the page. And this way I have more control of where the colour is supposed to go.
I first stamped the owls and all other images with black ink onto a thicker paper that absorbs spray inks well, then I used a fine paint brush to color the images with the spray inks. The owls add a fun detail to the page.
Also fussy cutting the stamped images adds more interest and texture to the layout than just directly stamping onto the background paper. Besides, this way you have more control of your images and should one of them turn out poor, you can simply toss that one and stamp a new one and your page will not be ruined by a poorly stamped image.
I´ve again added a date stamp onto the page just to document when this layout was created and what kind of ideas and thoughts had been going thru my mind on that day. So this layout is abit like everyday diary keeping.

That´s it from me today. I hope you get inspired by these ideas. When was the last time you documented something about your everyday life, habits or thoughts?

Happy scrapping,
xxx, Sanna
