Coffee Moments: Layout for Scrap Africa

Happy March everyone! Here in Finland we still have plenty of snow, but when you look at how much more daylight there is every day, it's easy to tell that spring is on its way.

My Coffee Moments layout for the new Scrap Africa sketch challenge is made with pictures of Mothers' Day last year.

This is the super cool sketch by Denise van Deventer:

I am also joining the Coffee themed challenge at Mixed Media Place Creative Gym.

I did some dying with real coffee on the collage papers I used to mat the photos.

And the Stamps and Stencils challenge with the theme of Splatter, Spritz and Smooch! The stamping and stenciling is not very visible on the background, but here's a photo that shows a bit of both.

Before the stamping and stenciling, I also used gesso on the background, and finished with layers of different mists and tiny dots of Stickles glitter glue.

I am loving my Sizzix Frameworks Trellis die! I got it recently and have been using it in most of my layouts since then.

Thank you for your visit and I hope to see you soon again! I would also love to see you joining Scrap Africa - the challenge is on until March 14!
