Scrap Around the World May Mixed Media Layout "Sweet" using a secret ingredient

Hello Scrap Friends

Thanks for visiting today to check out my May entry for Scrap Around the World.

I'm excited to share this layout as it is totally outside of my comfort zone.

Introducing "Sweet"

It is Scrap Around the World's Epic Event for May - being their birthday month.
I got really excited when I first saw the moodboard.
Instantly the photo of the cocktail with the sprinkles had my mind working.

You really need to check out their epic event here

Why???? I hear you ask.

This .....

Giant jar of sprinkles that were hiding in my cupboard.
I really wanted to see what would happen if I used 100's & 1000's on my layout.
(Note: There are literally 100's and 1000's of them all over my craft room floor 
following completion of this layout)

Here are some close ups!


 To build the background, I started with inks, sprays, stamping, washi, embossing and stencils. 
I wanted to run the colours like the cocktail glass.
Then I swiped a layer of modelling paste and sprinkled with "100's & 1000's"
I love the texture and colour it's given to this layout.
The photos are of my boys enjoying their first soft serve icecream cones - 
inspired by the picture of the icecream!

Loving the 2 Crafty Chipboard title too!
