Echo Park Blog Hop Oshkosh Layout


Fun times with Imagine and Echo Park Paper, we are having a blog hop!  (The blog hop list is at the end of this post.)  Remember to leave a comment for a chance to win prizes from Imagine and Echo Park Paper, one comment per blog post please!  I have been planning this layout since the blog hop started taking shape as I knew that Echo Park and Carta Bella had some amazing paper collections and dies and stamps that would work perfectly with my intended airplane theme. 



My family has attended the Experimental Aircraft Association’s annual event in Oshkosh, Wisconsin several times even though the round trip is about 4,000 miles from our home in Central Oregon.  We were fortunate to attend again in 2016 along with my parents and siblings.  The hardest part of creating this layout was selecting a limited number of photos!  The Echo Park Jack & Jill Boy paper collection paired nicely with Carta Bella dies and stamps and a few Imagine products to make a quick and easy layout.

Skill level:  Beginner
Time:  1 hour

Directions:


Step 1:  Use a Sponge Dauber to ink with Brilliance Starlite Silver and the Carta Bella Vintage Airplane stencil on desired background paper.  The beauty of a directional stencil and ink is that once cleaned the stencil can be reversed and have the airplanes face towards the middle of the layout.  (Side note--I placed the inky stencil on white cardstock and ran a brayer over it for use at a later time!)


Step 2: Die cut and stamp airplane and hot air balloon from coordinating red cardstock and Memento Paris Dusk.  Die cut the Vintage Airplane body from red cardstock.  To maintain the color scheme, use a sponge dauber to ink a section of the red cardstock and die cut accent elements for Vintage Airplane and assemble.

Step 3:
Ink edges of photos with Memento Paris Dusk to add just a hint of color.  Print journaling on white cardstock. Trim and adhere selected papers and photos to background cardstock.  Adhere title stickers and number stickers to each photo.   Another side note--I really like the airplane paper and want to use it on layouts for both of my son's albums.  It was easy to stretch my supplies with a little ink and a stencil!

  17. when I saw Oshkosh my first thought was jeans.
    Learned something new today - it also means
    experimental aircraft exposition. The pags
    are wonderful. You did a great job fitting in
    a lot of photos in a small space.
    thanks for sharing.
