GDT: Camper Scrapbook Page

This is my second July post as Guest Designer for Imagine That! Digis by Kris.  Her blog is HERE. Please visit to see other design team makes and current challenges.

A couple of weeks ago, my sister and her husband visited us for a week.  They brought with them their small Airstream Bambi travel trailer.  My four year old granddaughter and her younger brother paid them a visit to see the inside of the camper up close and personal.  She now owns the Barbie Airstream!!!!

You know what's coming next, right?  I had to make a scrapbook page of their visit.   I love that Kris gives us both precolored digis as well as outlines that we can color to suit our needs.

I used a lot of really old stuff in my stash to make these pages.

Starting with two pieces of 12x12" blue paper, I used a brayer to apply wet Ranger distress ink in broken china and salty ocean.  Then I sprayed on some Ranger distress spray stain in picket fence and dabbed with a sponge.

I ripped strips of asparagus Coredinations cardstock, ran them through the Big Shot with the Provo Craft bird call embossing folder, and sanded the raised embossed grass

Other Materials:
Provo Craft the Third Dimension Stand Outs: shaker sun wood embellishment
Fiskars Heidi Grace Chipboard Shapes Baby Boy
Various bits and bobs for embellishments
Foam adhesive, Scor Tape and FinnabairArt Basics Heavy Body Gel
Black Sharpie
Hand Made Modern Satin acrylic paint: leaf

I used The Great Outdoors Kit which you can find in the store

I colored the boy and girl with Copic markers, but printed out the pre-colored camper so that I could use the matching paper for my digital photos mini composition.  (I used the marshmallow for my journaling spot!)

The flags ae made with triangles of variouis patterned papers from Argyles and Plaids Digi Papers set found in the store HERE.

I have to tell you I was sitting at the art table with my granddaughter and was trying to decide if I should use large or small pennants when she suggested "making a pattern" ---so I did, alternating large and small.  So smart!
