Scrap 365 May Layout Process Video (And Another Page!)

When I posted my Hot Forest Layout for the Scrap 365 May Sketch Challenge I mentioned that I had a process video to share. It’s taken me a while to get it finished as there has been lots going on here with my trip to London, and then visits from my Sister-In-Law and then my Mum!

Now there’s only 4 Days left to enter the May challenge, so be quick to make something, you might win a massive pile of Prima goodies!

Here is my Page Process for my Hot Forest layout…

Watch this video in You Tube: Page Process – May Sketch Layout for Scrap 365

What do you think of the process video? Would you like to see more videos like this? I’ve invested in a new microphone  recently (I used it for this video) so I’m hoping I’ll get better at them now!

I’ve also managed to make another layout with the same sketch. Here’s the sketch as a reminder in case you didn’t watch the video…

And here’s my new page with the same sketch…

Hello River:

Hello River by Jennifer Grace

This shows me and my friends walking along the river in Oxford at my Belated Hen Party last year. It was fun girly gossiping time!

This time I’ve used the Prima Something Blue Collection:

Along with some more of the ‘Deers, Owls, & Mushrooms’ Scrap 365 Wood Shapes:

Deers, Owls, & Mushrooms Scrap 365 Wooden Shapes

I didn’t alter most of the wood shapes this time, as they stood out quite nicely against the background anyway:

Though I did alter the Prima Cartographer wood veneer compass below – the wood was a bit unevenly coloured, so I just rubbed a black ink pad on it to give it an even coating:

I used a couple of the Something Blue stamps, the ‘Remember’ one above and the ‘Dated’ one below, which I loved until I wrote the wrong date in it, then I had to think creatively to cover it with a sticker and the right date:

I hope this shows how the sketch can be used in different ways! Don’t miss out on your chance to win this prize package:

Scrap 365 May Sketch & Hot Forest Layout!


Welcome to the May Scrap 365 Sketch Challenge! This month we are using this fabulous sketch:Scrap365 May Sketch Challenge

This month the sponsor is Prima! There will be a Prima prize for one lucky entrant… and the Design Team were lucky enough to receive a few Prima goodies to play with. I received some items from the Princess Collection pictured below:

And here’s what I created… I did record a process video while making this layout, but we’ve had a few visitors come and stay so I haven’t had time to finish that off. I will try and post it at some point though!

Hot Forest:

It’s about one very hot walk we took in the local forest last summer, it was baking hot!

I flipped the sketch a little because I had a portrait orientation main photo.

Do you spot some lovely wood shapes on here? The Deer, Owl and Mushrooms are some of the lovely new Scrap 365 Wooden Shapes:

Did you know Scrap 365 were selling these now? There’s so many cute shapes to choose from!

I painted the deer below with Heidi Swapp Coral Colour Shine and white acrylic paint, for the mushroom I used blue and white acrylic paint:

I left the owl up near the journaling plain because it was so detailed and pretty that I didn’t want to spoil it:

The cog and the hot air balloon wood shapes are from the Prima Cartographer Collection:

I love how the soft papers from this collection make the layout feel warm and peaceful!
