Survivor - March

Soul Scrappers is celebrating the site's 10th anniversary in 2020, with a SURVIVOR-themed year long challenge.  It's modelled on the reality tv show, except there will be no eliminations.  I've signed up and I will be sharing my creations on my blog.

** Participants can sign up all year - and there's also a random element so everyone has a chance to earn points and win some scrappy prizes **

The theme for the March challenge is FIRE.

The challenge doesn't require the layout to include a photograph of fire, but I have a few good fireground shots that I took while responding as a volunteer firefighter during our most recent summer fire season. This layout will be a companion page for THIS ONE. I didn't go with an exact match for the page, because I wanted to create something unique and different for the Survivor challenge.

I created my background flames by sponging paint and texture paste through a stencil:

I added white paint pen for definition, and sprayed with iridescent mist to simulate the smoke and embers. I also used the stencil to create some patterned paper and foil paper flames, to add layers and dimension:

I used a Rural Fire Service T-card to record the main details, and I also journalled on the remainder of the card (taped to back of layout).
