There's a lot out there in the way of scallops. I sort of went a little technique crazy with mine and you'll see there's a lot of scallop action on this page.
Let's start with the fact that I used this Studio Calico Mask to create the background. Scalloped pendants on a banner (which could also be considered a curved scallop).
I misted it in three colors (OA Sprinklers Screen Door and Sidewalk and Mister Huey's Clover), moving the mask and attempting to line it up in rows across the page. I got my idea from something Emily Pitts had posted on Scrapbook and Cards Today's blog.
Once the background was mostly dry I used that mask again and wiped some modeling paste over the top, applying with my finger. After that dried, a little Ranger Distress Faded Denim inking helped bring some depth to the banner.
There's another scallop though - scroll back up and check out that border at the bottom of the page. It's just a die-cut from Authentique's Journey but the die cuts from the kit were a perfect complement to the photo of David pulling Vance on a family bicycle outing.
The idea of using all those little Authentique pieces came from my friend Michele, who posted a similarly styled page on the Scrapbooksteals Facebook page recently.
And if anyone can tell me how to use mists and such without major page warping I'd love them forever!
