Show us your stuff December challenge - Scrapbook Layout "Happy"

Hi Scrap Friends

Today I'm sharing my page for the December challenge at 




My hand made item is the flair from "Just add flair"



No automatic alt text available.

I am seriously loving this collection from DCWV.
You can find it here in the Scrapbook Boutique store.


I've flipped the sketch to suit this paper - cactus are not really my thing but I quite like the final result of this page.
I've done some fussy cutting as this collection doesn't have any die cuts or stickers ...
really made me think a little hard about the papers available to me.


For the background you'll find Colour Blast Shimmer spray "Envy", some stitching, stamping and sequins to finish.


Thanks for visiting.
Happy Scrapping.

--- A2Z Scraplets DT --- "Pensive Moment" Scrapbook Layout

Hi Scrap Friends

Today I'm sharing a layout for A2Z Scraplets

My layout "Pensive Moment"


This page started with the background paper.
It's from the Project Life "Azure" 12x12 collection.
I trimmed out some areas of it and highlighted the background using washi tape and
Colour Blast Spray in Saffron.
I've applied the spray to a stencil, over the craft mat, then flipped the stencil and pressed the pattern onto the white cardstock background - I love this effect.


This Pensive Moment Chipboard is such a great fit for the photo.
I've covered it with white gesso, then coloured with Distress Crayon and then finally - lightly sprayed with Colour Blast Spray "Indigo".


With such a busy background, I didn't need to add too many embellishments, so I chose some simple stamping, cotton thread and a wood veneer.

Thanks for visiting.
Happy Scrapping.

--- Colour Blast DT --- "So Much Fun" Scrapbook Layout + process video

Hi Scrap Friends

Today I'm sharing a new project for Colour Blast

My Layout "So much fun"



For this page I've used

Colour Paste Sunshine
Colour Paste Envy
Colour Spray Road Base
Colour Spray Saffron

***

Firstly I've started with white cardstock 12x12 and a sheet of patterned paper which I've torn.
Underneath the line of the tear, I freehand used a spatula to "Paint" some of the paste onto the cardstock.


While the paste dries - it's super quick - I've coloured these chipboard circles with Black Heavy Gesso.


Next I want to make some templates the same size as the chipboard, so I trace them onto white A4 paper and cut out the insides.


I chose this stencil because it adds another circular element to the page.


I worked out where the chipboards where going to go and then individually laid out the template and the stencil to apply the Colour Paste Envy.
Peel the template away and your left with circles of paste.
Repeat this process after each one has dried completely for all three circles.


Once dried I've laid the chipboard pieces over my circles for a lovely neat look.
I've also added some splatters of Colour Spray Road Base to the background.
Some doodling and embellishments + title means I'm ready to add the final photo cluster.


I've used the Colour Spray Saffron to colour this plain banner.


I've finished with some sequins and my photo cluster.


This photo is one recently taken at Dreamworld.


I love the combination of the paste with the black chipboard.


This is not a colour combination I would normally think of, but I really like the Sunshine & Envy.


You can check out the process in the video below.



Thanks for visiting.
Happy Scrapping

Artastic Challenge Blog - December scraplift challenge "Adore that face"

Hello Scrap Friends

Today I'm sharing a page created for the December challenge at 

My layout "Adore that face"




This month the team challenged us to Scraplift one of the Design Teams favourite pages. 
There was some really awesome pages to chose from, but this one from Tone, really stood out to me.


I've created my background with Colour Blast Sprays and the packaging technique.


Other elements on this page are from a recent Kitaholic Kits grab bag!



With so much inspiration from the DT, I may just have to lift a couple of the other pages.
I really enjoyed having the thought taken away and simply copying someone elses page.

Thanks for visiting.

--- White with 1 CT --- December challenge reveal "Love" Scrapbook Layout

Hi Scrappers

Gosh I love the first of the month.
New challenge time ...
Being the month of Christmas, what better way to celebrate then with the
White ... with 1
colour challenge this month.

Here is my inspiration ...

"Love:


First I gathered some appropriately coloured supplies - including papers, embellishments, title and mediums.


To create the background I've mixed Colour Blast Shimmer Dust "Candy" with water and painted stripes onto white cardstock.
Adding a couple of little splatters too.


I've added some strips of patterned paper and some vellum.


This photo is of Master Z and his Pop pushing him around on his Christmas Go Kart!
I chose the photo because of the little pops of coordinating colour.

Can't wait to check out your creations.

Thanks for visiting.
Happy Scrapping.

--- Scrapbook Boutique DT --- "Hello" Scrapbook layout + process video

 Hi Scrap Friends

Today I've got a layout to share for Scrapbook Boutique 

"Hello"


I started this page with circles in my mind - inspired by this photo which I trimmed into a circle.

I've used the Project Life "Azure" collection.



I've simply cut some various size patterned papers - focusing on blues.
I've inked around the edges with black and mounted some with foam tape to help give the page dimension.


The background paper was a little busy for my liking, so I've added some white gesso to mute it.
Then using a Kaisercraft template and Distress Oxide "Fossilized Amber" I've added some coordinating colour to help separate the blue circles.
