White with 1 – May 2016 – Love this Girl

white-with-1-may-2016-alicia-redshaw

I am back tonight to share with you another layout I created at the recent Scrapbook Fantasies Retreat that I hosted, and this time it is for the current White with 1 Challenge – which is to use White with Tangerine Tango.

white-with-1-may-2016

Now anyone who knows me will definately know that I don’t shy away from a challenge, but seriously Tangerine is not a colour that I use very often – really if at all.  White on the other hand is one of my favourite go-to’s from Gesso to flowers to paint to mist and pens, pearls, etc, etc.

Thankfully I still had out the remains of my Cocoa Vanilla Colour Me Happy stash and just grabbed out everything white and tangerine – flowers, epoxy dots, a doily, epoxy hearts, leaves and letter stickers.

I had also taught a Watercolour technique the week before with orange and peach Kaisercraft mists, which got the flick treatment on the background and a light spray on the lettering.  This was followed by some Watercolour pencil hearts on the background too.

I borrowed the ink and glitter tape from Nana Joy, coloured the wooden words (Cocoa Vanilla too) with Liquid Pearls and salvaged some sequins from the leftovers of the Retreat Classes I taught (three classes in total).  Oh and there is also a key from Cocoa Vanilla there too, along with cardstock, pearls and thread too.

Anyway you have a day (and a tiny bit) to get your White and Tangerine Tango layouts completed, photographed and uploaded too – no pressure at all!

Happy Creating and have a wonderful day

ARTastic Challenge – Smiling Faces Memories

artastic-challenge-may-2016-alicia-redshaw

Hi and welcome to a cool Sunday afternoon here in Central Queensland and layout I created at the Scrapbook Fantasies Retreat I hosted last weekend.  I created the layout for the May Challenge at the ARTastic Challenge Blog which had an inspiration image and the criteria of Girls Only, and this is the image:

artastic-challenge-may-2016

I love the colours and the use of black and white meant I could get out some of the new Cocoa Vanilla Colour Me Happy paper I purchased along with my Prismacolor Watercolour pencils.  I didn’t want to colour the whole page, so chose my colours based on the inspiration image and some select parts of the design that would receive some Watercolour magic.

artastic-challenge-may-2016-alicia-redshaw3

Being a Girls Only challenge I couldn’t resist using a photograph of my two favourite teenage girls – Naomi-Jon and Keelin.  They are like two peas in a pod, and beautiful on the inside and outside too.

artastic-challenge-may-2016-alicia-redshaw2

The background of the inspiration image seems to have lots of layers of paint which I translated into layers of paper, flowers and embellishments.  Teamed with a wooden title that I have embossed with Aqua Embossing Powder from Couture Creations.

artastic-challenge-may-2016-alicia-redshaw6

The flowers, leaves, diecuts and wooden word are all from the Cocoa Vanilla Colour Me Happy collection too.

Well that’s it for me this afternoon, and now I am off to finish creating lunches for the week ahead (and the week after too) – so far I have twelve soup tubs, eight serves of chicken with rice, a dozen chocolate peanut muffins and a supersized batch of sushi rice (yet to be rolled).  After our steamed chicken and vegetables dinner I will have four more soups too.  Not bad for half a day in the kitchen.

Don’t forget to have a go at the ARTastic Challenge too – you have two days left!
