DT Reveal – Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge – May 2017 – Boat Captain

Posted by on 4 May 2017 in Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge, Scrapbook Fantasies, Scrapbooking | 0 comments

I am back today to share my May DT layout for the Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge – which is to create a layout about a Pet or Toy.  I have used the Pawfect collection from Kaisercraft which we stock at Scrapbook Fantasies.

I have used Lindy’s Stamp Gang Mists to create a watery background, with touches of Violet just to show that our beautiful little grey human (Madeline) is a girl.  Madeline loves her boats, and is a bit protective of them when they return home each time.

So that is my take on the challenge and now it is your turn to create a Pet or Toy layout for the May Challenge at Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge.

Happy Creating and have a wonderful day

DT Reveal – Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge – Easter

Posted by on 5 Apr 2017 in Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge, Scrapbook Fantasies, Scrapbooking | 0 comments

I am back today to share my April DT layout for the Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge – which is to create an Easter or Spring layout.  I have used the awesome Easter collection that is instore at Scrapbook Fantasies.

I did lots of fussy cutting from the papers, including the title – made some banners and did a bit of mist flicking on the background.  The biggest challenge was finding some Easter photographs that I hadn’t scrapbooked already.

So that is my take on the challenge and now it is your turn to create an Easter or Spring layout for the April Challenge at Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge.

Happy Creating and have a wonderful day

September DT Reveal for Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge – “Bliss”

Posted by on 14 Sep 2016 in Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge, Scrapbooking | 0 comments

I am back today to share my September DT layout for the Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge – which is to create with Red.  I haven’t used any patterned papers, just cardstock and embellishments.

afsc-september-2016-alicia-redshaw2

The title is a Heidi Swapp die and red cardstock, over a feather left over from my Retreat pack from the Scrapbook Fantasies Winter 2016 Retreat.  The glitter on the background is still hanging around in my studio, appearing on random projects and children – very sticky and loaded with static.

The gorgeous flowers are from the Colour Me Happy range from Cocoa Vanilla Studio, and along with some silver thread, enamel accents, that glitter and a few other touches make for a pretty cluster of embellishments.

The butterfly template I have used on the background with Lindy’s Stamp Gang Mist is one of the most well used ones in my collection – a definite favourite.

Happy Creating and have a wonderful day

Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge – November 2015

Posted by on 11 Nov 2015 in Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge, Classes, Scrapbook Fantasies, Scrapbooking | 0 comments

The challenge this month over at AFSC (Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge) is to:

Close your eyes and blindly grab 3 items from your stash and incorporate it into a layout. You may use other items, and you may re-colour your items, but incorporate all 3 items into the layout.

AFSC-november-2015-alicia-redshaw

I followed the instructions and as my desk was pretty spot on organised at the time everything seemed to be too easy – yes too easy.  So I got thinking and when I was at work next I spread out a kit from all of my classes from the last few months (well what I still had kits for anyway) – and then I closed my eyes and randomly chose three kits.  I was pretty stumped with the results, as they really didn’t go together and the only similarity was they all had some kind of cream colour in them – what had I done!

The kits and the classes they were for…

I knew I had to treat all of those miss-matched pieces as I would a pile of scraps, so dragged out my Card Creations Butterfly Die and made a million (or what seemed like a million) Butterflies.

AFSC-november-2015-alicia-redshaw-b

I put the Butterflies on in a grid patterned of alternating inches, then flicked over some co-ordinating mists and Golden Titanium White High Flow Acrylic (as one kit included a bit of white too).

AFSC-november-2015-alicia-redshaw-f

A bit more die-cutting later and I had plenty of embellishments  for my layout, without it being too overcrowded and mish-mashy, even though I had all of that stuff that didn’t really match in the first place.

So now that I have shared my creation with the November AFSC Challenge it is your turn….

AFSC Sketch Challenge – July 2014

Posted by on 27 Jul 2014 in Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge, Mixed Media Art, Scrapbook Fantasies, Scrapbooking | 0 comments

AFSC Sketch Challenge - July 2014 - Alicia Redshaw

I have created this layout using the July Sketch Challenge at Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge (AFSC), and boy did I have some serious Mixed Media fun.

AFSC Sketch Challenge - July 2014 - Alicia Redshaw

I diecut the Cogs from chipboard before applying the Flat Shot/Clear Gesso mixture randomly, drying with a heat tool and then randomly applying (and heat setting) the Queen Sheba’s Silver and Midnight Gold Embossing Powders using the Versamark ink as an adhesive.

AFSC Sketch Challenge - July 2014 - Alicia Redshaw

I randomly applied swipes of the Magicals and the Golden Heavy Body Acrylic to the layout and layers once everything was put together.

AFSC Sketch Challenge - July 2014 - Alicia Redshaw

I used the circles template, Versamark Ink and Midnight Pewter Obsidian Embossing Powder to create the glossy/pearly spots on the background.

AFSC Sketch Challenge - July 2014 - Alicia Redshaw

Some of the other techniques I applied to this Mixed Media layout are distressing and inking the edges, misting and flicking the Lindy’s Starburst, fussy cutting page elements, stamping with the Newsprint stamp and Silver ink, collaging Tissue Wrap with Matte Medium and dimensional layering with foam adhesive.

AFSC Sketch Challenge - July 2014 - Alicia Redshaw

The photograph is of Milton playing the Cornet with the Gladstone Municipal Band after the Main Service at Anzac Day this year.  He had a very full day starting with singing (with school) at the Dawn Service followed by marching in two parades (Boyne Island and Gladstone) with the Band.  After each Parade there is a Service where they play the Anthems and Hymns, and then give a short concert style performance for anyone still in the Park.  The band plays some wonderful old tunes in these little concerts, many of which are favourites of the Veterans from their younger days.
