DT Reveal – 123 Challenge – May 2017 – Family

Hello and welcome to May and a new challenge at the 123 Challenge Blog, using one of my favourite colours (Teal), my favourite type of people (Family) and one of my favourite tools (Stencils).

I have used a photograph of my brother and I with our Great Aunt Shirley and Great Uncle Keith, both of whom are no longer with us – and are very dearly missed.  I was pregnant with our oldest son in this photograph, and the event was a 21st Birthday Party I had organised for my brother.

I chose to create my layout with the Kaisercraft Island Escape collection and a whole heap of embellishments and goodies – some I created and some I had lingering in my stash.

I have used Lindy’s Stamp Gang Mists, white Gesso and Stickles to create my layered Mixed Media background.

That is it from me for the time being, and it is over to you to create with this beautiful challenge at the 123 Challenge Blog:

Happy Creating and have a wonderful day

Show Us Your Stuff Recipe Challenge – April 2017 – Father & Son

Welcome  back to my little blog and another post about a Challenge I couldn’t resist trying – the Show Us Your Stuff Recipe Challenge for April.  The papers and some of the embellishments I have used were a challenge given to me by my bestie – Joanna Ford.

I started my layout with some Embossing Paste and a stencil, followed by layers of watery Lindy’s Stamp Gang Mist and Golden High Flower Acrylic Paint.  I have included washi tape, chipboard, fussy cut banners and lots of paper layers in my design – amongst other bits and pieces.

The Copper Coffee Stains were created with a Darkroom Door stamp and Copper Lindy’s Stamp Gang Mist.  The sequins were leftover from one of my classes at a Scrapbook Fantasies Retreat in 2016.

The chipboard Starfish were sprayed with Copper Lindy’s Stamp Gang Mist before being coated in Glossy Accents.  The Seahorse was a whole experience of it’s own, with the following list of layers (in this order):

  • Embossing Paste
  • Heat
  • Copper & Teal Lindy’s Stamp Gang Mists
  • Heat
  • Copper & Teal Lindy’s Stamp Gang Mists
  • Heat
  • Glossy Accents
  • Heat

I heated the Seahorse to the point of almost burning each time to get a good bubbly texture and crusty finish

I used Weathered Wood Tim Holtz Ink and a Blending Tool through a stencil for added visual texture in the background.  The white spots are the Golden High Flow Acrylic Paint, that I have put in a fine tipped applicator bottle for better flicking.

Well that is my take on the Show Us Your Stuff Recipe Challenge for April, and now it’s your turn…..

Happy Creating and have a wonderful day
