Scrap Our Stash Sketch Challenge – Love Noah

Hello and welcome to my post about the Scrap Our Stash Sketch Challenge for May, and my take on the challenge.  I have used some selfies I took with Noah when he was a baby, and as he will soon be 11 I thought it was time to scrapbook them.

The challenge was to follow the Sketch and use stash items for each letter in the word “Mother”, and I used:

  • M – Metal charm, Mist
  • O – Oval diecut
  • T – Tree Cabachon
  • H – Heart stickers, Heart embellie
  • E – Enamel stars
  • R – Resin star

I love layering embellishments and including meaningful details in my layout, which worked perfectly with this sketch and letter challenge.

I dug through my stash of Cocoa Vanilla Studio embellishments and my bestie Joanna’s paper scraps to find what I needed, including some plastic stars, flair, puffy stickers, enamel stickers, flowers, etc, etc, etc.

My background was created with the smushing technique I have been playing with and perfecting over the past month, and I am very happy with the results.

You have a few days to go if you want to enter the Scrap Our Stash Sketch Challenge for May – plenty of time…..

Happy Creating and have a wonderful day

Scrap the Girls – April 2017 – Forever Fun

Hello and welcome to my take on the Scrap the Girls Moodboard Challenge for April.  I couldn’t resist doing this challenge as the teal colour family is my favourite of all the colour families, and the many beautiful textures in the Moodboard were inspiring too.  

I have used the colours represented in the Moodboard, including the peach and cream in two of the images.  The additional colours helped my layout to become more dynamic and gave a depth to the layers – without it everything seemed the same and flat.

I have included flowers, a watery background and hearts to represent some of the elements in the Moodboard.  I have also included a bird as a substitute for the car – both are always going somewhere and represent Freedom and Travel.  The photograph is of our beautiful daughter, Naomi-Jon who just happens to be learning to drive and exploring her own Freedom.

The textures in the Moodboard evoke a sense of layered beauty, which I tried to convey with the many and varied layers in my finished layout.

You have a few days to go if you are going to enter the Scrap the Girls Moodboard Challenge for April – plenty of time…..

Happy Creating and have a wonderful day

Scrap Our Stash Sketch Challenge – April – Always Happy

Hello and welcome to my post about the Scrap Our Stash Sketch Challenge for April, and my take on the challenge.  The photographs are of Amelia-Ann doing her usual chewing on something that doesn’t necessarily belong to her.

The challenge was to follow the Sketch and use stash items for each letter in the word “Flower”, and I used:

  • F – Felt Flowers, Flowers
  • L – Lace
  • O – Opalescent Orange Sequins, Orange Lettering
  • W – Wooden Words, White Word Sticker
  • E – Epoxy/Enamel Dots
  • R – Resin Roses, Resin Heart

I flipped the sketch horizontally to accommodate the orientation of my photographs and the direction Amelia-Ann was looking in.  I have used the Wild at Heart collection from Cocoa Vanilla Studio, and some other embellishments in my Cocoa Vanilla Studio stash.

I have used light orange Liquid Pearls on the Wooden Words to give them a pearly, glossy and textural finish.

You have just a few days to go if you are going to enter the Scrap Our Stash Sketch Challenge for April – plenty of time…..

Happy Creating and have a wonderful day
