I have followed the sketch as closely as I could using some of my favourite Prima products, especially the paper which I have used several sheets of to get all of the fussy-cut elements and the background.
I love hos these photographs capture a moment in time in Naomi-Jon’s life when she didn’t wear glasses (evident by her obvious light sensitivity) and her Eczema wasn’t completely controlling her life.
I am back tonight to share my layout I have created for the Scrapbooking Top 50 May Challenge, which was a sketch.
The photograph I have used is of my friend Jenny and I, taken at the Creative Inspiration Live event in Brisbane in February. Jenny and I first met at a Scrapbooking event over ten years ago and finally caught up again at another awesome Scrapbooking event.
I have used the leftovers from an album I made a friend to give her Mum late last year, which included lots of flowers, papers and little bits of embellishment goodness.
I also used some of my favourite Cutting Dies and micro flower punches to make better use of the scraps I had leftover. I don’t have a lot left in the pack, maybe just enough for another layout and a card – stay tuned…..
So that is my take on the May challenge from Scrapbooking Top 50, and now it is your turn to create with it too:
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:
Mothers Day is fast approaching and I wanted to share an easel card I created for a special commission last Mothers Day – although the purchaser never collected or paid for the card I still love the results. I have used lots of cutting dies and handmade flowers – created with cutting dies, a shaping tool, Prima Chalk Ink and Ranger Perfect Pearls Mist.
It is that time of the week again when I reveal the Scrapbook layout I will be teaching at my store (Scrapbook Fantasies) on Wednesday @ 10am & 6.30pm and Saturday @ 10am, a masculine layout created with the Kaisercraft Pawfect collection – but there are not cats and dogs in sight. Please note that it is a essential to book for the Wednesday night class.
The class is only $17, which includes a kit and use of my tools and mixed media supplies. I do ask that you bring along basic tools and adhesives, including a trimmer and brown/pinecone edging ink if you have them.
I am back to share my interpretation of the More than Words Challenge for this month, which somehow reminded me of the beautiful L’Aquarelle papers and embellishments I had sitting on my desk.
The Challenge is to use the word Beautiful with a Butterfly (or Butterflies) and I knew just the photograph I would use – yes another one of my oldest daughter Naomi-Jon who has always been beautiful on both the inside and the outside.
A few layers, some fussy cutting, glitter, mist and die-cutting complete my layout – which I just love. I especially like how I could combine purples, teals and peach in such a harmonious way with the help of awesome papers and embellishments.
You only have couple of days to go if you are going to enter the More than Words Challenge for March – plenty of time if you set your mind to it…..
It is that time of the week again when I reveal the Scrapbook layout I will be teaching at my store (Scrapbook Fantasies) on Wednesday @ 10am & 6.30pm and Saturday @ 10am, a bright layout that was such a pleasure to create.
The class is only $17, which includes a kit and use of my tools and mixed media supplies. I do ask that you bring along basic tools and adhesives, including a trimmer if you have one.
