DT Reveal – Scrap Our Stash – July 2017 Tic Tac Toe Challenge – Lovely Girl

Hello again and thank you for visiting my post sharing my take on the SOS Sketch and Word Challenge for July, which includes an awesome sketch and the word – FIREWORKS.

The stash items I have used for the word FIREWORKS are:

  • F – Flowers, Feathers
  • I – Ink (through a stencil and splattered on background)
  • R – Resin Flowers, Rhinestones
  • E – Epoxy/Enamel Dots
  • W – Wooden Leaves
  • O – Overlay (filmstrip printed)
  • R – Roses, Ribbon
  • K – Key Charm
  • S – Sequins, String

Wow that was a long word, which worked perfectly for my layered shabby chic layout.  The photograph is of my dear friend Tricia, who we stay with when we go to Brisbane – and loves us just the way we are!  Oh, and best of all Tricia is a Scrapbooker too.

I cut the timber paper apart and distressed it before putting it back together on the double frames.  I have then used the ink and stencil randomly on the background before adding the layers of papers and then some splotches of shimmer inks.  

The photograph was added last of all after all of the embellishments which include flowers, leaves (diecut and wooden), string, key charm, ribbon, resin flowers, sequins, pearls, enamel/epoxy dots, filmstrip overlay cut into sections, diecut doily, feathers and rhinestones.

Well that is my take on the July Sketch and Word Challenge, and now it is over to you…..

Stuck?! Sketches 1 May 2017 Challenge – Lovely

Hello and welcome to my post about the Stuck?! Sketches 1 May 2017 Challenge, and my take on the sketch.  I have used some photographs of Naomi-Jon on her way to her Year 10 Formal last year, and yes this is another layout that I created at the recent Scrapbook Fantasies Retreat hosted by my husband and myself.

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.

So there you have it, my take on the Stuck?! Sketches 1 May 2017 Challenge:

Scrapbookng Top 50 – May 2017 – Scrap Friends

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:

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:

More Than Words Challenge – March 2017 – BeYoutiful

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…..

Happy Creating and have a wonderful day
