My Sweet Princess Layout

Hi, Today I'm sharing the layout I have made for Prima's Build-A-Page challenge. I decided to go with bright purple and blue for this page. I never really use purple for some reason but I really like it so I'll have try use it more from now on.


I mixed a small amount of the Colour Bloom Sprays (in Summer Sky and Iris) with the modeling paste for an extra bit of light background colour. For the circle I dipped a fine paint brush in the sprays and traced around a plastic circle shape I had. I also coloured the resist canvas with the sprays, and used the little diamond bits that came out of the canvas to stick around the page.
 
Here are my close ups

Follow Your Dreams Layout

Hi all, today my layout was made to enter the Once Upon A....Sketch October Challenge  and the Lindy's Stamp Gang October Color Challenge. The theme for the Once Upon A...Sketch this month was women/girls in our lives which was a good one for me since all my photos are of my little girl - this photo is another one of her trying to be a model. I can't seem to get photos of her being a kid any more - every time I get the camera out she starts posing :) And over at Lindy's Stamp gang they had some gorgeous colours in their challenge this month - which I'll actually link to their shop this time.


I used papers from Marion Smith Designs and Websters Pages for this page. Instead of stamping with ink I used Versamark ink and Lindy's embossing powder in Golden Angel Wings and Midnight Pewter. As for all Once Upon A ...Sketch challenges I added journaling to my page.

Dear Darlin' Layout

Hey there, I combined three challenges to create this page. I used the 13 Arts Challenge which was such a cool idea this month - you had to use a black & white photo, white paper and embellishments with all the colour coming from paints, mists and inks. Plus the title for the page had to come from a song title/lyrics. I chose my fav Olly Murs song "Dear Darlin" as my title, I have it on my playlist that I listen to when I scrap so I though it was perfect for my little darlings pic :) My colours for this page came from the Sassy Scrapper's October Moodboard which was pink for breast cancer awareness month. And lastly for my layout I used the Scrap 365 October Sketch.


 I started by cutting up the 13 Arts paper, Days and Nights from their Fly Away collection. I cut out the butterflies, postmarks, doily shape, words, etc - that paper had such beautiful images on it. Then I layered up my paper and flowers and went wild with pink paint and raspberry mist from 13 Arts. I also used some Scrap FX chipboard - the wings I covered in gesso and the mini swallows I painted with the pink paint. then  I glittered them both with Finnabair Art Basics- Light Pink Art Sugar mixed with gel medium. Plus I added extra glitter to the page to make it nice and sparkly.

Delightful Layout

Hi there, here is the layout I have created to enter the October challenges for Scrap Around The World  and  Blue Fern Studios. Scrap Around The World had a beautiful mood board this month, I was drawn towards the pics of the gorgeous shoe with the butterfly on it and the bird cage with butterflies. I loved the cream and yellow colours in those to photos so soft and beautiful. That's was I decided to join that challenge to the Blue Fern's Sketch Challenge - the Blue Fern papers  have the most lovely soft colours so I think the page came together really well.
I have to say I think this is one of my fav pages - I finally got my craft room set up which helped heaps (I've have my brother staying with us for the last several months driving me crazy) so now I have my spare room back and I don't have to use the kitchen table to scrap on anymore - YAY!!!!!!

I was having fun with my new Finnabair Art Basics 3D Gloss Gel on this page. I mixed it Lindy's Stamp Gang Magicals to colour some of the Blue Ferns Chipboard to end up with a cool bumpy finish. I also mixed the gel with some of the Finnabair copper glass glitter and used with the checker stencil to give some glittery squares.
I found this gorgeous glittered butterfly in my box of miscellaneous flowers that went so well with the Scrap Around The World Mood Board.

Dream in Color Layour

Hi, I've created a very colourful layout today, I used the colours from this months Scrap the Girls  moodboard, and my layout came from the sketchabilities #124  sketch.
I don't often use bright colours like this, but this is what I've found the most fun about entering challenges over the last couple of months - it's trying new colour combo's and layout ideas I probably wouldn't have come up with myself.


I started by added texture paste to the background through stencils, and layered on some paper. Then I added my colour, trying to dry the page between each colour so I didn't end up with a big brown mess. For the gorgeous Iron Gate wood flourishes I gave them a coat of gesso then added some subtle colour with embossing powder. The "Dream in Color" card came from Websters Pages Strawberry Fields paper.
 
Here are some close ups
