Good day. We’re almost onto December & this has got me inspired to create festive projects lately. I love Scrap Around the World’s festive November mood board:
My main inspiration is the wooden star on top of the lit tree, & also the top left image’s white wood & “Most Wonderful Time” sentiment.
“Most Wonderful Time”
This is my first mixed media Christmas layout, & I had fun creating it :). We don’t get snow in our side of the world but I really wanted to add some “white” touches to the page, hence the splatters of white paint.
I’ve added some media on the hessian paper & layered a star silhouette cut out from a white wood paper. This is then layered under the sepia photo, giving it a nice frame & just the right amount of texture & shimmery color. Various alpha stickers are added at the right side as inspired by the board. I’ve added a little touch of heart on the photo as well.
She’s very happy & delighted to have Santa visit & give her a present from her preschool. She couldn’t stop talking about it to everyone for weeks! 🙂
Thanks for dropping by & I hope you enjoyed my post today. A big thanks also for the fab inspirations of the SATW team. Enjoy the rest of your month!
Hi there. How’s it going? My daughter has started going to school & I’m so happy seeing her enjoying it. This year has gone by so quickly & before you know it, it’s already Christmas!
Today I’m posting a layout for Scrap Around the World’s super awesome October mood board by Heather Mcmahon:
It is very inspiring & as a lover of rainbow colors, I simply had to join in the fun. I went outside my comfort zone & used white background instead of patterned paper. I did not even add any paper layers at all. Here’s my layout:
My main inspirations are the top left image of colorful burst of ink & the bottom middle image of circles & kaleidoscope of rainbow colors.
Even the black & white photo is die cut round to match my youngest daughter’s round face & cheeks : ). Surrounding it are a variety of circles in different colors & applications. Chipboards, beads & colors are layered & it’s all finished off with a cherub resin, camera charm & a few flowers to surround a cute toothy smile.
Thanks so much for popping in & I hope you enjoyed my post today. There’s heaps more amazing inspiration at Scrap Around the World here, so do check it out. Have a great day!
Hi there. So nice of you to drop by. Today I’m sharing a layout for Scrap Around the World’s beautiful July mood board by Pam Ellis (one of my favourite SATW DT member :)):
My main inspiration is the top right image with the lovely blue colors & the butterfly, plus the pink color of the staircase. Here’s my layout:
“Love Adore Cherish”
I was very inspired from Louise Nelson’s techniques from SENZ last weekend. She’s such an awesome artist & thanks heaps for the wonderful class, & I sure had a good time! The use of chipboards, wire & beads I learned from her, & I applied that to suit my layout. I added a faint water coloring of pink to the edges of the cardstock, & I applied this color to the butterflies as well. It’s a pretty good match to the mood board’s color, plus I do love the color pink 🙂
Of course I had to add a few flowers (not too much, lol), some texture paste through a star stencil, & just a hint of stamps & splatters, & most importantly the journaling.
Thanks so much for all the lovely inspirations, I do appreciate them. I hope you’re having a great month! 🙂
Good day it is! The sun is finally shining & has put a stop to the grotty wet winter weather. Please Mr. Sunshine last all the way through the weekend!!! I’m also finally getting over the flu & had the chance to create a layout & play along my favourite scrappy challenges. First up is Scrap Around The World’s decadent, celebratory mood board by Helen Tilbury:
My main inspirations are the round sprinkles on the martini glass, the pearl studs on the high heels, & the saying: “Life should not only be lived, it should be celebrated!”
I’ve combined it with Prima’s May BAP, sketch designed by Jennifer Snyder:
Here’s my layout:
My daughter’s photo here was taken on an ordinary day, but we decided to play dress up anyway. She’s got a shiny & ruffled pink dress on & what a great day it was! There’s so much fun to be had with young kids 🙂
The photo is framed with Prima’s burlap sheet. I love the Stripes resist canvas, which I’ve misted with my Prima Color Bloom Sprays & Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists, keeping to the purple & brown colors from the Butterfly tags & papers.
Isn’t the gold glittery heart on the stick just adorable? Lots of pearls, bling & stars which is inspired by the mood board’s pearl studs, decadence & round sprinkles. The Licorice Glass Beads ,cabachons, stencil, & stamps are from Finnabair, except for the heart stamp which is from the Butterfly collection as well, & the rectangle stitch stamp from Prima.
Thanks heaps to the team of artistic souls from Scrap Around the World & Prima who always inspire me. And thanks for taking the time to drop in 🙂
Hi there, how’s it going? Only a few more sleeps to go & we’re onto a new month! Oh how time flies. Last night I got inspired & made some time to scrap. I created a layout featuring the gorgeous curly locks of my daughter. I’m entering it for Sketchabilities Sketch #133:
And the gorgeous February Scrap Around the World mood board by Tatiana Sidorenko :
The main inspiration I took from the board is the beautiful hair. I was also inspired by the lovely green colors, curls/swirls & the lush fauna. Here’s my layout:
“Curly & Cute”
I’ve die cut a few swirly leaves in green & stone color/print paper for the cluster. I also stamped some leaves on a couple of corners.
I added some strips of light lime green bling at different angles.
I painted the letter chipboards black, then embossed them gold with a woodgrain stamp (except for the letter “y” which is the left over from the chipboard piece).
I shaped a heart from one of the mini paper bloom’s stem. Isn’t it so cute? 🙂
I added some seafoam green color to the heart veneers, inked the edges & added some alpha stickers on top. I’ve die cut some doilies from some light yellow green vellum, then folded them in half.
So there’s my layout. I hope you like it as much as I do. I got so inspired by the gorgeous photos, I couldn’t stop creating this page last night (I had to restrain myself at some point, so as not to overdo the layout…lol!). Again, thanks so much for all the inspirations & I look forward to next month. Thanks for popping in & have a great day! 🙂
Hi there. How was your Christmas? I hope December is treating you well. ‘Tis the season to be thankful, so I got inspired to scrap my daughters, as they make me the luckiest mom ever! I’m entering this layout for the following challenges:
Scrap Around the World moodboard:
Cest Magnifique sketch:
Here’s my creation:
I really enjoyed working with the delightful sketch & moodboard. As you can see, the main inspiration for the moodboard are the blue chevron prints, as well as the heart from the bottom left image. Thank you for inspiring me & I look forward to a great new year!
Hi there. So nice of you to drop by. I’ve created a layout based on 2 challenges. The first is from Once Upon A Sketch, & the theme for this month is “Inspiration”. Here is the November sketch:
The second is from Scrap Around the World, & here is the November moodboard:
I was inspired by this lovely moodboard’s doilies & flowers. Here’s my entry:
“You Inspire Me”
My journaling is written at the back, stating that my daughter has always been an inspiration for me. She always shows me how to be happy & to enjoy life everyday. Her bright personality & outlook on things is so infectious. She inspires me to be a better mom every time, especially when I’m not having the best of days. Most importantly, she has taught, & is still teaching me that I’ve done a great achievement in my life.
That’s it for me today. I hope you’ve had a great month so far.
