Most Wonderful Time

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”

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!

Love, Adore, Cherish

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 :)):

27 JUL 2015 MOOD BOARD PAM ELLIS

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”

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! 🙂

Cheers,

Celebrate

Good day! 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:

SATW 2015 MB 5 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:

“Celebrate”

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.

014

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 🙂

Cheers,

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!
