His & Hers

Let’s take a moment to honor the ANZAC soldiers who fought for our freedom.  They are heroes that will forever resonate and leave a mark of fortitude and honor.  ‘Lest we forget.

Today I’m sharing a mini mixed media printer’s tray with Scrapmatts chipboards and stencils, mixed with 13Arts’ His & Hers paper collection and mediums.

“His & Hers”

Scrapmatts Chipboards: Mini Rectangle Tray (CB6114), Ornate Frames (CB4069), Assorted Words (CB6115), Butterflies (CB1028)

Scrapmatts Stencil: Bubbles (ST5001)

I’m very fortunate to have worked with the amazing Aida Domisiewicz during Autumn Escape 2017.  She is the sweetest and loveliest artist I’ve met and I’m in awe with her work and 13Arts products.  I got her His & Hers collection and a variety of her media on my hot hands and incorporated them all on the printer’s tray.

13Arts materials: United Forever Paper, Multi Medium, White Gesso, Modelling Paste, Lilac Rainbow Color Duo, White Splash Ink, Pink Glitter Splash Ink, Gold Glitter Splash Ink, Warm Gold Shiny Powder, D5 Glass Spheres, D3 Glass Spheres, Silver Mica Flakes, Silver Glitter

I’ll do another post very soon with all the excitement and photos of Autumn Escape 2017.  It really was Autumn Escape’s best yet and I reckon it will be very hard to top this one off.

I couldn’t help but create straight away as soon as I got a set of delicious 13Arts products.  I had such a blast making this mini tray from start to finish and I hope you enjoyed today’s post.

Imagine – ATC Hanging Wall Art

Happy Easter to you!  It’s nice to be creating and blogging again after a very busy start to the month.  We have a new April “Feathers” Challenge up at the Creative Studio for Canvas Corp Brands:

This month we have a different prize – we will invite the winner of the challenge to be our Guest Designer in June. This means that you will get a box filled with goodies from all 3 Canvas Corp Brands to play with! 

To enter this challenge you need to link up your entry  Blog post, or post on Instagram, Facebook or Pinterest (link to the actual project – not the whole page) by using the linkytool HERE. You have until the end of May 5 to submit your project!  All submissions must have #ccbchallenge somewhere to be considered.

Here’s my April “Feathers” project:

“Imagine” ATC Hanging Wall Art

Canvas Corp Brands Materials:

Tattered Angels:
Navy High Impact Paint
Chalkboard Mists: Grape Ape, Black Orchid, Splash, Chalk
Glimmer Mists: Sapphire, Night B4 Christmas, Dragonfly, Periwinkle Bouquet, Abominable Snowman, Pearl, Crushed Shells, Gold

Canvas Corp:
Denim Fabric Sheet
Teal Burlap Flower
Dark Blue Burlap Sheet
Sisal Rope
Natural Hank Cord Rope
Cream Hank Braided Rope
Chocolate & Ivory Feathers Reverse 12×12 Paper

7 Gypsies: Lace Trimmings

I was inspired by the whole mood board…the gorgeous deep shades of blue and purple, the feathers, and the dream catcher.

I thought what a great idea it would be to transform an ATC into a hanging wall art inspired by the concept of dream catchers.

I’ve also used a couple of gorgeous Scrapmatts chipboards and stencil for this project:

Scrapmatts Chipboards: ATC10-008 Rounded Corners 01, CB1028 Butterflies 18, CB1238 Scrap Words 24

Scrapmatts Stencil: ST5033 Stencil Triangles

I really wanted to add layers and layers of color and texture throughout this hanging ATC wall art.  If you look closely you’ll see crackle here and there, dimensional butterflies against the stenciled triangles immersed in Tattered Angels paints.  I really love every single nook and cranny of this project.

I hope I’ve inspired you to join our awesome April “Feathers” Challenge.  Simply link up your entry HERE.  There’s an amazing prize pack and guest design spot up for grabs.  We can’t wait to see all your beautiful creations.  You’ve got 20 days to enter so get creating.

Enjoy your Easter weekend!

#Look At Me

Today I’m sharing a layout with Scrapmatts chipboards and Tattered Angels mists, and it is also the second time this month that Scrapmatts is guest designing for CSI-Colors, Stories, Inspirations.  This time we’ve solved CSI Case File#226:

It is also inspired by My Creative Scrapbook’s February Sketch:

Here’s my take on both inspirations:

“#Look At Me”

For the base of my layout, I simply flattened a piece of good ol’ corrugated cardboard and painted them with white acrylic paint.  I love the texture and ridges it gives the background plus the sturdy base.

The background colors are layers of gorgeous Tattered Angels paints.  The #look at me chipboards are given a good mist of Cadillac Pink Glimmer Mist.

Tattered Angels Paints: Navy High Impact Paint, Splash Chalkboard Mist, Glimmer Mists (Mint Julip; English Ivy; Cadillac Pink; Tutti Frutti)

Scrapmatts Chipboards: Circle Mesh (CB5130), Assorted Words (CB6116), Cats (CB1014), Leaf Spray (CB5166), Scrap Words (CB1238)

The rest of the Scrapmatts chipboards have been given a coat of white paint…easy, effective, and works every time.  The leaves were die cut from a scrap of white paper which I’ve given the bubble technique with Tattered Angels’ English Ivy Glimmer Mist.

This is the first time my daughter tried on some bubblegum lip gloss.  She got it from a party loot bag and boy oh boy did she love it.  I’ve written at the back that it makes me happy scrapping and looking back at the moments when she’s growing up to be a girly girl.  Time surely flies!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed today’s layout.  I had fun creating it and it got my daughter’s seal of approval too (lol!).

Many thanks to CSI for having the Scrapmatts team and for My Creative Scrapbook’s awesome sketch.

Pink Mixed Media Apple

Today I’m sharing my off the page pink mixed media apple inspired by Berry 71 Bleu’s February Challenge:

15823263_10154066152091781_5181218238541316045_n

Isn’t the mood board gorgeous? It’s absolutely perfect for the month of love, gorgeous soft pink shades and flowers.  Here’s my take on it:

I was inspired by all the pink colors and florals from the mood board, and the feeling of love.  I’ve used Scrapmatts’ chipboards and stencil to build my pink apple.

Scrapmatts chipboards: Ornate Frames (CB4069), Leaf Spray (CB5166), Scrap Words (CB6113)

Scrapmatts stencil: Borders (ST1010)

For the beautiful colors, I layered a few Tattered Angels Paints to achieve the balance of soft, with little hints of bright pink to tie it altogether.

Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists: Tutti Frutti, Cadillac Pink, Black Cherry, It’s Pink, Pearl

Tattered Angels Chalkboard Mists: Polka Dot Pink, Chalk

I had fun creating my little apple, and I hope you like it as much as I do.  Thanks so much for popping in and I hope you’ve been spoilt on Valentine’s day.

Cheers,

Your Time To Shine

It’s so nice to finally get some decent days off from work since the madness of school holidays started.  This means extra time for me to scrap (wooohoooo!) so I played along with My Creative Scrapbook’s January Sketch Challenge:

january-sketch

I pushed my photo up while still keeping to the body of the sketch.  Here’s my layout, I hope you’ll like it as much as I do:

“Your Time To Shine”

Your Time To Shine

I’ve used Kaisercraft’s Ubud Dreams collection for this page.  I love the gorgeous prints and colors of this collection, which goes so well with my daughter’s photo.

054

I also used Scrapmatts’ chipboards and stencil to this page.  The Ornate Frames chipboard gave the layout a delicate layer and framed the photo perfectly.

055

The adorable Flowers chipboard have been inked and layered among the frames and flowers.

057

Some subtle stenciling has been added from the Hexagons stencil, keeping to the colors of the layout.

Thanks so much for popping in.  Thanks to My Creative Scrapbook’s awesome sketch, I had fun playing along.

Cheers,

Celebrate One

Good day! I’ve been very busy with family and work commitments lately which meant I wasn’t able to create for More Than Words’ December Challenge.  So for this month I made sure I had time to create for the awesome January challenge which is “Celebrate & Bling”:

mtw-201701-main

Can I just say that I looooove this challenge.  Bling runs in my scrapbooking veins :).  Here’s my layout:

“Celebrate One”

Celebrate One Today

This is my youngest daughter’s 1st birthday photos which I adore so much.  She’s a few years older now but that doesn’t stop me from scrapping and reminiscing on older photos, celebrations, and treasured memories.

018

I’ve used some Scrapmatts chipboards and stencils for texture, dimension, and title for my page.

Scrapmatts Chipboards: Nested Stars (CB5021), Assorted Words (CB6116), Butterflies (CB1045), Scrap Words (CB1237)

Scrapmatts Stencils: Leaf Spray (ST5004), Strings (ST1021)

012

I really wanted the photos to stand out which is why I opted for a full on black background with shimmery pearl and white touches.  To achieve this I used my trusty Tattered Angels paints.

Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists: Pearl, Graphite, It’s Black

Tattered Angels Chalkboard Mists: Chalk, Admiral, Monolith

0131

I embossed the stars chipboards with some glittery black embossing powder and then layered these under the photo.  The photos are framed with black glittered paper.

I misted the Admiral Chalkboard Mist and the Graphite and It’s Black Glimmer Mist onto my flowers to blend with the black background.

0101

For the butterflies, I simply misted the Monolith Chalkboard mist for a subtle addition of color.  For the title chipboard, I simply painted it white and then added a coat of Chalk Chalkboard mist for added glimmer.

023

The shimmery background is made up of the Pearl Glimmer Mist, Admiral and Chalk Chalkboard Mists.  It’s all finished off with the addition of a variety of bling around the layout.

026

So there’s my blinged up, glittery and shimmery celebration layout.  Thanks to More Than Words for the awesome challenge and thanks for popping in.
