I copied the image of the world from google images and printed it on some Kraft paper before messy inking and stamping and splatting it.

Why hello to you - VINTAGE Charms Creations Mini-Runner!!!!!!
Try to ignore the "again", where I made a typo and did a quick fix.

Thanks for looking!

Scrap the Girls November.

Sharing my page for the sketch at Scrap the Girls for November.

Here is my page and some close ups.

I used texture paste through a heart stencil on the white side, then used my water colours to paint yellow/orange side. I love this Scrapmatts circle chipboard that frames the photo. I inked it black and then gave it a shine up with good old Dimensional Magic (also sticking some sequins in while it was drying!)[#alwaysusesequins]
Scrapbooking with friends recently, my good friend Chris pulled out a bag of little chick sewing patches, that she had had in her stash for many years... She challenged us to use one on the page and I think that the little chick totally makes this page! [#hellolittlechick]

I coloured a Charms Creation DIY diamond with the watercolours, as I painted the page. [#perfectcolourmatcheverytime]

Hello, Little Chick!
(And awesome flowers and resin and enamel dots from D-lish Scraps)

And a resin butterfly, amongst some tags and circles!
Thanks for looking!

123 Challenge: October

Hi everyone,

Sharing my page for the challenge at 123 this month.

And here is my page and some close ups:

I created this background by tracing circles through a circle template. I then used Tim Holtz distress stains (twisted citron was the perfect LIME)  through a spotty stencil onto some of those circles. I plastic bag stamped for some random green splashes around the page. I also used the Tim Holts Distress ink pen (in cracked pistachio) to add some highlights around the circles. I also stamped with my old favourite maiden-hair fern stamp! After placing the white background on a spotty green background (same paper used to matte the photo), I also machine-stitched in black thread around the outside.

I embellished with:
Vellum envelope and vellum bow from Rainbow Splendour. I wrapped black twine around the centre of the bow for a different effect.

Oh... even an old Purple Pumpkin fabric button from my stash!

I also used paper flowers, resin flowers, old fabric flag and enamel shapes/dots, all from D-lish Scraps.

The clear black stickers from MAMBI were perfect too!
Thanks for looking!

Kraft Plus - October

Another fabulous page at Kraft Plus for October.

Kraft, plus "inspired by nature".

Here is my page and some close ups:

I created this background with texture paste through a script and word stencil. Then I stuck down some strips of washi as well as some of the chipboard hearts and the chipboard feathers (from Scrapmatts). Next I used Gesso but mixed with water to do the white-washed background over parts of the page, and including the chipboard. Then I sprayed some Dylusions spray mist (in Pure sunshine); I used a baby wipe to wipe some of the colour around, which was also handy to add the same colour to some of the paper flowers. A few splatters of Dylusions and of Heidi Swapp gold Color Shine and my background was done!

Some of the embellishments include:
Hessian leaves from Rainbow Splendour
Punchinella, paper flowers, resin flowers & enamel dots from D-lish Scraps.

But of course, for me, the title and the journaling are the most important part of this page. I need to scrapbook some of the difficult parts of my life, including fighting to save my marriage! Making this page, connecting with my heart and writing those words- gives me the strength I need for the fight. And it is all worth it!

Thanks for looking!
