Scrapping Outback March challenge

Sneaking in ONE more challenge for March!

This time, for Scrapping Outback.... "White with a twist"....

Easy to be inspired by these colours!

Here is my page and some close ups!

To create this background, I sprayed pink (then blue) on a heart stencil, and put it upside down on the white cardstock, using my brayer to get the negative of the stencil. I then inked and coloured with the turquoise colour using my Tim Holts distress stain and pen.
Doodling and washi tape for the border.

Charms Creation DIY heart, as well as some D-lish Scraps embellies. Found an old ladybug fabric covered button, not sure where I got that little beauty from!

My chipboard: a few little Imaginarium Designs arrows, coloured pink to match the layout!

JOT mood Board for March

Welcome to my blog.....

I always love the details and charm in a Jot Mood Board and I was stoked that I found time this month to join in....

March 2016 - Mardi copy

Here is my page and close ups.... I really ended up playing the GREEN, not sure how that happened....

I bought that cute AC Dear Lizzy mason jar stamp ages ago, so it was awesome to finally use it! Added wood veneer as the embellishments (from D-lish Scraps), as well as some bows and flowers.

Scrapbooking Top 50 - March challenge

Another "sweet" challenge at this month.

Here is my page and some close ups:

White cardstock and some watercolours and posca pen doodling. Then added my layers of papers (Bo Bunny and Studio Calico) and embellishments!

I painted a wood veneer word (from my recent JAP kit from D-lish scraps), as well as adding a vellum cloud bow from Rainbow Splendour and a Flutterby design flair. Can you spot the Charms in there too?

Added some colour to the DIY Charms Creations circle and terrific tab.
Also wood button and paper flowers from D-lish Scraps.

Love this old kite from my stash!

Kraft Plus - March challenge

Great challenge this month at Kraft Plus!

Current Challenge

Here is my page:, and some close ups!

I printed some "Christmasy" words and houndstooth pattern on a piece of Kraft, and also used black texture paste through a Heidi Swapp Houndstooth stencil for the background.  Then added the layers of papers, washi tape, paint splatters, doilies, word stickers and embellishments.

I bravely cut a beautiful book paper Charms Creation circle (coloured with Heidi Swapp mist), and placed it on either side of the photos.

Paper flowers, flairs and sequin bow from D-lish Scraps.

More than words - March challenge

I liked this challenge at More than Words!.... had to give it a go!

And here is my page......

I stuck washi tape, a doiley, paper strips, plasters mesh to the page and then GESSO's over the lot! I found some really OLD Heidi Swapp Mask letters to create the word "BLISS" in the title. Added water colours and paint splatters and textured paste too! Transparency photo overlay is hard to photograph - makes the photo look a bit funny!

Heart stencil from Flutterby designs.

Flowers, bow, leaves, doiley and enamel dots, from D-lish Scraps.
Music paper heart (painted with watercolours), from Charms Creations.
And most importantly.... it features a photo of my grandparents on their wedding day! xoxo.
Thanks for looking!

White with One - February

Another challenge at WW1 this month:

With purple not being my favourite colour, I ended up stamping and doodling and colouring in using one of my daughters textas!

Saved my some Washi tape and a few purple embellishments.

Also: Charms Creations Super Star and Rainbow Splendour glitter foam leaf.

Thanks for looking!
