Kraft Plus - October challenge

Hi again,

Sharing my page for this cool challenge at Kraft Plus....

I used clear gesso on the kraft background, so when I used the water-mixed colours, they would not soak in. I added a layer of texture paste as well. The green and orange was created with Colour Blast Shimmer Dusts, which I also used to colour the ribbon, muslin and Charms Creation book paper Terrific Tab.

Behind the photos are: plasters mesh, a doily, brown paper bag, as well as the ribbon and muslin.

Other Blast from the Past items include:
metal brad
punches for the butterfly and flowers.
A fun layout to create! Thanks for looking,

Scrap the Boys - October

A fab Sketch challenge at Scrap the Boys this month.

And here is my take on it....

I gesso'd the background and once dry, I sprayed with water and started sprinkling Colour Shimmer Dusts from Colour Blast. Kinda smooshed and moved the colour around, dribbled, sprayed, used lids to make circles.... and generally made a mess. Add a few bits of green at the end!

Finished with resin glitter dots, flowers and sequin bows from D-lish Scraps.
It is definitely fun pulling out all those old photos and scrapping them, this one of my dear old Dad as a baby.
Thanks for looking,

Show Us Your Stuff - October

This month we have a very special sponsor at SHOW US YOUR STUFF... none other than artist Leanne Jago. You can win a set of prints from Leanne this month! Cool!

So this month, we were asked to create a project inspired by Leanne's artwork....

I've never painted an animal before, but decided I could give it a go, and I am pretty happy with the outcome. Never created anything like this before and it feels good!

I drew the outline of the butterfly, and then painted using my old set of watercolour paints. I may have nearly fainted from trying to blow the paint around so hard - LOL! :) :)

Finished with a few small embellishments:
* Map Marker from Charms Creations
*Blue glitter chevrons from Burdys Embellies
* and Sequin butterfly, wooden butterfly and resin and enamel dots from D-lish Scraps
Thanks for looking,


White with One - October

Here is this month's colour at http://whitewith1.blogspot.com.au/

And here is my page....

I really focused on a few perfect pieces of paper from my stash for this challenge.
Although I tried something different with my white background. I stuck a piece of spotty tulle fabric to the white cardstock. It may be hard to see from the photos, but it created a lovely soft layer of texture to my page.

I finished with flowers, flairs and resin dots from my D-lish Scraps stash.

Hope you join in this month.

Scrap the Girls - October

A pretty, but tricky mood board this month at Scrap the Girls. Purple always gets me!

This month's sponsor is COLOUR BLAST
I used a number of Colour Blast products to create this background:

I mixed Colour Mica Powder (in Wisteria) with gesso to create the soft lilac background. I used an old roller stamp (plus design from Glitz) to roll some of the colour around the page!
I used the same purple mix to paint the scroll chipboard.
I sprayed Colour Spray (in Rainforest) for the mint green in the background. I also used this Colour Spray to colour some white flowers.
Finally I used some Colour Paste (in Steel), which I roughly swiped across the background in patches.
I swiped Colour Shimmer Spray (in Steel) around the edges of the page.
And I sprayed ribbon and lettering ("sweet") with Colour Spray (in Grape).

I used:
Flair, paper flowers, doiley and punchinella from D-lish Scraps.
Felt bow from Rainbow Splendour.

Thanks for looking!
