Kraft Plus - June

Great challenge again at Kraft Plus this June. Never the same old, same old... always a challenge - I love it!

Current Challenge

Here is my page and some close ups.

I used my palette knife to swipe texture paste onto the background, and stuck in some old puzzle pieces (sorry girls, that Dora the Explorer puzzle will never be quite the same!). I used some mists and watercolours to create the grey and orange colours on the background. I also did some random orange stamping!
I printed journaling on vellum, and when the first lot I printed ended up being to big for the page, I flipped it upside down and trimmed it to fit as an extra layer behind the photo.

I found an old chipboard puzzle piece, and I covered with patterned paper!

My embellishments include:
Charms Creations heart and chevron in orange/cream
From D-lish scraps: paper bag, flair & resin flowers
Also added some wood veneer and twine.

Thanks for looking,

Off the Rails - JUNE challenge

I had a go at the challenge for OFF THE RAILS this month!

It is a monochromatic challenge.
Junes mood board

And because I had just been to the Brisbane Papercraft/Scrapbooking Show and bought by official first pot of Colour Blast texture paste in Just Blue, that's where I started!

Here is my page and some close ups:

To create this background:

I used Colour Blast Just Blue Texture Paste through my Dusty Attic triangles stencil.
I then used my pale blue watercolours to wash across the background.
Scrappy-Arty genius Lisa Oxley, once showed me how to use house paint to dribble on the background. I had an old sample pot of white paint and I managed to dribble some of this onto the page from the end of a on old paint brush.

Some great Aussie handmade stuff to embellish:
Burdys embellies - Blue cogs
Rainbow Splendour - Wood Veneer pluses
Corbett Creations - Wood veneer little chick
Charms Creations - DIY plus, which I was able to colour with the Colour Blast paste mixed with some water. (Love the coloured effect it produced!)

Thanks for looking!

D-lish Scraps - Design team work

Hi all,

I have been lucky enough to be on the Design team for D-lish Scraps since October last year. Each month I create 3 or 4 layouts. In an effort to keep my blog up-to-date, here is a post sharing some of my layouts from this year. Because D-lish is a perfect embellishment shop, I was try to make the pages about the embellishments.

So many awesome projects this year! So grateful to be on this team, getting to work with pretty stuff all the time!
