March Scrap the Boys Reveal - Explore

Hi Everyone

A new month and a new challenge over at the Scrap the Boys challenge blog. This month it is all about DIRT!

Here is my take on the challenge:

Explore


I've used graphite texture paste over my background to create a "dirt" texture.  I have added a little colour with some patterned paper. Next I have continued the outdoors theme with some fussy cut some leaves from Echo Parks Jungle Safari range and added some gorgeous 2Crafty chipboard leaves. 

I've grunged up a raw 2Crafty chipboard frame with some random inking to frame my photo - a close up of my nephews dirt covered foot.

Antique Carousel - Guest Design Team over at ARTastic Challenge Blog

Hello everyone

I was very please to be asked to be a Guest Designer over at ARTastic Challenge Blog this month. Such a clever idea for a scrapping challenge - taking inspiration from Art.

This months inspirational art piece is Carousel Delight by Karen Pierce:



OOh I love carousels so I was so excited about this! The criteria is also to use butterflies on the layout. 

Here is my interpretation: Antique Carousel



This is the Antique Carousel in Florence Italy - we had a few rides on it over the course of our too short a visit to one of my most favourite cities! It is such a beautiful carousel. 

This challenge also gave me the opportunity to use this goreous Crate Paper Carousel horse that I had been hoarding for so long, as I just love it!  I have finished off the layout with some beautiful butterfly stickers which I have given some dimension with mounting tape to create an inflight motion to the page.

Love you to the Moon & Back for Scrapbooking Top 50

Hi Everyone

Lots of cool sketches around this month and I loved this sketch over at Scrapbooking Top 50  Australia this month. I have created this layout using a photo and papers that I have had in my stash for a while - obviously just waiting on the perfect sketch for inspiration!

Love you to the Moon and Back



Adore this photo of my two, taken 9 years ago - where did that time go? The gorgeous moon and the title are both 2Crafty Chipboard, part of the Love you to the Moon set.

My background is gelatos used as a watercolour and some subtle stars done with texture paste. The moon has been painted white then edged in the blue gelato. 



I've finished off with some gorgeous embellishments - some Cocoa Vanilla Studio and 2Crafty and these beautiful blue felt flowers that I have probably had in my stash for as long as the photo, I can't remember where I got them!


The layout is based on this sketch:
