Hi Everyone

Popping in today to share the class I taught last weekend for All About Scrapbooks monthly crop day. The last crop day for the year. 

We had some fun creating backgrounds with Dylusions paints using a range of techniques - paintbrush strokes, plastic bag technique and stamping. 

Awesome


Papers and embellishments are by Cocoa Vanilla Studio You Rock and a 2Crafty chipboard frame.

This was lots of fun!

Fun in the Sun for Show us Your Stuff

Hi everyone

Decided to play along with the challenge over at Show us your Stuff this month after seeing the theme:


It reminded me of this awesome 2Crafty frame and I based my layout on the frame, easy to do when one of your kids loves Flamingos!

Fun in the Sun


I used some older Kaisercraft papers and embellishments I had that I'd been holding onto because of the flamingos. My background is with the new pinks Dylusions paints and I also used Dylusions paints to paint the frame. 




My three "f" things:

Frame
Flamingos 
Flowers and
Fun title 

and my hand made embellishment is the Rainbow Splendour bow.

On Top of the World

Hey everyone

I'm continuing to play with the Maggies Holmes Carousel collection from Crate Paper. 

On Top of the World


I adored this park paper with it's carousels and theme park look. It's a bit busy, so I have added lots of layers around my photo in less busy patterns to compensate and my title is cut from one of the patterned papers and on white so you can see it clearly!

Frenchie!

Hi Everyone

This week I decided to play along with the Think Pink! challenge over at Scrap the Girls. As soon as I saw the mood board I knew which photos to scrap!

Frenchie


This is me at my nephews 21st this year, the theme was Musicals/Disney. I am not a pink wearing person but it was a nice change and I loved the wig!

I created my background with the new Dylusions paints, Peony Blush and Rose Quartz. I am in love with these colours!! I used the darker pink for the masking and some splatters. 



I've inked some 2Crafty Chipboard stars in black for some contrast . Next I've added some masking with a Flutterby designs mask, some washi and stamping, before finishing off with some pink and black embellishments. 

The mood board image:
