Scrap the Girls | January 2018 Moodboard

January’s moodboard is not really a girly one but that’s the challenge.January 2018.jpg

I took inspiration from the blue colour and the guitar.

This is my take on the challenge:

 

Here are some close ups.  I really love the simplicity and the details of this layout.

Scrap the Girls – HELLO MR GREY

This months challenge at Scrap the Girls is a bit of a different one.  It’s all about Grey

Scrap the Girls July

This is my favourite moodboard of the last six months.

When I put this moodboard together I had an idea for a layout but I had no idea what photo I could use or how I could use it.  Then this layout came about.  I absolutely love it so much.

Today I am sharing my take on the Scrap the Girls Sketch Challenge this month.

Sketch 3.jpg

I am not one to use a lot of flowers so I changed it up a bit and moved the sketch down a little to create my layout.

I used watercolours and Colour Blast Shimmer dusts as my base to this layout and then I added Colour Blast Colour Paste and Flutterby Designs Flutter Paint over the top.  I have had a hard time with photographing my layouts lately so that is why this layout doesn’t look as bright as I would like.  I tried two separate times to take some decent photos but the summer sun and stained glass windows have not helped my cause.  I have lights too believe it or not.  Time to add some new ones I think.

Anyways here are some progress shots.

First – watercolour.

Then some Colour Blast Colour Paste applied with a palette knife.

Then a squeeze of Flutterby Colour Paint over the top.

Here are a few close ups of the finished product.  The hardest part of this layout was waiting for the Flutterby Paint to dry.  I didn’t want it to bubble so you have to let it dry naturally or with very little heat.

I originally created this layout as an alternative to a DT layout I was working on.  I actually created three to the criteria and had a friend pick the best one.

This one I loved but it came off second best.

Mother | Scrap the Girls

Today I am sharing a layout that I created for this months Scrap the Girls Moodboard.   This year, I have taken creative control of the moodboards now that I am understand running the challenge blog a lot better and am not so overwhelmed with the process.  I put this moodboard together knowing that May is mothers day month.  I was initially inspired by the wire.  Here is the moodboard:

Mothers day Moodboard May 2017.jpg

So I decided to play with some wire to make a mother and child.  Then I used it on a mixed media background with a photo of my first born daughter and I when she was just six days old.

Here is my take on the challenge:

There is a process video too you can watch it below.  Wire is fun to work with, a technique I will definitely be trying again.

Kraft + December Challenge

This layout was in hiding as it was accepted for print by the change over of publishers was a big mess.  I have been given the all clear to share.  I created this layout over a year ago.

This challenge was an easy one – Kraft + Travel + Map. We spent two years living abroad and travelling before we got married so I have plenty of travel photos to choose from. This is a selfie taken at the Colosseum in Rome.

 All my maps are glued into a smash book so I emailed my husband at work and asked him to print off one for me. Both in colour and black and white. This is the only one he came home with so, I had to work with it. I’ve used it like a matte behind my photo but I also matted it to make it a bit of a focus.

How awesome is the leather strap tape that I picked up the other day. I should have got more.  And the Flutterbys Flair is just perfect.
