Scrap the Girls July

This is my favourite moodboard of the last six months.

moodboard-6

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.

Air Con Selfies.

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.

ARTastic Guest Designer

This month I was invited to be a guest designer for ARTastic Scrapbooking Challenge.  I agreed, then I got my challenge. UGH! Flowers.  I am not really a fan of flowers.

After a little bit of thinking and an impromptu photo session, I had an idea.  This is what I came up with.

I used some marigolds from our garden as stamps and printed with them.  The colours are really lovely and I am really happy with the finished layout.

Here are a few close ups.

 

ART Layout

This layout I designed for Rainbow Splendour for my share this month.  I was inspired by the triangles on the pin.

So, I used impasto paste through a Flutterby Designs stencil and then sprayed co-coordinating colours of Colour Blast Colour Spray over the top.  The trick is to make sure you dry each colour before adding the next.  This limits the amount of colour mixing that happens.  It still mixes just not as much.

For some reason this photo looks a little dull but in real life it is pretty cool.

Lets go Explore

I have some big things happening down the track so I am in the process of getting my layouts sorted and shared rather than having them sit waiting.  Waiting for what I have no idea maybe just time to sit down and blog them.  I am currently waiting for another process video to save, so why not blog and share these layouts especially as this one is a perfect Rainbow Splendour share.  Check out those wood veneer planes.  My favourite of all the RS woods.

This is a heavy mixed media background with lots of texture so I kept the veneer raw to make it pop.

Me & My Girl

This layout was another option to a design team layout I was working on.  I created three different layouts and had a friend choose the one she thought best fit the criteria.

This layout started off differently, turned into an art journal page then I started again and the finished product is exactly what I imagined.

Here is my layout:

Not a Dog + No Joke | Flutterby Designs DT Share.

Two more layouts using the “Fur-ever Friends” collection.  These two layout are actually about real life pets.  The first one is my mum’s dog Pinto, who to this very day, isn’t convinced my daughter is a person.  These photo were taken when she was almost a year old and she is four now.  Still, he always has to make sure both front and back, that she isn’t a dog.  Yet he leaves the other two kids alone.  Weird, Right?

To read about the products and the process head over and check out the Flutterby Designs Blog.

Now on to another dog layout.  This one is our beloved Bulldog, Bomber.  This photo was taken at one of my husbands regular house parties just before we met and I moved in 5 months later.  Bomber was the “Man” of the house.  He had his own couch, routine and an attitude.  I messed with that when I moved in and his attitude took a long time to adjust.

Here are a few close ups:

Thanks for stopping by today.
