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 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.

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.

Here are a few close ups too:

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.

Denim Revolution – Kraft+

As soon as I saw this challenge for Kraft+ I knew I had to play along.  It seems there are a few people out there that had the same idea though and used photos from last years Scrap and Chat Retreat.  I can’t wait for this years.  Anyways, here is my take on the Denim Revolution.

IMG_8516.JPG

The photo is a little bit cheeky – An Angry Cock beer.  So I decided to play on this and use the top of a tiny pair of denim shorts with the zip coming down.  For my background, I used some printed Kraft paper from a typo bag.  The fact that it has all old ads printed on it and there is one at the top about disguises made it perfect for this page.

Here are a few close ups.
