Mini canvas for Scrappingclearly

Hi all I'm here to share my latest Design Team post for Scrappingclearly! I decided to stay with my Mixed Media urges this time and create a mini canvas using the cool Vicki Boutin Art Crayons, and some stencils from TCW and Dina Wakley. There are a mountain of other products used, which you can find out more about on the Scrappinclearly blog in my detailed post! The canvas is from Kaszazz, it's 5 x 7" in size! Love working on them! The stamps are from the Prima Finnabair range!

Mixed with water, you can use the crayons as watercolours for your background.

Add some stamping for your first layer.

 Then add some stencilling and some fab Colourblast paste in Bling!

Look at the shine from the Colourpaste!

Some close ups of the embellishment cluster!

Thanks so much for looking!!!!

Kraft Plus, Plus one colour challenge

Hi all, can you believe it's the first of June? Half way through the year..too scary! Today I am up on the Kraft Plus blog with my Design Team sample of our June challenge. It's Kraft, Plus one colour. check out the inspiring challenge board:

Now I was down to the wire with timing this month...again, just have had a very busy time lately!!! My friend and I hosted our very own, very first scrapbooking retreat here in Darwin over the weekend, it went awesome by the way, but wow, alot of work involved and it's taking me awhile to not feel tired!!!
So this layout was pulled together very quickly, just by opening a few of my embellishment drawers, paper scrap drawer and I have a little folder with odd journal spots, which also came in handy.

The first thing I did was stencil the words on my background, using the Kaszazz, Destiny stencil and some Distress Oxide inks. So smooth on the Kraft background!!! Then I added some texture paste through a Kaszazz stencil. For some colour drops, I added some Gelatos with water and let it run, but then covered most of it up with the photo. One of my favourite things about this layout, is that I used up a few little things I have had sitting in my stash forever!! Can you see part of the little, blue, cocktail umbrella sticking out under the word Magic, above!!!??? I also used a piece of it under the bottom of the pic.

The butterflies are from an ephemera pack from Grace Taylor, (Grant Archival), I've had them for sooo long!!! I added some art marker to change the colour in the middle from yellow to blue! There's some sequins, some washi tape from D-Lish scraps, and some flicks of the stem of the Dylusions bottle.

There's a little banner from a Kaisercraft collectables pack and a doily and a little journal spot from Autumn Leaves, which I had stamped and put in my little folder for a rainy day. It's actually kind of refreshing and quick working with just one colour. You are able to add black/white and neutrals to your project to help it come together. I hope you can find time to visit the k+ blog and check out the challenge samples from the other DT members.

Scrappingclearly May moodboard

Hi everyone, today I'm sharing my Design Team post over at Scrappingclearly, with some cards for the May moodboard. I used the Atlas Collection papers from Pink Paislee, which I really love!!! Here is the moodboard!

I love the Autumn colours this month, and these papers just worked perfectly!!!

The papers have a cool shipping tag design, so I cut some pieces out and made my own tags, with the Stampin Up tag punch, some eyelets, which I've had in my stash for years!!! (Win!) Then I used some twine which was a FREEBIE with the Scrapbooking Memories mag, a few years back! All cardstock is from Kaszazz, and the washi tape is from Teresa Collins.

For my '50' card, (all my friends are turning 50 this year!!) I used the Atlas papers as a background, and then stamped a Kaszazz water skiier image, and white embossed on black card. Then broke out the Distress Oxide inks, which I am playing with a bit lately!! I was aiming for the impression of water, waves or droplets, and I think it worked reasonable well! I flicked some Dylusions spray and mica sprays on top and it looks very shiny in the light!

The alphas are from Amy Tangerine!
Hope you can find time to visit over at SC and play along with the challenges this month. TFL!!!

Scrappingclearly Design Team post- Art Journal Page

So, I was in an art journal mood for my DT share this week over at Scrappingclearly. I have been so busy, trying to find a routine with my New job and working different days, the mojo went missing for a bit. Couldn't find it to scrap a layout, so went all messy and a bit random with an Art Journal page instead. If you click on the link to Scrappingclearly, you can read all about my process and the products I used!

Here are a few close ups.

Easter Cards for Scrappingclearly!!

Hi and Happy Easter to you all! I am having a quiet time home with the kids! Hubby has gone camping, and we are just relaxing here together after a very long couple of weeks. I started a new job and have been working 2 jobs, up until my notice finished with my previous employer and I was totally exhausted!!! Some crafting time was much needed! So today I'm up on the Scrappingclearly blog with a Design Team post of some Easter Cards, made using some Fancy Pants- Golden Days papers and embellishments, and some cool Vicki Boutin products!!

I played along with the moodboard this month, which was a mix of Autumn tones!!

 No automatic alt text available.

I used the Art Crayons to colour my bird stamps, and they are great when mixed with water on a craft sheet. I flicked some paint drops onto one of my cards with a paint brush. I also used the Acrylic Paints to add some drops to my cards, the paints by Vicki Boutin are quite thick, love them!

I made a small tag, with some left overs and found a cute little bunny in the Golden Days ephemera pack.

Hope you can check out the moodboard over at Scrappingclearly this month and play along, there's also a sketch challenge to inspire you and you could win a voucher to the store!!!
Enjoy your Easter!!!

Scrappingclearly March moodboard!!

Umm, yes, so I am a bit back to front with my posts this month, but I forgot to share my Design Team layout for the March moodboard over at Scrappingclearly. I think this is one of my favourite mixed media layouts, it was a great moodboard!!

I got to play with some gorgeous art crayons from Vicki Boutin, and a Heidi Swapp art screen with some Art Screen ink. This was the first layer of my page. I sprayed some Dylusions ink over the top and then used a circle stencil from Kaszazz and coloured with the crayons and then added some water to them to blend them!! They are lovely and creamy!

My paper range was Chickaniddy, 365, I still have some of this left from my Scrappingclearly kit and I love it!!!

Thanks for looking!~!!

Kraft Plus April challenge

Hi all!!! Another new month is upon us, and another great challenge from Kraft Plus this month!! Seriously, Sandra and Amanda are rocking these challenges and graphics for the modboards, I hope you can play along!!! So this month, it was your challenge to use paint chips on a layout!! I have been collectiong these babies for awhile now and have bags of them!!! Here's my layout for the Design Team sample!!

I had so many ideas in my head and I knew it would involve using my Kaszazz punches for some type of shapes. Then I came up with the idea of a banner, and incorporated my cute, banner stamps from Kaszazz.

I used some Kaisercraft papers, from the 6.5", Happy Snaps pad, some ephemera from the same range and some journal cards from the Say Cheese pack.

You can see I've punched and cut half circles for my banner and along the bottom of my photo!

The pretty enamel dots are from D-Lish Scraps !! From my remaining paint chips, I cut some little banners to help embellish!!!

Hope you've been inspired to have a go at our challenge this month!!!
