MAY Scrap The Girls Challenge

ITS IN MY SOUL is this months challenge. It’s a bit of a Boho themed look this month so I went with some feathers and flowers.
I loved creating this layout. It was very satisfying to hand paint the flowers and feathers and then I used a black sharpie to add details. I cut the title using my Silhouette Cameo and some black card. The pink and gold circle behind my photo is vintage wallpaper compliments from my sister in Victoria, she always has the coolest stuff to share with me.
I also added some die cuts (Berry Stem Outline die) from Uniquely Creative.
I hope this inspires you to try the challenge at Scrap The Girls.

Using some older products

I love patterned paper, its my weakness and I hoard it. This layout features some of my very favourites. I keep all the little scraps of paper when I do a project and have 4 boxes of colour sorted scraps which I love digging through and finding gems.

There is very little on this layout besides scraps, a doily and a few foam glitter pieces from an old Thickers set….oh and enamel dots because I love those too.
I’ve used a black sharpie to draw around the edges of the papers and page.
Easy peasy!
Happy scrapbook day friends.

My challenge layout

Another challenge layout to share today. Inspiration from Paige Taylor Evans layout for this one.

I loved Paiges layout so much that I tried to stick to the same colour choice and she had a free cut file for the letters which I cut on my silhouette Cameo. A little smear of gesso on the base page and then the cut out title and some embellishments.

Hope you are keeping safe at home! Do some craft!

Yvettes Challenge layouts

I decided to have a challenge with a few of my scrapbooking friends while we struggle through COVID-19. We each take turns to choose a layout we like (from Pinterest usually) and we do our version of it. This is the first layout I did.
I spattered lots of watercolour paint on white card stock.
Ripped a few slices of patterned paper and embellished. I was pretty happy with my finished layout.
Hope you are staying at home safe.

Colour swatches layout share

I recently got a pack of the new UNIQOLOUR MARKERS from Uniquely Creative and made some colour swatches for them. They were so pretty I cut them up to use on this layout.
I did a pale pink wash on white card stock first using the pink marker scribbled on a palette with lots of water and a big brush. Then using the flowing dots stencil from Uniquely Creative and a sponge with a darker pink marker I made a few dots.
I placed a foam square under each swatch and placed them in rows.
I added some wooden elements that I had coloured with Oxide Ink on some of the swatches. Added a border to each with a black sharpie pen.
A few floral ephemera pieces from Bloom Street collection by Paige Taylor Evans to finish it off.

I recently hosted a class at our local scrapbook shop and this is the layout I actually demonstrated in class. It was hurriedly dabbed with paint and then stamped randomly to demonstrate the technique of using dylusion sprays as paint. I bought it home and put it aside.
I had a bunch of die cut white feathers which I painted with more dylusions ink. I put this layout together quickly with what I had on my desk, some Bloom Street embellishments from Pink Paislee.
Iam NOT a fan of purple, however it has been creeping into my scrapbooking lately and these vibrant colours are making me happy.
This is what I had to start with.
Painting the feathers with dylusions ink.
And a card with the scraps.

Uniquely Creative Tropical Dreams

March kit is gorgeous Tropical Dreams. The add on dies are bubbles texture die and tropical coral die. The creative cuts are a great mix of floral and nautical elements.
In the background I’ve used the net stencil with watercolour paint on a sponge, then the mark making stamp that come in the kit with and the bubbles texture die using white card stock.
Loved using the dies, especially the coral dies which I painted with watercolour for this layout.
A bit of guaze and some sequins and navy rhinestones which come in the kit too make this seascape.
