Off the Rails September Challenge

Hello Friends

Septembers challenge at Off the Rails Scrapbooking Facebook Group is been all about colour!

Follow the link to join in - you wont be disappointed.

No photo description available.
Now show us your COLOUR, we want vibrate, sassy, loud, BRIGHT, in your face colour..

I think I followed the brief :)

I have a tutorial on how created this layout

I used a sheet of Kaisercraft Premium White cardstock as the base and a Michelle Grant for Colour Blast Australia A4 stencil with white texture paste.  I placed this across the page about 1/3 down.

I then delved into my stash of powders and chose the brightest colours I could to colour the dotted circles and create drips

I mixed the powders with water and painted, and dripped each circle, and then dried it before moving onto the next one

Whilst waiting for the last circle to dry, I double matted my black and white photo with 2 sheets of the Natalie May designed paper from Paper Roses, Arty Love Collection.  These A5 sized sheets of 210gsm card have a satin finish and are totally gorgeous. I then mounted the stack onto foam to take it off the background.
Before I adhered the photo, I took an array of ink sprays to match the background colours and generously splattered all over the background

When I had finished and all was dry, I adhered my photo and took a mix of Simple Stories alphas and Dear Lizzy thickers to create my title - nothing else required.

I really love how this turned out, and hope you do to!

Thanks for stopping by today - would love to see what you create in the next few days to be eligible to win our great prize.

See you soon

Sketches in Thyme Week 4 reveal

Hello Friends

It is reveal day at Sketches in Thyme for our 4th sketch of the month.  Did you realise we release a new sketch each week of every month for 4 weeks?  There is always a great prize up for grabs each month.
No photo description available.

I switched out the hexagons for stars to suit the theme of my layout better :)

So far 2019 has been an awesome year for my youngest son, Mitch, on the basketball court - still one roster to go for him to!

Loved creating this layout.

I cant wait to see what you all come up with.

See you soon

Scrap Our Stash Sketch Challenge

Hello Friends

It is mid month challenge at Scrap Our Stash
No photo description available..

I chose the right side of the sketch and rotated it 90 degrees clockwise to fit my portrait orientation pics.

I used the Simple Stories Heart collection - so totally apt for my tribute layout to my dad who I lost 40 years ago.

I hope you get the chance to join our challenge and I look forward to seeing which side you choose to scrap 

Till next time

There is another awesome Brenshevia sketch at Lets Get Sketchy this month

And my layout is very simple.

Looking forward to your creation with this sketch
