Scrap The Boys Jan challenge - DT share

Today I am sharing my final project as part of the Scrap The Boys 
team. I have had such a great time on this team over the past 2 years.

This month's challenge is to use flowers on a boys layout 
- yes it can be done.

Here is my DT page-



I've used some Colour Blast Colour Shimmer Dust in 'Lush' to create my watercolour background. I've then added some stamping with a Dylusions leaf stamp.


I've added some flowers from D-lish Scraps, some Uniquely Creative feather dies, and some wood veneer pieces from Rainbow Splendour. 

I've used a Heidi Swapp wood veneer 'hello' as my title. 
I've kept all my wood veneer pieces raw 
to add to the 'outdoors' theme of my page.




I hope you can give this challenge a go!

Jot Magazine January mood board challenge

Its been very hot here over the past few days - 
the perfect weather to stay inside and scrap!

Today I am playing along with this month's 
mood board challenge at Jot Magazine.

Here's a look at the gorgeous mood board. 

Anything with a beach theme is right down my alley. 
So naturally I scrapped my favourite beach photo.


And here is my page-


I love the wood grain and the natural themes in the mood board, 
as well as that dreamy colour palette.  

I've used a piece of Kaisercraft 'Mint Wishes' wood grain paper for my base, and I have also added some Kaisercraft quote stickers.


I've used some Hip Kit Club alphas, Little Birdy flowers, 
D-lish Scraps resin flowers, Uniquely Creative feather dies, 
and some flair buttons 
from D-lish Scraps and Fabrika Decoru.

How could I resist??!!

Here's a look at the moodboard-


And here is my layout. 
I kept to a white, teal, silver and navy colour palette

I created a background using sprays and 
Colour Blast 'Steel' Colour Paste through a star stencil.



I stamped various star stamps then fussy cut them out 
to continue my star theme. 
I also added a Kaisercraft quote sticker.




I added some embellishments from Charm's Creations 
and a flair from Flutterby Designs.
I finished the page with a scattering of navy sequins.

Dusty Attic December Challenge

Now that Christmas is over for another year and 
I have a few days of holidays, I managed to get one more 
creative piece done before the end of the year.

Today I have created a piece inspired by the 
December challenge at Dusty Attic.


I have created a dream catcher, using an upcycled gift box.
I was inspired by the gorgeous pastel colours of the mood board, especially the mint, pink, yellow and silver. 

I started with a white box and I painted the front with black gesso (and some glitter) and painted the sides of the box with Kaisercraft 'Spearmint' acrylic paint.


 I've used a Dusty Attic String Frame chipboard piece for the frame of my dream catcher. I have coloured this with Colour Blast Colour Paste in 'Envy'.


I've used a Dusty Attic 'Blueprint - Imagine' chipboard piece for my title. I coloured it with Dylusions paint in Peony Blush and then added a layer of Glossy Accents to make it shine.
 

I can't get enough of these Uniquely Creative Feather dies - perfect for die-cutting my feathers from several different patterned papers.
To add layers to my feathers I used the negative piece from the Dusty Attic 'Boho Feathers' chipboard set as a stencil to paint in some feathers underneath. 



Lastly I added some flowers and some paint 'strings'.
 I also added lots of splatters using watered-down gesso, Colour Blast Colour Shimmer Cubes and Colour Shimmer Spray.



I just loved how it turned out.

Scrap The Boys Dec challenge - DT share

This month at Scrap The Boys the challenge is an inspiration image.
There is so much to take from this 
- the rainbow colours, the Christmas theme etc.




I was inspired by the rainbow colours and the triangle shape, 
and this is what I came up with




To make my background I cut out a heap of triangles from different coloured cardstock, drew a border on each then folded up the edges. I have to admit it took about 2 days to make all of these triangles, but I think the effect is worth it! I have used up the leftovers in my art journal.



I added some Kraft paper and coloured papers under my photos, and added a Charm's Creation embellie to continue the triangle theme.
I used some puffy stickers for my title.

Scrapbooking Top 50 Aus Dec challenge - DT share

Sadly, this is my last DT project for 
I've had a great time over the last 2 years on this fab team!


So let's take a look at the December challenge-


Isn't it gorgeous!!??

And here is my DT page-


I've used a Kinder Kreations word for my title, and heat embossed it with Colour Blast 'Tangareen Dream' Colour Embossing Powder.



I stamped some feathers and coloured them with acrylic paint and water colours. I cut these out and then heat embossed with the stamp again to create the white outline.
I also stamped and coloured some leaves directly onto the Kraft base to add some depth.
 

I finished with some splatters of course!
