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!

More Than Words November challenge

I absolutely LOVE this months challenge at More Than Words


Wood grain is definitely my most favourite design element to scrap with, I love the textures and the outdoorsy/ beachy feel to it. 
And I have 2 energetic boys that love exploring, so I have plenty of outdoors photos to scrap. 

So here is the page I made with this challenge in mind.


I have used a piece of Blue Fern Studio Wanderlust - 'Pacific Coast' paper. I liked the blue tint of the wood grain pattern, but it was quite 'beachy', being from a coastal collection, so I 'dirtied' it up a bit with some brown ink.  

I created a mixed media background using Colour Blast Colour Shimmer Dusts and watercolour Colour Shimmer Cubes. 
I recreated the rocks in the photo by using Colour Blast Colour Paste 
through a Fabrika Decoru stencil.

My chipboard title is from Dusty Attic, and I coloured that with inks. I also added some Dusty Attic chipboard viewfinders, but kept them raw to add to the outdoors theme.
I coloured an Imaginarium Designs fern chipboard piece with Colour Blast Colour Shimmer Dust in 'Lush' that I had used in the background. I added some muslin under my photo. I coloured this with Colour Blast 'Peacock' Colour  Shimmer Spray.


I added a flair from Flutterby Designs, flowers, string and some resin flowers from D-Lish Scraps.  I also added a Tim Holtz word sticker and the branding strip from the Blue Fern paper.

Its a sketch challenge this month at Scrapbooking Top 50 Australia.

I added some stamping using Viva Las Vegastamps 
and an Amy Tangerine roller stamp.



I've been hoarding the ephemera pack from the Cocoa Vanilla 'Totally Rad' collection, but decided this was the perfect page!
