More Than Words October Challenge

Today I am playing along with the October 
challenge at More Than Words

The word 'DELICATE' to me inspired me to scrap a photo of a High Tea that I recently attended for a dear friend's baby shower. 

All the pieces of food were so delicate and delicious, and the small details of fresh flowers made the individual platters even more special.

Here is my layout-

I used some papers and embellishments from Kaisercraft.

I've used some lace, seam binding and ribbon.
I layered some Aida cross stitch fabric under my photo.

I've also used fabric flowers and some felt 
from Charm's Creations.

I've added tissue paper and lace doilie to 
complement the 'delicate' theme. 
I've also added butterflies and flowers.

Uniquely Creative October Creative Kit - DT share

Something very exciting is happening at Uniquely Creative this month! The October Rose Avenue kit is absolutely gorgeous , but today I am sharing my projects I have created with the BONUS kit. 
Yes that's right, now can you choose an extra kit this month!

I absolutely adore the BONUS Mint Wishes kit.
I have made two layouts and two cards. 

Let's take a closer look....

My first layout features the amazing 'Frosted' paper - lucky there is an extra sheet of this in the kit, I couldn't decide which side to use - so I used both! 
How could you not fussy cut those florals!!

Some close ups-

I added the texture paste and glitter to the florals 
for some subtle sparkle.

My next layout is another Christmas themed layout, but there are many ways you can use this kit with non-Christmas layouts.

Some close ups-

I've also made two cards-

This card uses only ONE piece of patterned paper, as well as cardstock, Collectables and the snowflake lace.

Don't forget to subscribe so you never miss out on a kit - this one is sure to sell out quickly! 
While you are there check out the other amazing kit 
subscriptions available.

More Than Words September challenge

This month's challenge at More Than Words is using one of my
favourite techniques - GRUNGE!!
I love getting messy in my art - that's half the fun!

The other criteria for the challenge is to use the word 'FEARLESS'.

I love creating grungy masculine pages, but for this challenge I decided to do something a bit different and create some girl grunge!!

To create my grungy background I made some prints using my gel plate. I really love how the plate creates a distressed print. 
I then ripped up those pages, added some stamping, stencilling and splatters of gesso.

I matted my photo with some glitter foam and hessian
to add some different textures.

I used embellishments from D-lish Scraps,
Kit The Habit and The Resin Rainbow.
I also added some Tim Holtz quote stickers. 

I added some thread, a Charm's Creations arrow and a flair from Flutterby Designs for some more texture.

kraft music note paper for my background.

to highlight my rainbow painting.

Scrapbook Boutique August Moodboard challenge

Today I am playing along with the mood board 
challenge at Scrapbook Boutique-

This colour palette reminds me of a popular gender- neutral 
baby nursery colour palette, 
so I made a card for a friend who is expecting soon-

I coloured some white cardstock with Tim Holtz Hickory Smoke 
Distress Ink, then applied 'Sunshine' Colour Blast Colour Paste 
through a star stencil. 
Then once they were dry I outlined the stars 
with a fine-tip pen to highlight them.
I added some ink detail around the edges 
with Invilde Bolme white chalk ink.

I used a Kaisercraft stamp for my sentiment 
with the white chalk ink. 
I used a DIY star from Charm's Creations, and coloured it with 'Saffron' Colour Blast Colour Spray, Hickory Smoke Distress Ink, and added highlights with a fine-tip pen.
