Scrap The Girls July 17 Mood Board Challenge

 July Mood Board Challenge





It is a great Mood Board and after some thought  I found inspiration in the black and white lines, the

 feathers, the key and the medallion like mosaics square.



I did a bit more journaling than I usually do on this page and it will be good to have a record of the

significance of this photo in years to come.

Looking forward to seeing how others create around this mood board!!

Scrap The Boys June Challenge


Scrap The Boys

This month it was a color challenge



My photo comes from a present  that came home from kindy mounted on a painted tray.

I had it hanging in the dining room for many many years until recently when it got knocked down.

I realised the photo was quite dusty and knocked about . I managed to salvage it and found the above

colors perfect for scrapping it!!

I just love this photo and the look in Mark's eyes!

I thought my Dylusions Paints were a perfect match-
                                                                                  London Blue
                                                                                  Paintbox Red
                                                                                  Lemon Zest

I hadn't used them before this and I found they were great fun!!





The red V patch and the two wood veneer stars have come from Rainbow Splendour

and the title Shine is from Kit the Habit.

            The stencil is from The Crafters Workshop and the sequins are red, though that doesn't show

 so well in the photo!

             The stars are Bella Boulevard Puffy Star Stickers.

anna's Craft Cupboard June Challenge 2017

June 2017 sketch challenge




my interpretation


I used the Cocoa Vanilla Wild at Heart Collection to create this page.

My daughter was enjoying the thrill of holding a guinea pig- she ended up caring for weiros, and rats

before she was successful in her campaign to have a dog!!




I love Coca Vanilla Collections as I know it all goes together well!!

Winner Winner Chicken Dinner!!

 I enjoyed  the Birthday Cybercrop for Anna's Craft Cupboard earlier this year .

I was thrilled to win the Moodboard Challenge!



Maja Designs Vintage Baby Papers were ideal for this little girl!! 

The papers are so gorgeous they don't need much embellishment!

I layered up the photo, fussy cut the balloons and added a few pearls.
( sounds quick but it took a while to get the layout right!)

Gorgeous result for a gorgeous girl( who still is at 19 years!!)

Anna's Craft Cupboard May entry 2017

Challenge- Black and White
https://www.annascraftcupboard.com.au/blog/


I was so happy when this was taken- I had waited 5 years for this little man!! ( who is 6ft + and 23yrs  now!)




I really enjoyed this blast from the past !

The chipboard is Dusty Attic which I painted with white Liquitex Acrylic Paint.

I then coated it with Dusty Attic Crackle Varnish

The title is UM Wow chipboard and treated the same way.
.
I used a Donna Downey Stencil with Finnabair Crackle paste for the background.

Loved how it turned out!

Scrap the Girls May Challenge



Mother's Day this month so the challenge is about mothers with a gorgeous mood board to use for
inspiration



http://scrap-the-girls.blogspot.com.au/


Rule #1.  The lady featured must be a Mother of some sort. It can be your mum, step-mum, adoptive mum, your husbands mum, your friend, your cousins friends sister or even you.  You can be an actual mum to a human child, a mum to a fur baby, a reptile baby or any other baby you have.  You can interpret the criteria how you like.  Remember the definition of a mother as described in the Urban Dictionary (this was my favourite definition): "The woman who loves you unconditionally from birth, the one who puts her kids before herself and the one who you can always count on above everyone else. Just telling her your problems makes you feel better because mom's always know how to make it all go away. Even if you fight, know that she's just looking out for your best interests."

Rule #2: No boys in the photos.

I was inspired by the stick figures which made me think mixed media, the mother daughter

 moments in the mood board along with the blue square.



 First I  applied  texture paste through a scrap matts stencil onto a 12"x 12"  watercolor 

base page.

Then when it was dry I had a lovely time playing with  Tinby Designs Color Crush  powders and 

water.

The flowers were 49&Market and the thank you was from a Kaisercraft die.





the thank you is an expression of gratitude as I had had quite a bit of difficulty and heart ache 

before my daughter was born

Would love to see how you interpret the mood  board!

(sympathies to those whose mother may not be with them now, it must be so hard)
