mystical Scrapbooks Cybercrop Christmas In July 2017

thoroughly enjoyed doing Christmas pages with my photos of a winter visit to Canada!!

challenge 1  add christmas sparkle to your page


challenge 2   use traditional colours red white and green


challenge 3 use ribbon on your page


I love the last one!!  The red and white behind the photo is ribbon!

 The photo was taken in the old part of Quebec City and it was just like walking through what I 

imagine a fairyland would be like!!

We had an amazing time there- despite the cold!!

Thanks Mystical Scrapbooks I really enjoyed this cybercrop!

Scrap The Girls August 2017 Challenge

Scrap The Girls challenge blogspot


I have to admit I found this mood board quite challenging!

I was inspired by the square paint swatches and the charcoal made me think of mixed media







I actually had a lot of fun doing this!!

I started with Kaisercraft Basecoat 1V paper collection-Jeans

I applied golden Light Moulding Paste through a Finnabair stencil- Grungy Grid.

Then I painted it all with Finnabair Art Basics Clear Gesso.

When dry I sprayed it with Dylusions Ink Spray Slate Grey and Kaisercraft Kaiser mist Winter Grey.

When I added Lindy's Stamp Gang Flat Fabio spray Blazing Black, it turned it all a deep steel bluey grey !

The leaves and roses behind the photo are made from Anna Griffin Couture Creations Embossing

 Paste- White Finish, mixed with Dylusions Ink Slate Grey and placed in a Silicone mould from 

zyneria.com (lace pattern and leaves).

The title and the small hearts are from Imaginarium Designs

The dangly heart below the photo is from WOW- words or Whatever, and the photo frame is from 

ScrapMatts.

 I dabbed them all with black gesso.

Then I added a few drops of Liquitex Professional Ink- Carbon Black about the page


I used  Finnabair Art Basics 3D Gloss Gel to attach Finnabair Art Ingredients- Glass

Beads( Zinc ) about the page.

I used a Fude Ball pen to add the journalling details.

Looking forward to seeing how others create from this moodboard!

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!!)
