Scrap Around The World 2015 October Moodboard Challenge Entry 2!!





I was also inspired by the vivid  colors of Heather's mood board ,and the exotic bird when I created this page.



I used Strathmore 12x 12 Watercolor paper.

I used my Lyra Aquacolor water soluble crayons to make the background, and also on the paper  to cut my dies from.
I then stamped with my Kaisercraft triangles clear stamp and also my Penny Black Slapstick /Cling hearts stamp, using Ranger  Archival inks.
The flowers and leaves are new from Kazzazz,(thanks Zena Melville) and I colored them  with the crayons, the leaves I colored but did not add water.
The Awesome  Arrow is from Scrapmatts and I left that raw.
The butterflies and dragon flies were Kazzazz dies, and I'm not sure which company made the bird of paradise die, or the ornate hearts.

This photo was taken on an AWESOME occasion!!
 My daughter and I had just completed a Short Course Triathlon ( 350 metres ocean swim, 7 k bike ride and 5k run/walk!)and we were pretty please with ourselves!!!

I was inspired by the bright colors,the pinks and blues, the feathers(seen on  my birds of paradise),  the word awesome, and the butterflies.
I used  12 x 12 Strathmore watercolor paper.

Scrap Around The World October Moodboard Challenge(2015)


This wonderfully colorful mood board was put together by the very talented Heather McMahon. I was inspired by the vividness of the colors and by the tree.
The theme of thankfulness also inspired me as I feel very blessed to have two beautiful children( now young persons!) in my life.






I can see now that the purple frame is not quite straight, but hey nothing on a tree is straight either!! LOL




I  flicked  Lindy's Stamp Gang Prima Donna Purple across the 12x12 bazzil page to start with, along with some Starburst Bling-y-Blonde.
I downloaded a shape of a tree and cut it out from Kraft-tex paper which I had already colored with Lindy's Stamp gang  starburst Sassy Sapphire. 
I went to sew it with my sewing machine and found the connection between the foot and the machine wasn't happening so had to sew it by hand!! 
The flowers are from Green Tara and Kaisercraft.
 I strung the crystal beads and tucked the strands behind the photos,(thanks to my sister for giving them to me after a beading passion!)
I also  used a Heidi Swapp tree Stencil and Faber-Kastell Whipped Spackle colored with the Sassy Sapphire spray.
I embossed the picture frame, Scrapmatts string circles, the Dusty Attic word" blessed"  and the flying bird with Lindy's Stamp gang Drop Dead Diva set -Purple, along with the wooden owl and butterfly.

The leaves on the stenciled tree on the left were colored with the purple spray and are from Kazzazz.
There are also a couple of hat pins I made with bright pretend pearls threaded onto them!!
The life button was given to me at one stage as was the butterfly die.
Hope you like it!

Scrapping Clearly October Moodboard



This mood board was really challenging for me because I rarely work with orange and red! I decided to have a go at an art journal spread. I have scrapped the covers of 2 art journals, but been quite reticent about actually tackling an art journal spread itself!! digital camera has just packed it in so I am relying on the photo taken on my i phone.

I can see areas for improvement but I am quite pleased with this result!!
wish me luck :)
