Scrap The Boys July challenge - DT share

Its a sketch challenge this month at Scrap The Boys
Here is my DT page-
 I've used papers and ephemera from Cocoa Vanilla Studio.
The chipboard digger is from Words Or Whatever, and I've 
painted it with acrylic paint.

I've hand-written my journalling, documenting a 
small memory of the quirks of a 3 year old!

Scrap The Girls July Challenge

I absolutely love the deep, brooding mood board for this 
month's Scrap The Girls challenge

Navy blue is one of my very favourite colours to scrap with, but having said that, my layout that was inspired by this mood board went off on a totally different direction than where I started!

I was drawn immediately to the black and white horizontal stripes, and I also took inspiration from the dark blues and Kraft colours in the top image, as well as the feathers.

So here' a look at my layout

I've used some Dusty Attic chipboard feathers which I coloured with Colour Blast Colour Spray and Dina Wakley paint. I've also added some white acetate feathers.

I've also used a flair and tabs from Flutterby Designs, a heart from Charm's Creations and some resin flowers.

Another inspiration for my page is the work of  Scrap The Girls DT member Tammy Klingner, I really admire the way she mixes patterns and colour.

SBT50 July challenge - DT share

This month's challenge at Scrapbooking Top 50 Australia is a mood board challenge-

And here is my DT layout-

I've used Studio Calico paper for my base, then just added some black gesso.

All of my embellishments are from Hip Kit Club. I made some clusters with the little flowers.

A simple layout but I really love how it came together.

Jot Magazine June Mood Board challenge

When I saw the class and glamour of the June mood board at Jot Magazine I immediately thought 'wedding'!

So here is my wedding layout inspired by the mood board.

I was inspired by the rosettes in the mood board to create  circles for my design. I also added some gold keys from the mood board. These are both very strong wedding motifs!

I've used mostly Kaisercraft collections. I have to admit I've been hoarding the marble paper from the 'Wildflower' collection.

I actually tried paper quilling for the very first time.
I found it to be very addictive!

"Shine - Be Happy Be Bright Be You"

For my layout today I was inspired by the 
sketch challenge at Scrap The Girls

and the colour challenge at Scrapbook Boutique
(I just love this dramatic palette!)

So here is my layout-

I started my layout by applying some  Colour Blast 
'Bling' Colour Paste through a stencil.

I have used the Kaisercraft 'Stay Golden' collection 
for the papers and ephemera.
I've also tucked in some chipboard from Fabrika Decoru.

I've also added some flowers, and sequins and stars of course!

More Than Words June Challenge

I absolutely had to have a go at this month's challenge

I've created a layout of my Dad. I think the steampunk elements and the title really showcase his personality.
I have added lots of interesting little bits and pieces, which remind me so much of all the interesting bits and pieces he has collected in his shed.
The gorgeous industrial background paper is from
Blue Fern Studio - Chesterville.
I've also used papers and ephemera from
Kaisercraft - Barber Shoppe.
I've 'rusted' up some of the cogs, and I really like
the mixture of wood and metals.
