A few more layouts

Yay, my cycling layout in the previous post won at the Scrapboutique CC.

Here are a few layouts I have done over the past week or so. First up is one for the ARTastic blog challenge. Inspiration had to be drawn from the painting "The perfumed garden" by John Coburn. Extra criteria were to include a tree, falling leaves and 2 different coloured birds. I drew the tree myself.

This second layout is for Sue's challenge at Top 50 Scrapbooking. The criteria was to include green, have at least 2 bows, use the word 'happy' in the title or journalling and include a handmade transparency.

The final layout this time is for the newly revived 123 challenge. The criteria this month was to use the word "new" in the title, have predominantly white and have a paint smeared background.

Scrapboutique CC

Three very different layouts for the challenges I did at Scarpboutique over the weekend. The first was for Linda's 'Home' challenge. The criteria were wer include a photo of a home, word home in title, at least 40 words of journalling, at least 5 buttons and some ribbon/lace/trim. I wanted to do a layout about the house I was born in and grew up as it is in the process of being sold at the moment. Had real trouble picking a design and colours to work but eventually came up with this, using some Crate Paper Brook pp and some old MME pp.

The second challenge was based on a sketch and had to be about an indoor or outdoor activity and have at least 2 photos. I used some old Rosa Moka pp and it gave me a chance to play with my new Tim Holtz cog die cut an Tim Holtz masks.

The third layout is for Em's Roast (similar to a blind scrap). This is my first 8.5 x 11 inch layout.

Scrap the Girls

After winning one of the prizes last month for Scrap the Girls, I decided to have another go. This months challenge is to scrap a birthday and include at least 3 different alphas in the title. These are pics of DD's 6th birthday. Didn't quite end up how I had originally planned but I'm happy with it in the end.

Another Ideal Papercraft CC entry

This layout is for Ngaire's inspirational challenge at the Ideal Papercraft CC. I have used a mix of Cherry Limeade and Tiger Lily glimmermists for the misting. I was aiming to use up more of my Crate Paper Pink Plum pp but only used a few odd bits.

Delovely and some more

As soon as I saw this new release from Cosmo Cricket I knew I had to have some and thought it would be perfect for this photo I'd had printed off for a while. This layout is for the June sketch challenge at Anna's Craft Cupboard.

This second layout is for the Becci's sketch challenge over at Scrapbooking Top 50. I love multi photo sketches. I used a mix of things on here - Lily Bee and BG pp, Doodlebug stickers, cutouts and alphas.

The final layout for today is for the Winter CC over at Ideal Papercraft. Vita's challenge was to use a given photo as inspiration and to include at least 8 eyelets or brads and paper tearing.
This is DD's rabbit Midget, again, hogging the heater in our rumpus room. I have used LYB Generation Z pp for the base and some scraps of BG for the plain black. It was quite difficult to find 8 brads in my stash that matched but eventually found some green crystal ones.
