Sassy Scrapper July mood board

Hi, I've managed to find time this month to join in with the mood board challenge over at Sassy Scrapper. I loved the mix of colour of mint, black and gold. As I didn't really have any people photos which would go with this colour mix I decided to scrap about my camera, which I got for my last birthday.

I created a background using watercolours and stamped and embossed the circles in gold. I obviously took inspiration from the colours. I added some gold glittered washi tape inspired by the glittery eyelashes and created my own brush script card inspired by the brush script quote.

Here is the mood board on which my layout is based.

Blue Fern Studio July Sketch challenge

Hi, I have a layout to share with you that I created for the Blue Fern Studios July sketch challenge. 
I am a keen gardener and have lots of photos of flowers from my garden so decided to create a layout about one of them. To create my background I have used a piece of Blue Fern Studio Ombre Dreams pattern paper which has a delicate pattern printed on it. I was impressed with how thick the paper is. To this I added some texture paste using a Crafters Workshop stencil and also stamped with a text stamp. I added a photo matted on another piece of Ombre Dreams paper and placed some Blue Fern Studio chipboard onto it. This piece of chipboard and all other pieces were first painted with gesso and then I used a mix of gelatoes and watercolour paint to create a soft colour.
Then it was time to create my clusters. Here are some close ups. The chipboard leaves are also Blue Fern Studios.
I have used a FWAB Chloe Pearl Flourish in Pearl which I cut up. Using one part on the bottom cluster and one part on the top cluster. I also used a piece of Blue Fern Studios for the title.IMG_5120
Both clusters include a mix of flowers but each one has a FWAB flower. For the top cluster I used a FWAB Elise flower in burnt orange.IMG_5119
And in the bottom cluster I have used a FWAB Maddison flower in pink.
I also used some FWAB individual adhesive pearls in pearl. You can see one used as a centre of the small pink flower in the photo above. I also scattered a few around the page.
Here is the sketch on which my layout is based.
Thanks for looking.

FWAB July Challenge

Good morning, I thought it was about time I shared with you FWAB's July challenge. This month Amy Prior has set a recipe challenge which is to include:
1 piece of FWAB
2 other embellishments
3 flowers
4 patterned papers
5 pieces of confetti or pearls
It was my turn to provide a sample so here is my take on the challenge

Another Mickey Mouse layout. My FWAB piece was a FWAB Elise black flourish which I cut into 2. I also used a FWAB black Maddison flower as one of my 3 flowers. The other 2 were handmade felt flowers.

I used 5 FWAB individual adhesive red pearls. 

My 2 embellishments were a red felt arrow from {scrAp this!} 

And a Rainbow Splendour felt star stick

For my patterned paper I used some paper from the Queen and Co Magic range.

Don't forget to enter your take on the challenge to the FWAB gallery by July 31st and you could be in the running to win a pack of FWAB goodies.

Good luck!

Berry71bleu July challenge canvas

Here is my entry for the Berry71bleu July challenge which was to include 3 different patterns on your project. Most of my scrapping is of the traditional variety so I thought I'd try something different and do a mixed media canvas and play around with a number of different mediums as well as some FWAB goodness.
To create the background I gessoed a canvas and then  painted stripes of Twinkling H20 paints and normal watercolours paints and blended them with water. I then used 3 different stencils (circles, triangles and ? not sure what to call the third shape (it is a sort of brackety shape) and 3 different mediums: – Viva Decor stone art texture paste,
Shimmerz Dazzelerz texture paste, which I then covered in gesso to tone it down,
 and gel medium
 I then set about creating a sea like scene. I painted some chipboard grasses and adhered them to the canvas. Then I overlaid them with FWAB Chloe Flourishes in blue and purple
 I added some chipboard seahorses coated in Viva Decor Inka Gold Cobalt and added some FWAB individual adhesive pearls in purple along its tail.
 Next I added my own version of the rainbow fish created with sequins.
Finally, I added a quote and my canvas was finished.

Stuck?!Sketches July 1 challenge

Hi, Haven't had much time to do much scrapping with the school holidays on for the last 3 weeks and other things.
However, I have found time to do the first sketch for the month up at Stuck?!Sketches

I loved the triangle theme and just altered it a bit. I pulled out some of my Doodlebug Take Notes for the patterned paper and used some Motex tape for the sentiments.
Here is the sketch on which it is based.

And also this is for the Frosted Designs July challenge which is to use the same sketch and to use a diecut or punch. I used a punch on the horizontal pink strip.
