Scrapbook Boutique DT page using Kaisercraft Botanica pt 2

Back with my second page using Kaisercraft Botanica for my DT work at Scrapbook Boutique.

This time I decided to use just the plain papers from the collection.

And here are a couple of close ups:

Scrapbook Boutique DT page with Botanica Part 1

Good afternoon, just sharing my first DT page using Kaisercraft Botanica at Scrapbook Boutique. Initially, I wasn't too keen on this collection but when I looked at it again I found it pretty easy to work with.

And a couple of close ups

Sassy Scrapper August Recipe Board Challenge

Managed to actually get some 'me' scrapping done today. This was for the Sassy Scrapper August recipe challenge.

August  Recipe Challenge

Here is my take:

This is a layout about my daughter having her photo taken at Movieworld with Bugs Bunny and Tweety Pie.
Recipe items: Thickers - I used some yellow glittery ones from my stash
Mists as watercolours: I used Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst Blue Hawaiian blue which I tipped into a paint palette and used a plastic bag to add to my page (something I often do with my watercolours).
Enamel dots: I used 9 on my page in groups of 3.

Here's a few close ups:

I also used some pieces of Doodlebug Hip Hop Birthday patterned paper and tickets. A Charms Creations mini heart and a lovely chipboard starry circular frame which I bought at Paperific yesterday from Scrapmatts.

Thanks for looking.

Kraft Plus August Challenge

The challenge this month at Kraft+ was to use kraft and zentangle or doodle. I have been taken in by the adult colouring craze and have a couple of books on the go so was keen to give this a go. I used a template that I found on the Ornation Creation Facebook page and filled it in with zentangle designs and coloured it in with coloured pencils. I also created a border for my page. Besides animals, fungi is one of my favourite things to photograph. I'm happy with the zentangle but not sure about the page overall. It wasn't what I had envisaged at the beginning of my page design.
Anyway, here it is:

And a close up of my zentangling and colouring.

I was inspired by all the sprinkles so created a sprinkly type of canvas!

I used an 8x10 inch canvas. I gessoed the background. Then I used 2 gelatoes - Pistachio and Butter Cream to create the background. I scribbled them on in layers and then blended with a little water and my finger.

I gessoed the chipboard and coloured with Pistachio gelato. Then added some Stickles to the dots on the end. Before sticking it down I stencilled some dandelion leaves onto the canvas using Peeled Paint Distress Ink. On 2 of the leaves I sprinkled sticky embossing powder and after heating added Distress Glitter.
I then stencilled some little dots on the sides and bottom of the canvas front using texture paste. Then I glued on the chipboard and added some Collectables from the Kaisercraft Botanicals range, along with a sentiment. I added some Frosted Lace Stickles to some of the pieces.
Finally, I glued some Prima Glass Beads around the chipboard using Glossy Accents.

Hope this inspires you to have a go at the challenge.
