Kaisercraft April challenge

I loved the April release of Indigo Blue by Kaisercraft and when I saw the mood board for this month's Kaisercraft blog challenge I just had to have a go.

Here is my take:


I watered down some Kaisercraft Country Blue Light paint and applied to my background using a plastic bag. I then used a Kaisercraft stencil and some blue texture paste and stamped with a Kaisercraft background stamp.

I the end I used a mixture of Indigo Blue diecuts and stickers with some paper from the Off the Wall release. I also used some Kaisercraft flowers.

Here are a few close ups:






And here is the mood board which I based my layout on.




Thanks for looking

Kraft+ April Challenge

It's been a long time between posts but I have finally managed to do a blog challange post - probably my first for six months. I have been doing DT work for A2Z Scraplets but don't seem to have had the time to do other scrapbooking.

This months challenge at Kraft+  was to use paint chips/swatches. I knew I wanted to use blues so raided the local hardware store for some chips. I was lucky as they had 3 types - round circles, strips of colours and just single chips.

Here's my entry. I used the circle chips, which I die cut into doilies in various places. I used the strips of colours down the side of my photo and at the side of the layout (though it is mostly covered up) and I used the big single chips at the top and bottom of my photo.



You can see one of my circle chips which I die cut into a doily peaking out here.

February challenge at A2Z Scraplets Papercraft challenges

Thought I'd pop in and share this months challenge along with my take on it. This month the challenge is to scrap your world.  My family is my world but I decided to take a slightly tongue in cheek approach to the challenge and scrap some silly photos and a lot of the time that is all I get when trying to take photos of them!


And here's a close up of my A2Z Scraplets chipboard piece which I decided to leave naked.




Here's a reminder of the challenge:
Create a project featuring your world. There is no product criteria for your project, you can use chipboard if you have it (can be any brand). Please include any technique used for decorating your chipboard if you have used it. A2Z Scraplets chipboard available at http://www.a2zscraplets.com.au/ 
Entrants in the Challenge are asked to be a "liker" of our facebook homepage https://www.facebook.com/a2zscraplets this is not compulsory.
All entries must be created exclusively for the A2Z Challenge only and not combined with any other challenges
All entries are to be made brand new and the Challenge runs for the full month of February and is open to experienced as well as novice papercrafters. Tell us if this is your first ever challenge or your first A2Z Scraplets Challenge. A lovely packet of A2Z Scraplets Chipboard will be sent to the winner (as deemed by the A2Z Scraplets DT) and also something will be sent to any novice or first timer.
You can upload your entry to Facebook here:






Why don't you give it a go.

A2Z Scraplets Papercraft Challenge

Hi,

I've been a bit quiet again. Still working - well at least for the next couple of weeks. Not sure what's happening after that. I think there may be more work on the horizon. I hope so as we are saving up to go to Europe next year.

Anyway a new challenge is up on the A2Z Scraplets Papercraft Challenge Facebook page and it is a sketch challenge for this month.

Here is my take:


And a couple of close ups




And here is the sketch I based it on:


Why don't you give it a go! You would win a goodie bag of A2Z Scraplets products.

Cheers
