GONE ARTY...

Hello!
Another layout to share, this time it is to showcase "Croco" paint sold at Fatcats...It is super easy to use, it is a one step crackle paint with a slight gloss to it. I chose one of my favourite colour combo white + kraft for a clean shabby layout. The background was created using Pink Paislee template with white picket fence distress stain, watercolour cardstock + brickwall embossing folder and some kaiser pearls! Here are the pictures:





And I used 2 Charms Creations Lollipops, I love them!!! That's it for today, I will be back soon....
Thank you for your visits, it always makes my day!!!

GRADE 1

Hello!

I am in a challenge mood! And here is my 2nd challenge for July, this is for Scrap the Boys this time! You have to scrap a school photo, now that is a big challenge, because I usually get the inspiration from the photo, but this year's photo is not inspiring to me, first it is a colour photo and it is not centered or artistic and I don't like it, so the challenge for me was to make the photo more appealing with loads of layers and techniques, I do like it better now it is surrounded by paper, stamps and circles lol!




I thought to try some new things...I get bored very easily! First the title is a stamped title with stickers, I circled the number 1 with distress journalling pen for something different. The journalling is different too, I decided to write it on banner like strips of paper written with my distress pen again and I gave it some dimension by gluing it over a mini pencil!
Material list:
Papers: MME, Kaisercraft, Prima, watecolour paper
Stamps: Stampin'Up, Stampendous
Stickers: Pink Paislee
Dies: Joy Craft, Die namics
Other: pencil, Charm Creations Lollipop, Red and Cream Thread

Thanks for coming! Will be back soon with some more work!

Show Us Your Stuff July 12 Group 2

Morning all,

I am here to share my inspiration for Show Us Your Stuff July 12 Group 2 Inspiration, it is a very beautiful photo prompt of a typewriter:


Here is my layout:




I mainly used the printed paper covering the typewriter as inspiration using a similar patterned paper by Kaisercraft and the colours black and white, my title was inspired by the round keys of the typewriter. There is a lot of tiny little details, there are a few home-made products
 (that is the whole point of this challenge site) and they are:
- Home made flowers using dies and ribbon
- Punched shapes and borders
- Home made tags
- Stamped images used as embellies

This month we have 3 fabulous sponsors:

Polka Dots Fever!

Hi!

I got this polka dot ribbon from Scrapping Outback a while back and I used it as my inspiration for my monochromatic layout, and when I saw the July challenge at White with One it all came together!
It is mainly pink and is loaded with SO products!


The chipboard banner was firstly coated with Gesso, I then covered it with tissue tape and 2 coats of white ink, and a few punched circles as polka dots. The title was painted white with a coat of white distress stain and distress stickles. I also made a little flag using gorgeous pink wire. The background was created with a Crafter's Workshop template and pink ink. I used a lot of various products, you will find list at the bottom of this post with links! Here are the pics:
