Scrapmatts & Show us your Stuff

Good morning and welcome.

Today I would like to share with you two layout that I created for my Scrapmatts Design Team work as well as playing along with Show us your Stuff this month.  Don't often get time to play along at Challenges but I absolutely loved the sketch and couldn't resist.



Here is what I created.

Using a picture of my husband taken last year when we did a little trip up the North coast.  He loves fishing and would love to buy a property here.


I rotated the sketch and used only one photo.  I have used the new Prima St Tropez range and the background has been inked and stamped using Tim Holtz distress ink along with Prima wax.  My handmade item is the dyed muslin.




Here a few close ups.



My next page was created using ScrapBerry's Primavera Collection.
The picture taken of my daughter was taken when we went along and did a cup cake icing class, turning cup cakes into a bouquet of flowers.  I have cut the cupcake pictures and added them into my floral spray on the rh side of my picture.


On this page I have stamped using a 49 & Market stamp as well as Carabelle Studio, these have then been coloured using Prima watercolour pencils and paints.



A few close ups.


The frame has been heat embossed with Stampendous Aged Scarlet, love how the flecks of gold just pop through the colour.


Lots of layering with fussy cutting and flowers.

Products Used:

Prima - St Tropez paper, flowers, watercolour pencils & paints, wax
Scrapmatts - CB6062 Shells,CB4061 Assorted Words & CB6091 Ornate Frames

Challenge 27 - Creative Artiste Mixed Media Blog



Welcome to Creative Artiste's Challenge 27

Welcome to all my Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors
             Today Creative Artiste Challenge 

               Blog goes live with our 26th challenge...

           


           Thank you to everyone who shared their fabulous projects with us for Challenge #26 last month.

    We were thrilled with the number of entries and fabulous creations. Keep and eye out for the winners.

          

          

                  Challenge 27 It is sponsored by Judy McKay..


This months challenge was to use metal die cuts and stamping,
 here is my take on this challenge.

I;ve up cycled packaging from a mobile phone cover. I hate throwing out perfectly good pieces of packaging and I loved how this turned out.


I have filled with Darrel Lee choc coated licorice, the perfect gift if you ask me.



I've used some lovely old scraps from K & Company. 
I stamped around the edges using a Prima stamp as well as on the clear acetate window,using white stazon ink.

Ive used a feather and heart die to cut out some of my embellishments along with a gorgeous Scrapmatts chipboard feather.

Thanks for stopping by and your comments are always appreciated.

Until next time!!!!

Creative Artiste's Challenge 25


Happy Friday to all our Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors.
live with our 25th challenge...




Thank you to everyone who shared their fabulous projects with us for Challenge #24 last month.

We were delighted with the number of entries and amazing creations. It made choosing a winner and Top Three very difficult. 



The winner's post is below this one. Have a look to see if you were successful.


OUR SPONSOR THIS MONTH IS:

DecoArt

who are offering this fabulous bundle as the prize for our winner



Our theme this month is, as usual,


"Anything Mixed Media Goes" 



I decided to decorate a gift bag for my friends birthday.

Who doesn't love admiring the gift wrapping as well as the gift in side and its such a great way to up-cycle those paper bags as well use up scraps laying around on your desk.



These are the best pictures I could get.  Due flooding here in QLD we have have only had intermittent internet and phone as well as having our roads cut off.  Not that I am complaining as so many around us lost so much more.  The inconvenience of a the above cannot compare to what you see when I look around.



I did want to share more pics as well as some of the flooding but I will have to do that next time as I am battling get these ones uploaded.

Until next time happy crafting and I look forward to see your work.

Take Care

Scrapmatts Guest Designer CSI & Kraft Plus Challenge

Welcome

Sharing with you this month is some pages I've created with Scrapmatts products as a guest designer over at CSI.  I love working with Scrapmatts products and if you haven't checked them out, GO HERE.  Brand new products have been uploaded to their website and whether your into cards, mixed media or project life, you won't be disappointed.


First up here, I have pulled a photo of myself from the archives, you know the ones.  Way before digital camera's were around and you didn't take a hundred shots to get the perfect one, mostly because film was way to expensive to develop as well.  So we work with what we have, this picture is about one of a handful I have when I was pregnant with my first child.  Whilst not picture perfect I do love now when I look back at it and not only see how young I was, lol, but other things in the background that were a big part of our life back then.

CAPTURE THE MOMENT
Scrapmatts sponsors CSI and this month as Design Team members were played along as guests.  Here is my creation for the above palette.



The background paper used here is one I picked up from Kaiser Kraft and the rest of the layering is from scraps laying around as well as a fabric tag that I have taken from some clothing.  
As always there is plenty of mixed media product used to create the background and I have used distressed embossing powder on the Scrapmatts rose leaves.





Kraft Plus + Denim Resolution 



Another great Challenge is Kraft Plus - this month we had to use denim, well who doesn't have an old pair of jeans laying around and we know as scrapbookers we are always up for a good challenge.  If this means cutting something up, well enough said!!!!




To create my background I've used strips of denim which have been frayed to give them a distressed look.  Used also are water colours, stamps, gesso and embossing powders.


As you can see you from the close up loads of layering and I have also recycled the tabs and seams from the denim jeans.  They add such a cool look to you page.



On the close up here you can see how gorgeous the Scrapmatts cogs look when they have been embossed with a thick copper embossing powder.  This cluster was also created using a clothing label tag, Prima chipboard, metal tag and of course denim.
