White.. With 1 August challenge - magenta purple

I will start by saying I'm not a fan of purple at all. Too dark for me. I'm all about the bright colour's, lots of layers and plenty of texture! .. 2 out of 3 on this layout was there!

So to rid myself of the darkness, I rolled on a layer of burgandy paint mixed with gesso, then i toned it down with plenty of white paint mixed with golden gel mediums 'glass bead gel' mixed into it. It came out a messy, grundy, bumpy mess. 

Then it was time for some tyre track circles using big circular hand sweeps on the page & Flutterby Designs black acrylic paint and i have added plenty of layers using bits from my stash and my store - The Resin Rainbow.

So this was the challenge this month! 

and this was what I came up with!  .. certainly no snow or cold weather when we took this picture of us all in the pool in Malaysia earlier this year!  - hence the title 'no snow here'.

Products used: (click on the link to go to the items or website)
Snowflake Decals are a cut up Heidi Swapp mask from at least 10 years ago. I misted with them and then cut them up to use as well.

Hello Everyone

Welcome to July!  .. how did that happen so fast ??

I absolutely love the colour for this month 'Island Paradise' it makes me think of sunshine, water, swimming and all things summer. It sure doesnt feel like summer right now in Brisbane Qld Australia with a high of 16deg! ..

The pics are of my youngest on a recent family holiday to somewhere very warm (Penang, Malaysia). He became a steam pork bun addict in no time at all and even figured out how to say it in Malaysian so that the sellers at the macaan stalls would give him an extra one for free!

Show Us Your Stuff June Challenge

Hi Everyone

The challenge this month at Show Us Your Stuff was all about using up abandoned supplies. It was one that I figured ALOT of people would be able to do simple because - lets face it, we all have supplies that we have moved on from or we purchased on a whim or just because. So with that idea in mind, and me being a tiny bit of a hoarder it was time to make the most of the opportunity!

So the idea is to use at least 1 abandoned/no longer loved supply and incorporate it into this sketch!

The sketch this month was sponsored by my own store The Resin Rainbow with a gift certificate valued at $10 for a lucky scrapper!

My entry was a full of colour variety that featured a few abandoned supplies as well as some awesome resin embellishments!  .. I had some creative fun with this one and layered the background with TH lime green mixed with gesso, then I used a dot mask and poured a steady stream of white in curves all over the top - very ala Anita Rodway!

The abandoned items I used was the white embroidery floss and the lime green flag. It turns out I dont have that many abandoned supplies, because i have such a small space I dont tend to hoard as much as I thought - except paint, and resin and moulds ..

Handmade embellishments: Lime green flag from Rainbow Splendour,
Resin dots, black Daisy, clear stars and resin roses all from The Resin Rainbow
Yum-o flair is actually a badge from Wendy's - repurposed (finally!), it has been in my stash for at least 5 years. 

So now that you have seen mine, follow this link for all the rest of the details and to see what the rest of the incredibly DT have done with the same challenge! 

Happy Scrapping!

Show Us Your Stuff May Challenge - hearts & poems

This layout came together really late at night after a few days of over thinking it. The pic of my hurricane boy was perfect and I knew what I wanted to do to make it happen!

The challenge this month was to use both hearts and a poem on your page.

The sponsor for this month is Charms Creations. Some of the most gorgeous fabric embellishments I have seen and they are all hand sewn and unique! 

The poem featured was suggested to me by ? From the SUYS DT. I just couldn't find one that fitted, but this is perfect and absolutely is hurricane boy down to a T.

Products used:
Resin camera, moustache and 2 hearts (black and white) are by The Resin Rainbow. 
Resin camera:
Resin Moustache:
Resin Heart design in Black:
Resin Heart design in White:,sort:title,order:ascending/264184548/copy

The hexagon shaped pin with coloured pieces is from Rainbow Splendour.
The 3 feathers are also from Rainbow Splendour and started their lives as lime green until I painted them and then added glossy accents to make them pop!

Denim Rose is handmade and from my stash, I know I purchased it a few years ago from a online store that is no longer around but I can't remember the name. 

The background is layered papers, and vellum tags, envelopes and glassinine bags. The white mesh is the protective mesh from a bottle of duty free alcohol, once it was stapled flat it was perfect for some extra texture. All items in the background have been stapled on. 

Moustache on my son is just a stick on .. 

Now that you have checked out my layout, go and see what the rest of the DT have created here:

Happy Scrapping.

Show Us Your Stuff April Challenge - Stamping! sponsored by StampinUp!

Ahhh stamping .. its something I don't do much or have many of. I figured out early in my scrapbooking life that I was not a stamper. I've tried workshops, classes, YouTube clips to try and help me out - most to no avail. I'm a paper, paint and texture fan for sure. 

The sponsor for this month is DeeZigner Papercraft is very generously donating a $30 Stampin' Up! gift voucher for our lucky winner!
So it wasnt much of a surprise that the SUYS challenge for this month was about using your stamps, I didn't really have many to choose from.  I made the most of what I did have however and used them to compliment the background in small details and used my viewmaster acrylic stamp in a few spots too. 

LIttle known fact about me. I like fries on my burgers. It seems that my daughter does also. This was one of the very few times that she has had a burger from the Golden Arches and did just as mummy does - opened it up, took out the pickles and inserted her fries. Yep, shes definetely a mini-me.

Plenty of gorgeous resin pieces from The Resin Rainbow were added to this layout included:
Baby Pink Filigree scroll flat layer (cut in half)
Cupcake and base which were initially white but I then painted them in Colourblast Texture Paste in Lipstick and Teal.
Pink Heart
Bow Tie
Teal mini Roses 
Teal butterfly
And resin dots are scattered around the page. 
All paper items were out of my scraps boxes. 

Background was done using the triangle stencil and Colourblast texture paste in lipstick. I then used the kaisercraft triangle stencil in black stazon ink for added definition. The viewmaster stamp was added on the side, under the title and ended up being hidden under the image.

The title is recoloured thickers, alpha stickers and HS ghost letters. 

So now you have see mine, let me see yours. Go and create your work of art in whatever form you like (it doesn't have to be a layout!) and upload it to the SUYS blog! 

Enjoy you month and thanks for stopping by!
