White .. with 1 July Challenge - Island Paradise

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!

Supplies Used:  (click on the link to go straight to the website to grab yours!).
Resin Scallop Border by The Resin Rainbow
Small Teal Rose is from The Resin Rainbow
Clear Camera is from The Resin Rainbow

Have a safe and warm July!

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!
https://www.etsy.com/au/shop/theresinrainbow?ref=hdr_shop_menu


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: https://www.etsy.com/au/listing/289699487/mini-camera-resin-craft-embellishment
Resin Moustache: https://www.etsy.com/au/listing/280885448/moustache-resin-embellishment

Resin Heart design in White: https://www.etsy.com/au/your/shops/theresinrainbow/tools/theresinrainbow/au/listings/query:hearts,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!
Cheers

White.. With 1 April Challenge - Jester Red!

Welcome to April.

Red is my absolute favourite colour. My husband and children are well aware of my red obsession. It comes in many forms from deep crimsons to a pure primary red to a rose red. I ❤️ them all.

When WW1 announced the colour for April. I did a small happy dance! .. Had the perfect image for it and knew that it was just going to work so well! 


Those that have met me probably know our fur children Harper & Jasmine as well. Our non-running or racing completely retired lounge lizards/greyhounds. Our girl Harper worked perfectly for this and did something we have only seen her do on a small number of times. SIT!
Because of the way hounds bodies are very streamlined and mostly muscle, sitting isn't something they do easily or often. Laying down however .. That's a different story. There is a reason they are called lazy lounge lizards. 



Plenty of gorgeous resin pieces from The Resin Rainbow were used on this layout. Including:
:White heart
:White roses
:'Adore' word in red

All silk and paper flowers from d-lish scraps. 

Don't forget to enter the challenge this month & pop over to see what the rest of the creative team have done! Check it out here.


Have a great month!
cheers

SUYS March Challenge ..sponsored by Rainbow Splendour

I admit that this challenge at first had me a tad stumped. not for long though. I just needed more than 5 seconds to look at the challenge sketch and look at my images printed to find some that worked!

The sponsor this month is the amazing Rainbow Splendour! .. You can see all their amazing goodies here




As always I have gone with my own bright funky style using some paint and gesso with the TH 'faded dots' mask along with TH stains in mustard seed, blueprint sketch and cracked pistachio. 




I tore up some bright pink tissue paper and kinda roughly applied it with gel medium down the sides in a very rough way. In real life it's really bumpy and not at all smooth. The paper has a white star pattern through it but it didn't come out so well on scanning it.

The title is done with Thickers by Amy Tangerine in 'momento' font. I love how the teal colour pops with all the big stain splashes. 

Clear Triangles, teal flower and orange heart are by The Resin Rainbow (facebook & etsy store)
The Chevron Rainbow clip is by Rainbow Splendour.
The Red bird was also handmade many moons ago by Leanne Pearce from 
http://thepaintbrushgoesspottie.blogspot.com.au back when she had an etsy store. 

Well now that you have seen mine, show me yours! .. You can go to the Show Us Your Stuff blog for all the details and to upload your entry:) 

Enjoy Your Month! 

Cheers
