White With 1.. May 2017 .. Deep Black

Welcome to May!
Can someone flew me where the last 4 months went to?, they have flown past!

I got a  bit clever with my title for this one. I took the chipboard word and coloured it with acrylic paint with a lettter per colour, added some crackle medium and then black paint over the top! .. while I wanted it to pop with full bright colour, that wouldn't have worked with the guidelines for the challenge or the layout! .. had forgotten all about that technique!

Products Used
Black booktape used as a tag strip
Resin Scroll Border from The Resin Rainbow (was cut up and glued ontop of strip)
White circle chipboard frame
Hexagon stencil with gesso and back paint on the background
Rainbow striped resin dots from The Resin Rainbow ..

Thanks for looking!

SUYS Feb Design Team Entry

Welcome to February! .. had lots of fun playing with the challenge at Show Us your Stuff for this month!


I started with a swipe of silver paint using a brayer, then I added some 'sunshine' colourblast texture paste over the top using a very vintage HS dots 'mask'. Did some searching for a pattern paper with a cute border edge that I added on. 
Somewhere in the middle of the night, I had the idea to add some silver/grey crepe paper as a sewn ruffle border to the side. 
After that the colours just came just happened. I went for a pastel pallete with baby pink, lemon, mint, cream and a pop of colour using a white/black spotty card. All cards came from my stash of ephemera. 

I received a new mold for The Resin Rainbow .. just as I was starting this layout and knew I was going to incorporate it somehow. So I cut up a part of the bespoke flower and pushed them into spot. 

Items Used:
paper flowers all by D-Lish Scraps. 

That's about it for now .. be sure to check out what the rest of the DT have done with this seriously fun challenge this month - and get yours in, you still have 2 days!

Rainbow Splendour are the sponsor this month so you dont want to miss out on your chance to win some of her amazing handmade products!

SUYS January 2017 DT Entry ..

Welcome to January! 

With summer comes water, beaches and plenty of sunshine!  .. it was a no brainer for this layout to fall into place and a pic of my DD building a HUGE sandcastle on a beach on the Gold Coast, Qld kinda made it all work. 

Here is the idea that the design team had to create with!

I grabbed a few pattern papers in colours & patterns that worked well with my mage and tore them up into smaller bits. I layered them over and under each other to make a paper collage and then added a coat of clear gel medium afterwards to keep them in place.

Items used:
yellow glitter stars & 2 butterflies by Rainbow Splendour
 Happy Days chipboard word by Corbett Creations 
Felt Bow by Dlish scraps.

you can see the rest of the amazing design teams January entries here! ..and dont forget to submit your own to win a prize pack from Burdies Embellishments!

Have a fab month!

Happy Scrapping
