White.. with 1 January Challenge–Treetop

Happy 2016 to you all!
This colour reminds me of sunshine and rainbows and Kermit! .. maybe its the green, its a very frog like green isnt it? The Rainbow Connection even.

As soon as I got saw colour I KNEW it was going to lean towards a nature/tropical type image and these ones from our last trip to Penang where we stayed at Golden Sand Resort at Batu Ferringhi were PERFECT!

Lots of fabulous pieces from The Resin Rainbow have been added and some diluted gelatos were used for the big green splash on the background.

Kraft + December Challenge–Wanderlust

I am very fortunate to be asked to play along with the Kraft + challenge for December as The Resin Rainbow is happily donating a $10 prize pack to one lucky challenge entry!

janet dec kraft  travel

The moment I received the details for the challenge I KNEW exactly what image I was going to use. Our Family tends to do ALOT of holidaying and every few years we move houses/states!  .. so yes, we are slightly nomadic!

This image was taken at Murray Bridge SA as we were leaving Adelaide last December for our new home in Brisbane. It has our car and campertrailer in the background as this a view out of my side mirror. All our worldy goods (complete with 2 children and the greyhound!) are packed into the car and camper and we had a great roadtrip/holiday on the way up.


Ingredients Used:
  • Ancient Old Map paper that I had hoarded from a kit from along time ago. I used gel medium to adhere it to the background.
  • Ink is Tim Holtz.
  • Black and White Paint is by Colour Blast. It is their colour paste in charcoal and snow white.
  • HS Deco tape torn into small parts
  • Making Memories Travel Word Tags (circa 2004)
  • Grid Builders Tape
  • Flair Map Arrow Button from Funky Flair Studio
  • Red Resin Alphabet and Black/White Dots from The Resin Rainbow or buy the products here
Thanks for looking!

WW1 December Challenge–Majorca Blue

I had so much fun playing with this colour and finding an image that just suited it so well. There was no doubt it was going to be an image of my lil dude, it was just a which one?

This image was taken on a day when he had had a BIG day with face painting, lots of fun and of course, the afternoon breakdown. It always coincides with face painting so he ends up looking like a bad version of the ‘dark knight’ with a very smudged face and super puffy eyes. 


The title actually says ‘why so glum chum’ but because I used the clear resin alphabet from The Resin Rainbow and smeared some blue ink over the top its not showing up so well. The close-up images below show it much better!


Ingredients Used:
Resin Alphabet, ball border peices, cut up white mandala and blue star are all from The Resin Rainbow on etsy and on Facebook.
White muslin behind title from the first aid kit in the kitchen.

Kraft+ November Challenge ‘pink’

I was lucky enough to asked to be a guest designer for this colour due to my store The Resin Rainbow also sponsoring a prize for the month! The Resin Rainbow are providing a prize pack valued at $15 for one lucky scrapper!


I went with some lyrics from Pink’s song ‘less than perfect’ to tie in with the theme. My crazy daughter had got redskin lolly stuck in her long hair after gymnastics ones wednesday. Yes, I know (how?) and yes, it was fun to get out too. Lots of hair washing and shampoo helped it to ‘melt’. 

The lyrics I used are on the layout, but you can see them in full here.

This colour was one that I loved playing with. I started this layout at the Workshop Wonders in August in the amazing Beck Beattie’s workshop and it evolved!   The purple was just the perfect colour to bring life to this picture and make it all so very pretty! ..

The ‘make a wish’ word, hessian star, black frame, big grape paper flower were included in the workshop kit.

The circle stamp background is from Beck’s own stash. 

The small purple roses, small white doily, purple bird, and ombre resin dots are from The Resin Rainbow on facebook  or Ebay.

The silver gem strand (?), cream tiny daisy, White paper rose and larger daisies were from my own stash.

White.. with 1 August / Custard Challenge

No matter what I did, I could not get this layout to scan properly and colour correcting it was a nightmare! .. It is still too blue. Its not in real life but it just wouldnt change!


An amazing colour that was soo very easy to play with and worked really well with this image of my hubby and I on one of our last ‘motorbike date nights’ when we were living in Adelaide.


The background was done with some ‘smooshing’ using Tim Holtz stain in Banana and swiped with some white gesso as well. There is also some mesh tape from bunnings on it for texture.
The black painted  ‘memory’ is from HS and the other letters were painted with TH banana stain paint.
The white filigree layering piece on the left, the black doily and the yellow resin dots are all from The Resin Rainbow. She has a an online store on ebay and on facebook with lots of gorgeous and unique products.
The White rose had some paint and glitter splashed on it, it along with the black sequins are from D-lish ScrapsThe Flair is from Funky Flairs Studio.
