Jot Mood Board - November 2016

Such a beautiful mood board at JOT this month.

Oh.... these colours....
copyleannemoodboardnovember


And here is my page.....


I added water to Colour Blast Shimmer Dusts in Paris (green) and Peacock (blue) and paint this directly onto the cardstock background. I also did some paint splatters.
I also took the lids off Colour Blast Shimmer Spray in Steel (sparkly grey), and paint some onto the page. I love how the colours mixed as I added the Shimmer Spray!

I've used some awesome embellishments, some things from my stash that I have had forever, the flair and the green acrylic apple. But also are some of my stock favourite things:
sequin bow, resin glitter dots, spotty buttons from D-lish Scraps;
and a DIY circle from Charms Creations, which I painted with the Colour Blast Shimmer Dusts.



 
 
Thank you JOT for such an inspiring mood board!

White with One - November

This months colour at White with One......




I kept it clean and used some perfect papers and embellishments to create this page:

 
Things from the vault.... the pinwheel butterfly is something I got many years ago from a cool little company called "A Lil Something" and pulled out some old BRADS and felt flower from the stash too!

Resin flowers and doily from D-lish Scraps.


 
"True Story" diecut is another thing from my stash - no idea where I got it from now! ha!

And as you can see from the journaling - a page just to say thanks to my Mum who always knows best and happens to make the best Ginger Kisses!

Thanks for looking,

Amanda

Show Us Your Stuff - November

Welcome to November....

Can't wait to share this page, cos I think it is kinda cool!

The challenges at SUYS this month is NO PEOPLE.



And here is my page and some close ups...




A cluster here of all good things...
Handmade items from:
Cool cogs and Glitter arrow from Burdy's Embellies
Chevron from Charms Creations
Felt bow from Rainbow Splendour
Flair from Funky Flair Studio

Plus awesome embellishments (puffy alphas, resin, punchinella, doily) from D-lish Scraps.



And I love the background I created .... here's what I did.
1. Gesso's the background
2. Dribbled white house paint around and left to dry overnight.
3. Sprinkled 4 colours of Colour Blast Colour Shimmer Dust onto a big sheet of plastic.
4. Sprayed Shimmer Dust with water and watched the colours run
5. Pushed cardstock onto the colour and then dried it quickly with heat gun to keep the colour through the centre of the layout and not all over the page!

Oh so messy, but how cool does it look??~!!!!

Thanks for looking today!

Kraft Plus - October challenge

Hi again,

Sharing my page for this cool challenge at Kraft Plus....





I used clear gesso on the kraft background, so when I used the water-mixed colours, they would not soak in. I added a layer of texture paste as well. The green and orange was created with Colour Blast Shimmer Dusts, which I also used to colour the ribbon, muslin and Charms Creation book paper Terrific Tab.

Behind the photos are: plasters mesh, a doily, brown paper bag, as well as the ribbon and muslin.


 
 
Other Blast from the Past items include:
eyelets,
metal brad
punches for the butterfly and flowers.
 
 
A fun layout to create! Thanks for looking,
Amanda

Scrap the Boys - October

A fab Sketch challenge at Scrap the Boys this month.



And here is my take on it....

I gesso'd the background and once dry, I sprayed with water and started sprinkling Colour Shimmer Dusts from Colour Blast. Kinda smooshed and moved the colour around, dribbled, sprayed, used lids to make circles.... and generally made a mess. Add a few bits of green at the end!




Finished with resin glitter dots, flowers and sequin bows from D-lish Scraps.
 
It is definitely fun pulling out all those old photos and scrapping them, this one of my dear old Dad as a baby.
 
Thanks for looking,
Amanda
