Stuck Sketches - February 15 sketch

Hello all!
I played along this weekend with Stuck Sketches!.....
Here was the first sketch...
 - which I rotated for my take...
I combined some pink papers, with some white cardstock and soft pink paint splatters.
Loads of D-lish Scraps goodies, and of course, Charms Creations!
And then the second sketch...
I did some machine stitching - the circle and along the top, and then painted using Colour Artist Inks by Colour Blast Australia. I used less paper behind the photo, as I loved the stitched circle painted and did feel it needed more!
Some embellies from my stash, combined with lovely Charms Creations!
Thanks for looking today!

Kraft Plus February

Love a good challenge! Here is my page for the brilliant ABBA challenge at Kraft Plus...
I cut out Abby's name - Abba style.
I printed lyrics on some water paper, coloured it red/maroon using Colour Artist Inks (by Colour Blast Australia) and layered this behind the letters, behind the photo and in small strips on 2 edges.

 Charms Creations Music Paper embellishments were perfect!


I hope Abby feels the power of the lyrics - "I can take the future, even if I fail...."
Thanks for looking

Kraft Plus January 2018

Check out the new challenge this month!
I am NOT a coffee drinker.... instead I used the chocolate brown tones and some stamps and splatters to mimic the split coffee.
Love my Charms Creations! I cut the circle in half to use in two places!
Lots of layers behind the photo.
I made the splatters and brown spills with Colour Blast Shimmer Cube in Leather.
Thanks for looking

SUYS - January 2018 Challenge

Happy New Year!
New challenge at SHOW US YOUR STUFF - you can see the DT samples and enter via FACEBOOK now. So much easier!
Here is the challenge:
No automatic alt text available.
And here is my page sample!
Okay.... first things first - I LOVE this wood grain background paper - it is the new from All About Scrapbooks.
Next - the paper rolls - I handmade these. I used water paper and coloured them with Colour Artist Inks (from Colour Blast). I painted, then stamped, then rolled. I totally love the effect!
In the close ups, you will see the embellishments I used to finish. 
Gold thickers - also from All About Scrapbooks.
Charms Creations DIY heart - also coloured with Colour Artist Inks.
Resin flowers and Flair Button from D-lish Scraps.
Stickers from Cocoa Vanilla Studio.
I have NO idea where the white floral diecut frame came from. But I think it looks fab!
