Scrap with us, mood board

For a change, i haven't used kaiser papers, 
Marion Smith paper  collection -  Romance Ch.2 
I had left over some bits of paper, in the centre was sections of it cut out for another page, i have distressed all the edges and  then , using my lucky  8 punch for a shaped design, 8 inch x 8 inch, placed pink card stock over the top of  the hole, 

Using  the collectables of Kaiser, Cherry Blossom, I have inked around the edges and bend them to give more height. 
Also adding kaiser bling, i have cut it up into pieces to make them  flow around the page. 

scrap with us, sketch challenge

 this sketch challenge of Jody Urquhart, is from scrap with us.

You will notice, that i have not used any car stock, only patterned papers from the collection of
Kaiser Lavender Haze.

from the sticker sheet of the same collection, i have added  fireflies and bling

Kaiser August Challenge

Thanks Kaiser for this great challenge.

Today. I have  used the new Time machine collection papers. Steam Engine and clocks.

          time machine sticker sheet for words, clock &  cogs.
           Stamps i have used are  all  Kaiser, -  shine bright, scrap yard. little dot ,
           bling,  black

other products
            i have used another stamp, not sure of whets its name is for specks.
            metal cogs from my 2 angels, which i have gesso and blotted brown ink on
           stars are proxy stars
i have distressed all the edges,

the little dot stamp has been smeared with gesso and randomly put on without a block. for that roughed up effect,

 this layout, is a bit different from my usual neat and tidy, girlie pages that i usually do, but did have fun creating something a bit different.

layout called , By the Light,  with my brother Terry , changing his Tyre in the light.

sketchy boards august challenge

looking at the door, made me think of base coat papers,  of course the doorknob , umm which papers do i have in that sort of collection, lilic avenue or lavender haze,  i might just have some scraps left of each, i know i use a lot of these papers,  yes, i have found some scraps of these so to get my banners, i have used my cricut machine, Close to my Heart -  Art philosophy cartridge and used different sizes to get  the max of  what i required.
 next  comes the circles, they are cut with the ebosser,
The chipboard letters are from kaszazz. just love these letters not too big or too small, and have coloured it with dew Drop Brilliance  pearleascent  lavender ink.
the 2015 is  Kaiser  sticker sheet.
i have also made some orchids using Maryanne design Collectables orchid die, which i purchased  from Fat Cats  store in Toowoomba, i  emailed them and asked if they were coming to the june show in Brisbane and  that i could collect it on the Monday,   even though a bit fiddly, i love it and have used it many times,  thinking about making some cards  for an upcoming orchid show  and also birthday cards.

White with one august challenge with custard

for a change,  i have started my layout with Amy Tangerine ready - set - go,  35786 patterned paper & added my white kaiser cardstock above. & distressing around the edges

thinking about the photos of my nephew, in Holland, i remembered that i bought some chipboard ,so getting out my gesso and Kaiser mist, yellow,  i blended them together to hopefully get a custard look.

Holland ,usually means tulips, i know that i have some stickers somewhere ,that i bought years ago, but the rearranging of the room  means they haven't been sorted yet.
so had to think of another way to add a tulip, half a circle and some triangles did the trick. i used, foundations  core-dinations  custard cardstock  i have  added some washie tape to the triangles and 2 photos in half the circle the third is patterned paper from another range of  scraps, that i have stored.

until next month,
have a wonderful day.

Kraft Plus august challenge

thanks  very much for this relaxing challenge,

this afternoon, instead of thinking of lying down with my headache, i decided to do some doodling instead, headache almost gone. will go and rest now.

     Im going though all my 70's photos and trying to get them all  scrapped one way or another, and when i saw the  doodling, i knew exactly which photos to get out of the album. I will  do a double page of this one, but don't know where all the people are to  get their permission ( to publish)  to scrap them, so they will be on a separate page. maybe go pocket style with them.

it was easy just to sit and ponder about the night my mum made the dress for me to wear to my friends engagement party, all those physic colours were in ,but i chose the maroon and white material.

so for today, words to think of just to be different, i was going to put  ME, then got out papers, no don't need papers with this one, but that word groovy looked interesting ,and so my page began.

I have had some Cristina Re  designer  diamante buckles for a while and with some black ribbon which i made double  threaded it though and added it across the page.
my belt  on my dress &  around my neck was black  swede ribbon,

hope you like it , thanks very much again
lots of fun.
