123 October challenge

thanks  for this great challenge,

I recently went  away for the weekend and came home via  a different way, we stopped at a creek to take some photos, ( i don't usually paddle in creeks,  but my feet were swollen)  it wasn't til i got home & saw your challenge , that i thought , what  a great  colours to work on these photos

Colour - Lime
Word   - Today
Tech   -  Spots

 I have used black cardstock.
then with 2 stencils, on lime green card stock i have used white gesso,

 i have put the stencils on top of each other one likes rays the other spots to create the background,

I love Kaiser Limelight collection,  but did not want to overpower it with papers so with the collectables and a bit of gauge . i bent the leaves for depth and popped up a few  flowers,
i used collage photos and coloured with green background on the page then matted it with black.

I have popped the word today and the bird as well.

until next month, not sure i will have time next month to do challenges,  but will see how i go,

leaving tomorrow for 10  days holiday, so  beach, sand,  hopefully sun, fishing & my cousins are calling in  )when i return home its back to  taking people to appointments,  ( im the driver for all family members, i better stay healthy )

 may have  a few days at home  in  November,  ohh dear then its Christmas time, another hectic  month,  ( now where am i with my Christmas cards makes  ? ? ?)

where did the year go ? ? ? ?

 until next time  have fun, enjoy  scrapping .

white with 1 October challenge

 i have lots of ink pads tthat i bought on the cheap, wondering if  stamping would take a hold of me,when i started scrapping many years ago,  i do have lots of lvoely stamps now, but rarely think of them on layouts  but on cards,  but those 1st lot of cheap ink pads,  that i bought are still sitting there, as i  love all the new ones that come out, hence, they are almost dried up, so i thought it does not matter , what i do with them i dont have reinkers for them.

 with this in mind, the challenge of the month, peach puff, , so i got out my ink pads( only one  orange of) couture creations craft mat, water spritzer inked my  mat, sprayed water on the ink  pad a bit of white gesso, and mixed to the consistency i wanted,
My Kaiser Stencil, brick work, does wonders for  this layout of the church at Casino, i  brushed the  ink over  the stencil,
Then with  recently  bought stamps from Casino, I  used , kaiser lattice and morocco clear stamps with left over  gesso & ink around the page.

 i have lots of chipboards , so going though,  I found one that had trees and brick work, well the trees can do for another layout, inking it with Dew Drop Brilliance moonlight white  ( which i just love)
 I inked the fence, words  bricks and swirls.

i recently, won  a prize from Close to my Heart September challenge and just picked it up today, and  wow theres apricot  embellishments just the right colour, here i have added  hearts, arrow, and stars to the layout.

 The flowers are a mixture of prima flowers and ribbon flowers, which soe  have  inked just the edges
 I have used, glossy accents on the words  Casino Church.

 until next month,
thanks for stopping by,
oh , just noticed that the  flash on the photo.

paper addicts October challenge

 hi all, well, i know its been a while, since ive done any challenges and well, im not fully recovered as yet,  still sore,  but doctors assure me , that i have now  a pulled muscles  from all the coughing i ave done, but thought ,after my great weekend away, scrapping for the first time in over a month, i  thought i would start this challenge for paper addicts  using the double layout  sketch,

here is the sketch  and i have just realized, that i have a extra photo in my double layout , but never mind, all will be good

I recently won from Kraft Plus august challenge a prize from Sawyers Place in Western Australia, &  the prize came  yesterday ,it is lovely receiving  gifts in the post, something that does not happen too much  here at our house. 

So I  have started with black cardstock, but then thought, that i have had some acetate papers with the words road trip are we there yet, which i must admit, ive had for many years , too many to count,  you have been there, i will use it one day, well, now is the time to start using these  items as im getting older and i have paid for them , not  to  sit in the cupboard to be admired. i have cut it up so it could be used over 2 pages, so  then i got out my white card stock, which showed up the words so much better than the black. 
As i said i  received my prize from Sawyer Place in it  was some Tyre Washi Tape, and i have had a car washi tape since they became fashion, 
I have Sugar & spice Outdoor Adventure,  60 paper pack in my stash, ( yes, i do  use other papers other than my addiction for Kaiser papers)  the cars seems to be the right paper for our adventure, that my friends & I went on over last weekend, a trip to Casino.

the motel we  got at casino  was the last 2 rooms, so we were lucky to get it and so close to everything , that we needed for the weekend , just around the corner  from scrapbooking class.   clubs, and a bit of sight seeing ,as  well set our clocks one hour ahead, but arrived over one hour early for the class ,we  were al lso o keen to start classes at  9am which did not start til 10am, so we drove around and did some sight seeing and i took some photos for hopefully more challenges  to do this week. 
until  next time  tanks for dropping in
