a2z may challenge

A2Z may challenge,  thanks very much for this great sketch,
Today ,  went  to my friends last workshop wonders  event, &  did some shopping , they had 4 classes  I did not do the classes today & saw some friends  but bought some stencils & Colour Blast texture paste, which i just love.
i  wanted to try them before i went away on holidays tomorrow, so  thought , i will do the a2z challenge  then  i only have one to do if i  get time when i return,

I was having so much fun with the stencils and  new Colour Blast  texture paste ,that i forgot that there was  sketch, even though it was sitting in front of  me.

so  using   the  A2Z  roses chipboard, that i won in the Easter challenge, i have done them with  Kaisers  pens,  i had started to  use the fire engine texture paste ,but with the white gesso under neath , they were turning pink and i did not want that,  so turn it over and do the other side,
other  products i have used are :-

2016 is from My 2 angels.
papers  are   Kaiser timeless
washi tape
words  are from  Bekki Higgins Project life

im not really wrapped  with the layout, as i said i was only going to use the  stencils and  the  chipboard,  may pull it apart  after i return,  but dont get me wrong, the sketch is great, its just  that my plans did not go as well as i  thought they would . ( it may grow on me the layout i mean )
until next month.

scrapbooking top 50 Australia May challenge

National Scrapbooking top 50  Australia  challenge,
Another new challenge to try, a change is as good as a holiday, they say, so changing my challenges , give me new directions, that i may have not tackled before,

this month for May is a tic tac toe,  my eyes usually fall for  the blues always before any other  colour,  i was going though some old photos from expo days and here i am in grey, a colour i rarely use these days.  i could have gone for the blues,  but the flowers in the background     just happened to be  orange and yellow,   so created a new direction for me to follow.

I have  many kits,  that i bought when i worked, i will do them , once i  finish work, but  6 years later , they are still  there, so i went though them and  i found some papers that had the right colour scheme,
I have used Basic grey  papers second city  roscoe village , sec  4703
                                                  second  city southport           sec 4706.
i have used grey butterflies  washi tape, another   product in my stash, i dont even remember buying that ,so  must have been a present.
I have used yellow   rose resins and other flowers from my  abundance of flowers.
I have inked in distressed in spiced marmalade
Chipboard letters are  coloured in with Kaiser-fusion grey   with glossy accents over  the top

 hope  you enjoy this ,as much as i  created it ,
until next time , have a good day.

National Scrapbook top 50 challenge day

Thanks  National Scrapbook    day for this bright   interesting challenge.
i was going to wait til Wednesday,  to complete this , but thought,  i may be worse than i feel now &   doing these bright colours just might be the key to feeling better.
I may be scrapped deprived. LOl
I recently received  for my birthday Sweet Summertime 5th Anniversary Limited Edition by Crystal Wilkerson paper  pack, i loved the bright colours &  thought, i wonder if i will get a challenge to work with them ,

I've also used butterflies  from  Kelly-Ann Oosterbeeks from a Mothers Art ,  just love these little fellows

So here is my version, i had other thoughts when i started , but  then  it sometimes turns out a whole lot different than when one starts, i will have to see if i can get more of these papers at the next craft show coming up in June to work  with more papers.

tonight  as soon as i saw those lovely rich colours, i knew the papers i  would  use,  finding a photo to suit ight be the challenge,  but  i just opted for  our caravan ,when we  went away in February, so now can continue on  with these papers and photos  for our holiday

i will have a look at your tic tac toe  challenge, it looks interesting. something different to try
