scrapbooking top 50 august challenge

when i saw  the butterflies on your challenge sight , i knew that kelly anns butterflies would suit perfectly
I have never  been into  butterflies until  last year, when i happened to go to class  that on the layout had butterflies,
now, i can not get enough, especially with A Mothers Art,   butterflies, from Kelly Ann Oosterbeek, who designs her own self adhesive sticker butterflies,  they are soo cute, &  now i have  seen, that i can make  one colour into another  making another colour,  orange, using marker pens, that Kelly  mentioned to  me . how cool.

i had visions of how they would go on my page, but this did not eventuate
here is what i have used to create  my layout.
I have used , the crafters workshop stencil  then with
Colour Blast  texture paste  another of my favourites in my stash,  using
singing the blues
Lipstick ( pink)
and  of course,  Kellys  butterflies, A Mothers Art
made orange

i have some   music  washi tape as well added.
all on white card stock.

hope  you like it ,
Hope to do more of these in the coming months.
until i check out tomorrow what Septembers challenge is ,  where has the year gone

A2Z Scraplets August CHallenge

Thanks  very much A2Z just love these tic, tac, toes,  challenges, makes me think outside the box,
so this afternoon, i thought i would go with
 (1) patterned paper
 (2) a2z chipboard,  On a Adventure
(3)  stamping,

 (1)  The patterned paper i  have used,  is Kaiser's  Pack your Bags.  its a very old collection, but have plenty of, so  I have cut one out  a  sheet out and turned it over and  inked it  on to  second sheet, ( same )  in distress Vintage photo ink. I also have used a  6 x 6 inch  patterned papers to mat  under the photos.
(2) with  the word,  On a  Adventure, i have  used  Lindy magical Hydranda  Blue, which i recently bought at gympie, on our recent adventure with my best friend Natalie.

 I will have to find more of these cute  tubs,  they  have  so many uses  &  they  dont take too much room,
what i did with it was to use my water brush and dipped into the  bottle and then  started at the bottom, i wanted the effect of  light at the top and darker at the bottom,  ( i  usually dont play), so what i get on the page is what i  get, so have gone over  it a few times at the bottom , to make it look darker, and then have used  dimensional magic  to make it pop.  i just  like getting started and finishing my project within  a couple of hours,

(3) stamping ,
Here i have used several  brands,
Kaszazz  for the  2 birds,   with black staz on ink
the car,  is from Kaiser -  On the Move  stamping collection  i have coloured in with  Colour Blast texture  paste for the windscreen  and headlights -  Sunshine and the  bumper bars   with  colour  blast  - Steel,  again i have got out the  tub of  Magical Hydrangea Blue an painted the car ( my favourite colour  blue)
The Seagulls  &  word -  you never know when  your making  a  memory are  both  from Kaiser stamps both are inked in staz-on  inks

hope you enjoy my layout,

 not sure if i will complete any more challenges,
i have  in the coming weeks.
an orchid show to to help set up ( hubby grows orchids)
  sewing -  to fix my dress for a wedding ( not mine wedding  LOL)

1 2 3 August Challenge

 hi another  month is passing us by,  thanks for  this   challenge,  i found this one really easy to do i  did it in  a matter of minutes at a recent retreat, but then had to wait to get hoe to print out the photos.

before leaving on my  retreat, i  embossed some white card stock,

I have used , Sea Breeze Kaiser papers, p 2017 refresh for a change instead of brown card stock,
at the retreat,  i cut my papers  into squares, added a brown car, and  then added the photos today,
 I have used ,Close to my Heart stamps for the  date and   the word scrapbook
the  word ,explore, i  had printed out at home, but when i looked in my goodie box, there i found  this explore, which is much nicer than mine
 i had fun wit this one, now to continue y story on the  other side of the paper  with another challenge,
until next month, where has the time gone, September  soon & i haven't even started my Xmas cards, they went  all the way to Gladstone and home again ,without even opening  the  bag
 best fins some time   soon.
