A LIttle Scrappin’

Having a go at Scrappin’ again!

I am continuing my scrapping journey, ever so slowly…

This time I have gone over the border and enjoyed another session with Fiona Paltridge.
As soon as she said she was doing a grunge page I just couldn’t resist!
I don’t know about you, but there is just something so relaxing and enjoyable about going to someone else’s workshop…you can just get messy and enjoy it!
Anyway, here is what I made.
I did take it home and add a little of something that I learnt from the Andy Skinner’s Book of Ruinations on-line class…and the whole page just ‘popped’ .

This picture of me was taken when I was about 1 year old in my nana’s front garden.
My nana had the best garden for kids to play in. It was so overgrown with lots of hiding places, things to explore and flowers to pick…and we picked heaps of them all the time.
The Indigoblu butterflies on this page where sprayed with lots of different sprays out on Fiona’s front lawn…which turned blue after everyone had finished (so funny).

I love Paris…even in the rain!

I Love Paris…Even In The Rain

At Fashionable Stamping Challenges this month we have the theme
of Winter In Paris!

Living nowhere near Europe, and with our seasons in Australia the opposite to those in Europe,
I had to really put my thinking cap on for this challenge.
I didn’t even know whether it snows in Paris!
So, my thoughts went to what I thought Winter was ~ and any-which-way I looked at it I couldn’t escape the rain!
 So my piece for you this month has Wintry colours and rain.
The background uses purple and blue DI’s on an acrylic block that was lightly spritzed with water.
Then placed onto some white card.  
A little water flicking,
and a little bleach,
and voila, that was my background.

My writing is a little dodgy, 
but I think it suits the card just the same.

Masking is one of my favourite things to do, it adds so much depth…so
the stamping is done using masking to create layers.
Then I also used masking of the inked area to stamp some drips…to add another couple of layers!
In the end, this is a monochromatic one-layer piece.
And, even with it’s simplicity, it is one of my favourite makes for this year!
The girls at FSC have come up with some inspiring and very different versions on the theme this time.
Please pop on over and check out the awesomeness of their creativity,
 be inspired, and maybe join in our fun.
Flonzcraft are our sponsors this fortnight and have a generous $20 gift voucher up for grabs,
there are spotlights and a top 3 as well.

Stamping must be the focal point on your project!

I hope you enjoyed this as much as me.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges~
