Rainbow Splendour Sketch

Good Morning! Did you pick yourself up one (or both?!) of the fabulous Rainbow Splendour kits last release? If you did, have you had a go at the sketch challenge too? I decided to use the gorgeous Chatterbox kit and the sketch and had so much fun.

And this is the page that I created:

There was so much in the kit to play with, and I included a lot on my page, but I still have plenty left over for another project (or two!). I have used the glitter frame, 4x3 embossed card, epoxy stickers, wood veneer, felt bow and pretty pin. Can you spot them all?! I even have some of the cut aparts tucked into layers as well. I finally also  had a play with some art screens to create my silver spotty background, I am looking forward to playing some more with these!

I love a pretty embellishment cluster and the felt bow and epoxy sticker are perfect to include.

Lots of pretty layers going on, and I just had to use a Dear Lizzy collection to scrap these photos!

 Adding a DIY Charms Creations banner to this last embellishment cluster helped finish off the page. To colour I simply "smoodged" some distress ink (tumbled glass I think) onto my craft mat, sprayed with water and swiped my banner through to pick up the colour. You can even go back with your foam applicator and darken the edges a bit for some depth.

So, that is my page, have you done yours yet?! Oh and check out the link above if you are interested in subscribing to the Rainbow Splendour kits!

Thanks for stopping by,

Guest Designer at 1,2,3 Challenge

I am a guest designer over at the 1,2,3 Challenge blog this month! They have a great challenge if you need some inspiration to kick start your creativity. This month the prompts are:

I even managed to make a pretty pastel boy page! Here is what I created with the prompts:

I used lots of pretty Cocoa Vanilla papers and a few die cuts too. Throw in a D-lish Scraps flair and a Charms Creations pretty pastel heart and the page just about did itself! For the glitter aspect I added two versions, firstly with a little tiny heart stencil and some glitter texture paste on the background and then using silver glitter washi and hand cutting some cute little hearts.

I am loving these pretty doilies from D-lish Scraps too, they are so delicate!

A bit pf peachy pink thread helps add a bit of texture behind the cluster.

And really, the flair says it all! These photos of my boy make me laugh!

Thanks for stopping by and check out the 1,2,3 Challenge blog to see more great pages with these prompts.

Scrap the Boys Share

Good Afternoon! I have been on uni break for just over two weeks now and the time is flying, I wish it would slow down just a little. But, on a positive I have managed to do some scrapping. Today I am sharing the page that I have created for the July Scrap the Boys challenge, which is to be inspired by the following image:

When I saw the challenge I knew that I had the perfect photos to use, and since Charms Creations is a sponsor I knew that I had to include at least one of those too. I started with making a background in sandy and sea colours and then started adding things on top!

I kept the colours pretty much to the blues and teals and threw in some ochre yellow. I even found an acetate cloud in the perfect teal to go with my grouping of clouds!

In my grouping of clouds is a silver glitter Charms Creations cloud, a Rainbow Splendour wood veneer cloud and the acetate cloud, a great mix of colour size and texture!

The other perfect add was the sandstone heart also from Charms Creations. it is a perfect neutral if you need something subtle, but in my case I thought it was a perfect match for the colours in the rocks that my boy is sitting on.

So that is it, my Scrap the Boys page. I hope you have a go and maybe you might be a lucky winner of some gorgeous Charms goodies!
