11th February - Sketch

Today's challenge s a ...

 Sketch - Made by me (Anna), inspired by Lisa-Marie's Sparkle and Shine layout.

I hope you like it! Here's what the DT did with it....



I'm pretty thrilled that a previous layout was inspiration behind this gorgeous sketch challenge!  As you can see, I layered like a mad thing - as usual!  This pic is of my daughter (front and centre) and all her cousins - my SIL had arranged a photoshoot and printed up a whole batch of canvases as a surprise for my folks for Christmas last year!

Guest Designer - Judy
I love layers and textures and have used both in this layout. The background card stock has been misted and stamped and painted with watercolours before applying the final layer of gesso through a text stencil. I have used some tapestry mesh in the layers to give texture here too. Thanks for the opportunity to share my layout as a guest designer this month.

I hope that has inspired you to have a go and join in, if so please link up your layout to the side bar.

Happy scrapping!

28th January - Mood Board

Today's Challenge is ...

A Mood Board - which was picked by DT Jinny.

The design team have really done a great job with the lovely mood board, here are their layouts...

I love love love these colors! All the blues, turquoise and green! It smells like summer! Here in Germany it is grey and rainy. I had so much fun to scrap with this moodboard!

Love this moodboard love this color. I use mixed media to layout.And I use my daughter's birthday photo.Hope you like it.


I love the colours in the mood board and couldn't wait to scrap with them, who am I kidding I scrap with these colours all the time as they are my favourite colours. My problem was deciding which photo to scrap, although I couldn't resist scrapping my newest little bear that was given to my by a student in December.

You can watch my process video here

I was drawn to the board's array of circles and fabulous colors, which include Sherwin-Williams' 2018 Color of the Year, Oceanside.  I also knew that I wanted to include photos with a water theme, as well as natural elements, like hemp twine and flowers, as inspired by the ocean, wheat field, and kiwi images.  That little bit of twinkle, in the bottom, wave photograph, even translates into glitter elements within my design.

This is one of the prettiest mood boards I have ever worked with!  The colour palette is right up my alley and I adore all the textures and shapes of the photographs.  I took inspiration from the marble, water and mandala designs amongst the images; and I used mainly shades of teal with the odd splash of green.

I hope these gorgeous layouts have inspired you to join in with us.  Please link your layouts up to the sidebar, we would love to see them!

Happy Scrapping!
