hydrangea - Jot Mood board challenge

Hello, back on this last day of the month to share a page - sneaking this one in for the lovely mood board challenge at Jot!!


Here's what I've come up with:
 I've used some pictures from our recent holiday - Tasmania had the most beautiful displays of hydrangea's.  They fit in well with this challenge.
Here are a few close-up's:
 I did a banner style design for this page and once again, I've added in a water colour background with my paints. 
 I dived into my stash and pulled out all colours from this challenge mood board - such a fun way to use up 'bits'.
I'm off to link this page up - thanks so much for coming along to visit ♥

summer adventure - Kaisercraft Feb challenge

Hello there, hope you've had a fabulous week!!  I've managed a few more scrapbook challenges thanks to a lovely scrappy craft day during this past week!
I'm sharing a page I created for the challenge over at the Kaisercraft blog - they have a great mood board!
 Here's what I've come up with:
 I'm using the Sandy Toes collection!  I love the beach die-cut elements!!
Here are some close-up's:
 I've layered a few of the papers and distressed the edges.  My background is watercolour paint.
 I have double printed my photo so I could offset one - just to add more layers and depth.  Love how it's turned out.  I definitely want to scrap a few more beachy photo's with this fun collection ♥
Thanks for coming by ☺

koala in the wild - Kraft Plus scrapbook challenge

 Hello there - happy Monday ☺  Just popping in to share another page I finished last week for the Kraft Plus challenge - the challenge is to use postage stamps!

 I decided to scrap a page using a photo from our recent road trip across Australia - I printed off some postage stamps of koala's and a camper - matching in with the photo of a koala we saw in the wild ☺

my pages has turned out quite monochromatic!!  I did a bit of watercolour in the background, layered some papers and added in some chipboard and stamping.  The stamps have been added in as embellishments to the page.
Here are some close-up's:

Had fun with this challenge!
Thanks for popping in ♥

relax - Artastic challenge

 Hello there, it feels like I'm getting my 'scrapping fingers' back again.  I've been inspired by recent challenges out there and have joined in with a few.
Today, I'm sharing a page I created for the Artastic challenge.

 The inspiration is this painting by  Cathy McClelland called Green Lorikeets and
the requirement is to use paint.

I love the watercolour effect the painting has so I've gone with that look and used watercolour paints in my background.
Here are some close-up's:

The die-cuts and wood veneers are all from our local Reject store - I love the product range they are coming out with!

Thanks for coming by - hope to share some more soon ♥
