Today’s layout is inspired by the first fortnightly sketch over at Stuck?! Sketches. When I first saw it I said “this is perfect to use my 5kg box of scraps” and I did! I used my box of scraps! I’ve only made a little dent on it, it is still 4.999 kgs 😀
Because the photo I was scrapping was of a rainbow, I knew I had to make a rainbow of pattern papers 🙂 Here it is:
And here is the sketch!
As you can see in the sketch, under the strips of pattern paper, there are some splatters of mixed media. I wanted to keep my background quite white, so I sprayed with my White Heidi Shine and the result is quite subtle, but I love the shimmery effect. I am not sure how well it can be appreciated in the photo. I also used a bit with Tinsel Heidi Shine and a few black watercolour splatters. I should have waited until the ink sprays were dry before adding the watercolour splatters, as they run a bit…
For the embellishments, I used “Life is Beautiful” by Fancy Pants, and some buttons and sequins from my stash.

I’ve got a new scrapbook page today that I created for the ABC challenge on For the Love of Pretty Paper. This week the letter is V, and V is for vellum!
I had a look through my stash, as I was sure that I had some clear vellum (well, “clear” is not really the right word.. it’s a tiny bit opaque, but you know what I mean), but I couldn’t find it. So I went for the last piece of the super gorgeous printed vellum by Cocoa Vanilla Studio. I took inspiration from this layout by Crafty Jen Schow that I found on Pinterest.
And here it is!
In case you are wondering, no.. Chole is not a spelling mistake.. there is a story behind the name, and I have a layout planned to tell that story soon!
I hope you liked this and thanks for looking!
Exciting news today… I won the August challenge over at Stick it Down!! YAY! It was with my Let’s wander layout 🙂
This means I will be guest designing for them in October… And I’ll tell you something: I’ve already seen the sketch that I will have to work with and it’s awesome!! I’m so over the moon!
In the meantime, I also want to have a go at their card sketch for September. I have an idea in mind, but I just need the time to make it!
Read you soon!
Today I bring you a layout that I created last week for a quick game of “scraplifting” on the Mind The Scrap facebook page.
So I went through all the previous layouts that had been posted and I was really drawn to a mixed media layout by Emma Clark (who is the co-owner of Mind the Scrap). I loved how clearly defined her ink sprays were (mine mixed a bit) and how bright and colourful it was.
I sprayed directly into my textured cardstock. I didn’t bother with gesso (I hate the thing) even knowing that I was going to be applying texture paste. There is a tiny bit of warping, but it is not really noticeable, and you won’t see it when it’s on the page protector anyway. (Plus, gesso wouldn’t stop the warping anyway, it would just make the base harder)
So here is my scraplift!
And a couple of close ups:
