Scrapping4fun – Bounce

Hello friends!

Here is another layout I have made for the Scrapping4fun Design Team! This month’s challenge was to use a sketch… and I love sketches! The real challenge for me was the fact that the sample sketch that we were given was for a double page layout and I don’t really do double page layouts! So I had to use my imagination and “translate” the sketch into a single page layout. I think I did quite well! I’ll let you be the judge. Here’s my layout and the sketch!

Scrapping4fun October sketch

So, what do you think? As I wanted to use so many photos in such a “small” space, I really had to go minimal so as to not overload the layout. That’s why I kept the pattern papers away, pretty much, and stuck to solid colours.

And a couple of close ups:

Scrapbook layout – Pretty rainbow

Hi all!

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.

Scrapbook layout – Awesome tower

Hi all!

Today’s layout I created just on Monday for a mini challenge on the Mercy Tiara facebook group, with a Creative Scrappers sketch set by Moira 🙂

Here’s my layout and the sketch:

I used the You Rock collection by Cocoa Vanilla Studio. I am very pleased to say that I still have enough papers and embellishments for at least 4 or 5 layouts more! <3

Here are two more closeups:

Scrapbooking Layout – Let’s wander (youtube video)

Hello everyone!

I had a bit of time for a layout earlier, and since I was also home alone, I decided to make a video! The layout it’s based on the single page sketch for Stick it Down, and I had lots of fun making it!

I used papers from Shimelle’s first collection and other Shimelle embellishments from other collections and I am so happy with how it’s turned out! Here it is:

I had a tiny accident when splattering the black Heidi Shine, and I smeared a tiny bit in the circle embellishment, however I managed to clean it a bit. You can still see it, but not too noticeable.

And here are a couple of closeups:
