UK Scrap Addict Challenge – June – Rainbow glitter fun!

Hello, I’m loving the new UK Scrap Addicts blog and they have a Facebook page. This month they have 2 mood boards to use as an inspiration this month and I chose the cut rainbow theme and loved the watercolour zebra.

I’ve seen Amy Tangerine doing the watercolour and straw technique and wanted to add it to my page – if you haven’t seen it its basically watercolour blob, get a straw and blow the paint in all directions. It’s so fun and easy!

So I created a rainbow background with that technique and added rainbow glitter to look like it was escaping under the photo – i used a 3×3 black and white photo to contrast with all the colour in the background

The hello script lettering made me use the cherish thicker with added sparkly for fun and layered the photo with some small pieces from my scrap basket. I put the photo up on foam pads to create dimension and added a wood veneer for the date.

Finally I pulled up the bottom corner for a space for journalling and added a piece of paper from Shimelle’s Little by Little,

October stick it down challenge

Hello!

A very last minute challenge that I started last night from the October single page challenge on Stick it down blog using this fab sketch below

I took my little boy to a local farm for some pumpkin and halloween fun last week. He is only 2 and was super brave doing some scary challenges in the dark

I started with some smooth white card stock and drew out a template of two pumpkins for the circular elements. I then stitched the designs and coloured in the pumpkins with watercolours.

I matted the photos with some autumnal orange, red and brown and included some textured string and a yellow frame cut into two from freckled fawn.

I finished off the page with some vellum and acetate embellishments from heidi swapp, colorshine mist in gold and red and some orange enamel dots. I stamped the title with a kelly purkey stamp and coloured it in with squeezed lemonade distress inks.

 

Thanks for reading, I really loved trying out hand sewing on a page and creating this layout.
