Welcome Aboard



      

Welcome Aboard

welcome

Hello and welcome to July and my project Welcome Aboard.


Today I would like to share with you my take on the CSI Challenge Case 258. for July.
Submissions need to be submitted by July 31st.

 CSI Challenge Case 258
My inspiration for this challenge was this clock I found on one of my shopping trips to the Salvo's.

welcome
 I was inspired by the Scene. 
This clock reminded me of our recent cruise.
The picture was taken just before boarding the ship.



           

I decided to turn it into a photo frame.
The photo matt is actually a sick bag from my scavenger hunt for our scrapbook challenges.
I have used the opening for my tags to sit in.


It is attached in place with the nautical paperclips, so that it can be removed and then used as a clock.
All the pieces have been inked with pinecone ink from Versamark.

    
   
    


All the chipboard used is available from Scrapmatts.
I have also used some twine, shells and starfish (old hanger) and some art stones.
To hold all the pieces in place I used 3D Gloss Gel Medium.

Hello Adventure - Nautical Layouts Scrapmatts DT May 2018

Hello Adventure
Nautical Layouts


Good Morning and welcome to May
Today I will be sharing with you my Hello Adventure Nautical layouts I have completed from my recent trip to the South Pacific with Melissa Kennedy.


    

This layout was inspired by a Bingo challenge that Melissa handed out, as well as a scavenger hunt challenge.
Items collected are shells from the beach, embellishment bought onboard (chipboard) and picture of the ship (in the background of the photo).

I have used the beautiful  BEACH SHACK COLLECTION  from Kaisercraft.


Adventure
Beach Shack Collection - Kaisercraft



I have used the CB1221 Nautical Designs from Scrapmatts. 
I have also used the very new - CT008 - Hello Adventure Word 


I decided not to colour the chipboard, as I like the look of the natural colour with this layout.
This is the chipboard used on the layout. CB1221.


**********************



This layout is the second one I have created using the left overs from the Beach Shack Collection.

This layout is for our scavenger hunt challenge.
On this one the items used are the shore collection guide, shells found on the beach and a doily.




Chipboard used on this layout again is the CB1221 and the word is a new product CT009.

If you wish to purchase any of this chippy head over to the website.

Live Laugh Love - Scrapmatts DT March 2018


Live Laugh Love

Hello All
I have been MIA recently due to family matters. 
I am now back and catching up on my blogs, so here is a little something that I created for Scrapmatts.

I am sharing with you today an art journal page that I created using Scrapmatts stencils and chipboard.

As I have been looking after my mother in law (dementia) the last month, as my father in law has had a stroke and is still recovering in hospital, I have been very time poor.

So while I have been staying at Mum's house, I wanted to keep being creative. This is where I find that having my art journal allows me to do this. Keeps those creative juices flowing. 
Scrapmatts products make it even easier to create as they have so many stencils available.

Here is my finished page. 


Craft on the Run

To create the base I used Distress Oxides and water to create a watercolour effect.
Then I used the ST5046 Lattice stencil,and ST9012 Patterns stencil with embossing paste to create texture. 



craft on the run




 I inked through the ST9027 Damask stencil with Wilted Violet Distress Ink to create the damask shape.



I have used the CB4050 Assorted Words for the quote. 

 I have left them raw and just added a black line with my fine liner pen around the outside of the letters and the page.

To finish off the page I have splattered some ink using Kaisercraft Mists.

Sketch Challenge - February 2018 - Mystical Scrapbooks

Sketch Challenge

Hello and Welcome to my challenge for February.

Donna has created this wonderful sketch for you to use and interpret how you like. Flip it, turn it or simply follow the design as you see it but use it as your inspiration. 


Here is my take on the sketch



I have used the gorgeous Echo Park papers from their Under the Sea Collection
which can be found in the Mystical Scrapbooks Store


 To add some texture I have used some stone pebbles.
Anchor charm is from my stash.


 I have handwritten my journalling with a black liner pen.
To create the bubbles, I used a stencil from Dusty Attic and transparent texture paste from Ranger.
While they were still wet, I sprinkled some of the stone pebbles over them.
To finish the page off I outlined the edge of the page with black liner pen and used Dylusional Spray "Squeezed Orange" and the same bubble stencil. 


Products used






Thanks for stopping by and I look forward to seeing your takes on the sketch challenge.

Til next time

Remember to always
