Amy here with you today, sharing a fun boyish page, using awesome products from the store. I just had to scrap this photo, taken of my youngest, Sam.

At the time of the photo, he was tired after an eventful but stressful morning swimming competition. Our Samuel is known for getting into these crazy but quirky moods when he is super tired. We are all only human - right?!

My background paper is from the 'Boys Fort' range from a Pink Fresh Studio collection.

For the background, I roughly swiped some white gesso on to break up the grey (so much fun!). The gesso also acts as a barrier for the wet media I was to use next - from the store: Dina Wakely Media - Heavy Acrylic in Cheddar and Lemon; Colour Blast Colour Spray in Rainforest.
I have also sprayed some gauze with the luscious Rainforest spray - to add to the aquatic theme. 

Then, as pictured here, from the store, I added the following products before I mounted my photo: enamel dots from My Minds Eye; paper tissue from Dina Wakley Media, a 'date insert' from We R Memory Keepers 'Typecast'; quotes from Tim Holtz Small Talk; and wood veneer embellishment from Studio Calico Wanderlust.
 The chipboard title 'Whoa' and film strip were from my stash.

I have used a handmade heart and coloured wire overlapping it, from Charms Creations - the wire is from D-lish Scraps. 

I am pleased with how this page came together - and really enjoyed scrapping this one!

Thank you for popping by!

See you next month.

Live your Life - with Emma

Welcome to Tuesday everyone!! 
Today I’m sharing a layout with you that is loosely based on the mood board for this month. 
The image I found for this page I feel is almost a portrait of me, With our cat Augustus. 
And I’ve used plenty of ScrappingClearly products. 

I started with applying clear Gesso over the base sheet and then once dry started to apply my stamps.
I started with a Lavinia stamp and used the small stones along the base of where I was going to apply the flowers.
Then wanting to use paper flowers and fabric flowers I stamped on smooth white card some flowers off the Jane Davenport building a Bouquet stamp set. I then painted them with a couple of Distress Oxides. I Chose to use Tattered Rose and Antique linen, to match the mood board a little.

Then I added with a paint brush some Lindy's sprays to drip down the page. I chose Moon Shadow Bucket o Blood and Magnolia Magenta.

Once dry I started to layer my Inkadinkado cling stamps, I used the fossil leaves.

I used a little of Art alchemy wax in Rose Gold on my finger and rubbed over the texture paste I had put down earlier.

Once all the flowers and image were adhered down I added some glass pebbles and Tim Holtz small talk stickers to relate to me and life. finally I flicked a little Liquidex Titanium White over the page.

That's all from me today. I hope you enjoyed this page I created for you.
I hope you get a chance to play along too.
I'll catch you all next week.

My home is my Castle

Hi Guys and Gilrs I have signed up for creative jumpstart to give my mojo a kick into gear.

I cannot show the class examples here but I can show you where their inspiration took me.

One of the videos used text paper for inserts and I loved that idea. I went will many houses as I have lived in quite a lot. Hubby was in the Army for 15years full time. The first house symbolises my childhood home and the last one where we are now.

Also one of the amazing artist used words to convey her sense of home so I have used that idea here with this project too and her use of brighter colours.

Products used include

Stabilo Aquarellable black pencil

Asst'd stencils

Metal charms and findings.

Thanks for looking.

Into the Unknown

How great are the moodboard colours... I am so in love with them that I have created another layout with them ... this one is called Cool Kids... 

I have such a fabulous collection of inks & it's great to use them on a flat mat and just soak them up - not knowing what you are creating.... you know the unknown is the best part... it opens up your creativity... and nine times out of ten it will be the most amazing piece of art you will have created... just give it a go...  I have sprayed Dylusions Ink sprays in Pomegranate seedVanilla custard Squeezed orange onto the Mat and then placed my 12x 12 cardstock onto it to create the background. It doesn't look much .... but check out the next  pic.... 


I then chose the Dina Wakley Wheels stencil and used modelling paste to help add dimension. 

Next were all my layers.... so after the texture paste I added my stamping.... I have added some Viva Las Vegas stamps and  some Inkadinkadoo Branches stamps  as well as some mesh and Heidi Swapp washi tape. I loved the Heidi Swapp papers and they worked perfectly with this layout so I added a little of the Heidiswapp 12x12 – September Skies – beautiful bouquet paper to help with softening the photo.   

all that was needed was my photo and a little border work with my Artline black pen and a few other little embellishments such as my  typewriter journalling and some Teresa Collins brads & Heidi Swapp arrows...oh and the amazing Pinkfresh escape ordinary leatherette alpha - I am loving the look of these on a layout ... divine


and so that is it... amazing colors ... it just makes my heart happy 

I hope you have a creative and fun fillled weekend... and don't forget to get messy.

Summery 'Handmade Cards'

Hi All! I hope you are enjoying your summer!

We are currently over on the west coast of Australia, having a beach break. The Western Australian coast is just stunning, with its white sand and dry heat.

I am sharing with you today some summery cards. These cards were very simple to create using the fantastic Tim Holtz Distress Oxide ink pads from the store. 

I have layered cards using white,black, teal and yellow cardstock from my stash.

For these two cards pictured, I blended Distress Oxide in both 'Fossilized Amber' and 'Spiced Marmalade' on heavy cardstock. 

If you have watercolour paper, you could use this too. To add texture - on the hexagon-shaped one - I lightly sponged a Kaisercraft Honeycomb clear stamp with water then stamped over the blended area. After I heat-dried this, I scribbled the border using a Posca pen in black from the store. 

The sentiment here was heat-embossed with white powder from my stash.

For the second card, I repeated the same process, except I stamped the large circle using a 49 and Market stamp set. 

After I assembled these cards - I placed them side by side and splattered both backgrounds using Colour Blast 'Roadbase' Colour Spray

I have used enamel dots from the Cocoa Vanilla 'You Rock' collection.

For the cards pictured here, I have used the same technique again, with blending and water-stamping, with the stamps from Kaisercraft and 49 and Market.

However, I have used different colours from the store: This time, I used Distress Oxide in Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade, Twisted Citron, Fossilized Amber and Peacock Feathers - the latter to bring out the blue in the border. 

For the sentiment - for both of these cards - I have heat-embossed using white powder from my stash and Versamark from the store.  

Once again, I splattered Colour Blast 'Roadbase' over the back grounds of this pair of cards. I also used sequins to add some more 'bling' to complete the cards.

Thank you for popping by!

Enjoy your day.

Amy 😊

You are Darling - with Emma

Happy Tuesday SC friends.
Emma here with you today to share my first Scrapping Clearly post for the 2019 year.
Todays inspo was driven from this months gorgeous mood board.

I was inspired by the colour palette but also the 20's Vintage style, hence my photo.
For this layout I started by giving my base sheet a coat of Clear gesso.

Once dry I applied my colours, I used 3 Distress Oxides in Scattered straw, Fossilised Amber and Victorian Velvet for that soft pink effect.
I then proceeded to stamp  using 1 from a Jane Davenport clear stamp and 1 from Finnabair cling stamp collection.

Within my layers I cut up the flowers from one of the Heidi Swapp die cut paper sheet set, and painted them with a beautiful shimmer ink in the aubergine colour. once they were dry I them Gold Embossed a script stamp over the top of them to add a bit of glam.

The large tag I used is from Heidi swapp decorative tags pack which I didn't touch except distress the edges.

Oh how I love tags!!!

In amongst more of the layers are a few Hawthorne ephemera pieces also from Heidi swapp. Including the gorgeous title piece (as seen below), and a metal flower from Finnabairs mechanicals collection, that I rubbed a little Prima wax over, I used Rose Gold colour for this (smells soooo good).

I then added a couple of quote stickers from Tim Holtz small Talk pad, and a flick of Art Alchemy acyclic in Soft Satin to bring it all together.

I love the glam/vintage vibe I get from this months board and I hope I managed to capture that in my artwork.

I will catch you all next week for more inspo and I Hope you get the chance to join in this month also.

Plus we have a Save the Date you must check out for our CyberCrop….YAY!!

Till next time, Em xx
