Just Breathe

Morning All,

We all need a hobby or activity that just lifts us, my brothers is golf. I adore this photo of him. He is not a calm personality, he is loud. But some how this is just him.

I have used 49 and market papers and No. 3 laser cut frame and shape set.
I have also added some quick cure clay and resin prima moulds into the layers.
I coloured them with metallique rustic brown and then brass hardware. 
Finished with a touch of silver wax over the moulded pieces.

Thanks for looking

Not what I expected...

I cannot tell or show you how much I love these colours -- they are everything summer... I had a few extra pics from when we had Akari stay with us as an  exchange student from Japan - what an amazing experience - our children loved every moment of it and so did we... the language was a hurdle but we all got there in the end. We took her to Byron Bay for a day and she loved it - the wide open spaces (she got travel sickness) and the ocean...although I know our daughter was in heaven at this point too - she has a gypsy soul and to this day would move there in a heartbeat... I love how these colours helped gather the feeling and moment in this pic... joyful and yet still searching... 

Truth be told I struggled with this layout - take a look at my procrastination below -- I LIKE TO KEEP IT REAL - so here goes - this layout turned out so differently than what I expected, but it has turned out to be 'what I wanted' and at the end of the day that is really all that matters and I hope you all enjoy it and get to grab a little inspiration along the way - whether it be colours - photo placement - journalling - titles- paper combinations or layering.  I envisaged using three photos - this kind of changed within the hour of creating. ... 

Then I used white cardstock that I had added spray to from last weeks play.... I added some Dina Wakley tissue and some Dina Wakley stamps using Distress Ink in tattered rose -- this is such a pretty colour ... I shall be using this a lot more I do think 😉

At the end of this play I was not in love -- so I coated the whole page in white gesso & then added this awesome stencil and some Dina Wakley paint in turquoise - very much in love now -- then the blue ink started to bleed through on that silly drip section - that was the end of it for me -- REMEMBER I LIKE TO KEEP THINGS REAL - THAT IS WHY YOU ARE HEARING ABOUT THIS MONUMENTAL YUCK MOMENT - the stuff under this lookes amazing ... but in time it dried out & the ink stain at the bottom just intensified so it was time for a start fresh....

Fresh meant -- Cocoa Vanilla cardstock as my base, and a whole lot of love from the Teresa Collins range to layer with including Something wonderful ephemera and file folders

I added some awesome titles using the Pink Fresh alpha - Escape the Ordinary & Heidi Swapp chipboard stickers - word love.

I threw in a healthy dose of our very own Aussie creator Kinder Kreations chipboard (camera & arrows) and used some Dina Wakley paint to make them all pretty.  I have also used some Cocoa Vanilla acetate embellies, buttons & a super cute tassel. 

I hope you have enjoyed my journey as much as I have this weekend... totally epic! 

till next week - have a great weekend xx

Family Time - With Karyn Schultz!

Hi Scrapping Clearly Lovelies!!

It's Karyn here, and today I have a scrapbook page to share with you made using various products available in the Scrapping Clearly Store

For my base I've used a sheet of white cardstock and painted with using Decadent Pies Prima Watercolor Confections (pink, green, brown). Once this was dry I added splatters of each colour as well. 

I also coloured 2 pieces of muslin with the Decadent Pies Prima Watercolor Confections (pink and green).  

I started decorating my page with strips of paper from the Heidi Swapp Honey & Spice 12x12 paper pad on both the left and right sides. How gorgeous is this paper collection - the colours are divine and there are so many gorgeous patterns!

Around my photo I added some Scrap FX chipboard, metal embellishments, 
Heidi Swapp Emerson Lane Ephemera, and the pink coloured muslin.  

In the top right of the page I also added more Scrap FX chipboard, Heidi Swapp Emerson Lane Ephemera, a diecut, clear art pebbes, metal embellishments, and the pink coloured muslin.

I love how this chipboard looks a bit "military like" - it suits my ANZAC day photo!  

Thanks so much for stopping by
