Howdy Folks, Lisa here with a Sunday Scrapping Clearly update.
Firstly, to all the Mumma's out there celebrating today.
Happy Mothers Day, to all the incredible mothers and mother substitutes. For those who don't have their mum here, those who want to be a mum but can not, for those who are about to become a mum, 
 May you all be showered with heart love, hugs and goodness from those you call your loves.

Today is day 99 of the #100dayproject, and as I count down another year of this challenge, I am happy to be one day away and have a plethora of new work under my creative belt.
This year I created all pieces of canvas board, to make available for interested folk to purchase the original piece. I'm so happy to say that at day 99, I have only 34 pieces remaining with me and I am so very grateful to those special folk who connected to each and every piece.

He is a wise man - by tracey thorne

 To tell the truth I have been in a bit of a rut of late - life has a lot going on - so I have had to dig deep and really hone in on what my happy is for when I create. I have dug this photo out of my archives (my phone pics from a couple of years ago) to create with this months amazing moodboard. This moodboard  is helping me find my way - it is so warm yet invigorating... if you are looking for something to spark your creative flow I urge you to give this one a crack - it has certainly helped me the last couple of weeks.

My favourite way to start a layout is with white cardstock then add a little something to that, this time I have added some Tim Holtz Distress stain in Dried Marigold & Ripe Persimmon... so in love with the depth of colour with these two together. 

I worked out placement for my photo and have added stitching in black cotton to help define the placement. I have also added a little washi tape using Dina Wakley.

Time for layers - I have added a little Hambly Acetate, Dina Wakley collage paper and some self created stitched tissue paper. I have stamped under the layers using Darkroom Door Abstract stamp and a Finnabair stamp.

Some added extras were - Kinder Kreations feather chipboard painted using Gesso and Ken Oliver Liquid Metals in Iron Oxide, black thread, stamped butterflies using a Prima stamp,  Lindy's gang magicals & a pre printed acetate quote. I love how the stamped Prima butterflies have turned out. I have created these using some pre-painted lindy's and then fussy cut for the project.

The title was chosen as part of a quote that is how my thoughts & feelings are at at this moment. I love putting honesty and feelings into my creativity.

I hope you have enjoyed my share this week - have yourself a fabulous creative week.

Happy with Belinda Spencer

 Hello Scrapping Clearly peeps!!

It's Belinda here today with my latest project inspired by the marvelous May moodboard and featuring fabulous product from the store.

How warm and bright are these colours? I love them.
To start my layout, I first wanted to use one of the NEW Colour Study Stencils from Vicki Boutin. I hate the straight edges showing when I spritz with colour sprays so I first masked off the edges with torn scrap paper.

After I used the stencil I then turned it over and 'printed' the design into a journal I keep on hand to use up excess inks etc. It gave a really nice image.

For the red ink spray, I made up my own concoction using some Candy Colour Blast Shimmer Dust and distilled water in a mini mister. I added about a pinch of shimmer dust and then topped up the bottle with the water and shook well.

I spritzed some of the colour over the top of the stencilled image and let it drip down the page. I flicked some of the colour over too. I added a little more stencilling at the top right too.

Next I added some more flicks of colour using Dylusions Squeezed Orange Ink Spray and Mint Green Heidi Swapp Colour Shine.

Next I added some stamping using Jet Black Ranger Archival Ink and a stamp from the NEW Vicki Boutin Colour Study Stamp Set.

I grabbed a scrap of the heavy weight Marshmallow cardstock and played with the other stencils in the Colour Study range and the same ink sprays. Once this piece was dry, I then stamped some images using the Colour Study stamp set again and the Jet Black ink. I fussy cut the images to use on the layout in the next step.

I cropped some patterned paper from the Colour Study 6x8 Paper Pad and created a paper stack including some doilies I had in my stash and the fussy cut flowers as well as a tag from the Tim Holtz Idea-ology Salvaged Tags set.

Finally I added my photo as well as the title, a Charm's Creations orange arrow and some fussy cut stars from the Vicki Boutin Let's Wander Stars patterned paper.


Here's a few close-ups.

I love this photo I snapped of my darling daughter when she used to let me take photos of her!!

Here's what I used:

COLOUR BLAST Shimmer Dust Candy
TIM HOLTZ Idea-ology Salvaged Tags

Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today. I do hope you find some time to play along with the moodboard this month.

Explore, by Amanda Hartmann

 Dear SC fans!

Welcome to May... and an epic mood board! I love these colour together - and I teamed up some Dina Wakley Acrylic paints to create the page.

Here are the links to the products I used in store:

Dina Wakley paints:

Used with: 

Finished with:

Inspired by this mood board:

Here is my page!

I gesso'd the white background.

I used a soft brush to rub the Dina acrylic paint (Sedona and Tangerine) through the stencil.

Added extra water to spread some colour and splatter around the stenciling.

I painted the back of the butterflies with the Dina acrylic paint (Turquoise), and also painted softly some edges with the same colour and added some splatters.

Finished with a sticker title and the art pebbles.

Here are some close ups.

Great mood board - join the challenge this month!

Thanks for looking!

seeing is believing by Tracey B

 Hi everyone and happy crafting Tuesday!

here's what I created, inspired by this month's moodboard.

I started with some Colour Blast Paste (Sienna) through a stencil. and then using the packaging technique, added some Color Bursts powder spritzed with a little water (Cadmium Scarlet & Yellow Ochre), dried it with my heat gun (so as not to get mud) and then , Lindy's Flat Fabio (Merci Beaucoup Mint) and Dina Wakley Gloss Spray (Ocean).

I added some Arts Inc collage eye stickers, fussy cut butterflies, muslin and ribbon and some Pink Paislee chipboard butterflies which I coloured with the left over colour still on my packaging.

Thanks for looking & have a great day

Make It Count with Emma Zappone

Em with you on the blog today.
 It's been a busy time for me of late and to add to it I have lost my crafty vibe, until now.........
So because I really just wanted to craft and get things on paper, I decided to go simple. 
Minimal mixed media and lots of stamping made for a quick layout.
I even filmed it coming together, which I hope you enjoy watching.😆

Using lots of stamps on my base sheet, creating a suitable backdrop for this awesome image I found on Pinterest. I started with an Aall & Create stamp - Gears & Elements and stamped it vertically across my page. Then to add to the grunge a little more I added a few of the stamps in the Stampers Anonymous - Glitch 1 set. 

At this stage there was no colour. Before I started the layout,  I had grabbed a piece of watercolour paper and with a couple of Scribble Sticks 'scribbled' and added water to it which eventually I created into the 2 tags seen behind the image. You can see me make these in the video. With the excess colour I flicked it to the background of my layout to add just a subtle hit of colour.

On the watercolour sheet I also stamped a few stars and the little bird from the Aall & Create - Wire birds set, ready to cut out and become my embellishments.
I really wanted another hit of colour through the stamping across the page, so using the chevron stamp from the Aall & Create - Take Flight set and Distress Oxide - Faded Jeans for the colour added it amongst the stamping layers. This complimented the pop of yellow/orange of the image.

Once I had fussy cut the bird and stars from the watercolour paper and stuck them down, I again added a small amount of colour to them. Using the 2 original scribble sticks from the start, I created a watercolour out of them and just dotted colour onto them. 
My final embellishments were a couple of metals, one a door knob and the other a faucet.
Finally a couple of quotes from the Tim Holtz - small talk stickers.

And that was this layout complete.

I stood back.....and felt relieved to create and happy with the final result.

I hope it has inspired you to create, and if you feel stuck just to try something simple and easy. There is no shame in that, just feel good about creating!

Enjoy my process video too and hope that it inspires too.

Happy crafting everyone.

Em xx
