Pulan - Amity Point by Tracey Thorne

I thought I would share my process of one of my recent layouts from the Australia Day Cyber Crop - it was Challenge 2 Dreamtime. I love how this process came together and how it complimented the photo.

Challenge 2 - Dreamtime

I started this 12x12 layout with a piece of white cardstock and to it I added Dina Wakley Acrylic paint in Cheddar - whilst still wet I added AAll & Create stencil #63 and rubbed back the paint to leave a resist pattern. 


I prepared my seasscape embellishments by stamping with the AALL & Create stamp sets #390 & #386 on some tissue using permanent black ink.


I then added a strip of Dina Wakley acrylic paint Marine and to that I used AALL & Create stencil #39 to take a way some of the colour . 

Once dried I used my white pen to draw the circles in and make them pop. I stitched a double black border around the outer edge of the orange paint and to that I have added small dots in a maroon paint. I have added some black marks stamping by using the AALL & Create stamp set #404.
I have also added my pre-stamped sea stamps. These were adhered to the page using Liquitex Matte Gel.


I have backed my photo with a piece of HS Honey & Spice cardstock and a Hambly Acetate sheet. A couple more Heidi Swapp embellishment tags were added under also. I have used some White word stickers also. The title was created using two ranges of Thickers and the larger of the two was layered with some muslin.

I hope you have gathered a little insight into how this came together. I believe the photo has really helped tie it all together with the amazing sunset.

thanks for popping in and having a look

Cybercrop Challenges - With Karyn Schultz!

 Hi Scrapping Clearly Lovelies!

It's Karyn here and today I have a mini tag album page that I created for the Australia Day Cybercrop using lots of fun products available at Scrapping Clearly
 I used the Heidi Swapp mini tag album for this project. This album has lots of fun tags and pockets to use.

 The first challenge was "What's your state". South Australia had red, blue and yellow as the colours. I changed this up a bit and used DWM acrylic paints in Sedona, Marine and Gilt to paint a Heidi Swapp frame embellishment.

 I then used a sharpie to colour some Heidi Swapp ghost alphas.
I wanted to do some gel printing so I used a small round Gel Press and painted (with my fingers) DWM acrylic paints in Sedona, Marine and Gilt. I did a facebook live on the day showing how I did the Gel Printing and a flip through of my mini album, you can see that here.

 Then I applied the gel press to one of the tags in the mini album. I also did more of this on smooth lightweight white cardstock.
 Here is the first of my finished pages/tags for the first challenge. I love how it turned out. I also added stamping and stencilling, and cut out some shapes from old book paper. Lastly I added splatters of DWM gloss sprays in Marine and Gilt.
 The mini tag album had blue/grey colours, so I also did some gel printing to coordinate using DWM acrylic paints in white, peacock, turquoise, and marine with pops of magenta, lemon and lime.
 How cool are all these prints! I also used a small square Gel Press as well as the small circle.
 These next pages/tags are for Challenge 2 "Dreamtime" where I used lots of dot inspired stamps and stencils.
 Challenge 3 "Bucket List"
 Challenge 4 "My Backyard" 
  Challenge 5 "My Favourite Place"

 Challenge 6 "My Hometown"

I hope you were able to find time to create for the Cybercrop, I had a lot of fun creating in this mini tag album.

 Thanks so much for stopping by!

Dancing Queen by Tracey B


Hi everyone.   

Happy Tuesday and what a great day to get your craft on!

I'm still being inspired by this month's mood board and am starting with a page that I used to mop up some excess paint from the last layout.

Here's a sneak peek. 


I started by ripping up some Art by Marlene collage paper and sticking it down just with a glue stick.   I then added a couple of swipes of gesso with a credit card to blend the edges a bit. 

I then fussy cut some Art by Marlene rice paper and stuck it down, again with a glue stick.   (Normally I would use a matt medium but I had run out and the glue stick worked just fine.)


I added a little background stamping and then a Posca pen to draw around some of the stencil shapes.

I added some Tim Holtz snarky quotes and some stabilo pencil we with an aqua brush around my title.

Here is the finished layout

Products I've used include

Art Anthology Dimensional paint - 
Scrap FX transparencies


Looking forward to seeing all your gorgeous creations during the Australia Day crop.

cheers and happy scrapping

1 Stamp 4 Colours Art Journal plus Video with Emma.

Emma with you all today to share a very quick and colourful Art Journal page. 

I took one of the sheets out of my Art by Marlene journal and prepped it with some clear Gesso. For the colour on the page, I added a little water to create a watercolour effect. Choosing to use some IZINK dye sprays to now add colour. The first colour I used was sea spray, second was Sunflower which also helped create a little green colour and lastly Antique Pearl to create a shimmer.

Just a couple of loose circles was the start to the composition. You can see it all come to life in the video linked at the bottom of this post.

Next came the stamp. Using the AALL & CREATE #323 Navigate Home set, I went for the toucan & wheel stamp. The great thing about these stamps is they have numbers and words, so you can use them in all sorts of ways. To add one more colour to the mix, my 4th colour was made with an orange stamp pad that I had in my stash. This just tied it all together. And made sure it only grabbed 'pops' of the stamp including the numbers. I did the same with some yellow.

Then with the same stamp I stamped it on a sheet of white cardstock. Coloured it in with some markers and fussy cut it out. This becomes the dimensional layer on the page. Using a fine tipped pen I loosely scribbled around the circles and the border.

Finally a couple of Tim Holtz stickers and a little more flicking of the sea spray dye and this little project was now all complete.

Enjoy the process Video..

I hope you get some crafting time this lovely Sunday and I will see you all again soon.
