SUYS - Oct

Here is my very first entry for Show us your stuff. This was the 2nd challenge this month and required you to use: handmade items, circles, misting and flowers.
I have added the circles by misting over some scrapware chipboard for the background. Then I've used prima flowers with an Ah Scrap fan flower and a Ah Scrap fabric button.

I enjoyed this challenge!

White with 1 - October

Here is my entry for this months White with 1 challenge.
October requires you to use: white + black + paint/misting.
And I thought being October, why not use this combination to suit a Halloween style layout! Everyone else seems to be doing the 'pretty' style, but I wanted something different. I've had this picture of my daughter for a while and this was a perfect opportunity to scrap it.

I have used some Graphic 45 papers and also some MME. I cut the flocked crow on the candlestick out from the MME paper and watered down some black paint and sprayed it over a doily that I had for the background. I really really love how this all turned out and I love my 'eerie' style page!
The journalling around the outside of the page reads:
'After having your face painted with a black mask to go with your black angel costume, you washed it off to reveal this great mess! I just loved the smudged eerie look of it, 2009'

(sorry for the curled top corner, it warped slightly when spraying the background)

Black with 2 - October

I have been busy creating pages for some challenges this weekend. Here is my entry for this months Black with 2 challenge. It requires you to use:
black + baby pink + aqua.
So I decided to use a bit of paint on this one (among other things). And it has taken me all day to finish as I've had to wait for all the elements to dry!!

And here is a close-up of the corner using some crushed shells, muslin, Ah Scrap flag and bottlecap and chipboard hearts.

It took quite some time to get the dimensional magic and paint to dry and it has slightly warped the cardstock (so please excuse if the photo is not quite right)

Scrap the boys - October

This is my very first attempt at the Scrap the Boys challenge. I have always been a regular 'watcher' but have either not had the time or not had the supplies. This month I thought suited me really well.

It required you to scrap 'boys' and use a handmade item. PERFECT!. So I have used a new pinwheel from AH Scrap and also a felt flower.

Great timing as Ah Scrap is having its first release next week on the 12th October.

The papers I have used are graphic 45, and Stampin Up. I have misted the background and let some ink dribble at the top.
