Challenge Happiness

It took me a while to warm into my scrappiness this last month,
there were quite a few pages that will not see the light of day but
will stay forever in my albums as memories scrapped and not 
particularly attractively either.

On the upside all the warm-up scrapping worked a treat and I played with more challenges than I have in a long, long time. 'Twas fun!
AND.... being the last day of the month I am going to post all that are left
in one fell swoop, so get ready! 

The KIU challenge was to "create a layout using a different style than
you normally create". I went with a layered style with no mist, so NOT me!
I used up lots of leftover bits and pieces from recent kits I have been playing with.


Next up is One Little Word, which for July was 'Fierce'.
Back to my comfort zone, mists, washi, and Dymo :-)


And then there was Scrapmatts.
The challenge here was to use 2 different paints on your chippies.
I painted them all black and after masking with gyprock tape
(same as Magic Mesh), I stippled parts with yellow paint.
With, of course, more mist and washi. Ha.


I teamed it with the awesome Glitz range 'Color Me Happy'


And finally a page for Punky Scraps using this inspiration board


With lots of yellow and green....

So that's it.
I feel purged and yet full of creativity.
A perfect way to start a new month.

Thanks for stopping in.
