Birthday Time

It was my #1 son's birthday a couple of days ago and I am way behind with birthday pages so this mood board from Scrap Around The World was the best excuse to catch up on at least one.

I went with the red, yellow, teal colour scheme and added touches of gold

Thanks so much for coming by

Kaisercraft Mask

Kylie at Shop & Crop asked me to have a play with this stencil, what a gem! I love Kaisercraft stencils because they are nice and thick, great with texture paste and paints alike. Easy to clean and very sturdy and they come in such great designs.

I started off with a piece of white card which I laid over the misted stencil. After cleaning the stencil I placed it over the original mist mark and painted (with a make-up sponge and some Antique Bronze Distress Paint) through the pattern.
With such an eye-catching background my page needed little else and since I have scrapped this photo before no journalling was required. 

The other ladies on the team will be playing with stencils too, you can check out all the action on the Shop & Crop FB page.

Grungey, Messy

This is the brief for May at Scrap the Boys.... right up my alley!
So here is the page I did

I've used black Dylusions ink spray (and a dirty mat) for the background, a shipping tag with a pattern from a 6 x 6 TCW stencil (TCW450s) and a lime green pigment inkpad, scraps of patterned papers and some other stuff from this kit. I used a sweet die-cut from Flutterby Designs for the title and some chippy stars I've had in my stash for years, no idea who makes these ones.

Thanks for looking

New Echo Park

The lovely Kylie from Shop & Crop sent me some brand new Echo Park 'My Life' papers and cardstock stickers to play with. I love this mini-theme collection as it's so versatile with brights and greys, and adaptable to almost any subject.

I created these 2 pages in a few hours on Sunday afternoon
when the house was quiet.
I scraped and dribbled some Kaisercraft black paint on the background, layered up the Echo Park and added some really old Heidi Swapp alpha stickers for the title. Journalling as usual with Dymo. 

And for this one I wanted a splashy and bright background so I went with Ranger Dylusions and Distress Stains, I used mostly stickers from the Echo Park collection and some Green Tara twine.
