Scrapbooking Memories Masters winning submission

I am still gob-smacked about being chosen to be a Scrapbooking Memories Master this year. I have seen some of the unsuccessful subs and know a few amazing artists who also subbed and so I feel humbled and privileged to have been selected. Here today to show you my entry.

Challenge 1 - Use a 5x7 portrait that engages the viewer.
I used a lot of old rub-ons to make a background for the photo. Messy mists and some stamping with bubble wrap, a bit of punchinella from Gauche Alchemy (shop to re-open soon), and some Dymo.

Challenge 2 - Use a non conventional scrapbooking item
I love briefs like this that really get you thinking outside the box. I used a playing card, some gyprock (drywall) tape, and a piece of old 35mm film which I embossed and inked. The background was done using a piece of basket-weave handmade paper as a stamp with black paint. A bit of colour added with some card scraps and spray inks, Hazel & Ruby tape, Prima wood, Heidi Swapp acrylic letters, and some brads and Dymo

Challenge 3 - Focus on Journalling
I love telling stories on my pages too, even if sometimes I have to hide them. This was another opportunity to use my old typewriter (love!), I had to trim the page to fit it through but the join is hardly noticeable. Again a misty background using a heart stencil and spray inks, a gorgeous WoW leaf frame (painted and stamped), Prima flowers painted with Tattered Angels Glimmer Glaze, Kaisercraft rhinestone flourishes, Dymo, and old chippy numbers coloured up.

Challenge 4 - Art Journal cover
This was messy and fun. I dug into my Gauche Alchemy stash of vintage book pages and fabric and used similar colours to challenge 1 because I had them out at the time. The wood letters are from Pink Paislee.

And that's it.
It was fun and obviously worth it, although I must admit to feeling completely overwhelmed by the huge amount of prizes so stay tuned this year
for a couple of giveaways.

Thanks so much for coming by
