K+ Challenge

I had some scrapping time yesterday where I actually scrapped! Yep, it kinda surprised me too. Inspiration and motivation has been scarce around here lately so cutting and pasting on a Sunday afternoon was a treat.
After a couple of warm-up pages I had a play with the September Kraft+
tri-hard challenge and came up with this....

This is the sketch, I mirrored it.

T'was fun.
Still time to have a go if you want.

Wonderful Gauche Inspiration

It's such an inspiring mood board at Gauche Alchemy this month, full of bright colours and sunshiney feelings with just a hint of snark. My project is up on the blog and it's a favourite, I love it so much, so head on over and check out the full page. Here is a sneaky peek...
I used some chippies from Words or Whatever and a background technique I learnt recently from the seriously fabulous Naomi Cox. If you want to get your hands on some cool vintage and retro art supplies for your pages check out the Gauche Alchemy shop here.

Special Investigator!

I was so chuffed recently to be asked to be a CSI Special Investigator as a result of this page I did back in July. My first page is up here along with a myriad of exceptional talent from around the world, so exciting! You should head on over, check out the awesomeness, and play along. 
This is my page 

From this inspiration board
I love that they give you journal prompts, I had been struggling to scrap these pics for my youngest boy because I just didn't know how to tie them together, this board made it so easy!

There are plenty of other boards both old and new so if you need a kick start head on over to their ning site or their Facebook page and have a look.

WoW, excited much!

Exciting new things are in the wind for me. I have snagged myself a spot on the Design Team for Words or Whatever, an Aussie company that makes chipboard and stencils. I will also be creating some of my own designs.... So excited!!
I got my first lot last weekend and had a play while I was on retreat with some of my girls out at Lake Keepit.

On this page I used the World Map stencil with some red mist, Lighthouse Flourish stencil with Inka Gold, and Boot Print stencil (designed by me and available soon, yay!!) with a black inkpad. Also from Wow, some Chicken Wire chippy and the Hit the Road chippy (also designed by me, this one needs work I think).

I feel a whole new world of creativity opening up and I'm stoked!
I hope you follow along with me and see where it goes.
