I'm back and I'm scrapping!

Hello! I'm so excited to be back on my blog and scrapping again. For those of you that don't know, I've been away travelling for a while. I did manage to get a bit of scrapping done while I was away but it's soooooo good to be back in my scrap room again. Ah, the luxury of having all those goodies to scrap with!

I decided to start with an entry for Skrapky-wyzwaniowo, where the challenge was to use hexagons and I used the sketch from Stuck! Sketches.

I loved the sapphire, emerald and gold colours in the amazing mosaics I saw in Italy so I used these colours on my page and set them against a dark background to accent the richness of them. I thought the hexagons worked perfectly with the mosaics theme.

The create my hexagons, I first stamped hexagons onto cardstock then embossed them with white embossing powder. I then added Tinby Design Colour Crush and sprayed with water to create that gorgeous blending of colour. I cut out the shapes and added them around my photos and scattered them across the page.

To take the hexagon theme further, I also made some out of wire. I also wrapped wire around some gold corners that I made out of chipboard.

I wrapped wire around all my chipboard pieces which gave the page a great textural feel.

I cut the title from the same home-made hexagon paper and outlined the letters in gold.

There's not much time left if you want to join in these challenges!

Take a Walk with More Than Words

Helloooo! Welcome back to my blog.

It's Mini Challenge  time again at More Than Words. The word to use on your card, tag or ATC is 'Walk'. I chose to take a Walk on the Wild Side with my ATC!

I challenged myself to use up things from my scraps drawer. The background cardstock, the pinwheel and the die-cuts all came from there. I love using up old stash!

Here's the challenge board. I hope you can join us this month!

You can find more details on the challenge here.

Happy scrappin'!

Welcome back! The new challenge is up at More Than Words and it's a great one! The challenge is to be inspired by the word 'Outdoors' and to use Woodgrain in your layout, canvas or art journal page.

I have many photos taken Outdoors but this one was so funny I just had to use it. I was walking Outdoors when I saw this cat who was sitting on a balcony Outdoors. The expression on its face was hysterical!

Here's what I made:

I used a Woodgrain PL card behind the photo and the grumpy cat is scowling out from behind a Woodgrain balustrade.

Are you going to join in the challenge this month? Here's the challenge board. You can find all the details here.

Happy scrappin'!
