Welcome back!

The new Mini Challenge word at More Than Words for July is "Look". Use this on a card, tag, ATC or postcard and add it to our Facebook page by the end of the month to be in the running for some very cool prizes. Be quick!

I made a postcard:

I found this quote online and thought it was awesome. There are lots of wings on the postcard - chippie and die-cut ones to match the quote. The stars also tie in with the quote. The silver and pale blue colour scheme is cool, however it was very difficult to photograph and the colours here are not exactly as they are in real life.

I hope you can join us for the challenge. You can find the details here.

Happy scrappin'!

Bollywood Time

Hullo there! Have you seen the July challenge at Kraft + yet? The challenge is to be inspired by their Bollywood moodboard. The board is full of hot pinks, purples, blues, greens and golds. I chose to use some of these bright colours and adapt them to suit the colours of a very different country!

I liked the combination of gold with the bright colours so I added gold to my project. And yes, that's a paintbrush! I thought it was fitting for a page about art.

The henna designs also made me think of stamping. My stamping ended up being nothing like the swirly henna designs on the challenge board but the inspiration was still there! I chose to use folk art-style stamps as that is what matched my layout.

I went crazy with the colours on the title and added cute folk art-style touches like the little houses.

Here's the challenge board:

You can choose to be inspired by anything from the board - the colours, the eyes, the henna tattoos, the bling or whatever takes your fancy. I hope you can join us! You can find more about the challenge here.

Happy scrappin'!

Rediscover Your Old Stash!

Welcome back! Ooohh, we've got a great challenge over at More Than Words this month. The challenge is to be inspired by the word "Discover" and to use up some "Old Stash" on your project. Using up Old Stash is something that nearly all of us need to do so I was keen to get stuck into this one.

I raided my, ahem, "extensive" supplies and came up with this:

Absolutely everything on this page is old and some is positively ancient! Remember how we'd sometimes get scrapping papers in magazines? I used some of those here. I don't think I've ever used these papers before. I must say, I rather like them! The alphas are similarly ancient, but by mixing the fonts, and with creative use of colours, I think I created a more modern look with them.

Old stamps and chippies jazzed up with stitching and colour.

Another old stamp given a modern look by fading out the stamping.

The yellow tab is actually the top of some old packaging. I like the funky see-through effect.

That was fun! I hope you can delve into your Old Stash this month and join us!
