Waiting for the Sun

 Hello again!

It's winter here now and the days have been cold, windy and ... well ... wintry! We're back in lockdown too and I'm really missing those lovely walks we did during the first lockdown when the weather was good.

With this in mind, I was inspired to create this tag for the new More Than Words Mini Challenge. The word to use on your card, tag, ATC or postcard is SUN.

I hope you can join us this month! You can find the info here.

Happy scrappin'!

Chill Out!

Welcome back!

The new challenge this month at More Than Words is to be inspired by the Chill Out theme and to use a super-cool sketch from Heikes Augenblick.

I took the Chill Out theme literally and scrapped about how we are spending this winter at home due to covid-19 restrictions.

Rather than go with snowy, cold colours, I chose to use warm, rich colours to add that snuggle-up feeling to the page.

I already had that large "2-gether" title but I wanted to add the Chill Out words. My eyes fell on the sketch I had printed to follow for this challenge. The More Than Words challenge board had a perfect copy of the title already made. I just cut it out and added it to my page!

I know butterflies aren't usually relevant for a page about winter but they looked good and the rich colours were perfect ;)

I loved using Heike's fun sketch. I especially loved the stitching part. No surprises there - I love messy stitching on my pages!

Will you join us this month? Here's the challenge board and the sketch. You can find more details here.

Happy scrappin'!

Feeling Krafty

Hello! I'm a bit excited about the start of August - it's the beginning of the end of winter! Woohoo!

Of course, a new month means a new challenge at Kraft+. The challenge this month is to use orange, teal and copper! Now that's an interesting combo! I originally had all sorts of exotic ideas around using geli prints in those colours but I somehow got sidetracked when I found a scrap of gorgeous teal paper. I then realised I had no full sheets of kraft left which is a bit of a problem in a kraft-based challenge! I solved the problem by using lots of patterned kraft paper around my photo.

I painted my title with copper paint.

 I also used a very cool copper-coloured fibre that I've been hoarding for years.

The bar code is an airport baggage code from the trip.

I love creating my journalling with random words taken from various sources.

I hope you can give this challenge a go! You can find all the details here.

Happy scrappin'!
