Scrapbooking from Scratch September Quote & Sketch Challenge

Hi everyone, this is just a quick post with a couple of challenge entries before the month ends tonight. Man can you believe that it is October in 15 hours sheesh I seriously don’t remember how this year has gone so fast but it has flown by.

Yesterday I posted a layout that I wanted to enter into the Scrapbooking From Scratch Sketch Challenge but alas I did not read the rules properly and I was supposed to do an exclusive layout for the challenge but I was naughty and combined the Jot Mood Board challenge with it so I have done a new layout with the same awesome sketch. Here is the sketch again and checkout all the September Challenges on the Scrapbooking from Scratch Blog here.

Here is my new take on the sketch titled Explore Pretty Beach.

tn_ExplorePrettyBeachByAmyPrior

The layout is featuring a gorgeous photo of my 2 girls recently as we were watching the millions of Soldier Crabs scurrying across the sand next to the warf. They are so fascinating to watch and the girls just love going there especially with the awesome park that is across the road.

tn_ExplorePrettyBeachByAmyPrior_closeup1

I have used the Crate Paper Pier Collection papers for this layout as well as some of the Ephemera Die Cuts Pack.

tn_ExplorePrettyBeachByAmyPrior_closeup2

The background has been masked with some Modelling Paste and a Crafters Workshop Template and I have finished it off by adding some Prima Marketing Enamel Dots.

Hi everyone! I am back today with the latest palette from the talented Lydell over at the Color Room. Have you liked their Facebook Page? Be sure to checkout their website here too for the full reveal and the rest of the Design Team inspiration posts…

The Palette…

158

…and here is my take on the palette. These colours were definately out of my comfort zone but I just love how this turned out.

Amy Prior #158

Of course some closeups…

IMG_3857

The background has been lightly sprayed with Heidi Swapp Gold Color Shine Spray over the A2Z Scraplets Broken Gate 12×12 Mask. Very subtly. I have then cut and distressed all my patterned paper pieces and mounted them onto Brown Cardstock and distressed.

IMG_3858

To decorate the A2Z Scraplets Chipboard Clock with Cogs, I have painted it with Brown Crackle Paint, allowd to dry, then sprayed with various Brown Shimmery Sprays and dried with my heat gun making sure lots of puddles of brown formed to create a more aged look.

IMG_3859

When the layout was complete, I decided to add some pearls and drops around the page randomly. I have also painted the edges of all the flower petals and the Sweet title with Heidi Swapp Gold Color Shine.

The Best Thing About Memories Is Making Them

Are you here for my June/July Giveaway? Click here for more info after you have read this post of course :)

Hi everyone! I hope you are all well, as I busily try to catch up on my Design Team Commitments after the chaos of moving house, I decided to have a quick play with the Scrapbooking From Scratch Quote Challenge this for June hosted by Charmane from Charms Creations.

The Quote is “The Best Thing About Memories Is Making Them”

tn_IMG_3236

I decided to use the fabulous Modern Romance Line Papers from Websters Pages and I have used the Clean and Simple sides for my backgrounds and then have fussy cut lots of fabulous flowers to use in my clusters.

tn_IMG_3237

In the bottom left corner, I have added some fussy cut flowers alongside a Charms Creation Lollipop, Prima Marketing Ingvild Blome Light Bulb and a fabulous Heidi Swapp Buzz Word.

tn_IMG_3238

I have used some American Crafts Thickers alongside some Prima Marketing ABC Stickers for creating my title.

tn_IMG_3239

The Background has some subtle masking using Texture Acrylic Paint and the Brocade 12×12 Crafters Workshop Template. I applied the paint with a natural sponge to get an interesting effect.

tn_IMG_3240

A Prima Marketing Resin Window, some Prima flowers alongside some Pink Paislee Artisan Elements and the layout was complete.

Overall I would have to say I am not a fan of this layout LOL. I am my own worst critic I know but I went way off track with my original plan and the page suffered.

Thanks so much for checking out my blog and don’t forget to leave me some love .

Until next time, happy scrapping!
