Scrapbooking from Scratch with Jot Magazine

Howdy everybody!! I hope you are having a fabulous weekend wherever you are in the world. Today I wanted to come and share a quick layout that I have created based on the current Jot Magazine Mood Board Challenge which you can find on their website here, and Anita’s fabulous sketch challenge from Scrapbooking From Scratch which you can find all the information for right here.

Here is the Jot Magazine Mood Board that I have worked with…

…and here is Anita’s fabulous sketch from the Scrapbooking From Scratch Blog…

…and here is my take on these 2 fabulous challenges combined. I just adored these fabulous bright colours but man was I out of my comfort zone using them all together!

The title of my layout is “Strike a Pose”and I have used the Strike a Pose A2Z Scraplets Chipboard title painted with some Gelatos in an Ombre effect and then given a top coat of Glossy Accents. Enamel elements seem to be really in fashion in the scrapbooking world at the moment and the easiest way to create faux enamel is with paint or patterned paper and Glossy Accents.

The patterned papers I have used are various from Studio Calico Hey Day Collection and a few different My Minds Eye Collections.

The elements all over the page are from various brands also including Heidi Swapp Banners, Pink Paislee Artisan Stars, My Minds Eye Die Cuts & Stickers, BoBunny Stickers, Jilibean Stickers, Basic Grey Stickers and so many more that I forget.

The tiny little alpha are from the Studio Calico Wood Veneer range and I have simply painted these with some Yellow Gelato to match my layout. The fabulous Corner arrow chipboard underneath my title has been coated with some Blue Polkadot Washi Tape from Queen & Co followed by some Glossy Accents to help add more of the faux enamel look.

You Sparkle You Shine

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

Hi everyone! I am going in for surgery on Friday which hopefully will be just minor but it could end up being a major surgery so I might be out of it for a while. I did get a chance to play last night however and created this fabulous layout using My Minds Eye & Rhonna Farrer Designs Spread your wings and Fly Collection. Seriously can I just say that I have always loved Rhonna and her designs but man she still blows me away each and every time she releases something and My Minds Eye and Rhonna are simply a match made in heaven.

I have also used some fabulous Heidi Swapp goodies for this layout including a 12×12 stencil and 2 shades of Color Shine Mist. I have to say that Color Shine is my definate favourite mist. Yes yes I hear you all saying that I say that about everything but no joke, Heidi’s line is above and beyond all my expectations. The Colour is incredible and vibrant and the shimmer is over the top and so much more than others out there on the market I just adore them! Think Dylusions inks mixed with Perfect Pearls Mists x20! LOL

To create the background on white cardstock, I have simply sprayed the centre of the page with Pink Color Shine (over the stencil) and then I have sprayed the edges with Yellow Color Shine. I then sprayed some more pink and yellow to help blend and create an ombre effect towards each other. When this was dry I have added a few spritzes of water to my palm and flicked the water over the top to create this cool bleached effect on the color shine. This technique is so fun and easy to use with Water Based paints that are not water proof.

I have fussy cut my photo for this layout because I just thought it was such a cute pose and it was wanting to be leaned on some pretty papers. I have distressed the edges and machine sewn around the border before adding some washi tape, enamel dots, doilies and the paper layers.

I have then added some stickers from the My Minds Eye Spread your wings and fly collection and to help distress them up to coordinate with my layout, I have simply scratched the surface with a nail file.

Well that is it from me today, until next time, happy scrapping!
