White With 1 October Challenge – Watermelon

Hi everyone! I am so excited to be here to share my first official challenge as a White with 1 Design Team Member. White with 1 is a super fun and popular scrapbooking challenge blog where the aim of the challenge is to include only white and 1 colour in your entire layout. A tiny bit of black is allowd for journalling distressing etc but that is it!

The challenge colour for October is Watermelon. You can check out the White with 1 blog here or the Facebook page here.

Here is my take on the challenge.

Amy Prior Watermelon October 2013 3

The sponsor for this month’s challenge is 2Crafty chipboard so the Design Team all got lots of little chipboard bits to play with.

I have had these photos of my eldest daughter Mia with her bestest buddy Tayla for a while and really thought they were perfect to use with this colour palette.

The background paper is Heidi Swapp Color Magic and has been sprayed with a mixture of Heidi Swapp Sweet Cherry & Primrose Color Shine Sprays randomly. I have then added a drippy crackle paint circle over and over again around the entire background which added lots of fun white texture.

The patterned papers vary as I raided my entire stash to get this watermelon variety but some brands include Fancy Pants Designs, My Minds Eye, BoBunny, Websters Pages, Kaisercraft and many more.

CSI Case File No 78

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

Hi everybody! I am currently on my way to the fabulous Hunter Valley Gardens to enjoy the Snow Time fun as well as the chocolate festival mmmm chocolate. Ok so I might come back a few kilos heavier but I promise the diet starts next week LOL.

Today I wanted to quickly share a layout that I created for the current case file over at CSI Color Stories Inspiration. You can click here to visit CSI and join in the fun too.

Here is the details for Case File No 78

Now the idea of this challenge is to use all the colours, at least 2 pieces of evidence and at least 1 of the testimony options in your journalling.

Here is my take on the challenge using papers from Carta Bella & My Minds Eye…

The evidence that I have used includes Heidi Swapp Color Shine Paint Splatters (paint), Tim Holtz Ideaology Film Strip  (transparent object), Alpha Stickers (stickers) and My Minds Eye Enamel Dots (something glossy).

To create the background effect, I have used Heidi Swapp 6×6 Polkadot Stencil with 2 different shades of Distress Inks and a Blending Tool. I have then sprayed some Mustard Color Shine into the centre and dripped a few splatters in 2 corners.

Until next time, happy scrapping!
