Preschool Pic 2013 Berry71Bleu September Challenge

Howdy everybody. I am back today to share a fabulous layout with you all that I have recently created for the Berry71Bleu September Sketch Challenge. The extra requirement for this month’s challenge is to use Mixed Media and you can view the challenge details here on the Berry71Bleu Challenge Blog...

This layout I have created using one of the awesome kits available from A2Z Scraplets which you can find here.

To create my background, I have covered my white cardstock with random shaped and sized paper doilies. I wanted to add lots of subtle texture to the background and I have covered them completely in Mod Podge Matte.

Next I have sprayed some various Lindy Stamp Gang sprays using a Prima Marketing Static Mask. I only sprayed very small sections randomly in 3 different colours. I have then swiped an embossing ink pad over the entire background gently so I grabbed some of the texture and not just covered the lot and then I have sprinkled some Lindy Stamp Gang Embossing Powder over the top and heat set.

The papers that I have used are from the Firefly Collection from Prima Marketing and the flowers are a combination of Flourish with a Bling, Green Tara, Kaisercraft & Prima Marketing. When layering my distressed patterned papers, I have included some ripped and torn cheescloth in between.

I have finished off the layout using some of the torn pieces of cheesecloth placed over my flower clusters and then added some random sequins to match the drips on the sketch.

My Minds Eye June Sketch Challenge

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

Hi everyone! I decided to do some more challenge playing before the month’s end and this time I have played along with the fabulous My Minds Eye June Sketch Challenge. Here is the sketch and you can see the challenge on the My Minds Eye Blog here.

And here is my take on the sketch. I have added a few layers which of course is what I seem to do too often LOL. I have used the My Minds Eye Unforgettable Collection Papers for this layout on some Kraft Cardstock.

I have ripped and sliced various pieces of the My Minds Eye Unforgettable Papers and then doodled randomly on some as well.

I have added some Pink Paislee Mist-a-bles Arrows to the layout which I have coloured using Tim Holtz Distress Inks and a paint brush to create an ombre effect.

I have also added a Black Sequin Heidi Swapp arrow as well as a piece of an A2Z Scraplets Scalloped Chipboard banner which has simply been coated with white paint and then doodled on.

I decided to add a Pink Paislee Artisan Element circle over the photo which has been coloured slightly with some Tim Holtz Distress Ink and then I have added some American Crafts Chipboard Thickers which I have sanded back to create a more distressed look.

Final touches included some Black Dylusions Ink Splatters, Some very random machine stitching and doodling then voila!

Well that is it from me today. Hopefully I can still fit in one more challenge entry before the month’s end. Until next time, happy scrapping!
