Cést Magnifique October Sketch Challenge

Hi everyone! I  hope you are all well. Today I am back to reveal the full layout that I shared last week over on the Flourish with a Bling Blog. This layout was created also using the Cést Magnifique Kits October Sketch Challenge along with the October kit from Cést Magnifique. I just love their kits and they are so fun to receive every month even though I sometimes get impatient waiting for the mail to arrive from the US. LOL it never takes more than 2 weeks but it always seems like years when i know there is pretty stuff on the way. Click here to visit the C’est Magnifique Blog and see the challenge details.

The only extras that I have added to this kit for this project are the white lace, Black Crackle Paint, Flourish with a Bling Swirls, A2Z Scraplets Chipboard flower stem and cogs and the Black Satin Seam Binding. Everything else including the fun Christy Tomlinson Mask was in the kit and the addons and they are so fun I think this new doily stencil is my new favourite what do you think?

tn_DivaByAmyPrior_closeup1

Some of the papers strips have been misted with some Dylusions Ink Sprays to add more pops of colour into the 7 Dots Studio papers and the fabulous A2Z Scraplets cogs were sprayed with some Heidi Swapp Black Color Shine while the A2Z Scraplets Flower was hand painted using a tiny paint brush and various shades of Ranger Liquid Pearls. I am seriously loving playing with my liquid pearls they just never get boring!

The background masking was created by rubbing some fabulous Blue Ink Gold over the doily mask randomly on the edges around the page. I am just loving this super shiny waxy shimmer effect. Love love love.

tn_DivaByAmyPrior_closeup3

My background was also splattered with lots of fabulous Dylusions sprays to tie in the crazy amount of colour that I wanted to add to this layout in flowers etc and I just love how much colour there is colour is definately my friend lately i cannot get enough of it.

I have also added some doodling around some of the details of the background masked doilies. The Inka Gold is actually a wax based medium so obviously pen markers are not their best friends so I had to be careful to doodle around the Inka Gold and not over it otherwise I would have just ruined my favourite Project Life pens.

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.

IMG_4044

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.

IMG_4045

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.

IMG_4046

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.

All Smiles with A2Z Scraplets & Flourish with a Bling

 

 

Hi everyone! Just a quick share from me today using lots of fabulous goodies from A2Z Scraplets & Flourish with a Bling.

I have used the A2Z Scraplets Kit which can be found here and is only $40!

IMG_3889

To decorate the background, I have used the A2Z Scraplets mask as a diamond in the centre and then in the four corners. I did not want the pattern to go to the edges but rather fade out so I have done it really roughly around the edges.

IMG_3892

I have then sprayed some Pink Bubblegum Dylusions Spray and dripped off to create a starburst. I had to dry each drip in between slightly but it was worth it. I have then sprayed with Yellow Dylusions and outlined with a marker.

IMG_3891

To decorate the chipboard title and butterfly, I have smeared some gesso onto my craft sheet and then stamped the chipboard pieces over to allow gradual rough amounts of the gesso to transfer over and create a cool texture. I have then sprayed with Dylusions Ink Sprays and outlined with some Black Crackle Paint roughly.

IMG_3890

The Doily has been sprayed with Black Heidi Swapp Mist and followed by some Black Crackle Paint. I have then cut my Flourish with a Bling Flourishes to create this coold effect under my butterfly.

All the patterned paper is from Prima Firefly collection and has been distressed on the edges using Black Crackle Paint.

Well that is it from me today, come back tomorrow when I will announce the winner of my All tom Scrap (All About Scrap) RAK giveaway.

Until next time, happy scrapping!

The Color Room Palette #158

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.

All About Scrap August Sketch Challenge with my sketch!

Hi everyone! I am so very excited to share with you all the August Sketch Challenge over at the All About Scrap Magazine. All About Scrap is a Swedish Magazine packed full of the most amazing inspiration and talented ladies ever. I was lucky enough to create a sketch this month for the challenge and I decided to incorporate a challenge for myself also. That is, fitting more photos into a page.

So here is my sketch using 6 photos and you can click here to view the website and enter the challenge. 

tn_All About Scrap Sketch By Amy Prior

 

I had originally intended on going completely Shabby Chic and had a layout all planned in my head but I then decided to show a more flat easier version still using this very over the top sketch.

tn_IMG_3324

I have used the fabulous Echo Park Paper Co Picnic Mini Theme Papers and stickers. 

tn_IMG_3325

The super fun photos were taken at a recent birthday party for a boy from church and this donut eating competition was so funny to watch and the kids had such a good time trying to eat without using their hands LOL.

tn_IMG_3326

 

The background splatters were created using Tim Holtz Distress Stains literally just splattered down.

I also have a little RAK on offer for anyone who enters the challenge and also visits my blog and leaves a comment. Checkout the prize…

Be sure to check out the magazine All About Scrap and join in the fun of this month’s sketch challenge.
