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.

Things That Make Me Smile Always Start With You

Hi there everybody! I hope you are all well, I have a quick random just because layout to share with you all today using the fabulous Echo Park Here & Now Collection but the 6×6 size! Yep I had so much fun just layering the 6×6 patterned papers together for this one and it looks so fabulous and how fun are the miniature versions of the printed papers eeekkk.

Ok so my title needs to be outlined with Silver I have decided after editing these photos but the title is an A2Z Scraplets Chipboard Title that I have simply covered in some Black Ranger Stickles and I have layered the title over some Heidi Swapp Color Magic Banners which have been sprayed with Lindy’s Stamp Gang Starburst Stain Sprays. How fun are all the Heidi Swapp Color Magic stuff seriously I don’t think I will ever not love them they are so versatile and fun!

My background was created using Dylusions Ink Sprays splattered and dripped and then I have finished off the background by inking the edges with Ranger Archival Ink and then added lots of random large circles with some Ranger Black Soot Tim Holtz Crackle Paint. To do this, you have to have the newer runnier versions of the Ranger Crackle Paint as the old versions were never runny and simply all I have done is used the lid paint brush that is included and dribbled circles over and over again and until I was happy. You could do this with regular acrylic paint easily also or ink but I wanted the cool Crackled effect.

The fabulous Feather is from Manor House Creations and I am thinking that I need to purchase more of these aren’t they just divine? I have layered a few Flourish with a Bling goodies over the top of the feather and finished it off with a huge Donna Downey Prima Marketing Flower.

The Live in the Moment Banner was fussy cut from one of the 12×12 Echo Park Paper Co Here & Now Papers and then I have inked the edges with the Ranger Archival Black Ink.
