'Creative Madness'

Image
Hello all!  This month's challenge over at Scrap Matrix is  I have been inspired by both the colours,  and the segmented circles from the mood board. This is what I have created I have started by using my 'Dina Wakley Acrylic Paint' in 'Lemon', as the base colour for my page. I love these paints, as they are such a thick good quality paint,  while being liquid enough for you to easily work with. Next I have used the 'Gin Blossom Stencil' from TCW, along with some more of the 'Dina Wakley Acrylic Paints', this time using the 'Blush' colour to sponge through my stencil. I have then added some doodling to the blossom. I have then added some strip of 'Art by Marlene Collage Paper #3' to my page,  scrunching and overlapping the pieces. I have then used the 'AAll & Create #35 Stamp' to add some stamping to my page. To finish I have used some of the 'Mart

Hello all! There have been lots of girly layout for me lately, but I really needed a good dose of boyish fun. 'To the Moon & Back' 2Crafty Products used: I have started by mixing two of my fave papers from this collection. I love working on a diagonal direction on my page,  so I have cut the papers and adhered them together. I wanted my chipboard to stand out from the page,  but I also wanted it left raw to add some warmth to the cool coloured papers. I have used one of the  'Scribble Circles' , to layer my sentiment and stickers onto.  I have then layered this onto a tag from the collection. I have also used one of the  'Checkerboard Panels' , also left raw, but cut in half, with each piece on either side of my photo. I have then layered some matching embellishments,  under and on the chipboard, to make it part of my layers. To finish I have used one of the  'Arrows Funky

Hello all! I am here to share my latest art journal page with you. I have created this for Bee Arty 'Be You, Bravely' I have created this page in my journal, I have started by using my 'Heavy Gesso' to seal my page. I have then adhered pieces of the book paper and tissue paper, left over from my 'Forever my Always' kit. Up next some stencilling, for this I have used the 'Triangle Spray Stencil', and 'Snow White Colour Paste' Now for some colour. I have mixed together some  'Lagoon & Roadbase Colour Sprays', to make a darker blue.  I have then used a water mister to dampen my page,  and then added some of my colours.  I have then added some stamping to my page using the script,  from the 'Memories Stamp'  Next I used pieces from the 'Forever my Always papers', to build up some centre layers. I have fussy cut the bee from the same papers,  and

Hello all!  I hope you are all staying safe. As I can't go anywhere at the moment, I thought I would revise one of our holidays lol 'Snapshots' 2Crafty Products Used: For this layout I have started with a mixed media background, some splashes of blue. I have used some of the  'Tiny Film Strips'  on either side of my page, for balance. I have finished them with a pale blue embossing powder.  Up there I have used one of the  'Geotags' ,  which I have left raw.  I have also used one of the gorgeous  'Intricate Seahorses' , also finished in pale blue and tucked up next to my layers.   Lastly I have used one of the  'Mini Travel Word Set 1' , snapshots, also finished in the same pale blue finish.  I really love blue and yellow together, it just screams summer to me. I'm already feeling the cold start here lol Until next time Lisa xoxo
