Scrapbooking Top 50 Australia May Sketch Challenge

Here it is folks, the May challenge.

Its a new month, and we have a new challenge! 
This month we have this gorgeous sketch to inspire your creativity! Use it as it is, or flip it to suit your needs, just make sure we can see the bones of the sketch! :)

Here is the sketch...



I struggled with this one. I really didnt like the diagonal line and wondered how I could blend my altered cardstock and the dotty paper. In my stash I found a chippie and popped some paint on and dadaaaa it worked.

Products from Charms creations, Rainbow Splendour and Just Add Flair.


Below - close up.

Scrapbooking Top 50 Australia March Colour Combo Challenge

This month I created a bright and happy layout featuring my youngest grand daughter and my eldest daughter. Hope you like!
You can take part in the challenge too here at -----> Scrapbooking Top 50 Australia Great prizes from Colour Blast up for grabs... You have till the end of the month to participate. Have fun!



Here is my Layout. :)


I have hand stitched the felt.

I chose to paint the feathers and use Stampin' Up ink to create the spills and splats on the background.



I made my own 'Sweet Love and XO stickers which feature in this months 
Rainbow Splendour limited edition kit.



Feathers hand painted with white Kaiser paint and dabbed with Stampin' Up inks.


One of my fav embellies at the moment are the Burdys cogs 
available from time to time at Burdy's Embellies.

Hope you liked what I came up with this month, it was wonderful to be able to use such a beautiful colour combo.

Close up of the stitch and fold technique, I have been wanting to do this for a long time and was inspired by the prettiness of the paper.
