Today, Life, You - Scrapmatts

Hi & Welcome

Well we have been battling loads of wet weather here in Sunny QLD, not that Im overly complaining, however its a little hard to get a decent shop of projects when its continues gloom skies. 

Today I'm up on the Scrapmatts blog with this months projects, I have created a mixed media page and some more Christmas Cards.

First up.

This page was created using Lemoncraft paper range Every Day Spring, love the vibrant colours in this collection.

I have also used muslin that I sprayed with some Prima Bloom mists along with Prima bling and flowers.  The Scrapmatts Net03 Chipboard used has been treated with the Finnabair mixed media Patina Effects kit. This packs comes with 3 lovely little pots of coloured texture paste and the texture is unlike any other texture paste I've used.

Up next are some more Christmas Cards I have made using the BoBunny Carousel Christmas Collection.  I love how BoBunny gives you so many paper elements to cut out, that you really don't need a lot of embellishments to make something beautiful.  I have however used these cute little stick stars from Scrapmatts.  You can find them over here.

Thanks for stopping bye and I hope you have given you some inspirations this weekend to get you creating.  Until next time!!!!

Creative Artiste Mixed Media - Challenge 31

Hi & Welcome 

Well its the start of a new week, last week I came down with a throat virus that had me reliving my childhood days, minus my mummy to look after me. I'm now day 4 into it and honestly it can leave anytime soon.  Anyway with that all been said lets move onto some fun stuff.

Our Challenge went live on Friday and our Design Team have created some gorgeous inspiring projects to get you in the mood for crafting.  We are getting close to Christmas so its a good time to start thinking about getting those handmade gifts started.

For the anything goes challenge I created a layout, I have used a few different mixed media products on the background although trying to to detract from the gorgeous Fabscraps paper.


Our theme this month is, as always,

Happy Birthday

I have layered cutouts from another sheet from the Dream Steam Collection along with one of their sticker sets.

Lindy's embossing powder was used on the chipboard,  love the two tone effect you get with this powder. 
 I have also used sequins and little gold prills.  And what do you do when you don't have the word Birthday, you simply cut up your other chipboard words to get the letters you need. 
 Tell me, why is there not more than one Birthday word in a packet?????

I have used some gorgeous Colour Blast textured pastes in the background, these are lovely and shimmery when they dry.

Other products used:

Flowers - unknown import
Textured paste - Colour Blast
Mists - Prima
Paper - Fabscraps
Chipboard - Scrapmats
Stickers - Fabscraps
Templates - Scrapmatts

Well thats all from me this week, take care and thanks for stopping bye.

Until next time!!!!
