Transport & Brothers

Well it's that time of the month, the last day to get the monthly Challenges done, and start anticipating new challenges to be loaded : )
Here are my last 2 for February ... they are both for Challenge Heaven, which means I have completed 6 out of 7 this month, and I am rather chuffed about it too !!
This one is for the Theme Challenge, the criteria is Transport and to have used Ink. I have used MME round and round PP's and chipboard embellishments, I have used smooch (pearlised ink) to colour the chipboard trees and have also used Distress Inks and Staz On Ink.

The next is a sketch Challenge, which I struggled with at first, as the sketch has 3x3 photos, but once I got started it all came together quite nicely ! I have used Fancy Pants, Rough and Tough PP's.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving some luv !!

UR ....

Here is my entry for the number challenge for this month at Challenge Heaven. The criteria is for 3 photo's, 2 Leaves, 1 button and must also include an arrow. I have used misc Kaiser PP's and had a lot of fun with a white gel pen : )

The next LO I have done recently is for the Kraft it Up challenge, and this month is a colour challenge, the colours are light blue, orange and black. I struggled with this LO as this is my second go at KIU and last month I actually used these colours (weird) so I'm looking forward to a new challenge next month. Not overly happy with the outcome, but hey it's not too bad, it's still another page in the album : )

Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment, I have really been enjoying reading them and having a look thru other people's blogs ... you all inspire me : )

I have finally completed my LO for White With 1 Feb Challenge. The criteria is Brown and vintage, I struggled with this one as I have not done many vintage pages before, but I am very pleased with the outcome : )
I have used a bit of everything including Kaisercraft, Glitz Designs, Graphic 45, Dusty Attic, Tim Holtz, Glimmermist, Glimmer chips, piece of vintage lace and quite a few more bits !!
The photo is circa 1960, it is my father and his two sisters, still trying to find out the year and location of the photo. Hope you like my take on the challenge ...

My Happy Place

Another challenge down for Challenge Heaven : ) This one is a word challenge, the word is 'Happy' and the added criteria ids to have a scalloped edge. I have used the Creative Imaginations - Breathless Range, mainly because the person I have scrapped is a big Twilight fan and was very excited when this unique range was released. Thanks for looking ...

Love Bug

I have completed my first challenge of the month, this one is for the Colour Challenge at Challenge Heaven. The colour is Summer Colours, fresh and bright, and to use paint !!
This was a little out of my comfort zone as I have not used paint as a background before, but have been inspired by Cathy Cafun's beautiful work and decided I must give this technique a go !
Here is my take on the challenge, to me these bright colours are 'summer' and I have used 'Hot Pink' and 'Violet' paint in the background, I have also used 'Lime' to paint the Dustic Attic chipboard scroll : ) The PP's are Echo Park, Sweet Summertime. I have also used some die-cut stickers from Heidi Grace that I have had hanging around for awhile ! Thanks for dropping by !!

'Always Dream'

Last year I started an off the page project and never quite finished it. A close friend bought me the 'scrapware' little bird houses OTP a few weeks ago, so I thought I had better finish this one before I got started on my little bird houses : )
I am fairly new to OTP's but I had seen this in my LSS and also in a magazine, so I thought I'd have a go ...
It is a rectangle shadow box by Dustic Attic and also has the ornate window, fence, script words and bird also by Dusty Attic. I have used texture paste, crackle paint, UTEE, distress inks, glimmermint, websters pages, prima flowers and also the just released paper flowers by Kaisercraft. I am happy the outcome and have learn a few new techniques in the process !!
