Scrap FX mood board challenge

Hi today I want to share with you what I created for the latest mood board challenge over at Scrap FX...

But before I do, here is the mood board again and all the deets of the challenge for our chance to win ...

So fun, right??! The boinging rainbow colors can lead to endless creations, plus there are numerous images to be inspired by as well! You may choose to take the quote and run with text, or perhaps some of the patterns speak to you, or maybe even the eye pops out as a starting point for something magnificent. Upload your newly created project to our Facebook page here or leave a blog link on the ScrapFX blog here if you don’t do Facebook (you are more than welcome to do both) so we can check it out. 

 Deadline: Friday, December 13, 2013 for your chance to win! 

DT Challenge: Use Mood Board as inspiration to create a project of any type and use stencils in the creation of project

So without further delay here is the canvas I created for the challenge....
 As you can see I used all the colours of the rainbow, the fabulous Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays.... and I had been dying to create a project using the "You colour my world" title.... this seemed like the perfect opportunity...

Here you can see where I used the Random Dot Stencil around the left/bottom edge of the canvas for some added texture...

I used the Moroccan Tile stencil on the top/right of the canvas to create plenty of texture for my rainbow colours.... I have used the Scrap FX barbed wire strands to help finish off this canvas, they are great for male inspired creations ...

 Finally I had been wanting to use the new "paper tree black" and it just went so well on this canvas..... such fine detail.... love it!!

Here's what I used to create this project:
Scrap FX:

Lindy's Stamp Gang:
Jack in the Pulpit Teal
Tiger Lily Red Orange
Witch's Potion Purple
Afternoon Delight Denim

Delphinium Turquoise
California Poppy Gold
Rudolph's Nose Red

Well thanks for stopping by, I hope I've help inspire you to have a go at your own rainbow creation and I look forward to seeing what you create...

till next time

Scrapbookit DT....yay!!

I'm very excited to be able to share with you all my first creations for Scrapbookit....
First up I have a layout "Red Rock Canyon" 
I created this layout using the Graphic 45  Typography collection, now who doesn't love Graphic 45.... along with the Graphic 45 I used some fantastic Scrap FX products (Chevron Stencil, chicken wire, Elm leaf stamp) I love the Scrap FX chicken wire, so many uses.... 

 I also used a distress stain to create all the splats and drips on the layout, as well as to colour the corrugated cardboard and chicken wire.... I finished the layout off with some Kaiser lettering and by altering some of the flowers available from Scrapbookit....

Next up I have an altered project to share...
an alarm clock I altered using more of the Graphic 45 Typography collection, and more of the Scrapbookit flowers, along with some cogs cut from black cardstock

  add to this a Scrap FX "moments" mini word to finish it off 

Well I hope you've enjoyed these projects and are feeling inspired to create some of your own...
thanks for stopping by and remember you can find all these products over at Scrapbookit
Till next time,
Happy Creating

New Scrap FX fun...

Hi just wanting to share with you my latest creations with the new Scrap FX releases....
Scrap FX have outdone themselves this month with their new stencils and stamps and of course chippies... so much to choose from I didn't know where to start.... You can check out all the new releases here...

First up I have "Ancient Ruins"  (no snickering about the relevance of the title to my pic either, lol)...
I just loved the new Brick Frame and thought it worked perfectly with the brick wall in my image, and I couldn't resist the gorgeous new Moroccan Tile Stencil... a new fav!
Add to this one of the fantastic new Leaves Stamps and the cute new Words Sets ....

 some close ups of all the detail:

Next up I have another layout to share "Celebrate" 

Here I have used the new Squares and Circles Stencil, it creates a great random pattern

A close up of the embossed Ruffled Feather Stamp (one of my all time fav's, it creates great texture and patterns, so versatile for any project)  You can also see the Flower Posy Stamp, and the Flourish Curl Border
