SATW April Mid Month Reveal

Hello lovely peeps. It's that time of the month again when Scrap Around the World have their mid month reveal.

We have a beautiful beach themed moodboard this month created by the talented Hera Sugitani.


And this is my interpretation.
I chose a very simple design using the Kaszazz Orange Sorbet paper 5560 from the Summer Time collection. It has a gorgeous little seahorse and some sea plants watermarked onto it.

I used modelling paste

SODAlicious Challenge April

I try hard every month to find the time to enter at least one challenge and this month I couldn't go past the SODAlicious #16 SODAsketch. I am going through a minimalist phase at the moment and this sketch just spoke to me. And I've been dying to use some more of my SODAlicious papers I purchased the other week. 

This is what I came up with.

And here is the sketch.


See nice and simple ......except ...... simple, is actually very hard to do!!!

I agonised over this for sometime. I knew I wanted to use orange, that was a good start! and i knew I wanted to paint a square ...... but that was about the limit of my planning!


This photo of my beautiful and crazy daughter was perfect for this sketch. The background piece is Light Sky from the "Journey" collection. I've also used shards from the "Who Lives Here" Mini paper collection and the "Pencil Lines" collection. I absolutely love their designs!


My title is a combination of a wooden veneer word, a coloured rub on, some letter thickers and the SODAlicious cosy black alphas.


I had fun adding some really quirky embellishments. From an actual leaf to this adorable little woodland owl sticker. I think it's a Fancy Pants one but don't quote me on that.

You can check out the SODAlicious blog HERE. The design team are AMAZING! I love their creative style. It's so carefree and crazy! My kind of scrapping.

Thanks for popping by
xx

My Third 2Crafty Share for April

Hello lovely peeps. Here I am again with my final share for April for 2Crafty Chipboard. This layout was inspired by the beautiful Chantalle McDaniel and our time together at the recent Escape2Create retreat in Port Lincoln.

"Cherish"


The background paper is from 13@rts. It's "Today, Tomorrow, Always" from the Timeless collection. 

These are the 2Crafty Chippies I used.


This layout was so much fun to create. Almost as much fun as taking these photos with Chantalle was. I love that scrapbooking has given me an opportunity to meet new people and this funny girl was an absolute pleasure to get to know. I used the little girls from the "Mini Family -1" set and painted them in bronze to represent us.


I chose the title "Word Loopy Font Cherish" because I really will cherish this time we had together. I love the loopy font titles. The words are perfect and the font is adorable.



I trimmed off a tiny bit of the "Hessian Patch Panel" to place on the bottom of the main photo. I'm  loving how versatile these panels are!


I also added a "Geo Tag". I adore these little things. I never really know how they should be used so I just add them randomly to my layouts LOL!


Finally I added a couple of little stars from the "ATC hearts and Stars" pack. Very versatile little pack this one! I use them randomly on lots of things.


Cracking Up over at Scrappy Chat Designs!!!

My turn over on the Scrappy Chat Designs blog sharing a little technique with you.

Here is a little sneak peek of my creation!


I have loved playing with this kit. The crackle paint has been a favourite but I've also enjoyed the metallic rubon stuff. Especially because I can apply it with my fingers!!!
If you want to see a full technique sheet on how I put this little beauty together then follow the link HERE!

Along with the less consumable products of the DecoArt 'One Step Crackle', Metallic rubon containing 7 divine colours, you can find the divine papers by Kaisercraft in the kit, there is also corrugate paper, Cardstock, fun embellishments and simply beautiful script ribbbon. Once again a kit jam packed with product for you to learn and get creative with and Kim along with my very talented Arty Chic colleagues.



Cheers for now

Fiona xx
