I was stoked to be asked to be a Guest Designer at Stick it Down this month. Something else to tick off the bucket list! Inspired by this sketch, this is what I came up with.
My son grew his hair for 3 years before chopping it all off and donating it to Variety Australia to be made into wigs for kids with cancer. I’ve flipped the sketch ’cause it suited my photos better and replaced one of the photos with an envelope to hold a braid of hair. I’ve used Radiant Gel in Key Lime & Luv-U-Pink and Colour Blast paste in Stormy Weather through a few stencil for my background (which I then mostly covered up with my photos!) I’ve used some washi tape and a scissors brad which I don’t remember where it came from but how very appropriate! The alpha’s are from Amy Tangerine and Tim Holtz Idea-ology. The wood veneer embellies I’ve painted with my Posca pens. tfl.
My take on this month’s challenge at CSI.
I was inspired by the colour scheme and my niece and nephew having fun with the cacti. Sorry for the poor quality photo, it’s been gloomy here for days. The yellow in the photo is actually Radiant Gel Key Lime irl!
My take on this month’s Challenge at More than Words.
For the Nature word inspiration I was inspired by the landscape of the Serengeti in Tanzania, all gold and brown with just a touch of green. So very different from the rain forest where I live. To go with the Nature inspo I’ve used some “Botany” text paper which I think was from Stampin’ Up, some chipboard leaves (possibly from ScrapFX) and a sticky quote from Flutterby Design. The hardest part for me was choosing which animal photo I would use from the hundreds that I have!
My take o this month’s challenge at Mixed Media Place.
I’ve used some Colour Blast Paste in Envy & Sunshine through a couple of Prima stencils, some Lindy’s Stamp Gang Flat Fabio in Merci Beaucoup Mint & Merry-Go-Round Green, Tattered Angels Glimmer mist in Turquise Blue and some Tim Holtz Distress Stain in Fossilized Amber. Don’t you just love all these colour names? I finished it off with some Dusty Attic flowers and others from my stash as weel as some beads and some Heidi Swapp puffy stickers.
My take on this month’s challenge at Corbett Creations which was to incorporate the Alphabet or individual letters in your project.
I’ve used some text paper, some gesso which I then wiped some off through an alphabet stencil which I then mostly covered up with some very old chipboard alphas. I finished off with some Corbett Creations acrylic chevrons. Love these!
My take on this month’s challenge at Scrap our Stash.
I made my own cloud stencil and used some Ranger distress inks (which I’ve had forever and rarely use) to do my backgroud I’ve also used some TCW light & Fluffy paste through a cloud stencil although that’s really hard to see in the photo.
My take on this month’s challenge at Colour Blast.
I’ve used Colour Blast paste in Stormy weather and Bling and some Candy Shimmer dust. I stamped some feathers using stazon onto some acetate then fussy cut them, I’ve also added a chipboard bird and bird cage.
