Doing what you love

My take on this months challenge at Off The Rails

.April Challenge

The challenge was to use lots of colour.   I was inspired by all the colours and the lips so I used some of my prills from my stash to finish off the layout.

Hair with heart

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.

April Single Page Sketch

hair with heart

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 what Big Pawz you have

My take on this month’s Challenge at More than Words.

April Main Challenge

My what big pawz you have

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!

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.
