Scrap The Boys

Hi everyone,
Well, I am back - not such a break this time, but still fairly large.....
Today I am sharing my interpretation of the Scrap the Boys March Challenge.

This month at Scrap The Boys we cant you to create a layout using a typically ‘boy’ colour combination. So get creating and link up your layouts using:
COLOUR COMBOGREENBLUE & YELLOW
Our fabulous Design team has creating the most amazing layouts for inspiration. Some have focussed on one colour and added small amounts of the other colours, while others have a splendid mix of all three.

Fairly easy, I thought.  This is what I came up with:


I am experimenting with mixed media at the moment.  I love the look of all the layers and textures, so I am trying to perfect the technique.  Starting to get the hang of it - and I really like how this one turned out.....

Here are some close up - I mainly used the new Crate Paper's Boy's Rule range.....




Thanks for popping by - hope you have a lovely day.  I intend to spend today scrapping and generally relaxing..if small boy will allow it...

Scrap 365 Sketch

Hi folks
Long time hey - I can't believe it, I actually scrapped!
Unbelievable!
Last night, I had itchy scrapping hands, but just couldn't find the inspiration to do anything about it.  So I went looking for some Challenges.
I found the Scrap 365 Sketch challenge, and was blown away by Raquel Bowman's gorgeous sample, so I decided to give it a go!

Here is my sample:



Here are some close ups - I used Crate Paper's "The Pier" range.  It has such gorgeous muted colours and Kraft papers - I though they would go beautifully with my photos.



Well, that's it from me - really hope I am back again a LOT sooner with more layouts!

Vintage Photos




Since I started scrapping, I have been lucky to have various family members give me copies of vintage photos.  I love scrapping them, and I was so happy to get Kaisercraft "In The Attic" from Anna's Craft Cupboard last month.

Here are a couple of my layouts:

 
If  you are looking at this range I would highly recommend the Collectables too, they are gorgeous and work so well with the vintage theme.  Here are some close ups:




Another layout - photo is of Mum as a baby.

The Bo Bunny "Surprise" range is choc - a - block full of bright colourful papers and embellishments.

I used this new MDF Wall Hanging:

I painted it with a Ranger Dauber in gold and covered it with some Kaisercraft paper from the Attitude range.  Then I just grunged it up with black  ink, sanding and stamping.  Some  mini cogs completed it.
 
Next I did this layout using this gorgeous Altaword:
