Welcome everyone, today I have created a layout for More Than Words With this challenge you had to use clocks and an inspiration word Moment This photo is of my daughter Tracy and she has just climbed Krombit tops.  And looking back and taking a Moment to enjoy the scenery,  and also to catch her breath as it is a far climb on a stony and rough walking track. You know when you buy a collection of papers and they include that dreaded round piece. I look at them and say to myself oh boy how am I going to use this. They usually go into my mighty stash never to be seen again. But today I decided to challenge myself and use it.  Her is the creative challenge  Products used Kaiser craft Antique Bazaar Collection - Bronze, Unearth, paper pad, collectibles Prima flowers String pearls  Metal embellishments More Than Words also run a mini challenge at the end of each month so I decided to give this one a go to.

Life Is A Journey

Hello everyone once again I have a quick tutorial for you using the lovely chipboard from Memory Maze  for my latest Design Team piece. And yes a layout for you this month I have started with some cog/gear chipboard and used some texture paste really heavily. I had to leave this overnight to dry as I wanted a texture grungy look. When this was dry I sprayed with Glimmer mist sprays ( dry completely after each coat) Until I got the colour I wanted.  Then gently rubbed some rub n buff in gold over the top. I then used some Distress Ink Walnut stain and rubbed gently over the top to tone it down a little. I then created my layout making sure that everything was glued down well. Memory Maze products cogs and gears Other products used Cream card stock Bo Bunny Country Collection - Almanac, Garden Glimpse, Garden Charm Texture paste, clear gesso Glimmer mist - Junifer, Pinecone sprays Spray water Prima glass glitter

Hi everyone it is that time of the month again for another Team reveal with Off the Rails. Today we have a very colourful mood board and a dance theme. You know how we all have those dreaded back ground layouts that have never worked out and put away in a box. Well I have a few of those and today I decided to use one. The one I have chosen has some lovely texture in the background so I have covered it with some gesso. Thank goodness for gesso my best friend ..... Then I used some Lindy's shimmerz Coloringz - Mandarine mai tia, Valentino and No yoking. Also some Vibez Abomedable Blue spray and water to wash the colour out and to spread as well.  I used one of the lids to stamp around the layout to make circles on my page. Also black spots of ink and more around the edges. I went to my mighty overflowing scrap box and used some random papers in matching colours and placed them under my photo. Grabbed a little black saz on and a music stamp and s
