I LOVE TO CREATE...

I Love To CREATE...
Hello and  Welcome to our May Challenge here at www.scrapbookit.com.au


This month it was my turn to set the Challenge and I got to thinking about how often we scrap pages of our Loved ones but never of ourselves!

SO this month I have made it all about Ourselves as Scrapbookers/Memory Keepers.!

One of the criteria for this month's challenge is to scrap a photo of YOURSELF or if not of yourself to at least have yourself in the photo with a loved one. I have also provided a mood board for you all to gain some inspiration off and a list of prompts, I would like one of the prompts off the list on your layout. It does not have to be the main title. The last requirement is to add a touch of Mixed Media of any form onto the page.


This is the Mood Board and Prompts!
The other Elements are:
*A Photo that has yourself in it
*A Mixed Media Element
*Inspiration off the Mood Board
*One of the Prompts


I have had A LOT of FUN with this challenge and I really do hope you all do as well.
As usual my Layout is very Busy!! Here it is..


This month I have worked with the Amazing Photo-Play Rhapsody paper range. This paper suits me so well and I have had so much fun with it!!

I have layered a lot of the pattern papers for my background, I have then worked on my Mixed Media element, to do this I have cut a strip of plain coloured paper out, I have then used some white Gesso and I have then sprinkled some of the Lindy's Stamp Gang Magical Shaker in Bavarian Blue over the top and I then spritzed it with some water to get the effect I was after, once this was dried off I used one of the new Kaisercraft Mini Design Templates in Splatter with some Colour Blast Colour Paste in Bling, I also used this to coat over the top of the Scrap FX chipboard feather, this has given it a really nice shiny effect.


The I LOVE TO CREATE words are a Kaisercraft Die that I have used in Fabi! I don't use this machine or my dies any where near enough so I am making an effort to try and use this a bit more. I absolutely LOVE these letters... Jo has them at www.scrapbookit.com.au as well as a heap of more dies and stencils. Pop on over and have a look!


I have used over half the sticker sheet in this layout, I could not decide when to stop there was just SO many Beautiful Stickers to chose from to add to my layout.

The inspiration I have taken from the Mood Board is the Feathers, Arrows, Circles, Triangles and some of the colours.




The Prompt that I chose to use was "I Love" and I added To Create on the end.

I hope that you have enjoyed my layout and challenge for the month of May! Jo and Mel will be back soon with their takes on my challenge and I cannot wait to see what they come up with!


Not to long to go now until our Annual www.scrapbookit.com.au Retreat!! It is going to be SO much FUN, have you booked your spot yet?? It's not to late. It would be So great to see you all working on your May Challenge Layouts at the retreat. Jo will have the entire www.scrapbookit.com.au shop there, so we can all shop to our heart's content.

Happy Scrapping
