Hey everyone. The last challenge of the year at The Studio Challenges is up on their blog today. It's a year in review challenge. I decided to create a page about the milestones our family had this year. My niece graduated from high school. Ma and Pa celebrated their 50th anniversary. My daughter got married and announced they are expecting baby number 2!!! So much to be grateful and thankful for!! I used the beautiful 'Auburn Lane' collection from Pink Paislee for this layout. There was lots of fussy cutting involved but so worth it. There's a bit of watered down distress ink on the background, finished off with gold color shine splatters. Below are some close ups. Thanks for stopping by and Happy New Year!!!

Hey everyone. There's a Christmas tradition challenge at The Studio Challenges blog today. I decided to create a page about a new tradition for our family. My grandson visiting Santa. It didn't go so well last year, so hopefully it won't be a short lived tradition!! I used the 'Holly Jolly' line from Simple Stories for this layout. For the background I applied watered down distress ink and then splattered some watered down gesso. You have to look very closely to see the gesso splatters so when I was finished I splattered some white colour shine. This is easier to see and also adds a bit of shimmer to the page. The greenery was cut out with dies from Sizzix and the snowflakes with dies from Spellbinders. Below are some close ups. Thanks for stopping by and I hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!!

Hey everyone. I have another layout for Scrapbook Your Joy using the 'Home Again' collection from Carta Bella. Lots of pattern paper, ephemera and even some chipboard. Thanks for stopping by.
Hey everyone. I have another sketch challenge from The Studio Challenges to share with you. I used a new collection from Photoplay called 'We Are Family'. What a beautiful line!! For the background I first applied a layer of modelling paste through a Carta Bella stencil. Watered down distress ink was then applied with a piece of plastic and a brush. Below are some close ups and the sketch. Thanks for stopping by.
