Hello everyone ...

Hope you are all having a good Waitangi day!

For Artfull Crafts Design Team - I have been playing with this Kaisercraft UBud Dreams range this week - in my element as the blue/teal is one of my favourite colours. Here is a layout I created using these beautiful papers:

Using a card stock as my base I have cut down the reverse side of the  Mandala paper and distressed the edges. I have then used a stencil and texture paste to create the mask. Once this was dry, I then used two different inks - a green one and a blue one to spray over the page, and created some splats with both colours. I cut out a frame from the Sekar paper and also cut out the mandala from the Bayu paper - these are placed behind the photo.The paper in the tears is the Citra paper. The stamp is from an older range of Kaisercraft but the clear stamps available with this range will work just as well. I have then used some of the stickers off the sticker sheet and some of the collectables.

Thanks for visiting - have a great week!

White ... with 1 - February Challenge

Can you believe it is February already? And the colour for White ... with 1 this February is Blue Jeans
Pop over to the White ... with 1 blog and look at all the lovely pages created by the team .... just gorgeous. So looking forward to seeing what everyone creates this month with this lovely colour. And how about a little more persuasion ...

Below i s my layout for the month of February with the lovely Denim Jeans (and the sketch below used as a base)

I have so few photos of my son - he just does not like having his photo taken and I really need to catch him unawares ... this is one of my favourite photos of him.
Most of the elements on this page are chipboard. These have been gesso'd and then painted with a blue paint. I used a stencil and texture paste on the white cardstock  and then lightly dusted chalk over this, and then stamped on top of this, And adhered the photos and the chippies.

 Pop on over to the White ... with 1 blog and play along ... and how about a sketch to to encourage you to join ... (the sketch is of course optional)
