Made this layout for Week Three of Club Scrap's PSL challenge. Kits used are Boardwalk and Concrete Jungle. The challenge was to use two colors. I chose red and blue. The cut file was from Ashley Horton through Big Picture Classes.  Thanks for taking a look.

By The Seashore

Made this layout for the Technique Challenge over at Club Scrap. We were asked to make handmade embellishments for our scrapbook page. I used new Scribble dies, Starfish and Sand Dollar Quickutz dies as well as old chipboard seashells and tiny seashells from the Club Scrap Castaway kit. The sketch is based the Jack of Hearts card from the Assembly Line Scrapbooking Idea Deck. Overall I'm pleased with the results.  Photos taken at Nye Beach in Oregon.

Saint Francis

Made this layout for a challenge at Club Scrap to use a technique to make the appearance of a faux patina on your layout. Since I did this exact thing on my St. Francis statue last summer, I thought those photos would be the perfect choice for this challenge. I actually think I did a better job on St. Francis but here's the result on my layout. I used black embossing paste through the Adobe stencil and then applied turquoise and copper paint over the dried embossing paste. It sorta works. I used the 5 of Spades sketch from the Idea Deck for the layout. Papers from Refresh the Soul and Common Threads kits. Thanks for looking.

Stained Glass Technique

The Technique Challenge this month over at Club Scrap is to create a stained glass look. I made this circular element a few months ago with Colorburst and finally got around to adding it to a card. Once it was dry, I used an embossing folder to create the design and then inked it with archival black ink. I loved the results. Thanks for stopping by.

Happy Belated Birthday

Just posting this Club Scrap challenge card in order to enter into Club Scrap's February Technique Challenge Linky Party. Made using blue painters tape as a stamp to create the stripes. Cupcake from 50's Kitchen stencil. Colored using Zig Clean Color pens. Thanks for stopping by.

Love Knot Wedding Layouts

Two wedding layouts created from Club Scrap's Love Knot collection. The designs on these papers suggest you can color them in to match the wedding colors you are scrapping. In my case, for my sister's wedding, I used green to go with the Celtic theme of the wedding. For the second layout depicting Mallory's wedding in the Southwest, I used a kind of coral orange-y color to mimic the flowers in the bridesmaids' bouquets. It's a great kit to use for wedding photos. I am also posting these layouts in the Club Scrap PSL for Week Two (fibers) and Week Three (metal)(using metallic paper for the Celtic symbols). Thanks for dropping by for the Love Knot Linky Party.
