My Layout for Feb Scrapping Top 50 challenge

Hi there
It has been a while since I joined in the challenges at Scrapbooking Top50 - I loved the sketch created by Chloe so I decided to give it a try.
I used the amazing Neocolor water soluble wax pastels from Scrappingclearly shop and scribbled the background and used a water brush to soften the colour.  I used an old roller stamp  - think its Studio Calico from my stash, I coloured some muslin with Dylusions Vibrant Turquoise , my new WRMemory Keepers manual typewriter, the new papers from Kaiser - Island Escape, staples and foam mounting tape.
Here is the sketch:

Until next time

Explore Layout Using my Stash

Hi everyone

Have you ever had spare paint leftover from a project?  Well I had this lime green left over and smeared it onto white cardstock and placed it in my pile of  ready made "backgrounds".  I decided to use this to create a layout and to also use up some old products in my stash!  I used a 49&Market stamp, some black sewing thread, lime green paint, old press studs, old alphas, Pilot Permaball black pen, a piece of Tim Holtz Negative film strip , hessian, some metal findings,

Thanks for visiting today xx
Happy crafting!

January Layouts to share

Hi there,
Sharing some layouts I have been creating over the last few days.  

The first one is a fun layout with journalling to my Daughters.

Products I used : my all time favourite script stamp by Pam Carrikers, Black sewing cotton, WR Memory keepers typewriter, old alphas from my stash, rhinestones from my stash, Heidi Swap Embellishments, Bazzill Marshmellow (250gsm) cardstock from Scrapping Clearly shop, Dylusions in Vibrant Turqouise watered down, Pilot Permaball Black Pen in medium .  Just love this pen for doodling, writing over textured surfaces and much more!

I wanted this layout to be a fun, artsy page and not to be perfect - i.e.: my journalling strips are not perfectly straight on purpose!

Until next time,
Happy Crafting
