over at STUFF 2 SCRAP the challenge for August is very different from my usual colour scheme, but thought I would give it a go !!!!!????

Plus a bit of chipboard on your creation!

my chipboard is KAISERCRAFT printed chipboard ..
the sweet little flowers and frame.

The beautiful butterfly is from IMAGINARIUM DESIGNS

This has been quite challenging for me as I rarely use brights and never so many different colours together ...I struggled adding the red, just a tiny piece at the top left hand side !!!
I surprised myself as I really enjoyed creating with brights for a change ..
I love to expand my comfort zone.
the colours are much brighter in real life ??? for some reason they have come up lighter on the computer ???? funny about that !!! LOL

thanks for dropping by my blog where I share my creations ..
you are all so wonderful for taking the time to leave me some louvvveee,
your comments make my day...
love and hugz, Heather x

TWO challenges!!

two very different pages.. one feminine and one masculine
over at WHITE with ONE this month the criteria is ..
purple + doodling
this was fun !!! doodling I LOVE, but PURPLE is a colour I never use, however I discovered that I loved this challenge ...
which is one of the fabulous things about WW1, we are sometimes challenged to create with colours way out of our comfort zone?
have a go at this one and you may be surprised !!!!
The flowers were white and I sprayed them with "GLIMMER MIST" .. "DEEP PLUM"


IMAGINARIUM DESIGNS are sponsoring this month with a prize pack of CHIPBOARD ..
$30 OF YUMMY CHIPPIES FOR YOU TO PLAY WITH....www.imaginariumdesigns.blogspot.com

this month the theme is 'Fathers Day" over at "SCRAP FOR HELP" we were asked to use some recycled bottle tops, boxes of matches or cigars, or the seal on a can of soda.
I chose to use bottle tops .....
as you can see on the page I layered these with text paper and cut out paper clocks from BoBunny paper, and added chipboard cogs and the alphas are all from Imaginarium designs ...

the pic is of my darling husband with our two "grandies' taken back in 2007.
I used lots of Tim Holtz "rusty hinge" distress ink to give a grungy, masculine feel to the page.
I printed the photo on cardstock .

IMAGINARIUM DESIGNS are sponsoring this month so you have the chance of WINNING $30 OF YUMMY CHIPBOARD !!!! ya gotta be in it to win it !!!!!
