Can you believe it is March already?! February always flies past way too quickly!
So, the start of a new month means a plethora of new scrappy challenges to check out. Here are the ones I'm lucky enough to be part of bringing you each month:
Being March, we've gone with all things green in honour of St Patrick's Day, and we've come up with a mood board chock-a-block with lots of bits and pieces to inspire you:
I took inspiration from the colours and the paint brush and crayons. I wanted to create a really arty, textured background and did that using Impasto and Gelatos and Glimmermists. I also used up some odd alphabet stickers that I can't use to create words with anymore to add a little more dimension. My handmade embellies are the flat paper flowers; I stamped some with Staz On, and coloured the others with Gelatos. I also coloured the flourishes with Gelatos, as they were raw.
Can't wait to see how this board inspires YOU!
At AFSC this month, our first challenge for you is a prompt challenge:
Scrap or art journal about a favourite song in from your teens. You can scrap some of the lyrics, or the title, or a photo of the band …
One of my favourite songs in my teens was "Always" by Bon Jovi. I don't know what it is about the song, but I still love to listen to it and sing along to it these days :)
So I found a nice photo of JBJ and used that to create this layout:
I created a grungy background using Gelatos and a stencil, plus Glimmermist and stamping and journaled some of the lyrics around the outside edge of the page.
I look forward to seeing a range of pages and songs in the gallery over the next few weeks :)
And finally, I can announce, I am fortunate to be on the Autumn Design Team at D-Lish Scraps! I'm blessed to be working with a wonderful team of talented ladies. Click on the link above to check out who they are ;)
Our Tropical Twist mood board this month is bright and cheery and so much fun:
So many different elements to consider!!
Here is my sample page and some close ups:
The chipboard stars and birds, jewelled flower, tassle, chevron flair and resin rose are all from the D-lish Scraps store. Go and check it out - I know Amanda has busily been stocking up with some gorgeous new products!!
I hope to see you join in with the challenges this month - there is so much to be inspired by and get you scrapping your precious memories!
Thanks for looking. Warmest wishes, Catie xo
