The challenge is to
Create a layout inspired by ALL the colours in these cocktails and you MUST use at least one piece of chipboard.
 You must use WHITE combined with the colours in the picture. You can use printed paper as long as these colours are the main focus of the paper.
There can be other colours on the printed paper, but not too much to take away from the colours in the inspiration picture.
You can use anything to create these colours like mists, inks or paints.
You can use a small amount of black/brown just for a little stamping, inking, journaling or just as a small accessory; however it is NOT to be the main focus of your layout.
You can use as little or a lot of each colour, but every colour or shade of that colour in the picture MUST be used. You can use varied shades of the colours - it depends on the inspiration that you get from the picture.
The LO was also inspired not by my dgs with his stunning blue eyes and his ‘Mohawk’ style (blonde) hair – that (IMHO)happens to look “wildfire” orange in the photo LOL.  I took this photo while celebrating at “Wildfire Restaurant & bar” at my ds’s wedding reception in April. It was a fabulous day with only immediate family. Naturally the bride and groom were beautiful, but that’s a LO for another day !!!.

Supplies used:
Claudine Hellmuth Studio gesso; Dusty Attic c/b (hanging lamp);
Plaid Extreme glitter (turquoise) & Modge Podge;
The Crafters Workshop templates
Manor House Creations romantic frame;

Sparkling Snowflakes

The theme for August/September at Ideal ATC Swap group is "Sparkling Snowflakes".

It's cold today in Beenleigh/Brisbane/all over Queensland...
 Angela (the group co-ordinator) is looking for a winter themed ATC.  It can reflect anything to do with cooler climates, winter in general or even 'cool' colours.  We may interpret this criteria anyway we like but the ATC must include:  Something representing coolness, and Shimmer or sparkles somewhere on the ATC.
Even thought I didn't have to create an ATC with just snowflakes, in fact I didn't have to have any snowflakes on my ATC at all, I decided to go ahead with that idea anyways...

ATC Manilla cardstock; Cuttle Bug & snowflake embossing folder; Viva Modelling Crème (Mother of Pearl); Stampendous (shaved ice); my2angels snowflake charms; my2angels Diamond Dust;  Tattered Angels chalkboard (concord), Perfect Pearls (blue raspberry) and Lindy’s Stamp Gang Moon Shadow Mist (bluebeard blue-violet); Washi tape; vellum; Martha Stewart butterfly punch; Helmar 450 quick dry adhesive.

Thanks for looking today… another LO coming soon …

Hugs ‘n’ hearts xxx Mazz xxx

Love YOU and some ###NEWS###

****Wahoo ***** How exciting!!! To say I am thrilled to bits to be starting Scrapping Outback as a Design Team member is an understatement! I’m delighted because, as most of you are already aware, Scrapping Outback has been my ‘home away from home’ since I started scrapbooking and attending classes in Mt. Cotton in 2003. Rachelle Minette is the talented owner who started “SO”
Rachelle is a renowned Scrap-booker and artist, including a successful Scrapbooking Memories Master in 2005.  I’m totally honoured to have been chosen to work alongside the other amazing talented artists in the 2014-2015 DT – thanks to Rachelle and her amazing DT for selecting my work.  When you get a chance, please pop over to the SO gallery to peek at the teams’ amazing work. 
So without further ado, I would like to share my first duty as DT – to inspire you in
You can use either white cardstock with the added ‘twist colours’ or you can use printed paper with white and the twisted colours. The main idea is to ensure that white is incorporated with the ‘twisted colours’.   You many add brown or black for journaling, stamping or finer detail work but they are not to be used as a main colour. 
 For my inspiration LO, I thought I only had scallop black Manor House frames left in my stash, so I had to turn it green.
So I covered it first with white gesso and then the Extreme glitter over the top. I also covered all the chipboard pieces with gesso before embossing.
Then I discovered I didn’t have enough texture paste left to cover the page, so I mixed the white texture paste with some acrylic paint to make it go further:
The photo in the LO is of one my darling sisters, with her partner…so happy in love  J
Supplies Used:
 WOW Chipboard (chain link fence); Jo Sonya’s texture paste; Kaisercraft white paint; 
 white Gesso; Manor House Creations flowers & frame (scallop black); Lindy’s Stamp Gang embossing powder (Merci Beaucoup Mint & Bonjour butter),
Prima Marketing butterfly, Martha Stewart corner punch (hearts); Glimmer Mist (vintage pink & lily pad ); Imaginarium designs c/b title (Love YOU);
Viva Décor Stone-Art (sand gold); Plaid Extreme glitter (Peridot);
Spotlight iridescent fabric mesh; Helmar Scrap dots & 450 quick dry adhesives; Couture Creations double sided tape & foam dots.
Thanks for looking everyone – PLEASE leave a comment to introduce yourself and let me know you’ve been – until next time hugs ‘n’ hearts xxx Mazz xxx

Quote of the Day

Turtles (for my collection)


THE best craft glue

My fairy

Your fairy is called Columbine Goblinglitter
She is a bringer of riches and wealth.
She lives in mushroom fields and quiet meadows.
She is only seen in the light of a shooting star.
She wears lilac and purple like columbine flowers. She has gentle green wings like a butterfly.
