'Summer Backyard Adventures' and 'Party Time'

Summertime Backyard Adventures
Hi there all,

As promised here are the last 2 LO's crated for the Scrapbook Savvy Cyber Crop last weekend. Crossing my fingers that this will be in time?

Summer Backyard Adventures

First I'd like to share the background before I completed the 'multi-medium' and texture parts lol:
This 'word' challenge (hence the word "Summer") was set by Savvy DT Karen, and another of my 'old' photos. This one is my 2 adorable DS's back in the Summer of '91, they were 1yo - riding on his 'BMW car'  and 8yo - 'show casing' what I think was a new bike!

I actually thought about cropping the picture so you get close-ups, but decided not to as it would  spoil the authenticity of the 'outdoor loo' and the 'cracked footpath'.  As a matter of interest - the house we were renting ( in Selems Parade, Revesby) was demolished and replaced by shops a couple of years later. The great thing about that (big) back yard was it was flat and always sunny!

Supplies used:

Best Creations pps (Robot); Twiddleybitz Chipboard (Steam Punk Cog Frame SPK012 & Fern and Flourish Border BOR0020); Gesso; Twiddleybitz and The Crafter's Workshop stencils; Washi tapes; wool; Rainbow Splendour felt chevron; my2angels star felt, ribbons and bicycle charm; 7 Gypsies stickers; Viva Inka-Gold (Cobaltblue); plasterer's mesh; Simple Stories acetate; Yellow Daisy, Puerto Rico & Turquoise blue Glimmer Mists; Glossy Accents; Purple Pumpkin bicycle button; 450 Quick Dry glue & foam tape.

Party Time


This is the final set of 'old' photos for today....Talented Savvy DT- Sar set this colour challenge, with the 'party' theme (Criteria to use 4 out of the 5 colours: teal √, orange √, green √, yellow √, brown √...

I also decided to join in the sketch challenge set by the lovely Heidi Williams - over at the Scrapbooking Club, Brisbane.
 
You'll see I've turned the sketch and used 3 photos - the photos show some more of my sons' cousins, at the younger son's 2nd birthday party.

Supplies used:

Kaiser (Devonshire Collection) & Sassafras (Ellie's tale) pps; A Lil' Somethin' banner; green & orange lace; Martha Stewart edge punch; Claudine Hellmuth stencil; Rainbow Splendour pinwheel; my2angels charms; double sided tape; 450 quick dry adhesives; Twiddleybitz Chipboard (WOR058A); Versa Color ink (311 antique).

Thanks for popping over everyone! Hopefully I'll get "some" time to create over the next weeks. In case you aren't aware I've decided to take the opportunity to follow one of my dreams and become a 'poor' student! I'm going to study and be volunteer (hopefully paid eventually lol) Teacher's Assistant.

Homework and study will obviously be a 'time' priority for a while, but I should still be able to participate in my regular embellishment and ATC swaps, as well as continue with my photography and other paper art *** all fingers crossed ***  Thank you all for your continued support and encouragement... hugs 'n' hearts always xxx Mazz xxx

Quote of the Day

butterfly kisses

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.
