A2Z Scraplets DT layout

Hey it's Tanya. 
Hope you all had a great Easter. 
One thing for sure, there was way too
much chocolate consumed in my house!!!

Here's another DT layout that I have done 

 We all have stickers and other lettering 
type items but we don't have enough to create a
whole title - right??? Well you can incorporate
an A2Z Scraplets chipboard word and then use some 
of your odd bod letters to finish off the title 
like I have on my layout.

Thanks for stopping by - see you again soon xxx

A2Z Scraplets DT Layout

Sharing a layout with you using another 
old family photo. This one is of my Great 
Grandparents and Great Uncle. 
I'm slowly chipping away at the collection 
of photos that my Auntie gave me to scrap.

The Mimi 1 Rectangle oval frame has been embossed 
with Antique Gold embossing powder. In real 
life the frame actually looks more like metal 
than chipboard.

Thanks for stopping by - Tanya x

A2Z Scraplets DT layout - April

Cherished Melbourne Moments

 Sharing with you my Dt layout for this months 
challenge at A2Z Scraplets. Below is my layout 
using the chipboard title Cherished Moments 

So this months challenge was to Scraplift a 
layout off the A2Z Scraplets blog. I have 
chosen Donna's layout to Scraplift. The great 
thing about a challenge and scrap lifting is it 
doesn't have to be exactly the same, it is 
your interpretation.I haven't been to Italy so
I had to choose a different title - damn I wonder 
if I could con my husband for a holiday to Italy 
because I need to scrap layouts for a challenge...
if only he would fall for that!!!!!

ARTastic Dt layout - April 2017

Love My Mum

This month the ARTastic challenge is to take 
inspiration from the artwork below from Kenneth 
MacQueen called Wild Poppies.

Below is my interpretation.
I loved the greyish blue watercoloured 
tones that Kenneth used in his painting. 

Have a lovely day.
Thanks for stopping by.

White with 1 DT Layout - April


So here is the White with 1 challenge for April.
The colour board and sketch as below. And then 
of course my layout. I love doing sketches, they 
are so easy to do, you can interrupt them any way 
you like. Sketches are good because you can follow 
every detail or just parts of the sketch. Pretty 
much whatever takes your fancy!

Sketchy Boards April DT Layout

Hello there
Here is my layout I have done for Sketchy 
Boards Challenge. Below is the sketch and 
mood board and my layout of my Pa and Auntie 
Joan many many years ago. Sorry about the 
quality of the layout photo. It was hard 
trying to get the old photos not to glare 
and look crinkled.

A2Z Scraplets DT Layout

Hello there xx

I love this paper collection from Kaisercraft 
called P.S I Love You. And of course I just
love these photos of my kids with my mum. Wish 
she was still here with us to see them growing 
up. x

The Beautiful chipboard piece has been gessoed 
and then embossed with Lindys Hibiscus Rose Orange 
which is certainly more pink than orange.

A2Z Scraplets DT Layout


Sharing another layout with you. This one 
has involved lots of cutting and stitching. 
A few of the coloured panels were a bit bright 
and out there for me so I toned them down by 
cutting them out and replacing them with red 
shades of paper, some plain and some patterned.

As you can see I have stitched all around what 
call the white sun ray. Lucky I love hand 

The chipboard I have used is Doily Frame
and Love is all you need which is part 
of the January release.  

Both pieces of chipboard have just been covered 
with several coats of white paint. 

See ya - thanks for stopping by xxxx

A2Z Scraplets DT Layout

Sharing another A2Z Scraplets DT layout with you.
I love love love this chipboard piece. I have kept 
it very simple as its gorgeous without needing to do 
anything to it. The only thing I have done to it is 
I have sponged on Tim Holtz Distress ink around the 
swirly edges of the chipboard, the solid circle part 
I have left natural. The gorgeous chipboard is called 
Frame 16  if you want to purchase it for yourself.

Thanks for stopping by, have a great day x

Funky Flairs Studio - DT layout

Hello There!

Sharing a layout I have done for Funky Flair Studios 
using a few of their gorgeous silver metallic flairs.
Check them out on the website. They do look much nicer 
in real life. They are a tiny bit hard to photograph 
as they reflect a bit.

A2Z Scraplets DT Layout - March Challenge

Howdy there
Today I'm sharing my layout that I did as 
inspiration for the March Challenge which 
is Aqua and Teal. 

I actually love everything about this layout. 
When I started I had no idea how I was going 
to do it. I had picked out some of my scrap 
papers, the photo I wanted to use and the 
chipboard title and that was it. Then just
when I sat down to scrap this layout the 
mailman delivered my A2Z Scraplets order 
and inside that parcel of goodness was the 
Spotty Circles Chipboard and instantly 
I knew what I wanted to do.

All the chipboard has been embossed with white 
embossing powder. The circle chipboard has some 
little sprinkles of Lindy's Best La Vie Cerise 
embossing powder on the circle parts then heat 
embossed then a few enamel dots to finish it off.

Of course I have added a touch of hand stitching 
to my layout too. Thanks for stopping by. I hope 
you can find some time to join in with this months 
challenge. Cheers - Tanya xx

ARTastic DT Layout - March

This month the ARTastic challenge is to use the 
above painting by William Rose - An image of November 
as inspiration. The criteria is to use a stencil. 
I loved all the lines in this painting.

First I used 3 different Colour Blast pastes with 
my stencil. When that was dry I painted the black 
lines on my layout by dipping string in runny black 
paint and dipping it onto my layout.

White with 1 DT Layout - March

This months Colour challenge at 
White with 1 is Orange Peel.

It's not a colour I use often but when I 
do I am always really happy with the layout 
that I have produced. I really should use 
orange colours more often on my layouts.

So here is my layout. Love this photo of 
these two little monkeys. I was pretty impressed 
that their mumErin was quick enough to get 
this photo as they don't stand still for very 
long... its a boy thing. I'm looking forward 
to meeting their new brother or sister in a 
few months time. Oh Matt and Erin you really 
are going to have your hands full, lucky you 
breed really cute kids xx

Sketchy Boards Challenge DT Layout

Hello, back with another layout for you.
I loved this sketch (well until I started 
this layout) I had this chipboard heart in 
my stash and really wanted to use it, but hooly 
dooley did I have trouble working out how to
place my photos.I got there in the end but I 
really did struggle there for awhile.
Thanks for stopping by and hopefully you give 
this month challenge a go (just don't use 
an awkward shaped chipboard that puts 
you off - hehehehe)

A2Z Scraplets Dt Layout

Hey there.
I'm sharing another layout that I have 
done for A2Z Scraplets. I don't normally 
scrap layouts without family or friends in 
them so this scenery shot is something a 
little different for me. 

This is Bell in Queensland, just out of 
Dalby. We camp here with friends for one 
weekend every year in early January. 

There's not much in this little town, a pub, 
caravan park, general store and a race course 
is about all that is there. But that all we want. 
We always have a wonderful relaxing time. Drink 
too much but hey worse things could happen. 

This sunset photo was taken just in front of the pub.

Hey there. I'm sharing with you another 
layout I have scrapbooked of my mum and

On this layout I have used some gorgeous 
Squiggle Flourishes. The flourishes finish 
off the cluster of flowers and leaves just 
nicely don't you think?

Thanks for stopping by, have a wonderful day.

ARTastic Dt Layout - February

Hello there!
Sharing with you the DT layout I have 
done for ARTastic this month.
The criteria is butterflies or other 
insects. I liked the cream colour of the 
horse and that happened to work in well 
with the colours and tones of this old photo. 
Elizabeth Ann Byers is my Great Great 
Grandmother. I'm guessing this is who my 
mum was named after. She must have been a 
lovely person!

Thanks for stopping by and please join us 
in our challenge this month.

A2Z Scraplets DT Layout

Love You
Isn't she the sweetest??? I love her 
to bits. Whenever we go somewhere 
together she always takes selfies of 
us both, never serious, always silly but 
thats how we roll!!!

The Love You chipboard is super cute 
with the heart attached. I have painted 
the chipboard with green paint and added 
dimension to the heart using mini prills.

Thanks for stopping by. Tanya xx
