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)
