What A Hoot!

I've been wanting to share this for a while, but couldn't, because it was for the Hambly DT call. Unfortunately, I didn't make the team. )-: But I did have fun creating this layout. I created the background using masking tape, gesso, washi tape, and Glimmermist. Messy = fun!!!
I cut out several transparency frames. On some, I adhered my photos, and on others, I added a rub-on. I then added Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots to the back of them to create some dimension (I definitely didn't want everything flat!).
I used rub-ons for my borders, and decorated with Liquid Pearls.
And I finished off with a bright red, bold title, and some rhinestones (of course!).
So, are we all ready for the weekend? One more day to go! Yay for Fridays!!!

The Color Room Challenge #82

I'm back! It's been sooooo long since I've had time to play in The Color Room, and I have missed it greatly. But I am finally back!
This layout was created for Challenge #82. Yes, that was a couple of weeks ago, but I've been busy!!! :-) Life got in the way, as per usual...
Here's a close-up of the Prima candelabra that I inked blue (with Ingvilde Bolme's new inks), and covered with glitter.
I used the blue ink on the grey ribbon flowers too. Plus a little purple colour from a copic pen. I added a few Prima flowers, and cut up a Prima vine. Lets just say this DIDN'T turn out anything like what I had in my head, lol!!!

Crafty Sketches In November...

The November Sketch is up over at Crafty Sketches. This is such a fun sketch. I just adore it! There is so much room for interpretation.
If you would like to join in the fun, just click here for details.
This is what I came up with! Love, love, love the colour!!! Don't know what it is at the moment, but all my layouts seem to feature yellow, orange or red. Must be a phase I am going through? I've used lots of Sassafras goodies for this layout (papers, stickers, Foldies, paper flowers). And lots of stitching for texture (and because I haven't played with my sewing machine for feels neglected, lol!). Titled: Love This Girl.

And So It Comes To An End...

I've been so fortunate to have a glorious 18 months as a Design Team member for Zva Creative. But as the saying goes, all good things must come to and end. And unfortunately, it is time for me to move over, and allow some new, fresh talent to have the same opportunity that I was given. All I can say, is that I will miss this "family" immensely. They were a really wonderful team to work with. And I wish all the best for the new team that has come on board. Have fun ladies!!!
Here are my last two layouts for Zva. As some of you may have noticed, I have a thing for "orange" at the moment. And that has continued with these two layouts. (-: I don't plan it that way, it just happens. This one is titled: Flowers In Winter.
Zva Creative products used: CR-04CB-115; FL-04CA-112; CRW-04CB-129; FL01CB114; FL01CB115; and FL01CB117; FL01CB110; FL01CB112; BRBK02CA103; BRBK02CA102; AD01CB101 AND AD01CB102.
Here's my very final layout for Zva Creative. Titled: She Doesn't Do Normal.
Zva Creative products used: CRW01CB113; CRW-04CB-129; CRS-03CB-118; FL01CB110; FL01CB117; BRBK02CA102; AD01CB101 AND AD01CB102.
Thank-you for joining me on this journey, and I can't wait for my next adventure to begin...time for new doors to be opened.
