Let's take a selfie... my first... ever!!


Do you take SELFIES?

Well, I can tell you that this is my FIRST!!

Yes, our daughters and son are quite adept at holding their phones at an awkward angle while making sure they are smiling on a completely different angle... but this is not really my thing?

So, the group challenge this month is

I picked up a couple of sheets of Graphic 45 'Midnight Masquerade' papers at The Stampers Hut - which matched the shirt I wore to Katelyn's Birthday breakfast earlier in the month!!
A little fussy cutting... and some paper layers... and a few pieces of chipboard too!!

Will have to add some journalling to tuck behind the photo...

Step one, two and three plus a holiday layout by Alison Bevis

Did you miss me last month?
Whoopsy, I moved house, packed my chipboard and totally was distracted with unpacking!!
Yes, my craft room went from an Office to a Bookcase....
my goodness, it has been a challenge!!

So I thought I better catch up a bit so have a few extra projects

and a close up of the chipboard - a combination of Paint powder and sprays were used to colour the cogs and black ink for the title.

The Look of Love..
I started by drawing a circle about in the middle of my page and then covering the outer edges with crackle medium. When it was dried and crackled, added a little subtle colour with paint powder to capture the 'cracks'.... and then add some floral paper, a photo and chipboard!!

Added some sequins to each part of the banner for a bit of glitz!!

This page came from a challenge by Natalie May to create something with the leftover 'Pie chart' pieces at the Unmasked retreat in July - I began by masking a rectangular space for the photo and then adhered the Pie pieces along 3 sides. I've dabbed on gesso to cover the the pieces, plus a little extra around the sides, before sprinkling with paint powder and spritzing with water and letting dry naturally.

Embellishing with a bit of lace, flowers, a few mirrored arrows and that great title which spotlights a cute belly.

Onto the next step in the story...
the beautiful baby girl

Our Little Girl

This layout was created with some resin pieces from a previous kit which I didn't get around to entering in a challenge... with a great Imaginarium Designs chipboard title 'Our Little Girl'

You'll have to imagine how lovely the shimmer is from the colour spray!!
