White with one - Orange Blaze

Yes, another hour, another challenge..
just blogging about it now, whoops!

White with one is such an great way to challenge yourself,
to balance white and just one colour
and get another photo scrapped for an album - hooray!!

The colour for November is

Anyone that knows me,
knows I love copper,
and orange is pretty close..
well, not really but it's an unusually colour that some people find an extra challenge,
so this is what I did...

I added the title 
this young fellow is growing up quickly and is destined for greatness,
he will learn along his journey to be grateful for the unique way he sees the world xx

I started with a white cardstock and stamped some Paper Rose cogs with orange archival ink,
I found some jigsaw puzzle pieces in a couple of different sizes - some had orange ink, some crackle paint, some a bit of both!!
Finished up with a couple of metal cogs, a felt circle and a mini Kaisercraft wooden frame.

Thank you for looking,
Alison xx

Never Stop Dreaming... Kraft PLus challenge - November 2018


Gosh, who knew having a craft store would mean sooo very little time to actually CRAFT ?

Anyway, I had a holiday at the shop this afternoon and created a layout for the Kraft Plus challenge - Mosaic

The image looks like this,

No automatic alt text available.

I like how all those little tiles square up into a beautiful pattern.
I chose a school photo of one of our great nephews - yes, nearly the end of the school year... and then it will be time for new school photos!!

Our youngest child has know finished school, and while I have a FEW years to catch up on for school photos, it's always nice to scrap someone a photo as a gift to them - preserve memories!!

Kraft cardstock plus -
Stamp Darkroom Door - over the background, across a couple of edges, and so it disappears into the background - yes, it has an image of a couple of older gentleman... this young bloke will grow up one day - along with a bunch of masculine imagery that makes up a 'mosaic' background?
Sofie and Andrew at Scrapmatt's create fabulous designs and this 'Mosaic' design seemed a great fit across the stamping with a little embossing paste.
Stapled some twine vertical on the left,
tucked a tag under the photo on the right to add some journalling,
randomly added paste and crackle to the chipboard swirl,
adhered a title from Little Birdie
a felt circle, a key, a metal corner to the tag and finish with a Kaisercraft Mosaic wood piece!!

The stamping is not perfect,
the grid is not straight,
I put it together still wet
I think it's a fun layout!!

Thank you for visiting,
