Free Time

With all the free time l have at the moment l am scrapping up a storm!

Joining in at Stuck again this week with their sketch and combining it with the current challenge over at White with One.

At WW1 you have to use Pistachio with white. I used a circle mask and added paste and once dry sprayed some Dylusions ink. My papers are from Authentique and Echo Park and the letters are Webster's Pages.

This was the sketch l used from Stuck

Thanks for looking and enjoy your day :)

I found time this week to join in the fun at Sketches over at  My Creative Scrapbook.
I love this picture of my two kids back when they were little at one of our favourite holiday spots.

The papers and embellishments are from My Minds Eye 
I have stencilled and misted parts of the white cardstock background
A handy toilet roll was used to make the circles with paint
I have added a scattering of buttons and 2 stitched circles on the right hand side of the layout
Here are some close ups

This is the sketch to follow

Using Your Stash

Hello there, how many of you have bits and pieces in your stash that never get used much any more? I know l do and one of these are brads. So today l thought l would try and make a dent into my stash of brads.
Here is what l came up with- using a stencil l pricked holes along the bottom of my layout
and filled them with a variety of coloured brads.

2 more examples

 The stencils I used are from Bazzil but you could also hand draw your own design
Why not try and use up some of those forgotten items in your stash of goodies!

LGS September week 1

Sharing today my layout for Lets Get Sketchy
This week the sketch is by the talented Ashley Horton
Here is my take using products from Simple Stories

 I love the chipboard banner in this collection and l have placed it over the printed banner on the PP.
The fish strip is a sticker and l added a couple of chipboard fish to this.  I popped the umbrella,chair and the 2 surfboards
The two papers behind my photo are from American Crafts.

Here is the sketch to follow
I hope you come over this week and have a look at what the design team have created and play along with us!
