October challenge - Unstampabelles - Story Time

I love October. My birthday month.

I love reading, particularly a good story. I love writing on my scrapbook pages and recording the story too.

This challenge is a wonderful one in my opinion.

Check out Unstampabelles #116: October

 Everyone has a Story                            TWIST: use a page from a book somewhere in                                                                                                                      your piece

I'm looking forward to seeing the entries. Here is mine to inspire you.

and each page, a little closer

The book page is an archival safe one from October Afternoon.

I do love to include memorabilia in my travel albums. Do you?

Hope you can join us. Check out what the other Designers did.

Friend card

Hi there.

I've created a card for the Stick It Down challenge.  Here is the sketch.

Here is my card.

I decided to go very girly and use purple and pink.

I created that fabric flower in the middle and have been waiting on a project to use it for.

I think the frame works very well.

Thanks for looking.

October ARTastic mixed media challenge

Here is a fun challenge.

May be art
Lyn Butchart with Aquatic Art

Don't you love the colours! The extra criteria is mixed media with ink. Yay.

I made a card.

No photo description available.

This is a rather large card. I love the stencil I used. I added some soft lilac to white gesso. I've also stamped the green corner leaves and the sentiment. I've added a handmade lace and fabric flower that I made too.

You don't have to go the aquatic route, as I have shown, but of course you are welcome to.

October Archi-scraps scrapbook challenge - a sketch

 This month's challenge at Archi-scraps is a sketch.

No photo description available.

The sketch is from "Stick it down." 2014 

I regularly participate in their card challenge. I even won it once and got to be a Guest Designer.

Here is my layout.

May be an image of cat

My cat was having marvellous fun playing with the banner from my husband's birthday party that we had left in the lobby the night before. 

I used a white background so that all the colour would be focused around the photo and I've used a few of the colours from the banner and added a banner too.  Pretty pleased with the end result.

Join us. Sketches are easy and this one is a bit different.
