November Archiscraps' scrapbook challenge

Well, I know everyone would like to visit this cathedral. I have, a long time ago. Can you pick where it is?  It is a great view of the inside of Notre Dame in Paris. Gorgeous, right?

It is the inspiration photo at Archi-scraps this month, plus you need to use gingham. I really do not care for gingham myself but have used it a fair bit when I first started scrapping due to it being part of the Creative Memories range of papers in various colours. Of course, I still have some of that in my stash.

Here is my layout.

I've used some as a strip on the left of centre. Plus, I've used some washi in three places. I've picked up the colours that my family are wearing in the pics. Nice and subtle.

Check out what the other DT have done and off you go and make something. Join in the FB page here.

November challenge at ARTastic

When I saw this month's inspiration painting it reminded me of a canvas I had begun at a workshop on 12/8/18. There was not enough time to complete it at the workshop so I brought it home and there it sat.

I was inspired to complete it as I think it very nicely relates to the painting below.

Emma Uber with "Beauty will save the world"

I had drawn the design in pencil and painted some of the flowers and that was all.  I decided to use black around the edges for a more striking look.

Here is a pic of it part way completed. 

Here a couple of what I consider to be done. I'm no artist so I really was a bit scared of stuffing it up.  It could be way better but it looks alright and I had fun doing it. Mainly, I am glad I finally completed it. So, thanks Jane.

Thanks for looking.

November Unstampabelles' challenge - Make it colourful - 2 cards

Hi there,

Racing through the year now.

Time to see what I did for the November Unstampabelles' challenge. Here is the criteria.

 #117: Colour my World TWIST: make it colourful   

An open theme 

I chose to make two cards.  I really loved the pattern on a tissue box I had and decided to cut off the ends and make two cards from them. They had a lovely Australian botanical pattern.

Here is the box.

Here are my two cards.

I added patterned paper, ribbon, die-cuts and sticker sentiments. Couldn't resist some sequins to finish off.

Thanks for looking.
