ARTastic cyber crop

 ARTastic are holding their second cyber crop. Go to the link for all the details.

They are playing some fun games and doing 3 challenges. I have examples for the following:

Challenge One
Please use:
1 x photo
2 x buttons
3+ other patterned papers
Arrows (you chose how many)
Enamel dots (you chose how many)

Challenge Three
BOY themed or GIRL themed
BLUE tones or PINK tones

My choices were:
This or That
Used boy, blue, bling, cb, washi and ink. The nautical buttons and the title are cb stickers. I particularly wanted to use bling on a blue page. I've said boy because it's not a girly page.

To be eligible for each challenge prize draw your entry must be placed into the appropriate album (or left as a comment in that album) by midnight Sunday, 28th August. Any entries only placed onto our wall will not be included in the prize draw. Entries must be your original work created exclusively for our Cyber Crop. International entries welcome.

Get on it. Still plenty of time. We'd love to see your entries.

2xcards for Stick It Down

I like to join in with the card sketch each month. 

I had a new product that I wanted to try. Liquid pearls in the colour merlot. It has a metallic lustre and it's just beautiful. I applied it to my chipboard sentiment. Really loved how it came out.

Here are my two cards.  Two are always better than one, right?

Thanks for looking.

August ARTastic design project - scrapbook layout

I hope all is well with you.

I love a nice cup of chai latte. It warms you up in winter and it tastes yummy. Lately I've been having it with almond milk. Very tasty. Adds a nice nutty flavour.

This month's window challenge for ARTastic is a really interesting one. I'm keen to see the interpretations in the entries. I'll show you the inspo pic and then post my layout, then give you my interp.


I felt like there were many choices here.

I've picked up the kraft coloured background, the red from the dress and the wheat. The cinnamon in my tea looked a bit like wheat I thought. Plus, there's bound to be tea in that picnic basket, right? I made a little teacup with some charcoal coloured paper (from the saucer colour in my photo) and I had a chipboard spoon which I coloured with a copic marker. I've also added a banner (inspo came from the spotlights hanging off the sides).

Have a go. Head to facebook to enter here.

August Archi-scraps Design Team layout

Check out my colourful page! A feast for the eyes.

It is my Design Team example page for August's Archi-scraps challenge.

This is the inspo pic. Lots of swirls of colour, I mainly pick out blues and reds and some yellow. The added criteria is to use the colours.

There are also lots of lines so I've incorporated those into my layout as well.

It reminded me of Freemont St in old Vegas where they put the light show on at night so I've made my page about the lights and glitz of Las Vegas.

Join in, go to fb and add your creation.
