Layered card

I always enjoy doing the Stick It Down card sketch.

Here's what I had to work with.

Here is what I created.

Lots of ink and layering here in complementary colours. I quite like that the sentiment is a bit open to interpretation. Could come in handy.

Thanks for looking.

November 2022 Archi-scraps DT post - Steampunk

Check out this funky vehicle. Wacky huh?  This month's inspiration for Archi-scraps is this image and make it STEAMPUNK.

Here's a link if you're unsure what it is.

I've always admired the layouts, tags and cards that people make using this genre.  I don't have a lot of it in my stash. Not at all. I made do that (and have since bought a little paper pad of it).

Here is what I came up with.

The pics are of my Grandpop and the colours of the photos leant themselves to the sepia tones of steampunk and the inspo image. I started with cream background paper and added some brick stamping.  Kaisercraft always have great men's type ranges. That's the clock/cog paper. Then I scrounged around for anything else that would fit the theme.

Let's see what you can do. We would love to see your entry. There is a prize on offer for the winner.

November 2022 ARTastic double page DT layout

Check out this jungle themed display window for our ARTastic challenge inspiration this month.

I instantly saw a double page spread, so that's what I created. Mostly green, with some brown and jungle themed. I used paint, nuvo drops, kinda glitz, die-cuts and stickers. Plus one flair.

Here's my page.

I started with some green cardstock as my background. I chose a couple of different coloured green paints and some white and randomly drew my brush through the colours and then created some curved lines across each of my pages.  I added some nuvo drops and kindy glitz for added shine and interest.

I've matted each of the photos with brown so as to add that colour from the inspiration pic.

The twine is for the vines that monkeys swing through and if you look at the inspo pic you can see some of the "vines" do go across.

There is one pop of orange so I picked that colour up for my title. Appropriate given the photo subject, yes?

Then I've just added some die cut and sticker leaves, along with a little journalling.

Get your entry in.
