I've made a card for Atlantic Hearts challenge
I used a woodgrain paper as my background and a tilted picture from Darkroom Door. The sentiment is also Darkroom Door. I glued 2 wood veneer flowers and used tiny dots as my highlighters.
On this layout for Lasting Memories, I used as many polkadots as I could find.
I misted the background white cardstock first with green.
The main paper on here has polkadots, the 3 punched flowers have polkadots,the brads in the centre of the flowers have polkadots,I added dots around the edges of the scalloped trim at the bottom and my title is matted on polkadots too. When I look closely, even the trees in the photo have polkadots.
Maybe I've gone dotty!
This was in London and I asked my daughter to do a "hug a tree" photo.
I've used this sketch on Atlantic Hearts challenge
The card is for my oldest Great Nephew who turns 21 in September. He loves red so my sentiment is in red mini letters but I also had the key background paper that I wanted to use.
Because I copied and pasted the required options, the whole post is highlighted in white! No idea why, sorry.
August 22nd - LM #562 - Team B - Sequence - This week I am giving you 3 options for your challenge:
Option #1 - Create a layout with a grid background -
Option #2 - Line up your photos in a row across your layout - this can be vertically, horizontally, or on the diagonal.
Option #3 - Show us a sequence of events in your photos - or now and then photos, or before and after photos.
I've chosen to do a sequence vertically featuring my love of washing up.
People think I'm nuts but I enjoy washing up and the warm water soothes my hands.
I've used a red doiley and blue mesh background plus a red and white patterned paper background. These were chosed because of the colour of the tongs and tupperware bowl.
The title is actually cut from the pack of "For the Record" papers I had in my stash.
To start with I followed clue 1 and found a dark green,a peach and a baby pink coloured papers.(All older)
I looked through embellishments and found a suitcase,a frame that says "collect Beautiful things,",3 pink tabs and a heart.I found 6 green buttons plus 2 reflective gems.
I found a green and white chevron bag.
I laced embroidery thread around the buttons.
I stacked 4 layers behind my photo.
On our recent trip to Kangaroo Island we went and did the Raptor Show and it was amazing. The hosts were very accommodating and the guides very informative. People of all ages were able to get up close and personal with raptors of all shapes and sizes from owls to Wedge Tail Eagles, if you are here it is a must do. We would do this again.
Our challenge is based on a design principle.To use the diagonal on your page!
I looked back for examples of how I used diagonals previously.
At Scrap YOUrself there is a new challenge.
I chose this photo of me being silly because it makes me smile.
I was on a holiday at Broken Hill in NSW and we were "acting the goat"(as mum used to say), just doing silly things. I was doing an Irish Jig in front of an old pub. Laughing, while I was doing it!
On my layout I have chosen to use crackle medium with yellow paint.Hence my title "cracked".
I chose yellow and purple as they are complimentary colours on the colour wheel. There's also black and white. The purple matches my dress.
I've made a card for Shopping our stash.
It is for a grandfather and I've found Poppy is a well used derivative for that. I used gold and yellows mainly on my card with a tiny frame in green. I also inked my 2 inch square with pinecone ink to age it.
Into the father's day box it goes.
Next card is for a sketch at Tuesday Morning sketches
My next layout uses a forged paper I made for a previous kit but it ended up back in my stash.
It is for the sketch at Sketches in Thyme
I've tilted mine 90 degrees so it looks like this
In fact I had 2 plaid corners I could use. So I simply traced around the originals and cut them out.
There is also a large flower in the kit and I happen to have a large stamp of a crysanthemum. I stamped a couple of those to add to my kit.
Both are simple ideas but add something to the look of a page.
Also from my kit was the olive green ribbon, the twine,and the 2 wood veneer leaves which I inked in pinecone.
This was a bird I saw standing on a wall near the bay at Concord. The lines of the bush in the photo add to the angles of the layout.
At Use Your Stuff this time they want us to be inspired by real life.
I kept it in manly colours and added a shaker box made with hardware pieces.

If you want to learn more about Kaisercraft's Heritage collection here is a You tube I found.
My first layout this month is featuring this collection.
I tore across top and bottom then inked with pinecone ink to age it.I adhered this to backing paper also Heritage collection.
Using a kaisercraft mask of a clock,I painted 2 clocks. I also stamped some smaller clocks using a rubber stamp I have from my teaching days.
Next I used layers of paper to mat my 2 photos. There was a plain olive in my kit plus another 2 heritage papers. I cut a postcard top from one and used it as a separate layer.
I used an olive chiffon ribbon along the bottom of my page.
My embellishments feature twine curled into a circle,wood veneer frames, cut our circles also from heritage collection, asterisks from alphas ,a small wood veneer word,
The kit this month is from Maikit 2021 (danipeuss.de)
