Showing off my WOW projects

I have a few pages to share with you today, this month is simply flying past and I've realized that my blog was lacking a little WOW factor.

I have been busy scrapping away but I have been a little slack remembering to share my projects here on my blog. We did a recent trip to Victoria to show Harrison the snow. The short trip was a big hit and I managed to get plenty of photos along the way.

My first page features some fabulous Wood Veneer pieces the  Ampersand and the title piece So Awesome were left naked to compliment the colour palette.

The Messy Star chipboard frame has been simply covered with gold ink and used to frame his golden smile.

Snow & Sunshine

The second page is a beautiful snap of my Mum with Harrison and how's the amazing back drop of Lake Mountain.

I have used the 6x6 Background chipboard panel as a feature behind the photo. It was covered with gold ink first and then randomly coated with gold embossing powder.

WOW July Releases

Lots of July new releases to share with you before the August new releases hit the shelves. Always love WOW's amazing products, but July hit a brand new high, the designs were awesome.

OK first up, a fun layout of Mister 10 and his cousin. I decided I had nothing better to do at the time but cut out little people, seriously loose my mind sometimes LOL!

Happy Days 

Features Bloom Pack and Happy days dark wood veneer title.

I love the colour in the dark wood veneer, so a simple coat of Dimensional Magic was all that was needed

 photo _DSC0004_zpsfe1cf7c5.jpg

Parts of the Blooms were inked using numerous shades of green blended together, the tips were covered with Stickles and then a blob of Dimensional Magic to highlight the Stickles.

The next page is a gorgeous photo of the boy.

You rock

A few different chipboard pieces put together on this page to give it a real grunge feel.

The title piece You rock designed by Tarrah McLean has been base coated with ink, then the word 'you' has been finished with Glossy Accents and the 'rock' has a thick layer of Stickles.

 photo _DSC0014_zpse0874b60.jpg

Loved these Messy Arrow Frames. It was based with gesso first and then inked with a soft green. The Arrow parts have been coloured with a black texta and then a final coat of Glossy Accents.

 photo _DSC0013_zps554bdd9f.jpg

My very favourite pieces on the page, the Large Plumbing Pipes. I have cut the chipboard in half to place either side of the photo and covered it with pinecone ink as the base. The playing again with my Metallic Rubs adding different colours and highlights to the chipboard. A final coat of Glossy Accents to finish.

Stuck?! Sketches July 15th Reveal

Sharing the second July sketch for Stuck Sketches today. I just love doing multiple photo sketches.
We have also partnered with The Studio Challenge site for this sketch and their colour challenge.




So the colour palette helped to decided what photos I was using for this sketch. Pretty sure the boy would not be happy if I had scrapped him, so the nieces got to feature again. I decided to flip the sketch on to it's side to suit my photos.

Also featured are some of the July new release chipboard pieces from WOW
