A New Venture!


I have a new venture!
I have decided to offer Roma locals the opportunity to learn scrapbooking with me, concentrating on mixed media techniques!
I have been dreaming about it for a long time, and I just thought to give it a try now that I have a really great area in my house dedicated to painting and scrapbooking! My first class starts this week-end and I have a couple of ladies booked in so I am very excited!!!
I will concentrate on one on one or small group of people, I think it is important to take the time to give advice and listen to each person.
I will see where this takes me...

So here are all the info, for anyone interested I am willing to travel too, just ask me and we can have a talk!

This is the upcoming class

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Scrapping!

Scrapping Outback May 15 Challenge!

Hello and welcome to our May "White with a Twist" Challenge....

So the challenge is:

Create a layout inspired by ALL the colours in this photo and you MUST use at least one piece of chipboard. (as Scrapping Outback is known for all its chipboard).

You must use WHITE combined with the colours above. You can use printed paper as long as these colours are the main focus of the paper. There can be other colours on the printed paper, but not too much to take away from the colours in the inspiration picture.

You can use anything to create these colours like mists, inks or paints. 

You can use a small amount of black/brown just for a little stamping, inking, journaling or just as a small accessory, however it is NOT to be the main focus of your layout.

You can use as little or a lot of each colour, but every colour or shade of that colour in the picture MUST be used. You can use varied shades of the colours - it depends on the inspiration that you get from the picture.

Create a layout following the above criteria

 After you have created a LO for the challenge please upload it to your blog, online gallery or Facebook page -  make sure you mention us and link back to our blog challenge.  Then add your challenge link to us using the correct Mister Linky on the right hand side of our BLOG.

Once you have done that just pop over to the SO FaceBook page and let us know you have entered our challenge - you can then link back to your own blog or FB page as well so we can all go and check out your creation.

Out of courtesy, please link your challenge entries back to the Scrapping Outback BLOG challenge or be sure to give credit to the Scrapping Outback challenge and if there is a sketch to follow please give credit to the sketch artist as well.

Please use your creation for our challenge only - if you choose to use it for other challenges as well, you will not be eligible  for the Scrapping Outback prize...

If you are winner be sure to grab your Challenge Winners Blinkie to add to your blog.

Thank you.

Due Date:  31st May 2015 11.59pm
Prize:  $15 shop voucher to spend in our store for the winning layout will be chosen by
 our design team :)

Here is my sample

"Cherish You"

The SO products used are:
- WOW title Crazy About You 
-  Kaisercraft Chevron Stencil 
- Kaisercraft Basecoat Paper
- Dusty AtticVine Flourish Large

Create some fun background by covering some patterned paper with Gesso first, it seals your background and therefore makes it really easy to work with other mediums like paint, sprays or watercolour.

I hope to see your entry this month!

Thank you for stopping by!
