Scrapping Outback July Challenge and a tutorial!

Hello! Hello!
Just wanted to share Scrapping Outback July challenge, those colours are to die for! So inspiring!!!!
You can find all the details here.

This is the photo prompt:

Here is my take:


I used the following SO products:
 - Coco Vanilla - Sugar and Spice - 
- Websters Pages - Beautiful Chic -
- Prima Marketing - Cigar Box Secret Flower -
- WOW Mini Scroll Set #3
- 2 Crafty - Bubble Clumps -
- Twiddleybitz - Basic Arrows -

  I have a very fun tutorial for you to get inspired to think outside the box!  Here it is:

  This is what you will need:

- Gelli Plate

- Acrylic Paints

- Brayer

- Deli Paper + Cardstock

- Chipboard - fun shapes -

- Acrylic Block

Place Gelli Plate on acrylic block

 (I am using a small 3''X5'' plate as a stamp on my background repeating the prints to create fun effect on a 12x12 cardstock piece)

1.Cover gelli plate with both colours using brayer, place chipboard on wet paint:


2.Place deli paper over and press to remove some paint:


3.Reveal first print:

4.Remove the chipboard pieces, they have been painted in the process:

 This is what your plate looks like now, it is ready for stamping on another sheet:

5.Using plate as a stamp press onto clean sheet of deli paper, I got 3 groovy prints out of this one:

I used that process to create my layout this month, here is a close up of my background:

I toned my background down with some Gesso, just enough so you can still see all the chipboard outlines underneath!

I used lots of different chipboard pieces too, including the scrolls that I actually used around my photo!


Thank you so much for visiting and I hope I got you inspired to create with your chipboard!

Happy Scrapping!
