Scrapping Outback August 15 challenge

Hello, hello!
Just wanted to share my sample for Scrapping Outback with you.
The challenge is follow this photo prompt:

My sample looks like this:

I used the following SO products:
 -WOW veneer word
- Coco Vanilla - Sugar and Spice - paper
- 2 Crafty Chipboard - Bubble Clumps -
- Prima Marketing Resin Frame
- 7 Dots Studio papers - Unknown Destination -

  I have another very fun tutorial for you to get inspired this month!

"From chipboard to stamp"


  This is what you will need:

- Craft foam (mine is very cheap and about 2mm thick)

- Acrylic Paints

- Chipboard - fun shapes -

- Heavy object to press chipboard into foam

- Heat Gun


1.Choose a piece of chipboard you would like 

to transform into a stamp, I am using WOW Honeycomb, it will make a gorgeous background stamp!

  2.Take a piece of foam a little bigger than your chipboard piece 

3. Heat foam up with heat gun - texture will change slightly and it will curl on the edge when ready -

4.Quickly grab your chipboard and press hard into the foam
I used a heavy object to help me press really hard.
The thicker the chipboard the better!

 Cut stamp closer to edge and stamp away! 
You can use ink or paint
Here is what my finished stamp looks like! I actually made a few! You could use words, letters or phrases too, don't forget to press them the wrong way so they stamp the word the right way!

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


That's it! So easy!

For those who follow me on Facebook you will know that I had a go at the Masters Comp again this year, unfortunately I was unsuccessful. I therefore will have a break from scrapbooking  so don't worry if you don't see me for a while. I am well and am working on my new garden and my new passion painting.

Thank you for stopping by!

Be happy!
