The challenge at Show Us your Stuff, this month, is to use mixed media. I have used stamps and varying brands of inks and watercolours. My handmade item is my stamped and coloured mermaid embellishment.
Love the sketch at Scrap the Girls this month! I have been getting a little bored with my style and wanted to try something different, so I got out my stamps (some I have had for about 10 years!) and the Ken Oliver Liquid Metals that I bought at last years SENZ.
I am going to look at all my stamps in a new light!
I am Guest designing this month at 123 Challenge Blog. Their challenges are awesome: 1 sketch, 2 words to use and 3 colours. Several of the family flew over 'the ditch' from Auckland to Sydney and had a wonderful long weekend celebrating our granddaughter's 1st birthday. Her little cousins loved their first ever ferry ride!
I hope you will pop over to the blog and play along!
I have combined this layout, of a wonderful long weekend in Sydney (from NZ) with family, with The Studio Challenges and the Facebook colour challenge at Funky Flairs. Our 2 granddaughters just loved their first trip on a ferry across Sydney Harbour.
The Studio Challenge Tic Tac Toe board: I used the middle column; Flair, 2 Alphas, Blue
A layout using the August 15th sketch at Stuck?! Sketches. I was in the mood to do something for a change and use some neglected supplies, so got my Minc out and my Ken Oliver Liquid Metallics
and Color Bursts. I have also used a Charm's Creation heart and a Funky Flair.
