{ScrappingClearly} Home Sweet Home

Hey there ScrappingClearly fans, Melinda here with you today sharing a page I made using this month’s mood board as inspiration.

In case you haven’t yet seen it, here it is

And here is my take on it

I have used the Kaiser Craft Oh La La collection for this and was really inspired by a chat I had had with my Mother In Law about quilting and came up with the idea of the triangles into the chevron design! 

I modernised the whole patchwork effect with a little mixed media – namely I grabbed the Cantaloupe Liquid Pearls Kylie sent me in my last kit, added that to a little packaging and then spritzed with water – viola! Watercolour in a beautiful orange-y/gold tone to go perfectly with the mood board! I also added in a few very subtle sprinkles of colour with the Art Anthology Colour Spray in Avocado.

Today being the 1st of the month gives you plenty of time to get your own entries in for both this challenge and the sketch challenge for April – though who can seriously believe it is April already?!

Head over here to the FB group for the challenge albums and to see what everyone else is busy working on!

I do have a process video for this page – if it doesn’t load straight away, please come back and try again – I kinda got my dates mixed up for this project – oopsies!!

Anyways, I’ll leave you with a couple of close ups and a product list, if you have any questions, please dont hesitate to ask!

Supply List:

Kaiser Craft Ooh La La Collection Pack – there are none left in stock BUT there is the 6 1/2 x 6 1/2″ paper pad which would work perfectly as well
Kaiser Craft Ooh La La Bits and Pieces Pack
Cantaloupe Liquid Pearls
Art Anthology Colourations Colour Spray – Avocado

Thanks, as always for stopping by and happy scrapping! I hope April is a super productive scrappy month for you all!



A Creative Journey – Part 3

Hello and welcome!!

I’ve stopped in today to share with you my art journal spread for this month! I was lucky enough to play along in Audrey’s beautiful journal and had so much fun with the “do whatever you feel like” theme!

Here is my completed page
And here are a couple of quick close up’s!

I have used a bunch of different products in the background but started off with an all time fave colour combo of mine in mind: Colour Shine in Citron, Navy and Teal 🙂

A layer of gesso, some of that cool tape (I can NEVER remember what it’s actually called!!), texture paste through a stencil, background stamping and then COLOUR using my mists and also a bit more colour using another stencil and some Colour Paste by Colour Blast in Singin the Blues!

I have also added some of the Tim Holtz distress crackle in rock candy and then added some drops of navy colour shine.

I grabbed a couple of wood veneer from my stash and embossed them using a white with sparkles embossing powder and also those fun star and chevron pieces made by Charms Creations 🙂 

I’ve got my next journal sitting on my desk awaiting some different mediums, what am I going to do I wonder?! The theme is “A day in my life” which currently would be chaotic!! Haha, school holidays 😉

Anyways, I will share when it’s done. Perhaps even another process vid 😉

Thanks for stopping by, I really do appreciate the time taken and the comments left, they truly make my day each time I get that email!!

Happy scrapping!



When 2 Become 3

Hi there!!

Just popping in today with a super quick share of a page I created the other day using a fun free silhouette cut file from The Hip Kit Club which you can get here.

I totally got the idea of the cut file like this from this YouTube video by the very talented Raquel Bowman! I love how she has laid out all the hearts on the diagonal across the background and took the XO from the file I used, copied, pasted and resized. As I went I welded each XO to the last one 🙂 Love how this turned out!

I cut the file on gesso’d white cardstock and then sprinkled water all over it with a paintbrush. While the water was still wet I sprayed some Heidi Swapp colour shine in both Navy and Teal onto my craft mat, added a little water to make it runnier and then sprinkled the mist all over the wet cut file. I love the watercolour effect I achieved and that there are still bits of white peeking through all over the file!

I have used papers from the Maggie Holmes Shine collection and also some of the florals from the Open Book collection (a couple of which had been digital files that I have printed and cut also using my Cameo). I added some tiny word stickers from a Tim Holtz sticker book I have and added some silver stitching to each. A tiny bit of journalling and some black Heidi Swapp colour shine as sprinkles to finish the LO off!

Here are a few close ups! I can’t believe that this photo was taken over 6 years ago already – time sure does fly!

That’s it for me for today! I had a heap of fun putting this page together!

Happy scrapping and happy Sunday 🙂
