INSD fun!

Hi there!

Super quick share today as Cocoa Vanilla Studio are having a super fun competition over on their blog and all one has to do to enter is share their favourite creation that was made for INSD!!

I am still plugging away at a few challenges but I already know that this will be very high on the list of my faves for this weekend if it isn’t the top!!

Funnily enough too I have used product from the Made of Awesome range I have in my stash, which sadly, is depleting!! And just as a side note, I made this page before I saw CVS had this little competition going!

Here is my completed page and a couple of close ups!

Thanks so much for the chance Zoe! What an awesome prize! 

I hope you have liked my page and I will just quickly mention that was a labour of love!! That stitching took me a 1 1/2 hour episode of Orange is the New Black, an episode of The 100 and 1 1/2 episodes of The Vampire Diaries to complete!! But, I LOVE the finished page!

Happy scrapping!

November with Dusty Attic

Yikes!! November already!! My how this year is flying past!

Melinda here with you today sharing some pages from Hunter’s 2015 album, February to be exact!

I had so much fun with all the chippy pieces and paint!

I started with painting all of my chippy with Dusty In Colour Soot and then applied a coat of Clear Gloss Varnish and popped aside to dry while I got on with my background.

I have used almost entirely Australian manufactured and designed products on this layout as those papers and embellishments are from Cocoa Vanilla’s Made of Awesome range. I started with an exclusive cut file from The Cut Shoppe Let’s Cut Class 1 which I cut using my silhoutte and then mixed up a concoction of 4 Dusty In Colour paints to to match perfectly with the blue of that paper frame in the layers. The colours I used are Navajo White, Oceania, Faded Denim and Denim. I just plopped some colour onto a palette and mixed away until I got just the right colour! So much fun!

I then added some of the paint to some plastic packaging and some water and basically stamped/smooshed the packaging until I got the effect I was after. I love how this turned out! After that was dry I backed all the arrows that I had cut with some scraps of paper from the same range of papers.

I have used Chevrons Small – both the inside cut and the “left over” bits. And the title is from Mini Captions #6.

Here is one part of the “left overs” from Chevrons Small

And another.

I have used 3 page pebbles here too which I did paint VERY lightly so you can still see the etched details.

I have used one of the pebbles from this pack here. 

This pack here.

And this pack here. I think this is one of my all time fave’s too – I have been hoarding that too!!

While I was putting this layout together I discovered just how awesome the clear gloss varnish is too!! Obviously it leaves a beautiful layer of clear gloss but while it was out and I was playing it was the 1st glue I grabbed a few times and it really is awesome for that too!! When it sticks it’s stuck but you have a little moving time!!

Onto the facing page which is, of course, a PL style page 🙂

Again, all my chippy has been treated the same way and papers and stickers are from the same range.

Here is the title card that I had so much fun putting together – am loving getting inky and making a mess on my craft mat!!

Some more of the Chevrons Small and also the Typewriter ABC font.

And some close ups of all the titles on the photographs!
