{ScrappingClearly} This Made Me Laugh ~ Scrapbook Layout

Hi there, today I’m here with my take on the very fun May 2017 mood board for ScrappingClearly. This was also designed by the very talented Peg and after much deliberation I came up with a fun page that I am really happy with!

First up, the mood board

And here is the page I created

This is a photo of hubby from our honeymoon (back in 2008) and one of the King Prawns we enjoyed at one of the places we ate out at. I chose this photo because I really wanted to challenge myself to somehow incorporate that fish!! Easy enough to run with the colours but man that fish stumped me for a while! My mind started wandering and wandered right along to this exact photo and the story I wanted to tell that goes along with it. My husband DOES NOT eat prawns!! Haha! But this night I think between the 2 of us we ate 2 or possibly 3 of these King Prawns and we both loved them!

Here you can see all that messy fun in the background!! I love how it came together and I used the awesomely cool and fun Scribble Sticks by Dina Wakely in Ruby, Tangerine, Lemon and Night. These things, if nothing else, are super fun to work with. I watched another scrappers tutorial process video which gave me a couple of ideas but I did play a bit too to get the feel of how best they work! And indeed, dipping the scribble stick into some water and scribbling onto the page was the best way to get a vibrant colour!
Oh, and I did apply a quick coat of white gesso to help the colours move.

I’ve also used some of the fun watercolour stickers by Vicki Boutin, the arrows and the word Laugh. Love how they came out, however, a heads up, don’t add LOTS of water, the paper will pill up!! Lesson learned 😉

I have used the gorgeous Teresa Collins Nine & Co range for all my embellishing and all the paper layers. Oh, and that cute camera paper clip by American Crafts.

There is a process video for this page, just click below and enjoy!

That’s it for me for today, so have fun and remember you still have a little over a week to get your entries in for both the sketch and the mood board challenges!!

Thanks for stopping by,

{ScrappingClearly} Week 14 2017

Hi and hello my scrappy friends!! It is Melinda here with you today and I am sharing a PL spread I have put together using the GORGEOUS Teresa Collins Nine & Co range available in the store!!

I chose this particular week to use this range with as I had printed the title card and had edited the orange text onto the photo and the colours in this range match perfectly!!

Here are both pages together

And each page separately

And here is the title card that as soon as I took the photo I knew I was going to use it in this composition and I LOVE how it came together!

I have used my WRMK Typecast Typewriter for all of my journalling, sometimes I love the change it brings to my pages so am super keen to whip it out!!

I haven’t added a great deal of embellishment but I have used some of the cut apart cards for journalling and even cut some of the elements out of the cards for embellishing!

I really love how this card came together, I think it is maybe my favourite card of this spread!! 

Though, I do love, love, love the story behind this photo!!

Anyways, that’s it for me for today!! I hope you find a way to document your everyday in a way that makes you happy! 

Thank you, as always, for stopping by and have a fabulous day filled with lots of scrappy fun!!

{ScrappingClearly} Enjoy The View ~ May 2017 Sketch Challenge

Hi there ScrappingClearly fans, Melinda here with you today and I am sharing my take on the very fun May sketch challenge!

Here it is if you haven’t seen it

I have changed it up a little and turned it onto it’s side so my page is more like this

I also worked with a bigger photo and a less layers but love, love, love how this page turned out in the end!

I have used lots of pieces from the beautiful Teresa Collins Nine & Co range for this page and this stunning sunset photo from Easter 2017.

As you can see I have done some mixed media in the background and have used some beautiful Colour Blast Shimmer Sprays to create that fun, water-colour-y, sunset-y colour scheme.

And for title more Colour Blast goodies – this time Bling and Punch Embossing Powders. Oh, so pretty the way these 2 colours melted and mixed together ❤ 

For a few extra details I have added a number of the brads, trimmed up a little from each edge (this kinda had to happen – you can see what happened in my process video 😉 ) and mounted onto a patterned paper from the collection and I have literally matched the stitching from the sketch onto my layout using gold thread.

There is a process available if you would like to see the whole page come together – the hiccups and all 😉 Haha!! Just click on the button below and off you go!

I hope you enjoy my process and I hope you are inspired by the sketch and all of the DT samples to get your own entry in! Remember, you have until the end of the month to get your entries in for a voucher to spend in the store!

Happy scrapping, till next time!
