Scrap the Boys and Anna's Craft Cupboard Sketch

Well, what a hectic couple of weeks have I had! The Scrapbooking Convention was on again at the Brisbane Convention Centre over the Queen's Birthday long weekend and I was lucky enough to be a part of it this year. Ang and I helped out Nicole who owns Craft Queen and what fun we had! We were there from Friday for set-up until Monday night to see it all packed away again.

Then this weekend just passed, I was lucky enough to spend with my crafty bff's, crafting and laughing and eating all weekend! This weekend was very productive as far as challenges went! I think I managed to complete four. But I won't bombard you with all of them at once! Aside from that I managed another seven pages! And that was despite the procrastination and distractions!!

So let's get to it. First up, Scrap the Boys. This month the brief was to use a photo 5x7 or larger. I decided to go big, 8x10 big and I experimented to by printing onto vellum! So here is the finished result:

I kept if fairly simple and neutral, to let the photo shine. I love this photo of my brother with his son, I managed to be in the right place at the right time to catch this moment!

The next page for now is for Anna's sketch. This month the sketch looked like this:

And this is what I finished with:

I had some fun playing around with cut files from my Silhouette and then colouring them with watercolour paints.

Well, I think that will do for now! But rest assured there is more to come!

Til next time,
