So, I have been doing a little scrapping lately, but not as much as I would have liked to. Was sick for a bit, still recovering actually, and just not inclined to do anything.... On the mend now, thank goodness!
Thought I would start with the Scrap the Boys challenge for this month, which was to profile your boy/man. I just happened to get the Teen Boy Project Life cards recently (like I need more of these!) and found the perfect one to document my Liam at almost 10.
Played with a new technique on this one, which kind of worked. The idea was to lay down some texture paste and stamp a background stamp into it to create an interesting background. The stamping didn't work as well as I was hoping. Not sure if the texture paste was too "thin" and wet or the stamp too complicated. Still a technique in progress I think!
Have also played along with the D'Lish Scrap Suite Cyber Crop that was launched last weekend. There was four challenges and I have managed to complete all four!
Challenge 1 - Use stamps
Well, to say this one excited me is probably and understatement! My next question was "which ones"?! I decided to try and create the kraft, white, black and red backgrounds that I am seeing around at the moment, loving this look (think Kaiser Craft Mix and Match collection).
I really enjoyed playing with some of my Kellie's Stamps (diamond, plus and words), also stamped the title and journalling spot.
Challenge 2 - use monochrome embellishments
This one took a little more thought. I ended picking photos first and the rest came together. Not a colour that I usually use though!
Lucky that I had some glorious purple (in the right shade and all!) embellies from D'Lish!! Love these photos of Liam and Alex too!
Well, I will leave it there for now. I will be back in a day or two with the other two challenges.
