Off the Rails Scrapbooking March Challenge

Back again! I have decided to have a go at the Off the Rails Scrapbooking challenge, which was using a mood board and sketch. So here it is:



Now first I have to say, the colour palette is so not me! I am so not a browns kind of girl. Also I realise that my colours are probably a tad warmer than compared to the originals. So keeping this in mind, I got my Tim Holtz head on and started!


All in all, I am fairly happy with the result. I used lots of stamping and inking and water colour crayons to create and colour the background. But I have to say I am in love with the metallic Distress Stains! I used the antiqued bronze one to colour my doily and it looks like it has been leafed in copper!


Of course I had to add a Charms Creations piece, and what better than a chevron with book paper, it perfectly suited the tones and colours in the page.


Love this cut file from Wilna Wurstenberg. It was in a set hashtags-1 I think. I cut it out of water colour paper and then used my water colour crayons to colour and blend.


How cute are these little hessian butterflies?! They came from D-lish Scraps, from the Little Birdie range. The little bits tucked under the photo were Tim Holtz stamps , and the torn washi strips came from some old Prima collection (I think!).

So, there you have it, a very "not me" page!

Thanks for stopping by.
