Love Grows Here | The Studio Challenges


I loved working with our latest challenge at The Studio – because I got to work with my favourite colour – CORAL! Here’s what I made:

I decided to add a little lime green to the mix and I’m quite happy with the way the two colours blend. Here are some close up photo’s:

Beauty | CSI DT

Have a look at this gorgeous colour palette that Debbi has put together at CSI: Color Stories Inspiration:

Here is how I solved the case:

I used orange, cantaloupe, avocado green, white and teal. I was inspired by the stripey wall paper and the little tree on the hill – so I added a few fussy cut leaves and twigs. I also adore the scrolled legs of the little white table, so I used a heavily scrolled chipboard frame from 2 Crafty. I added a butterfly to fit in with the ‘creature’ theme and then I used a 2 Crafty cursive title, which I made in bright white to let it really pop.

Here are some close ups:

Sweetest Memories | CSI DT

These cold case files that Debbie sets out for us really are just great; I always head into the furtherest reaches of my stash to pull goodies out. Here is the latest challenge:

Though this image is a ‘busy’ one, my eye was drawn to that chair over and over. Then I remembered that chair ephemera piece that I have stuck away some where so out it came – at least it matched the colour scheme! I also popped some button stickers on and grabbed a pair of pretty chipboard pieces from my 2 Crafty stash!

I chose to work on a more plain (cream) background and then added bursts of colour using teal, lime green, kingfisher blue and yellow. Here are some close ups:

Follow them on their blog too, to get regular inspiring posts from my fellow DT members.

Magical | Mix It Up Challenge Blog

This month at MIUCB, we’d like to see what you create doing Anything Goes + Mixed Media.

For this challenge, I created this ethereal type layout of my daughter. I added some gesso and texture paste to the background and then I also used mists on my 2 Crafty chipboardwings and gauze; and I heat embossed the title.

Here are a few additional close ups:

My Heart is Full | CSI DT

I loved working with this case at CSI: Color Stories Inspiration.

No photo description available.

I felt that the inspiration image was ‘clean’, so I opted to stick to that when creating my layout. I used a plain white background, and then I added some woodgrain print, a camera and some labels. I used red, white, sky blue, yellow and grey on my layout.

My chippie circle frames are from 2 Crafty. I also added in some filmstrip ephemera to carry the theme of the camera’s across.

My journaling was to select my favourite picture and then say why. Well… my favourite pictures changes constantly! Whenever I have a new one of the 3 of us, it will become my favourite. Why? Because I have so few (it’s usually my partner and daughter or just my daughter whose photo’s get taken and / or featured) – so when I do happen to take one or have one taken, I love it!

Here are some close ups:

I have to say – I really enjoyed working with this challenge! Here’s what I made:

My chipboard pieces are all from 2 Crafty Chipboard.

It may seem that I used a limited colour palette, but the paper that I chose to work with is an absolute riot of colour – just as the mood board is.

Here are some closeups:

Dream | Off The Rails DT

This month at Off The Rails Scrapbooking, we have a beautiful Hippie inspired mood board for you to join in on:

Image may contain: 4 people

For this challenge, I was inspired primarily, by the colour scheme of the image in the lower right hand corner. To add to the hippie effect, I added some fussy cut feathers and flowers. I used a gorgeous 2 Crafty Chipboard Dandelion puff to add to my piece and I used one of their little titles too.

Here are a few close ups of this piece.

We would love you to join in on this challenge – remember that we have changed our set up to Facebook submissions!

Preserve Your Memories | Sketchy Boards

Head on over to Sketchy Boards this month for our grungy themed mood board and sketch challenge!

No photo description available.

As this had a graffiti feel to it, I decided to use grungy styled papers – especially as my background. I rotated the image once, anti-clockwise and I used a photograph taken at my mom’s recent 70th birthday, where she has photo-bombed us! I added in some chipboard circles from 2 Crafty chipboard.

And some closeups:
