Breathtaking - Karen McLaughlin

Hi A2Z Fans.  Karen with you today showing you a very simple read and white page.  I have used a few lovely pieces of chipboard.  The first being the title - Breathtaking which I have painted and covered with liquid pearls.  I also used one of the swirly corners which I just placed alongside the photo.  The last flourish I used is called the Doodlet 25 which I cut in half to make it look bigger and placed under my photo.  Thank you for looking.

Hi Crafters

Sharing a new layout "It's a boy thing"

I adore this chipboard - it's just perfect for my scrapping style.

You'll find the chippie in the A2Z Scraplets store here.

For the chipboard - I've added white gesso then coloured with the Distress Crayons - sealing it with clear embossing powder.
I coordinated the colours with the fabulous "You Rock" collection from Cocoa Vanilla Studio.

A Moment Captured

Hello Lovelies xx

Tanya here again to share another layout that I have done using an old family 
photo from my wedding. Sadly my dad and two of his brothers are no longer with us, 
which makes it even more important to scrapbook our old photos.

The above chipboard is Birds On A Line. They come in a set of 2. There are 6 birds on each row. I cut mine down to 4 birds and I have coloured them with Art Alchemy wax colour and then embossed them using my cuttlebug machine and a embossing folder to give them some texture.

The chipboard I have used is A Moment Captured  as shown below. I have painted it with 
Art Alchemy acrylic paint and I then embossed it using clear embossing powder to give it 
a little extra gloss. 

Have a wonderful week, hopefully you find the time to scrapbooking during all this 
pre christmas craziness xx

Father & Daughter by Judith Armstrong

Good morning and welcome to the weekend. Not long now until Christmas. I am getting through some more of my wedding photos from nearly 25 years ago!

I have used the A2Z Scraplets title - Father and Daughter Scripty Word. I have used Bo Bunny Gold Pearlescents to cover it. This is a bit like a thinnish texture paste in a pen. It gives a two tone colour where there are thicker parts.

I also used the Bo Bunny Pearlescents to cover my A2Z Scraplets Floral Corner 2810 Small.  You actually get 2 of these but I only needed one for this layout.

Thanks for looking.

Good Morning , Mary here . Today will be my last post as a DT member for A2Z Scraplets. I have loved working with the beautiful chipboard and being part of the team. I am very grateful for the opportunity .
Today I have created a layout with the "Summers Here" chipboard piece and nothing meant more than Summer is Here when my children were little than the annual holiday with the country cousins to visit Granddad. It meant swimming in the pool , going to the beach, waiting for the tune of Mr Whippy and the bell of the baker van.

To treat the chipboard I painted first with gesso and then I painted the piece with watered down Distress Oxide in Peacock feathers, once it was try I then dapped over the piece in places with the Peacock Feathers undiluted.

Thank You for calling by, don't forget to visit the shop for all your chipboard needs and we would love to see your entries in the current challenge which is Recycle , Reuse, Repurpose. I have used a netting and muslin on my layout .
You can find and dowload your entries on our facebook page.
Finally a Big Congrats to the new DT Members that will create beautiful Inspiration for you.
Happy Creating
Mary x

"Pensive Moment" Scrapbook layout by Louise

Hi Crafters

I'd like to share a new layout "Pensive Moment"

This page started with the background paper.
It's from the Project Life "Azure" 12x12 collection.
I trimmed out some areas of it and highlighted the background using washi tape and
Colour Blast Spray in Saffron.
I've applied the spray to a stencil, over the craft mat, then flipped the stencil and pressed the pattern onto the white cardstock background - I love this effect.

This Pensive Moment Chipboard is such a great fit for the photo.
I've covered it with white gesso, then coloured with Distress Crayon and then finally - lightly sprayed with Colour Blast Spray "Indigo".

With such a busy background, I didn't need to add too many embellishments, so I chose some simple stamping, cotton thread and a wood veneer.

Thanks for visiting.
Happy Scrapping.
