Hello scrappy friends, welcome to my blog on this Spring day.
Today I'm sharing a layout I created for the inaugural Scrap Matrix challenge.
I almost chickened out, because the challenge is the make a page about our Scrap space and mine is a total disgrace at the moment.
I'm in the middle of reorganising and it's not a pretty sight.
So I decided to tidy just one area, where I keep my mixed media stuff,
because that's what I enjoy the most right now.
I love experimenting without any specific goal in mind.
I was inspired by the messy photo; it's an accurate image of my s/crap room at the moment and that gorgeous neat scrap room; something I aspire to!
I used a Blue Fern paper for the background, Seaside Cottage, "Embark".
Most of the pieces behind the photo are from 7 Dots, Lost and Found, elements and stickers.
The quote stamps are by Dina Wakley - I stamped them and heat embossed them.
The heart stamping is from Ranger Dylusions.
I treated the chipboard pieces with gesso and gold spritzing ink,
they are from Blue Fern.
The texture was created with a Tim Holtz stencil and texture paste.
I dabbed some Nuvo Mousse over the top.
The little red wooden dog toy is on elastic and he jumps around when I push the bottom.
He's there to remind me to have fun, that playing is essential at any age
and that nothing needs to be perfect!
Thanks for calling in today - I appreciate the comments you leave - thank you.
