Southern Girls Challenge # 77 - Make Believe

Hi everyone.
Just wanted to share with you the layout I created for the Southern Girls Challenge Blog for August.
The theme was make believe, and I chose to use a photo from about 10 years ago of Blake inventing a new use for supermarket shopping bags!!
I am not sure they were all that successful at keeping him dry in the pouring rain....but he had heaps of fun trying it out!

For this page, I used a lot of mixed media. I created this page using a heavy card with a gessoed background, then added texture paste which I stamped into while wet, and finally lots of spray inks. I then used the papers from the my mind's eye collection, kate and co - oxford lane; to create more layers to hold the photo. The large chipboard star was covered with "lightbulb" washi tape ( courtesy of Chellie Keenan.....thanks Chellie!!!), and accented with glossy accents on the bulb area. A sprinkling of sequins, and a title from thickers, and I call this page "done".

Thanks for looking. And don't forget to share your creations on the blog as well to be up for a wicked prize!

Exciting news!

It's been an exciting few weeks for me.

TodayArtfull Crafts are announcing their design team for the next twelve month term......and I am as proud as punch to let you know, that I was successful in gaining a spot of this team of super talented ladies. I am really looking forward to working with these gals to provide you with scrapbooking and card making eye candy over the next year.

The next twelve months is going to be a busy one, and you will see regular updates on my blog, as well as the artfull crafts blog of scrapbooking projects I have been working on. There will be regular posts on projects, tips and tricks, and just plain old scrappy talk.

Of course with any new design team announcement, there is always a design team farewell, and I would like to thank the girls who are leaving the team this year, you certainly are a hard act to follow!

You can follow Artfull Crafts on their Facebook Page ...........give them a "thumbs up" , and of course the team will be regularly contributing artfull splendour on the  Artfull Crafts Blog . There are heaps of prizes to be won this week, so head on over to the blog and check it all out.

I will be back soon to share with you the projects I have been working on, and to share a few of my favourites  from the last year or so. See you all soon
