White .. with 1 November Creative Team .. Niagara

I had a ball playing with Niagara this month and had the perfect image for it.
Its a pic of someone I love very much doing his amazing job as a photojournalist for the defence force. For security reasons (much like a dentist lol) I had to blur his face out but you get the idea still. He looks damn handsome in his service dress uniform. Pic was taken earlier this year in Belgium at the Anzac Day celebrations to comemorate 100 years since WW1. You can see some of his amazing work on the defence force you-tube channel if your interested.

A quick breakdown of the embellishments used:

SUYS October Layout ..

The Challenge for October was based off a mood board. As soon as I saw the board I knew what I was doing and it was not going to be very detailed! 

A quick roll with some textured paint in 2 different colours. Added some clear gesso using a dot circle for more texture and I cut up a bubble circle layer from The Resin Rainbow and glued it on. That was it! 

Now that you have seen mine, don't forget to check out the rest of the design teams work and give it a go too!

September SUYS DT layout ..

Welcome to September! .. This year is just flying by way to fast! .. 
This month we are using this super easy sketch, designed by Krisy, along with mixed media in our DT layouts. Not that mixed media is much of a challenge for me. 
Also don't forget to include your handmade item!

The winner of the challenge for September will receive an awesome prize pack from DT member Krisy! 

Krisy shares her art under the name Popleopod. You can find her on Facebook and Instagram.

Here is my contribution, it started with some gesso on the background, then I added some gorgeous minty thick washi tape and flowed some jade acrylic paint in swirls on the background. Added some chevron acetate and lots of goodies from my real/mint stash. 

I then layers plenty of resin craft embellishments from The Resin Rainbow in teal to make the picture pop. Don't ever be afraid of mixing your colours, sure they were not all the exact same colour, but they are all part of he green colour family so they all blend in beautifully! 

Here are the supplies from the page:
Paper Flowers by Delish Scraps. 

Now that you have seen mine, go check out what the rest of the DT have done and have a go yourself.

White.. With 1 August challenge - magenta purple

I will start by saying I'm not a fan of purple at all. Too dark for me. I'm all about the bright colour's, lots of layers and plenty of texture! .. 2 out of 3 on this layout was there!

So to rid myself of the darkness, I rolled on a layer of burgandy paint mixed with gesso, then i toned it down with plenty of white paint mixed with golden gel mediums 'glass bead gel' mixed into it. It came out a messy, grundy, bumpy mess. 

Then it was time for some tyre track circles using big circular hand sweeps on the page & Flutterby Designs black acrylic paint and i have added plenty of layers using bits from my stash and my store - The Resin Rainbow.

Items used: (click on the words to go straight to that product in the store/s)
Celtic lace resin border (cut into 3 parts) by The Resin Rainbow

SUYS July Challenge - blue / winter

This month at SUYS took me a long way out of my comfort zone!  .. I don't work with Blue on a big scale like this - ever!  so this one had a me little bit stumped until I figured out i could make it my own!

So this was the challenge this month! 

and this was what I came up with!  .. certainly no snow or cold weather when we took this picture of us all in the pool in Malaysia earlier this year!  - hence the title 'no snow here'.

Products used: (click on the link to go to the items or website)
Snowflake Decals are a cut up Heidi Swapp mask from at least 10 years ago. I misted with them and then cut them up to use as well. 

Now that you have seen mine, go check out the rest of the DT's amazing work and get cracking on your own!  you have 16 days left to enter!  

Happy Scrapping!
