I was delighted to be asked to be the 15th June guest designer for Stuck!? Sketches. This was a sketch challenge. I love this photo of my daughter and grand-daughter after an afternoon swimming at Lake Hume.
I hope you have enjoyed my version of the challenge.
This month the challenge for 123 Challenge blog is White, Love and bling. I have created a page using the Scrapberries, Cherished Jewels Collection and then added the white accents and bling. I think that this is my new favourite page. Pop over to their blog and check out how the other design team members interpreted the challenge and then Try the challenge yourself.
I was browsing through the Kaisercraft blog when I found their challenge for May. The challenge was a Kaiser Bingo. Choose the letter and match with something that to use on the page. I used P for paper, D for die and F for flower.In my stash I had the Kaisercraft paper range Cottage Rose which suited a pretty photo that I had of Chloe eating a cupcake that she had helped make and decorate. I spritzed the backgound after I had flicked the page with water. This created a water mark effect. Then I used a Kaisercraft script stamp and over stamped the spritzing. Just a simple background but enough to give a nice segue for the papers from the Cottage Rose collection that I had distressed and inked.The Kaiser die...lattice gave an interesting feature to blend in with the photo and papers. A flag banner and some bling and flowers completed the page.
And just a feature of a section of the page.
I hope you have enjoyed my page.Cheers and Happy Scrapping. Heather Bensley.
I just loved the colour pallette and the sketch this month at D-lish Scraps. I have had this photo for a while and I have been waiting for something special to do with it.
This challenge was perfect and I love the way it has turned out.
This weekend I am at a wonderful scrapbook retreat in the gorgeous town of Bright in North East Victoria.Vibrant autumn colours, mist on the mountains and a nip in the air. What a wonderful ambience for scrapbooking.
The team at Stuck!Sketches have challenged us with a great sketch for the May 15 challenge. I chose a lovely summery happy snap of Noah and used the Cocoa Vanilla You Rock collection.
Thanks for taking the time to look at my page.
Cheers and Happy Scrapping. Heather Bensley.
This month the challenge at White With 1 is to use deepest black. I decided on the old addage ....less is more. So I chose a couple of Kaisercraft dies that were a bit interesting and used the Kaisercraft black glitter card stock. To soften the background I spritzed and then stamped over the top. That was the basis of my page.
The with the addition of a flower, some berries and twine it all came together. I mounted the photo with a very fine blue border and then double mounted with the black glitter cardstock. I was happy with the result because the photo still remains the hero of the page.
Happy scrapping and thank you for taking the time to look at my page.
Cheers. Heather Bensley
