Just a few shares!!

Hi everyone hope we are all having loads of scrapping time? I have been attempting to scrap, note the word attempt! We have had a very busy week but a lot of fun as well. One of the highlights was the show, which was 8 hours of fun, so i hopefully will get around to scrapping those photos soon. I even have the perfect paper all ready to go, the new Echo Park Everyday Eclectic by Allison Kreft range. I can't wait to use it. I also was a fav over at Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge, along with a few other talented ladies which you should pop over and check out, and i won the July Blog Sketch over at Scraptherapy. I have completed a few pages over the past week. The first two pages were done using palettes from over at The Color Room. I always have so much fun doing these because they get me out of my comfort zone. Palette #121 was to use Blueberry, Tangerine, Watermelon and a colour of my choice. I chose Black. I am really loving using alot of black to matt on my pages as i feel it makes the colours pop off the page. I used alot of Prima goodness on this page and a few of my scraps as well.

 A little close up. I totally love my little birdie from the Prima Doodle-Deux range!!

Here is the palette i used.

Palette #121-His Room The Scrap Cake

The other page is using palette #122. Palette #122 was inspired by the talented Ingvild Bolme. I had so much fun with this. I doodled my title and pretty much around everything and then coloured in with watercolour pencils. All the stars were traced and cut out by hand and i added some texture by using some texture paste along with my Crafters Workshop template. I also even made myself use ribbon, i have so much ribbon but hardly use it so i am trying to make a conscious effort to use it.

Here is the palette i used.

Lastly i created a page which made it onto the Watch List over at CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration.  I had so much fun creating this page and reminiscing about my childhood. For my testimony i journaled about my childhood. I found a newspaper clipping of myself taken over 20 years ago and as soon as i saw it i was immediately taken back to that day. For my evidence i used distressing, bricks, melt/drip, metal, hinges, 4 types of pattern paper and brads. I had tried to limit my embellishments to the centre of the page but couldn't help adding them all over my page.

Here is the case file i worked with.

Well that is it from me for now, TFL, i am off to try and scrap a little more.
