Scrap Africa Challenge 24 - Snowflakes, Glitter and Masking.

Wow welcome to December. I have been a terrible blogger these days but life has just been super chaotic. I have barely had any chance to step foot into my scrap room and probably won't until after Christmas when we return from our holidays. Since writing this post we have since set out on a 3 day road trip to Darwin. I love road trips and haven't traveled the roads that way since i was a teenager. My partner has never set foot into the NT at all so it will be a good experience for him lol. So expect plenty of photos when i get back and very little of me for now.

So with that said it brings us to another challenge over at Scrap Africa.  The challenge this month is snowflakes, glitter and masking. I must admit i am not a really big fan of glitter and snowflakes. Glitter because it can be super messy and snowflakes well because it really never gets that cold here. But i loved the challenge.

I had lots of fun using my water colour pencils and my honeycomb stencil to start, and then i used a Prima mask with texture paste. At this point i sprayed several mists all over and once dry began to build up my page. You cant see it too well but the snowflakes all have glitter on them and the title does too. The photo is of my youngest wearing the same jumpsuit her older sister wore. It is a beautiful lemon colour and super cute.

So that is it from me for now. I hope you get to have a lovely holiday with plenty of time to scrap. xx
