Monday Moment

A couple of scrapbook pages to share today. Both the result of Shimelle's Layer on Layer on Layer class.

 And since I started this page by stamping a line of rainbow splats down the left hand side I'm going to pop it into the challenge at QKR Stampede where it's Anything Goes. I'm not sure if this extends to scrapbook pages but as I couldn't see any requirement for a card in their rules I'm giving it a go.

The focus for this first page was the placement of the photo and embellishments. This one uses just half of the space. This is one of my all time favourite photos. My oldest son was helping to host an open mic at a local pub and his son, my grandson, joined in with his harmonica.

Quite a lot of layers were added to the top of this page and a few at the side and bottom to make that magic triangle our eyes seem to love.

Papers: Craft Sensations, basic paper; Simple Stories, Crafty Girl; Echo Park, Country Drive & little Girl; AC, Garden cafe
Stamps: SU, Gorgeous Grunge
Inks: SU, tempting turqoise, melon mambo, crushed curry; Miste Huey's Color Mists, sunshine
Enamel dots from my stash
Stickers: AC Vicki Boutin & maggie Holmes

My next page features my youngest grandson and the placement focus was down the middle.  I broke out my new pack of Cocoa Vanilla papers and embellishments that had just arrived - I'm swooning at these and being very brave using them before they've had time to make it to my boxes of stash!

Mmm, I think his mum and dad might question the sleep part! He's not the best at sleeping and they're both walking around like zombies at the moment. But he is totally awesome and I adore him!

The embellishment layers on this page are down the sides, one on the left and two on the right, to keep in line with the central placement challenge.

Papers: Cocoa Vanilla, Boys Rule
Stickers: Cocoa Vanilla, Boys Rule; Cosmo Cricket, tiny Text; Basic Grey, Carte Postale; Kaisercraft; Ali edwards; Simple Stories, #Whatever; MAMBI chips; The Happy Planner, puffy stickers
Enamel dots from my stash

Thanks for looking today, it's been so good to have your company.

And keep crafting!

  1. Jane, I've admired your CAS creations for over a year. Now I learn that you also make such beautiful scrapbook pages. These are amazing! (And that fact that you can excel at CAS and also these layered works of art is really impressive!) Thanks for sharing your art with QKR Stampede. DT Kathy
