February 2018 Challenges

Hi Everyone, and welcome to our February challenges, our DT has 2 great challenges to help inspire you!

Challenge 1 -  Karen's

Create a double layout  would love to see 4 photos and die cut embellishments.   Your choice in how and what you use to create some dimension on the layout,  for my page I used liquid pearls with a die cut stencil I made with my Cricut Expression machine 
I used 4 summer photos and the following supplies;                                
Swimmingly Stripe 
Aquatic Fun
Sea Explorers 
Frames and Tags 
Card Stock  Bazzill - Swiss Dots -Rip Tide 

Photos have been matted with Echo Paper Under the Sea Collection 

Seaweed has been done by a Die Cut from my 

Cricut Cartridge then filled in with liquid pearls.
 Die cut seaweed used over the top of my pearl seaweed 
then I added a couple fussy cut fish to the seaweed cluster on 
each page
Sea Explorers Frames and Tags

I loved this range it was beautiful to work with 
and fitted my Summer photos photos perfectly!

Challenge 2 - Sketch Challenge

Hello and Welcome to my challenge for February.

Donna has created this wonderful sketch for you to use and interpret how you like. Flip it, turn it or simply follow the design as you see it but use it as your inspiration. 

Here is my take on the sketch

I have used the gorgeous Echo Park papers from their Under the Sea Collection
which can be found in the Mystical Scrapbooks Store

 To add some texture I have used some stone pebbles.
Anchor charm is from my stash.

 I have handwritten my journalling with a black liner pen.
To create the bubbles, I used a stencil from Dusty Attic and transparent texture paste from Ranger.
While they were still wet, I sprinkled some of the stone pebbles over them.
To finish the page off I outlined the edge of the page with black liner pen and used Dylusional Spray "Squeezed Orange" and the same bubble stencil. 

Thanks for stopping by and I look forward to seeing your challenges.

Remember to always
