Sunday Scrapping on a Woodware Theme... Mixed Media

Sunday Scrapping on a Woodware Theme... Mixed Media
The challenge over on the Woodware blog this week has been mixed media. This 12x12 scrapbook layout was built up using nothing but kraft card and cream card... and a whole host of paste and sparkle! I used Stampendous utee, Frantage, glass glitter, embossing powders, mixed media inks and Dreamweaver paste. I wanted to get loads of texture and depth into the layout as that was what the photo was all about! DS2 was quite deep in the textured sand! 
So, up close for the detail...
And here is how the layers were built up...

Sunday Scrapping on a Woodware Theme - Sketch 36




The Woodware Theme this week is a Sketch - Sketch 36 to be precise (see it at the end of the post). I used a Dreamweaver Stencil and an ink set to create my own 12x12 scrapbook 'paper' and background for this layout. The photograph shows the boys on holiday in Brittany. They had just eaten MASSIVE ice creams! Hop on over to the Woodware blog to see what the crafters have been up to. Happy scrapping, jenx

Saturday Scrapping With Wear Crafts

Saturday scrapping with Wear Crafts.
12x12 scrapbook layout using MME Lost and Found papers. This is us Skimming Stones at Low Park Wood in the Lake District. I don't usually use 6x6 on 12x12, but this works quite nicely with the 2x6 offcuts from the Beach Boys layout I shared last week. Should I bling it up a bit more? Nah... I quite like it how it is :) Happy scrappy Saturday, jenxx

12x12 Scrapbook Layout: School's Out For Summer... Well Nearly!

12x12 Scrapbook Layout: School's Out For Summer... Well Nearly!

As DS1 has reached the end of his Secondary School Career, it seemed appropriate to scrap some of the many photos collected over his years. This one is a Tutor Group snap... with only a little bit of fussy cutting! Happy scrapping, jenx

12x12 Scrapbook Layouts with School Photographs

Quite the opposite of the fussy cutting... as we come to the end of the academic year, here are my two monsters in school photographs. One for each album, scrapped the same way. How many of you have an album for each youngling containing identical layout lifts like this? I even have some of the same photo of the pair of them together, scrapped the same way, in each album. What do you do? Happy scrapping, jenx

12x12 Scrapbook Layout With Even More Fussy Cutting!

12x12 Scrapbook Layout with even more fussy cutting... but not quite so fussy as yesterday! There are three or four pieces of the same paper layered up in this one and quite a lot of bling that had been lying around for ages, unused. Photo is DS1 looking pretty cute at about a year old - I am a dreadful mother as I really can't remember when this set of photos was taken! Bad scrapbooker  Enjoy a sunny day... it is nearly summer hollyberries and time to make even more memories. Happy scrapping, jenx

Woodware Sketch Challenge - a Wear Crafts Card


There is a sketch challenge over on the Woodware blog here if you fancy joining in and linking up. Mother used the Tall Flower Vase stamp and the sentiments stamps, then painted the ink in using a water brush. Happy scrapping, jenx

Fussy Cutting to the Max on a Scrapbook Layout!

Fussy Cutting to the Max on a Scrapbook Layout! I make no excuses... I like to snip snip snip with my scissors. Roots in decoupage back in the day, which then turned into scrapbooking... which I had been waiting for all my life, without even realising! And it is darn good therapy for recouperation too! Happy scrapping, jenx

Sunday Scrapping on a Woodware Theme - Poppies... We Will Remember

The Woodware Theme this week is Poppies... We Will Remember. This layout uses the Woodware Poppy Clear Magic Single Stamp, Mixed Media Ink and a bit of water brushing. I used Woodware Chippie waste as a stencil to create the title. The pen is a Sakura 0.2 micron pen, which is the Zentanglers tool of choice... but also the only one I willl use for my journaling! The layout remembers our time in Normandy visiting the Battlefield sites. It was a really moving part of the holiday. Hop on over to the Woodware Blog to see what the crafters have been up to this week. Thrilled to have my layout featured over there.  Happy scrapping, jenx

The Scrapbook Magazine

Quite happy to be in The Scrapbook Magazine this issue. :) DS2... not so much ;)
...on seeing The Scrapbook Magazine... "You did not have my permission to use my image in that publication, mother." I looked at him over my glasses, with raised eyebrows. He continued, "Is there a fee for this type of thing, mother?" my lips thinned and I continued to stare... I knew where this was going... He knew that I knew where this was going. He tried to justify his position, "Well mother, I have my reputation to think of... My friends may see it... I may need compensation." Hmmmmmmm, happy scrapping, jenx
