Off the Rails February Challenge

This month, the challenge over at Off the Rails is to add texture and colour – a fun challenge. I have used colour blast shimmer dust to create a vibrant orange and yellow background over cotton muslin. I have also used texture paste through a mask, twine, gutter guard, corrugated card , embossed card stock and stitching to create texture.

Thanks for the challenge and to the design team for their inspiration.

Here is my page. I was inspired by the colours in the CSI challenge and the tropical vibe of the moodboard. I have used a solid white background,flowers,leaves, rub ons from the evidence clues and a summer memory from the testimony

Cherish – January challenges

Wow, I love the colour Bayou blue and this month’s moodboard over at White with1. I was also inspired by the bowl of m&ms and used the circular rose stencil and then painted over that in watercolour stripes using the striped fabric bolts as inspiration.

Thanks for this great challenge. Here is my take.



I have used the sketch from Sketches in Thyme to complete my layout.

The studio challenge – Jan 14

The mid-month challenge over at The studio challenge is to use snowflakes. Although we live in a tropical climate many of the Christmas themed store promotions are “winter wonderland” based. ย So I have used this photo of my grandchildren sitting on a polar bear seat in front of “snow” covered trees. I have included a few red coloured snow flakes amongst the collectables in the wreath.

February- Artartic Art Inspiration Challenge

The 3 women having fun in the artwork on the plate inspired my choice of photograph and background colour. I used Colourblast mica powder and shimmer dust to create the blue background and then applied white paint through a 13@rts stencil to give a spotted effect like the girls blue skirt. My embellishments ( Cocoa Vanilla) are multicoloured -inspired by the girls’ clothing.

This is such a fun challenge. Head over to the blog and give this months challenge a go!!


Thanks for looking. Have a great day ๐Ÿ™‚

What a fun case to solve with these fabulous inspiration prompts. I have used the main prompt of Alice – the name my grand daughter gave to her new bunny ( A replacement for Jemima) but also used soft beige, blue and red tones. Thanks to the design team for their inspiration.DSC03087
