Some Scrapmatts Creating.

Hello there,
well where have I been?  It has been a while since I last blogged and I have been trying to find my new 'groove'! I guess it will take time, and although I haven't been creating much, I just thought I would share on my blog some creating I have done for my Design Team work for Scrapmatts. I did these ages ago, before all the rush this month of Formal Graduation week for my Daughter.

The first one is a male layout I did using a photo of my hubby..

I have used Kaisercraft papers and embellishments with Scrapmatts stencils and chipboard pieces.. I ripped the paper and added some clocks and cogs under the tear for some interest.

another closer view of the rip and also some stenciling which I did using a dauber and ink pad.

Some layering.. The big gear was inked with different colored inks to make it look aged..

I don't do many male layouts and I am happy with how this looks..

The next layout I would like to share is one I created using a photo of my Daughter in our paddock.. I love our back yard with its big gum trees and these trees were my inspiration for this page.. I have used some Scrapmatts gum leaves chipboard pieces for this page..  I colored the chipboard with several colors to try and achieve a natural look and I think they blend into the papers I have used  well..

Can you tell what is the chipboard pieces and what are the papers?? hehe!

This Federation corner went well on my page as we have lots of Kookaburras living in our trees.

I have layered some fussy cut leaves and gum flowers down the side of my page with some more gum leaf chipboard.

And I would like to share a layout I created with a photo of my Darling Grand Daughter...  I thought how wonderful it would be to create a page each month to mark those monthly milestones... well I have barely kept up.. I did grab a photo of her when she turned 7 months and I scrapped that using some sweet wildflower chipboard pieces from Scrapmatts.

I will just share one closer view of the chipboard which I backed with paper and added some pink stickles and liquid pearls for the centres of the flowers..

7 months.
She is just the cutest little darling and I cant believe she has just turned 9 months old...Thank goodness for Facebook where I can get the photos off and maybe one day I will get to scrap each monthly milestone until she is one year old.. hehe..  I hope so!

Well thank you for coming by, I know that the days are just going to get crazy as we get closer to Christmas so I do appreciate you all for dropping in.. Thanks too for all the lovely comments you leave me to read, I love reading them..

so until next time... take care...
