..and more scrapbook pages

I hope you are all impressed, no scrapbooking for 3+ years then my mojo hits, so enjoying it while it lasts.  Here's my latest 2.

I had a really cool vintage looking  rose napkin that I used for the background.  
I love that cheeky grin!!

I don't do multi photo layouts, but I think this one works. 
My husband just loves being near the water watching the waves roll in.
Background stamped using a Tim Holtz stamp and distress ink and some paint splattering,
well it wouldn't be me without the splatters now would it!!

Altered Paint BRUSH

Over on UKScrappers I have organised an Spring Altered Brush swap.  My swappee asked for a Spring Woodland.  I really enjoyed having a play and hopefully my swapee is equally delighted.

I think I;'ll be making more of these, its a fabulous 'canvas' to work with .  TFL Lou x

Lets get INKY

While surfing the net yesterday I came across a really cool scrapbooking challenge on the Merly Impressions blog.  Basically, create a layout using ink.  There are some excellent examples over there so well worth a look.  This is my INKY layout:

I used the Cosmic Shimmer Mists in Lava Red, Mango Blaze and Aqua Lagoon.  I painted on the rainbow and then used a straw to blow the ink over the top half of the paper.  It was great fun.  I have  used a black ink pen to write the names of the children and draw a very freehand style frame around the photo.  It was great fun and the whole piece shimmers in the sunshine.  
Check out the challenge and other entries here.
