monday blues...

Just sharing a few layouts on a blue monday morning (started out raining). This first one is bright and sunny (I really love yellow on layouts), where you see the fleece American Crafts embellies I just couldn't resist buying (my wallet was supposed to be on strike buy I coaxed a few bucks out of it). Love the center die cut from Lily!

And here's my take on the second color palette over at The Color Room. Too bad the misting isn't as solid as in real life. Here it looks very subtle:


through the looking glass...

Misty, misty Sunday... after a GREAT saturday crop with the SASG girls, I'm still experiencing some outflow of creative juices (I want to mist, paint, and ink something!). The girls made our 3rd Anniversary extra special with the challenge (we all loved borrowing Marix' stencils and mists, as well as stamping and embossing with her beautiful stamps!). I also loved all the games which got us on our feet before the long sit-down to do our layouts. I'm especially fond of the the "hep hep hurray" game, hee hee. =D And the musical chairs and "pabitin" was a wonderful treat. So here's the fruit of my labor:

...and here are some close-ups, where I used glimmer mist from Tattered Angels (Crushed Shells and Suede):

...I also used Ranger Distress Crackle paint (in Shabby Shutters) on the leaf here (thougt it didn't turn out quite the way I liked... I really love the color).

Used Teresa Collins (Welcome Home) patterned paper for the border, and Marix' "Alice" stamp (using Versa Ink) to make this li'l "locket" type embellishment.

Then finally used these new uber chic ribbons to finish off.


the Alice in Wonderland challenge

{"in Wonderland" by Iris Babao Uy}

Down the rabbit-hole we go... to the 32nd Scrappersatsg Challenge!
It's our 3rd Anniversary Challenge and it's extra special because:

ONE - the challenge is issued by none other than Iris Babao Uy! (We're so thrilled and honored!)

TWO - the challenge is open to ALL scrappers! (Join in the fun!)

Without further ado, here's Iris' challenge:

Create a layout that is inspired by the movie (or book) , Alice in Wonderland.
The catch is you have to use, at least, two art mediums.
That could be a crackle paint, mist, ink, gel, etc

To quote her: "To not care about getting messy and making mistakes. To just have fun and create".

Deadline is on April 29, 11:59 PM.
Please send your entries to scrappersatsg@gmail.com.

What's in store for you? Why this wonderful RAK of course! So come join us and have a wonderful scrapping time!
