The Color Room & Scrap The Boys

Hi There!

I have combined a couple of challenges for this project. I was inspired by the grungy feel of these 2 challenges at The Color Room & Scrap The Boys

So I have used the colour palette from The Color Room along with using the chevron pattern & have used the Scrap the Boys base & this is what I came up with

I have used a mix of papers again with some VERY OLD Stampin Up as the stripy background, Kraft bubble dot cardstock, MME Follow your Heart & Crate Paper Toy Box

To grunge up the page I used my Crafters Workshop Chevron mask & some black ink, dry brushed some gesso, sprayed some Tattered Angels Torquise mist & splatted some Tattered Angels Candy Apple mist. I also used a Kaisercraft stamp in the bottom left & top right corner

This chippie is from Scrap FX

The Chipboard sticker plane is Crate Paper Toy Box. The Kites are chippies from 2 Crafty which I covered with PP & twine. The Mini alphas are from Simple Stories Summer Fresh

More Crate Paper Toy Box chipboard stickers. The pic is of Hunter (in the green) with his buddy Jack. Jack is my good friend Nelle's Son. We met them at Mum's group 7 years ago. The boys bdays are 5 days apart

On Tuesday I travelled to Melbourne to attend a Prima class held by Janine Koczwara! I am a HUGE fan of Janine's work & was super excited to go. The page Janine taught was extremely beautiful & Janine herself is just gorgeous! She is so nice & it was great to meet her after stalking her blog for a while now LOL!

Me & Janine after the class
My take on  Janine's page. How dreamy is this page! I luv the details & layers Janine uses. You should feel how heavy the page is with all the embellies!! I was in Prima heaven!!
