It has been a while since I created a scrapbook page and I had so much fun - think I have found my scrapbooking mojo back!!!!



I have used the following products:

I have cut this medallion up and placed it under the embellishments.

Medallion C WHITE


I have also cut this one up and placed it around the layout.

Damask Diamond stamp

I have used this stamp around the layout with Embossing Enamel

Classic Beauty

I have embossed the title with the same embossing powder as the diamond stamp - Stampendous Aged Embossing Enamel Blue

Art Journal Page for Scrap Matrix DT

Hi everyone, today I would like to share with you my second project for this months challenge at Scrap Matrix.  

This time I have created an art journal page









Here is the moodboard - I have used the black and white from the girl as my inspiration.


This is a super easy and quick page once you get into the flow of things.   You need to stamp your images onto a separate piece of paper and cut out.  They then become the masks - you place them on the already stamped image on your paper so when you stamp the next image, the edges which would have stamped over the original stamps are on the mask and dont mess up your previous stamped image - does that make sense!!!!!

I have used the Paper Artsy ETS23 stamp by Tracy Scott and a page from the Art by Marlene Journal 




I have now got a very busy background!!!!! - which I love and really didnt want to do anything to it - but I decided to add two little creatures from the Zini stamps which are super cute and a quote from Art by Marlene whimsy stickers







I hope that you have a go this month and enter the challenge - it is easy - Just add your creation into the 'August - Mandalas and Zentangles' Album over on our Facebook Scrap Matrix Shares page, and let us know in the comments what products you used from the Scrap Matrix store!

A voucher to the store, or even a Guest Design Spot are up for grabs!

Til next time - happy crafting

Scrapbook layout for Scrap Matrix DT

Morning everyone, today it is my turn to share the layout I have created for Scrap Matrix for this months challenge - Mandalas and Zentangles.

I haven't created a scrapbook page in a long time so I thought I would start with a 12x12 page:


The photo is not super clear but it was a snap chap fun photo taken on the spur of the moment one night.  I find these fun photos have more meaning and love  and I am happy to have them in my album.

I begin by stamping art foamies Splat Heart Doily and Doodle Centre onto tissue paper using Dina Wakely paints


Once these were dry I cut/tore around the edges of the images and adhered them to my paper

I have used a heavy weight white cardstock as at this stage I was unsure how much paint I was going to put onto the page - as it turned out I didnt put any !!!!!!


Once the tissue was dry I have taken a Carabelle Stamp - Scribbled leaves and Textured Circles - designed by Birgit Koopsen and stamped randomly in the gaps using Ranger Distress Archival Ink.


I wanted to create some depth behind the photo, so I have coloured the images in the Dylusions Creative Dyary Stickers book with Jane Davenport Water Colours.

I have also added some 7 Dots Cotton Candy tags and words.

To blend everything together I have added some stamps in black ink - I have used a Paper Artsy Stamp ETS10 by Tracy Scott and one mark making stamp that I had given to me by Dee Dee Catron when she came to Australia.

The main title  is from Mambi Stickers.


Here are some close ups:

Art Journal Page for Scrap Matrix DT

Hi everyone, today I am back with my second project for this months challenge for Scrap Matrix.  Again I have created an art journal page


I have used a page from the Art by Marlene Medium Journal. I have used Tim Holtz Distress Inks for the background - Mustard Seed, Carved Pumpkin and Picked Raspberry.


On a separate piece of paper from the Art by Marlene journal (I love the thickness of the paper) I stamped the flower and leaf images  from Art by Marlene Flower Stamp


I have used Jane Davenport water colours on both the flowers and leaves - adding a little flouro pencil for highlights.



I have added some liquid pearls to the centre of the flowers and white and black posca pens for highlights.

The quote and girl  is from the Art by Marlene Die Cuts

Here are some close ups:




I hope that I have given you some inspiration to have a go at this months challenge.  


It is easy to enter - all you need to do is upload a picture of your project to the Scrap Matrix Shares facebook group and tell us at lerast one product that you have used that is available from Scrap Matrix.

Art journal page for Scrap Matrix DT

Hi everyone, Lynn here today to share the first project I have done for this months moodboard/colour palette challenge for Scrap Matrix - OMG  LOVE LOVE LOVE. 

These colours are perfect for me 



I have created an art journal page:


I began by using the colours in the board randomly onto my page.  I am using a page from the Art by Marlene art journal.  I have used Dina Wakley paints - magenta and cheddar.


I have then stamped the Tracey Scott flower stamp onto the page a number of times using a template to cover the first image while I stamp the second image.  I keep forgetting that my scrap table has a bow in it and the images dont stamp well!   Never mind this is where the words are going I decide! 


Using black ink I then blacked out the background areas to give the flowers more "pop".

I stamp the same image on a seperate piece of paper and fussy cut it out - this becomes by focal point as it has more detail than the others and although a little difficult to see, it is mounting on the page with foam tape to give it some dimension.

Here is the finished product:





Products Used:









Thanks for stopping by and I hope that you love the colours as much as I do and enter this months challenge - you could win a voucher for the Scrap Matrix Store. 

Entering is easy - you only have to create an art journal page, scrapbook layout, card, tag, canvas etc and upload to our Scrap Matrix Shares facebook group and let us know at least one product that you have used that is available at Scrap Matrix.
