Scrap Our Stash - Amazing

I love the challenges at Scrap Our Stash because it makes me go through the stash that I've had for a long time.   This months challenge #18 was called 'Back to School', my layout isn't about school but I've used some things that I've had for ages and not touched.

I've used:  
from List A -Chalkboard Paper and a ruled card as a photo mat 
from List B -  I've used the paper clips, ruler (as in paper under the photo and also in the bottom left corner) and also the chalkboard embellishment again under the photo and bottom left cluster.  The alpha is a set given to me in a RAK a while ago and a lot of the letters were missing so I chose a title where I could use those still available.

A couple of close-ups.

Off the Rails - He's a Dreamer

This month at Off the Rails there's a beautiful mood board that I just had to give a go.  I was skype scrapping with a friend who got me motivated to enter a challenge so here's my layout.

and here's the mood board
It's beautiful with so many options.
And now for a couple of close-ups.

I used some patterned paper I received as a prize from Greece some time ago together with some gold glitter paper from Bella and some gold washi from D-Lish Scraps.
The glasses have been cut on the Silhouette Machine, the title Alpha is Thickers and the gold spray is Heidi Swapp Color Shine with some Lindy's Stamp Gang Bluey colour and Black Dylusions for the splatters.

Art Journal

It's been a little while since I posted so thought I would put up my latest Art Journal pages.  I had loads of fun created these pages using a couple of stencils, spray inks, gesso, stamps chalk inks, and gold flakes.  I found the quote on Pinterest and I can relate so well to it over the course of my life.
