Playing along again over at the Kraft+ blog for this months ‘denim revolution’ challenge.
I have had these photos of my youngest daughter in my pile for ages. I loved these little denim overalls, I didn’t particularly love the mud all over her bum! But, as it turns out, it made for perfect colour combo for Kraft + Denim!
I started of by gesso-ing my background and then used a baby wipe to smear some Mr Hueys Navy ink. I love the way this gives a good ground point for my papers and clusters.
I used a lot of papers and elements from the Maggie Holmes Bloom collection, as well as a beautiful floral from a very old Heidi Shine paper, which I fussy cut for layering. I deconstructed a Charm’s creation denim heart, and a Flutterby Designs Die Cut.
This was a fun challenge, and I’m really happy with the way this came together.

Wow, another month has ticked over! How does that keep happening!? I’m super excited about summer being over, but really the best thing about a new month is the new challenge over at Scrap The Girls!
So, for this month the challenge is called “First, Let’s Take A #Selfie”. Yep, you guessed it. It’s all about the Selfie.
This should be an easy one with all the selfies hanging around on our phones, but I know it can be a challenge to scrapbook yourself. I encourage you all to have a go, it’s important we are in the scrapbooks too!
I grabbed a selfie that some girlfriends and I had taken late one drunken evening (oops!), it was a little grainy and blurry (read: drunk), so I made it black and white to hide the blur!
I love how using a B&W photo gives you a so many options! I went for a grungy layout with a pop of yellow, and lots of texture through stencils and stamps. This page makes me smile and reminds me of how much (messy) fun we had that night!
Make sure you pop by the Scrap The Girls blog to check out the rest of the DT layouts, and why not give the #selfie challenge a go!
I’m excited to be able to share that I am lucky enough to join the Design Team over at Scrap The Girls challenge blog! With the team notified before Christmas, it’s been pretty tough keeping a lid on this little secret! And what an awesome team they are, I have admired some of these ladies for a long time!
And straight into the challenges we hopped! First up we have a sketch challenge. This one was tricky as it incorporated multiple pics, and with my Selphy printer on the blink, I had to pull pics from my stash.
Boy, I’m pleased that I did! I really love how this layout shows many of my youngest daughters silly faces, and tells more of a story about her personality than one photo would have.
I had fun with this layout, getting messy with some dylusions paints and digging into Crate Paper’s cute girl collection.
I hope you join in the fun!
Until next time,
Big Loves, Tam x
