Hi everyone, it's Cindy here with you today, thanks for joining me.

I'd like to share with you the layout I have created to play along with the current challenge.

This month the challenge was set by our DT member Brenda.  Here is her challenge...

Scrap a photo of a friend. 
Your layout must have the word friend in the title and have journalling which is more than a couple of words.  

Well, Brenda certainly knew how to challenge me with that journalling requirement.... I am the queen of minimal you know less is more, hahaha...

So here is my take on the challenge.... "Friend"
This month Jo sent me the Kaisercraft Mister Fox Collection to play with... in this layout I have used Brave, Fearless and Distinguished along with the Mister Fox Collectables Pack.

It was not my original intention to completely cover the background paper.  I started with the new Scrap FX Ripples Stencil and some gel medium, it was my intention to have the clear gel medium pattern resist the colours I was applying.... but the paper bled the colour underneath the medium.... so a quick coat of gesso and then spraying with Lindy's stamp Gang sprays and I had a new background.  For my title I used the Scrap FX wordlet Friends and cut off the 's'.

 There were lots of great pieces in the collectables pack, I also used some Scrap FX Itty Bitty Bets "Groovy" alphabet letters (these letters are so cool they are black chipboard, so no need to colour them)

 To further add to the background texture, I used the Darkroom Door French Script stamp, the Scrap FX Hash Stamps and the Tim Holtz Schoolhouse stencil. 

One last pic showing my journalling that is more than my usual couple of words, along with more of the background detailing, stamping and stenciling...

I hope you like my take on the challenge and I hope you'll play along for your chance to win a great prize pack.  I look forward to seeing your creations.

till next time
happy creating


  1. I'm glad I'm not the only 1 who doesn't end up with what they started out with in their mind. Loving all the texture, thanks for sharing Cindy.

  2. Love the textures Cindy, you always rock them. You did well with the challenge, even the journal work. After I set the challenge I later thought...... Ok I have swimming papers and Cindy told me at retreat she isn't one to journal......Oppps. We were both going to have fun and you did it. Awesome layout. You did great. xx

  3. Awesome layout Cindy! I love the colours! The textures are fantastic and I just adore the layering that you have created with such a variety of mediums.
    Well done on the journalling :)


We love your feedback so stay and say g'day
