AUGUST - Wow! Where has this year gone?
Today is the first day of the last month of winter here in Australia...some of us are happy about that we can not wait for this cold weather to be over.
No matter what the weather, wherever you are, there is no reason not to participate in this months challenge here at Scrapbookit.
I am lucky enough to be the first cab off the rank this month. I know, unusual that I am ready to go but thought I would give Jo a little beginning of the month rest.
So this month we are sharing with you some of the new Kaisercraft Collections.
As you know we both went to the Kaisercraft Retailers Days. This month is the first of what we saw while we were there.
We have decided to get a little MESSY this month. Our challenge is all about M.
All you need to do is create a project that covers the following M words...
Here is what I have created...
I started with a regular piece of cardboard that I got as packaging when I purchased an appliance.
Just as we did in Jo's class at the retreat in March, I stripped back some of the card to uncover the corrugated section.
I then distress inked with Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Walnut Stain.
I then used the Kaisercraft Template - Cogs and some mists to add to my background.
I used the Tim Holtz Distress Spray - Antiqued Bronze and the Colour Bloom - Antique Gold Mist.
In the bottom right hand corner of the photo I have used the Kaisercraft Tic Toc Clear Stamp. I have used some of the Tim Holtz Distress Embossing Powder - Vintage Photo.
I really like this embossing powder when creating masculine layouts....it leaves a really rough texture.
I have used one of the newest collections by Kaisercraft this month and for this layout. I have used some of the papers and the collectables.
It is called Time Machine!
I just love it. It is so easy to work with and I really love using it for those masculine pages.
I generally say that I am "not a green person" but I actually love the green in this range.
This collection is a MUST have in everyone's scrappy stash.
Anyway, I hope you have enjoyed my latest using the gorgeous Kaisercraft Time Machine.
Don't forget you have got to be in it to win it...
Make sure your M inspired project is uploaded or emailed to Jo before the end of the month (August 30th is the closing date).
I will be back later in the month to share some more of my Time Machine projects...until then make sure you pop back in later this week and check out the gorgeous work Jo has been creating.
Happy August 1st!
