Welcome to April!

Welcome everyone to April!
Who can believe that the Victorian school term is over? It is nearly Easter...the year is going so quickly.

This month we have a new challenge for you that will suit all of those scrapbookers out there who love including more than one photo on a layout. As a matter of fact...this month it is even a double layout!!!!

So the requirements of this months challenge are:
*Follow the double layout sketch (below) 
*Add texture
*Add stamping
*Add flowers


Thank you Pagemaps...love this sketch!

Here is my take on the challenge...


I have been lucky to be able to play with some new products this month. Firstly, the paper collection, the gorgeous P.S. I Love You from Kaisercraft. Such gorgeous colours and just perfect for the wedding photos to come out again.


I have also played with the Tim Holtz - Distress Oxide Inks. These are new on the market and I just love them! For this layout, I have used them with my blending tool around the outside of the layout. It has left them with quite a soft, chalky look.

I have used some of Lindy's Stamp Gang Spray. However, rather than adding water to the bottle I have spread the powder around the layout and sprayed with a small amount of water onto the layout.


You may not be able to see my texture in these photos. I have created it as part of the background using Colour Blast Colour Paste - Snow White and one of the new Kaisercraft Mini Designer Templates called Rough Grid.

You may not be able to see my stamping either,  however,  I have stamped several Kaisercraft Clear Stamps including a musical score using black and lattice effect (one end of a stamp) using white.

I have included several little bunches of flowers around the layout.




The 'forever' is part of the element sticker sheet which is matched to the Kaisercraft collection. I have changed it's colour though and I have used Versamark ink to do so.


 All of the products that I have used for this double layout have come from Jo @ Scrapbookit.

Make sure that you get your entry in for this months challenge...you have until April 30 to get your entries in. 

Don't forget that you can enter your projects in a variety of ways...post to our Facebook page, add via Inlinkz on this blog or email to Jo at joanne@scrapbookit.com.au

I will be back throughout this month to share some other projects but in the meantime...
Happy Scrapping,
