A little bit of this and a bit of that...

I had a bit of fun with my Scrapmatts playing this month - a sketch challenge, off the page and an art journal. It really was a bit of this and a bit of that! However it was messy and a lot of fun :)
You would have seen in the DT posts this month that we are playing along with Stuck?! Sketches and you can play along too and be in the running to win one of 6 fabulous prizes including a $50 gift certificate to Scrapmatts! Just upload your creation using the fabulous September sketch to Stuck?! Sketches by the 29th September (follow the instructions on this blog post to be in the running). Here is the sketch:
This is my layout using the sketch as inspiration using the gorgeous new String Circles:
Using Scrapmatts chipboard String Circles CB5114, Roses CB1202, Scrapwords 05 CB1197 and Assorted Words 15 CB6087. Scrapmatts Charms Filigree Flowers #7 CH014 and Clock from Assorted Charms #1 CH031

We recently moved house and that meant a huge clean up of my Scrap area and I discovered heaps of things I had put in 'safe' places and forgotten about (whooooops!). One of my discoveries was the beautiful Memory Cabinet which was so much fun to create with:

Using Scrapmatts chipboard Memory Cabinet CB7011, Alphabet Flags CB6084, Layered Bridge CB1177, Bird Bath (small bird) CB1203 and Scrapwords CB1198. Scrapmatts charms Filigree Flower #7 CH014 and Filigree Flower #16 CH076

There is nothing like some messy playing in an art journal to put a smile on your face :) Isabella has had a fascination with going to Paris for as long as I can remember! 
Using Scrapmatts chipboard Clock CB1107, Leaf Spray CB4063, Scrapwords CB1198 and Scrapwords 09 CB1206. Scrapmatts charms Filigree Flower #1 CH002 and Rulers CH068
The Leaf Spray has been used with a layer of Gesso and then mists over the top - it helps add texture to your page:

I hope all the Dad's had a fabulous Father's Day today :) Happy creating with all of those fabulous photos I'm sure you all took today!
