'Wild Barefoot and Free'.... with Rikki Graziani

Good Morning how are you all? Rikki here, starting to feel the Winter chill and I dont know why I always tend to scrap my Summer photos in Winter..... Am I the only one?

So while dreaming of Summer, Scrapmatts Chipboard is the perfect finishing touch......

                          LOVE & LAUGH BUTTERFLY CANVAS

Good Morning Followers. Jodie here with  my DT post for July.
This is my love & laugh butterfly canvas.
It features lots of amazing chipboard from Scrapmatts.

To start the canvas, I have used this beautiful tissue paper that I recently purchased at the Perth Craft Fair. 
I love the Parisian look.

Base of canvas using tissue paper.

 I used clear gesso to apply the tissue paper and to seal it.
To create the washed out effect, I diluted dylusions paint and painted the wash over the tissue paper.
The collage stamp is from Darkroom Door and the postcard is from a Kaisercraft collection and stamped with pinecone ink.

This butterfly is from the CB1015 Butterflies Chipboard.
The Hexagon chipboard CB5122 is coloured with the gold ink.
I have embossed it with Stampendous Aged Marine Embossing Powder.
The feathers charms are from Toko Central in Bali.

 This gorgeous little leaves are from the CB5177 Wildflowers.
I have inked with the Brilliance Gold Ink Pad
Flowers are from 49 and Market.

This cute love, laugh and hearts are from the CB6117 Assorted Words Chipboard.
I have embossed with Gold embossing powder.

To finish off the canvas I added some cheesecloth and black sewing twine.
Some pearl bling for the butterfly centres and coloured with Caramel Alcohol Ink Marker.

Finished canvas.

June layouts

Welcome to my June post, its Lisette here.

Today I have two quite different layouts for you.

The first one I created for the CSI challenge for May, where Scrapmatts are a sponsor.  The theme for the months was 'get caught reading'.  I love nothing more than sitting by the water reading while on holidays.  The photo is from a recent break hubby and I had at Batemans Bay on the beautiful south coast of NSW.  We both spent many hours sitting on the balcony reading with a cup of tea or glass of wine! 

For those that read my posts each month you will notice that I haven't done any stenciling on this layout!  Quite different for me!

Product used:-

CB4069 - Ornate Frames 26

CB6110 - Ornate Frames 25

CB6113 - ScrapWords 32

CB1197 Scrapwords 05

I love this photo of our cat Sooty.  Over the last few months he has become very affectionate - it has only taken 7 years!  When I sit at my desk to scrap he always seems to appear about 10 mins later and proceeds to walk all over the desk and whatever it on it, then curls himself up in my lat.  Love this photo of him looking straight up and into the camera - thank goodness for phones!  And this one has stencilling!

Products used:-

Happy creating

C.S.I. Color Stories Inspiration and SCRAPMATTS!

Hello there,
 thanks for joining us for our June Blog Posts where we share our creations using wonderful SCRAPMATTS products.

For my post this month I am sharing the layouts I have created for the Color, Stories, Inspiration C.S.I. Challenges where Scrapmatts have been a sponsor and the Design Team were invited to join in with the challenges. If you haven't joined in with these challenges before, you might like to check them out, you might win some wonderful Scrapmatts as a prize!!

For the challenge #254 which was for May 15th I took my inspiration for this challenge by the C.S.I. challenge  photo and also because May was 'get caught reading month'. Now my daughter loves to read and I was able to sneak this photo of her reading a book sitting out in the sunshine and I used that.

Some closer views..
Some stencilling on the back ground and I just had to use that Scrapmatts word painted with black gesso as my Daughter just enjoys a good book!

I love these swirly chippies and chain frame..

Popped a cute little heart in there!

and my layout..

and here is a list of the Scrapmatts I have used on this layout..

The second layout I am sharing is another layout I created for the C.S.I. CHALLENGE  #255 and this layout was using the criteria to document about a food, and also by June 1st which is World Doughnut day!  I have used two photos of when my Daughter had a doughnut cake for her birthday one year!!

some closer views.

Love the texture created by the Star and Star Burst stencils.

Love this sweet bow which I painted in the same water color I used on my back ground.
