Using SCRAPMATTS for Challenge layouts.

Hello there,
How is your March going? Personally I wish the days would slow down a bit, the year is going way too fast!!

If you know me, you would know that I like online Scrapbooking challenges. They get you to create in ways you may not usually create.  A couple of months ago I joined in with a Challenge called White with One and as the name suggests you have to use the color white with one other color.. and for this month it was red..  So I got out some  Scrapmatts to use on my layout..
I had a photo I took of my Daughter and a horse that was staying in our paddock and began with that..
The first thing I did was some stencilling and as this had a Christmas theme, I used the star stencil from Scrapmatts.  Then it was a matter of pretty much slopping on color using water color paints..
I got out the Scrapmatts Chipboard I wanted to use and simply used white gesso and the water color paint on the chipboard pieces.
Then I layered up my embellishments around my photo and added some bling for some sparkle!!

some closer views..
I love these pretty stars and I cut up my chipboard to suit how I wanted to use it..

How simple yet how effective to place a little gem on the chipboard to really make some pop!

and my layout..

Enjoy everyday moments..

and here is a list of the Scrapmatts products I have used.

ST5002 Stencil Stars 


CB6086 Twig Frame 01 


CB1067 Flourishes 10 


CB2001 Page Borders 01 

The second layout I would like to share with you is a layout I created for a different challenge, and this challenge asked that we use the word "Forever" and hearts on our page. I thought of my Parents who have been married for 63 years and I used a photo of them on their Wedding day all those years ago..

Some closer views of my layout.

I stencilled some pretty hearts from a stencil onto the back ground...

I love this Heart Frame which I embossed in white and placed on the photo to frame my parents in love...

I also love the  words which are perfect for adding some sentiment..
