October Creating with Scrapmatts!

Hello there,
I trust your day is going well...  I am scratching my head as to how we got to October already, but here we are!!! I am just popping in to share a couple of layouts I have created using some fabulous Scrapmatts products.. So many  products, so many ways to use them!! I hope I can inspire you in some way today!

The first layout is one I created for last months challenge over at Color; Stories, Inspiration where some of the Scrapmatts designers guested for the challenge.Challenges are always good to get you thinking!!
The theme of my layout was to scrap about my Daughter and her cat!

and here are some closer views!!
Love the string circles and I popped a little liquid pearls dot randomly on the arrows..

The stencilled triangles always add great interest to any back ground..

The chipboard swirls are painted with black gesso to add some drama to my page..

I popped a little bow under my cluster and painted it a happy yellow to match the color scheme!

You are my favourite.

I love this photo of my Daughter and her cat... some photos just look better cut into a circle!!

The Scrapmatts I have used for this page..

The second layout I would like to share is a masculine one, and I love the gears and cogs and arrows for my male projects...

some closer views..

The gears were simply dabbed with two different colored ink pads..

Chipboard arrows, stencilled numbers...  perfect for my male page..

I added some rips to the paper and put some contrasting paper strips in the gaps for some added texture and interest.

You make the world more amazing.

And this is a list of the Scrapmatts I have used for my male layout.
