Hello and happy Thursday! Today it´s DAY 12 of The Ugly Art Club #tuac5minchallenge and here is my take:
And as usual, the video for you to watch:
Now as I am looking at this I suddenly notice that I´m kinda leaving the “ugly” art. At least I don´t think flowers are ugly, so I might need to rethink what “junk” pieces I pick as my starting point. This is all junk on this piece – leftover paper with leftover inks and stamped images on it, so therefore I chose it. But it kinda looks very cute… hmmmm… I´ll try and do better next time..
Hello and happy Wednesday! Mid week – yay!! Here is my take for Day 11 at The Ugly Art Club´s #tuac5minchallenge. Now that you already know what this is about I´ll just add the finished piece and the video every day to save time.
You can find all the steps in the video anyway, so no need to write them down and I also try to find alternative products (similar to the used ones) linked to the product list, just in case you want to create something similar yourself.
I again ran out of time. I would have wanted to add more, but forced myself to stop, because the challenge is about keeping the time frame in about 5 minutes.
It´s good practice to try and do only short periods. Usually, when I sit down and work on a project, hours just run by without me noticing. So it´s good to set a timer and show myself that sometimes only a little time is enough. And then there is plenty of time for other stuff too.
Hello lovelies and happy Sunday! Today I´m sharing yet another scrapbook layout with you. This one is again created with The Wild Hare Kits October Petite Kit and as my inspiration for this particular page I used the October Sketch. Here it is:
And now to my take on it:
I mainly used the Pinkfresh Studio Office Hours collection to create this page. I immediately knew I wanted to use the “Hard Work” paper for this page when I saw the sketch. So instead of using hexagons I used circles which I simply fussy cut from the paper. There were plenty to choose from, so I picked the ones I found most suitable. The ones with clocks kinda fit the working day/life theme quite well.
I first fussy cut and arranged all pieces onto a piece of white cardstock (that is from my own stash, not from the kit). Then I added stamping (for interest) with a roller stamps – again from my stash – and layered various embellishments from the Office Hours Mixed Embellishment Pack on top of the fussy cut paper circles.
Next I took some blue Nuvo Embellishment Mousse (from my stash) and mixed some of it with water. That creates a liquid you can create “ink” droplets with. I added a few here and there, following the sketch, for detail.
I added some faux stitching around the circle elements with a black pen for additional interest.
Also there are some Office Hours Chipboard Stickers on the page here and there too for texture and interest. I used pens and office supply things, because, obviously it´s a work-themed layout.
I kept to a very clean and simple look without adding too much stamping and media as I wanted to hightlight the corgeous papers and embellishments. I also didn´t do a subtitle under the layout title, but instead added some journaling to the page.
If you like this month´s sketch, do give a try on it! We´d love to see what you make, so be sure to tag us (#wildharekits), so we can come and take a look on your take!!! Wishing you a great time with the Wild Hare Kits and their sketch!
Hello everyone and welcome to the Wild Hare Kits Design Team´s monthly scraplift post! Last month we scraplifted the lovely Rachel and this month it´s Laura Rahel Crosby who we are scraplifting!!!
Here is her project I chose to scraplift this month:
And here is my take on it:
I´ve also recorded a video on the process for you to watch. I hope you enjoy it!!
I chose this layout for scraplifting, because I found the idea of creating a paper roll title just awesome! That is what immediately inspired me. I created a smaller page in size, so I had to rearrange and rethink the arrangement for my page. BUT even though my page looks different to hers, I kept to the basic idea of using two photos, creating the fun title, using stickers and puffy stickers for decoration. I know she used enamel dots in stead of puffy stickers, but I didn´t have any around atm. I think you can still recognize the similarities, even though the end result differs in size and arrangement.
This was a fun challenge, because I had to improvise a little more than I did last month. I hope you find inspiration and scraplift one of Laura´s pages too. Be sure to tag her and the Wild Hare Kits and use #thewildharekits when sharing on your social media!!!
I´ll be back with another project on the 29th, so be sure to come and check it out!
Hello everyone and welcome to my first The Wild Hare Kits September Petite Kit project share! This month I received a Petite Kit from The Wild Hare Kits to design with and it had 2 sheets of Pink Fresh Studio´s “Just A Little Lovely” collection papers in it and I just ADORE them – especially the B-Sides!!! <3
I started September off by creating a layout based on this months sketch. Have you played with the Wild Hare Kits monthly sketches yet? I find them very inspiring and always have a great time playing with them!
Here are the steps I did to create the layout:
Take pink, green and blue spray inks and mix them with a little bit of water to create a lighter tone and a more liquid watercolour look. Now grab a paint brush and apply the deluted ink onto the page copying the watercolour look of the paper, but only apply the paint onto the areas according the September sketch.
After the first layer is dry, apply some ink droplets randomly onto the background for additional detail. Use the same colours.
Next place a stencil – I used my Carta Bella Garden Geometric Stencil which came with the kit for this purpose – onto the Just A Little Lovely paper on top of the previously painted area and apply Nuvo Mother of Pearl Embellishment Mousse with a palette knife onto the background for interest and texture. Let dry properly before moving to the next step.
Now take the Sparkle City Speech Bubble paper and fussy cut the speech pubble with scissors. Arrange onto the page, but don´t adhere it on place yet.
Next take the Shimelle Sparkle City sticker sheet and add the green toned border sticker (cut in smaller pieces) next to the speech pubble paper and underneath it, so that is shows only partially.
Keep adding more decorational elements from the Sparkle City collection papers and sticker sheet until you are happy with the result. Then arrange the photos in place and adhere everything on their places. Add additional decoration using sentiment and/or word stamps next to the photos.
Finish the page off by outlining it with a black pen, then attach the glitter alphas on place to build a layout title.
You can also add journaling, but I chose not to, as I find that the title tells it all.
I´ve again recorded a video for you to watch. I hope it inspires you and gives you a better idea on each an every step!
Also, we always love to see you take your twist on our monthly sketch!! So if you do, be sure to tag the Wild Hare Kits on social media and/or use #thewildharekits, so we can come and leave some love!! We´d love to see what you make!
Happy scrapping and see you again on the 22nd with another TWHK project share!!! Sanna
