Day of Fun - Karen McLaughlin

Hi Karen with you today with my example for this month's challenge.  It is a challenge where you take inspiration from the mood board.  I have taken bikes, bikes, bikes.  I have used the large bike shape and also the small bike shape.  The other pieces of chipboard I have used is the Feather Arrow Circle frame  and the title Day of Fun.  All of these plus lots lots more can be found in the shop.  Here is the link

Exploring in Adelaide

Hello Everyone. I hope you are enjoying your weekend.
Today I am sharing a layout featuring a A2Z flourish.

Recently I had an afternoon playing tourist in Adelaide and we discovered this bridge not far from the CBD. 

I used this amazing flourish to anchor the photo (and to cover up a grotty looking corner of the photo). 

The flourish was painted with Distress oxide - blueprint sketch.
A bonus when using Distress oxides - you do not need to gesso the chipboard first - yay!

Happy Crafting, Cheers!

Snapchat Fun - Karen McLaughlin

Karen here with you today to show you a page where I have cut in half a dream catcher and detached the feathers to place them elsewhere.  I also added a peacock feather.  With the title Snapchat Fun I also detached the stars to place them elsewhere.  Don't be afraid to cut up your chipboard to get more out of it.  Thanks for looking.

Hello, I hope you are having a great day.
My inspiration today is another cycling page. 


Photo credit - Luca Bettini - via Peter Sagan Facebook page.

My husband and I are big cycling fans and love the Tour Down Under when it comes to Adelaide in January.

The background has my usual texture paste, including metallic texture paste, ink/misting and stamping.

Thanks for stopping by. Cheers.

A Proud Moment - Karen McLaughlin

Hi A2Z Fans.  Karen on the blog today to show you a page using the Squiggle Flourish Set of 3.  I have also used this delightful Floral Heart which is placed behind the photo.  It is such a pretty piece.  I love it.   There is also the great title - a proud moment -  all of which has been painted and some texture paste added to it.  I cut up the Squiggle Flourish a bit to place around the heart.  Thank you for looking.
