Not painting, scrapping.
A collection of layouts today - one of Kell and Roh for Scrapbook Divas monthly challenge (word love and heart/s). A couple of details - love the funky zebra print in the KI Memories Wild Thing 'Elements'. These little cross-stitches in the flowers are pretty cute I think :)
These other two are for the 123 cybercrop
challenges 1 and 3. I love this photo of Sienna at 8 weeks old, and have wanted to put it with this Tagore poem I love for awhile. The challenge was buttons, bling (there is a bling photo corner, and collections of tiny star sequins all through) and chipboard (title). I started this last night at 9pm and finished it this morning. Check out the detail of the little dragonfly - my sister Kelly gave me three of these little dragonfly brads as a gift, knowing how I love dragonflies. Cool, hey!
This last layout, which was actually the second one I did, was for challenge 3 in the Cybercrop. The sketch was part of the criteria, and I don't like using sketches usually, but took the chance to use a lot of Kiti Q product - including the funky new Bampop stuff! Also a couple of Basic Grey Pheobe papers. OK the second criteria was to take inspiration from outside your front door - living in the hills I took my colour combo from the all trees and sky I see as soon as I go outside. The third criteria was paint.
On Saturday morning Ben, the kids and I went to South Yarra to go to Porters Paints - I wanted to pick up some paint for my foyer / work area / scrap area. Yes, when you walk inside my front door you see my scrap desk! So it needed organising :) First thing - bought the paint. Woohoo! I have it sitting here next to my desk in it's nice paper bag. Need to pick up my brushes from helping Kell paint her kitchen.
Afterwards we went to IKEA and picked up some stuff for the kids room, a few bits for the kitchen and some storage things for my scrap area. The kids were really good and we were all completely exhausted by the time we got home. I spent the rest of the day sorting my desk and supplies - boy do I have too much stuff. Anyhow, it is nice and tidy now, I will take some photos soon to post. In the meantime a couple of photos from Porters Paints - I love this place. Such great colours and I love the feel of the paint on the wall. Check out the gorgeous cabinet full of tiny colour pots! Way funky.
