September Scrapmatts :)


Popping in to add a post about my September Scrapmatts Design Team Share.

 So the DT prompt was 'Something New' (inspired by all the newness about us here in Australia as it is Springtime).
hmmmm! Well my new love is watercolor paints so I went with that!!!
Here is a layout I created and I also used some of my fav colours Blue, White and Green :)
 I found this photo of Hugo the other day while searching for another photo.....I put it in a safe place as I knew I needed it scrapped!!!
 { My Happy Boy}
I've used the Scrapmatts word 'Happy' (SW007 Happy 01) & some of the pieces from the Ornate Frames 17 (CB4060)
 I've coated the pieces in white gesso. I love using watercolors at the moment as they are so versatile, the softness of colour is so pretty. I even used it to colour my flowers more to my liking!
Blue, green and white are such great SPRING colours
 I found the big blue beads, sequins and small beads amongst some old jewelery making stuff and really liked them... 
 I've also used flowers from Craft Queen and also
 2 masks from Craft Queen  ( the check one is Prima and the spotty one is from Kaisercraft.

He's such a cutie......
 Our other task was to create a set of Christmas Tags.
 For these I've used Tag 1-I've used the chipboard Tags (CB3009 Tags 05), Leaf Spray 02 (CB5082)and Ribbon Banners 01 (CB1204).
Tag 2- I've used an Ornate Frame (CB6002), Ribbon Banners 01 (CB1204) and the Alphabet Flags 01 (CB6084).
I gessoed both tags, then added water colour. With the Noel tag I gessoed the frame then cut the Ornate frame (CB6002) in half and layered the pieces together. With the Noel (CB6084) alphabet flags I stuck them on top of one of the Ribbon Banners (CB1204) to give a great layered effect.
 With the second tag I gessoed some Leaf Spray pieces (CB5082), then added some glossy accents.
The ribbons and silver trim on these two tags are from Craft Queen (except for the lace under the Reindeer) That is from a table runner from Pillow talk on a clearance rack.
Always keep your peepers peeled for a bargain!!! 

Thanks for stopping
Have a great week!!
