Art Journal Swap ~ The Story Teller~ Collaboration with Suzanne Johnston

Hi everyone,
Im back with another art journal layout for my collaboration with my fellow design team member Suzanne Johnston.
Earlier in the year, Suzanne and I swapped an envelope full of die-cuts and prompts and today I picked one of these prompts to make an art layout.

The art journal that I am working in is one I made myself and if you are interesting in making one, please check out my DIY tutorial HERE.
From the prompts, I selected this dress which has a very meaningful sentiment.

"Elegance is not standing out, but being remembered".

I teamed it with a stamp from my collection called Lady Jude by Kaisercraft.

For the background, I chose the color Antique Linen from Set 3 of the Distress Crayon Range by Ranger.
I then added texture paste through 2 stencils:
- Mosaic by Tim Holtz / Ranger - 03 Mixed Media text by Cadence

Next I removed some of the texture paste text and stamped this rose and coloured it in using Distress Crayons from Set 2 (Festive Berries & Peeled P…

National Scrapbooking Day 2018 ~ Rescrap your old layout #4 ~ Blessed Happiness

Hey everyone,
Are you ready for my 4th and final sketch for National Scrapbooking Day 2018?

This is the original layout that I wanted to re-scrap!

Ehm. I did manage to matt the photo but thats about all I did. So im not sure this even qualifies as a "re-do" LOL
Firstly, the photo proportions are off! Its too large and it was cropped too close and a bit of centre.

I re-printed it and left it at it's original measurements. For the extra space on the right, I decided to utilise it as journaling space and I love how it turned.
This sketch is AWESOME for scrap pieces of papers that you want to use up. I still ended up using Echo Park's "I'd rather be crafting" patterned papers from the May Kit and I adore how well thy all go together and co-ordinate very nicely.

I decided to place a piece of vellum so that my sentiment would stand out.

The sentiment and all the "bits and pieces" on each square come from the Crafty Girl Sticker Pad by Simple Storie…

National Scrapbooking Day 2018 ~ Rescrap your old layout #3 ~ JOY

Hey everyone,
I have another re-scrap for you!

This is the one I am most embarrassed to share with you!!

It looks like I was experimenting with stamping and chalking and well, it doesn't look too good to me right now (I don't know if it ever did).
Here is the sketch I will be following.

I started off choosing a pink and teal color scheme for the layout.
I then went about cutting strips of patterned paper from the I'd rather be Crafting Echo Park collection in the May Kit from Aunty Vera Scrap & Craft.

The strips are 6" tall and vary in wide from 1" to 3".
The teal paper is 5.75"H x 11.5"W.
I also decided that the picture need another patterned paper to matt behind it.
(although I did trim the matt a little bit more after taking this picture as I realised it was a little too large).

Next, I dipped into my stash and I mean my OLD collectables because I pulled out this 2014 collection from Kaisercraft called Hello Sunshine- full of cute little a…
