The Scrapper CT - 'Dream BIG'

Hi Scrappery fans, Lydia back finally to share a layout using the beautiful Violet Kits. It' been a while since I was here on the blog due to a crazy few months finishing Grade 11 at school, but I am now back and ready for 8 full weeks of creating and sharing.

Today's layout I am sharing features the stunning 'Bohemian Dream' collection from Cocoa Vanilla Studio which is in the Violet Kits. I love this collection which has a lot of purple which is hard to find in scrapbooking collections.

Here is my layout featuring a dream catcher.

I absolutely love how this turned out and I have to say it is one of my favourite layouts.

For this title I used the pink Thickers that came in the kits and the gorgeous Cocoa Vanilla Studio chipboard pieces for the word 'BIG'.  

I layered a few of the floral pieces which can be found in the ephemera pack to place around the dream catcher which is made out of layered patterned paper from the collection as well as those beautiful and delicate doilies which are found in the kits.
I did some fringing to make some feathers to fall off the dream catcher using some of the beautiful patterned paper from Cocoa Vanilla.
Again I have to say this is one of my favourite layouts that I have done and I can't wait to create some more with these kits.
I'll be back really soon with another project.

Scrap Matrix DT - 7 Dots November Challenge

Hi Scrap Matrix blog readers, Lydia back to share my November 7 Dots challenge project.

Now if you are a fan of 7 Dots and know my style and colours I use, you will instantly know that 7 Dot's isn't my typical colour palette and I definitely wouldn't buy it if I had a choice. But by using the 7 Dots collection 'Writer's Block' I created a project that even surprised boss lady Vicki haha.

So here is my project.

To be honest I surprised myself  how easily I was able to create with these rust and neutral colours. I had fun layering too.

I can tell that you are thinking how did you create that rusty cog. Well fun fact it is an old and naturally rusted concrete cutting saw and it worked perfectly for this project and even co-ordinated with the colours in the 7 Dot's collection I was using.

Now aren't these Prima Flowers stunning and perfect for the colours in the 'Writers Block' collection which you can find in the Scrap Matrix store HERE.

I had some fun layering all the different patterned papers from the collection including a die cut tag from the collection.

And how cute are these tickets from the die cut sheet too.

I hope you have all be enjoyed by my creation and all the other creative designers with their projects too for this challenge. If you want to join in on our monthly challenges be sure to head over to our Facebook group Scrap Matrix Shares to share and join in on the fun Scrap Matrix challenges.
Have a great day/evening and I hope to see you all over on the Facebook group.

Scrap Matrix DT - Mixed Media Button

Lydia back, to share my second project for the month. Now you all know I am a lover of bright colours as you have all seen with my previous projects. So I am guessing with no surprise to you I have used my favourite colours yet again.
Here is my project I made using a paper mache button.
First thing I had to do before starting mixed media I had to prime the paper mache button with gesso. I used gesso from my stash but you can find a variety of brands and types in the Scrap Matrix store HERE.
Than I used some of the Scrap Matrix metal trinkets as a stencil when spraying my favourite Dylusions Ink Sprays in the colour Bubblegum Pink and Calypso Teal. When spraying these two colours I made sure they overlapped so I could blend the colours to create a stunning purple colour.
I used some of the gorgeous flowers to give some dimension.
I also added some Micro Beads which come in a variety of different colours to add a bit of shine and texture.
To give my project a more of a sewing feel I added a metal zip which can found in the Scrap Matrix store HERE. I also added a few Vicki Boutin Mixed Media Stickers.
I hope you like this project and I will be back very soon with another project and hopefully I use some other colours haha.
