Scrap The Boys - May

This months challenge over at Scrap The Boys is to create a grungey/arty/messy layout, the rest of the inspiration is up to you. 

I had fun getting messy with this one. It looks messier in real life than in the photo as the layers seem to blend with the background paper.  I figured I better add some black paint to grunge it up a little, and was so nervous painting it on and smudging it in incase I hated it, but I love the effect! (and there's nothing a little gesso can't fix!)

April - Scrap the Boys

This months challenge at Scrap the Boys is a sketch challenge, with great prizes up for grabs as usual!  

Here is my example using the very cool Kaisercraft 'Base coat' papers.  My 2.5 year old insisted in helping with the misting, hence the broad misting coverage! I softened some of it down with gesso, but overall quite like the effect.

On another note, I have been very honoured to receive a Liebster award from the lovely Lizzy C.

A little bit of info about it:

The Leibster Award was designed to be a blog award in the pay it forward fashion. It is awarded to blogs that have fewer than 200 followers to encourage new visitors to them. Once you have been nominated you award it to five other blogs.

The rules are: post the award on your blog, give the award to 5 bloggers who you appreciate that have fewer than 200 followers then leave a comment on their blogs to let them know you have given them this award.

So here are 5 very talented scrappers which I will pass the award to:

I realise a couple of them have already been given the award (people just kept beating me to it!) but I'd still love you to check out their talent!
I'd like to thank them for sharing their amazing work, and hope you enjoy visiting their blogs as much as I do! :)
