Sawyers Place Washi Tape Share

Hi All,
back again with a couple of pages made for Sawyers Place, just love their Washi Tapes!!!
This first layout is of my youngest, it was this photo that made me realize I needed to cut my hair!!!

This is made mainly with Washi Tape complemented with strips of patterned paper.
 I have put the washi on white card stock first making it easy to
  punch out those circles.
 Tried my hand at carving my own chevron stamp, love how it tuned out and enjoyed the whole process, have stamp patterns running through my head!!!!

Love this camera stamp I find myself reaching for it constantly!
 The Chippies are ScrapFX painted with red paint first then sprayed with Mister Hueys White Calico.

Used lanky alphas and arrow chippies.
 The next layout, I tried out another handmade stamp made using a ScrapFX template have I told you I really love doing the carving thing? I thought it would be too fiddly and timely for me but it was so super easy!!!
Out for publication. 
Will be back 
again soon.

 The camera stamp is from Amy Tangerines' line. I can see it becoming a fave, ....how many cameras can you have on the one page????

More ScrapFX chippies (Chevron Border and Heart)
this time embossed imperfectly then sprayed with mist
then air dried, leaving the colour to "pool".

There's my handmade stamp!
 Don't you just love the groovy camera stamp?!

The title is Itty Bitty alphas from ScrapFX of course!!!

So that is about all I have for you, maybe I could do a tutorial on carving the stamps what do you think?
Anyhow have a great week people, I'll be back!!! so don't stay away too long!

I am Back! Time to Catch up!

OK so I have been back for a while I must admit, but have found it so hard to get into the swing of things generally not just here on my Blog! However, just because I have not been around here does not mean I have nothing to show, so now time for a catch up.

First of all I have been playing around with the Book of You Kit from the Scrap Boxx.... so much fun was had! I loved it all, created 2 pages and still have so much left over for more! Head over to the Boxx if you want instructions for both of these pages. Without further ado here are the pages:
I used the same chippie from ScrapFX  as the title
for both pages to show how you can get 2 uses out of the same piece!
 I also sprayed the polaroid camera (included in the kit) with the Mister Hueys White Calico and highlighted the details with a gel pen. I really love how it turned out!

Just added paint and splatters to the title, filled in the details with a gel pen so easy!
The first spray of white on the chippie (from the last page)
 created a great base for the paint so that all it took
 was one coat and it was done!
The 2nd page was made along the same lines as the first, just making the most of the awesome papers in the kit by using strips, now you know why I have so much left overs!
So that is it for this post I do have a few more things to share in the next few days including, some fun I had with the new Sawyers Place Washi Tape!!! Stay tuned!
