Frosted designs: Texture challenge

Good evening all, 

Just came home from work and i am ready for bed. But we received a new couch today and it is lovely, so as soon as i came home, changed clothes and sat down i fell............yep a sleep!!! 

But woke up again to do my post for Frosted designs. I hope you all have found your way to the shop?
It is lovely, Barb and Amanda have done such a lovely job with the store. The store offers beautiful goodies and different kits. so have a look at the FROSTED DESIGNS STORE!!

The challenge is "creativity with texture"
This is hosted by Lydia Wiley

This is my take on the challenge:

I used a lovely picture of my friend kim and her daughter larissa. 
They had a photo shoot together just before Little Vince was born . 

The papers and flowers just fit perfectly with the picture. Soft tone colors, layers of diferent papers, lace, and of course lots and lots of flowers. 

My texture is created with Gesso, Modelling paste and sand. 
I used it with 2 different masks from my stash, i left it white and after sprayed it with the dylusion ink. 

Products used of the Frosted Designs Store:

Thank you for stopping by and have a great weekend!

Scrap Africa: Washi tape & Twine

Good afternoon ladies, 

The challenge for Scrap Africa for the coming week is :

Washi tape & twine.

I will be honest both items i hardly use, in my mind i new that i have some supply of both but it was a big search in my craftroom. 
Since we moved some items are just hard to find or dont have a spot yet in my room. It is a very tinny space (smaller than before) and this time i am sharing it with my husband. So as you can imagine space is very limited. Anyway after a while searching i finally found some twine that fit with the LO. Still to me it still doesn't but what to do there was no other option so.............this is my take:

I used a picture of lovely Larissa.......inspired by the butterfly on her face i made this LO. 
Lots of fun layers and butterflies. 
In the close ups you are able to see the details. Washi tape are on the side of the picture and Twine is around the picture. 

Paper used: Bo bunny
Random washi tape 

Thank you for passing by, 
Also have a look at the  SCRAP AFRICA BLOG!!
The DT has made a variety of LO's for your inspiration. 

Have a good evening!

Frosted designs: Number challenge and.....

Good evening all, 

Hope you are all enjoying your sunday evening.......

It's my day to reveal what i have made for the Frosted designs number challenge.

This week's Challenge: 
Are your kids back in school yet? Well, with all the back to school sales, signs, and promos it had us thinking about numbers! So, we decided to give you a Number Challenge this week! How easy is that?!We want to see you use a number (or many numbers) in your card, layout, or off the page project! It does not need to be a school themed project... just a project that includes a number! 

This is my take:

I made this card for a baptism that we had yesterday.
I will post more about that later on this week as i made the Invites and Favors. 

And now the big news at Frosted designs:

Now you will be able to get your scrapbooking, card making, and mixed media supplies from us!!  :) We have stores in both The United States and Australia so we will be able to ship worldwide! The store will be open one week from today! We will be sharing information with you next week about some of the things you can look forward to seeing in the store, and starting in October, our kit clubs will be available!  In the mean time, be sure to sign up for our newsletter (using the form on the right sidebar) so that you can receive coupons and be the first to know about the products that are available!

Scrap Afica: Sketch challenge

Good Morning & Happy Month, 

It's already the 1st of September! Oh my where does the time Scrap Africa it's time for a Sketch Challenge. 

This is my take:

The sketch:

In the pictures are my little friend Ava and her sister Natalia, having fun before going to bed. 
I added some texture with the Brick wall to this page, i used my own Tutorial. 
I love the effect the rough sand gives to the page. 
Paper used is from Bo bunny. All chipboards are sprayed with brown dylusions ink and finished off with a gold spray. 

Here are some close ups:

So you have two weeks to upload your page on Scrap africa. 

Thank you for stopping by and have a great sunday.
