October Kraft+ Challenge - Tic Tac Toe!

 

Good morning Krafters!

 

 Thank you to all who joined us with last month’s COLOUR CHALLENGE. Your colourful creations were simply gorgeous, I personally love the combination of the blue, red, orange & yellow. The FB Community gallery looks fabulous!

 

October challenge.

 


 

TIC TAC TOE!

 

A bit of fun and games for you this month with TIC TAC TOE! This month pick a row, either up, down or across and use those items on your creation. Too easy!

Starting from the top left...stamping, flowers, paint,
2nd row...doodling, stamps, stencils,
3rd row...patterned paper, brads, ribbon.

Have fun!

Patterned paper, ribbon and brads

 

 

 


I went with paint, stencils and ribbon. Hehe it’s been a while since I’ve used ribbon on anything!

 

 

 

 


I chose the top line, STAMPS, FLOWERS and PAINT, for my art journal page. I used these awesome metallic paints by Cadence, for the background and I stamped and embossed the black flowers over the top, before adding my collaged, imagery!

 

 

 


Using the top row, stamps, flowers and paint.

 

 

 

 


I went with the top row, stamps (onto velum, embossed with white embossing powder and fussy cut), flowers (art created by Del) and paint (mixed with texture paste and scraped through a dot stencil)


 

 


 Hi all.. Here is my layout for the October Tic Tac Toe challenge. I have used the top row of stamping, flowers and paint.. You can see the stamping peeking out from under my embellishments, fussy cut flowers from papers, and the paint is also on the back ground as well as I watered down some white paint and added splatters.. Such a fun challenge this month!


 

 

 

I chose the middle line: Doodling around the edge of my photo, plus stenciling - the chevrons behind the photo and of course, these cute photos of my NZ mob!

I used paint, patterned paper and photos. The paint goes around the edge of the Kraft and on the chipboard and the edges of the photos for something different.

September 2022 Kraft+ - Colour challenge

 

Good morning Krafters!

 

 

Thank you to all who joined us with last month’s HANDWRITING CHALLENGE. We seriously are all too hard on ourselves and our beautifully unique handwriting.

 

September challenge.


 COLOUR CHALLENGE – RED, BLUE, ORANGE & YELLOW + KRAFT

 

This month we have a colour challenge for you, I always love a colour challenge, as some of the decisions are already made for you. There is a number of colours this time, with red, blue, orange and yellow, plus don’t forget the Kraft…that is a must! You can also add black and white.

Have fun!

Ohhh, isn't the new September challenge a beauty this month? To get my colours, I gathered scraps of various papers and overlaid them with crazy stitching.
I added the gorgeous little boy, sat him on a mushroom, gave him balloons and added a title. These are all from the new release All Dressed Up pack from ArtStacks. The title tells us to never forget those magical moments of childhood.
I hope you can create colourful pages this month!

 

 

 


Such a fun colour board - so many options but as soon as I saw it I knew these photos of my great nephew’s birthday would work, the colours of the cake are perfect!

 

 

 

 


I did an art journal page for this month’s challenge, it’s so easy now that Dina Wakley has her various Kraft journal...I really do love the paper in these journals. It was also super easy to create with these colours on an art journal page, using the red, orange and yellow in my background and colouring my girls in blue.

 “I believe in you”.

 

 

 


This month, I chose to do an art journal page, with this bright and happy colour scheme.

I found these tricky colours to use together but that's what I love about these challenges - stretching the grey matter. First time in years I've stamped, coloured and fussy cut!

 

 

 


Such great colors for this month’s challenge to welcome in Spring. I found the papers first and then the photo and added some freshness to the fussy cut flowers with water colour pens.. I hope you can join in with this fabulous colourful mood board this month!

 


 


I had been given the ‘love your life’ die cuts ages ago. It’s amazing what you can dig up from your stash - so that’s what this challenge became for me! And it felt great!

Once again thank you for the invitation. I have been scrapbooking since my first grandchild was born. When I started we had to make most of our own embellishments, it was a challenge. But I loved doing it. Now that the number of grandchildren has increased I have plenty of photos . I loved the colour inspiration for this challenge and couldn’t resist putting a brightly coloured bird on the page. Thanks and Happy Scrapping. Heather B
