Scrapping Saturday & Stuck?! Sketch Entry

So here I am for another Scrapping Saturday for Mad For Markers…. sharing a different technique with you for using your Copic Markers when it comes to Scrapping. For this layout I was totally inspired by the current sketch over at Stuck Sketches and decided to create my own background, using a stamp and my Copics. I decided to use my Kaisercraft Worn Grid Stamp, I “inked” it up using my 100 marker first and then staggered the stamping across the bottom half of my cardstock. I then cleaned off my stamp using my 0 Blender solution and reinked it with my R27 marker. I again staggered my stamping in between the black grids already stamped. (Realising now… should of taken a photo before I stuck everything down).

To finish off this layout, I coloured up some chipboard stars, again in the R27 and 100. I inked the edges of my journaling also with the R27 and 100.
I love how quickly this layout came together and I was able to coordinate and create my own pattern paper, so quickly and easily. It really pushed me out of my comfort zone but am so happy with the final result, so much so  I think I’ll use this technique again. I also snuck a little Purple Pumpkin in on this layout to, with the o so cute Apple button.

Till next time,

Scrapping Saturday & Some Purple Pumpkin

What a weekend it is here in Sydney… the weather is absolutely miserable….. its a long weekend… and here in our house we’ve struck down with the flu….

Of late… I have no mojo at all … anytime I’ve attempted to scrap all I’ve been able to do is shuffle around paper for awhile and then get up and walk away…. On Thursday I received some yummy Purple Pumpkin and with these inspiring buttons and doilies and their Monthly Challenge Sketch it inspired me to scrap a layout finally.

Today’s share is a layout which uses one of my absolute favourite colour combinations… of red, black and white.

The layout also combines my love of Copics…. which has been used to Colour the Chipboard title…. Mad For Markers have consistently low prices and great customer service. You can see my full post with some tips for colouring your chipboard with Copics over on the Mad For Markers Blog.

Hopefully over this long weekend I can find some more inspiration and scrap a couple more pages…. let’s see how I go… till next time….

Lost…. Mojo

Hey… just wanted to pop in and let you know that I’m suffering from a sever case of lost Mojo….. I can’t colour, I can’t scrap… nothing happening here at the moment. Am going to look about and see if some challenges inspire me to hopefully get me out of this slump. Any suggestions on how you get your mojo going again… please share… or if you know of some great challenge sites… Look forward to hearing some suggestions… I will try anything about now ;-p
