Mixed media/medium

This fortnights challenge, was a challenge.  I needed to step outside of my comfort zone and just be brave to play with as many products as possible.  I filled my table with lots of colourfully wonderful products and just took a deep breath and jumped right in.  Perfect pearls, smooch spritz, distress inks, the new markers, glue and seal Matte, and aquacolor crayons were all used in this project.  Along with double sided papers, and chipboard.

I am not normally a patient person.  I am not a fan of waiting for things to dry.  When I am in the creative zone I like to keep the flow going.  I had to learn to stand back and wait.  Remind myself not to touch and just let the products dry.

Well, I am more than happy with my first ever go.  I know I will more than likely try it again soon.  Its a great way to use up scraps and all the gorgeous products.

Challenge: BRADS OR EYELETS?????

Today is the day I set a new challenge for the fortnight.  Life here has sent us some interesting turns this past fortnight.  So, I needed to catch up and get something created for this.  BRADS, won.  That is what I ended up using.  The eyelets I had, just did not seem to suit the layout.

Hubby was super excited about being offered the opportunity to ride this vintage BSA 1915 motorcycle, in the Bay to Birdwood 2012. He even went out and purchased the helmet and goggles just for the occasion.  It turned out to be a very good family fun day.  I have quite a few photos, that I would love to scrap from the day.  Glad to have the 1st layout done.  I will just add some journalling to finish it off.

Oh, boy am I having fun with the new alcohol markers. I'm a lot like a kid in a candy store lol. So many beautiful colors. And they match all our essential 12x12 paper range. The makers have a pointed end and a wide chisel end. Nice and easy to hold. And they glide beautifully on our papers.

The three cards below are not entirely finished. I just had to show you all the coloring in. I am sure you are going to see a lot more colored images from me.
