Scrap Jacked for August ...

I look forward to seeing what the Design Team on Scrap Jacked come up with each month and they have not disappointed me yet.  My biggest problem is making a choice of which lovely layout or card I will lift.

This month I decided on this layout from Bec.

and here is my rendition of it - keeping pretty true to Bec's original although a male version.

All you need is Love ....

As the song says "All you need is Love" and with my daughter and her boyfriend I think it is clearly there for all to see.  It was fun putting this layout together for the August Scrap that Song challenge plus it gave me an excuse to slip in a Beatles classic ...

Revisiting Florence ...

I'm continuing scrapping my honeymoon album again with photographs that feature Florence, Italy as it so happens the inspirational photograph on Archi Scraps this month reminds me very much of the windows on the Ponte Vecchio bridge that spans the River Arno.  This medieval stone bridge once housed all manner of business premises, (initially butchers and food merchants) but now houses tenant jewellers, art dealers and souvenir sellers.

I've used colour tones similar to those in the inspiration piece and again kept the layout simple so it will blend in with the existing pages in this album.

Let's celebrate on From Screen to Scrap ...

This month on From Screen to Scrap it is all about BIRTHDAYS - our 3rd birthday to be exact.

Your challenge this month is to make a movie poster like the one above from '5 Starbaby.com" customise it to suit a birthday theme.


Use any of the sketches by our Design Team members.

Here is my sketch and the layout made from it.

I have also done a layout using the left side of Shazza's sketch.

I hope you can join in with us this month.

Artastic in August ...

Join us on ARTastic this month where you will be inspired by a wonderful tutorial by our featured Creative Team member Helene Bogren where she shows you step by step how to create backgrounds for your layout in a mixed media style.

This month is all about getting art with mixed media.  You can use the tutorial to inspire you to create a layout using stencils, paint and ink or you can go the more traditional route and use this inspiration piece by Swedish artist, C O Hulten to help you produce your page  ...

... or you can be adventurous and do both.

Hope to see your lovely work posted on ARTastic.
