A Flair for the Eclectic

If you are hopping with Paper Issues then you'll already know

I have used Echo Park's Everyday Eclectic range, being eclectic of course ;-)

123 Shades of Purple

I had a fun play with the 123 challenge, purple is not an easy colour for me to work with but I love chevron and still have a few more copies of these cute pics of my girl and her bestie sooooo....

It isn't quite that yellow irl, not sure what happened there. The chevron is done with a Crafter's Workshop stencil and a plum inkpad. Lots of Tattered Angels mists and Dymo as usual, sort of my signature now.
Thanks so much for dropping by

Clearly a Paper Issues Blog Hop

'I Can See Clearly' is the new theme up at Paper Issues.
And that means a new mini hop - Yay! And a giveaway - Double Yay!!
So if you have a project using anything involving transparencies, vellum, clear acrylic, acetate, whatever you can see through, then be sure to link it up.
Now become a follower of the PI blog and the PI Facebook page
and my blog (not compulsory but very much appreciated :-),

This is the prize, honestly, I want this one! It has a labeller!!!

Lowri at PaperVine (#4 on the hop) has donated it so be sure to follow her too.

For my pages I used Hambly overlays (grateful I have a few still stashed away)
they are gorgeous in both quality and design.
On the first page I used an older transparency with frames
(I journalled on the big frame with an American Crafts Slick Writer)
and a new transparency with black chevron.

And for the second page I used the black and white chevron patterns overlaid on each other,
the effects that you can get are so cool!

Enjoy the hop and be sure to link something up at PI,
you really want to be in on the chance for this prize!

NEXT STOP..........

Sketches with a Twist

A new DT position and challenge for me working with sketches.
It's something I don't normally do so it might just stretch me a little creatively,
that's gotta be a good thing right?

It has a lot of scope for making it your own while still using all the elements.
 I found it very easy to work with. I rotated it once to the left but kept the original
positioning of the banner under the photos then added a bit more banner
to the upper left corner to provide flow and unity to the page.
The twist was to add doodling.
 The base is some of the 'ouchless cardboard' from the Gauche Alchemy Etsy shop,
they have some fantastic and unique products, you should go check it out.

Thanks so much for dropping by,
be sure to link up your creation here if you use the sketch,
there's a prize up for grabs :-)
