Going for Gold

Hi guys, 
Just popping by to show you some layout I created using my latest obsession- GOLD.
The first is for November's colour challenge at Scrap Friends. This isn't usually a colour combo I'd use but I was super keen to try it out and I really LOVE the result. As you can see I've opted for a mixed media background.

I also created a layout inspired by this AMAZING mood board over at Jot. I loved the colours so much I knew I needed to have a go at the challenge.
So here is my take. I took inspiration from (1) by creating a tissue paper background and tearing sections back to achieve a similar look/feel. I was also inspired by the ombre flowers and obviously the colour palette.

I have one more to show you which is for 123. The challenge was TEAL, STAMPING AND "COOL". No gold on this one!
I created the background by applying white tissue paper with modelling paste, spraying it with mist and then tearing off some sections of tissue paper when I realised I had added too much colour. I quite like the result.
And a close-up of a gorgeous mini runner from Charm. They are so cute!

Thanks for stopping by!
Can you believe it's almost December? So looking forward to it!
Have a great weekend!

SUYS November Challenge

Hey guys! Can you believe it is November already? Well it's already flying by but you still have plenty of time to complete the challenge at SUYS!
Novembers challenge is to use PAINT & WASHI TAPE! Two of my favourite things to use on my layouts! And super easy too!
Here's my sample!

I created these 'bullet holes' using eyelets and Mister Huey's mist. I love that I was able to use some old  supplies in a unique way! I was so excited when I came up with the idea, it suits the layout perfectly! (I have two 'bullet holes' in the side of my head, which you can't see in the photo).

The photos are from a recent Halloween party I attended! I think this is the first time I've actually dressed up for Halloween. Only deciding about 6 hours before the event that I would attend it, I created this zombie look at the last minute with make-up and my friend had some watercolour I used for blood!

Sponsoring the challenge this month is A Lil' Somethin' whose flair I used as my handmade embellishment. The Dusty Attic are also donating a prize to one of our lucky winners. So make sure you enter to go in the running to win these awesome prizes from our generous sponsors.

Thanks for stopping by today, I would love to see your layouts linked on the SUYS blog soon!
Happy Scrapping,
Sophie xx
