More than Words Mat Challenge

Hello dear friends

I am back sharing another new challenge for the month of May. As we all know May is tge month we say thank you to all the amazing moms out there and just show them how much we appreciate them.

This is exactly what we attempted at More than Words this month. Our challenge is to use the word mother as inspiration and flowers as the creative challenge to create a canvas or layout.

This layout is a tribute to my amazing mum. I was inspired by her love for not only purple but also gardening and flowers.

To create this I used 7Dots Paper and a background using Colour Paste from Colour Blast Australia and Gold Finnabair Prima Marketing Acrylic Paint. 

I fussy cut all the flowers from Sopeso Transparante and heated them to handform a three dimensional effect.

 In addition to these gorgeoys flowers I used chipboard frim Scrap Fx and and Tim Holtz dies. No layout is complete without the journaling so as always I included some of these funky words strips and stickers from Flutterby Designs.

Please check out the inspiration by the rest of the team and be sure to join us this time

Thank you so much for stopping by today. I can't wait to see what you come up with.

Till next time have fun xxx

Kraft Plus May

Good morning lovelies 

Wow what do you know, it's the first of May and to make it even better we have a public holiday here to celebrate it. 

I have missed April as I have been lucky enough to be on Holidays in Japan. What a wonderful time we had but I will tell you all about that in another post.

Today I'd like to share my take on our brand new challenge at Kraft Plus. This month the challenge is to create something that is out of the box. So no traditional square photos or if you make cards no square ones. 

I chose to cut my photos in circles, but not only that I wanted to cut parts of the whole image to enhance the idea of looking at things from another perspective. To emphasize this message I cut 3 square mats for my photos to visually make tge circles pop outside the squares.

Are you inspired yet? Check out the awesome ideas by the rest of the DT girls by folloeing this link

 I can't wait to see what you create so please come and play along with us this time.

Happy krafting xxx
