OOH....just in the nick of time!!!

Life once again has been extremely crazy here this week. Working, easter, gastro (yuk!) , holidays, more work...you know how it is!!! And I still have two units of study to finish before the end of these holidays...AARGHHH!
But I needed some creative time so last night I was in the zone big time and managed to squeeze a few last minute challenges in from last month that thankfully had extended deadlines and even a new challenge for this month!!!
So before I go and and share more Escape 2 create layouts I want to share these last minute challenge layouts.

This one was for "Scrap the boys". The challenge was a recipe challenge using things I love to use!

                        2 Photos 6x4 or smaller
                                  Chipboard
                                  Washi Tape
                                 Mists/Paints


                                                  And my layout!
Lots of misting, doodling, washi tape and an awesome "Cherry Flair" by Piece of cake designs!
Everything on the checklist too!



This one was for "White with one". The challenge was to use
                                    WHITE + BROWN + DOODLING
So when I saw that I had to include doodling I knew I had to give this ago!!!!

Recently my hubby had a go of the old style hard hat diving at Port Arlington pier. I got some amazing photos so I knew this was a perfect challenge to scrap this one! 


I have always doodled on my pages in fact not one layout doesn;t have doodling! But lately I have been using a grey lead pencil to add doodling details like this...... my new addiction!!!


I also managed to new monthly challenges this week.
This one was for a site I used to be a DT for 123 challenge blog
The challenge threw me at first I must admit but after seeing Amanda Hall's awesome bright layout it inspired me to create my usual bright style even with the colour!





* Our colour = Duck Egg Blue
* Our Word = Today
* Our Technique = White Wash




                                              "TODAY IS FULL OF POSSIBLE.........."

Loved this quote I found . I have used bright yellow paint and white washed over it with gesso and used the duck egg blue to paint my circles.

And lastly I had a go at the challenge at "Kraft it up" this month. The challenge:
This month we want to recycle some of that product packaging and use it on your layout, the only must have is that you use Kraft Cardstock or Kraft Patterned Paper!

Now I have to admit this is easy when your daughter has the same name and initials as a manufacturer!!! 




I LOVE these neon sprays by SEI!! How cool are they??? 
Anyway thanks for popping by, Eb x
