123 - May

The challenge this month 123 is awesome .. the colour green + the word "time" + journaling as the technique. So, so versatile! I could scrap with this challenge criteria 'til the cows came home!


I had a lot of fun creating this layout. I've been wanting to use my watercolour pencils with some templates to create a 'sketchy' effect for ages and finally did so on this layout with a TCW 12x12 Swiss Dots template and a black watercolour pencil. It worked perfectly. Well exactly how I have always envisaged it! I figured I'd take it that extra step further by colouring in the chipboard with the black pencil as well. I wasn't at all sure how it would look but figured if it was awful I could easily go over it with a paintbrush and a little water to smooth it out. As it is I loved the way it looked and I can't wait to colour in some more chipboard! But I'm going to need to expand my watercolour pencil selection. I have a decent size tin of them but think I need a lot more!!!

I used lots of D-lish Scraps products, as usual, on this layout. Its soooooo not hard to continually promote products that you love!! On this layout you'll find .. plenty of Washi Tape, a white paper Daisy (currently one of my favourite flowers), Freckled Fawn Enamel Dew Drops (just a few scattered here and there), lime Forget Me Nots (we all know how much I love these!), black Mini Roses of which I just can't get enough, and a Flair Button from the Words of Wisdom pack.

I hope you'll give the 123 challenge a go this month. You can find all the details HERE. Good luck, have fun and happy scrapping!   :)
