I was so lucky to be given the 'Celebration' range of pp's by Authentique Paper as my DT kit for this month at Mad About Scrappin, and after creating several pages from this fanatstic paper range it seems the kit was a sell out, very exciting stuff. I have an uncompleted page which I will show you once I finish it but here is what I created using the range so far and will update the post when its done ;).
In this layout titled 'U&I' I thought the 'Enjoyment' pp leant itself to a bit of fussy cutting which I havent done in ages. I also made a mask from Tim Holtz make 'Your own mask' film using the floral design as inspiration. From the Elements Stickers sheet I used some of the pieced words to form the journaling and to echo a stylised version of brick work which was a fun way to combine the journaling and also add an element of interest.
This lo titled 'Don't Stop Playing' I decided to go with the 'B side' of 'Rejoice' pp, that was a given since I am a huge fan of woodprint patterns tee hee. Anyhoo I used a Page Draft template which will be released tomorrow :) I did some really basic gessoing to tone down the base paper then collaged some blue tissue paper to add a soft layer of colour then using a stencil I inked some black spots to help ground the teeny tiny photo's. Finally I added some female icons, the word art and journaling using some Grafix Rub-Onz transfer film which you can buy at Scrapboutique.
The base of this page was done by collaging some word strips I printed then gessoed over the top to tone them back. I then layered some torn strips of the 'Happy' pp on the left and cut some circular discs to add some interest. I also used some funky little 'Road' washi tape from the lovely Amanda of D-Lish Scraps.
This one is called 'The Makings of a Perfect Duo'. I loved these piccies of my hubby and son so decided that I would make a boy page using the eye catching 'Laughter' pp as the base. I gessoed some white areas then distress inked in black using the 'Mini Gears' Crafters Workshop template. I had to ink it a couple of times heat setting it between each application. Then I used some fabulous chipboard cogs and gears purchased from ScrapFriends.

Lastly these two cards were created using some of the 'Details' Stickers sheet.

So there you have it, my latest lot of DT pages for MAD, hope you like them. xo
