Red Earth Scrapping - October Challenge

It's October... seriously how did that happen!!  But I am SO excited it has because there is SO much happening this month, starting with my beautiful soul sister Michelle arriving from QLD to visit!!

Anyways... beginning of the month brings CHALLENGES!!  The first of mine is up at Red Earth now:

My hubby and I, our god-daughter took this pic yesterday! I like having more pics of us two... will try and make it happen more often!

This LO has Graphic 45 ABC Primer Papers, Dusty Attic Chipboard and Green Tara Flowers and Trims!

 Green Tara Apple Blossom, Cherry Blossoms and Roses.

Dusty Attic October Month Word & Nameplate #4.

Hero Arts "Timely Bird" Stamp

Mmmm more Green Tara goodness with a cute Dusty Attic Branch tucked in.

I have used:
Graphic 45 ABC Primer - Happy Go Lucky & The Three R's
BoBunny Et Cetera - Watermark
Green Tara Apple Blossom, Roses & Cherry Blossoms - Peach/White
Green Tara Lace Trim & Cobweb Trim
Dusty Attic Chipboard - October, Branch & Nameplate #4
Hero Arts Timely Bird Stamp
KaiserCraft 13th Hour Stamps
Stazon Ink - Timber Brown
Martha Stewart Cherish Border Punch
Tim Holtz Distress Stains - Weathered Wood, Vintage Photo & Broken China
White Acrylic Paint
Pearl GlimmerMist
Icicle GlimmerGlam

Technique Tip: 
The Peach/White Cherry Blossoms were touched with the Distress Stains and then sprayed with Pearl GlimmerMist so the stains ran and changed the colours of the blossoms to suit my layout.  You could create the same with the distress ink pads, just swipe the pads over the tips of the flower petals and spray with either water or glimmermist!

Thanks for visiting, take care and


  1. Love the effect you created with the ink and mist. Glimmer mist makes everything better, hahaha! (I might be a little biased). Love all the texture you created here too.

  2. Wow! I love fabric on here. Your flowers are amazing. Lovely picture of the two of you.
