Monday Inspiration with Kerryn

Well hello WOW faithfuls, welcome to the blog on this chilly June morning.

I have a few projects to share with you today that I have put together over the past few weeks. Hopefully they will inspire you to sit down at your craft desk and enjoy some creative time.


Good Times
Getting my grunge on with this page using the chipboard 6x6 brick panel and cogs to bring my page to life. The brick panel has been slightly altered and backed with black cardstock to act as a background for the photos. The cogs coloured with a few different inks to co-ordinate with my page.

My second page features my big sister and her gorgeous grandchildren (my great-nieces)

Happy girls are the prettiest

Loving all of the WOW pieces used here. The mini words, hearts, doily, wood veneer dragonfly and beautiful hearts. Love the metallic gold ink finish and the Distress paint and glossy accents on the heart piece

My final page and definitely my favourite! I love looking back over photos of our remarkable boy. He is growing up so quickly and I am thankful for all of the photos I have snapped. This page captures just a few.

Pictures of you

The perfect title piece 'Picture of you' has been covered with Distress Paint and the mini words have been simply inked black. Love the different font in these words.

That's all from me today, I hope you have enjoyed my pages. Remember to ask your local scrapbook store for WOW chipboard.

Playing with a new technique learnt in a Lisa Pate class.

Then trying the technique on a layout the new mixed altamatz"s are fabulous for mixed media backgrounds. I have used the different elements in the yellow background circles.


zig zag arrow pointers

I also used the left over chipboard from around the messy circles pack.

I used the AltaMATZ and black pen to trace my pattern onto the background cardstock and then used watercolour paint to add some colour.

Relax and Get Arty

Howdy Bloggers, Lisa Here .
with a WOW update.
Im sorta kinda a little obsessed with this stencil.

I have two layouts to share and both pieces showcase this cool stencil.
With the 1st, I have textured the page with modelling paste, 
then used acrylic paint to add some brightness to the page.
Added a WOW relax chippy to add a little more dimension to the overall feel.
then worked in a little Scrapwitch flavor to the piece by
 adding non traditional scrapbooking products , like plasterers tape, muslin and tissue paper .


I love finding shapes within the background, that lead to journal spots and trails .

 Another layout, same textured background , different colour application.
Dylusions ink this time , with a fine water spritz to allow the colours to blend and flow over the page.
A little tissue paper to support the coloured inks and a couple of rad pieces of WOW product to add to the overall look and feel. How cool are the chippy industrial circuits .. love them .. And the wood veneer Selfie title to support my photo. Rad.


Thanks for dropping by , I hope you have a creative day .

Happy Long Weekend

Tess here today with a couple of long weekend shares. I hope to give you some simple inspiration for anyone that is spending some time relaxing playing with paper, glue and of course, WOW products.
 
Programmed for Mischief

 
This layout is using plenty of WOW products. The 'Programmed for Mischief' (wow2364) chipboard title has been painted to suit the layout. The stars (wv214), paperclip (wv222) and arrow (wv018) are all light wood veneer and left raw.
 
Keepin it Real

 
There are a couple of WOW pieces on this page, all chipboard and all coloured to match the papers. I love the #keepinitreal title. Its perfect for those layouts about everyday life. The 'today' (wow2330) title is a new release. The other piece used is a 4x4 circle panel (wow2116).
 
All of these products are available at your local scrap store.

New Release Prototype Lighthouse Stencil By Jo Kinder - Layout by Lisa Oxley

Hello Folks , Thanks for dropping by the WOW Blog .
 Lisa Here , with a little sneak of new things on the horizon.
I love my Friends..and how awesome is it when you comment that you really need a lighthouse stencil and one friend creates it for you and other friend makes it with her wizbang cutting machine... Awwwwwww goosebump moment.
So of course,I really couldnt wait to use it,and at the recent WOW DT retreat I was stoked to be able to spray it onto some white cardstock and start about working a little Scrapwitch magic .
I used some of my normal essentials , like muslin, tissue paper and my black journal pen . I love the end result of this layout and cant wait to get my hands the final lighthouse stencil and maybe create a mini album about my families life in the lighthouses of Australia . *this stencil is a prototype 

Thanks for dropping by .x

DT FAVOURITE NEW RELEASE

The Design Team's favourite pieces of this months new release are:

Frame WOW2346 and Mini Frame WOW2345



Today Corner - WOW2344

They were all designed by Sandra Staples for WOW.


First up we have a page from Sandra using the big frame.


Second up we have a page from Tess using all of the favourites.  Tess has cut up both frames to use in a completely different way!


Next up we have Kerryn who has used all of the pieces as well but has kept the frames one piece.


And lastly, we have a double page layout from Tracy.  Tracy has used the large frame by cutting it up to create corners (similar to Tess), the mini frame as a frame.


Hope all these pages inspire you to use the Design Team's favourite new release for this month.

100 Years of Anzac...

Hi there WOW fans!

It's Tarrah back with you today...sadly this will be my last project share with you as its time for me to take a step down from the WOW team....I have had such a wonderful time here on the WOW team for almost 2 years and I want to thank Suzanne and Sandra for asking me to join and all the other DT girls for being so wonderful to work with too!


We visited my home town for Anzac weekend and so I managed to get some great shots of us commemorating 100 Years since the First World War. We raised the flag, went to watch the march, listened to the service and even planted some Poppy Seeds in my parents garden too!

WOW products used:

Thank you so much for joining me on the WOW blog for my last time...I am sure I will see you all around the scrapping world!

Happy creating...
