Monday Inspiration with Kerryn

Well good morning WOW fans!
It's Kerryn here and today it's my turn to inspire and intrigue :)

I have been busy creating with this month's new releases and as always, just having a ball. 
So I have a few of my projects to share with you.

This first page I think is my favourite out of these projects and strangely enough, it actually has me in it!! The July school holidays seen us take a family trip to the snow and as you will see, it was a load of fun.
Featured on the page are the chipboard pieces Winter covered with Distress Paints, Stickles and a thick coat of Glossy Accents and the Britney Flourish simply painted.

The Good Times chipboard word has been based with gesso and white ink, then a thick layer of Diamond Stickles.

Loving the glittery finish on the chipboard.

Awesome winter

Surprisingly and possible a world record, I actually feature in the next page too! 
Wonders will never cease. 
Selfie photos taken from a girly trip to Sydney with my big Sis and Mum early this year. 
Chipboard pieces featured on this page are the title A Moment to treasure, covered with Distress Paint, stamped with gold Brilliance Ink and finished with the old Glossy Accents.

The chipboard Dream Catcher was the perfect addition to the paper collection used on this page, painted pink and used as a background to the paper embellishment.

The final page is capturing my beautiful niece remembering the ANZAC's, so proud of her being chosen to place the hand-made wreath at the memorial for her class.

Featured pieces are the Wood Veneer 100 years of ANZAC covered with gold ink, the poppy from the Anzac Pack and poppies from the Anzac Day with Soldier. The poppies were painted red, outlined with black pen and then finished with Glossy Accents.

Design Team Favourite layouts

Favourite Layouts

It is hard to narrow it down to just a few, but I thought today we would revisit some of our work that we are particularly proud of. I think they deserve another viewing.

Tracey Henly


I really love how the flowers turned out after I wet them and scrunched them up.


I love how young and funky this turned out.

Sandra Henderson-Staples


The background and the flow of this layout is perfect.

The unconventional items used for the background just make this layout pop.

Tess Pretty-McMahon


Gorgeous Photo veneers left natural, classic layout.


This I love because the circle elements on the page, from the background to the chipboard pieces brings this layout together beautifully.

Kerryn Fry


This is fresh and very girly, the veneers and chippy blend wonderfully for a pretty layered effect.


Another excellent example of how the repetition of circles give a great impact on a layout.

Tanya Kember


Tanya is our project life Designer, you can see each pocket is a layout of its self lots of veneers and custom chipboard goes into making these awesome pages.



Lisa Oxley


Now here is a designer with a very distinctive style, colour, colour , colour. Mixed media backgrounds and a definite wow factor.....pun intended.



  I hope you enjoyed revisiting some of our work as much as we enjoyed creating it.
Bye for now
Tracey and the Team.

Grateful

Hey there :)
Jojo here today with a catchup of a few layouts.

First up is a patchwork inspired layout and the cutest little veneer bow

Next is 'Summer is calling' chipboard with some clouds and a cute little whale

Next is a layout I created after our WOW Design Team retreat. It includes the custom cut, a veneer paperclip and a veneer heart.

Next is a layout created with the messy circles
And this layout is created with the negative shapes from the messy circles. They come nested together in three different sizes, so I've just used the leftover chipboard after I removed the messy circles - pretty cool hey??!!

Last but not least, is a sneak peek at a pocket letter I've designed for a class at Pages2Scrap






Happy creating everyone!!! :)

WOW with Tess

Tess here this week... It feels like forever since I shared any of my Words or Whatever goodness! I have been a bit busy in the background at the moment trying to finish off all of those unfinished projects. You know, the ones where they were a great idea at the time and the next great thing came along and you just didn't finish the first one.... Please don't tell me I am alone in having a cupboard full of these?
Any way, here are some of the more recent layouts for your inspiration. I have been playing around with some of the older pieces of chipboard in my stash and using the up. This will always justify being able to by more!!

PICTURES OF YOU

One thing I really love about the WOW products is the title. They make pulling a page together really easy. This piece has been coloured with paint.

#KEEPINITREAL


There are 3 pieces of chipboard on this page. All have been painted. I love the bubbles panel and how it adds another layer of dimension to this layout. The other two pieces are the tille, '#keepinitreal', and the 'today' piece.

JAMIES


This layout has used a bubble panel piece, which has been cut down into several pieces. This changes up the same old and makes the pieces go further. All pieces have been painted.

All of the August new releases are now live on the Words or Whatever website. Go and have a look as these will be coming to your local scrap stores very soon. Don't forget that we are now also on Instagram and Pinterest.
