September 30th

Well here we are at the end of another month for 2014!
Hello and welcome to the final post for September on the WOW blog.

Kerryn here to share one more page before the October New releases are unveiled.

More snaps from the snow to share, of course.
I love using Wood Veneer products simply because there are so many different finishes you can apply to them. 

The Wood Veneer Smile has been covered with Stickles for a little sparkle and the Wood Veneer Mini Polaroid Frame has been swiped with Distress Ink for a hint of colour, still allowing the wood to shine through.

September 28th

Good morning WOW fans, Kerryn back to share a few more projects with you.

At the end of August, we did a quick family trip over to Victoria to give our boy his first taste of snow. Needless to say, he loved it and I got some great snaps as well.

My first page features some fabulous Wood Veneer pieces the  Ampersand and the title piece So Awesome were left naked to compliment the colour palette.

The Messy Star chipboard frame has been simply covered with gold ink and used to frame his golden smile.

The second page is a beautiful snap of my Mum with Harrison and how's the amazing back drop of Lake Mountain.

I have used the 6x6 Background chipboard panel as a feature behind the photo. It was covered with gold ink first and then randomly coated with gold embossing powder.

Tess here today with my share for the Stuck Sketches anniversary challenge which Words or Whatever are a sponsoring. I loved the sketch we had to work with. It was really easy to incorporate plenty of washi tape (and don't we all have so much of that).

This is the sketch

Watching in Wonder
Using chipboard Winged Heart Flourish and light wood veneer Arrow

Both Words or Whatever items have been embossed in aged gold. How beautiful and intricate is the winged heart flourish?! I could use this one over and over again!

You have until the 29th to get your entries in over on the Stuck Sketches site. You may be lucky enough to pick up the generous Words or Whatever prize pack.

Hi WOW fans!

Tarrah here with you again today sharing another layout using some of the WOW new release chipboard!

'Make A Wish'

As soon as I saw these gorgeous chippie blooms from the Bloom Pack I knew I wanted to use this photo as the blooms remind me so much of dandelions!
I got to work doing some embossing using a Versamark Watermark inkpad, some Tinby Designs Metallic Melts in Glistening Snow and my heatgun....

I deliberately left some of the melts unmelted so that it had some texture just like dandelions have that brushed look...

Thank you so much for stopping by the WOW blog again today....I hope I have inspired you to order some WOW chippie from your LSS!

See you soon...

September 21st

Well Hello there, Kerryn back with my second take of this month's Stuck?! 1st Sketch.

I decided to turn the sketch on it's side for this take.
Here's the sketch again

You might remember my page from a few weeks ago when I used the heart and wings of the Winged Heart Flourish. I've finally used the flourish part on this page. I have used green ink for a base coat and then covered them with Stickles for a textured finish. Once dry I then re-applied the green ink.

Rare photos of the boy and I, Dad's turn behind the camera cause he wouldn't skate. Two falls by Harrison and one fall by me, resulting in a very bruised bum :)

First time ice skaters

Kerryn back again today, with my first take on the Stuck?! Sketch that WOW is sponsoring this month.

I am also a member of the Stuck?! team, so I got to do 2 takes on this fabulous birthday sketch, the other version I will share with you in a few days.

This is the sketch.

I have kept the Wood Veneer Chevron Strips and the Wood Veneer Laugh from Wood Veneer Love Laugh Smile pack completely natural, think it made them pop more against the colours of the page

Good morning WOW fans, it's Kerryn here to share a layout with you show-casing more of the August New Releases.

This page was created for my take on the latest challenge over at Scrap the boys. 

I've used the Small Mixed Circles Panel & Large Mixed Circles Panel on my page. The large panel has been covered with brown ink and used as a background matte for the photo.

  photo _DSC0007_zps283845d6.jpg

The Small panel has been covered with Gesso first and then slightly dismantled. Once I had the pieces stuck down I coated each 'bubble' with Stickles.

I've also added the Wood Veneer Stars swiped with Distress Inks and then doodles a black stitching.

Hi WOW fans!

It's Tarrah with you today.....this month WOW is sponsoring the sketch challenge blog Stuck?! Sketches.....the WOW design team were asked to join in and scrap a layout using their September sketch.....

This is my interpretation of the sketch.....

'Sweet Ride'

I have inked all of the WOW chipboard on this layout except I left the wood veneer thumbs up icon natural...the large messy star frame and the small messy circle frame are inked with black Staz-On ink and the 'So Awesome' title (designed by me) is inked with green Versacolour ink....

This style of layout is a little different from what I would normally create but I sometimes like going a bit more freestyle!

We hope you join in with the Stuck?! sketch this month....don't forget you can win yourself some gorgeous WOW products by entering!

Thanks for stopping by the WOW blog today!
