Art - because I said so!

 Hey There...

Today I have another scrapbook layout, but this one is a little different. I totally ventured into Mixed Media for this one... and it is a little bit messy but its Art.... why? because I said it was LOL

This photo is of our new kitten, Bonnie. She is a British Short hair and she is completely Blue! We love her, she is just so cute, funny and unlike any other cat I've ever had! She is also just a wee bit naughty too!

So I really don't know what I am doing with Mixed Media Art, but I am learning and making a bunch of mistakes at the same time. Its all good though and heaps of fun! 

I thought I would be brave and enter my layout into a couple of challenges. The first one is 
Mixed Media Place. and this is the mood board for my inspiration.

So I guess my inspiration came from the blue water, the soft grey, white shoes with the cut outs and dark blue, with a little green and pink sprinkled. to find out more about the Mixed Media Place challenge click on the link!

The next challenge I want to enter is Lindy's Stamp Gang April colour challenge - lucky me but these two challenges seem to work together!!  This is Lindy's Stamp Gang colour challenge and you can find all the information about it by clicking on the links!

I don't have a lot of pink or green in my layout but the other colours are there:-) To follow the rules of the challenge here are some links to the Lindy's Stamp Gang store with some of the products I used to create my work.

Wow... that's a lot of blue, and pretty much the only colour I have in sprays lol except for a couple of pinks and a purple. I do have all the new magical shakers though.... so pretty!

Here is a list of the others bits and bobs I used to create my page:

Cup Day

Hey There

Today I have a pic of me.... I know that never happens, but I actually do like this selfie... even more so because I got it printed in Black and White!!

 I have a couple of Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays... not many as in maybe 8 lol (that is about to change when the postman brings them to me) so for this layout, I have used a Lindy's MoonShadow in Phantom Fuchsia and a little Lindy's Magical Shaker in Oom Pah Pah Pink. I love how it came out, so sparkly and shimmery.

My papers are Kaiser Craft - PS I love You Collection. I have also used a few Kaiser Die Cuts also from PS I love You collection. The flowers are a bit of a mix of Prima, Kaiser and Club Green. I sprayed the Kaiser and Club Green with my Lindy's Moonshadow in Phantom Fuchsia, so that they would match in with the spraying I did on my base paper. Gotta say, they looks so cool! My vine is a die from Sue Wilson. The butterfly is by Prima and I added a little Cosmic Shimmer Gilding Polish in Silver Hessian which has a slight pink tinge to it. The charm I picked up yonks ago at the Stamp Bug store in Somerset. I tried to tie a double bow with my seam binding... I did it so well it actually is a triple bow!! I also added a tiny bit of Distress Ink Walnut Stain to my edges of the die cuts and my photo. That also matches in with the Moonshadow spray which is brown but has the shimmer from the mica which is the Phantom Fuchsia! Hope you love it all as much as me:-)
