Scrap Camp

Hi All,

This weekend I was fortunate enough to be invited to a lovely scrap camp organised by my friend at the Manjedal Activities Centre. It was a lovely setting and we even had a visit from some of the locals. This Kookaburra came and sat on the rail outside the room we were scrapping in, he wasn't at all concerned when I went out the door by him to get this photo.... in fact, I think he was posing for me!

But what was really special was seeing several Blue Wren flitting around, sadly they moved to quick to get a good photo but I did managed to get this one. They really were amazing, such a vivid blue! I was told that this was because it's mating season and they get more vivid in colour to attract a mate.

My friends husband very kindly came along and acted as cook, bag carrier and guide. He took us out for two walks through the bush which were great. These are some flowers I saw when we were out in the morning. We saw kangaroos when we went out in the afternoon, but I wasn't quick enough to get a photo.

Sadly though my back decided it wasn't going to play the game anymore so I had to come home on Saturday afternoon, however, I did manage to get a few pages done before I left. Here's what I came up with.

I started this first page at the Inspired Friday at Inspired Craft at the beginning of the month but I hadn't had a chance to finish it. The paper is a range from My Minds Eye, it's absolutely beautiful.

This little birdie is on the paper, so I cut it out and mounted it up.

The title has been cut using Cuttlebug "Hippie Chick" and sprayed with "Olive Vine" Glimmermist. The large chipboard leaves are Dusty Attic sprayed with "Haunted Shadows" Glimmermist, with small black rose buds twisted around them.

This next page is based on palette #23 from The Colour Room

Here's my take on it. The photo's are of me when I was little. The paper I've used is one of the older Kaiser ranges that I had in my stash.

These flowers were white Prima flowers which I've sprayed with "Dragonfly" Glimmermist (large flowers) which I got from a fantastic new online store called Scraptique, and the small ones have been sprayed with "Jack O Lantern" Glimmermist. The leaves are made from muslin which I've sprayed with "Key Lime Green" Glimmermist (encase you hadn't noticed ... I have a thing for Glimmermist!)

This Butterfly is a Dusty Attic "Flutterby", I've inked it with white ink, and then used a paint brush to paint Dragonfly & Jack O Lantern Glimmermist and then sprayed "Marshmallow" Glimmermist over the top, I'm rather pleased with the result.

This next page was made using paper from the Creative Imaginations "Breathless" range (also available from Scraptique), and a piece of Collections 6x6 paper.

The title and the fence are both Dusty Attic sprayed with "Suede" Glimmermist.

This is the last one I promise, both these papers are Basic Grey, from my stash, and while I don't go for Pink it just worked perfectly with this photo of Tulips I took at Araluen.

This page was great, 'cos it used up a lot of things I had in my stash, such as the pin and the flourish.

These flowers are the new Maya road ones ... which are so cute!

Well, that's all for now, thanks for stopping by.

Until next time,

Kaye :o)
