Zeus & Zoe - Mixing it Up!

Hi Everyone, 
I am back again to share a mixed media canvas with you all. It is a modern canvas with a touch of Zeus and Zoe vintage. The Zeus and Zoe elements include buttons, laces and book text. This all combined with gel medium, pan pastels and texture paste created this interesting 3D OTP effect.

Did you know the Zeus and Zoe Etsy store is now selling Scrap FX chipboard? Yes!! all the way from my home country of Australia. You need to get your hands on some of this, it is brilliant and very versatile and comes in brilliant array of different styles. 

Have you joined our challenge yet? my super talented DT sister Jaz has set the challenge for this month.

Our challenge for July 15th: 
Create an altered project that is OTP (Off the page). You can be creative and design anything ie jewelleries, cigarboxes, mini albums, altered bottles, just anything that inspire you. Entries must be received by AUGUST 15, 2012.
Thank you for stopping by, wishing you a happy and creative week.

Hello Everyone!!
Rebecca back again with my first blog upload with my new Scrapbookit DT kit. 
Thank you Mel for creating a fab sketch for us all for this months challenge. Please enter this months challenge for your chance to win. All you need to do is email your entry to by the 14th of August. 
This month I have been crafting with Kaisercraft 'The Lakehouse' collection. This collection is soft and whimsical, lots of pretty flowers and many coordinating different embellishments.

For this sketch challenge layout I used one of my wedding photos, ahhh yes this is going back nearly 11 years mind you, still have plenty of photos to scrap mind you.

Materials: Kaisercraft Lakehouse Collection, Lakehouse - Collectables, Lakehouse - Sticker Sheet, twine, Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Vintage Photo.
All of these are available from our Online Store at Scrapbookit.
Janene has set a very interesting card challenge this month. It is to use colour blocking and a stamped image or sentiment. I personally had never heard of colour blocking and was instantly intrigued, I did a quick google image search and soon go the gist of what was needed. Here is my take on the card challenge and my first attempt at colour blocking. 

Many thanks for stopping by for a look, cannot wait to see what you all create for our challenges this month. 

Be happy and creative!!
