Sketchabilities sketch # 115.

This month for me was all about learning and playing with new techniques. While I have played with ink, paint etc in the past this one for me was definitely ALOT of fun and what a great sketch.
So here is my entry for May #115!

Scrap the Boys May Challenge

With a house full of boys. Scrap the boys is perfect for me, with five boys in the house including the hubby you can safely say scrapping boy layouts is something I have got use to. The theme for this month was grunge and I had a lot of fun playing.

So here is my layout for Scrap the Boys May theme GRUNGE!!!!

Stuck Sketches - May challenge!

HMMM so this challenge I loved the sketch so I thought I am so going to play with this one. Which I did and I loved lots of fiddly bits in this one and teensy tiny, itty bitty elements(the pinwheel and the teeny tiny alphas) and I must say I almost had a Scrappers hissy fit BUT with some perseverance, some deep breathes and at times some walking away from the table. I am Happy to report that I was happy with the end result.

Its funny how the little things like teensy tiny alpha stickers that wont stick or you can't line up in a straight line or a mere Pinwheel to nearly tip you over the edge LOL

Frustrations aside I present to my interpretation of the May challenge by Stuck for Sketches.

Molossi Mood Board Challenge for May.

Being out of the scrappers loop for a while, I have only just found the wonderful world of Molossi and I am a little bit giddy with what I saw in your products available.

With new found mojo a friend who I affectionately have named in the past the Enabler, introduced me to the Molossi challenge and in turn to Molossi.

I have to admit having never attempted a mood board challenge, and only just finding my Mojo after it has been MIA for a very long time, I was a little overwhelmed. BUT, all that changed when I realised the endless possibilities such a challenge presents.

Firstly there was no sketch, and the mood board was whatever the individual scrapper took from it as inspiration, so it was there for the taking to make it my own and once I realised this the possibilities were indeed endless and so began my own personal journey...as only a scrapper can understand.

So here we have my entry for the Molossi Mood Board Challenge for May!!

Purple Pumpkin May Challenge.

Dear Mojo.

Where ever you have been hiding THANK YOU for FINALLY making a safe and active return.

Your sincerely a now enthusiastic scrapper YAYYYYYYYYY.

It is May the 3rd and I am proud to say I am happily creating and on to my second layout for the month...that's TWO in three days.

My scrapping style at the moment I would to define as 'going with the flow'. Setting out with no real plan and just going with where ever the page takes me. As I have already mentioned in my previous blog post, its been a very slow scrapping year but with increased mojo I found my self waiting for the month to tick over so I could see what new online sketches lay in stall.

So eagerly I awaited and my patience was rewarded with an array of challenges to chose from.
