Scrapping Outback February 2015 Challenge


It is February and time to reveal our White With a Twist Challenge!

So the challenge is:

Create a layout inspired by ALL the colours in this photo and you MUST use at least one piece of chipboard.

You must use WHITE combined with the colours above. You can use printed paper as long as these colours are the main focus of the paper. There can be other colours on the printed paper, but not too much to take away from the colours in the inspiration picture.

You can use anything to create these colours like mists, inks or paints. 

You can use a small amount of black/brown just for a little stamping, inking, journaling or just as a small accessory, however it is NOT to be the main focus of your layout.

You can use as little or a lot of each colour, but every colour or shade of that colour in the picture MUST be used. You can use varied shades of the colours - it depends on the inspiration that you get from the picture.


Create a layout following the above criteria

 After you have created a LO for the challenge please upload it to your blog, online gallery or Facebook page -  make sure you mention us and link back to our blog challenge.  Then add your challenge link to us using the correct Mister Linky on the right hand side of our BLOG.

Once you have done that just pop over to the SO FaceBook page and let us know you have entered our challenge - you can then link back to your own blog or FB page as well so we can all go and check out your creation.

Out of courtesy, please link your challenge entries back to the Scrapping Outback BLOG challenge or be sure to give credit to the Scrapping Outback challenge and if there is a sketch to follow please give credit to the sketch artist as well.

Please use your creation for our challenge only - it is not to be used in other challenges.

If you are winner be sure to grab your Challenge Winners Blinkie to add to your blog.

Scrapping Outback January Challenge 2015

January 2015 "White with a Twist" challenge....

Welcome to the NEW YEAR :) We hope that you have all had a great Christmas and are looking forward to what the 
New Year will bring!!!!
What better way to start the year than with this scrumptious looking cocktail for our "White with a Twist" January Challenge.
 What a gorgeous, refreshing 
colour combination.
So welcome to our January colour inspiration Challenge everyone!
This month we want you to use White combined with the colours in this yummy looking cocktail.

 So to get you inspired to create we have some wonderful examples from our very talented Design Team girls....

Next stunning layout we have to share with you is from Karen McLaughlin - Karen has also used White cardstock as her base and added splashes of colour with chipboard, flowers and mists.
Karen's TIP: Remember to cover your white cardstock with gesso before applying other mediums so that the colour can be blended and manipulated more and doesn't just sink into the cardstock.
