Relax and Recharge Repeat

 Good morning how are you? I am here to share with you another layout for my 365 project, and it seems fitting that I am sharing photos of myself and my adventures as its my Birthday, I have started to feel more comfortable about taking pictures, maybe its a thing that happens as you circle the sun for another year.

Magical Moments For Bee Arty

Good morning how are you this fine Sunday.  Hope you have been having some creative time. 

Now onto my final share for the month for Bee Arty. If you remember this month I was showing how I break down the monthly challenge, Moodboard and the sketch. 

Now its about blending the two together......

You can follow along with how I created this layout with a process video.

To start off, ink the background with some Tim Holtz Oxides through the Laced Stencil.

Cut a diamond shape out and repeat the above step making a pattern. 

Stamp with the Script stamp from Bokeh, with a grey ink.

With a black archival ink stamp with Fearless Stamp set all over the inked area.

Add a selection of washi tapes over the inked and stamped background. 

Till you get something like below....

Now its about following the sketch to complete the layout.

I hope this inspires you to play with our monthly challenges, you still have time to join us for this months challenge, just follow the link below.

Always Find......

Morning how are you? Still plodding along with the 365 challenge this one was a nice and relaxing one as I get to play with sticking the rhinestones which I do find relaxing. 

Nothing wrong with a little bling......

Wild at Heart with Dusty Attic

 Good morning how are you? Nearing the end of another month, and as promised at the start of the month, I have a process video showing how I start a basic interactive layout. 

I love interactive layout as they allow you to add journaling (which I add after so my family has some hidden things out of the public eye), and the advantage is you get the best off both worlds with a nice single photo layout while having plenty of other photos.


To Follow along watch the video below:

My process is a little backwards sometimes, I tend to create spaces for photos before I worry about adding the photos. This allows me to get more creative with the art of it......

Once again this layout style is perfect for using the left over bits and pieces like the Dusty Attic Toadstools.

Wild At Heart

Toadstools #1

Till next time have a creative day.

All you need to do is add your take of the challenge into the comments section on the Dusty FANattics Facebook page HERE for your chance to win one of two amazing $50 Credits to choose any. 

Good Luck and have fun creating.
