Vintage with Scrap Africa!

Good morning all, 

A new start of the week and at Scrap Africa we bring you a new challenge!

Vintage, create a card, layout or OTP project. 

I made a vintage jewelry box on order for one of my customers and i thought it would be 
perfect for this challenge.

I used paper from Graphic 45, which has the vintage flair. 
The color scheme was peachy orange, and cream white. 

I also decorated the inside of the box, it was empty but i added the mirror and flower cluster at the bottom. 

Well you all know the drill, you have two weeks to add your project to the Scrap Africa Blog
Have a look at the site to get your inspiration, lots of talented ladies on this team from all countries all over the world. 

Thank you for stopping by and have a great week!

Good morning all, 

It's time for a new challenge at Frosted designs.

The challenge is to add Grafitti to your project by adding Paint, Doodling and/or handwritting!

This is my take on the challenge:

A real boy layout and i added several different mediums in order to create my Grafitti. 

Have a look at the FD site for some inspiration. You know the drill. 

Thank you for passing by and have a great weekend.

Mixed media canvas with 7 dots

Good morning all, 

Channa here, and today i am sharing a mixed media canvas for you. 
I was ready to play around and get messy and see below how it turned out:

I used one sheet of paper of the 7 dots, Cold country collection pack. Together with some embellishments, such as flowers, chipboards & stamps from my own stash i created this canvas. 
Normally i always start a project with an idea in my mind but this one was completely free style. 

Thats the nice part of mixed media, just use whatever you can find on your desk and start playing around. 
I made several layers starting from paint, paper, gesso, modeling paste, sprays etc...

Thank you for passing by and have a great day!

Sailing the 7 seas....................

Good evening all, 

I had great joy and lots of memories, making this page for Scrap africa.
The challenge for the next two weeks is:

Challenge: Tell us about your travel adventures...perhaps your favourite location, or the most memorable trip...anything related to travel. Please include journalling, even if hidden and tell us where it is.

I decided to study Tourism and Hospitality knowing that i would have the opportunity to travel. 
Which indeed happened! When i was 24 years old i decided to work at sea on a Cruise vessel. I had to get used to it or as they say "i had to get my sea legs" but i did and stayed for about 6 years. 
One of my favourite ships was the Mercury as too many memories are left on that particular ship. 
Lovely destinations, hard work, lots of complaining ( from me and guests) and i met my husband on this ship. It has brought me so much joy!  At the moment the ship is sailing for a German company and changed her name to Mein ship 2. But for me she will always be the Mercury. 

This is my layout:

Normally i am dont add any journaling but on this page i did ( and had to, it is part of the challenge) 
but i believe it is very well hidden:

I attached 2 tags to the flowers clusters and it can be pulled out to read the journaling. 

All word chipboards are from Scrapmatts . 

Although i have travelled a lot in my life, this is my best travelling story. I worked and travelled at the same time and found love on my "loveboat" what more could a girl ask for. It really was an experience of a lifetime, although it was hard work it was all well worth it and i would not trade those years with anything. 

thank you all for passing by twice today!
have a good weekend.
