KIDZ ART ROKZ!! :) :) :)

Hi Guys

Your probably wondering WT??? LOL!!

What this post is all about is,..... that apart from being a huuuuge fan of all art created by kids, Im moving house in about 6 weeks, aaaaand Ive got a stash of freebie paper crafting stuff that I have been given over the last 12 months, from various sources, that I would love to giveaway to a couple of aspiring and fun loveing creative kids!!!!!

Sooooo what I thought I would do, if any kids are interested, is run a fun giveaway inviting all creative kids to share their 'stuff' to be in the running.

Ive got 2 packs of goodies. I thought Ied do it in 2 groups; up to 13 years and from 13 to 15 years. It is open to Aussies and Internationals; and to be eligible to go in the draw [which will be random - name drawn out of a hat] you will need to......

Be a kid!!! no parentals allowed!!!!

You MUST have fun creating it!!!!

Send me a photo of your creation via a jpeg attachement [no larger that 300kb] to an email, to me, at loolabelle1961@hotmail.com , and also give me permission to share your pic on my blog [which is linked to facebook]. Include your name, and age, and anything you would like to tell me about what you created.

Well are you interested kids???????

I do hope so, if you or your parentals have any questions just email me!

You have until September 30th 2010 to send them to me :) :) :)

Cheers for now, and Happy Creating Kidz, dont keep me waiting toooooooo long!!

PS I promise to let you know when I receive your email, but it might take me a couple of days tho ;) :) :)

Auuuuussie Fun :)

Hi Guys

Suz has started a fab new blog highlight over at Aussie Scrap Source focusing on Journaling!! the Layout above is one that I did for the breif. I also shared the amazing creativity of one of my all time favest and most inspiring Creatives Julie Fei-Fan Balzer

Keep an eye of the blog for more of the Teams Journaling spotlights, they will rok your sockz!!!!

Guys Ive had a few Questions asked of me in the comments sections of various
posts about the spray inks I use and what I use to create the dimension on my
backgrounds, so I thought I would answer those that I can, sorry to do it this
way but many of you dont have an email address in your blogger profiles that I
can answer too!

The paper that i use on my textured look backgrounds is Tissue paper and Sewing pattern paper, all from the discount store or from an op-shop.

I use a variety of mediums to colour them including;
Paint - Semco, Jo Sonja, Kaisercraft
Spray inks - Crafty Notions, Glimmermist, Ranger Ink, Maya Road Mist, Memories Mist, Luminarte H2O's, Shimmerz
Inks - Stazon, Tim Holtz distress Inks, Versa colour, Colour box, Autum Leaves

I use plain old glue stick [I buy them in bulk from the discount store 3 for a $1.00] to apply the tissue/sewing pattern paper to background card, CS or corrugated card.

Sometimes I leave it dimensional, when I flatten it I run it through an A3 laminator.

The Chipboard that I use on my layouts are from these manufacturers;
2 Crafty
Words or Whatever
RW Laser Cuts
A2Z Scraplets
Kaisercraft - these would be the wooden embellies you see on my LO's
Heidi Swapp
Maya road
Riff Raff Designs
Dusty Attic
Paper Inklings

Umm I think thats all, please if you have any more Questions just ask away :) :) :)

If you have a more specific request include a link to Layout image to help me answer you Q :)

Cheers and thank you so very much for all your wonderful wonderful comments!!!

Much scrappy Mwah!!
