Welcome to the Color Room Blog Hop:)

Welcome to the Color Room's first annual blog hop!!



We are celebratting our 50th palette and we have some amazing things to share with you this week.  See the gorgeous palette HERE.

You have just come from Ronda's awesome blog.....loved her project this week!!  Here is what I created from the "whitewashed" His Room Palette.....

"All mine"


And a few closeups for you:)


I used alot of Gesso, paint and misting to match in with this palette:)


I love collecting bits and pieces from the beach to add to my layouts:)


I hope you like, now onto somethings you may not know about me.........

1. I am from Gladstone, QLD, Australia and I am currently designing for The Color Room, Scrap The Boys, Such Sweet Tierney and My Little Bit of Whimsy.
2. I live with my husband Tim of 8 years (been together 14 yrs though) and our 2 boys, Cooper (4) and Kobi (2).  We are expecting our 3rd child in June this year:)
3. On my desk right now you will find a big mess.......I recieved some Prima goodies today that I ordered and I have been admiring them all!!!  You will also find glue, pics and layouts of the boys, paintbrushes, tape, a bucket of shells and too many other things to list!!!
4. My favourite colours to work with at the moment are aqua blue (of course....always a fave) and yellow and orange and pink and lime green....oh you know me all the colours of the rainbow will do!!!
5. What kind of themes do I often scrap?  I have done a fair few beachy themed layouts lately......I am not the best at journalling I just love to create art and cute themed layouts of my boys:)

6. Where do I scrap?  I have our 4th bedroom dedicated to my scrapbooking.  I am way to embarressed to put a picture on here (it's way too messy atm).  It's a bright lime green room, 2 desks, computer and printer,  a black ikea cabinet, black shelves and hooks and overflowing in jars, papers, paints and embellies:)

7. What is my scrapping process?  I sometimes have trouble picking a picture and thinking up a title.....but once this is done everything else comes easily.  I generally find papers and colours I want to use (usually that match my picture) I then start with painting and misting my background.  I then tear and distress my paper.  I never glue anything down until I have most of my embellishments sitting in their place.  My title and journalling is always the last thing to go on my page......hence the lack of journalling on my pages!

8. My favourite food is anything Potato!

9. My top 3 favourite tools are.....well I don't really use tools, I distress everything by hand, barely own a punch (hopefully soon I will get a new one!!!!) I guess I would say scissors, foam tape and glue...lol!!

10.  I get my inspiration from....definately my boys and their cuteness....hehe but lots of scrappers and different sites, I love blog hopping and definately think The Color Room has the most amazing design team and members that I'm never short of inspiration from them:):)

11.  Describe a technique I used on my project this week.........Texture!  I created lots of texture on my page by placing masking tape down first on my background.  I used gesso and scraped it over the top with a bit of chipboard.  I also misted butterflies and added more paint....(all very randomly).  I curled some paper edges and layered my embellishments on top of each other.  I then traced my finger with gesso over most of the embellishments to give it the white washed and shabby look of the beach:)

Please feel free to try my techniques on your challenge this week at The Color Room. I would love to see what you create with this gorgeous palette:)  Remember to leave a comment answering the question below to be in the running for this weeks special prize.

What colour is my scrap room??

Thank you so much for stopping by, next you are heading to the gorgeous Steph's blog.  I am a huge fan of her beautiful work and can't wait to see what she has created this week:):)

Thanks for participating and helping us celebrate this milestone.
