This is the start of an inspiration patch, where I hope that fellow scrappers and creators will come and find some inspiration, or even leave some inspiration for me.

The Last Rose of Summer - Challenge no.18 - Scrap Africa

Hi Everyone

I hope you are having a super Saturday! I have been quite productive and have lots of projects to share with you, but will try to not cram them all into one post! ;-))

There is a new challenge at Scrap Africa and it's all about this.

Use texture paint or modelling paste, either with a mask or stencil or free hand and any other wet medium like paint or mists etc.

So here is the page that I created, with some inspiration from (if I can remember correctly) Adrienne Ford and Kelly Foster, both having used the foam leftovers on their pages.

I used a Prima stencil with gesso for the background and then coloured with water colour paints, as well as Enmarc Dazzles Victorian Rose. The chipboard is also Enmarc and the flower Kaisercraft.

The papers used are Basic Grey Sweet Threads and I am pleased to stay that I am really trying to make a dent in my stash! ;-) The alpha's are from the same collection too.

We hope that you will come and have a look at the super inspiration and also hopefully play along here.

Thanks for stopping by!
I hope you have a super day!
