This month the theme for the Road Trip hosted by Stuff to Scrap is APRIL SHOWERS BRING MAY FLOWERS.
I have designed some pieces of word art and what I am calling "Pretties" which are in a sense fancy paint splatters with some bling scatters incorporated with them. The best way to use them is to not add any shadows - just place them on your layout as they are.
For this month's road trip over at Stuff to Scrap it is a fun theme and a nice colour palette. Because I have been taking part in the Designer Darling Contest, I decided to create alphas and the kit includes three little monsters. So you will be able to use those with the other kits you download along your road trip which I hope you enjoy.

I have now made it to the second last round in the contest. For this round we need to create a mini kit using no purchased Commercial use items which includes actions and styles as well as paper overlays, elements etc. We were given one colour - a blue that we are asked to include in our palette. My mind went blank and I could not think of a theme or colour palette to use and then remembered admiring a layout in a gallery recently that was created in monochromatic colours. So this inspired me to create my mini kit - Blue N Blue. I enjoyed using textures for my papers that were from photographs or scannings of things around my home. I also enjoyed drawing some doodles in my Illustrator Software which I must learn how to use properly. My doodled circles were inspired by a paper scrapbook page I once created. The circles give the look of flowers when you place leaves with them.
Here is the preview to my kit:
Presently the only way to download my kit if you like it, is to join up at Stuff to Scrap and find the link in the forum HERE where the Designer Darling Contest is being held. I can highly recommend joining this forum as it is a great place for making new friendships and joining in on the challenges. Their Store is full of high quality products as they keep a high standard for all their designers.
May your little stay in my part of the world be an enjoyable one. **********************************************

Arts and crafts have always been a love for me. I have been addicted to rubber stamping for making greeting cards since 1992, now I am also addicted to Scrapbooking which happened in September 2006. Then in February 2008 I discovered digital scrapbooking and hardly ever do any paper scrapbooking now.
I also enjoy altered art and if I had the time I would like to paint.
I like to use my art to share my love of the Lord Jesus when I am able to.
