Little Moments – and Pocket page scrapping – Melinda Sweetman

Yikes!! November already!! My how this year is flying past!


Melinda here with you today sharing some pages from Hunter’s 2015 album, February to be exact!
I had so much fun with all the chippy pieces and paint!



I started with painting all of my chippy with Dusty In Colour Soot and then applied a coat of Clear Gloss Varnish and popped aside to dry while I got on with my background.

I have used almost entirely Australian manufactured and designed products on this layout as those papers and embellishments are from Cocoa Vanilla’s Made of Awesome range. I started with a cut file which I cut using my silhoutte and then mixed up a concoction of 4 Dusty In Colour paints to to match perfectly with the blue of that paper frame in the layers. The colours I used are Navajo White, Oceania, Faded Denim and Denim. I just plopped some colour onto a palette and mixed away until I got just the right colour! So much fun!

I then added some of the paint to some plastic packaging and some water and basically stamped/smooshed the packaging until I got the effect I was after. I love how this turned out! After that was dry I backed all the arrows that I had cut with some scraps of paper from the same range of papers.

I have used Chevrons Small – both the inside cut and the “left over” bits. And the title is from Mini Captions #6.

Here is one part of the “left overs” from Chevrons Small

And another.

I have used 3 page pebbles here too which I did paint VERY lightly so you can still see the etched details.

I have used one of the pebbles from this pack here. 

This pack here.

And this pack here. I think this is one of my all time fave’s too – I have been hoarding that too!!

While I was putting this layout together I discovered just how awesome the clear gloss varnish is too!! Obviously it leaves a beautiful layer of clear gloss but while it was out and I was playing it was the 1st glue I grabbed a few times and it really is awesome for that too!! When it sticks it’s stuck but you have a little moving time!!

Onto the facing page which is, of course, a PL style page 🙂

Again, all my chippy has been treated the same way and papers and stickers are from the same range.

Here is the title card that I had so much fun putting together – am loving getting inky and making a mess on my craft mat!!

Some more of the Chevrons Small and also the Typewriter ABC font.

And some close ups of all the titles on the photographs!

Word Pack #25

And that is it for me for today!! I hope you have enjoyed seeing my pages for this month and see you next month!!
