Online Class Update...


Welcome to our August "White with a Twist" Challenge....


So the challenge is follow this photo prompt:

Create a layout inspired by ALL the colours in this photo and you MUST use at least one piece of chipboard. (as Scrapping Outback is known for all its chipboard).

You must use WHITE combined with the colours above. You can use printed paper as long as these colours are the main focus of the paper. There can be other colours on the printed paper, but not too much to take away from the colours in the inspiration picture.

You can use anything to create these colours like mists, inks or paints. 

You can use a small amount of black/brown just for a little stamping, inking, journaling or just as a small accessory, however it is NOT to be the main focus of your layout.

You can use as little or a lot of each colour, but every colour or shade of that colour in the picture MUST be used. You can use varied shades of the colours - it depends on the inspiration that you get from the picture.

Create a layout following the above criteria

 After you have created a LO for the challenge please upload it to your blog, online gallery or Facebook page -  make sure you mention us and link back to our blog challenge.  Then add your challenge link to us using the correct Mister Linky on the right hand side of our BLOG.

Once you have done that just pop over to the SO FaceBook page and let us know you have entered our challenge - you can then link back to your own blog or FB page as well so we can all go and check out your creation.

Out of courtesy, please link your challenge entries back to the Scrapping Outback BLOG challenge or be sure to give credit to the Scrapping Outback challenge and if there is a sketch to follow please give credit to the sketch artist as well.

 We have another very fun tutorial by Sandrine for you to get inspired this month!

"From chipboard to stamp"


  This is what you will need:

- Craft foam (mine is very cheap and about 2mm thick)

- Acrylic Paints

- Chipboard - fun shapes -

- Heavy object to press chipboard into foam

- Heat Gun


1.Choose a piece of chipboard you would like 

to transform into a stamp, I am using WOW Honeycomb, it will make a gorgeous background stamp!

  2.Take a piece of foam a little bigger than your chipboard piece 

3. Heat foam up with heat gun - texture will change slightly and it will curl on the edge when ready -

4.Quickly grab your chipboard and press hard into the foam
I used a heavy object to help me press really hard.
The thicker the chipboard the better!

 Cut stamp closer to edge and stamp away! 
You can use ink or paint
Here is what my finished stamp looks like! I actually made a few! You could use words, letters or phrases too, don't forget to press them the wrong way so they stamp the word the right way!

I used that process to create my layout this month, here is a close up of my background:


That's it! So easy!

Thank you so much for visiting and we are looking forward to seeing your creations during this month!

Happy Scrapping
