Happy August everybody! The Summer holidays are in full swing and I am enjoying some weeks off! But I haven’t forgotten the Happy Scrappy Friends. This month it is a colour challenge with a very unusual colour combination: Purple, Green and Blue.
As I normally don’t have anything purple in my photos, I chose one with the two other colours and added purple to the layout.
The title is partly hand painted and alpha stickers – again with some purple watercolours (and some green). I also found some purple chipboard, enamel dots and twine – never used it before! Sort of glad I kept it in my stash for so long!
The pieces of ribbon are tucked underneath the layers and I also used a flame to stop them from coming apart at the ends. After I wrote down my journaling, I used the usual ink splatters to finish it off.
Do you also need to overcome your fear of purple? Then try our challenge!
Thank you so much for stopping by! You should have come from Cathleen, otherwise you can start here. If you would like to take part and share your creation, please post a comment at Happy Scrappy Friends with a link to your project. Your next stop is with Jana.

Happy July everybody! It is time for another Happy Scrappy Friends challenge. It is relatively easy this month – we challenge you to use your Washi tape, wood veneer and stamps. Ready, set, GO!
I used two of the photos I took back in March when the beach in Bournemouth turned more into a construction site than a normal beach. But as they were re-sanding the beach, it was totally OK of course!
I didn’t get over the top with my supplies, but I used all of the above: The Washi tape as a border (don’t you just love the Chevron style tape?) and two (because I couldn’t find a third one) wooden anchors to compliment the stamped anchors. I must say, I used a rather old stamp set by October Afternoon from their collection Seaside – it really needed to be used!
For the three focal points I stamped the anchor on a light blue, punched it out and glued it on a dark blue pinking circle. And as always, to finish it off, some sprinkles of dark blue and turquoise.
Does this month’s challenge sound like a good idea to you? Give it a go then!
