Hi there! Today I've got a small LO - less than A4
 to share with you, using our current
It's for mounting on a calendar, hence the smaller size,
Quite a FUN challenge scrapping this size!
I kept the detail minimal, because of the page size, keeping with the mood board palette.
Can you see I've popped in just a smidgen of the blues below?? [thanks Mitra P!]
And for the 'magic' part of the title, there is a very subtle shading effect.....
I covered that lovely MAGIC chippy in DUSTY ATTIC GLOSS VARNISH, then
sprinkled lightly with the same glitter that is on the bg.
I really liked the sort of 'dew on the ground' effect of adding some DA GLOSSY CRACKLE VARNISH
to the bg stenciling, too. I wanted to keep my page quite 'earthy'...
And I actually looked carefully at our challenge picture & tried to mimic the overall design
with how I placed my elements.
My photo is the cave; the poppies the curved entrance:)
Hope you get a chance to join in with our DA challenge this month.
A VERY GENEROUS $100 worth of chippy is the prize!!
 Thanks for looking & happy scrapping ~ Lizzy 


  1. I LOVE the fact that your designs always seem to take the photo into consideration and really stem from that. The whole layout just reminds me of some forest floor in a remote location, which I expect was what you were going for. Super effective!

  10. A perfect page; earthy and delicious. It brings back happy memories of mushrooming in our paddocks, with my Mum and siblings. We each had our own little billy and paring knife. When we'd gathered a few kilos, we'd head home to toast our wet shoes by a log fire. Mum cooked the mushys for tea in a white sauce with crispy toast and bacon. Whoops - off down memory lane here! LOVE this page. TFS
