K + challenge -July 2015. The Spud Men:

Good scrappy day to y'all! This month at KRAFT PLUS we have a PAINT challenge:
Now, you do NOT have to make it a whole yellow painted page.
But you DO have to use yellow PAINT somewhere on your page.
Maybe just on the alphas, or some painted flowers.
You can take ANY elements from the picture and use them for inspiration, too:)
For lots of different ideas, head over to our K+ blog HERE.
Me, I decided to interpret the page 'literally', if you will:
 I'm ALWAYS trying to use up odd alphas.
Went to town on the background creating a MESS of them, along with a pile of different stamped arrows & chevron stamps in black!
 And to keep 'true' to the inspiration photo, I've actually layered my journaling over top, with a mix of alphas as well!
A Charm's Creations chevron was bold enough to add into the mix & not get 'lost'!!!
The kraft card has been brushed with gesso, covered in Dusty Attic 'sunshine' paint
Then I sprinkled a bit of embossing powder over before it completely dried to give a bit of texture:
We have some FABULOUS prizes this month, for Australian entries - both  random and DT chosen ones.
for our international players, the chance to win a GUEST DESIGN position!
I'm sure this challenge will give you plenty of scope to do something with yellow paint!
Have fun playing & as always, happy scrapping!
Lizzy ♥♥♥
PS: for me, this was all about the hand of experience and youth working together.
This closie says it all:


  1. WOOOOW!!!!!! I am STUNNED!!! This is a super Awesome LO Lizzy!!! All from the Craft paper, the yammy yellow to those adoreble photos... LOOOVE IT !!! Thanks, NOW I will sleep well!!! Hugs Anna :)

  2. Who knew yellow could be so stunning? The artful way you've combined the letters is really neat. I hate trying to use up those odds and ends!

  3. wow Lizzy, you have done an awesome job with these colors .... amazing creating .. love x

  4. Ohhhhhhhhhhh this is gorgeous! I loveeeeeeee the colors (THAT YELLOW! WOW!) and loving the sweet photos!!!!!!!!!

  5. Awesome happy, happy painterly page!!!

  6. Hello Lizzy! Thanks for popping over to my blog. Your blog is reminding me that I have to get back into scrapbooking! The burst of yellow on this is fantastic - such a gorgeous LO. So wish I could work mixed media but I never seem to be able to pull it off lol!

  7. Love the look of all the alpha stickers you have used! AWESOME layout!

  8. The photos are wonderful and I love the sunny yellow to go with the potatoes. It's a very moving page

  9. Adorable. Little boys just love grubbing in the garden with their Grandfathers. They learn so much by observing and getting their hands into the soil. Love the take on the colours and the juxtaposition of old hand and new :D

  10. I love the yellow and the mixed alphas. This is a super page, Lizzy with wonderful photos.


    Are there modes of baptism or is there just baptism? Saying there are modes of baptism is like saying there are modes of humans. There are not methods of humans nor are there methods of baptism. There are humans and there is baptism.

    Water baptism is literally and figuratively a burial. You cannot be buried under a sprinkle nor under pouring.

    Roman 6:4 Therefore we have been buried with Him through baptism into death, so that as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we too might walk in newness of life.(NASB)

    Colossians 2:12 having been buried with Him in baptism, in which you are also raised up with Him through faith in the working of God, who raised Him from the dead.(NASB)

    Romans 6:4 We were, therefore, buried with him by immersion into death; that as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, thus we also should walk in the newness of life.(The Better Version of The New Testament by Chester Estes)

    I have yet to find a translation of the Bible that translates; Romans 6:4 ....."we were buried with Him by sprinkling or pouring into death....

    Colossians 2:12 Having been buried with him by immersion, by which also you were raised up with him, through the belief of the strong working of God, who raised him from the dead.(The Better Version of The New Testament by Chester Estes)

    There are no translations of the Bible that renders; Colossians 2:12 Having been buried with him by sprinkling or pouring.....


    John 3:23 And John also was immersing in Enon, near Salim, because there were many waters there; and the people came , and were immersed. (The Better Version of The New Testament by Chester Estes)

    John the Baptist did not need many waters to sprinkle or pour water on men.

    BAPTISM is not divided into modes. BAPTISM is not various methods. BAPTISM IS JUST BAPTISM!
