Treasure - PictureThis!

This month over at PicureThis we have a fun challenge of Tic Tac Toe.
You can choose any of the products, as long as they run in a row, be it up, down or horizontal.
I chose a horizontal line using enamel dots, layers and red.

I dedicated this months challenge to my Nan who left us 2 months ago.
And I really wanted to use this photo of her at the age of 18.
I love how young she is and the whole feel of the photo.

Nan quite liked the colour red so it was perfect to use the line with this colour in it.

And I had to throw plenty of 'roses' in to this layout as Nans name was Rose.
These flowers worked perfectly with the photo and colour.

I'm really happy with how this layout turned out, and I feel it has honoured Nana too.
I hope you get to have a play with this challenge, I look forward to seeing what products you choose for it.
Till next time, Em. Xx

Always and forever - PictureThis!

Happy 2017 everyone!! 
Wow where did 2016 go?? 
This year we are going to try new and fun things over at Picture This! 
Starting with this months new challenge of using texture.
Texture can mean so many things, and I just love playing with it. 
I love gesso and texture paste and paint flicks, but then I love to add chipboard and paper layers also.
So many things you can add to a layout to add texture.

Stamping is a big element that I love to add on top of the texture paste and gesso.
It adds a little interest also.

We would all love for you to join in with this challenge, you don't need to use a lot to add texture, try a small thing to start, I'm sure once you start you will be hooked.
Thanks for taking time to check out my blog, and I'll be making sure I check out your blog very soon.
Till next month, Em. Xx

Happiness-PictureThis! - Emma Zappone

Well hello there, 
I'm here today to share my Design Team layout for PictureThis Challenges for the month of December! 
December really???? 
This month we have very cool inspiration in the form of shapes. 
That's right, just create a layout (or journal page, card, OTP, ect) with the shape you desire. Be it circles, squares, triangles, what ever shape takes your fancy! 
I was inspired by the triangle shape.......

I didn't use to many but they are certainly a big feature. 
I got to play a little with some new mixed media products too including Colour Blast Mica powders. Too cool!

I covered some chipboard triangles with paper, and some I painted, just to mix it up a little. 😝

I used a very cool chipboard title from 2crafty and painted it to match. 

And like most of my layouts I finished it off with some twine and a flair with some flicks of paint for good measure. 
I really hope you can have a play with our challenge this month. I look forward to seeing your creations. 
Till next time, Em. Xx

Beautiful- sharing the colour

Hi everyone!! 
I'm very happy to share my first DT layout as part of Rainbow Splendour with you all today. 
I just love the cool kits Chloe puts together. So full of colour and perfect for any layout. 
This layout is using the August kit tropical twist. 

For those of you that don't know me, I have 2 amazing boys, so scrapping girly is a treat but also limiting because I don't have many girls around me 😉.  Thank goodness my cousin does! Lol!! 
They are gorgeous kids and give me lots of inspiration. 

In Chloe's kits I love the veneer flowers and the cool cut outs!! They certainly help tell a story. The embellies in the kits really complete a page. 

I can't wait to see the other DT girls pages and hope we can inspire you to join in 'sharing the colour'. 
 Till next month thanks for visiting and I'll see you all soon. 
Em. Xx

A moment captured

Hi there, 
It's the start of the month!! 
This year is seriously moving along!! 
So over at PictureThis we have a brand new challenge! Want to know what it is??? 
It has a few elements to it...use layers, one photo and fussy cutting! 

My layout consists of many fussy cuts including the arrows, camera and clouds. 

Layering is something I often do, but fussy cutting was a little trickier. But I really quite liked finding elements to cut out. 

I really hope you all have a go at this fun challenge. More prizes up for grabs too. 
I'll be sure to check out all your amazing creations over at PictureThis! 
Till next we meet, Em. Xx


Happy Friyay all,
I'm here to share my last ever D-Lish layout as a design team member. 
It is a bit sad, but it's been a blast also. I've had so much fun, and have grown as a scrap booker along the way too.
So today I share a layout of my cousins girls. Something bright and girly.
With pops of teal and pink. d-lish has so many sorts of flowers and pretty things that a girly layout comes together quite easy.

I also used more from the last kit on this layout, so much in these kits that you can make many layouts from the one kit.

With matching flairs and wood veneer it's very hard not to get creative.

Amanda will release a new kit tomorrow and I'm sure it will be amazing! It always is. 

Thank you to all of you for your kind words, and hope I was able to give a little inspiration in my time as a designer.
Thank you Amanda for this past year also, for such an amazing opportunity.

Welcome to the new designers, I'm sure you will inspire us all.
I look forward to seeing all the upcoming creations, and challenges here at D-lish.
Thanks and goodbye, Em. Xx
