Lots of creating to share

Scrap the Girls is live today with a brand new monthly challenge.

Come play along for some awesome prizes.

Make sure you check the blog often because there is lots of inspiration for scrapping for the girls including guest designers through the month also.

It's a sketch challenge again this month and here's the board.

Here's my take on the sketch
Selfie and Pout

Circle Journals
I'm having such a good time creating in this circle journal round with Scrapping Clearly 
This is another of last months entries.

 This months pages
This theme was a challenge, 'Self Portrait', in the end it's my favourite so far.

 Theme 'What Makes me Happy'

This one was a technique based journal and we had to do a tag with the instructions for a technique. I tried to think outside the box and did an oldie but what I think is a goodie for journal pages.
To achieve a similar look the idea is to cover the pages in a collage to match the theme. I chose 'woman' as my theme so I found as many images, words & stamps and glued and stamped them to the journal page. I then cut some shapes in card and chippy and glued them down also.
I stamped the large face stamp on some tissue and cut it out. Glue it down, making sure all the image had glue on it. Covered the remaining pages in glue and stuck tissue paper from an old pattern over the glue cutting away excess tissue.
I highlighted the cut out pieces under the tissue with metallic rub on's and stuck some mica flakes here and there. I added a chippy circle to Emphasise the eye and letter stickers for the quote.

Can you tell I love the quotes for the 'She' book ;)

Tag Swap
I've also joined a monthly tag swap at Scrapping Clearly were you create one tag a month to swap with another participant. 
To make it a little easier they give you a mood board for inspiration.
