Scrapbook with Chelsea green, step by step

I loved taking the grandchildren to the 'Look out ' in Bracknell last Saturday, thank god it wasn't this Saturday, would have been swimming costumes !!
I thought the new Do-crafts Chelsea Green 12 x 12 ideal for outdoor scrapping.
                                    step by step instructions if you want to have a go

i started with a deep green page  -  then added  a strip of a light green flower paper at the top.
  a ripped   strip from a mid green flower page and added to the bottom.
this is inked with a gold ink pad - i have also inked with gold the brown self adhesive strip from the daisy chains pack.
i also added a strip of light green check paper over the top flowered paper.
Next i made the 'Swings'  using kraft paper  turned down the top and inked with red. punched holes  at the top , added some jewellery chains fixed at the back with the red brads. I first matted the photo's onto green glitter card. and then onto the kraft swings. the chains at the top were attached to the check  strip of paper right through all the layers with small brads. and the  swings stuck down to where i wanted them to be on the page.

 using silicone glue, i put the large strip of green glitter on top of the chains held by brads, the silicone glue raised the strip to the same level as the chains and brads at the back, just to even it up and tidy it all up.
 I coloured in some of the flowers and leaves on the light green flower paper at the top of the page with whispers brush markers in red and green
 Also colouring and cutting some flowers out from the left over paper and decoupaging onto the page.
Finally adding the red letters to say swing , little chelsea green buttons on the decoupaged flowers and some journalling to say about the day in white pen with little white hearts  and some crystals in green and red.


  1. Fabulous layout and gorgeous colours and papers too.
