Online Class Update...


Welcome to our July "White with a Twist" Challenge....


So the challenge is: 

Create a layout inspired by ALL the colours in this photo and you MUST use at least one piece of chipboard. (as Scrapping Outback is known for all its chipboard).

You must use WHITE combined with the colours above. You can use printed paper as long as these colours are the main focus of the paper. There can be other colours on the printed paper, but not too much to take away from the colours in the inspiration picture.

You can use anything to create these colours like mists, inks or paints. 

You can use a small amount of black/brown just for a little stamping, inking, journaling or just as a small accessory, however it is NOT to be the main focus of your layout.

You can use as little or a lot of each colour, but every colour or shade of that colour in the picture MUST be used. You can use varied shades of the colours - it depends on the inspiration that you get from the picture.

Create a layout following the above criteria

 After you have created a LO for the challenge please upload it to your blog, online gallery or Facebook page -  make sure you mention us and link back to our blog challenge.  Then add your challenge link to us using the correct Mister Linky on the right hand side of our BLOG.

Once you have done that just pop over to the SO FaceBook page and let us know you have entered our challenge - you can then link back to your own blog or FB page as well so we can all go and check out your creation.

Out of courtesy, please link your challenge entries back to the Scrapping Outback BLOG challenge or be sure to give credit to the Scrapping Outback challenge and if there is a sketch to follow please give credit to the sketch artist as well.

Please use your creation for our challenge only - if you choose to use it for other challenges as well, you will not be eligible  for the Scrapping Outback prize...

If you are winner be sure to grab your Challenge Winners Blinkie to add to your blog.

Scroll that the bottom of this post for a fun tutorial by Sandrine
 So to get you inspired to create we have some wonderful samples from our
Design Team girls....

Our first Design team sample is by the very talented Karen McLaughlin...

Karen used these SO Products:

- Dusty Attic Word Pack #4
 - WOW Circle Ring Frame 
- DA Mini Hinges
 TIP: If you adhere a photo using 3D foam tape, you can continue to tuck elements underneath the edges once it is fixed in place on the layout.

  Next is Sandrine with this fun layout:

Sandrine used the following SO products:
 - Coco Vanilla - Sugar and Spice - 
- Websters Pages - Beautiful Chic -
- Prima Marketing - Cigar Box Secret Flower -
- WOW Mini Scroll Set #3
- 2 Crafty - Bubble Clumps -
- Twiddleybitz - Basic Arrows -

Tip: Use your chipboard as a mask in your background, it gets painted while masking you can then glue it down somewhere else 
to repeat the design!

This month we are giving you the opportunity to double your points if you show/tell us how creative you have been with your chipboard, we want to see some unsual/creative ways to use it!

 We have a very fun tutorial by Sandrine for you to get inspired to think outside the box!  Here it is:

  This is what you will need:

- Gelli Plate

- Acrylic Paints

- Brayer

- Deli Paper + Cardstock

- Chipboard - fun shapes -

- Acrylic Block

Place Gelli Plate on acrylic block

 (I am using a small 3''X5'' plate as a stamp on my background repeating the prints to create fun effect on a 12x12 cardstock piece)

1.Cover gelli plate with both colours using brayer, place chipboard on wet paint:


2.Place deli paper over and press to remove some paint:


3.Reveal first print:

4.Remove the chipboard pieces, they have been painted in the process:

 This is what your plate looks like now, it is ready for stamping on another sheet:

5.Using plate as a stamp press onto clean sheet of deli paper, I got 3 groovy prints out of this one:

I used that process to create my layout this month, here is a close up of my background:

I toned my background down with some Gesso, just enough so you can still see all the chipboard outlines underneath!

I used lots of different chipboard pieces too, including the scrolls that I actually used around my photo!


Thank you so much for visiting and we are looking forward to seeing your creations during this month!

Happy Scrapping
