Scrap Africa Challenge 43: One Little Word for 2015

For our One Little Word challenge at Scrap Africa I was inspired by a recent tutorial by Gabrielle Pollacco to create something a little bit out of my comfort zone. I love mixed media and I love working on canvas and I have been wanting to do lots more of it. I think this was a good kick start to my creative year. I didn't do quite as much to my canvas as Gabrielle did - just used the general idea as inspiration.


I chose “Fearless” as my word for 2015. Last year my word was “Believe” - believe in myself that I can do whatever I put my heart and mind to and believe in God that He will equip me and bring me through any task He sets before me.
This year I have decided to JUST DO. No over thinking, no worrying about what other people are going to think, no wondering if I'm up to it or not - just let go and make it happen - Fearlessly.


I used a branch chippie by Creative Embellishments - love their products!


And one of Ingvild Bolme's new Stamp 'n Add designs.


My first choice for OLW for this year was “Challenge.” I work well under pressure and deadlines are a great inspiration as they force me to use my time productively. I have found that I can challenge myself to do more and be more creative. That is my goal for this year. So far I'm off to a great start, having started my decor project with Annie Sloan chalk paints. My house is currently in a state of disorder that I am too ashamed to let anybody see but it's my mess and I know how awesome it's going to look when it is done. I have furniture in different stages of completion standing and lying around and I am constantly covered in paint and wax. What a great holiday I'm having. Ha! I will post pictures next week when most of it will be done.

If you read this post, let me know what your One Little Word for 2015 is.

Scrap Africa Sketch #42: Cheese!

We have a sketch challenge up at Scrap Africa and it is another amazing one!

My mom dug out these photos of us at a photo booth in Cape Town when I was about 8 or 9. I don't even remember having these photos taken. What a special treasure.



I used the Happy Snaps collection from Kaisercraft. My background is misted with Enmarc Dazzles.
