Unstampabelles #48 Heros and Heroines

For the month of JUNE at Unstampabelles the theme is "Who is Your Hero/Heroine? "  We all have someone we look up to and admire. Create a mixed media item to celebrate your hero! (It is also the Queen's birthday and Ramadan month, if this helps for some). Your hero may be your spouse or another family member, a national or international figure or indeed a fictional person. 
The twist is to journal about it in your blog.

Mr Albert Einstein has always been a hero to me.  I am a bit of a maths geek but no-where near Alberts level of GENIUS, to have such a powerful driving desire and purpose is totally amazing.

I love his quote 
"Out of clutter, find simplicity" 
and I've used that a as a basis for my altered paint brush.

Blunder Woman Strikes Again

I'm really enjoying the UKS Twisted Sisters CJ.  Lots of fun topics coming up.  The latest one is Lifes Lessons, and I just couldn't resist this digital image of Blunder Woman from Doctor Digi House of Stamps , she is such a fun old dear!!

Another great background from Stan to work with, I have added in some distressed clock faces and bits of grey......

This is the background for Kitty to work on next time

Unstampabelles #47 - Family History part II

My second project for the Unstampabelles May challenge (Family History and Make It Vintage") is a layout about me and my big sister.  IIt wasn't until I was looking through an old photo album that I realised my Mum always tried to have us in matching outfits.   These capes and ribbon buckled shoes reminded me of Mary Quant.  My Mum can't remember the occasion but we look so sweet and smart, we were a right pair of trouble makers though!!
We are standing in our Grandparents drive.  Mrs Proudly, the lady who made those gorgeous capes lives in the house behind us in the photo.  Ahhh Happy Memories....

Check out the Unstampabelles blog for more details about the challenge and be inspired by the other entries, we'd love to see your work.

Unstampabelles #47 - Family History part I

My first project for the Unstampabelles May challenge is a scrapbook layout of my gorgeous Mum at 6 years old, working hard at school.  

The theme this month is FAMILY TREE with the twist to 'Make It Vintage .  Check out the blog for more details about the challenge and other inspiring entries.

I've used some vintage style papers from my scrapbooking stash and some old flowers.  I didn't have enough brads to match so I used Alcohol Inks to co-ordinate them.  I punched out a couple of butterflies from some scraps of paper and journaled about the photo.  I knew exactly what I wanted to do and for a change the LO came together really quickly.
