Welcome to Week 1 of 'The Block' Super Challenge at Scrapbooking Top 50 Australia.
I was inspired by the colours on the mood board and wanted to do a minimal effect with at least 50% white space. Hope you like my take on the Week 1 Bedroom.
'Don't forget to smile' is about my youngest daughter's celebratory first photo without braces on her teeth.

Items I used included:
- Imaginarium Design Chipboard - Loolabelles hearts,
- 12" x 12" white card stock
- DecoArt Crackle Paint- white
- Semco Acrylic paints; Blue, red oxide, yellow oxide, sienna
- Kaisercraft 6 1/2"x 6 1/2" paper pad collection 'Miss Empire'
- Black cotton
- Black gesso
- Matte Gel Medium -'Ranger'
- Black cardstock for photo backing
- Hessian and corrugated cardboard
- Flowers- 'Little Birdie'
- Glossy Accents -'Ranger'
- Using a spatula I smeared the crackle paint over the centre of the page
- When dry I lightly sprayed the crackle with water
- Using some watered down Yellow oxide acrylic paint and a thick brush I added colour to the crackle area using more spray when I needed it to move and act more like a watercolour paint.
- I tore a single piece of Kaisercraft paper pad into a long strip and glued it over the painted crackle.
- Mixing black gesso and matte gel medium into a small nosed squeezy bottle with a little water, I used it to make random swishy lines across the long strip and left it to dry.
- I made a stack of hessian, cardboard and more Kaisercraft paper
- I painted the Imaginarium Design Chipboard heart pieces with blue and the centre heart red. I used Glossy accents to cover the pieces to give them a 3D glossy effect.
- Finally I added splats of watered down - yellow oxide and sienna and black gesso before adding my black cotton, photo and paper stack, the heart pieces and the flowers.
Can't wait to share next weeks Week 2 mood board and room. Catch you then and hope I've inspired you to explore some new techniques and ideas and join us at 'The Block' Super Challenge over the next 6 weeks.
