3 Challenges!!

It has taken me a while and I am still a bit tentative but I am starting to use Texture Paste and paint/mists.  I must thank Charm for her 123 Challenge this month for getting me started.  The challenge is:
Texture, Green & the word Watch, here is my layout:

I have used texture paste mixed with green paint and aqua mist to create a wave effect.  The word WATCH is in my journalling.

The next layout is for White with 1.  This months challenge was:
White, Maps & Travel Embelishments. 

I had to put my thinking cap on for this one.  I didn't have any pp or embellishment with a map, so what next?  I was looking through the photos from our trip to NZ in January and found this photo with a map - bingo.  Then I didn't have any travel embellies, so I had to make them from the only (not very inspiring) stamp set I had.  I am quite pleased with what I came up with - a luggage tag, ticket, compass, map & some sayings.  And I have used texture paste and paint again!!!

My third layout is for Stuck! Sketches.  It is their 5th birthday this month.  This is their1st bonus sketch:

and here is my layout.

I really really like this layout of Tim & Mikala taken at the Yr 12 Induction in September last year and to think Yr 12 is nearly over.  She finishes her trial this afternoon and will be totally finished early November - it is very scary. Have used lots of beautiful flowers from D-lish Scraps.

Next on the list will be the August 1st sketch featuring the gorgeous Kate McCulloch.  I want to thank Kate for her endless facebook encouragement and inspiration - especially with the texture paints and paints.

TFL and I love receiving your beautiful comments.
