UK Scrappers Weekly Challenge - Make it Different!

Good morning folks; welcome to Monday and my own UK Scrappers weekly challenge. 

These challenges always consist of three elements and this week, they are to use:
  • a colour scheme that is unusual for you to use
  • delve into those scraps bags and use up some scraps
  • do something "arty"! (whatever that terms means for you)
I have directly scraplifted a layout that I really liked by April Foster called "Smile".  It was published in a "Create - Stamping" edition of Scrapbook Trends sometime in 2010 and I always admired it. 

I did lots of spraying with cosmic shimmer mists, and every piece of patterned paper has been used from my scraps bags.  The largest piece (behind the photo) is Cosmo Cricket "Tea for Two" range, called Tea Towel. 
I painted around the edge of each semi-circle with Cosmic Shimmers used like paint and added some stitching too - as I said - an exact scrap-lift of April Foster's.  Very different from what seems to be my style these days, but I like the end result - and I love to try new things - when I get the time! 
Lots of people have helped me create sample layouts over at UKS:
Jess, aka Jessbaby:
Ali, aka Alits:
Karen, aka Badgerleader:
Sarah, aka Scrappy-Sarah:
Jo, aka Wonky:
Thanks so much to them for their time and friendship in helping me out.  I will add blog links when I can later.  Why don't you have a go and join in with the challenge?
