Autumn Art- The kit and clusters

So here is the rest of my parts to the Pixel Scrapper October Blog Train.
The kit contains 24 Elements and 6  Papers and 6 solids/cardstock
I have also included the color swatch for those who use photoshop.
There are 3 clusters and one border cluster in the cluster pack.
I really enjoyed working with these colors and even though I completely side tracked with the theme and ended up doing more Halloween  than Journal style, I really liked the end results.
I hope you enjoy!


Have a spooktacular day :)

Autumn Art-October Blog Train

Once again I am late, I am late for the correct blog train date.
But I do have some awesome goodies for you all.
The blog trains theme was Autumn Art and it was thrown out there do try Journal type theme.
I kinda got distracted lol. Sorry.
And I really need to practise things more, but that style is something I hope to be able to do in the not to distant future.
The second obstacle I hit was my external hard drive deciding with no warning it was just going to up and die.
I cried I really did. I have years worth of photos, layouts and everything I have ever made as well as all of my purchases on it.
However it will be going to someone who is brilliant at getting things from dead hard drives, so I am hoping I will get most if not all of it back.
And some of the stores reactivated my download links so that I could re-download those as well.
Some just chose to not respond at all, so guess I wont be spending any more of my money in those spots.
I was also all set to take part Digital Scrapbooking Studio's designer challenge.
But well I get another year now to practice and I shall try in the next one.
I did however grab a kit called Temper Tantrum by 2 Curly headed monsters and made a layout to fit the occassion. :)

                                                                  What do you think?
                                              I thought it fitted how I was feeling at that point.
 Now to the blog train stuff.  I started playing around and got distracted from finishing the kit on time.
But I am going to be finishing it as I am really wrapped with how it all came together.
So today I have two Quick pages for you to grab if your interested.
I am almost finished with a set of clusters as well, so I will post those once they are finished.
And of course the kit .  You know what they say, good things come in late packages lol.

Love to hear your feedback on these. And I hope you enjoy them, and they come in handy for scrapping your little gremlins.
Have a wonderful one and I will update again as soon as I have finished the clusters and kit.

By the creek-Designer Challenge

Its been a little quite around these parts lately.  I have been busy doing other things and started several kits but just never managed to finish them.
But I do this for the enjoyment and emotional release creating allows me.
But I am loving the colors and the theme for the next blog train so I will most certainly be hopping aboard it :)

Just curious, have any of you popped into Pixel Scrapper and checked out all the fun things constantly happening there?
One of my favorite things about the site is that I can use any kit I like to enter the challenges,so I am getting pages done, and with the kit I want.
And now they are also running a challenge that uses the kits from the blog train each month, so its super easy to join in and make some other digi scrapping friends.
You also gets DC points for joining in at the site which in turn will allow you to choose from the many kits that are there.
Or you can join for as little as $10 per month to download PU kits.
So its really a win win all the way and you get to have fun as well and of course meet some wonderful people.  I just thought I would put that out there in case some of you downloading didn't know.
Maybe I will get to see some of you around there, I would love to say hi and leave some love on something you created.

Now for the freebie today, I joined in the on the designer challenge posted, and this one was to create your own papers from scratch, no templates.  Sounds simple, but it was challenging because I am so critical of what I create and always want to make it better by adding something to smooth the edges so to speak.
But I sat on my hands every time I got critical and tempted to just try and improve it lol.
And I still have a long way to go, but the results of my efforts are pretty good I think.
If you download them, do let me know what you think :)
So I used only pictures I have taken of different objects and textures, did a lot of playing around in the Filter section of Photo shop, blended them many together to get different results and tweaked the opacity and levels here and there.
Bottom line is I am kinda chuffed that these are my own creation.
Below is a pic of small sections of the photos I used to do this.

And here are the 8 papers created for your enjoyment.
