Scraplift A Freestyler

Wahoo!! How much fun is this!! And how incredible that these fantastic artists have leant us their layouts to scraplift. We are combining this dare with the Aussie Dares to make it even more exciting.
We have this incredible opportunity to scraplift these amazing ladies who are coming to teach us here in NZ and Australia. If you're not going to the Freestyle Downunder weekend then you should be. Here's just a sampling of the talent these ladies have to offer us.
So what's up for grabs you ask - a free class at Freestyle Auckland or Wellington for us NZers and a free class to the Sydney weekend for Aussies. If the winner can't make it to Freestyle they will receive a set of Autumn Leaves stamps - all this from the very generous David and Mary at Kiwiscraps.
Here are the gorgeous layouts you get to scraplift. You can do as many as you like, and NZers, send them in to Lianne by 6pm Wednesday April 4th. Australians send them to Sue - check the Aussie Dare blog for the deadline.

Keep checking back and scrolling down to the bottom of this post to see our scraplifts of these amazing layouts added later tonight and over the weekend.

Faye's take on Thonna Farrer's layout

I liked the big accent in the top left corner and enjoyed painting the messy photo corners. Just a bit of finger painting. It's easy to have fun with this one.

Lesley's take on Rhonna Farrer's layout

Hi, Trina here. I got so excited about this dare I JUST HAD to do two LO's! But here is my 'official' dare LO. I scraplifted the very talented Nic Howard. Wowee. What an honour. My second lift is of the incredible Tia Bennett and if you wanna check that out, then go my blog.

Lianne's lift of Emily's layout. I really love getting down and messy with lots of paint - masking and stamping with bubble wrap and other bits and pieces. Love your stuff Emily. Thanks for letting us lift your layouts ladies.

Even though I don't get to go to Freestyle I didn't want to pass up on an opportunity to lift Wendy. Here's Marieke's interpretation of her layout:

Here's my(Yolande) version of Kim Henkel's layout. When I first saw this layout I was drawn by the organised yet creative look. I have turned mine into a "Year in Review", making each of the numbers represent the months of 2006. There are stitched lines to create divisions between the photos. I counted 41 photos. WHEW!
Jo's lift of Emily's layout. I had SO much fun. I made my own foam stamps, spritzed paint with water to achieve her gorgeous washed effect, masked, brushed and generally had a good old getting mucky fun time - it was fantastic! I went with a canvas in the end because cardstock just wouldn't stand up to what I was putting it through lol! And I really love the result. Awesome dare, can' t wait to see what everyone else comes up with. BTW that word is 'sweet' at the bottom-the W is pale green and is not showing up very well.

Monique's lift of Zina's layout. I really liked the clustered look of Zinas gorgeous layout and cutting pattern out of paper is a fave of mine at the moment so I had a happy evening cutting and rearranging stars….although they don’t come near the 70 hearts that Zina cut by hand…Wow! I also lifted the transparency title idea too using paint to make it pop…love the result

Andrea's lift of Tia's layout. I had so much fun doing this one - it actually came together pretty quick for me which is not like me! I've mostly lifted the placement of the photo and paper and title. I used ribbon on the bottom right instead of thread and used staples to hold the transparency frame down instead of the cross-stiching. I actually really like this layout - it was a lot of fun!

Rach's lift of Zina's LO. I had lots of fun scrap lifting Zina's LO + to do a doube, how cool - which I don't do often. I have had wanted to do a LO about my daughters drawings for sometime + when I saw all those hearts I knew it was perfect. Thanks Zina for the inspiration - love your work :) Awesome DARE + I love seeing everyone else's take on these DARES.

Note: This dare is running alongside the Street Art dare. You still have till next Wednesday to submit your Street Art entries, then another week after that for the Freestyle entries.
