Tags - Prima


Dropping in today to share a couple of tags I created for Prima. They are doing a 12 days of Christmas product showcase. I got to showcase some of the amazing Finnibair mixed media products and the super cute Bloom Girls.

We were to create tags for these project so this is what I come up with :)


I have never ever done anything quiet so mixed media but I stepped right out of my comfort zone and I am pretty happy with the finished tag. I admit I still have a lot to learn but I will get there.

I used some of the stunning Dusty Attic Hanging Ornaments to dress it up a bit.

Simply G45 - Altered Wine Glass Table Centrepiece

Hi Peeps!!

My turn this month for the Simply Graphic 45 step by step project. The object is to make a project that is simple, affordable and can be made in under 60 minutes.

So for my project I had to make an autumn themed table centrepiece. I decided to use bits and pieces found in most homes and partnered with lots of fussy cut butterflies from the stunning Botanicabella collection papers. Honestly the hardest part of this project is the cutting of the butterflies, but the finished projects looks fantastic and all that fussy cutting pays off.

I added some glass rocks and fairy lights inside my glass to give it illumination, battery operated candles would suit this project as well perfectly.

Here is my step by step tutorial.

Life Is Good


Popped in today to my latest creation using some gorgeous Dusty Attic chippy. I have been playing around using some softer colours and creating my own mists from the Dusty In Colour paint range.

So this is what I come up with.

'Life Is Good'

So very pale and pastel as you can see. The background mist colour has been created by mixing some Dusty In Colour Sunshine & Jungle Green together with water. 

The paint dots were made with Dusty In Colour Sugar Plum. The chipboard was painted with white gesso and then given a very light wash of colour.

In the background I have also used a very dry brush to apply paint through the Flower Burst Template.

Played again with water, pulling apart the feathers for added dimension.
