Hi Peeps

Just dropping by today to share a page created for the Prima September BAP. I loved this sketch, as it was so open to interpretation. 

This was the sketch..


I started with a background of mica powder and worked up adding paint runs using the awesome paint run stamps, then started layering my embellishments. I placed a line of sequins in place of the title and then added the title in place of the journalling. All elements of the BAP are there, plus more to make it my own.

Laugh Altered Canvas


Just sharing my latest creation created for the July Dusty Attic Mood Board Challenge. The challenge  has an amazing prize of a $100 Dusty Attic Gift Voucher for the winner and to enter you simply need to use the Mood Board for Inspiration, you can interpret it anyway you like. The only requirement is that Dusty Attic chipboard is used in your creation. Once completed simply add your link to the right side bar of the Dusty Attic blog.

So this is the August Mood Board.

And this is how I interpreted it.

This month I decided to do something a little different and I chose to create a canvas.


I was inspired by the word 'Rustic' and the colours of the old barn. I loved the old weathered and rusted look of it.

I used some chipboard chain and mini fence palings as the base of my creation and worked up from there.

I once again wet the chipboard pine sprigs to allow them to be pulled apart for extra dimension.

I applied texture paste roughly to most pieces of chipboard to give that aged look and feel to the chippy.

I finished of the canvas with some gorgeous Prima flowers and a super cute photo of my favourite little man.

Graphic 45 - Treasure

Hi Peeps!!

Dropping by today to share a page with a tutorial I created for the Graphic 45 and Clearsnap blog hop that is going on right now as we speak. Be sure to drop by both blogs for some amazing inspiration.

So for my project I chose to create a layout using Graphic 45 Rare Oddities collection along with pigment ink and Smooch Glitz by Clearsnap.


I wanted to try to create a page using the Rare Oddities collection to show it could be used for something other then Halloween. I absolutely love the colours of this collection.

The page consists of lots of fussy cutting and dimension, just the way I like it. How cool are the little owls?

The fussy cut paisleys are a stunning colour and the Clearsnap Smooch Glitz really helps make them shine.

The background was created using the Prima Paint Runs stamp stamped multiple time and then the ink was blended with a watercolour blending brush.

Once blended the runs looked more real and less stamped.

Loving all of the details :)

Here is my little video tutorial.
