This is the start of an inspiration patch, where I hope that fellow scrappers and creators will come and find some inspiration, or even leave some inspiration for me.

Always and Forever Mixed Media Page - FabScraps Serenity Collection

Hello Everyone

I have a page and tutorial up on the FabScraps blog here, so if you would like to pop over and have a look, that would be super!

Here is the page I created, using the Serenity Collection, which is really so stunning and soft! ;-)

This photo was taken, somewhere here before Christmas, and Joe was just a few months old.  He was so very precious.

I did some gesso stencilling, water colour effects and some stamping.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a super evening!

Artsy Craftsy Paint Palette

Hello Everyone

I hope that you had a good weekend and also a good Monday.

A scrappy friend wanted to buy the paint palette kit from Colourful Memories and so we both decided to get one. We attempted to do it last week at our scrap and chat evening, but I had left most of my supplies at home, due to being rushed, as my husband was late getting home.  So yes, it really did not turn out anything like the example project, but I am really happy with it, none the less! ;-) Not that I have ever been one for following kit instructions!!!!!! LOL

So here's the end result.

It was really nice to try and do something different for a change! ;-)

...a little bit of gesso, lots of stamping, some chipboard and some blooms! ;-)

I love that stamped sentiment..."Always find time for the things that make you happy to feel alive".
My work life has been very stressful and busy over the last few months and my creativity and scrapping has been my solace, my peace of mind, my sanity and my retreat!! I am so glad to have had that "outlet"! ;-)

Thanks for stopping by!
I hope you have a super evening!

Crackle paste has also become of my favourite mediums and of course BoBunny stickable stencils are a must! Really love them! ;-)

Card & Tag - Scrap Africa Mood Board no.63

Hello Everyone

There is a new challenge up at Scrap Africa! ;-) A gorgeous Mood Board! ;-)

Please pop over and have a look! The Guest Designers and Design Team really created some stunning projects.

I created a card and a tag for this challenge.

I used the beautiful, new Love and Lace collection from BoBunny.

Here's the card.

I upcycled this grid chipboard piece.  My son got a box game as a gift and the little pieces had to be punched out of this grid.  So I used crackle paste, paints and inks to give it a shabby look.

Thanks so much for stopping by! ;-)
Hopefully you can play along! ;-)

Have a super Sunday!

Merry Christmas Tag - Dear Santa BoBunny

Hello Everyone

It's really getting very near December now and that is still a very scary thought for me because I still have so much that I want to do. I did, however, get cracking with lots of DT stuff today, to try and get ahead and I was pleased with the progress! ;-)

I created a Christmas tag from the Dear Santa BoBunny collection.

This is really a super and festive collection.

Thanks so much fro stopping by! I still need to crack on and keep creating! ;-)
Hope you have a super Saturday!
