Hiya!! Happy Australia Day to all you wonderful Aussies out there! I thought I would celebrate today by sharing something special I created just yesterday with you. A few weeks ago I came across some wonderful media products my cousin had purchased by 13 @rts. Until then I had never before heard of this company so I was thrilled when she let me experiment with them on a card I made. Last night I decided to visit the 13 @rts blog for the first time where I found loads of wonderful inspiration and discovered a gorgeous sketch, which I knew I had to use to create something!

Here is the sketch from 13 @rts:

My Interpretation of the sketch:

'Mommy's Boy'

 For the background I have used a variety of media including gesso, texture paste with a mask, green felt tip pen, watercolor paints and led pencil. As you can probably tell from the direction of my gesso and paint drips, I actually prepared the layout around the other way, turning it this way only after the background was complete. If you would like to see how I achieved this background, then please keep reading as I have prepared a quick tutorial for you further into this post.

Some details:

I have used almost entirely Prima products for this layout, excluding the base paper which you can only see the thin border of at the back, twine, thread, pegs and paper clip, media products, and of course I couldn't resist adding that cute little Bo Bunny Moustache to the page.

 Part of the challenge was to include the word 'time' somewhere on the layout. I have chosen to include it in my journaling which says, 
"Every time I look at you my heart melts with love for you. I feel so blessed to be your mother and I know that no matter what you will always be my little angel. I will always love you." 

When I was creating my embellishment clusters, it felt like there was something missing. I knew immediately that I needed to add some smaller elements for balance. I was devastated to discover I had completely run out of all my small paper roses. Going through my stash to see if there was anything else I could use I came upon two of my old Prima Aria vines which I recently recycled of an old layout that my son decided to draw on. At first I didn't think they would be much help, but after a moment or two thinking about it I decided 'Why not cut the little flowers off the vine, and use them individually on the page'. As you can see I gave this a try and I am absolutely thrilled with the result. I feel it gives my page a little something extra and helps it stand out a little more. 

I am absolutely loving all these metal bits and pieces from Ingvild Bolme at the moment.... This was the first time I have ever been fortunate enough to purchase them as it's the first time our local store has had any in stock. They rarely have any Prima in store and the few times they do it's usually only flowers, so I was very excited to discover these in the store! Another new favorite would have to be Prima's wood icons. How stunning are these flowers!! I will definitely have to see about my store ordering some more in a bigger variety.

Behind my photo I have added some calico which has been frayed. I decided this time to add a little extra detail by hand sewing across the top and the bottom of the photo before framing it with various twines. I have added the pegs (there is a second small one beneath the rose) to help keep it secure.

To finish off my page I tucked in behind my layers some messy thread, which I glued in place when I was happy with the position, and dry brushed some gesso over my embellishments to add some uniformity to the layout and to help tie it all together.
Here is how I created the background:

1. Scrape some white gesso onto your page, then using a mask of your choice, use a palette knife to randomly add texture paste. Remove the mask and allow to dry.

2. This step is quite time consuming and if you want you can skip this one and just continue with step 3, though I personally love the effect this step gives. Taking a felt tip fine liner pen (I have used a light green), outline all of your masked area. When this is done start to color them in. I recommend doing this in a grid like pattern, leaving at least every second one uncolored, though still outlined. If you wish near the edges where your masking stops you can leave some small areas completely uncolored. When you are done, wet a paint brush and 'paint' over your penned in areas with water. Because you have colored on top of gesso/texture paste the ink will just sit on the surface, without actually soaking in, this will allow you to move the ink around with the paint brush. When you have finished you layout should look something like this....

 3. Next I have decided that I want a little bit more color in some areas and some paint drips as well so I have added some watercolor to the page, tilting to allow drips. Play around until you are happy with the way this looks. Use a very wet fan brush completely covered in watercolor paint to add lots of small paint flicks to your layout.


4. When your paint is dry take a lead pencil and randomly outline some of your masking that has been hidden with the paints, though take care not to outline areas where the pen detailing is still very noticeable. In the areas you outline with pencil also use to draw a line separating any differing colors. Finally, use your pencil to outline some of the paint splatters as well as draw your own little circles and spots like so.

5. When you are happy with how your background looks, add a little stamping. I have used a kaisercraft texture stamp to add little triangles, followed by my fave Prima stamp around the edges. I tested how this stamp would look in an area of the page I had planned to cover which you can see in the photo below.

6. Finally, trim about a half a centimeter off each edge of your page and distress. I have chosen to add some little tears as well. Then cover the entire back of the paper with some double sided tape. Select a piece of paper to stick it to and gently smooth in down starting in the top corner and working your way down. This will eliminate any warping and wrinkles your paper might have, giving you a nice flat surface to work on. Complete your page by adding papers, photos and embellishments. I have chosen to turn my background around once so that the drips are horizontal on the paper.
Once again, here is the finished layout:

 That's all from me today.... I hope you have found something here to inspire you, and that my little tutorial was helpful to anyone who was curious about my background. Thankyou 13 @rts for such a fabulous sketch to work with and the opportunity to participate in this challenge. I'll be back sometime tomorrow with my newest creation from CSI so please pop back then. Hope you are all having a great Australia Day for us Aussies, and that everyone else is having a fantastic weekend!!

Hiya!! Just stopping by today to share with you quickly a layout I made for ScrapFriends Sketch Challenge 21. I must admit that I am becoming completely addicted to these sketch challenges. They are always so amazing, unique, and different from the last. I love them! This months sketch in particular is one of my faves!! It is so different from anything I have seen before or attempted, and I knew at once that I couldn't resist the opportunity to give this a try. Pop over to their blog to check out their challenges, Design Team work, and other inspiration. You won't be disappointed!!
Some of you may notice that this layout is quite different from what I normally do, though still definitely 'me', and I'll be honest and tell you that the reason for this is  I felt that my crafting was getting a little boring, a little too predictable, I was no longer taking risks or trying new things (or even old things), but instead had fallen into a pattern of following the same guideline in everything I created, and that is not something that I like. My favorite thing about creating is the freedom to create such a wide variety of things, using the widest variety of products and techniques that are at your disposal. This I was no longer doing, and I felt it was time to change things up a bit. I began with the Art Journal I shared with you on the weekend, moving to this layout, and a few others too, some I am not able to share with you just yet. Most of what I am doing is still the same, I just might add a new technique here and there, try a different way of embellishing a layout, ect. I absolutely love the things I have been creating lately, and I'm so glad I took the opportunity to allow myself to grow creatively, as it is very rewarding. I hope I can continue to inspire you with my work. For those who would like to become followers of my blog I would like to quickly remind you that the google friend connect 'join this site' button is broken. Right next to it you will see a little tiny double box/square. Please click this instead as it works. It's just a different button for the same thing. Alternatively you can add me to your circles. Now.....

This months amazing sketch from Scrapfriends:

Sketch Challenge #21 

And here is what I came up with:


I had so much fun creating this.... I actually found the composition of this sketch very difficult to work with.... Which of course makes me even prouder of the final result. 
I have used a lot of different brands on here... Prima, Glitz, MME, Studio Calico, Echo Park, Dusty Attic chipboard, Kaisercraft, Basic Grey and a lot more.... I wouldn't be surprised if this page has something from all the major brands on it!!
I chose to use this photo of my Son because even though he is not smiling, I love how he is is staring at the camera, with the bottom lip dropped down enough to see he doesn't yet have all of his teeth. It's one of my favorite bubba photo's. He was only 8 months old when this was taken.  

Some close-ups:

There is lots and lots of dimension on this layout, which I found plesantly surprising. Normally all my paper layers end up looking really flat and I spend hours embellishing trying to get some height back! As you can see my title, Hello... was cut from a piece of patterned paper by Glitz. The hanging light was added to balance the black doodling that was on both sides of the layout, but unfortunately no in the middle. This was the final piece added to the layout as it took me a little bit to really figure out what was missing.

I made the little orange chevrons myself by drawing them on a piece of cardboard before cutting out, painting white with some gesso, and then orange with my watercolor paints.
In keeping with the sketch I have placed the Kaisercraft 'All Boy' rub-on in the same place the 'Hi World' would go, and instead of tucking a cog behind the bottom of the photo, I have instead placed a flair badge on top. The sideways banners on both sides of the layout are meant to represent the torn strips of paper on the sketch.

I just wanted to quickly share with you this close-up shot of my background. As you can see I have added texture paste to the background using my Prima mask, before painting with watercolors. This was when I decided that I needed to add something else to the background so that it's not the same as what I always do. With this in mind I took a black pen and began outlining areas of the texture paste, which then evolved into outlining areas of differing color, particularly where there was black watercolor, drips and flicks. I finished off by adding some stamping and then gently scraping some gesso over the raised areas to highlight some of the details.

Here I have added the circle Dusty Attic chipboard arrow in the same place as the circle on the sketch. I have painted in black with Kindy Glitz, while the bird was given the same treatment as my chevrons. As always my photo is placed on some calico, this time with twine both underneath and on top of the picture. The hot air balloon is meant to represent the upside down tear drop shape shown in the same position on the sketch.

I have added the green clip (which I stole off my Dad's desk), along with a peg to the top of the photo, helping to secure the twine circle. I have added the yellow flower, butterfly and wood veneer car for extra detail.

Finally, the 'Wow, Your Amazing'  speech bubble was added to represent the writing on the strip at the side of the sketch, while the nut represents the circle sitting on the frame in the sketch. I added the butterfly to the title to help balance the few darker elements of the layout. Finishing touches were completed with the addition of some mini roses that I had painted and a few little Prima paper flowers.

So that's it from me today. I really hope you have enjoyed stopping by today and that you have found something here to inspire you. It was an absolute pleasure playing along with this challenge.... Thankyou ScrapFriends for once again exceeding any expectations and providing such a unique and fun sketch!! I will be back on Saturday with more shares, so I hope to see you then. Thanks for stopping by.... xoxox!

Back again with another share, my third, from my Guest Spot over at CSI! I must say, when Debbie first sent me the case-files, this was the one that I loved most, though I was very unsure of what I was going to do with it.... Somehow it has ended up being my fave page ever! I love the photo and the testimony the most.... And I love the color palette. You can view this weeks challenge, DT work, the gallery chat and more over at CSI. We would love to see you there, maybe even play along!! I also have a new art journal to share with you today, but we will get to that next!

This weeks case-file, 106:

As you can see it contains 2 colors I don't use very often and don't particularly like, the red and the peach. Now, I never plan my pages.... They just sort of come together. With this layout I almost forgot to use any red and peach at all, and I was so far into my layout that I had to think of a way to add these colors and not ruin this page I was already in love with because I didn't have the time to start the case-file again on a second layout. In the end I decide they would make the perfect accent colors, so I added a red side banner and glitter circles and a few peach flowers. The rest of the layout really focuses on the white, the sea foam greeny/blue and the yellow. It worked though and I couldn't be more in love with the final result. The only thing I didn't get right, was leaving enough space to journal without ruining the composition, so I have been a little old fashioned and written on the back of the layout, reminding myself of all those pics my Mom and Nan wrote on the back of!

'Night Now'

I know my title is a little hard to see, and that is because I chose to use the flair for my title.... It was just so perfect for the photo, which is one of my all time faves, and my testimony.
For the evidence I have used:
Gold: the Roman numeral for 4 is gold, and I also have a little gold dragonfly on my layout.
Numbers: I have used the Roman numeral for 4, this represents how many months old Jet was in this photo.
Circles: I have stamped white circles, and red glitter circles onto my background.
Stripes: Patterned paper layered behind photo.
White background: my background is white (obviously), though it does have a very faint pattern on it. I'm not a fan of lain white card stock as I can never manage to keep it clean.
For my testimony I have used all 3 inspiration words: Good, Bright, and Be.
My journaling states: 'I pray you will always dream good, bright and happy dreams, but just in case I will always be here to watch over you while you sleep.'

Here are a few ;-) close-ups:

I have painted a decorative chipboard frame with some white paint and placed it underneath my photo, but on top of some layers and foam tape just to give it a little more dimension.
Some gorgeous Prima flowers... The orange/peach one is just a cheapy white flower that I painted to match the palette.

I just love this decorative resin piece by Melissa Frances. I thought it looked kind of like a wave so I place the little wood veneer boat by Studio Calico on top..... He's sailing away to dream land!!!

My title up close! The pegs I have painted texture paste, then added glitter and some sparkle powder to it.

As you can see here my white background does have a slight pattern on it.... but hey... nobody said it had to be plain white right!!

My background was made using my new fave Prima stencil.... the netting one by Finn. I have actually turned it on an angle though and used it to create more of a grid pattern in my background. It was fun to change it up a bit and I now have to great designs to use from one stencil!! I have then added watercolors, another layer of texture paste through the stencil to highlight some areas, paint flicks, stamped circles (the red glitter to the small ones!), and stamping.

So the other week I was asked by none other than my Mom, why I normally put so many close-up pics up? You may have noticed my attempt to cut them down..... and so I thought I would just quickly share with you guys why that is. When I look at someones blog, particularly if I see something I really like, I hate it when they don't have close-ups of something I really want a closer look at to admire, or see how it was done. Sometimes, I really want to see the layers, or hidden tucked away embellishments, background details or just about anything else and there is just never the right photo to show me this. So I usually attempt to get all the details for you in my photos so that you can see these things that I don't like to miss. I have endeavored to get more details in less photos for you though.... I am still getting the hang of all this blogging stuff and I would love to hear from you what it is you want to see and read about when looking at blogs.

I realized on the weekend that it has been a very long time since I shared anything from my Art Journal with you.... mainly because I haven't done any journaling!! I bought a new journal a couple of months ago, a Prima one designed by Finn, which has been sitting on my desk all this time, not getting any use. I decided the New Year was the perfect time to open up a new journal and get creating. Today I am just going to share with you the cover.

'Create Memories'

 I have to admit I am in love with the way this turned out. It's different yet still me, and I have been wanting to create a cluster like this for so long, but always felt so guilty about using all my Prima stuff because its so hard to get here, and once its gone its gone.


  For the background I have layered strips and squares of Prima papers, netting, gesso, texture paste used with my Prima netting mask, and a little stamping using my Kaisercraft texture stamp. I have finished the background with little flicks and swipes of watercolor pint here and there, using my finger to highlight the masking with a touch of greeny/blue paint.

I have used trinkets and beads from broken jewellery pieces, tiny washers, a chipboard arrow and a Tim Holtz pin on here, just about everything else is Prima. I love how well all these embellishments work together even though they are by different designers and from different collections.

I cut the title 'Create Memories' from some Prima packaging, while the made with love charm underneath is from an old bracelet, as are the two gold keys.

I have added the Le Mia rose to the center of a mechanicals bottle cap. Originally I wasn't going to add any flowers, but I loved how this flower had just a touch of color matching the rest of the cover in the center. Almost like it was meant to be there!!

Here you can see some of the netting in the background along with the paint and paper layers. I really love how the background on this turned out. I have done something like this before but it never looked like this, mostly I was just experimenting to see what would happen!!

I have folded some brown cotton in half and just randomly twisted and twirled it down onto the background before gluing and embellishing. The little white gear sitting on top of the Prima tile is actually a little plastic mag off one of Jet's toy cars! It broke months ago and I decided to keep the pieces, thinking maybe one day I could put them to use. For a while I didn't think I ever actually would, but I'm glad I didn't throw them out as this one was a great addition here. Now I just can't wait to use the rest!! 

That's it from me today... I'm off to rest as I have been quite unwell these past few days. I hope you have enjoyed today's post and that you have found something here to inspire you. I wish you all a fun and creative weekend!

Hello, hello, hello!! I had a wonderful week with my family.... My parents took my brother, My Son and myself on a lovely drie out to margaret River this week, just for the day to have some lunch and a look around. It's a long drive for 1 day about 3 and a half hours each way, but it was well worth it. Now it's back to reality and I am here to share with you my layout that I made for case-file 105. When I first received the image, colors, evidence, testimony and sketch from Debbie, all I could think was 'As much as I love these colors.... This is going to be very hard for me to pull off.' As you can see below, the sketch, by the very talented Emma Stafrace, is really not me, and even though I have a little boy who loves rockets and stuff at the moment, creating a themed layout is also not me. Picking out the things I would/could use, and altering the sketch to suit my style without straying to far off course, was very difficult for me. I spent forever looking at it , getting my stuff out, packing my stuff up and so on, before I actually got any work done. In the end it came together quite by accident. I have only used one photo in my layout instead of 5, however it still follows the basic composition of the sketch.
Don't forget to pop over to CSI where you can see all the great design team work for this challenge, find other challenges, visit the reader gallery, chat, and so much more. It's a really friendly and fun environment to be a part of!!

This month's challenge and sketch:

For the evidence I have used:
Stars: On my badge, banner, and my background
Circles: I have used a number of circle shaped embellishments, as well as the twine frame around my photo.
Something odd or unusual: I have used 'Star' table confetti stars on my background, and a straw!!
For my testimony I have chosen to write 3 quirky things about my subject, and I have also included the Inspiration word 'strange' in my journaling.

'Your Such a Character'

I had lots of fun making this layout, particularly with the background. I used my new Prima mask, some stamps for texture, and watercolors.
Here is what the background looked like before I covered most of it.... 

I tried to mix my watercolors to match that Jade green in the color palette.... This was as close as I could get.... I really love these colors though!!

Some close-ups:

I absolutely adore this picture of my Son, it was the morning of his second birthday and I'm trying to snap pics and he's trying to see through the camera. It was completely by luck that I manged to get such a clean photo that had all of his face still in it!!!

Some yummy Prima flowers and wood icons... I'm soooo loving these at the moment. I made the banner using scraps of paper from my layers, and a few other scraps too.
Other brands I have used inclue Studio Calico, Tim Holtz, Basic Grey, Echo Park, and I think I even used some paper from October Afternoon on here!!

Just though I would quickly share this pic as it shows some of that fun background texture, and of course the super cool table confetti stars.... they were so much fun sticking down.... NOT!!

My journaling.... The other day we were in the car and Jet was in the back singing some strange song.... One of the lines had something to do with Chicken Strips, which he was singing at a really high pitched note!! I was in stitches.... Thankfully I wasn't driving.

Last buit not least I decided I would just quickly show you the whole banner up close with the title and my little twine wrapped straw at the bottom. I have used the final piece of my broken necklace on this layout!! I'm sad it has gone..... it's made such a fun and I guess unusual embellishment. I looked around for another necklace the same, purely to pull apart and use on my layouts, but I could no longer get one..... Oh well!!

So I think that was the shortest blog post I have ever written... LOL. I will be back to my usual self sometime this week, but for now it is far too hot. It's about 38 outside now, and meant to get hotter.... Which is about 100 degrees Fahrenheit... Yesterday we got to 45 where I live (114 Fahrenheit). Thankfully the weather is not always like this, though I do love it!! I hope you have all had, or are still having a lovely weekend.... I have quite a few finished projects on my desk so make sure you pop back later in the week.

Thanks for stopping by!!!

Sunday, January 5, 2014


Hello again everyone!! As it is now the new year, I suppose I had best start with.... Happy New Year!!! I hope you have all had a wonderful and creative start to 2014!! I'm very excited to announce that I have been asked by the lovely Debbi Tehrani to join CSI Color, Stories, Inspiration as a 'Special Agent' for January! She approached me a few months ago and I gladly accepted. Today I get to share my first creation for this guest spot with you, created for case-file 104. For those of you who have already checked out this amazing challenge site today, then you may have already seen this layout. For those of you who haven't, please pop over there and check out this weeks gorgeous challenge along with all the other stunning DT work.

This months challenge:

My first thought when I saw these colors was 'girl page', and then I thought 'why not make a boy page'. I'm still not entirely comfortable with using pink on a boy page, but I have done it before and it ended up as one of my fave layouts so I decided to try it again. Obviously the color palette was just perfect for doing this. 


  For my evidence I have used quite a few things:
Frames... My twine fame around the photo,
Crown.... The little acetate crown at the bottom of the page,
Hearts... Black acetate hearts to the left of the photo,
Fabric... I have used the black mesh fabric, fabric flowers, and calico behind my photo,
Silver Metal... The Prima jeans Junk-yard Findings and the Tim Holtz Sprocket Gears,
Paint.... I have used gesso, texture paste and watercolor paints,
Quote/Phrase Sticker... The MME chipboard word LIFE, the Studio Calico wood-veneer 'You are Here', and the AC peg that says 'Hello',
Lace... I have used a Prima lace flower,
Ribbon... I have layered 2 ribbon bows together.
For my Testimony I decided to incorporate my title into my jounaling, keeping it simple, using the Inspiration words Smiles, Sunshine and Up (I have used all three), with the word Sunshine being my title.

Here are some close-ups:

As always I have created a mixed-media background for my layout, this time using my beloved brick mask, gesso, texture paste, watercolor, mists, glitter and some glass micro-beads. 
Some of the brands I have used include Prima (as always), MME, AC, Studio Calico, Teresa Collins, Tim Holtz and Pink Paislee. Of course there are a few other on here too.

I have used a combination of natural waxed twine and this gorgeous aqua baker's twine to create a frame for my photo. As you can see I have layered quite a few different embellishments here including Prima flowers, black mesh and some metal peices by Tim Holtz and Ingvild Bolme, with my fave Artisan Elements by Pink Paislee and wood-veneers by Studio Calico.

More Prima flowers and lots of paper layers here in all different colors... I really love the way this turned out, as it was the one thing I was not sure about when I first started.

As I mentioned I have incorporated my title into my journaling. Once again I kept my journaling short and to the point, and sometimes just a few words speak volumes.

These pegs from American Crafts would have to be one of my fave things about this page, I know they are pink, like some of the flowers, but I don't think they make this layout girly in anyway whatsoever. I'm particularly loving that little arrow!!

You all know how much I love dimension on a layout and this page is full of it.
I'm really loving these metal bottle caps from Finnabair's Mechanicals... I will need more soon.... I have been using them on just about everything lately. They look so good with a flower layered in the middle.
Thankyou so much to Debbie and the other ladies at CSI for having me along this month. 

I also have a second layout to share with you today. This one I created purely for the purpose of playing with all the fun new stuff I received as a Christmas gift from my Mom.
I really loved working on this next layout, and I really love how it turned out. I have wanted to scrapbook this photo of my Son for so long... I love his face in it, and such big eyes!!! For some reason though I never seemed to be able to get around to it. Every time I picked it up and started to do something with it, it would end up back in my photo case. So.... after months of 'Umming and Aaahhhing', here it is.


I have used mostly Prima for this layout.... I got a lot of Prima stuff for Christmas which was very exciting for me as it is very hard to get Prima where I live, and our local store got a whole pile of stuff in just before Christmas. Unfortunately most of the stuff they get in is usually 6-12 months behind their releases, sometimes more.... I don't mind though, for me it's new and I love all Prima's products!!
Lots of close-ups.... again:

For my background I used the Sunset paper from the Songbird collection, covered it in a thin layer of gesso, then got to work with my texture paste and my new mask, the netting one by Finnabair. I'm in love with this mask right now!! When the texture paste was dry I painted using my watercolors, and finished of with the little triangle texture stamp, and butterfly stamps, both of which are Kaisercraft.

Lots of paper layers as always, this time combined with some fussy cut pieces of acetate and frames from the MME Chalk Studio Collection papers. I Have also added twine behind some of the paper layers, as well as on top of my photo.

Some of my new Prima flowers, along with wood-icons, which I have to say are really amazing to use... I will definitely be ordering more of these in the future!!

I have layered my flowers, and other embellishments on top of this great little chipboard piece from Dusty Attic. It is actually a little circle frame in the middle, as that is not something I would use I have instead placed my big brown flower over the top.
The little flag at the top of the page I made using a small frame/journaling spot I cut from a sheet of Teresa Collins paper collection, Memorabilia. I loved the unique shape this provided for my flag once folded in half around the toothpick.

I have cut out lots of those tiny orange flowers from a very old sheet of patterned paper, I can't even remember who made it, to layer amongst my clusters to help tie in the orange from my background.

I have tucked in half of a Prima flower to this top corner, then added the little wood icon rose behind it just for balance.

I'm not quite sure why I chose to add the very fine gold bow behind the blue AC bow, though I'm glad I did as I'm not sure it would have looked right without it there!!

Another broken piece of jewelery from my necklace, I'm almost out as I have been using bits and pieces from this constantly over the past couple of months.
I finished off my page by adding lots of these Studio Calico pearl dots to the background along with the little black Kaisercraft rhinestones.

Last but not least this great metal lamp from Ingvild Bolme's junkyard findings, and the quote by Kaisercraft, which doubles as my title and journaling. It is meant to represent my Son's journey through life, which began the day he was born, and also my journey through motherhood. It is not meant in a more literal way of him taking his first step, but as the steps we go through in life.

Thankyou so much for stopping by. I hope you like what I have done. I have lots more to share with you over the next few weeks, so stay tuned!! I hope you all have a wonderful week/weekend. Xoxoxo!!
