Disaster... Or new opportunity 

Well cleaning in ones home is
A must at some point....
And my wonderful husband has been kindly
 redoing my craft room so I'm doing my crafts in our
Dinning room which is well to say the least... Fustrating 
As when ever you looking for something
I have to go down stairs....
Well I'm getting extra excecise with all the running 
Backwards and forwards...LOL

So whilest cleaning my son was dusting and has broken
My favourite bottle....
Yes he has been helping...
Yes he loved this bottle as much as I did...
Yes he got more of a fright than me...
But I guess one can only see this as an 
Opportunity to re do this and see how I can
Improve on my work....

So watch this space... I have a new project!

Thanks for stopping by scrappers


Simply Beautiful

Simply Beautiful

I took my stencils and applied gesso to my page through the stencil to get
My images. I then dried the gesso. 
I used my sprays,
Dylusion's: lemon zest 
                     Campso teal 
but I watered down the Campso teal to get the 
soft blue I was after.

I then used two different background stamps and did random background 
Stamping. I used my chocolate dylusions and made
"Coffee" rings on my page.
Added my photo used gesso to seal to the page and used 
Alittle dylusions to blend the picture with the page.

Glued down my twine and my letters.
Heat embossed my chipboard bird and flowers.
Super happy with how the page turned out...

Hope you enjoyed it

Family together

This jounal page was heaps of fun and was a great deal to figure out.....

Let me explain...
I wanted to do blues as my back ground so out of my scrap pattern papers
I started to select the pattern blue tone pages I wanted.  
I began to cut two pieces of each in random sizes. 
I used broken china - distress ink to edge each piece of paper.

I then stuck each of paper down with mod podge.
I made sure that neither pages are the same with the layout of the
pattern papers although I have the same pattern papers. 

I then added my photos and my embellishments. 

Happy journaling everyone

New Beginnings

New Beginnings

So if you have followed or been on my blog.... Thank you!!
Thank you for your time, your efforts and your kindness!
This has been a year I would like to close the door on and let 
2015 be a New  Beginning for Me and my family...
As each family carries burdens through life some are 
Just to heavy to let you do what you love....
I have let my worries stand I the way of 
My creativity and I do hope that I can find it again,
And re-ignite the flame within me to inspire others,
In the years ahead.

I would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas
And May 2015 be filled with all the Love and joy for you
You and your family's seek for yourself!
God Bless


Yes.... I do love butterflies...

I  stamped heaps of butterflies out until it was covered over my plain white cardstock
I cut them out and glued them down on my journal page.
They are randomly placed as I wasn't sure if they are going to be a main feature or just a background!

I then found gelatos - colours I wanted and began to blend over the page.

 I applied gel medium to seal the page. Added the finish touches.

Love to you all

Antique Bottle

Hi All this is my first attempt at doing a bottle...
so for you that are so very talented... please be bear with me!
This is how I started.
I got an olive oil bottle washed it well and removed the label.
I used masking tape around the neck of the bottle first,
then did a thin layer of gesso first and repeated. Once both layers were dry I applied two layers of cream.
I used burnt amber and watered if down and used a tooth brush and flicked it all over the bottle.
then let it dry.

whilst drying I cut out from my collage sheet and serviette the pieces I wanted.
I mod podged it done and then used bark brown ink and rubbed the edgings of the
bottle and blended the images once they had been added.
I then took off the masking tape and add my twine.
 I finally added a butterfly and a key with my two cogs.
I glued down my key so it doesn't swing every time I pick up the bottle.

hope you enjoyed my bottle as much as I enjoyed making it
Happy scrapping
