Capture the Moment - 2Crafty Chipboard

I'm here today to share a layout that I have created for

2Crafty Chipboard
My latest creation is featuring a photo of my children and I. It started as a pic of my daughter and I and we were photo bombed,  quite perfectly, by my son!  It was the perfect capture. 

Anybody that know me, know I LOVE a black background....  and it makes my chipboard stand out and shine!

So, for this layout I have used a number of the 'View Finder' chipboard pieces,  these come in different sizes so are awesome for layering.

I have finished my 'View Finders' in white gesso, which gives a great matte finish. I have then used watercolours to partially colour them in colours to co-ordinate with my papers.

I used some Pink Fresh Studios papers for this layout.  I have layered some of the view finders in my paper layers.

I have also used one of the 'Assorted Mini Camera Set' and one of the 'Assorted Arrows', I have embossed these in white.

Finally I have used 'Captu…

Beauty for 2Crafty Chipboard

Hello everybody!
I'm back today to share a layout with you that I have created for 
2Crafty Chipboard
This layout features a photo of mine. I really love nature and macro photography, and this is just one of my shots. 

For this layout I have gone for a nature/floral arrangement around my photo.  I have used the Vintage Moments collection from 13Arts. Lots of fussy cutting of the floral elements that went so well with my photo.

I have used two of the 'Leafy Shrub Set 1'. One on either side of my photo.

I have finished these first in white gesso, and then with some shimmery spray.  I let it pool in some areas so that the colour would be stronger.

I have also used two of the 'Sharon's Butterflies', I have glued these to the leafy shrubs, as if they had just landed. I also bend their wings up slightly to give added dimension.  These have been finished in watercolour paints.

I am really loving the watercolour effects. 

Some gorgeous flowers...

Lastly I have used the…

It's your time now for 7 Dots Studio + Video

Hello again! I'm here today to share my latest layout for 
7 Dots Studio
This month I have used a mix and match of collections to create a layout  featuring an older photo of my son, but one of my favourites.
It's your time now 

I've gone for a bit of a grungy feel to this layout.  I have used mostly Writer's Block collection papers with little bit of Hazy Days thrown in. 

I have also used some awesome 2Crafty Chipboard 'Lightbulbs', on either side of my page.

Lots of layering of the Tags from both collections with some of the Elements.

I love how well these two collection mix. 

And I LOVE the flair buttons that you can get to match each collection. 

I have created a process video so that you can see exactly how I created this layout.
You can watch it below :)

Shine Bright - Art & Soul Studio Challenge

Hello all! I'm back today to share a layout that I have created for the new challenge over at the

Art & Soul Studio
This month we have a gorgeous moodboard for you to play with

And this is my take on the challenge....

I went with a grungy style layout using the 7 Dots Studio Hazy Days collection. It had the right elements I was after.

I have done some stencilling and stamping on my base  before happily splashing away with some mists and sprays :) 

I really wanted my alphas to 'shine' (haha) and be bold and bright on my layout. I found these older thinkers I had in my stash and some small typewriter letters for my title.

I have inked and distressed all my papers and elements. 

Lots of cardboard for added dimension and to help build up my layers.

I hope you like what I have come up with.  So it's time to use up all those alphas. I can't wait to see your entry!
Until next time

Living It and a Farewell from me

I'm back again today to share my final layout that I have created using the  Pinkfresh Studio Be You collection that I received from

Anna's Craft Cupboard
I am also here to share some sad news with you all. This will be my final layout for Anna's Craft Cupboard. I have had a wonderful journey with them over the past couple of years and I appreciate everything they have done to support me and help me grow as an artist.  But the time has come for me to move on...
So here is Living It

I have used a cute snapchat pic of my son and I for this layout. I have used various pieces of the 12 x 12 Be You Papers. I have inked the edges to define them more.

I have used bits from the Ephemera Pack for my embellishments. Some 49 & Market Blossom Blends in Cantaloupe and some Piper flowers from Prima.

I have used some of the Puffy Stickers for my title and around my page. 

A couple of the cute Wood & Epoxy Buttons

More close ups

Anyways that's it from me folks! I hope …
