Hello all!
This month over at Scrap Matrix ,
we are celebrating and honouring our fabulous  Tammy!

I fall in love with very new piece of art that Tammy creates! I just love her fabulous use of colour and all the bold awesome layers. 
I have created an art journal page inspired by Tammy, but I really haven't pulled it off lol.

I have started with a coat of  'Dina Wakley Acrylic Paint' in Lemon for a nice bright base. 



I have then used my '7Dots Studio Triangles Stencil' and 'Distress Ink in Picked Raspberry' and I have blended through in random areas. 

Next, I have used the 'Painterly Flower Stamp' from Art by Marlene, with Distress Inks in 'Picked Raspberry & Mowed Lawn'.



I have then used some of the stamps from the 'Paper Artsy ETS02 Stamp Set'. I have used a mis of Distress Inks in 'Picked Raspberry, Dusty Concord, Mowed Lawn & Peacock Feathers', for a multi-coloured effect.

To finish I have used some of the '13A…

Hello all!
I have popped in today to share my latest layout with you. I have created this for 2Crafty Chipboard.
'Journey'

2Crafty Chipboard Products used:



For this layout I have used a recent photo of my daughter.  I wanted to keep all my elements having a natural feel.

I have used one of the hinges from the 'Hinges Pack',  in among my elements. I have left my chipboard raw to keep with the feel of the page.

I have also used some of the 'Acorn and Foliage Set', in among my layers.  I have also used pieces of the 'Moroccan Bits' in the background.

Some forest elements that work well with my chippie pieces. 

To finish I have used one of the 'Fine Word Set 3', that I have layered across my elements, under the photo. 

I really love the forestry feel to this page.  Lots of nature elements to pull it all together. 
Until next time!!

Hello all! I hope you are all staying safe?

I want to share a layout that I have created for
Bee Arty. I have loads of bits and pieces left over from my 'Forever My Always' March kit,  so I have created another layout to inspire you.
'Capture' 


For this layout I have used a piece of Navy Cardstock as my base. I have fussy cut the frame and florals from the 'Heart Beat' paper.
I have adhere the frame to the navy cardstock,  only by the centre, not adhering the edges.

I have then used the 'Jute Trim' from the kit, cut into pieces, to the sizes of the straight pieces around the frame. 

I have then adhered the trim, just under the edge of the cut frame. 

Next, I have fussy cut a floral spray from the 'Gentle Heart' paper.  I have also fussy cut the floral from the journal card, from 'Heart & Soul'.

I have layered and adhered these pieces to the bottom left corner of frame. 

I have then cut pieces from the 'Heart Beat' & '…

Hello! I am here on the blog today to share all things  Paper Artsy with you.
I have created a set of tags for Scrap Matrix

I wanted to feature some of the gorgeous 'Paper Artsy Fresco Finish Paints', and with this gorgeous 'Pumpkin Spice' colour, my daughter's favourite and requested colour.

I have given my tags a nice coat of the paint, I have then inked the edges using my 'Distress Oxide in Vintage Photo'.

I have then used the '7 Dots Studio Garden Party Chevron Stencil' and the same ink to stencil randomly, vertically, on my tags. I have then used the '7 Dots Studio Pixelated Snowflake Stencil', and modelling paste to stencil through randomly. 

Next, I have used pieces of torn 'Dina Wakley Media Collage Background Papers', along with some stamping using my 'Paper Artsy ESA08 Stamp Set'.

Next, I have used some scrunched and inked pieces of a doily, along with some pieces from the papers in the '7 Dots Studio 6 x 6 AirM…

I have gone for natural tones and some vintage elements,  mixed with some steampunk for this layout. 
I have left my chipboard raw to keep with the feel of the page. I have used some of the 'Steampunk Gears Medium',  across my page. 

I have used a few different vintage-themed tags, mostly from Tim Holtz. I have layered my chipboard with these. 

I have also used one of the 'Steampunk Arrow Set 1', layered alongside my photo.

For my title, I have used one of the 'Mini Title Stick 2', layered with one of the 'Mini Family Icons' and elements from my papers.

To finish I have used some of the 'Steampunk Gears Small',  scattered in among my other elements. 

I really love the 'vintage boy feel' to this page.  I hope that this has inspi…
