'Create your own Sunshine'
2Crafty Chipboard

Hello all! I hope you are all well.I am here today with a layout to share with you.I have used a photo of my daughter and her bestie!
2Crafty Chipboard used:

For this layout I have used some of the gorgeous 'Moroccan Bits',  that I have embossed white, cut up and tucked into my layers.

I have also used one of the 'Flower Medallions', also embossed in white. 

I have also used one of the 'Flourish Adornment Set 4', embossed in white, in among my flower cluster.  Love how it pops on the dark wood background.

I have built a little cluster on the other side of my page.

For my title, I have used one of the '6 x 4 Phrase Sticks Set 5', which I have left raw because I like how the text looks when unfinished. 

I'm loving the white of the chipboard with the dark rich colours of the papers. I hope you like it too!
Until next time!

Colourful Characters
Scrap Matrix

Hello all!
This month for our challenge at Scrap Matrix we have something different for you

I have created a couple of tags with what my son calls zombie doll characters,  one boy and one girl :)

To start with I have painted my tags with my 'Dina Wakley Media Acrylic Paints' in 'Magenta' and 'Ocean'.  I have then used some 'Lemon' to stencil through my 'Grungy Grid stencil'.

I have used the 'Zinksi Art Set 02' to stamp the characters onto white cardstock.  I have then used my 'Art Philosophy Oil Pastels' to roughly colour them in,  I wanted them to look like a child's drawing. 

I have added some smears of pastels to the tag bases too! Add in some more stamping to the tags with the 'Paper Artsy ETS02' stamps.

Lastly, I have used some of the 'Dina Wakley Collage Words' for my quote.

I have used the same methods to decorate the boy tag with boy colours :)

Isn't he ever so cute??

I hope that you like what I ha…

'Greeting Cards'
2Crafty Chipboard

Hello all! I have a couple of greeting cards to share with you.
I have created these for 2Crafty Chipboard

I have created these to have in my card stash ;)
2Crafty Products used:

For my first card, I have used one of the 'Leafy Rounds', that I have finished in white. 

I have used one of the 'Card Sentiments', layered over some of the papers. In the corner, I have adhered one of the 'Frame Journal Set'. Both have also been finished in white.

For my second card, I have used one of the 'Lattice Leaves',  layered with a floral element.

I have also added one of the 'Card Circle Words - Happy Birthday' again all finished in white. 

Lastly, I have used one of the 'Foliage Set 8', tucked in among my floral elements.

I hope that you like what I have created! I'm loving how the white pops off the cards, I have used the Pomengrante papers from Paper Rose.
Until next time

Art Journal Cover

Hello there! I am here today to share some splishing and splashing with you.
I have finally decorated the cover of my art journal!! I have used the KISS method (Keep It Simple Silly!)

So this is the large 'Dylusions Creative Journal', I have first given it a few thick coats of 'Liquitex Gesso', to seal it, and give me a nice clean white base for my colours to stand out.

I stood it up on my desk, I wanted it to be a landscape orientation. I have then used my 'Dina Wakley Gloss Sprays' in Fuchsia, Marine, Eggplant, Lemon & Turquoise,  to spray and spill some colour, letting them pool and drip.

I have then used an art journal sticker from the '13Arts Journey Stickers'

I love how the colours have blended and ran together in parts. I also love how glossy these sprays are, no need for any gloss medium!

I have used another of the Journey Stickers on the bottom of the cover. I have only done the first side so far, but am planning on repeating it to the back…

Remember this Moment
2Crafty Chipboard

Hello all!
I am here on the blog today, to share some scrappy goodness with you. I have created this layout for 2Crafty Chipboard using a photo of my daughter and her friend.

I have used the following 2Crafty Chipboard pieces:

I have used some of the 'Diamond Chunk Bits', that I have left raw to coordinate with the colours and feel to my page. I have added them in among my layers and elements.

I have also used one of the polaroid frames from the 'Polaroid Assorted Frames' set, tucked in with my photo.

I have cut up one of the 'Crazy Stitched Panels' and adhered it across my page. I have also used one of the 'Steampunk Gears Medium', that I have inked black.

I am really happy with how this layout turned out,  a bit of industrial girl grunge :) I have used the 'In the Past' collection from AB Studio 
I hope that you like it too!
Until next time

Turn mistakes into Beauty
Scrap Matrix

Hello all, I am here today to share some inspiration with you. 
I have created this art journal page for this month's challenge at Scrap Matrix
I have used the challenge as inspiration for this page.
I have started with a blank page in my art journal, a quick coat of gesso to the page to seal it.
I have used my new 'Dina Wakley Gloss Sprays' in Turquoise for the centre of the page, lots of sprays and splatters. I have then used my Eggplant spray around the edge of the page. Then I have used the White spray in the centre, as a base for my girl.
Once this had dried I used the 'Jane Davenport Faces Stamp', to stamp her face out.  It has heaps of options for different facial features,  so I have stamped those also. I have then used 'Dina Wakley Acrylic Paint in Lemon', that I have watered down a little to give it some movement,  and I have painted and dribbled her hair on.  I have also used the 'Eggplant Spray' to paint her dress,  and to colour her lips.

Lastly, I have us…
