Bad Girls Couture Haute Mess Art Journal + VIDEO

Hello I'm here today to share my first ever post for Bad Girls Couture
I have been working with the stunning Haute Mess Art Journal, Mediums & Acrylic Paints. This is what I have created

I couldn't decide on just one page, so I decided to do a double page.

I wanted a happy and uplifting page, and I have used my Haute Mess Acrylic Paints to achieve this. 

Lots of layers to build up to this. 

I love this Art Journal, the pages take anything that I throw at them. Beautiful stitching and excellent canvas quality. 

I have also used the Clear Gesso & Glass Bead Gel Mediums.

I have a process VIDEO that you can watch HERE. I also do a flip through of my journal before I start. 
I hope you enjoy it, thanks for stopping by!

Whisper Collection Cards

Hello all!
I'm here today to share some cards that I have created using this month's  Whisper Collection from  Kaisercraft.
This is what I have created, a set of 6 cards. 

For my first card I have 'Thank You' 

Lots and lots of layers and distressing in this one :)  I love the natural feel to this collection, it's gorgeous. 

You can find the full instructions for this card HERE.
My second card is 'Beauty in Simplicity' 

I have kept it simple in keeping with the sentiment.
I have added in some white card stock to help define  the different patterned papers in the paper pad.

I have also used some of the acetate Flora & Fauna, that I have fussy cut out. 
You can find the full instructions for this card HERE.
My third card is 'Thinking of You'

I have again gone for a similar design but with black cardstock.  I think it really helps highlight the papers.

The fourth card that I created was 'Just…

7 Dots Studio January Challenge - Behind the Gate

Hello all!
As you may be aware there is a new challenge up over at
7 Dots Studio
We have a gorgeous Winter Moodboard to share with you...

As we are in the middle of summer here in Australia, this is quite a refreshing board to see. Although I did struggle a little because we don't really get winter here in sunny Queensland hahaha. But I managed to come up with this

I have used a mix of collections to create this, some Hazy Days, and some Air Mail.  You can find the full list of products used below.

Some Garden Party Word Stickers, and some Writer's Block too!

I have used a flair from Um Wow Studio, that is from the Dreamscapes collection. 

Some Northern Lights Word Stickers.

I loved this colour scheme and the natural frosty feel to the moodboard. 

I have added some corrugated cardboard for extra texture.  I'm quite happy with how it turned out. 
Thanks for stopping by!
Until next time.

'Gypsy Soul' Layout
for 7 Dots Studio

Hello! I'm back again today to share another creation with you.
I have created this layout, featuring my son, for  7 Dots Studio

I have done a bit of a mixed media background for this layout,  using a mix of colours, and different stamps.
You can watch the video for this layout by clicking on the picture below.

I have used the gorgeous Fortune Teller collection,  with a little bit of Dreamscapes mixed in.

I am in love with this teal colour!  And I love all the gypsy elements to it.

I have built up my layers of papers and I have added some 2Crafty Chipboard fencing for texture.

I have used lots of the tags and die cut elements. 

I think my son really does have an old soul gypsy in him somewhere,  as he is always wanting to wander and explore new things and places. 
I love this about him. Always ready for adventure.

I have used the following 7 Dots Studio products:
Hazy Days Clear Stamps
Northern Lights Clear Stamps
Fortune Teller 12 x 12 Tags

2Crafty Chipboard
'Live every day with Intention"

Hello all!
I'm popping in to share my latest creation for

2Crafty Chipboard

I have a layout of my daughter in front of this gorgeous orange trumpet vine. Every year there are lines of people waiting to take their photo in front of the flowers.

The owner has done a wonderful job with this one. It's been there for a long time.
You can watch the VIDEO for the creation of this layout  by clicking on the picture below

For this layout I have started with a few swipes of my amazing Haute Mess paints. I have added some stamping around where I want the Mandala to sit.

I have then used the gorgeous '6" Mandala No 1" as a frame for my photo stack.  I have finished it with black gesso, giving it a great matte finish. 

I have then used a couple of the foliage swirls from 'Foliage Set 4', that I have again finished with black gesso.

I love how the black pops against the colours!  I have used the 'Blessed' collection from Kaisercraft.

Lastly I have used the &quo…

Some New Year Fun for 2Crafty Chipboard

Happy New Year All!
I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season.
To bring in the New Year I thought I would create a playful page for my latest
2Crafty Chipboard project.

For this layout I have decided to leave my chipboard raw,  I love how it looks with all the lovely pastel colours,  from the Lovely Day Collection from Mintay Papers.

I have used one of the 'ATC Word Banner Set 1'

 I have used some of the '11" Fine Floral Frame Set', among my layers.

I have also used 'Together' from the 'Word Circles Set 2'

More of the fine florals mixed in with the fussy cut flowers from the collection and some gorgeous Prima & Lil Birdie flowers.

I have also used one of the geotags from the 'Assorted Mini Camera Set'
I hope you like what I have created,  I will be back later in the month to share some more 2Crafty goodness with you.
