{She is the sweetest badass...}

Hello everyone!

Here is another layout using the stunning Sister Tribe collection by Lady Pattern Paper.  Please visit her Facebook page for more inspiration.
This is my favourite double layout sketch to use. It is a perfect way to use the journaling cards from the cut-out sheet. I used white cardstock as a base for my layout. I used the Trellis paper for top part of my background cut in half.

I layered strips from the Mosaic paper, Stone paper, Basic Essentials Gingham and Script Intense Teal on the background.

I used the “she is the sweetest badass you’ll ever meet” from the cut-out sheet for my title.
I used my Silhouette to cut out the tabs and hearts.

Here is may layout.


and some close ups.







Thank you for visiting my blog.  I hope I have inspired you.
Happy crafting!

{Because of you...}

Hello everyone!

Here is my layout inspired by the amazing September mood board.  I just love the colours of this mood board.

Here is the mood board.

and here is my layout.


 How absolutely amazing is this title and so very true.  The title as well as the leaves #2 were embossed with white embossing powder.


The Paddock Fence Set were first covered with white crackle texture paste.  Once completely dry I inked the fence with brown ink, and dry brushed with white gesso for a more distressed look.

All the foliage, leaves and Wattle blossoms were first covered with white gesso and then painted with acrylic paint and dry bushed with gesso.  I snipped the leavy frame in pieces and tucked them under the flower clusters.



Here are a few more close ups.



When everything was glued down I added art stones, splatters with diluted white gesso and black ink.

These are the Dusty Attic chipboard pieces that I used.

{Picture Pefect...}

Hello everyone!

I am sharing my September design team project with you. I used a combination of old and new chippies.  I used the Whimsy paper from the Kaisercraft Enchanted Collection. Guest designer Chrissy Tingey inspired me with her beautiful layout on the Kaisercraft blog.

It is Spring in South-Africa, a wonderful season full of light, colour and new life.

This is a true story...

Life is full of surprises!  Early one morning I noticed this little fairy in my garden, boots and all! Fairies are very shy creatures and I only managed to get a photo of this little one from behind, I can just imagine how cute and pretty she must be.  I think she is a fairy in training, as she was still in diapers.  She must be a very special fairy because she was accompanied by Tinkerbell and tiny butterflies.  She must be very fond of my garden, every morning she leaves the tiniest footprints behind, sprinkled with fairy dust...and then I feel so blessed...

Here is my layout.




How amazing are these toadstools?!!  They were covered with coarse gesso, and once dry I painted them with beige acrylic paint.  The coarse parts were inked with Versa Magic in Hint of Pesto and Bronze Age Metallique Wax and the edges with Brilliance ink in Pearl Chocolate.

I covered the Wordpl@y #2 and #4 with white gesso, making sure I get into the letters.  Once dry I dry brushed the words  with Americana Acrylic Paint in Boysenberry Pink and Poodle Skirt Pink. The butterflies and flower buds were covered in the same manner.


The edges of the wood slices were inked with Versa Magic in Hint of Pesto.

The title and word disk were covered with white embossing powder and the spider web with silver embossing powder.

Some close ups.



When everything was glued down I added art stones and splatters of diluted white gesso and black ink.

 These are the Dusty Attic chipboard pieces that I used.
