                    Welcome to my little blog

 Today I want to share a canvas that I created recently for a class in my shop. I love this photograph of my granddaughter " Eliza" that I captured.


    I have used the ScrapBoys collection " Bird Romance "  for this canvas. 

I cut strips to layer up in the background then I fussy cut the flower cluster to add to the background in and around the fences. Prima flowers and 2Crafty Chipboard heart to frame the photo. 2Crafty chipboard vines and leaves were added around the flowers too. To colour these I use Stamperia Leather spray (My favorite colour to use)


                                 A couple of close ups .......

I hope you like my project
and thank you for stopping by

Beautiful Moment

Hello and welcome to my little blog.
I don't seem to have much time with the shop and life but I will try to post a little more often. This is my goal and hopefully I can achieve it.
So today I would like to share this layout with you all.
This is one of myself, hubby and youngest son at the history park in Ballarat Victoria. taken a few years ago now.

I can't remember the papers I have used but they have been distressed with ink to vintage them to a lovely brown color. I have used a Finnabair stencil to add t=some texture on the background
I made the large cog using one of Finnabairs mould and added some texture paste for dimension. I love Stamperia's leather colour spray which I used on all the cogs.
Clocks were painted and finished with Finnabairs wax in Aged Brass
 Finshed the layout with a mix of 49&Market and Prima Flowers.

Thanks for stopping by

I hope you like the layout

Treasure the Little Things

Hello everyone,
today I am here to share a recent class that I taught at 
 in Swansea, NSW
This photo is of my granddaughters all dressed up for Halloween. I love to do pages that have dramatic contrasts and I think this one achieves that.

I have used Gesso on the white cardstock and then using a red paint and paintbrush painted circles to create the background. So easy and you can use so many colours to achieve this look.
Punched around the edge and then adhered it to a black piece of cardstock. I added some stenciling with Stamperia white paste and then some red paint splatters and finished it off with some black stamping..

2Crafty chipboard painted black, circles, stars, cogs and title painted in silver.

Matt the phot in black and I had some red pattern cardstock that I could add layers behind the photograph.

I have then layered up the flowers, cogs and stars around the frame and the last thing that I always do is add the title.

I hope you like this one
Thanks for stopping by and till next time

Hugs and kisses
