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

Your First Breath Took Ours Away

Working from home today so what a perfect time to share another layout for you all.
This one was a recent class with a twist. I created the layout in the class and everyone followed along. 
No previous idea's, no idea where it would go but I think it turned out well. I hope you feel the same.
This is a special photo of my son with his first born. A gorgeous little girl for my growing family,


For this layout I used Couture Creation papers Seaside Girl, 2 Crafty chipboard, a mix of 49 and Market and Green Tara flowers, Distress Oxide Sprays, Finnabair Art Stones and some pretty shells to finish it off.

Thanks for stopping by
till next time
hugs and kisses

It's been such a long time since I have been able to post on here because like most of us just super busy.

So today I would like to share with you all a soft vintage layout that I completed for a class recently featuring of sepia photograph of my family members.

I have used Blue Fern papers, laces, doilies, chipboard from 2Crafty, Prima Flowers and embellishments by Prima and Kaisercraft. 
Lots of layers create a gorgeous soft vintage look.

Thank you for stopping by
