its all about FUN!

Just popping in very quickly today to share my layout for the Sassy Scrappers sketch challenge.
I have used a combination of alcohol inks and water colours to create the background. I love the viabrancy of the alcohol ink and how it works over the top of gesso.

Prima BAP using Paper Stories Love of a Lifetime kit

I have been busy creating but not blogging, so this morning I got out my camera and started photoing my layouts. With no sunny days ahead here in Perth I had to make the most of the morning sun.
This layout is for the Prima BAP. I have rotated it and then flipped it to suit. I have used the Paper Stories Love of a Lifetime kit which is full of Engraver and Lifetime papers. I have added some extra Prima products like the lightbulb and birds.
I have been experimenting lately with Luminartes H2O's and I am loving the watercolours. A warning to you that the next few layouts I post will be full of more watercolour backgrounds!
I love the clear pebbles with Helmars 450 used to glue them down and it has created air bubbles underneath.
A more traditional flower clusters but with a mixed media twist.
"The Fabulous You"


he is.... Sketchbook365

a very good morning to you all!
quickly popping in to share my layout for the Sketchbook 365 sketch. The sketch did throw me and yes I have added my touches but the base is still there - i promise!
I have used Teresa Collins papers to create this layout of my husband. It's not the best pic of him but they are so hard to get. I normally just get a blank look and here he is at Yallingup Beach relaxing with a beer.
I have used the most awesome watercolours - Luminarte H2O's. They provide shimmer with a highly pigmented watercolour. Must get my hands on more of these!
So here is my layout
"You Are My World"

Thanks for popping by
