In honour of Mother's Day!

I hope everyone enjoyed their Mother's Day, whether you are a mum, grandma or daughter. Lucky for me, I got some time to good! I had just received my pack from 'ArtStacks Design' so couldn't help but grab some of their pretties. Starting with this bunch of flowers from their Anemones and Friends Corestack, so perfect for Mother's Day...or any day for that matter ;)

I had created the background with a mixture of Dina Wakley paints, plus a Tim Holtz stencil, as well as Dina Wakley gloss sprays. Though rather than spraying them, I poured the last bits on my page. Adding the words of wisdom ministack for my title. I love their tissue paper, so easy to tear and use.

Here is the full double page of my art journal. It's so easy to fill a double with this mini art journal album from Dina Wakley.

Thank you for stopping by, it's much appreciated.

FOCUS ON FACES - Kraft+ Challenge

 This month's challenge over at Kraft+ Challenges is FOCUS ON FACES. This month we are teaming up with the 'More Than Words' team, so you can enter both challenges with one! How easy is that!

Here's my take on the challenge...luckily I have a few Kraft pages left in my Dina Wakley art journal...

I broke out my Dina Wakley products to create my 'Face your Fears' page ;) from the paint in the background, to the stamps and finally the gorgeous face from her Collage Collective.

My title is created used these cute little letter stamps from Stampin Up!

I hope you'll join us, check out the rest of the gorgeous creations from the team HERE.

Artstacks - Wonder

Hello all! Today I'm sharing an art journal page created to showcase the fabulous ArtStacks Design products.

For this page, I initially sprayed through a stencil, then added a cut piece of the 'brown dressmakers paper' from the 'The Homemaker pack'.  I did more stenciling and splattered some ink around, before adding the window frame, from 'Doors and Windows pack'. Adding the cut-out roses from the pianola paper from 'The Homemaker' pack and the cut out girl, from The Dressmaker' pack The final addition was the 3 words...laugh, imagine and wonder, as my title. These can be found in the 'Faces and Figures' pack.

You can see by my close up that I also added the Tim Holtz wings to my girl.

The 100 Day Project - Day 45 to 50.

I'm back again with an update of #the100dayproject...I've made it halfway! Yay! Haha we won't mention that I'm still about a week behind, but super proud that I'm still in it and have got as far as I have.

Day 45 and 46.

 The backgrounds were created using Distress sprays and stencils. I'm loving the new 'Collage paper pads' from Kaszazz.

Day 47 and 48.

Day 49 and 50.

On the last 3 tags, the backgrounds were created with Dylusions paint and the gel plate with various stencils. All stamps, stencils, paper, etc. can be purchased through my Kaszazz web store. If I can assist you, please let me know.

April's Kraft+ Challenge - Symmetry!

Good morning & happy Good Friday to you! I hope whatever you do, you have a lovely Easter weekend. I'm personally looking forward to some serious 'down time'.

Today I'm sharing this month's brilliant challenge from Kraft+ Challenges...Inspired by Symmetry!

 How amazing is this mood board! Though I did struggle with this month's, but isn't that what a 'challenge' is all about??? Typically there is nothing symmetrical about my creative work, so it got me a little stumped. I kept thinking about butterflies, as they are definitely what comes to mind with symmetry. Now with Tim Holtz recent release of the 'Perspective Butterfly', who could blame me for indulging ;) it's so freakin' gorgeous!

I used DWM gloss sprays for my background, with Kaszazz and DWM stencils. I just adore this 'circus burst' from Kaszazz. For my title, I also used a Kaszazz stamp...'eat, sleep, play, repeat', I couldn;t think of anything more perfect! 

You can check out the full range of Kaszazz products HERE and always remember, I'm happy to help.

Pop over to the Kraft+ blog to see the amazing creations made by the rest of the team, you'll find it HERE.

The 100 Day Project - Day 30 to 44

 Where are the days going??? I'm so far behind on the 100 Day Project, the days are seriously getting away from me! The countdown is on for holidays, I'll happily not leave the house & craft all day ;)

Day 30...

I'm certainly loving these paper dolls by Tim Holtz. It's hard to see here, but I used alcohol markers to colour in...the pants a dark grey & hat & bow tie an olive green.

Day 31 & 32...


These and the rest were done while at retreat, a few weeks ago...they were created using products from Kaszazz. If there is anything you find of interest, please feel free to contact me or there is a link to my online store on the side bar.

These 2 are more creations with Kaszazz, just with the addition of the Tim Holtz paper dolls.

Day 35 and 36...

Day 37 & 38...

Be Kind...ArtStacks creation.

Hello, I'm sharing today an art journal page using a mix of ArtStacks goodies. After creating my background using various stencils and paint, I added paper pattern from the 'Dressmaker' pack and the flower paper from the 'Anemones and Friends' pack. Add to that the girl from the 'Dressmaker' pack and a title from the 'mini stack' and you are essentially done...with a few minor details ;)
