Hello Hello :)

Today I would like to share with you some layouts that I taught recently at Escape2Create Retreat in Port Lincoln. I taught a class on mono printing and wire weaving, and of course I had to use the amazing Imaginarium Designs Chipboard.

For this layout I first coloured the chipboard with chalkboard mist and then gave it a white wash with watered down gesso.





For this layout the chipboard was given a white wash with watered down gesso.




Well that is it from me for this month, I do hope you have been wowed by the awesome design team as much as I have!!!!

Cheers and Happy Scrapping!

A card for a teen

Yesterday our little girl turned 13 and this month,
the team have been creating cards just for her!

Here are three fabulous cards from Leonie, Solange and Tracey.

Solange made this gorgeous card.

"This is my card for Jessica's Birthday!

I used corrugated cardboard on the base.
I chose a soft and feminine style.
The chipboards were covered with acrylic gesso."

Leonie has chosen a simple but colourful design for this special birthday card. A rainbow of watercolour splashes and a stamped image of a young lady surrounded by a circle of chipboard hearts which have been sprayed with grey Kaisermist. The number '13' has been covered with Prima's Art Sugar in charcoal.

And this one from Tracey
"Happy 13th Birthday Jessica! 

I have heat embossed the large Butterfly (IDS0002) in a white embossing powder, the ID chipboard numbers(IDN001) and ID Precious word (IDW006) in aged white embossing powder. I have layered a metal butterfly over the ID chipboard butterfly to add extra dimension.
I have created the background spraying 3 different colours of mists onto resist sheets of water colour paper."

Thanks so much girls ... she loves them :)

Scrappy Happy - with Tracey Fowler

It is hard to believe that we are half way through another year!  This time of the year gets particularly busy for my family and I. There are lots of sport, school and work commitments. As life does get busy it is hard to make time for those things that we enjoy to do in life. For me one of those things is Scrapbooking and I have learnt to make sure that I schedule time in during the week to do what I love. When I scrap, I completely forget about everything that is going on around me and it is my time to tune out and relax, which then makes it easier for me to keep up with things  and stress
less about the small stuff.

"Wishing You Happiness"

My Dad recently celebrated his 70th Birthday. It was a great opportunity to take some photos of him and his family together. This layout that I have created is a picture of the two of us. (I am often behind the camera, so there isn't too many photos of myself with my family members)

I have painted the chipboard using white gesso, and heat embossed the ID butterfly.


I have heat embossed the cogs and pie charts with an aged old gold embossing powder.

"Love & Laughter"

I have used two pieces of ID Chipboard, Denises Oval Art Deco Frame small and Clock Face and heat embossed them both with an aged ivory embossing powder. I have then cut them both in half so that I can used them symmetrically on my layout. I also will often cut my chipboard in half if I am going to tuck it behind paper layers or clusters so that I can get the most out of my chipboard.


Thank you for stopping by, make sure that you find some time to do something that makes you happy!
