Thats all for today. Until next time happy creating.

"Love" created for Maja Design

 Good morning my friends and thankyou for taking the time to visit me. This morning I am sitting in a motel room getting ready for a set up day for Craft Alive Toowoomba. And I had a little time to kill before hand so I thought I might share this with you a little earlier than I had originally thought to do. 

Today's project is a canvas. I love to change things up every now and then. Not that it is really that much different but I find the sizing is where I have trouble. This is quite a large canvas so needless to say I have used a lot of embellishments to fill the spaces. 

This is "Love"......

The start of my project was pretty basic with the cutting of the gorgeous Miles Aparts - "Hopeful" patterned paper. This has always been a favourite collection to go to. And when I had picked this piece up to put away last week I thought to myself omg I know what I am going to do with you. hahaha...

I adhered to the primed canvas and then primed it again using a clear gesso. I do this to protect my papers from any media I may or may not add in my creativeness. And it also protects my project from that wretched thing called dust.

Steel Blue 

I have used the Shades of Miles monochromes to add layers beneath my gorgeous photo of my youngest daughter from many many years ago. Yes you have probably seen the photo before but it is a favourite and it gets used a lot. 

After the layering was added to the canvas I started embellishing by adding in some new moulds from Prima Marketing. Than there was the addition of flowers from 49andMarket. Omygoodness I just couldn't add enough as you can see. I have used the newest colours of Taffy and  Slate for my project here. They are just sooooo pretty !

I added in some Crackle Paste and then coloured the background with iCraft Chalk Paints in Rose Debut. I also added in some pretty flower pearls from Dress My Craft and a selection of white branches from my stash. 

Below are a few close-ups for you to see. 

I hope you enjoyed your visit to me here today.
Until next time take care and happy crafting.

"Memories Captured" Design Team Creation for Scrap and Me

  Hello and welcome back. Today I am here to share with you my newest creation for Scrap and Me. This time around I have created a masculine page. Something that I don't do often enough, but I wish I did. This project I have titled "Memories Captured". I have used a photo of my son from a holiday about 10 years ago. As with most boys getting a photo does not come easily. I captured this photo luckily when he was least expecting it. Haha ! Because my photo was a dark sepia colour I gravitated to using the grunge patterned paper from the Afternoon Sky collection. This was my starting point and this below is what I created. I hope you enjoy it ! 

For those of you who are asking if this will be a kit, the answer is a definite yes. So stay tuned on my business facebook for its release. 

 I absolutely adore this grunge background page. It has so much interest on it that you really don't need to add too much to it....... however I decided to add just a little more interest by using some texture paste and a stencil. I coloured over it using some silver and black pigment powders. 

To keep with the grunge look I added in some gel medium and water over the photo to give it a wishy wash and handled look. 


I used the papers from above and did a lot of fussy cutting. These pieces were added to the layout using foam tapes to add dimension. Some of the fussy cut pieces were distressed and moulded to fit over the page where needed. 

Below are some of the close-ups from this project for you. 

So that is all from me today. Thanks so much for popping by my blog. I will be back very shortly with more inspiration. 

Until next time happy crafting.

"Live your best life" - Design Team Creation for Scrap and Me

 Hello and welcome back. Tina with you today with my next Design Team project to share with you. 

This project was titled "Live your best life". And for this I have decided upon designing around a photograph of my eldest daughter at her school formal around 5 years ago now. I still love this photo so very much. I decided to firstly print the photo as a black and white and lower the saturation on it. This always helps me using muted toned papers. I have used I think my most favourite collection of all the collections "Afternoon Sky". Blue is always my go to colour, and this has some gorgeous tones of blues and greens through the papers that I could just not resist. 

Well that is all from me today. Thankyou so much for popping in to see my Design Team creation. Wishing you a very happy sun shiny day.

"Forever & Always" - Design Team Creation for Scrap and Me

  Hello and welcome. It's Tina here with my very first design team project for Scrap and Me !! I am super excited to be designing once again and for a fabulous company such as Scrap and Me. My heart nearly jumped out of my chest when I opened up my design team package. Each and every paper collection is just outstanding. Each more beautiful than the last if that is ever possible. 

So without further ado, I would like to share with you my project titled "Forever & Always". I chose to do an off the page project using a wood plaque I picked up at my local arts and craft shop. I have chosen to use a photograph of my youngest daughter on her formal day looking absolutely gorgeous. I have been awaiting to use this photo for sometime now. And when I discovered the beautiful collection papers of "Admist the Roses" I knew instantly that this was the perfect fit. 

                                    Please find below some close up photos of my project below. 

Below are the papers used from this beautiul collection. 



That is all from me today. Thankyou so much for popping by. 
Until next time happy scrapping.
