This is the start of an inspiration patch, where I hope that fellow scrappers and creators will come and find some inspiration, or even leave some inspiration for me.

General Tag - Tim Holtz and Penelope Dee

Hello Everyone

I have been on a tag frenzy lately and I have had so much fun, playing and experimenting.

So here's my latest one.

I used the Penelope Dee poppy stamp, along with lots of Tim Holtz goodies and stamps.

The background was made with distress paint, which I dabbed over the wood stencil. Then I rubbed over with distress stains and inks.
The paint resists the stains and inks and makes for a gorgeous layer.
Lastly I used my flower/swirl stamp and created another layer on the background.

The poppies were stamped and coloured with acrylic paint and a sponge.
Then I fussy cut them all.
They really pop off the background.

Anyways...thanks so much for stopping by!
I hope you have a fabulous day!

Hello Everyone

The weeks just seem to be flying by and already its Thursday again! ;-)
Roll on weekend! ;-)

I have been loving playing with some Tim Holtz goodies again and had so much fun, this past Saturday, experimenting and seeing how these tags would turn out.

Here's my favourite and this was the background to it.

Here was the end result, after stamping, painting, fussy cutting and die-cutting.

I used the

I am thrilled with the way it turned out.

Art Journal Page - BoBunny Stamps

Hello Everyone

I hope that you are having a super day!
My day is almost finished and I am feeling quite tired this evening!
Anyways...I hope to have an early one.

I really had fun with an art journal page, using some gorgeous paints and also some fabulous stamps from BoBunny.

Here's the page.

I really loved the vibrant colours.  The new BoBunny stamps are amazing too.

I heat embossed the butterflies and then coloured then with the same paints and then fussy cut them.

I found this "word" sentiment on Pinterest and I really did want to use it and something that I want to aspire to.  It's so fabulous.

a woman who emphasizes a life of passion, expressed through personal style, leisurely pastimes, charm, and cultivation of life's pleasures ...

Here are the gorgeous BoBunny stamps.

I really had fun with this page and I really like the vibrant colours.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
I really appreciate the visit.
Have a super day!

What a Day Tag - Scrap Africa Mood Board no.83

Hello Everyone
There is a new mood board up on the Scrap Africa blog! ;-)
But sadly this is the last challenge and I will be discontinuing this challenge site.
I have loved every moment, but it takes up a lot of time, co-ordinating and postings, as well as funding it myself and all the prizes.
So yes, this journey is coming to an end.
I want to spend more time on my other Design Teams and I also have other little ventures planned! ;-)
So here's the mood board.
I created a tag for this one and just love the greens and blues.
I really dove into my stash and used some My Mind's Eye goodies that I have had forever.
Simple but pretty! ;-)
Please pop along to the blog for some inspiration, especially from the Guest Designers.
They created pieces of art! ;-)
Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a super day!
