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.

You are Awesome Tag - Denise van Deventer - Penelope Dee Wanderlust

Hello Everyone

School holidays are almost at an end, but I have really enjoyed not being rushed in the mornings and afternoons! ;-)

I have a mixed media tag to share with you today, using the gorgeous Penelope Dee Wanderlust collection! ;-)

I created a rusty background, using Gathered Twigs distress ink.
I then used a Penelope Dee stencil and some crackle paste, over some leftover paper strips.

I also used some Penelope Dee Colour Me flowers and chipboard pieces.
These were coloured using distress oxides.

I then used a Penelope Dee stamp for the sentiment.

I really love how this tag turned out! ;-)

Thanks so much everyone, for visiting and leaving some love!
I really do appreciate it! ;-)

Have a fabulous weekend!

Hello Everyone

Happy Friday to you all! ;-)
I hope it has been a good week.

I am up on the FabScraps Blog here and would love it if you popped along and had a look! ;-)

I created a fairly simple card, with some fussy cut bits.
Sometimes simple is good! ;-)

Here's also a look at this pretty and fresh collection!

Having somewhere to go is Home - Mixed Media Layout - Penelope Dee Rosalee Collection

Hello Everyone

I am back today with some Penelope Dee goodness, with the Rosalee collection.
This is one of the pages that I had not shared yet.
This collection is really so beautiful and pretty!

I created a page of my 2 neices.

I fussy cut many bits and pieces and then still also used some die-cuts in between.

I love the Roses on this collection. They are just fabulous.

This last photo gives you a side on view and you get to see the dimension and layers.

This photo was taken 4 years ago already.  The time seems to fly when it comes to the kids.
But they are still special and beautiful girls! I love them to bits! ;-)

Thanks sooo much for stopping by!
Have a fabulous day!

Down to Earth Mixed Media Page - Rustique Collection Penellope Dee

Hello Everyone

I have certainly been missing in action on my blog, but gladly I am still here to tell the tale! ;-)
I have been super hectic and then I also took a few days off, during the school holidays, to spend with my son. Then I also got a really bad dose of the flu, which I am still trying to shake off too!

Anyways, I am sharing a real favourite page today, one I created for Penelope Dee, using the gorgeous Rustique Collection! ;-)

Here it is.

I had this idea to create the sunrise colouring and effect around the photo, which is exactly what this photo is about.  It was a beautiful sunrise at Redhill Farm, Limpopo Dec 2017.

So I used the gorgeous, tree chippies from Penelope Dee, a chipboard frame from Blue Fern Studios and some grassy and twiggy die-cuts, along with Paperartsy Infusions and distress oxides, to create the sun and the sunrise colouring.
I am such a fan of these beautiful "sprinkles"! LOL

I also used the Blackcurrant sprinkles to colour the title.

Here you can see the sun and the twiggy branches.  I used a circle die-cut and some paper to create my outline and then dabbed distress oxides in and around the sun. Then I added some more sprinkles and colouring.

Lastly I added some white splashes along the bottom section, just to lighten it slightly.

I really love how this page turned out.  It is definitely a favourite for me! ;-)

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a fabulous day!

Fathers Day Cards - Penelope Dee Wanderlust

Hello Everyone

Happy Fathers Day to all the Fathers out there today, wishing you all a blessed and super day! ;-)
I spent the day with my family and it was great to sit around the fireplace, have some lunch and just enjoy each others company! ;-)

I created some cards for the men in our family, using the Wanderlust Collection from Penelope Dee, along with a few bits from Go See Do and the Maestro Collection.

Here's the first one.

I went a bit rusty and grungy on all 3 cards and really love the result.
I played with Infusions from Paperartsy too....I love these little sprinkles! ;-)

Here's the second one.

And a closer look...

Lastly, the 3rd card.

Here's the close-up.

On all these cards I used chippies, metal bits and charms, washers, embossing powders, 3D powders, 3D balls, Infusions and gel medium.
I can't tell you how much fun it was to play! ;-)

I really love this collection from Penelope Dee and I really love the Infusions from Paperartsy. They are my new favourite sprinkles! ;-)

Thanks ever so much for stopping by!
I hope you had a fabulous day!

Cheers for now
