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.

Art Journal Page - Life Inspiration

Hello Everyone

I hope that you are having a great weekend.

I finished an art journal page which I really love.
I love how this page came together and I was able to play and create but I also love the sentiment.
Life has been a little tough lately and this page was certainly my "out" and solace.'s my page.

I really wasn't so sure about the background colours and then amazingly it just worked and all came together.  I used gel medium for the stencilling and then distress ink and gelatos and stamping and some washi tape.

I used a few bits and pieces from Graphic 45 and then also from Kaisercraft.
It's was good to use some rather old stash.

Here are some close-ups.

"Create a life that feels good on the inside
Not one that just looks good on the outside".

I hope you have a super Sunday.

Retro Art Page Journal

Hello Everyone

After "tagging" you with many taggy projects, today I have a retro art journal to share with you.

Here's the page...pages in fact! ;-)

I used some October Afternoon bits and bobs and DoCrafts/Papermania goodies from my stash.
It has been liberating to do some stash busting.

Here's some closer views.

A lot of time and effort went into this project and I am happy with the way it turned out.

and lastly...

I chose this quote because I love it and every single creative project starts with this process!
I thought it was rather apt! ;-)

Thanks so much for popping in today...
I really appreciate your comments and love! ;-)

Have a super Thursday.

Mixed Media Tag - General Tag

Hello Everyone

As you know, I am besotted with tags and have been tagging you for a while now....
Sorry, but today I am sharing another tag! ;-)

I used my Distress Inks, embossing powders and a gorgeous die-cut Lovely Peony by Memory Box.

One can also use these general tags for gifts and all sorts.

I must say that I am really having fun with my inks and they really are so easy and fun to use.

Thanks for stopping by!
I hope you have a super Wednesday!

Love Card - BoBunny Bella Rosa & Sizzix

Hello Everyone

I hope you had a super Friday.

I made a quick card and used some BoBunny Bella Rosa along with

Sizzix Framelits Die Set 5PK - Labels, Fancy

I love these framelit die-cuts from Sizzix.
Pop over here to see more of these framelit sets.

I used a BoBunny stickable stencil and some distress ink to create that sweet little border too.

Sometimes quick and easy does the trick! ;-)
