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.

Good Friends Mixed Media Layout - Penelope Dee - Indigo Collection

Hello Everyone

In January, in South Africa, we have National Scrapbooking Day.
of course, this was one event not to be missed and was so enjoyed with the Scrappers Village Gals.

I created this page, in celebration of the day.
I used the fabulous Penelope Dee Indigo Collection.


I even made some blooms for this page, so that the flowers were the right colour.


...as is with most of my pages, I had to have leaves and beautiful blooms! ;-)


I also added a little bit of lace to the page, since we all had vintage hats to wear! It really was so fun! 

 Here are some photo's of me in my vintage hat! Ansie doesn't know that this hat will still go missing sometime!!!!! LOL



Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!
I really appreciate the visits.
Have a restful day!

Beloved Aunt - Penelope Dee - Be You Collection

Hello Everyone

I have a new Penelope Dee page to share with you and this is such a special page for me.
This page is devoted to a special Aunt of mine.


I used lots of the Penelope Dee stamps on the background and then fussy cut the gorgeous hexagons.


The photo I used was of my beautiful Aunt under a flowering plum, right at the beginning of Spring.
I think this photo is just perfect, as she blooms in every single way and has been such an inspiration to me.


I fussy cut the letters for the title and then stamped Aunt. I wanted the title to flow with the design element on the page.

I coloured the Colour Me Flowers with Fired Brick Distress Oxide and love how they turned out, along with lots of die-cut leaves.

I also handmade little pink flowers and filled the centres with Nuvo drops.

Thanks ever so much for stopping by!
I hope you had a great weekend and good Monday.

Cheers for now.

Art Journal Pages - Penelope Dee - Paradise Collection

Hello Everyone

I have been using my altered Enid Blyton reading book, to create some of my art journal pages.
Today I am sharing some of those.

I created this page, using the Penelope Dee Paradise Collection. I really love how this one turned out.


I had so much fun with this page and it was a real stress reliever! ;-)


I fussy cut lots of bits and pieces and used die-cut pieces too,


I used wool, little pebbles and all the little bits and pieces for different textures and also adding dimension.

I love the sentiment too...it's so true..

Paradise is always where Love dwells.

Thanks ever so much for stopping by!
Have a super day in Paradise.
