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 - Penelope Dee Wanderlust Collection

Hello Everyone

Apologies for being missing in action! ;-)
Life is just busy and I am crafting in the background but I don't always find time to sit infront of the pc and blog.

It is Friday and I really look forward to some more crafty time and hopefully can get to some of that blogging and project sharing too! ;-)

I did this art journal page a while back with the Penelope Dee Wanderlust collection.
I just loved these fabulous balloons.

There is a lot of texture on this page as I used a mapped background, which didn't lie as flat as I wanted it to and created texture! LOL...

I added another world map over this background, which was fussy cut from the patterned paper.

I also added stamping and then the gorgeous balloons and the sentiment.

I used distress oxides and acrylic paint to colour the balloons.

I really enjoyed this page, even the unplanned texture...
That's the nature of an art journal page...its ever evolving! ;-)

I hope you get some time to play this weekend...
Have a super one

Happy Birthday Card - Graphic 45

Hello Everyone

It was recently my Dad's Birthday and I made a card for him.
I really had to make it in a bit of a hurry and so the resultant photo was also taken in a bit of a hurry! LOL

Anyways, I thought I would still share it with you.

It was taken with my phone on my work desk.

I used some masculine images and some chippies, with a stamp or 2.

Quick but effective! LOL

Have you had to do a quickie lately??? LOL

Have a super, super day!

Choose to Blossom Card - FabScraps Pink Lemonade

Hello Everyone

I have a fresh and happy card to share with you today! ;-)
I used the fresh and bright collection from FabScraps.

I used the super stencil from FabScraps to create the leaves and then fussy cut bits and flowers
to create the cluster.

I also wanted to use the gorgeous flamingo, so fussy that to use on the card too.

The title, Choose to Blossom, is also a super stamp from FabScraps and I love the sentiment!

It's a simple but pretty card! ;-)

Have a super Monday...
Once again...your visits and comments are sincerely appreciated!
Cheers for now!

Wild and Free Mixed Media Layout - Penelope Dee Rustique and Wanderlust

Hello Everybody

I hope that you have had a good weekend and found some time to relax and unwind.

I had a 4 day weekend, which was really super, but it still feels like I could have had another few days! ;-)

I have a Penelope Dee mixed media layout to share with you today.
It's a boy page of my son.

I made it rather grungy, with lots of rusty cogs and bits and also used Paperarty Infusions to add to this grungy feel.

I also used embossing powders to create texture.

The chipboards were also treated to look grungy and have lots of texture.

I loved creating this page and love the end result! So perfect for this boy of mine! ;-)

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

Happy Birthday Card - Altenew Die and Stamp Set

Hello Everyone

I treated myself to an Altenew die and stamp set a few months ago.
I really love their sets and wanted to try the die-cut and stamp combo.

Here's the card I created.

To colour the small flowers, I used Paperartsy infusions, blackcurrant and then added pearlescent centres and white highlights.

To the big flowers I added some pearlescent to the pollen sacs.
The big flowers were easy to stamp.  The hard part was deciding the colours and tones.

The card of the base was created with distress oxides water. I then added some more stamping for the title and for the corners.

I will definitely be using this set often...all I have to do is find more time in the day!!!! ;-)

Have a fabulous day...
Thanks so much for the visit!
