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.

Best of Luck Card - BoBunny Life in Colour

Hello Everyone

Life is really busy but good at the moment.
Today is a Public Holiday and so I took yesterday off and have had a loooong weekend!
It has been really good.

Yesterday I cleaned up my craft room and have a renewed energy for projects due.
It also gave me a chance to assess my stash again! LOL....
It's good to see what one has and also the goodies you may have forgotten about.

Here is a card that I made for a colleague that was with us only a few months, as he was on contract and his contract came to an end.


Since it was for a guy, I kept it very masculine.


I used lots of layers and also upcycled a safety pin and string from a clothing tag.
I really like how it came together.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!'
I really do appreciate all the visits.
Have a fabulous day!

Love Art Journal Page - Love You Madly Glitz

Hello Everyone

I hope that you are all having a good week! ;-)

I have another art journal page to share with you, which was actually done at Valentine's Day, but I just have not been able to share it! It's been such a busy start to the year! ;-)

Anyways...so here's the page.


I wasn't quite sure about this page..but I think it has grown on me. LOL


The few bits and pieces I used here are from the "Love You Madly" collection, which I won a few years back,  It's a pretty and soft collection.


Here you can see some of the texture, crackles and bits.

It was certainly fun, experimenting with all the various layers and mediums.

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

Art Journal Page - Tim Holtz & Penelope Dee

Hello Everyone

Today I have an art journal page to share with you all.
I reaaaaaallly love this one! LOL
I think the colour combo just makes it.

Anyways...you can decide.


There are a number of layers to this page, even though you might not think so.
At least five different layers of paints, inks, stains and gesso.

I once, again, used the gorgeous poppy stamp from Penelope Dee.


I so love this sentiment too.
It's a fabulous quote!!

Thanks so much for popping by my blog today!
I appreciate all the love and comments.
Have a fabulous day!

Live Beautifully, Dream Passionately Canvas - Make It Prima March

Hello Everyone

I found some time on the weekend to play along with the Make It Prima this month.

Here's the board.

March

I love the soft and pretty colours.

So here is my take...a canvas.


I really dove into my stash and used up a lot of different Prima goodies and collections.

Here are some close-ups.




Some of these Prima flowers are a good few years old! So I was really pleased to use them.

Thanks ever so much for stopping by!
I hope you have a super day!

Art Journal Page - Berry71Bleu March Challenge

Hello Everyone

There is a gorgeous new mood board up on the Berry71Bleu blog this month.

Here's the gorgeous mood board.


It is just beautiful and I love the sentiment.

So the colouring and the sentiment were the inspiration for my art journal page.


I have had some white Basic Grey rub-ons forever in my stash and though it was time to use them.
So along with stamps, stencils, paints and inks..this page came to life.

The sentiment:
A grateful heart is a magnet to Miracles.

For more details...please pop over here to the Berry71Bleu blog.

I hope you have a fabulous day!
