To celebrate this awesome event, I have created this project using Lindys Stamp Gang Sprays in

Starburst Spray Canna Lily Burnt Orange
Flat Fabio Spray Pineapple Paradise
Magical Screamin' Banshee Black
Embossing Powder Byzantine Bronze

All the chipboard I used in my project can be found on the Seriously Scrapbooking page. 

To create my page I first added some stencilling to white Cardstock with texture paste.
I then used the Lindys Stamp Gang sprays to add colour to my page.  By sprizting some colour on to  plastic packaging and then stamping the colour on to the page.  
Here's what the page looked like before I began adding my chipboard and photograph.

I used Byzantine Bronze Embossing Powder on all of the chipboard pieces I used on this project. 
Scroll down for some close up pictures of my project. 

Thanks for joining in on this Blog Hop I hope you're enjoying all the Lindys Stamp Gang and Imaginarium Designs Inspiration

Hello out there... August D'Lish Scraps August Cybercrop.

Not sure anybody reads this blog anymore but I've been reading through some old posts and comments and got a little nostalgic about how 'into' blogging I was a few years ago and saw peoples names I hadn't seen in ages and thought what a wonderful community it was.  Alas it dropped by the wayside as things do in our lives as work and families situations dictate.

Lately I've been feeling really good and happy about my scrapping and creating in general.  I've been taking part in some challenges for the first time in well over a year and it feels good.  Connecting with communitites of like minded people and just generally feeling free to create whatever the heck I wanted to. The result - well I love the last half dozen pages I've created.  

So below are a couple of fun pages I created for the August D'lish scraps cybercrop.

One thing I've felt over the past year is that my journalling on pages has been sadly lacking and I'm happy to get back into documenting something a little more meaningful.  Note to self! - Must remember why I started scrapbooking in the beginning.  Memory Keeping!

Thanks so much if you are one of the few who has stopped my blog lately much appreciated.

Scrap and Chat Retreat 2016

Hey all!  A couple of weeks ago I attended one of the most fabulous retreats.  Scrap and Chat Retreats.  Held at 'The Country Place' in the Dandenong Ranges in Melbourne.   The most fabulous arty, creatives gathered together.  It's so amazing to gather with people that 'get' the scrappy/arty thing and understand where you're coming from...Look at all of us.

Here are some of the pages I created at the retreat, the rest you'll see a little later as they were for Design teams. 

Love this one using different bits and pieces from various companies.  Papers from Kaiserkraft, epoxy stickers from Cocoa Vanilla Studio and American Crafts.  And there's also a heart on there from Charms Creations, which I sprayed pink. 

The background on this page is using texture past and a Crafters Workshop Stencils and the colour is from watered down Distress Paints.  

Next page is using the Paige Evans collection from Pink Paislee, love those thickers!

And the last page today is this magical rainbow one.  Accentuated mainly with black and white papers and embellishments and black house paint a la Lisa Oxley.  A New Years Eve photo.  The rainbow effect was with Kaisermists and a smattering of water droplets to achieve a bleached effect.

thanks for stopping by, until next time.

Getting Painty!

I recently created this page for Imaginarium Designs Chipboard.  I used Dylusions paints to create a fun painty background.  

I created another couple of pages and used them as class samples, using the same technique and taught them for Surreal Creations.  Imaginarium Designs sponsored the class with all the chipboard pieces and I used the Cocoa Vanilla Studios - Colour Me Happy Collection

Kaisercrafts' March Collection - Finders Keepers

The Finders Keepers by Kaisercraft released in March and is one of my all time faves I think.  It was such a delight to scrap with and so far I have created four pages and a mini album.  I couldn't stop!!
All the pages below are up on the Kaisercraft blog HERE.
A mini album I whipped up sticking Captured Moments cards together concertina style with washi tape.
