{Colour Blast} My Special Boy ~ A Scrapbook Layout

Hey, hey!! Happy Saturday, Melinda here with you again today and I’m sharing some “special” photo’s of my big boy that I had lots of fun scrapping!!


I can’t wait to pull these out for his 18th or 21st, or heck whenever it seems funny to show some embarrassing kiddie photo’s!! This page started with these photo’s and title – I knew when I had these printed this HAD to be the title. I chose my alphas and then my colour scheme was picked for me – Just Blue and Bling!!

There is a process video here that you can watch and see my whole process and step-by-steps coming up!


Black cardstock base – after I realised I had NONE I stocked up and went straight for it for this page. A text stencil in the background and Just Blue Colour Paste for some texture and colour – I just LOVE the way the shimmer products POP on black!


After the Colour Paste was dry – I may have helped 😉 – I grabbed my Just Blue Colour Shimmer Spray and Singin The Blues Colour Shimmer Spray and simply sprayed onto my background over my stencilling.


Because the background was not prepared with gesso it dried pretty quickly so I got to splattering – I have used a combination of the Colour Shimmer Spray’s in Just Blue, Singin The Blues and, of course, Bling and also the same colours in the Colour Shimmer Pots/Cubes.



Time to build all my layers – I have used almost ALL Australian suppliers including Cocoa Vanilla Studios (You Rock collection), D-lish Scraps, Rainbow Splendor & Corbett Creations and also Flutterby Designs. Lots of blues and whites and then some extra texture with the wood veneer. The Bear may not make sense but I have always referred to my big boy as my Baby Bear and at the age he was in these photos he was OFTEN referred to as just that!


My final touches were some journalling using a white paint pen, some white thread and white splatters. My white splatters were a combination of Heavy White Gesso and water using a paintbrush and I love how it lifts the whole page!

Here are a few close ups






I just did a big batch of photo’s recently and included some of these older photo’s and am loving remembering the stories and scrapping them, I have so many ideas now!!

I hope I have inspired you to maybe pull out some black card stock or perhaps some older photo’s and have a play!

Until next time, happy scrapping – remember, the messier it is the more fun it is lol

{Colour Blast} Amazing Things ~ A Scrapbook Layout

Hello, hello, hello and happy Saturday to you!

Today I am sharing my take on this months Colour Blast challenge, rainbows!! Here is a sneaky peek!


And here is the actual challenge!


I also have a process video that you can watch right from your browser, just click on the play button!


And off we go with the step by steps!!


I started with Bazzill Marshmallow cardstock, grey archival ink, a stamp, Snow White Colour Paste and a 12×12 stencil. The stars of course 😉


Stamping first! The stamp actually reads “Tired of trying to cram her sparkly star shaped self into into society’s beige square holes, she chose to embrace her ridiculous awesomeness and shine like the freaking supernova she was meant to be.” I did lots of messy stamping in the background and let dry.


Next I grabbed my stencil, Colour Paste and a little washi to make sure I only got what I wanted! I actually did 2 applications to make the stars a little more random at the top and bottom of the pattern so after the first application was dry I re-positioned the stencil and applied more paste.


I have done this technique similarly before but last time I used hearts and my watercolours. This time I pulled out my Colour Shimmer Cubes/Pots in all the colours of the rainbow. Let me adjust that, the colours I own in the rainbow. Add in Colour Spray in Indigo and Violet and I have the whole rainbow!! You could, of course, do this very same thing with either just the Colour Sprays or the Colour Shimmer Sprays depending on the intensity of colour and sparkle you are after.

I activated all of my colours which are from L to R:
Punch, Tangereen Dream, Sunshine, Envy and Singin The Blues.
Then activated my Snow White Colour Shimmer Pot.
I sprayed both the Indigo and Violet Colour Shimmer Sprays straight onto my work surface and mixed in some of the Snow White to give those flat colours some shimmer, swoon!!!


I grabbed a paint brush and some water and off I went. I did start in the middle with Envy and then did the warm colours letting them spread and mix a tiny bit then let that dry and finished off with the cool colours. 


The colour and shimmer here is absolutely GORGEOUS!


I, of course, had to add splatters! I used the same brush and the same colours and off I went! So pretty and so me!!


I popped that aside to dry naturally and pulled all my layers and photo together and came up with my title.


Time to stick it all down! I did pull out my entire Glitter Girl collection (hello rainbows!) and tried to find all the colours in the collection and add them to their matching colour in the background.

My title is a real push for me to even use however, I am struggling a little personally and a little self love goes a very long way so I ran with it! And my journalling reflects exactly what I’ve just written!



I added a tiny touch of detail to the top right and bottom left of the page using scraps that I had experimented with colours on before I started this page and a tiny strip of washi on each.

I love how this page came together – I do love a good old rainbow – and I feel like it was just the therapy I needed right now 😉


Some of you with a super keen eye would have noticed that the step-by-steps photo’s of that rainbow coming together are different to what is on the scrapbook page – you are not going crazy! I forgot to get some step-by-steps (creativity took over!) so I re-did the paste and the rainbow and used my “demo” to make a card!! 

Make sure you play along with our challenge this month – just load up your entries over in the Colour Blast Creative Corner FB group, you could win a store voucher!!

Until next time, happy scrapping and take care of YOU!!

{Colour Blast} Cherish ~ A Scrapbook (rainbow explosion) Layout

Hey, hey my scrappy friends and welcome to my blog today!! I have my first share for the year for Colour Blast and I even surprised myself with the end design lol

I played along with the January challenge for this page and I even shared this sneak in the Colour Blast Creative Corner FB group so now you get to see the whole page.


And here, again, for you is the January challenge! You will notice that I improvised and use black patterned paper instead of black card stock – I had NO black card stock!! Argh!!!


You can find my process video on my YT channel or just click play below!



First up, black gesso smeared randomly on my patterned paper where I knew I wanted to place my 2 clusters. You can see that I have switched sides with my clusters, I felt my photo worked better on the bottom-ish left so ran with that! That’s the beauty of a sketch, right?!


Next up, COLOUR!! I cannot express how much I seriously LOVE the way the Colour Shimmer products pop off a black background!! I used Deep Water, Fire Engine and Sunshine Colour Shimmer Sprays sprayed directly onto the background over the gesso. I started with the Sunshine, then the Fire Engine, then the Deep Water.


My Deep Water gave me a little trouble – it left not only a fine mist but also bigger splatters – which, really, when you think about it, is perfect!! So to add to that look I grabbed my fave brush – it’s a round #20, dunked it into the spray bottles of the Sunshine and the Fire Engine and splattered away to my hearts content!


I left my background to dry overnight and came back the next day and started working on my paper layers. I used mostly scraps, grabbed some Charms Creations DIY embellishments and some flair.



Happy with the general placement I added colour to my DIY embellies using Singin’ The Blues Colour Shimmer Pot. If you don’t have the pot you can, of course, use a brush and Colour Shimmer Spray for a similar effect.


I love the way these turned out!! The beautiful blue colour and all the gorgeous shimmer, oh la la!! Here are the 3 pieces all coloured up, swoon!!


While hunting through my box of chippy I came across my title piece – this “cherish” word that I had previously embossed (you can see lots of embossing fun including my title on this post!) using Tangereen Dream Colour Embossing Powder and LOVED the pop that this colour brought to the page so decided I needed to add a couple more small pops of the Tangereen Dream so embossed 3 veneer hearts with 2 coats each.


Time to assemble all the bits and hence, now it is a rainbow explosion lol


A few close ups


It’s so hard to capture just how pretty and shimmery those fabric embellies are but seriously, swoon!








I hope you have enjoyed my post today and we would love to see your takes on this fun challenge this month. Just head over to the FB group and pop your take into the album for a voucher to buy more Colour Blast goodies, and let’s face it, who doesn’t love more free goodies?!


Have a fantastic (messy) scrappy day and see you again later in the month!

{ScrappingClearly} Ohh La La ~ A Scrapbook Page

Hey, hey and Happy Boxing Day!! I hope that however you spent yesterday you had a fabulous day surrounded by those you love! If your celebrations (like mine!) continue on for a bit longer I hope you have the very best time and manage to sneak in some scrappy time!

Today I am here sharing with you a page I created using the Pink Paislee C’est La Vie collection. I absolutely love this collection and have kind of been keeping it for a “special” occasion so every now and then I pull it out and have a play!


I don’t know what it is about this paper but I love it! Simply adore it so I decided to go with that as my background. I have used some Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide ink in the background with the packaging technique for a little colour and texture!

A couple of paper layers behind my photo as a mat which are Papers #2 and #8


I knew straight away I wanted to use the acrylic mirror words for my title so also decided to add a little gold in the background with my Bling Colour Shimmer Pot. I love the colour but also the way this paint dries if it’s a bit thicker, it’s almost like a puffy dot of colour!!


I grabbed the “feeling fancy” piece from the Cut Apart Paper #1 and the floral acetate tag from the ephemera pack and layered them up next to my photo. I’ve also used a plain white die cut I had on my desk as a layer and then I found a scrap of this paper and fussy cut a few butterflies for my finishing touch along with some gold sequins by Studio Calico.


This page is a little “not me” because, as you can see, there is no journalling! It’s not often I have a page with no journalling but sometimes I don’t need to add any. Like in this case, I have other pages that go with this event and this is just a photo of me that I really like, I feel pretty fancy and the cut apart sums that up along with the title!

That’s it for me for today, and in fact this year, however I will be back VERY early in the New Year with another share! I will be playing with the Pink Fresh Boys Fort collection and cannot wait to pull it out and find time to play!

Wishing each and every one of you a very happy New Year, may 2018 be YOUR year and may it be filled with lots of love and laughter, and of course, LOTS of scrappy time 😉

{ScrappingClearly} Don’t Grow Up ~ A Scrapbook Page

Hey, and hello, fellow scrappers! I cannot believe we are in December already but here we are and here I am with my first share for ScrappingClearly for the month!

Again, for this post I am sharing in detail one of my takes on one of the 10th Birthday challenges and this was a little bit of a struggle for me as I chose the “Use the ScrappingClearly Colours” on your project. Which happened to be 85% pink and with 2 boys it can be tricky! I did however get permission from my almost 8 year old, and off I went!

Here’s my page, and though it probably is not 85% pink I really do love how it came out!


And here, if you are interested, is my process video.
This one is short and sweet, this page practically put itself together for me!!



I started with a white cardstock base and a photo of my big boy from his 7th birthday party in January this year.
He just looked so grown up!! I knew IMMEDIATELY that I would use the “Don’t Grow Up” puffy stickers for my title from the Boys Rule collection.


I wanted to do some stamping so grabbed my Arrows stamp set by 49 & Market and my Black Archival Ink and got to work stamping some of those gorgeous arrows in the 2 corners.


I added in some splatters using a range of Colour Blast Colour Shimmer Pots. The colours I have used are (lightest to darkest) Blush, Punch, Lipstick and Fire Engine.

While that dried I dug into my paper scraps box and pulled out the first 2 pink patterned papers I found, which were this one from the Maggie Holmes Bloom range and this one from the WRMK Crush range. I cut them slightly bigger than my photo to use as photo mats. I also distressed the edges of both patterns.

I wanted to get as much pink on the page as I could so I dug into my little bowl of “too big to go into my boxes” ScrappingClearly stash and pulled out one of these gorgeous Heidi Swapp bulldog clips. I have had these in my stash for AGES and haven’t been able to find just the right place so I was super happy to get one on this page – it looks adorable!


I knew that I had some giant acetate numbers left in my C’est La Vie ephemera pack so I checked that the colours for the 7 would work and voila, pink and white!! Winning!

While I was in that box of goodies I saw these awesome black vellum word stickers with gold and added a few of those.


My final touch were some enamel dots, again in pink, with a few white stars thrown in too! Oh, and of course some journalling, in pink as well, and my date stamp.


This layout came together really quickly for me after I knew that my boy was ok with me using pink on his page and, I’ve already said it, but I really love it!!

I hope I have inspired you to create with your stash and while you’re at it maybe you should check out our December challenges in the FB group – ScrappingClearly – both will give you the chance at an awesome $30 store voucher!

And don’t forget our special Christmas challenge, which could bag you a WeRMK sewing machine!!


This one is due by midnight Sunday 10th, here.


Until next time, happy scrapping!!

{Colour Blast} Spread Your Wings ~ A Mixed Media Card

Hi there, today I am sharing my latest DT project for Colour Blast Australia. I have created a card I made for a work friend who has left and started a new life for herself overseas!

Here’s a little peeky….



Here is my process video if you are interested in seeing this card come together



And read on for my step-by-steps


First up, after I cut my card front to size (10cm x 14.3cm) I grabbed this very pretty stencil from my stash (it is a Dusty Attic one) and my Bling Colour Paste. I’ll tell you a little secret here – I wasn’t 100% certain of where I wanted this card to go so I took inspiration from my last DT project and ran with it!


I let that air dry and then came back and started to add colour. I had already picked some pieces I wanted to use to embellish with so grabbed my matching colours in Sunshine and Tangereen Dream in the Colour Shimmer Cubes and clean cup of water. I added a little water over the top of the stencilling and then added my colour, moving the card stock around to get the colour to move and adding water/more colour when necessary.


I did get impatient and used my heat tool to dry that off so I could move onto my next step. Splatters! Using the same colours and paint brushes I added in splatters – Sunshine to the Tangereen side mostly and Tangereen to the Sunshine side. 

When that was dry I grabbed a damp baby wipe and rubbed over my Colour Paste to get the Bling to pop once again without any additional colour on top! Did you know that you could do that?? 
It really makes the colours of the pastes pop once again!


Next up, I dumped all of my pretty things onto my base and decided I needed a dark pop of colour behind all the bits so I grabbed a mini doily from my stash and my Dusty Charcoal Colour Shimmer Cube. 

I love having white options because it makes it so easy to customise colours for any project. I just used a paint brush and painted over the doily – be careful if you are doing this that you are not too rough or you may rip/tear the doily! I almost did!! Again, I used my heat tool to dry this off and then applied a second coat in the same way.


One last step before bringing it all together – splatters in Dusty Charcoal. Again, same as above but with a different colour. I love the contrast it gives and that darker colour really makes the whole design just pop! 


And here is my finished card. I think my friend will love it – it is being hand delivered by another friend to Dubai next week! I added in some stamping in a dark grey ink and mounted my card front onto this fun and bright yellow card stock to finish it off!



Thanks as always for stopping by! I hope I have given you some inspiration for whatever you have currently sitting on your desk and I’ll see you again in couple of weeks! Please make sure you head over to the FB group, Colour Blast Creative Corner, to share all of your projects using Colour Blast goodies, we love seeing them and being inspired by you all!

{Colour Blast} Shine ~ An Art Journal Page

Hey, hey scrappy friends!! Today I’m here with you sharing my latest DT make for Colour Blast Australia. 

Here’s a little sneaky peek I shared on my FB page the other day


And this page was inspired by this month’s challenge and a very cute kit I won from an Aussie company, Kit The Habit.


So, feathers!! I love feathers and was so excited when I received this little kit in the mail with all of those gorgeous texture-y feathers, swoon!

Onto the step by steps!


First up I used a fun feather stencil by Flutterby Designs paired with the gorgeous Sienna Colour Paste and just applied a small amount in a small area on my page in my art journal.


While that dried I decided to colour my fabric doily using the beautiful Just Blue Colour Shimmer Spray.


I left that mostly to air dry (I did get a little impatient!!) and then added some colour using my Just Blue Colour Shimmer Spray. I simply sprayed right onto the page and then lifted and turned it to get the colour to move all around my stencilling.



I did air dry that and when it was done I did some splatters using Sienna and Just Blue Colour Shimmer Cubes. I also did some splatters with Roadbase Colour Spray.


Lastly I added a little bit of colour to a few flowers using a paint brush and my Sienna Colour Shimmer Spray.

When that was all dry I added all my bits on and LOVE the finished design. 


Again, another “not typical for me” page but I am so loving doing different things and playing with products!!





You still have almost the whole month to get your groove on and play with your products, just make sure you incorporate feathers in some way!!

Happy scrapping and I’ll see you again soon!

{Colour Blast} Beautiful ~ A Scrapbook Page

Hey, hey scrappy friends!! It’s Melinda here with you today sharing not only my latest DT make but also my take on the awesome October challenge!

Here’s a bit of a sneaky peek and a little secret, this page is NOTHING like what I thought I was going to make!! But I love it!


So, if you have missed it here is the October challenge….TRIANGLES! I don’t know why but I just LOVE triangles so was very excited when I saw this challenge this month!


However, that is enough chatter and here are my step-by-steps

I chose a cut file and cut that on my cameo and then I chose the ephemera packs and 1 piece of patterned paper I was going to use and trimmed up my cut file – those flowers just were not going to work! 

From the patterned paper I picked the colours I wanted to use and not knowing exactly where this page was going I grabbed the Colour Shimmer Spray, the Colour Paste and the Colour Shimmer Pots in the colours I wanted to use – Blush, Punch and Deep Water. And at the last minute, Steel.


With my colours chosen and the cut file and photo ready to go I grabbed my White Heavy Gesso and used my fingers to spread a thin layer across the page where I knew I wanted my page design. I let that dry naturally which did not take long since the layer was so thin.


Time to add some more colour!! I started with the lightest colour – Blush – Colour Shimmer Cube, grabbed a paint brush and some packaging and added some colour randomly to my back ground. I ended up just using a wet brush and moved the colour around using that and the packaging together to get the look I was after.


I repeated the same process with Punch – again using a Colour Shimmer Cube, let that dry thoroughly and then the same process again with Deep Water – this time using my Colour Shimmer Spray (I haven’t been able to get my hands on the Colour Shimmer Cube yet!!! Argh!!). I let the Deep Water dry naturally – it was dinner time – and was super happy with the dried result.


Next up some splatters – again I used the 3 matching colours in the same products and a paint brush. I added Blush and Punch splatters to the pink areas and Deep Water to the blue-y areas. At the last minute I decided to sprinkle some Steel Colour Shimmer Cube around as well just to bring that silvery colour to the page.

I surprised myself and stopped here with the colour – I really loved how it was looking and didn’t want to go over the top! I added in some shadows to the cut file with a black water colour pencil. 


Some foam to mount my cut file that had been backed with the paper and my photo. Oh and some silver stitching along the triangles. A couple of very small embellishments and my page was done! 


I am super pleased with how this came together and since it is another wedding photo I haven’t added a date or any journalling as I just wanted to scrap this photo!!

Here are a few close ups!



Check out the shimmer in these photo’s, oh la la!!


You still have about 10 days to get your entries in for the October challenge – just enter them in this album on the FB page – and your chance to win a voucher to spend on some fun Colour Blast goodies so make some time to play!!

You can also check out my whole process on the YT channel but here is the link to watch it right now, in your browser!


Until next time, happy scrapping!!

{Colour Blast} Breathe – An Art Journal Page

Hello fellow Colour Blast lovers!! I’m here with you today and I am sharing my latest DT project which is another art journal page! 

Here is a bit of a sneaky peek


And I am playing along with the September challenge which is


So, remember, you have until the end of the month to load your project into this album on Facebook using the prompts provided!

And here are my step-by-steps (I did MEAN to have a process video, phone was loaded and ready to go but I forgot to press record!!)


First up I picked a page in my art journal that I had applied some left over products from another project onto some time ago! My White Heavy Gesso and a paint brush and applied a very random (I did not cover the whole page) layer of gesso.



Next up, I of course heat set that first, some stamping for texture. I grabbed my archival black ink and a couple of stamps I wanted to use and again, randomly applied those across my page.


Again with the heat gun! And next was some actual texture! Here I grabbed my Colour Mica Powders in Espresso and Polar. First I mixed the Espresso with some White Heavy Gesso (I accidently discovered you get this beautiful grey colour when you mix these products together!) and then applied randomly through a stencil. 


I cleaned up that mixture and again with the gesso but this time Polar Mica Powder. I had left the stencil in place so again applied this colour randomly over the stencil, both over lapping the other colour and some by itself.



I love how this stencilling came out!! Remember, the more colour you add the bolder the colour you will get mixing it with white gesso!

I left that to dry naturally and started work on my chipboard. I picked a single word for my title and decided to emboss it using the gorgeous Just Blue Colour Embossing Powder. First up however, I wanted a “cleaner” colour so I applied a quick coat of gesso and let that dry.


Next up, I grabbed my embossing ink dabber, applied liberally, added embossing powder in Just Blue, shook off excess and heat set. So pretty!



While embossing I decided that the background needed some more colour so I activated my Just Blue Colour Shimmer Cube by adding a little water. When that was ready to go I applied the watercolour to the page, spritzed with more water and turned and titled the page until I got the colour where I wanted it. 


Time to put the finishing touches on! Before I stuck anything down however I decided that I had this new stamp that I HAD to use so I stamped that 3 times onto some tissue paper, heat set and tore around.


Using some different fibres, my title and 2 of my butterflies I came up with placing that I was happy with and stuck everything down. Wet glue for the fibres and title and matt medium for the butterflies.


Oops, I nearly forgot my last 2 finishing touches!! I grabbed some tiny blue beads and matt medium and stuck some of those down around my title – I feel like I now need some shells!  



And then I grabbed my fan brush and my Roadbase Colour Spray for some black splatters!


I love, love, love how this came out! I challenged myself when I started this page to keep LOTS of white space – which is VERY unusual for me in my art journal. I was lucky enough to have Fiona Paltridge create a page in my journal and one of the things I really loved about it was that not every single inch of the paper was covered so I though I’d give it a go myself!! Here are a couple more close ups!




Swoon, I so LOVE all that texture!


That’s it for me for today so have fun playing with your fun Colour Blast goodies and make sure you pop into the FB group to share your creations, we love to see what is being made!!

Happy scrapping!

{Colour Blast} Diamond – An Art Journal Page

Hello Colour Blasters, it’s Melinda here with you today and I am super excited to share with my latest make using the A-MAZING Colour Blast goodies!!

Today I have an art journal page for you all, I just wanted to play a little so started by finding a quote. This was super simple, I jumped on my computer, went to google and simply searched “quote” – I know, right?! So this quote jumped out at me pretty quickly and I ran with it!


I love, love, love the quote and I love, love, love pink diamonds 😉 But this quote just spoke to me in it’s entirety so now I not only had a quote but a colour scheme as well so off I went and grabbed some yummy goodies and my art journal and got started!

First up a quick, messy, texture-y coat of White Heavy Gesso using a wide paint brush. I wanted the texture of the bristles so I wasn’t too careful about making it neat and flat! I forgot to take a photo of that step, oopsies, but you can see the texture as the page comes together!

Next up I grabbed my Lollipop Colour Shimmer Dust and a tiny paint brush. I flicked some of the dust around the page, squirted it with a little water and then moved my page around to get the colour moving. You can see in this photo the texture of the gesso and also some product from another project where I had applied my left over product.


Oh, I so love this colour!

Next up I pulled some black, white, pink and gold washi from my stash and added random strips in a cross on my page.


Next I applied a quick coat of matte medium from my stash to seal those layers but then decided I wanted to tone down some of the colour and pattern so grabbed my white gesso again and using my finger smudged it all over the washi and some of the shimmer dust.


Next up a little stamping using a sketchy diamond stamp and a text stamp and some Staz-On ink.



I dried that off with my heat tool and grabbed my Dusty Charcoal Colour Shimmer Cube which I had activated with some water and a paintbrush and again, just added colour straight over the top of what I had already added knowing that it wasn’t going to mix as I had applied both the matte medium and the gesso.


Again, I decided that there was too much colour so when this was dried off I grabbed a baby wipe and smudged some of the colour around and took some off the page. I dried that off with my heat tool and while I had the Colour Shimmer Cube out I added some splatters with my paint brush.


Time for my quote!

I cut some diamond shapes on my Cameo and also the word “diamond”, I left the cut pieces on the mat and coloured straight on top of that so it was easier to keep all the bits and pieces together.

I have used my Colour Shimmer Cubes in Bling, Punch and Blush. First up some black stamping on the word using the same text stamp, then a thick-ish coat of Bling. Then I grabbed a couple of paint brushes and randomly added colour to all of my diamond shapes. When that was all dried off I added some splatters of the pinks and bling on the diamonds and only the bling on the word. I LOVE how these look!


While that dried I added a little more texture to my page using a text stencil and some Bling Colour Paste, again in that kind of cross shape down and across the page. I left that to dry naturally as I didn’t want the paste to bubble as it dried.


Time to assemble! I added in some cheese cloth behind my “diamond” word, added some tiny alpha stickers and built my quote. I only ended up using 2 of the diamonds I created – one of the little ones and a medium but love how it looks!


My very final touch was a few splatters of Bling Colour Shimmer Cube and Roadbase Colour Spray! And my page was done!


It was so fun just playing and adding colour and not really having an idea of what or where I was going when I started!

Here are a couple more close ups of some of some of the details



Oh, how I love that Bling Colour Paste, it dries so gloriously gold and shimmery and just beautiful!!

If you haven’t done it for a while grab some random products and have a play! And why not participate in the brand new challenges we have starting this month! 

This month’s is a fun and easy one


I’ll be sharing my take on the challenge later in the month 😉 For now here is the link to the FB group if you are not already a member so you can load up your take on the challenge!

Here is the process video if you’d like to see this art journal page come together


Thanks for stopping by and happy creating!!
