A bit of this and a bit of that….

Hello there and happy 2016!! I hope this brand new year is being good to you so far and that you all had a joyous and love filled Christmas!

I am here today sharing a couple of non-DD projects that I neglected to share pre-Christmas. I had the craziest 10 or so days ever and have fallen behind in everything but all my photo’s are printed and in our DD album!

But for now I will share the frame I made for my lucky winner over on my FB page To The Stars and Back and also a 12×12 layout I made as part of my term on the Dusty Attic DT while they sponsored the challenge over at Scrap Around the World in December.

First up here is the finished coloured fairy as a refresher that I popped into a frame ๐Ÿ™‚

And the finished product ๐Ÿ™‚

As you can see I kept it pretty simple so that my little fairy stole the show ๐Ÿ˜‰ That paper in the background is actually a piece of patterned paper from a 6×6 paper stack, perfectly matched! A doily and some little resin stars ๐Ÿ™‚ Rosalee loved it and I believe it was going to her grand daughter so I hope she too loves it!!

And onto my 2nd share for this post – a 12×12 layout I created using a photo from our wedding vow renewal in April last year ๐Ÿ™‚

I found the #happy range by Websters Pages AGES ago and KNEW that I would want to use it to scrap some of these photos so I have used that as the background layer, added in some floral pieces from one of the Maggie Holmes floral ephemera packs and then used a Dusty Attic chippy for the title, a frame, an XOXO piece and also a little row of hearts. Oh, and that gorgeous ย potion bottle! The glitter is Stampin Up gold glass glitter and I LOVE how it turned out! The potion bottle was coated in white (as was the mini frame) and then I water coloured the leaves and cork.

A close up of the detail in the middle of the page – I am really so happy with how this turned out and can’t wait to make some more layout’s using both this range and those photos!!

And, finally, a close up of the title and the potion jar!

I hope you have liked seeing these projects and I hope to be back very soon with another post!!

Happy scrapping!

I’ve lost my mojo!!

Hi there lovely followers!

As the title of this post suggests I have lost my mojo! I am hoping to find it again by way of a little give away!!

As lots of you are aware I have a passion for colouring and my medium of choice so far has been copics. I have completed a couple of classes over at Kit and Clowder (if you haven’t yet checked them out and want to learn how to colour I cannot recommend Alyce’s classes highly enough!!) and after I completed my clothing class I coloured up one of the very 1st stamps I coloured again and here is the finished image!

This gorgeous stamp is created by Sylvia Zet for Wee stamps and if you want a rubber stamp you can find her here.

And just for comparison here is my before photo taken in late 2012 next to my current ๐Ÿ™‚

I am so excited in the difference and so proud of myself!ย 

So, head on over to my FB page To The Stars and Back, find the pinned post and follow the instructions – I want to know what you’d like to see her made into – and I will pick a random winner next Tuesday 03.11.2015 and announce on my FB page!

Thanks so much for stopping by and good luck if you decide to enter!
