Paint and Hessian

It was my turn to share on the blog at Off The Rails Scrapbooking and I wanted to try something that was different for me. This included using paints and hessian to create a mixed media card. My colour palette was chosen for its simplicity, as I didn't want my card to look too messy.


I might just have to find something else to create with the rest of the hessian, as it is quite effective as a background. Will have to put my thinking cap on.

Blue and Gold

Today is another reveal day on the blog at Off The Rails Scrapbooking. The theme this month is a stunning Mood Palette. 


Now with a mood palette you use what ever catches your eye. What stood out to me was the bright blue, gold and feathers, but I only ended up using the blue and gold.

For this challenge I combined two of my favourites things - cards and mixed media, and of course I had to put a butterfly in there somehow.



Please don't forget to pop past blog for more inspiration.

Die Cuts

How many of us have die cuts sitting around gathering dust. I will put up my hand and say that I have waaaaay too many. Which is lucky for me because the month the challenge at Scrap It with Attitude is all about using them.

While going through my stash I came across my favourite packet of Kaisercraft Collectables (which have not been used), Pickled Pear. Now I love this range which is why it was untouched because I didn't want to use it because it is a deleted range. But use it I did. I create a card that I am extremely happy with.

The Art of Journaling

I have always loved the idea of creating an Art journal but wondered where I would start. I didn't want a bound journal as I felt for me this was too restricting, so I brought some water colour paper (300 gsm). Next time I will buy smooth finish rather than the rough but it is all a learning curve.

The A4 sheets of paper I cut into 8x8 as I have an mdf album (which needs to be decorated) that I can use and the off cuts of the paper I will save and use for something else.

My next step was to rewatch a video tutorial that Fiona from the Off The Rails Scrapbooking Design Team created. I loved watching it the first, second and third time (click here for the video).

I finished the back ground a couple of days ago but then had no idea what to embellish it with. I had created an extremely busy background. Today I finally finished it off with 3 butterflies that I fussy cut out of some paper.

Here is my first Art Journal page.


Now it's time to go and watch some more videos for inspiration and get messy. Thank you for stopping by.

The Simple Joy of Card Making

When I first started creating items I turned my hand to card making and I loved it. I would stay up late most nights and then struggle to get to work on time the next morning, but I enjoyed it too much to not do it.

I have come a long way since my first card but I still enjoy the art of card making. I haven't created much at all this year there as been no joy or passion to do it, but last month I created 3 cards that I would like to share with you.




On all three I have used the new Stampin' Up 2014 - 2016 In Colour Collection. I have been using Stampin' Up products for a few years. Late last year I signed up and became a demonstrator so if you would like more info please leave me a comment.

Canvas Wall Art

Sometimes your creative side has to take a back seat to your responsibilities. I have not created much this year but I did have the pleasure of creating a couple of canvases for Mother's Day.

The mother of the two children (who are very cute by the way) gave me two photos of each child and asked me to create one for her, as she was going to spoil herself and one for her Mum.

I had never created a canvas let alone two with photos in it, but I think I did quite well
