Do You Have a Favourite Shape?

I never knew that I had a favourite shape but it seems that I do.

When I am working with circles I go to my happy place and something comes out the other side that I love. What is your favourite shape?

Below is an Art Journal page that I created for my turn today on Off The Rails Scrapbooking. If you would like to follow my process and how I created it please follow the link (here).

Watercolour Background

Have you ever created a background that you loved so much that you had no idea what to embellish it with. Well that is what happened with this card that I designed for the new challenge at Off The Rails Scrapbooking pop on over to the blog to see what the rest of the talented design team created.

The challenge was to use the colours from a mood palette. I found this extremely challenging as it was a mix of colours that I would not normally put together. But it works.

For this card I used all Stampin' Up products :

Inks - So Saffron, Blackberry Bliss, Tangerine Tango, Wild Wasabi and Hello Honey
Stamps - Itty Bitty Banners, Four Feathers and Off The Grid
Punch - Bitty Butterfly.

Thank you for coming past and Happy Creating.

Dollie, a Paper Flower and A Heart

What does a dollie, a paper flower, and a chipboard heart all have in common? 
They are on a new page of my journal.

To find out how I went from here 
to here pop on over to Off The Rails Scrapbooking

The quote I used is a little hard to read but it says

'Keep some room in your heart for the unimaginable'

You still have 4 days to enter into the current challenge on the blog

Dont Follow - Leave a Trail

It was my turn to share on Off The Rails Scrapbbooking blog today. Please pop on over to see what other projects that the amazingly talented Design Team has created. Every day there is something new.

Sometimes things just come together without much thought and this is one of those times. Using my Golden Fluid Acrylics, left over pieces from previous projects and my Faber Castell Pitt Pens I created a new page for my Art Journal.

Online Classes

I have always wanted to take part in an online class but deciding which one was always the problem until about 4 weeks ago. I was flicking through my account on twitter when I saw a tweet from Kelly Rae Roberts. This tweet caught my eye not only because it was from Kelly Rae Roberts who I have been following for a few years now, but because she was tweeting about an online course. It wasn't long before I had completed sign up for Hello Soul Hello Mixed Mantras. I was all ready to go but I had to wait a few days before the class was live. So what do you do when you are waiting? Go shopping and buy supplies of course.

Finally the day arrived that I could access the class, there and then my journey began. The fun, the playing, the getting messy and letting go is something that I just cannot get enough of.

I would like to share with you a piece of art that I have created since I began class. My start to finish I knew what it was going to be my hands did not falter and I did not think about it, it just flowed.

Before starting the course with Kelly Rae Roberts I would never have believed that I was capable of creating something like this. Thank you Kelly Rae

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.
