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.

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.
