Almond Blossom by Vincent Van Gogh.....

..... was the challenge over at Artastic. I did this 8x8 canvas as a response to some stuff that's been going on here of late....
I have used Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist, Glam and Glaze with a touch of Tim Holtz Distress Stain and a Crafters Workshop template.
It says - In nature there are neither rewards or punishments - there are consequences.

He Rox!

The challenge over at Scrap the Boys this month was to use household/family ephemera on your layout, I went with some stones from around the yard to put on this page of Ed and his rock collection. I took the opportunity to use up some scraps too and have Glimmer Mist-ed the Tim Holtz pp as a background.

Thanks so much for dropping by :-)

PI Blog Hop

Welcome to the Paper Issues Blog Hop :-D

Read right to the bottom of this post for a fabulous giveaway of some of my favourite things!
The theme is Tree-huggers so I thought I'd share with you a couple of projects on wood. This first one was done recently for the Tattered Angels blog, A Kaisercraft wood frame with lots of lovely layers for the background. I have used a variety of leftover patterned papers, burlap from Canvas Corp, and findings from Tim Holtz, Kaisercraft, 7Gypsies, Pink Paislee, and Prima, all covered with lashings of Tattered Angels Glimmer Glam.

The next one is from a while back when we did a wood theme on the Tattered Angels blog. I used Glimmer Mist, Glaze, and Glam to paint this sweet little cabinet that a friend gave me, it has since been auctioned to raise money for Queensland Flood Relief.

 And because I'm really a scrapbooker at heart and don't want to leave a post without a page, here's one using the new Bush Christmas foiled paper from Alison Ellis Design.

If you made it this far here's your reward. I have gathered together some of my favourite crafty things, papers, a Crafters Workshop Template, a Prima Mistable canvas sheet, and of course a bottle of Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in one of my absolute favourite shades. All you have to do is be a follower of my blog and leave me a comment to let me know you visited and at the end of the bloghop a random person will win it all, yay!

 Now head on over and visit Amy, the next stop on the hop!

Or go have a peek at what Cassie has in the ETSY shop. Use the coupon HOP25 at checkout to get a full 25% discount all the way through Sunday :-D
