Always challenge yourself :-)

Last weekend DS2 had a 12th birthday sleepover party with 4 mates in the shed.
With the excuse of supervising the ruckus I got some extra time
in my art room (also in the shed) :-D
So.... I had a play with the most recent One Little Word challenge
(one of my favourites) - Always


I love the effect of the inkpads with the chevron TCW template
(Chunky Chevron - TCW322)
combined with my new Kaisercraft dictionary stamp,
and the colours went so nicely with my new washi tapes from
Lowri at The Paper Vine.
I cut the title with my MM Slice using the Music & Dance card,
and used a Carl punch for the leaves.

Thanks so much for dropping by
and for your lovely comments, they make my day :-)

Love is in the Air

I recently won a lovely prize from 7 Dots Studio,
a pack of their new range called 'Love is in the Air',
full of soft pastels with a hint of distressed type patterns.
I'm not much of a pastel gal but this is really pretty!
Here are the two pages I have done so far...
Both things I love, in honour of Valentine's Day today :-)


The background on the next page was done with a TCW template 
and a mix of leftover light brown/yellow mists.
When my mists are getting too low to spray properly
I pour them into each other and mix similar colours,
it makes them go that little bit further.

You can keep up with new releases and what people are doing with their papers 

Thanks so much for dropping by.

SWAT with texture

Are you going to play at Sketches with a Twist this month?
It's a gorgeous sketch designed by Julianne McKenna-De Lumen 
and the twist is 'texture paste'


This is my page, I flipped and turned the sketch. 
The chevron is done with texture paste and a TCW stencil
then misted while still wet. For the splats I used Tim Holtz
distress stain -tarnished brass, it's awesome!
The picture I took when I was in Darwin last year
my first sunset over the ocean, so beautiful!
So come along and play with us,
check out the blog for some DT inspiration.
