And just to share with you all today a layout I created last month for MHC.  Lots of experimenting on this layout using water colour paints and Shimmerz.  Had so much fun, so I will be trying it again for sure!
Now I very rarely use white cardstock as a background, but I have to admit the colours came up really great with a crisp background.

Thanks so much for popping by, hope you are all well and enjoying your week so far :))

Just Because....

Hello all :))

Well with DH away this week on a deep sea fishing trip, I have scrapped up a storm! And what better way to start by doing a 'just because' page.  Is it me or is there anyone else, that tends to sit on papers for ages before using them...?? Not sure why...hmmmm...Anyway these gorgeous My Minds Eye papers have been sitting around for a while now begging me to use them...so I just decided to get stuck in and get creative, play around and experiment with the hexagon trend!

Got out the paints again as well as washi tape...loving them both all over again! And it you haven't worked it out by now my love affair with Shimmerz products.  There isn't a layout or project I don't do that hasn't got some Shimmerz on it. Their products are so versatile....love love love :))

Outlining my hexagons with Shimmerz...and snuck in some gorgeous Hambly (hexagon overlay)...gosh I am going to miss them!

Found my little star punch again and love the scattered stars....

And dug through my Purple Pumpkin button stash and found this super cute owl button...

Off to do some more scrapping :))
Can't wait to have some yummy fresh reef fish over the weekend!!

Thanks for visiting!

All of my Dreams....

Hello to you all!
Back today to show you, as promised, another project I was so lucky to do last month using a Twiddleybitz Printer Tray, Manor House Creations flowers and The ScrapCake papers.

"All of my Dreams"

LOVE this colour combination and the ScrapCake papers, One Moment in Time, were perfect for lots of fussy cutting! I used the Tim Holtz film like ribbon and tucked and twirled to give it a dramatic effect.

The little brown flowers were altered with some gold glimmermist to add some extra depth. The tray and all the other chipboard pieces have been altered with lots of Shimmerz products.

Hope you all have a wonderful day! Thanks so much for stopping by :))
