PROJECT LIFE: 20 - 15 complete


I am so excited to say that I have finished my Project Life album for 20 - 15.
This is the third year in a row that I have finished and not one bit sorry.
The memories in this album are so precious to me and i know if i didn't have it documented i am sure i would forget a lot of it.

Here are the last few weeks,

Stay tuned to see what I am up doing for 20-16.

Mixed Media: Short Stakz


School holidays these last 6 weeks, has not allowed me much of an opportunity to be creative.  But I know in the near future that they will change, with 2 boys starting school next week.
I am bond to need a distraction and some tissue box or two!

Anyways, I have been having a little play with the new shimmerz short stakz. I just love how they are on special mixed media paper, makes it so easy and super fun to use.

All I simply did was use a water colour brush, but not to much water. If you use a lot of water you will find that it runs and can't stay within the lines.
I used shimmerz pots first. Once that dried I used creameez over the top to layer my colour and create a tonez affect.

I just played and fiddle and this is water I came up with. I am going to pop it into my project life spread!

Products used:  shimmerz -Tickle me turquoise/golden wheat/magenta.
                          Creameez- boggie  boardin' blue/ piggy pink/daffodil

I hope you can get your hands on some this absolutely amazing stakz soon!

MIXED MEDIA: Joy canvas


Back in this post here, I mentioned about creating some little canvas for my lounge room a little while back,
I am still working on them.
This another little one that will sit alongside my  'true happiness'  and 'five' canvas.


I started over with my canvas covered in gesso, I then used my favorite colored colouringz sprays, Jeni B Bleu and Well blow me down. I added a little spray of water to allow the colors to move about and drip. I then add a few splatters with the nozzle.

I then applied some Texturez in Patina colour with an old card and some Dazzlerz, Spun sugar with a stencil and an old card.

Then I just add my layers in with paper and lots of Prima flowers and resin.
Then my set of little canvas are complete!

Daily December: Completed album


Happy New year my readers!
It has certainly been a busy time here and still is.  Not a lot of messy happy fun in the studio at the moment. School break means lots of family time.

I have managed to finish off my Daily December and wanted to share it with you.
