Project life.......

Hello!!!
 
I thought I would share with you my very first Project Life style spread.  I have been wanting to do it for over 12 months now, but never knew where to start.  I still had no idea when I started all I knew was I just needed to start somewhere!  I'll never do the week by week thing but every now and then I hope to do more like this....well I do have an album to fill now :)
 
I hope you like, it was certainly difficult trying not to layer too much!
 
 
 
 



Some closeups -

Fun and Bright with some of my Favourite Shimmerz products!!

Hello!  Happy Monday :)
 
I have a new layout to share featuring some of my very favourite Shimmerz colours.   I just love bright, fun colours, you will rarely see me create with brown or red.  When I purchase papers and embellishments they always seem to mix in fantastic with the turquoise, lime, pink, coral colours that I love.
 
 
Shimmerz  products used :
 
Coloringz in Don't Citron Me, Pink Stiletto, Night Moves and Well Blue Me down
Inklingz in Blue My Mind
 
 
 
 
"Memory"
 
 
 
 





I grabbed my favourite pie chart stencil and after applying Modelling Paste to it I went crazy with my Coloringz sprays.  I just love how the colours mix together, anything goes really.....just experiment!!
 
 
 














After adding all of my embellishments, I used a fine paintbrush and water to add the Blue My Mind Inklingz.   I ran it down the page, under and close to those embellishments.
 
 
 








Lots of flickers with the nozzle off too!
 
 
 







Not even my flowers are safe from the spray.  I love adding it to the middle of the roses to give it more colour.  I did this by holding the spray really close making sure I only got the centre section.










 
 
 
 
I hope you liked this one today.  Lots of fun to create :)
 
Have a wonderful day xxxx

Popsicles and Pretty Little Studio

Hello!!
 
I have another new creation up on the Pretty Little Studio BLOG this week.
 
 
  It’s so nice to create something really girly for a change.  So I pulled out some pink items I had in my stash.  I picked some other colours from my little subjects swimming outfit and added them in too.  I also have a thing for black and white at the moment and just love the contrast of the striped Wax Flower paper.  I picked out the little girl in the yellow dress from the Lemon Peel Journaling set and layered lots of little flags around also.   Added a splash of gold with the stickers and some mist to finish off.
 
 
 
 "Popsicles"

Pineapple Inspiration

 
Hi there!!
 
I have another Pretty Little Studio Project to share today.
 
I started out with plain white cardstock and I painted a watercolour Pineapple and continued on the mixed media throughout the page.  I used a mixture of collections and patterned paper for the layers in this creation.   I used a journaling card from the older collection Sandcastle.  I just added a little colour to the sketch of the kids and the kites.   I love using the stickers and phrase strips, they tell a story all by themselves.
 
 
 
 
"Enjoy Life"
 
 
 




Pretty Little Studio Products:
Neapolitan Collection: Butter Pecan Paper, Neapolitan Root Beer Float Stickers
Nature Walk Collection: Tree Root Paper
Marigold Collection: Blue Bells/Hazel/Morning Glory Paper, Marigold Tabs Clematis, Marigold Cutouts Wisteria Word Flags
Sandcastle Collection: Journaling Fly a Kite 3 x 4 cards
Treasure Island Collection: Sand Dune Note Strips
 




























 
Here is the original pineapple pin I drew inspiration from :)

"Swim"

 Hello!! 
 
I have another new Pretty Little Studio creation to share today.
 
 
Over here in Australia we are in the midst of our Winter and I would give anything to take me back to Summer!!  So I thought I would create something full of sunshine and happiness!  I have created with the Treasure Island once again but this time opting for the rainbows, yellow and red papers.  I love how this collection has so many colours in it to create any combination you want.
 
 
PLS Products Used:
  • Treasure Island Paper: Jewel Archipelago, Magic Island, Ship Deck, Clear castaway Black
  • Treasure Island Embellishments: Cutouts Mini Words Pirates Life, Cutouts Wild Ride Phrase Strips, Die Cuts Arrow Adventure, Die Cuts Out to Sea Clouds, Flair Happy Journey, Garland Overboard Paper Ribbons, Journaling Explorer Stencil 3 x 4 Cards, Journaling Set Sail 3 x 4, Vintage Die-cut Hugo
    Stickers Gold Treasure Flags, Stickers Treasure words, Tab Treasure Map
 
 
"Swim"
 
 

 
 




I still love those stencil journaling cards, you can add anything to them as I have here with some water colour and doodling.   I even used the anchor piece that was cut out from another card.
 
 
 




 
 
The Mini Words an Phrase Strips are awesome to add to a skewer stick to make little flags as I have done here.
 








Plus the too cute little boy in the boat die cut (Hugo)……ahhh, so adorable!!!
