Something to share......

Just because:):) 

I have been so busy creating in the last few weeks but can't share any of it just yet!!  So the other night I felt I had to create something just for me:)  I went totally crazy with product again, Pink Paislee, Sass, Hambly, Prima, Websters........


I really love the end result of this one......the colours......yummo!

Some closies:

The most recent of my gorgeous 3...........

A special palette #75

A very special palette this week at The Color Room.  The lovely Lydell and Emma have put this gorgeous kit together featuring the most beautiful images.  Pop over here to check it out and have a play.  Now I didn't do the digital version......I have never done a digi layout and honestly have no idea where to start (I don't even think I downloaded the kit!!)  But I just adored these images so much I just had to print them onto white photo paper.  I can definately say I had Ingvild's gorgeous, gorgeous style in my mind when I created this:):)

My sweet little Mason,  I did try to focus a bit more of the blue and brownish tones to make it a wee bit more "boyish" but hey, boys (especially bubba boys) look pretty cute in purple too:)

"4 Weeks New"

Of course now some closeups:

The clock face here is a new Prima mirrored piece, these mirrored pieces are so beautiful and easy to work with!!  I also featured a mirrored frame at the top left of the piccy!  All the blooms are obviously Prima too ;)

Look at these adorable little toes and fingers:) 

The angel wings are from Melissa Frances......just devine and finish off this project:)

Here is the palette, I would love to see what you create:)

YAY!!  It's the weekend here.......hope you all have a great one too!

Love to you all xo

ps.....I am approaching my 200th blog post soon and have a couple of special ideas up my sleeve, hope you come back and visit me:)

*Prima* PPP, BAP and CHA layout.

Prima's Sept PPP was definately a challenge for me.......brown is so not my colour but I thought I would have a go, little Mason's piccie inspired me!  Hope you have a go too:)

Mason's first touch of the sand at 10 weeks old:)

"His First Touch"

Some closeups:

and here is the Build a page sketch for Sept......

My Gracie layout I created for CHA using the North Country line.  Loving these colours together, so fresh!!  Here's the brick mask again.  Lots of gorgeous things on here to match my cutie pie niece:)


Closeups once again....resin, chipboard, vines......

So much going on atm, so much scrapping to get done this month.  My baby has now turned 3 months and weighs a chubba 6.7kg.  My boys are still take new piccies of them soon.  Coop's LOVES kindy (had pj day today) and I can't believe his 3rd term is nearly over.  His preppy forms are in:(  I hope this next term slows down, I don't think I am ready for a big school boy!!  In fact, I think I said that about him starting kindy and it has been the best year, he's learnt so so much!

Okay, I better get off here and start some dinner.

Thankyou so much for playing along in the Prima/TA blog hop and for leaving me such lovely comments....I enjoyed reading everyone of them:)

Welcome to the Prima/Tattered Angels Blog Hop!!!

Hi everyone, I hope you are all having a fantastic week!  Spring is finally here in Australia....woo hoo!
For the month of September Tattered Angels and Prima are teaming up together:)  As you all know I absolutely adore Prima and I never create a layout without using TA mists, so working with them together is always so much fun:)  On the 15th September a winner will be announced for this gorgeous prize below.   Be sure to check out the Prima blog HERE for all the details to win this prize.

Also be sure to check out the blogs of the DT.  They have created some gorgeous projects using these 2 amazing products together.  You will definately be inspired:)

Now, I would love to share with you a canvas I made for a friend of a friend:) 



I started with my background, being for a boy, I thought stars would be perfect.  I have a couple of star shapes (which I just cut myself from chipboard)......I placed them randomly over my canvas and sprayed my little heart out with TA Glimmermist in colours - Turquoise Blue, Jazz Blue, Lime Twist and Cinder.  With the excess left on the star I just flick it back onto the canvas:)  I then added more art mediums, gesso and inks.

I then teared Prima papers from both Alla Prima and Pixie Glen ranges making a background layer for the picture.  I then used a Prima brick mask and applied Gesso and misted a little bit more:)


Next I started to place down my flowers, I must admit I did have them a different way and it just wasn't working for me so I took it all off and started again (hence the reason I never glue anything down straight away).  My fave Prima products would have to be the vines.....I love working with them and they are always a starting point for my flower clusters.  When I don't have any on hand to work with I do find it much more difficult for some reason.


Lastly I added the title, more Gesso to soften the flowers and loads of gorgeous crystals:)  To create the title I just covered chipboard letters with some more Prima pp and just sprayed the bottom of the letter with more Glimmermist.
