This is the start of an inspiration patch, where I hope that fellow scrappers and creators will come and find some inspiration, or even leave some inspiration for me.

Thinking of You - Large Tag

Hello Everyone

Of after 5 weeks of no internet and a telephone line, I am finally back on the air.
I am sooo pleased! It really was becoming rather a hassle.

Anyways, today I have a large tag to share with you.

I used normal distress inks and paints on this tag.

I treated the beautiful chippie to some gesso and all purpose ink.
You'll see the detail here below.

I did big inky splatters, over the stencilled dots and stamping on the background.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
I hope you have a fabulous Friday and weekend! ;-)

Cheers for now

General Tag

Hello Everyone

I am on a "tagging" mission again, at the moment and so I hope I don't bore you with another tag today! ;-)

The inspiration for this tag was some really pretty papers from a free insert in a magazine.

So here it is.

I love the lavender chippie too, this was certainly something that I wanted to add and use.

Sometimes I can be a real scrooge when it comes to pretty papers.
I am almost afraid to cut them up and use them. I feel that if I don't do them justice, that it would be an absolute crime! LOL...maybe I am a little crazy!!!! ;-)

Anyways, I hope I do these papers justice! ;-)

Thanks again for stopping by!
Thanks also for "tagging" me again!
Have a super day!

General Tag - Distress Oxides

Hello Everyone

I hope that your week has started off really well.

I was playing with my Distress Oxides again and came up with this little tag.

I also used the oxides to colour the flowers. I love the chalky, soft finish that it gives.

I love the simplicity of this tag.

So what have you created with your Oxides today?

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a terrific Tuesday.

Captured Moments - Penelope Dee Photogenic

Hello Everyone

I am so blessed to be an ambassador for Penelope Dee.
I so love the products and I love that a local manufacturer is producing such quality! ;-)

So I created a mixed media, boy layout with their newest collection, Photogenic.

I did some black gesso stencilling and some stam;ping for the background.

I also used the gorgeous Sizzix Bright Bubbles die-cut.


Here are some close-ups.

I also had some enamel dots that I have had for ages, which finally found their place and I was so pleased I could use them on this boy page.

This boy is getting so tall and growing so quickly, it is actually scary! ;-)

Today we also had a massive thunderstorm and all I can say is "Thank You Lord" for the beautiful rain. We really were in need of rain and with the rain over the weekend too, the garden and the grass are just flourishing.

I hope you had a lovely Monday!
Thanks so much for popping in, I really do appreciate it so.

Take care for now.

Mixed Media Tag - Distress Oxides

Hello Everyone

My internet and telephone line is still off.  It is going on 4 weeks now.
It is really not funny anymore and I sure hope that this week it will be resolved.

I hope that you have been having a great weekend and that you got some time to create.
I got some great crafty time and have a mixed media tag to share.

I absolutely adore my distress oxides and really loved this spotty background that I created, on some old music paper.  I used Broken China and Wilted Violet.
I also coloured the delicate chipboard piece with Broken China too.

I then added some leaf diecuts and my own handmade flower.
This little layered flower is just the perfeect touch. LOL

Lastly I used a rub-on that I had for ages and gave this general tag a little title.

Have you played with distress oxides?
I promise you they are amazing and you will not be able to put them down! ;-)

I hope you have a super evening!
Cheers for now!
