Mojo Monday Inspiration Book...


Hi all...

I wanted to show you all the Journal I made for Mum for her birthday featuring the wonderful Mojo Monday card Sketches to give her inspiration for her card making... If you have never heard of Mojo Monday... check it out!!! Awesome site filled with lots of inspirational 'Mojo'...

I made  the cover using all sorts of layered yummies, painted Gesso on the whole thing and coloured it with distress inks and powders... loved making this!!! On the last page is an envelope filled with 'Happy Birthday' sentiments cut out in heaps of different fonts to give her a head start...











Till next time...

Pop Up Flower...



Morning all...

I wanted to share  the card I made my Mum for her Birthday on the weekend... a Pop Up Flower card... I saw quite a few tutorials on You Tube showing the 'shading' done with felt tip markers... I decided to take it a step further and used Stampin' Up! Botanicals Just for You stamps, markers and shading using sponges instead and added some leaves... the mind boggles on how many different versions you could do with this technique!







Hope you had an awesome Birthday Mum... Love you!
Well that's it for now...

Till next time,

Birds of a Feather...



Hi all...
its been a while since I last popped in to say hello... I have been busy painting, playing and doing 'yummy' things in my studio... so I thought it was time to start sharing some of the bits I have been creating....

These little 'Feathered' watercolour pics were done using our new Dr. Ph Martin Hydrus liquid Watercolours... LOVE these!!! Very intense and awesome to use... so I spent the afternoon painting... when I get around to it I will turn them all into cards...





















Well... that's it for now...
More coming soon...

Verdant...


Mornin' all..

Day off from work today so lots of creative loveliness has already occurred... life does not get better than that!! I'm hoping to continue into the afternoon... glass of red in hand... may be a Cheezel or two... cracker & dip... mmm.... life is hard!!

Anyway... I just wanted to share the next Mandala installment... 'Verdant'... this was done using a mix of Bombay Ink, Global High Flow Acrylics, Alcohol & Posca Markers on a 24" x 24" Canvas... this is how it all began...








I am in the middle of a few more... they are getting bigger... and soooo much more labor intensive but heaps of fun...

Till next time,
