layouts this month


I have had the calico house forever!!!! I actually had 2, one was spotty and I recently used it on another layout. This one finally got its day. I cut the 3 flying ducks out using my silhouette cameo machine, they represent the beswick ducks my grandparents had on their wall for as long as I can remember.



Love this layout of my lili, lots of old papers and bits and pieces.



Layout of Ella, I started out painting the background, and then added some texture paste, more paint, then Heidi Swapp paper and letters are ombre foiled.



page 11 art journal


Using some scrapbooking paper as my starting point….this paper was from Ruby Street when I lived in Cairns and first started scrapbooking. I love it a lot but it has to be used, and although I end up covering most of it, I know its there.IMG_5155

Some acrylic ink and white paint and lime green ink…..


Prussian Blue paint, Im not liking what this is looking like here and had to keep adding to it….


This is it so far, I really love all the crazy colours so I think I will leave it at that and do some journaling on it, just waiting for it to dry.

more art journal pages

Well actually just art at the moment, as Im patiently waiting for them to dry so I can journal on them. This is the hard part…waiting for it to dry.


This one turned out completely different to what I was expecting, its weird colours and strange paint strokes, must have been the mood tonight! I love it because its really interesting, so much going on here…back to work in the morning after 2 lovely weeks off with my girls.


I’m still working on this one, but it needs to dry before I can paint some more. I love the black on this, my stencil didn’t work, but I still like what happened here. Crazy pop of colour, love the pink and purple.

part 2 of art journaling class…

This is the 2nd part of Wilnas class I’m taking…..inkpads, loved it, love it!!!

This is the start of my 5th page…



I think this turned out really lovely, and now I have just photographed them and put them on here, I really love them all and am so pleased I bought this class, Thank you WILNA.


IMG_5143Next one is also using ink pads as a starting point, love this too. I laughed about Wilna saying each of her pages was her favourite but now I know…its hard to choose when they are all so pretty to look at. I have used the same illustration from Wilnas gorgeous collection, but I just loved them so much.


This is the 7th page, I think it needed some white space, but I chose to try something different, still very striking.


This is the 87th page of the ink pads section, and it was a weird combination, but I feel it turned out ok. Each one is so different….now to start on section 3 which is patterned paper…..


This is the start of the 9th page using patterned papers and Im loving it alot so far, the colours are crazy bright, I dont really like purple but this is gorgeous together, green is my favourite and the Liquitex inks in green are fabulous. I will finish this page tonight and hope to start the last 3 pages soon but I go back to work tomorrow and its hard to get art time in each day!

card making

I made this card for my sister, I have used one of the print and cut files from my art journaling class by Wilna Furstenberg 

Some gorgeous vintage trim that my sister has given me and also the lace.

Papers are from Kaisercraft, Cocoa Vanilla and tags from Crate Paper, Heidi Swapp gold colorshine and gold sequins.


Fish cards …I think my mum saved these fish illustrations from an old book, I have saved them because they were so lovely, finally used them on some cards and a layout.
