Weekend layout

A beach layout of myself and my baby girl Remy. I bought a new template with tiny crosses on it, so I did blue texture paste on the whole 12x12cardstock. It turned out so cute. Whilst rummaging through my stash of embellishments I found the piece of cardstock with the fish stamped on it. I had been experimenting using watercolour paints with stamps and kept it. I liked the colours together with this layout and it added a bit of whimsy.

Sequins in these colours just remind me of the shimmery blue sea, and there were a few epoxy dots in the ocean colours that I have added.

Those cute blue vintage buttons were from an old christmas ephemera pack from October Afternoon, with a bit of string tied in the middles.

a very fast layout


I have been making everything in shades of blue and green lately, and heres a quick layout I recently created. Some white gesso on a heavily patterned background seemed to work well, some Dylusions sprays then some Heidi Swap colorshine sprays, so pretty with their iridescent particles. I’ve used some Kaisercraft collectables and die release paper that I just love adding to layouts and cards (it’s the black and white script paper at the back of the photo).



Dreamcatchers today


I made this dreamcatcher a while back now and I still love it. It hangs in our lounge room and was the first one I made. The girls all made one each for their bedrooms and we had a lot of fun choosing colour schemes and trinkets to go on them. I have since made a few others, mostly for other people and presents.IMG_2238IMG_2241

This blue one is another favourite. I used lots of torn strips of vintage sheets and fabric scraps, ribbon, lace and a hand dyed doily for the centre. I wrapped a hoop with torn sheets and used white bakers twine to weave it onto the hoop, then its just a matter of choosing all the ribbons and lace and tying them on. I mostly decorated with large flowers using a hot glue gun.



This is the final layout using green, black & white….and red. I tried this layout with 23 different photos before I chose the final one, I will share those other photos and layouts soon, as I found it really interesting that these colours (without the red) are very versatile. Stay tuned…..
