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.

Art is my Happy - Art Journal Page

Hello Everyone

I hope that you are having a super week.

I have a few art journals now and one is a journal with black paper.
I love that it pushes me to really try different things and also work with colours and mediums that I wouldn't normally work with.

I created an "Art is my Happy" page.


I used a lot of gesso and shimmery paints on the backgrounnd.
I also used some of my favourite stamps.

The papers and bits are from the Teresa Collins "You are my Happy" collection.

Here are some close-ups.



This page is all about my happy place...my chill time...my relaxation...
my creativity and how happy it make me! ;-)

I don't believe that it is ever something that I will not be doing!
It's soooo good for my soul.

Thanks for stopping by!
I hope you have a super and happy day!

Always Be Fragrant Art Journal Page - Graphic 45 Botanical Tea

Hello Everyone

So nice to just chill on a Sturday morning and just have a little bit of time to work on the pc and add a post here! ;-)

In the week I finished an art journal page, which I absolutely love.
The background is all watercolour effects and stamping, which is just what I so love playing with.

So here's the page.


I used Prima stamps and some 49 and Market stamps for the background.
Then I fussy cut some of my favourite Botanical Tea bits, from Graphic 45.

I just love the soft colours and feel of this page.


The watercolour effects always give a soft and blended feel to any background.


I love Roses and always have my nose in them to see if they smell. LOL


I love the sentiment too...Always be Fragrant...

Thanks so much for popping past my blog today!
I hope you have a super and creative Saturday!

ClipBoard - Penelope Dee Tea Time

Hello Everyone
 
I hope that 2017 is treating you well and that it's been a really good start to a really great year! ;-)
 
I am sharing a project today that I made months ago, for a class and just have not had time to share.
It's a clipboard for 2017.
 
The photo's are not so great, as they were taken with my phone, but I think you will get the idea.
 
 

 
 
I used the gorgeous Tea Time Collection from Penelope Dee.
 
I created a patchwork design for the background.
 
 
 
I did some crackle paste stencilling, along with some distress ink stencilling too.
 
 
 
It has a French Country feel to it, which I absolutely love.
 
I am yet to get this clipboard back from my teaching shop but it will be going up on my scrapbook table at home.
 
Thanks so much for stopping by!
I really do appreciate the visits.
Have a super day!
