Weekend Getaway Projects

Hello again everyone, it's been a bit long-winded between blog posts I'm sorry. However I'm just back from a wonderful weekend in the Blue Mountains with my scrapping kindred spirits. I just want to quickly share with you a couple of the projects that I made over the weekend. The first is my entry for the challenge at More Than Words .  For my "recipe" I used Die cuts (skeleton leaves), Flair, Flowers and Mist and of course the word "Delight".

Here is how I cooked it up:

I love an Aqua and White colour combo. The flowers, sequined bow & arrow are from D-lish Scraps. The photo is a one of my DD & her partner on their recent trip to Thailand. The photo isn't perfect, but it captures their "delight" at travelling to foreign shores once again. 

Again I've included a pretty cluster using my die cut skeleton leaves - one of my favourite dies.

The other project I achieved over the weekend was a canvas that I've been wanting to do for a very long time.

The paint brush is an old one of my Dad's which I grabbed from him before he threw it out. It has some lovely bits of rust and calcium build-up on it so I've tried to reproduce that on the canvas. Thank you to Mary Bennetts for the Title inspiration, Lizzy Hill for her colour and texture guidance and Cheryl O'Brien for coming to the rescue with the perfect Mist. It was a real team effort :)
The background is stenciled with texure paste and coated with a thick layer of Tim Holtz Distress Crackle Paint.

I had so much fun creating this and I can't wait to do another.  I'll be back in the next few days with a few of the other projects from our weekend away.  Thanks for calling in xx

Well hello everyone and a huge hello to Spring! Of course with a new month comes a new and beautiful Kit from PAPER FLOURISH. This month's theme is Christmas....I know right! How can that be?!! But it must be faced and why not get your Christmas cards organised or create those overdue layouts from last Christmas before the new one is upon us. So to get you started I'm sharing with you what I've created with the wonderful Paper Flourish September Kit Club.

Lots of frosty blues and silvers in this Kit, which lends itself to more than just Christmas themed projects. You'll find the instructions to these projects and the designs of the other DT members in the Paper Flourish Kit Club September Magazine.


The little wooden snowflakes are just too cute!

Once again, Tracey has gone above and beyond to stock this Kit with so much product. You'll have enough for lots of cards for family and friends as well as your Christmas layouts and more.

Thanks for looking!
