STENCILLING FUN #1

Good morning friends 
Just recently I joined a collaboration with Stencilgirl.com,
each week for 16 weeks we will receive a new prompt to inspire us
to create an art journal page.
HMMMM .. 
took me right out of my comfort zone 
I admire mixed media & have dabbled a little so figured I should dive into the deep end 
so dive I did .. 
PROMPT #1
I gathered together my supplies 
Stencil girl stencils
13@rts acrylic paints
gesso
posca pen
sharpie pen
& wet ones
MY TAKE

I hope you like my attempt

it was a very good price 
$3.00 bargain !!!!

I glued four pages together then tore out seven to allow room for added embellishments 
then painted all pages with gesso

I covered the book with selected papers , then the spine , trimming the join with cream lace & pink ribbon, then added a coloured metal butterfly


inside cover & facing page have random stamping,  a sticker frame from my stash
& a fussy cut butterfly 

paper, lace, doilies, ribbon, beads & fussy cut butterflies
"TURN YOUR CANT'S INTO CANS & DREAMS INTO PLANS'

Fussy cut hydrangeas, doilies, mesh ribbon, beads & tied bow with tails

 Papers, scrap of Valencia lace, cream ribbon & fussy cut flowers
'EVERYTHING YOU CAN IMAGINE IS REAL'
Striped paper, fussy cut lavender, beads, ribbon, laces & muslin

TWINKLING CHRISTMAS CARDS

Hello Friends,
I needed a supply of Christmas cards so my 
range filled the bill beautifully 
I created 16 cards which I have paired in a frame
to save on an extra extra long blog post ...
all my cards are 14.5cm square & by adding 
some bling, embossed papers, flowers lace & pretty ribbons 
it makes them all a little bit individual 













I found these papers so versatile & enjoyed fussy cutting the ephemera 
my hope is you are inspired to create some cards to share 
wishing you a safe happy & blessed Christmas 
Happy Scrapping

CHRISTMAS FRAME

hello friends
 have been playing in my craft room with the gorgeous 
Christmas papers from MEGS GARDEN 
this range is titled 
'Twinkling Christmas' 
to go with the theme I made a reverse canvas 
& added miniature fairy lights
It was fun creating something a little different 


I made the frame with texture paste through a stencil 
then painted with gesso & 
added some jacaranda blue mixed paint to highlight the texture 
fussy cut many elements from the ephemera sheets & papers & adhered them to chipboard to give them strength .. 
the Christmas trees are from my stash. 
Adhered the background paper & all trims then added the lights.

Flowers, flourishes, silver leaves & sparkles completed the scene
