Travel Layouts

Hi everyone,

The upcoming Scrap Affairs magazine will be having a travel theme and everyone has been invited to submit their layouts for the possibility of appearing in the mag.  Here are three which I worked on yesterday and have subsequently sent on:




Right now I’m heading straight back to my art room to work with a glorious range from Fabscraps!

Never A Dull Moment | CSI

Hello there,

I have to say that I absolutely LOVED working on the latest case over at CSI.  The colour palette is delicious – from deep black and red, to ice-cream pastel pink and blue!

Here is what I put together, using the inspiration from CSI:

Scheme : all there

Evidence : polka dots, hearts, flowers, texture paste, stamps

Testimony : document a celebration

I LOVE a dress up party.  I will always, always go to the greatest of efforts to dress up.  My brother had a Rock-type party theme earlier this year for his birthday; and my partner and I decided to go as Disco King and Queen.  We both donned matching purple outfits (his was at least 4 sizes too small) and funky wigs.  It was a great evening with even greater people.  I LOVE that my partner goes to as much of an effort as I do, regardless of the outfit or how embarrassing it might be.  I LOVE that we can this much fun together.  There are many celebrations like this where we have dressed up – and I am CERTAIN that there will be many more to come!

We would absolutely LOVE it if you popped in to play along with us!  This is what the Case File looks like:

Seriously though… what’s NOT to love???

Hello Crazy | CSI DT

This next LO was done for Case File 239 over at CSI – as with all our beginning of the month challenges, this one includes a sketch by The Nifty Pixel, designed exclusively for CSI.  Scroll down for more details on how you can play along with us!

And here is what I did:

Scheme : all there

Evidence : flowers / leaves, wood (paper print), circles

Testimony : song title / lyrics as inspiration

She drives me CAH-RAZY!  And not in a bad way!  Always up to something.  Always a funny little quip.  Always photo bombing in the worst kind of way – or pulling ridiculous faces for selfies.  She drives me crazy, and I can’t help myself (laughing!!).  She brings SO much light into my life!

We would LOVE to have you play along!  Here is the direct link to this challenge and this is what it looks like:

Art Journal, Mix It Up Challenge DT

Mermaid Wishes | MIUCB

Hello there,

Today I am sharing an art journal page I created for the October challenge over at Mix It Up Challenge blog.  For this month, the theme is Anything Goes + Watercolour.

I decided to haul out my all-time favourite Distress Oxides to create an under-water page, featuring mermaids, sea horses, starfish and adorable fishes.

I stamped all my designs onto some watercolour paper – alternating between stamping and clear embossing; and stamping using the Distress Oxides.  Those which were stamped and embossed, I then brushed through some distress oxide watered down with my water mister.

Here is my art journal piece:
