Believe In The Magic Of Christmas

Hey there from a rather hot Cape Town! Today I’m sharing the layout I created for the December challenge that is up on the More Than Words challenge blog: Here is what I did with this month’s challenge: I did some stamping behind my photo and layered cluster, and then I also stamped a frame…

Wherever You Go, Go With All Your Heart

Hello there fellow artists. I have five layouts which I will share with you today – so brace yourselves.  I’ve been super busy this week in my art room – and today I decided that I’d better make a start with uploading my challenge entries! First up is the challenge at More Than Words: So,…

You’re My Sunshine

My next creation is for the challenge at More Than Words. I wanted to make this a bright and cheery layout – as that is the inspiration I took from the challenge photograph.  I also love the depth of field in the photograph, so I chose a background page that had the same kind of…

Cherish Yesterday

Hi friends! Today I want to share my layout for the August Challenge at More Than Words: Here my layout for this one. I used the word yesterday in my title.  The photograph was taken on my (maternal) grandparents’ wedding day; it’s sepia and has been coloured in (which, I think, was all the rage…

Love This Journey

I really love taking part in the challenges at More Than Words – they really allow you to think outside the box – and also, personally, I tend to move out of my comfort zones – in varying degrees.  I think this is a good thing, as I sometimes really get stuck in a rut…

Making Memories Together

Hi everyone. It’s been quite a while since I’ve posted. As mentioned previously, this year has been a really rough one for my family and I.  After my precious daddy was diagnosed with lung cancer on the 4th of January, he had a stroke on the 9th of March and then left us on the…

Life is About Moments

Hey! I’ve been pretty busy this week, churning out several projects; three of which I want to share today (the rest are future dated DT commitments, so you’ll have to wait for those!) First up, is the November challenge at More Than Words – here is the direct link.  And here is the image inspiration:…

Perfect Day

Hey. Today I am sharing three separate projects – which are for four separate challenges.  I’m happy to be ahead of myself for a bit; this is a rather rare occurrence, so I might as well make use of my time to fiddle around in my art room. First up is the beautiful challenge that…

Explore. Laugh. Dream.

And lastly, my take on the challenge for July at More Than Words . I was quite inspired by the colours in the image – but I wanted to make mine ‘lighter’, so I worked more with white.  As my daughter gets older, she is getting wiser and more aware – exploring life in general; learning all…

U Make My Heart Flutter

Next up is a mixed media oval canvas, which I did for the March challenge over at More Than Words.  It is just so incredibly PRETTY! Butterflies are one of natures’ most miraculous and beautiful creatures; I have plenty in my garden currently and it’s so calming to watch as they literally waft from flower…
