Days gone by

hello again
a very quick post following on from the last one 
I had so much fun creating it I wanted to try contrasting bold colours this time 
I decided to use a very old photo of the good old days when I had the opportunity to lay on the beach frequently 

this was a real experiment with different mediums to get the effect I wanted I have embossed on the chipboard and used acrylic paint over the top, used textured paste and mica stuck to the card stock and some spray mist as well 
I am loving the colours of this and the fact it is something a little different have a few pocket pages now to work on to match my layout

Delicate wave

Hello again
have been trying to get some of these projects up onto the blog for almost a fortnight now unfortunately storms and lack of Internet has slowed a lot of these tasks down 
But finally we are here and will be able to share a few projects today and some more in the near future.
I have been playing with Texture paste I am not the best multi medium person, as I have always preferred structure, however I do like it thou, just sometimes it takes a few efforts for me to get the one I am happy with.
You never see what ends in the bin.
this particular layout I played with a sand texture paste actually like the effect achieved with it and the sprays over the top, the glare I could not eliminate is transparency stamp on with white pigment ink and lots of layers of Imaginarium chip board
this layout is a follow on from the others using the Sea Breeze Collection

I have used sprays distress paint and some gold ink on my chipboard and the texture paste as well was so much fun creating this layout
another couple of cards created in a class just recently

let your dreams set sail

A quick drop in to share a couple of pages I made a few weeks ago but wanted to do a photo shoot of more than one project so held off, now I am able to share these pages.
These are again of the wedding using  my Sea Breeze Collection from Couture Creations, I wanted to play around with mixed media, like texture paste and sprays, I am the first to admit it is hard for me but this was a great experiment with room for improvement, but the most important I had fun.
Note two or three attempts went in the bin.




hope you like

Days gone bye

Today again I am to be a guest designer on Couture Creations Blog,
how quick has this year gone for us I should be sharing a Christmas in July card instead I thought I would share some Vintage classics today.
This is a photo of my Grandma at Port Noarlunga beach about 1929 which is not far from whereabouts we live ironically back then would of been quite a trip up the hill. 
I wanted to show how the Sea Breeze can be Versatile with your vintage photos or even Male cards.

My Grandma is centre back of this image, what I think is funny about this photo that most of the ladies are in their bathers and the men have suits on
Its a great photo everything about it. 

Because I only had one photo I have created the matching page with the image from the Ephemera Set not my Grandma although she was just as lovely.

Just a few cards I have created for classes in June using Acetate again, and The Sea Breeze papers and Dies.

I think you will agree the Sea Breeze can suit either Male or Female layouts or cards my next task will to create a male card to share with you

Today I am excited to be a guest designer on the Couture Creations blog.
Before showing you my pages I have to apologise and make some excuses about my tardiness towards my blog. 
Although it may look like I am not creating rest assured I am, unfortunately they just have to stay hidden for awhile, which I find extremely frustrating, because I just want to share.
So now I have teased you just a little, I will share with you the ones I can.
I am still working on my daughter's friends Wedding using pocket pages as well as a layout.
I have not done any step by steps but have provided a lot of photos to inspire you.

In this layout I have used Imaginarium chipboard painted dark blue and two of my Sea Breeze dies
Cardinal Frame and Sandy Border  along with the Sea Breeze papers

Now we venture into the pocket pages,
 which I find hard to photograph but I believe you will get a reasonable idea of the way it is sitting. In the top part of the sleeve I again have used Couture Creations Acetate 12 x 12 cut into 12 x 6 inches.

 On my  3 brass pieces they have been painted with a Metallique Acrylique paint (Aqua), once it was dry I then painted over it with the navy paint and wiped off excess with baby wipes to highlight the underneath paint.

And some more pockets

hope you liked my pages I still have some more lovely photos of the Wedding ones with the beautiful bride to work on, so stay tuned.
All the papers that I have used are from my Sea Breeze collection from Couture Creations as well, as the Acetate
 Chipboard and brass from Imaginarium.
