Art Journal: Colour and shapes

 I am feeling so very thankful for my art journal at the moment.
The place to play and experiment, to express my emotions, and my day with colour and doodling.
Document you life project for last week was:
Art Prompt: Colour Wheel
Journal prompt: "I found I could say things with colour and shapes that  I couldn't any other way"
Some detail shots. I layer lots and lots of colour. I used pan pastesl, Gelatos, water colours, fibre paste and gesso.

Scrapping: Sweetest People

Happy Australia Day!
I hope your all enjoying this long weekend.

I snuck in some scrapping the last couple days. I  have been playing with the January Main kit from APOCD. This kit would have to be my favourite!!! So much so, that I didn't want to cut up any the papers or use any of the embellishments.. tee hee... but I did eventually give in.

Now excuse this pregnancy brain... I meant to take a photo of the background I create,
but I f o r g o t ! ! !
I created this with lots of watercolours, some stamps which I then used water colour paints to colour them and a couple of Heidi swap Colour shine sprays and Shimmerz.

Then I layer lots of those fabulous Dear Lizzy embellishments. They are so cute!!

Cant wait to share another project soon with this awesome kit.

Project Life: Week 1

I started off my new twenty fifteen project life album last week. I loved my finished album for twenty fourteen that I had to start one for this year.
To make this more manageable for me, I have down sized my album to 8.5 x 11
By putting the memories into project life format, it allows to have a little with myself in my studio reminiscing about the week it was.

Art Journal: The Documented life projecct

So... new year... new goal.. new adventures... new family member... new inspiration.
Last year I try to do art journaling. For some reason or another, it never really 'evolved'. This year, I set myself the creativity goal of simply trying to do more art journaling. Art journaling is very therapeutic for me, especially at night when the kids are sleeping and hubby is out working, it kinda breaks the quietness and allows me to document my thoughts. It even allows me to try new techniques or new products, such as layering my colours.
After seeing Andrea's, gorgeous little art journal, I decided to do the same.
I created this with some watercolour paper folded in half to make it A5 size, which is very manageable but yet plenty space to draw, or paint or collage.
I then came across The Documented Life project and the rest is history - Tee hee
This is my first entry in my twenty - fifteen art journal.
Week 1: Art Challenge: book paper
Journal prompt: Be your own goal keeper

Some detail art journals photos.

Who else is art jorunalling?

Scrapping: Merry Christmas

Happy New Year! I hope you all enjoyed your first day in twenty-fifteen yesterday!
I will kick start the new year off with some inspiration for you.

By far the favourite in the December APOCD cupcake kit is all the gold. Gold paint, Gold embellishments, Gold sequins, Gold papers.
 Gold is also one of the trends at the moment.

I had to use lots and lots of gold to create this page.

"merry Christmas"

Lots and lots of close ups! so many layers and so much sparkle. It looks so much better in real life.

 Flowers and straw not included
 Santa Embellishement not included in the kit

I hope this inspires you to start your creativity for 2015.

Mini Album : December Daily completed

Hello! I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and shared much love and giving. We had a very quiet relaxing Christmas, just what Mr Clause order for us! :-)

I wanted to pop by tonight and share with you my finished Daily December because it features lots and lots of the December Cupcake kit. It is the most cutest kit and features some super fun embellishments.

I hope you enjoy my Album as much as I did documenting my December.

I love the gold paint and stencil in the kit, perfect for my cover!

the perfect size sticker alphas too.
 The cute gold spotty envelope was perfect to tuck the boys Santa letters in.

 We wrote out little 'wish lists' of activities we would like to do over the festive season. There tucked in the little envelope.

Happy New year and looking forward to inspiring you in 2015!
