Card: Happy birthday

 
Hello!
Just wanted to pop by today to share the birthday card I made for Brae birthday.
I filled it with lots of pretty little studio embellishments.



That monkey is so cute, right?

Those sticker balloons just topped the card.  Lots of shimmerz in there too.
 
Happy Friday!

DIY: coasters


Hello!

Had a little creative fun the other day. Had an old pair of denim jeans laying around and thought it would look good to create something with them.

I then got out my stencils and fabric paint and painted away with no real idea of what to do.
After I finished painting I then decided they would look really good as denim coasters.




I challenge to just use play and experiment!!

mixxed media: Canvas

Hello!

My Brae  celebrated his 6th birthday on the weekend. He had a super fun day at home, playing with all his new things he received.

A few weeks back I created a cute little canvas to sit on the dinning table which acted that day as the birthday table. He now has it placed on his bedside table!
I used lots of shimmerz to make it all sparkly.

 shimmerz used: Inklingz blue my mind and giddy about green
shimmerz key lime
Dazzlerz: sour apple



 Here's a little step by step on how I created the canvas.

First I gesso my canvas first, then apply some texture paste. I then spritz my canvas with water and then I put my inklingz on allowing the different tones to plenty and move around. I simply kept adding this I was happy with it.
I then add some of the shimmerz to areas to brighten it up and some dazzerlz to add a little more texture.

I then cut out my cupcake shape from a 6 x6 paper pad.
I added more texture with tissue paper to the bottom of the cupcake.
I used my finger in some shimmerz to run around the edge of the cupcake to add definition.
Then I just embellished the canvas till I was happy.
That super cute monkey flair came from a pretty little studio.


Happy Tuesday!

Project Life: Album one full!


I am so happy with myself, I filled my first project life album for twenty-fifteen, which means I have completed 26 weeks in the year and am upto date!
I should be happy with myself right? Tee hee

Seriously, it makes me so happy documenting memories and all those little things in life, even the mundane things. Hearing of the sad loss of Heidi swapp son, not only puts a lump in throat and tears in my eyes, it also hits home to me as to why I do this craft/hobby. Its to remember these memories of our lives and our children.

Anyways, here is Week 24

Hello!
 
After some 'maternity leave' at off the rails, I am back to share a creation every second month.
Ok, so this month wasn't suppose to be my turn, but, I really really wanted to do this months moodboard. After all it was pink and its my first pink page! :-)




Yes. It was challenging and honestly this took me days, but I am pretty happy with the result!

"dream"

I loved using the shimmerz. It added so much sparkle!
I also used bit and pieces from the studio calico kit and of course lots Prima.

Adding in lots of layers!

Arent those clouds and that stork from pretty little studio cute!
 
 
Happy Thursday!

DIY: Zany socks






Hello!

I have something to share today that is super fun and super easy.

On the last day of Term 2, my eldest son need some 'crazy' socks. All we had to choose from was some school socks and some tidy socks, you know used for town and special occasions. I didn't want to go to the shops to look  for a pair of crazy socks, so we opted to look in my draw of socks and found a pair of knee length black socks! Perfect.

So we cut some triangles out of felt and sewed them into the back of the socks. Check this pin out on pinterest, it has great way to show you how to do it.


Then we finished them off with some green fabric paint. My son even could do it. Just dip your brush in the paint and then onto the sock.



Then we have crazy socks!

XOXO

Mixed media: Party bags





Hello!

In my studio I have been experimenting with simple ways to use fabric paint. I wanted to create something that was cute and that didn't involve a lot of supplies  or  a lot of time.
Now having 3 little children to take care of and no spotlight or lincraft in town, I wanted to create something I had stashed away that was collecting dust.

I used 3 supplies
Calico bags
Fabric paint
Stencils.

I decorated, very simple and quickly a few calico bags. I use these bags a lot. There great for when my son wants to give a little 'something' to his mates for a birthday or his school teacher to simple say 'thank you'.

1.First all I did was lay a dottie stencil on the bag.
2.Then I put a small amount of fabric paint on a baby wipe.
3.Then I simply wiped over the stencil with the baby wipe.

I did at first try to use a paint brush and dab it on, but it didn't give me the even layer of paint or affect I wanted as you can see, compared to the other 3 bags.


I think the baby wipe allows the paint to move smoothly because of the little moisture that comes from the baby wipe.

Something so simple, yet effective. Even better the kids can do it in the school holidays!

Project life: Children album

 
Hello.


I want to show you a couple of pages that feature in my project life album. I have a standard project life album that showcases my weeks as a family. Then I also have a what I call a "highlight project life' album for my children. These albums are 6 x 8 inch, which show all those little moments that you want the children to remember. You know all those funny things they say, the candid photos, the blurry photos that still their story... if you get what I mean.

Anyways, in this album I also do a few little full page spreads with a photo that perhaps has more of a story to tell, or perhaps some personal journaling you want hidden. I want to show you today how I used my Shimmerz to add some sparkle to these full page 6 x 8 page spreads.



What is also great about adding shimmerz in, is the little pots can be easily taken in your travel bags along with your project life goodies. There small and really compact.




XOXO
