Week 6 - Indigo

Now that's not a colour I generally reach for... but I don't know why it's gorgeous!

 Such a deep rich colour, I think I will have to try and work with it more often.

For this layout, I've paired it with white and gold.

Gold ink on the chipboard, just a touch of glam I think.  Sometimes gold can also be a bit daunting to work with, but little touches can complement a rich colour like Indigo.
I didn't have any indigo flowers, so I've painted some white Green Tara apple blossoms with Kaisercraft paint, and spritz with some white mist for a little shimmer.

This photo is about my desert rose, I thought it was going to die, leaves turning yellow and falling off, then all of a sudden it starting growing new baby leaves.

I didn't intend to try and grow one of these, but the Bunning's man marked it down to $5.00 after I found it out of its pot.... so it's my rescue baby!

Cheers, thanks for stopping by....

Follow the Rainbow - Week 3

Gosh, it's so lovely to see all the beautiful colour pages uploaded for Mystical Scrapbooks 2019 competition :)

We are up to week 3 now!  And here's my take on it.  A school photo that I've tried to scrap a couple of times, while my boy has an adorable and slight goofy look, it's the colours that had me struggling.....but this challenge helped!




I added some glimmer magic to my paint to give it a bit more interest,  it's doesn't show well in photos, but looks great in real life....add some tiny prills as well.

Now I'm off to finish some Cyber Crop layouts!

Follow the Rainbow - Week 2

 Hello ...back with some more scrappy shares. 

Mystical Scrapbooks -  Follow the Rainbow Competition - Week 2


Wow, this week really pushed me out of my comfort zone, and I think this competition is going to do a lot of that!  .... Orange is not a colour I would generally reach for.

But I do love how this page turned out!

In January my dear friend and goddaughter visited Perth, and I meet up with them for dinner in Fremantle as they wanted to watch the sun set over the water.... a bit of a treat for Sydney-siders.

I've used colour spray in a soft orange, black Kaisercraft stamp, layers with white and black card-stock.  Then filled out my page with all the orange and black things I could find in my stash.
Mostly from a Cocoa Vanilla ephemera packs and sticker, a few bits from a Di Garland kit from last year, and a flair from Just add Flair.

And from the Rainbow Embellishment kit I've used the 2 hearts and 1 star 



Cheers!

2019 Competition "Follow the Rainbow"

It's competition time over at Mystical Scrapbooks.

This time we are embracing colours!   Follow the Rainbow  competition runs for 8 weeks, and is open to all Australian scrapbookers.

Week 1 - RED


I've used  Simple Stories Life in Colour range, on white card-stock.  Some Green Tara flowers mixed in with others from my stash, Cocoa Vanilla stickers.  The chipboard and hearts are embossed with Zing and KaiserMists  and Kaisercraft rhinestones, Rainbow Kit Flair

I've added some clear matte texture paste for some subtle details... one of my most favourite products at the moment .

I've distressing and inked the edges in a soft green and added 3D foam in my layers... added some Kaisermist drops and rhinestones in red to finish it off.

 I love embossing powders!
Till next time...

Well it's taken all January..but I have finally found my word!

Archiscraps January Challenge

Archiscraps has a great black & white challenge for January... So I had a play this afternoon.

This is my first time I've grown a String-of-Pearls in about 20 years... and it started to flower!  I didn't know they flowered ❤

It's super cute, tiny and smells very sweet, almost like fairy-floss.  I got about 6 flowers in total. 

I've been expanding my patio garden over the last few months, and I'm really enjoying pot plants again ☺
