Australian Scrapbook Ideas #28 – The Art of Journaling Feature


ASI Issue #28 is out now!! In this issue I have created an Art Journal out of an old Diary, you can see the instructions for creating this in the current issue.
There is soooo many talented designers in this issue, as always. All the girls are truly inspiring!
I had a lot of fun creating this one and have lots of plans for many more soul inspiring pages to come! 🙂


This journal is going to be a reminder of the messages that I need to hear daily.


I will be drawing and painting a lot more of these angels, still trying to think of a name for them. Will be something like spirit guides or something like that.
If you have a great name for them I would love to hear it!


Thank you for dropping by!

Australian Scrapbook Ideas #25 Frame it Up ~ You Make Me Smile

The Final Layout in the Frame it UP article in Australian Scrapbook Ideas.Loved doing this one, I have used the Manor house frames and some resin frames to create this layout.  This one is a real mix of styles with a bit of everything thrown in!

I am so proud of my girl, she has been through some real challenging times in recent months, you just want to protect your kids forever. It is so hard to watch them have to go through some necessary life challenges that makes them better people.

I absolutely adore this Bo Bunny range of papers too! I love all the bits and pieces for clustering!

Moments of Peace ~ Australian Acrapbook Ideas #19 ~ Tried & Tested – Texture Play ~ Dusty Attic

I am back with another Australian Scrapbook Ideas Layout from my Tried and Tested Article on Texture Play. I have used the texture paste on the branches on this one to imbed beads.

Full step by step instructions can be found in Issue 19 of Australian Scrapbook Ideas.

I took this photo of this bird last year while on holidays, this was taken through a fence with a zoom lens. Wish I had a better lens for bird photography.

I have filled the chipboard butterfly’s wings with impasto and beads, love the effect of the beaded butterfly.
