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.

Enjoy the Moments – Canvas ~ Australian Scrapbook Ideas #19 ~ Tried & Tested – Texture Play ~ Dusty Attic

Here is a Canvas I created for the Tried and Tested – Texture Play article in Issue 19 of the
This was fun to create, lots of modelling paste on this one and using stencils and chipboard to create the texture patterns.
The full step by step instructions for this canvas can be found in this issue.

Handy Hint
Spritz over spray inks with water to give different blending effects and soften the colours.
Great ideas
Use Chipboard Flourishes to create texture paste dimension.

To get this effect on the title, paint unevenly with the black dabber paint in splotches so that there is still raw chipboard showing. Next spray over the letters with the Electric Blue smooch spritz. Once dry apply a coat of the azure smooch over the letters this gives the effect of a New Zealand Paua Shell.
