Watercolour and Chevron

Hello Everyone
These are two of my favorite things at the moment. Chevron pattern and watercolour! In this layout I have used a crafters workshop template to create the Chevron Pattern. I played around with mixing my watercolours and I just made sure my brush was not to wet to avoid too much bleeding under the template. I didn't want it to be perfect either.

 I then outlined the pattern using a charcoal pencil. I also flicked some watercolours on my page. Oh and I painted my mini peg with watercolour! I just love these colours and these new papers from Carte Bella -Hello Again range.
I used these large alpha from Amy Tangerine as my title and my title is also my journalling and sums up how I feel when I look at this photo of my sweet girl and I.

I am now keen to try more templates with my watercolours!

We have a busy but fun weekend with my daughters Ballet concert tomorrow!
Thanks for taking time to stop by my blog.

Colour Challenge...

Hi There
These two are my wonderful parents whom are very special to me. As a gift  I framed this layout for them. I created this layout using the August colour challenge at Life.Paper.Scrapbook. This layout started out very different then I got carried away but I really enjoyed playing with mixed media again which I haven't done for a long time!

close up/details

lots of layers with gesso, ink, stamping, HS color shine, glimmermist, tissue paper, water colour and I even dug out some beautiful prima flowers from my huge stash

These are the gorgeous colours for the challenge at Life.Paper.Scrapbook. You still have 10 days left in this challenge if you want to give it a go!
Thanks for stopping by my blog
Enjoy the rest of your week....
ours is going to be a wet one just before we hit spring!

Night Photo's

Hi All 
Hope your week is going well the weekend is almost here! 
Today I wanted to ask have you scrapped night time pics or very dark photo's. If you have what are your tips?? I have been wanting to scrap a few night pics for a long time but never really had any great ideas on how to go about it.
 So a few weeks ago I watched a video via Two Peas in a Bucket. I love their videos and you can find the one that inspired this layout here. This video give some great tips for night photos including colors, placement and layers. I really wanted to capture the stillness of my photo and I didn't want it to get lost so I went with a light background with just a few pops of dark patterned paper. I also had to add a few stars being a night time pic and because I love stars! My title is again done on the silhouette cameo and I added watercolor and ink to it.
