Jot moodboard...

One of the things on my to-do list this month was to play along with the gorgeous mood board from Jot Magazine, and even though I almost ran out of time I'm happy that I got the chance to play along.

I loved the beautiful berry tones in this mood board but struggled to find papers in my stash to suit that colour range, so I decided to create a few of my own painted cards. 

I don't usually do many girly pages, but I just loved the way the pretty pinks worked with the little pop of teal and yellow.

The vintage fabric from the board inspired me to add a mix of floral patterns to my layers, and I love the way the painted elements help to tie everything together.

happy heart...

Hi again :) although I usually pick my kits from the Sassy store with the intention of creating pocket pages, there are some collections that just call for a layout too and this was one of them.

I have combined items from the Simple Stories Faith  and Simple Stories Domestic Bliss collections to create my layout and love how well both of these ranges work together. 

I love the detail hand stitching adds to my projects, and have shared several tips to ensure you get good results with stitching on your projects over on the Sassy Scrapper's blog

mixed media pockets...

Hi again :) I've shared a few posts over on the Sassy Scrapper's blog recently using Pink Paislee's 'Oh My Heart' collection for my January pages and showed how you can get two completely different looks from the same collection by adding some mixed media items to your pockets. 

I went with Dylusions paints with some rose gold accents for week three and used the paints to re-colour a few of my cards to bring out the bright colours in the colour. 

 As you can see the results were bright, but perfect for documenting one of our summer adventures. 

I also used the paints to do some stamping which you can learn more about in my original post.  

Again using the same range as my base, I created some softer pages this time.

Check out my week four post to see how I used a few of the new Prima Color Philosophy inks to create some soft watercolour effects. 

The tone and feel is much softer on these pages, but still flows nicely through my album.

march @kraft+...

Hello March, and hello to a brand new challenge from Kraft Plus Challenges blog! 

We have a fun 'denim revolution' theme this month, and I think this might just be my favourite challenge so far.

I cut up an old pair of jeans and went with different toned denim layers as a backdrop to some photos of my little guy at the park.  

I added lots of shiny gold rub-ons and love the way the stars worked on the fabric. 

  Check out all of the fabulous denim creations over on the Kraft+ blog, and don't forget to upload your entries by the end of the month for a chance to win one of the awesome prizes up for grabs!
As always, thanks for stopping by xx
