MY CAT ACE

For any cat lovers out there tomorrow I am adopting Ace. I am a foster carer for Angel Paws and when Ace was put in my arms I knew he would not be leaving our house. He has such a personality but not many people want Black Cats so they are hard to adopt out. I also have another Cat Annie also a foster cat but I do not have that same feeling as I had for Ace. Here is a photo of him playing in his paper bag.

TECHNIQUE WEDNESDAY - BRAYER TECHNIQUES

Hi Everyone,
 
I am late posting my technique wednesday, but although today is Thursday here we go: Today I am showing you a video on different techniques for scrapbooking backgrounds using a brayer. I often do this it is very useful on old paper you have had in your stash and have decided it is too bright for today's scrapbooking pages or the design is just old. If this occurs I get my brayer and with white paint or gesso I colour my whole piece of paper and this quietens down the colour. It works wonders!!


Hope you enjoy this technique.

TECHNIQUE WEDNESDAY - LAYOUT BACKGROUND USING STENSILS

Hi Everyone,

Have been a bit slow with my scrapbooking but hope to get a page done today. But today I am featuring a great video on how to do a background for a layout using stensils and distress inks. So grab a cup of coffee and hope you enjoy this video.



I really hope you like this video as I found it very informative. I love using stensils on my backgrounds but lately have been leaning towards Gesso and modelling paste as it seems the in thing to do at the moment, but I seem to have forgotten my distress inks. I love distress inks in my layouts it can give a nice bright feeling to a page or a very rustic look. Stay tuned for my layout for today.

THURSDAY EMBELLISHMENTS - CLIP ART BUTTERFLIES

 Hi Everyone,

Everyone loves butterflies and today I have a link to a range of clip art butterflies which you can print out then embellishment them as you like, with glitter, kindy glitz, anything really. I use these butterflies and I like to print them out on matt photo paper, this gives them a really nice colour aternatively you can print them on cardstock or any kind of paper. Just save them to your computer and then print them off. You can also put them in photoshop and make them smaller or larger as you like.


 Here is a sample of a few of the beautiful butterflies you can print out.

Hope you enjoy these lovely butterflies.

SCRAP THE GIRLS - MAY CHALLENGE

This month at Scrap The Girls the challenge is to take inspiration from the following quote
"something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue"
I took my inspiration from "something old". The photo I have scrapped
is a very old photo of my Great Grandmother.

I really enjoyed this challenge and had lots of fun scrapping this page.


TECHNIQUE WEDNESDAY - EMBELLISHING CHIPBOARD

Goodmorning Everyone,

The past few days have been a bit unseasonal for us up in Far North Queensland with very cold mornings so I have had to bring out the winter dressing gown which I have not used for many years. The days are absolutely beautiful and we are so lucky to live up this way. I absolutely love using chipboard on my LO's, but sometimes wonder what to do next to make them different from the last page I have done. Today I have a great little video with lots of ideas on how to embellish your chipboard.


Hope you use some of these ideas on your next scrapbooking LO.
