Goodbye to February!!
Started the month in Asia with our family of 5, to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary,
Had a Craft Alive event in Toowoomba,
Hosted the lovely Di Garlings Qld tour of stores and then she taught at my Workshop Wonders event
I've taken 2 days of Heartfelt Creations classes with Emma Lou at Arnolds
I've only had a small window of time here and there to do some challenges this month
I did choose the
Together & Beautiful layout
I started with a sheet of 49 & Market patterned paper, it is quite thick and doesn't buckle as much with wet mediums. I doodled a border with an Aquarelle pencil before tracing over with a wet brush.
I've pencilled some thoughts and sentences with the word
all over the background, and then added some random stamping with a Paper Roses stamp 'Music notes'.
I misted some 'cherry' spray from Marker Maniacs through a small brick stencil and 'stamped' the excess too!!
I did have an extra large Ampersand in my stash, unknown brand, which I roughly covered in texture paste and then sprinkled a couple of colours of Beck Beattie's 'Color Crush' powders (a bit of pink and brown) and then misted so they mixed together and let everything dry!!
Misted the wood veneer 'beautiful' with the Marker Maniacs mist - lovely colour and shimmer!!
Clustered some 49 & Market flowers, Prima leaves, a D-lish doiley and some stamens from Scrapping with Style, my local shop.
