Faber Castell Gelato’s

I saw a layout on the internet a few weeks ago that used this technique of coloured spots and then lots of embellishments, and thought I’d have a go as I really loved the interesting effect.



I used 3 colours and just scribbled them on the paper in circles and wet them with a little water on a brush. I love the depth of colour it gives. Plus its really fun to do.


Then I just messed about with lots of different embellishments (this was fun too)!


Had a bit of a crafty mess going on the table today, but back to work tomorrow so needed a good dose of craft.

One day…..


The school holidays are almost over and I will be going back to work soon ….so have been playing with paper and glue a lot lately. This is just a fun layout I did to remind me of things to come….one day ….we would love to get a little van and look around our beautiful country.

Ok so I have been admiring Missy Whiddens work lately and wanted to have a go at using her painting technique, which I love. So I looked up one of her process videos and off I went.

My scrapbooking friend Trina came over for the day and we decided to have a crack at one of Missys layouts. This is what we ended up with.


above is Trinas layout


and this is my layout. We both were really happy with our effort and thank you Missy for sharing your wonderful work.


a few years ago…


One of my layouts was on the cover of Scrapbooking Memories Magazine featuring Remys cute little face. I also was asked to do a feature page with a layout and card made from the scraps….will have to find that and post it.

Was thinking I might enter the Scrapbooking Memories Masters this year, which made me think of this layout.
