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.

Jot Magazine Mood Board


I love the colour combo in this months Jot mood board. The bright splash of raspberry and peach is just gorgeous with the other cooler colours.

I have been trying out paint techniques on my layouts this week. Applying gesso first and using Heidi Swapp mists and Faber Castell gelatos.

I’ve used some Ruby Rock It old paper I found in my stash, and a basic grey sticker sheet cut into pieces. Often I want to clean out and throw away some of my old stash, but you never know when you may need it!
