February is almost gone and I have neglected my blog…

So I’m just going to post some photos of all the things I have been creating this month.

Just a few sneak pics of some of the layouts I have created for kits at A Place To Create.

Lots of junk journal creating and also a class at A Place To Create on how to create one of these journals.

My new website


This is what I have been working on lately. There’s not alot available for purchase at the moment. Everything takes time to load and sort. I’m still waiting on some stock of my prints and with the post at the moment, that may be a while.

I have been adding things slowly, until I get a feel for how everything works. Creating a website is not for the faint hearted, even though the system does alot for you, theres still alot of learning.

So many choices and so many tiny details that you need to add. One tiny detail took me over an hour this morning to learn how to customise it, but it made me happy once I got there and now I know how to do it.

Since I will be on holiday a bit longer, I will be working on my website adding my scrapbook pages and journals very soon.

I hope you go check it out and look around. Keep in mind its a work in progress!

Let me know if you find any MISTAKES, I can work on correcting them. Thanks for visiting.

A bit of caravan love right here! This is Bronte.

Happy New Year 2022 woohoo!!

Happy New Year for 2022 ! This year is uncertain, but lets hope it’s a good one. I want to try new things with my art. I’m off to a good start as I’m on holidays and have had plenty of time to play with my art supplies. I made a small journal using a bunch of different papers, some just thin drawing paper, some watercolour paper and a few other pieces. I made them into a signature and started painting, just trying out different things, and its been really great!
This is the watercolour set by Prima called Pastel Dreams, so beautiful, just love the pinks in here. I’m loving the Combi van with surf board. Is it Kombi or Combi ?
This one is in a travellers notebook as the other painting was drying, so I have 3 journals going at once, just so I can move on and not wait for paint to dry! I’m very impatient.
This one is a mixed media abstract using Derwent Inktense pencils, watercolour and inks. Love the vivid colours.
This is wet on wet using Dylusion inks, such beautiful colours. when it was dry I used a black Micron pen to create flowers.
Added a little bit of line work to the background. I really enjoyed creating these and will continue to play with new techniques and enjoy my supplies I have.

November already!

Oh my goodness, I haven’t posted on my blog this month and am feeling like the time is just flying by.

Heres whats been happening in my world lately….

I have been creating beautiful journals and getting ready to host a stall at the Artisan Markets on November 28th at A Place To Create- my local scrapbook supplies shop that I love in Arana Hills Brisbane. It is a Sunday from 10am-3pm and will have some awesome creative people there selling their goods.
Some of my caravan prints/postcards/cards / magnets will be available on the day and I will take orders for anything I don’t have with me.
I’ve made some gorgeous handcrafted scrapbook or journal embellishments.
I love using these paperclips in my journals to add an extra pop of colour.
I have some Pre-made scrapbook pages for those of you wanting to get albums ready in a whizz! Just add your photos and journalling!
I have some Limited Edition scrapbook kits with lovely handmade elements included.
These are hand dyed doilies and I have some beautiful colour combos for you to choose from. These can be used in scrapbooking, card making or journalling or even just to decorate a package. The creating continues and I look forward to seeing you there.

New art supplies

I had a recent birthday and bought myself some new art supplies…even though I have been resisting the temptation over the past few months…I treated myself.

My absolute favourite new thing is Jane Davenport Layer Cake Paints. I first purchased the neon set and loved it so much I then got the Sushi Roll set and love them too. I don’t know which I like the most. Just know that these are the most beautiful creamy watercolour/gouache paints I have tried. This is my desk , and most of these paintings are actually done with inks and other watercolours, but the Layer Cake Paints are the ones in the long palette at the top of the image.

Some pattern making.
Love pink and red together!
Small clusters make beautiful patterns.
Why not some mirrors with neon pink background!
Some doodles and lots of colours.
This is the Sushi Roll Layer Cake Paints, so lovely.

Get your paints out and make some marks, even if its a 10 minute session.

The caravan love continues….

If you enjoy something, you tend to repeat the action….

I’ve used several mediums on these post card sized artworks. I start with some shimmer spray and then go in with Dylusions inks, watercolours and gelato crayons. I draw with fine liner pens in black and then add highlights with Jane Davenport neon layer cake paints and powder pigments. Sometimes I add Posca pen marks and stamping in black.
If you haven’t tried Jane Davenports art supplies, you definitely need to, they are awesome.
Posca pens are lovely to use also and they come in a big variety of colours and size. I love the thinner ones and mostly use black and white…and pink!
Stamping in my art is huge and I use a Versafine Clair black stamp pad, its crisp and lovely.
I often use old work that I’ve made. I try new paint techniques on 12 x12 watercolour card to use for my scrapbooking page and often they don’t turn out like I had planned so I cut these up and use them to create new art. Sometimes theres marks in the background that I incorporate into the new art. This one had large petals which I’ve made into trees in the new art. I could sit here all day and create these little treasures, its very addictive and each one is different and unique.
Get out your art supplies-ANYTHING, even paper and glue and create collage, painty backdrops, start small, it feels less intimidating and takes a shorter amount of time. It’s very therapeutic and satisfying all at once. Have a great Sunday!

Uniquely Creative has a new collection for September -Merry & Magical

Some Christmas vibes here for sure but also some gorgeous plains if you don’t want to do Christmas just yet.
Check out this gorgeous Joy word die! How beautiful is that!!!!
The Nordic Star die is so useful for some extra texture in the background.
Again the Nordic Star die used with rose gold foil card.
Some lovely flowers in this kit to add to your cards.
Oh and the Nordic Star die yet again heeheeee.
Sometimes more is more folks and I like to use everything up in my kit!
Nordic star die used with glitter card is a winner again!
Something a little different with some traditional colours for Christmas. Yay, Christmas cards done!
