Mixed Media Canvases...

...are my new passion, I LOVE them!
I thought it was about time I got around to showing you my first mixed media canvas I made ages ago, this was to blame to getting me hooked on them!!
This one doesn't photograph that well but you get the idea! I've come a long way since this one as I've now made lots!! I've even started selling them! I will be sharing them with you along the way!  
This one is for my bedroom so I did it me favourite colours and sparyed it with silver glimmer mist so it catches the light!

I really love making them and can't stop, I have so many ideas for them!! So I now have an Etsy shop to sell my canvases and I recently sent one to America!

I'll be back with more soon!
Thanks for looking! xx

Pepper Cake

This time the challenge at The Studio was all about negatives, in anyway you can so I went for a misted rectangle mask to leave to negative and punch outs!
The photo is of the Pepper pig cake I made a couple of years ago that I haven't managed to scrap yet! I used lots of layers and bright summery colours. This challenge is great for using up scrap paper that you have  used punches, something that you would probably throw away works really well on a layout!
We still have the Jenni Bowln DT joining in with us at The Studio this week so there's loads of inspiration and there's another gift voucher up for grabs so go check it out!
Back soon! xx

Had a bit of a week last week, I was feeling run down and had to have a break, feeling better now though thank goodness! So a bit of a catch up is needed!
Last Sunday's challenge at The Studio was to go vintage! I was late uploading my layout but managed to do it and it's there now! It's quite exciting over at The Studio this month as we have the Jenni Bowlin DT joining in with us and you can win not one but two prizes from them too!
As it was jubilee weekend I was inspired to scrap about the queen! I thought it needs to be in my album for years to come.
I not really one for vintage I prefer bright colours but I enjoyed doing this challenge and sometimes there are times when you need to use vintage! I used my Old Type embellishment kit from The Make and Create shop as it is vintage inspired which need it easier for me as it was all in one kit! Everything apart from the Kraft border and Thickers is from the kit!
I used my nice script stamp on the background in places, I love this paper from Crate Paper it goes great with it!

On to the Jubilee weekend celebrations! 
Saturday I did a local village day I took my Phoenix Cards to sell, it was a bit quiet but didn't do too badly in the end!
Sunday I went to my aunties for Sunday dinner with family and to watch the queen in the flotilla of course!
And Monday was our village street party! It was great to see so many people out enjoying themselves, I took some good snaps that I will scrap shortly! Here's some of them!
The little cupcakes I made for the party, there was loads of food!!
These tables went on forever!!

These cupcakes I made for family, I went a bit crazy with the decoration!!!
Hope you've made it to the end of this long post! Thanks for looking!
Back soon xx
