Sunday's challenge at The Studio was about masks and stencils. I used a stencil for the background of my layout, I used green and blue paint on a sponge and it mixed itself a bit so it turned out quite a nice seaside colour which was nice as my layout is about something that happened on the beach! I also used another stencil to make the chevron shapes along the washi tape.
When we went on our family break away in February, we went to a great beach, it had lots of these balls of empty fish eggs. My sister also found a plank of wood so decided to play what she called 'fish brain cricket' with them!! It had to documented!

We have a great sponsor at The Studio this month which is the online shop Bellaboo so make sure you play along for a chance of winning a voucher!

Got more to show you so I'll be back shortly! 
Thanks for looking! xx

Whats in your pocket?

There's a new challenge up at The Studio today! This time we had a lovely colour pallet for inspiration. I've so busy creating lately that I am feeling a little bit uninspired, but luckily it came easy with this! I enjoyed making it and I'm even pleased with the results!!
When I went to my printer to print a photo to use, I found one of the cartridges was empty and it had to be the only one I didn't have! I did a quick order and waited! While waiting though I found this photo that I tried to scrap ages ago and never finished it, which is not like me! The colours in the photo worked great for the challenge though so it was meant to be!
The photo is of my nephew from a couple of years ago with his hand in his pocket, I had to scrap about when he used to love having things in his pocket and you never knew what's he was going to pull out! It could of been string, stones, elastic bands or anything!
It feels good to of scrapped it and it's now not laying around on my desk anymore!

We are lucky to have Bellaboo, the online scrapbooking store sponsoring us this month at The Studio, if you enter the challenges you could win a £15 voucher to spend there! Go and take a look at the challenge!

Back soon! xx

More Canvases

Here's another couple of my mixed media canvases that I have made and sold recently.
There's no place like home, this one went off to America, I really like this one so I might have to make another one similar to this!
I stamped the all the flowers and painted them in.

My Rocket canvas went flying off to Slovakia, I had some lovely feedback from this one, the little boy who got it loves it :-)  I like the dark blue background with the bright reflective silver stars and mist.
I'm busy creating more for my shop now, I've just created a ballerina which I'm quite pleased with! So nice to go all pink and girly!

Thanks for looking! xx
