Finally doing a boys layout- Heather

Hi all
This time I've tried a boys layout, and have to say that I am happy with the results.

This photo of my nephew was perfect for these papers. I added some paint and stencil work in the background to help add layers without using my usual girly flowers and tulle.

These holiday themed flairs are perfect for this layout

Thanks for spending time with me.

A couple of quick cards

Hi all.

Well its that time of year where things get crazy and there isn't much time to get that last minute needed card done, and its the end of the year and our stash is running low.

So this time I've left my "more is more" theme behind and have made 2 cards that show how flairs are a great way to make a quick but still a nice and effective card that you can happily and proudly add to your gift.

These cards are also made very few things. They are just a white card base, some white cardstock, a random piece of patterned paper that I had in my stash, a couple of Darkroom Door stamp sets and some Wendy Vecchi water based inks that I have made the background with as well as used to watercolour the bird and butterfly. The cards are then are finished off with a complimentary sentiment and of course the Embellish With Flair flairs.
Now of course, these would also be very easy to add a lot more too if you have the extra time - maybe a couple of flowers, some ribbon/twine, some bling, more mixed media on the background rather than patterned paper - the possibilities are endless.

I hope that these were able to inspire you to create, even when you don't have a lot of to create.
Thanks again

Sketch Challenge 2

Hi all.
Here is my 2nd sketch challenge for this month.
I decided to do a masculine page, I dont do many masculine pages.
The background is done using clear crackle paste then rubbing brown ink into the cracks to help them stand out. The crackle paste has made my page curl a little, but I don't mind that.

I have used these cog chipboard pieces to be a platform for the flairs.
