Locking in distress inks

Love life

Trying out some new varnish spray on distress inks, locked in the ink beautifully and was able to touch it and play with it after the spray. Posted a quick video on YouTube If you wanna check that out.
The rest is some paper placing again and some coloring in water paper with my fave distress inks.
Hope you enjoyed!

This journal page is inspired by our immigration. I really enjoyed working on this page, it isn't to over complicated or had to many layers, just clean and simple. I used gelatos around the edges and did some stamping. This is also my first paper placing and I loved it.

Hope you enjoyed!

Gorjuss girl Page

Today I bought some Metalic paints, and also received my Gorjuss Girl stamp in the post, so I had to play around a bit to see what I could do.  Bit of a random page, but I just love my girl!  Coloured her with some ranger ink.  If your interested in the supply list, please leave me a comment and I will supply.

Hope you enjoy! 

Learning to love myself

This Page is a bit dark and not alot of textures going on here, but that's because if you could feel the pages, it feels like leather, and thats because I used a foam roller to apply the paint.  I just love the feel of it, makes the pages thicker also, so you dont even have to stick 2 pages together like I usually do, because I bought a cheap visual diary.

Hope you enjoy!

Everything is Possible

I wanted to do a bright background for this page.  I started with drawing where I wanted the shapes and flowers.  Then I started to colour.  I stamped and went back with colour, to push the stamps into the background.  I left the page unfinished for about a week, and then my mum send me this quote, which inspired me to finish it.
Please leave me a comment if you like it, or make some suggestions.

Hope you enjoy!

Live life in full colour

I got inspired by a youtube video for this page, to have a middle page smaller with a "hidden message"  I love to get my quotes form pintrest.  After Youtube its my fav.  So for this page I started with the sheveron design at the back which is actually tissue paper and just layered with paints, stamps and inks.
Hope you enjoy!

Birthday card

January cards

December and January arts

This is one of my favorite pages. I just loved making it.

I used some Ranger Inks for the background, and stamped with "vintage photo".  The Stamp is from Kayser - Fly free.
Since we are relocating from South Africa to New Zealand, I felt inspired by this page.
Trying out some masking for the trees, using Ranger distress inks and then embossing the trees for the effect.   
Here I used my favorite inks again and also coloured chip board cut outs with the inks.  Stamping also in the Ranger inks (Seedless Preserves - Purple)
