Good morning!

Another lovely morning, great for the washing lousy for the grass to grow! Told you I wouldn't wait as long as last time (: today I have two things to show, the first is a journal book I made, I've made it fairly small so I can take it places it just fits into my handbag with a few colouring pencils. I have made three signatures then using a copic stich method I sewed them all together, yes it was complicated for me, but I was really happy with my first try and I'm sure like everything I will get better with practice. on the cover I have used paper and some modeling paste through a mask then randomly painted it, and I love the way it has come out.  on the inside back I just decorated it using pretty things and glued a hair tie under some of the things, the hair tie is my clasp to keep It closed, it just hooks onto a Tim Holtz hitch fastener which sit on the front cover. Simple but effective.

The second lot I would like to show is the first few pages of my paper bag and tag album I'm making. I'm using up all my odd sods of papers and those I don't really like, I'm using a mixture of sprays to cover the paper and inking all edges with Walnut ink. This album will take me awhile to complete so I will show it in stages, I plan to fill it as I go with some of  my highlights of 2014.
Well that's all from me for now, so until next time
happy Craftin

It's been awhile!!!!

Hello, I know it's been awhile and I haven't really got any excuses I just haven't got around to posting anything, so for the last few months a have been quite busy, for Christmas I made most of my gifts, that kept me busy and I must admit since its summer I have been outside a lot spending quality time with my family, we have been doing a few bush walks together I have some lovely photos of us, Little man really enjoys walking through the trees looking at the birds and bugs.
This term Little man is at Kindy three days a week, and will be starting school visits soon, so maybe I will get more time in my craft room (lol)
I have been craftin a little and here is a couple of my scrapbook pages,
A few friends and I decided to challenge each other by swapping journal/scrapbook pages, so we each have a few things that we want on our pages like a colour or certain embellishment or quotes and what kind of page, vintage, mixed media, etc.
One friend wants something to do with Dr  Seuss, a picture or quote, and it had to be a 12by 12 I struggle with 12 by 12 but was quite happy with what I finished with, and the point of our little challenge is to go outside our comfort zone. so I leave you with a photo of my Dr Seuss page. and I hope to show a few others next time and not leave it so long before I'm back, until then Happy Craftin
