MINI ALBUM: One


Good Morning,

Why are Mondays so hard? Does it have anything to do with 'new'?
You know, new week?
Or perhaps the torture of Monday.

Made I will stick to Garfield approach.

Lets value each precious day and moment.

The other week, I had some really pretty left over from the Hip kit Club July kit.
Sure, I could saved them for that 'special' project, but going off previous experiences, that 'speical' project is still non-existent.
I reached out to my Instagram friends for ideas.

Now, i haven't done a mini album in yonks.
Like over 12 months.
I felt like I shouldn't been sweeping the floor, because this mini album seemed harder than what it was.
I was like an apprentice sweeping that floor.
Of course being so 'green' and out of practice, this didn't turn out how I envisage.

But thats ok.
Leaves room for growth and doing things better uh.













Now lets make another one, but not so long in between droughts.

Layout: Perfection


Hello!

Just wanting to share you all and a page that I created using more Shimmerz Coloringz. There called Coloringz for a reason, super vibrant!

Once again I started with a gesso background and then started spritzing my coloringz on. This time instead of dabbing with paper towel to remove excess, I used plastic. It gives it a different look and adds a little more texture.

When trying to add texture and interest to a background, it doesnt need to be add or a slow process. This took no more than 10 minutes.
I then just add some splaters.

to highlight my colour background I machine stitched a border around the shimmerz area and absolute loved it.

Then I started bulidng my page.




I hope this inspires you even go back to basics and remember why you create!

LAYOUT: Together



Good Evening,

I feel so thankful when I get to sit and spend a little time doing something for me.
Documenting moments.
Freezing moments.
Smile.
Remincing with a few happy tears.
Hot coffee.

I even managed some hand stitching one those days. I haven't hand stitched on a page for a very long time. I mean very very long time.

Products used: July Hip kit club.  






The brightness makes me so happy!

Happy weekend!

LAYOUT: Best day ever


Howdy!

I have been having a play with some Shimmerz Coloringz.  These little shimmery bottles are the best for procrastination when it comes to housework! tee hee.

Honestly, I loved having fun blending the colours and using the noozle to doodle with. How needs a pencil! tee hee.

I started off with a gesso background again. Then spritz some water onto the background, which allows the colours to blend a little easier. (Remember to choose colours that blend nicely and dont give a 'muddy' colour). I then started spritzing on pink stilettoes and Mandrin Mai Tai.
In between each spray I dabbed excess with a paper towel. I just keep spraying, varing the distance I sprayed the bottle from too, till I got how I liked it.

I then used the nozzle to doodle. Didn't matter how uneven and rough the circles were, I just doodled.

Lastly I used Vibez, to add some splatters.

Once it was all I dried I did a little stamping and used a characol pencil to highlight some of circles.

Then I started to layer and build my page.







Go on, have a go blending a few colours and see where it takes you. ;-)

PROJECT LIFE: #the100dayproject - FINAL EDITION



 How ya going?

Whats the deal with weekends folks? One minute its Friday night and then suddenly its Sunday evening. Well, maybe next weekend I will relax in Pj's and play  monolopy. 

The highlight of last week.
I finished #the100dayproject.
What?
I did, I really did. 

Being a mother brings alot of responsibility. Happy times and tears.
I know there are children out there who dont have a blessed relationship with there mother or father. There closer to their peers than there parents. I am so grateful that the children, although there young still, can be open with me and I hope that will always be the case. They will grow and face challenges. As irriating as I may be to  the children, as stern as I can be and I am sure I get on their nevers. A lot. I know however, when push comes to shove we have each others back. 

There is nothing I would not do for my children.
Like devoting time each and everyday for 100 days straight to complete the children album.
What memories they hold.

Now to keep the kids albums upto date!
*waves a magic wand*
