DIY: Fathers day gift


Fathers Day is just around the corner. For me is always hard to think of 'something' for my boys to make for Daddy. Because hand made gifts are the bomb, right!

I got out the Canson watercolour paper pad and the schmicke watercolours. I gave the boys a paint brush and told them to just paint.

My Mister 6 came up with this.

I then found a quote on pinterest that was very fitting for Daddy.I then used a black maker to right the saying.
Tip: Make sure the black marker is one that doesn't bleed when its wet.

I then got Mister 6 to colour in the words he wanted to colour in with water color pencil.

Now he has a cute little quote that he can frame and give to Daddy on Fathers day.

Scrapboking: Cute using Shimmerz


I have been playing around with Shimmerz colouringz and Dazzerlz.

Products used: Colouringz: Oh say can U see, Well Blue me down and Peachy keen
                        Dazzelerz: Sea U in the mornin! and Barely Blue

I love using the Dazzelerz with stencils. I used a big flower stencil here and then layed my Dazzelerz on.  I love the two affect it gave.

I simply sprayed the colouringz and then let it drip under my photo matt and lastely I used the nozzel to splatter.

Layout: Special for today - Shimmerz

I have a Shimmerz post to share with you today!

I love mixing up the shimmerz products on my pages. They add some much more detail and teture.

Products used: Creameez, great fruit and DAffodil
                         Texturez Patina and Gritty graphite
                         Colourtingz: well blue me down and Oh say can U see.

Some detail shots of my work.

I love how the colouringz add depth under my little houses
 The Texturez was perfect to make the 'smoke' coming from my little chimney,
 I used more texturez with a stencil under my other little house.

Lots of paint splatters and drips with the colouringz.

Hope you are inspired to mix up your shimmerz on your projects!

DIY: Water colour tags


You know when you get new products to play with and you really don't know what to do with them? The starting point for me is always to grab a piece of paper.
When I got the schmicke water colour paints, I grabbed some canson water colour paper pad and a paint brush and just started painting strokes and blending.

I finished up with my paper looking like this.

Now what will I do with it?

if your like me, you just cant throw it in the bin or waste it.
I decided to cut out some cute little tags and and a little stamp image to the corner.

Arent they cute.
There all ready for a little gift or to right a cute little message on.

Layout: Lucky me

Off the rails has a new moodboard for August.
I loved all the green and blue tones. I mean, a girl after her own creativity heart, right?

I love all the Maggie Holmes stickers, so much so, I had to layer a bunch in. I put the stickers on white cardstock and then I adhere them with double sided tape.

The background is full of shimmerz, gesso and texture paste. My 3 favourite supplies.

Happy Monday! XO

Card: Happy birthday

Just wanted to pop by today to share the birthday card I made for Brae birthday.
I filled it with lots of pretty little studio embellishments.

That monkey is so cute, right?

Those sticker balloons just topped the card.  Lots of shimmerz in there too.
Happy Friday!

DIY: coasters


Had a little creative fun the other day. Had an old pair of denim jeans laying around and thought it would look good to create something with them.

I then got out my stencils and fabric paint and painted away with no real idea of what to do.
After I finished painting I then decided they would look really good as denim coasters.

I challenge to just use play and experiment!!
