Tags: Happy day

Its been wonderful the last few weeks to simply be able to create a few little bits and pieces.
Not much went prior to the 6 weeks of school holidays, but I am slowly finding my creativity groovy again and establishing my routine.

Wanted to share just a few tags I create the other week. If you follow me on Instagram (link in the side bar) you would have seen most of these.

The memories in this album are so precious to me and i know if i didn't have it documented i am sure i would forget a lot of it.

Here are the last few weeks,

Stay tuned to see what I am up doing for 20-16.

Mixed Media: Short Stakz


School holidays these last 6 weeks, has not allowed me much of an opportunity to be creative.  But I know in the near future that they will change, with 2 boys starting school next week.
I am bond to need a distraction and some tissue box or two!

Anyways, I have been having a little play with the new shimmerz short stakz. I just love how they are on special mixed media paper, makes it so easy and super fun to use.

All I simply did was use a water colour brush, but not to much water. If you use a lot of water you will find that it runs and can't stay within the lines.
I used shimmerz pots first. Once that dried I used creameez over the top to layer my colour and create a tonez affect.

I just played and fiddle and this is water I came up with. I am going to pop it into my project life spread!

Products used:  shimmerz -Tickle me turquoise/golden wheat/magenta.
                          Creameez- boggie  boardin' blue/ piggy pink/daffodil

I hope you can get your hands on some this absolutely amazing stakz soon!

MIXED MEDIA: Joy canvas


Back in this post here, I mentioned about creating some little canvas for my lounge room a little while back,
I am still working on them.
This another little one that will sit alongside my  'true happiness'  and 'five' canvas.


I started over with my canvas covered in gesso, I then used my favorite colored colouringz sprays, Jeni B Bleu and Well blow me down. I added a little spray of water to allow the colors to move about and drip. I then add a few splatters with the nozzle.

I then applied some Texturez in Patina colour with an old card and some Dazzlerz, Spun sugar with a stencil and an old card.

Then I just add my layers in with paper and lots of Prima flowers and resin.
Then my set of little canvas are complete!

Daily December: Completed album


Happy New year my readers!
It has certainly been a busy time here and still is.  Not a lot of messy happy fun in the studio at the moment. School break means lots of family time.

I have managed to finish off my Daily December and wanted to share it with you.
