Hi Everone  I have been busy getting pages ready for classes and for designe teams . Ill find out soon how I went with it all . So I got up early this morning and scrapped for fun . This is a photo of my Mum and Dad .I have used Kaiser Basecoat paper range , Kaiser wooden florishes , Kaiser flowers and a few of my own goodies .

I pulled the flowers apart and added more layers to the flowers , I have a piece of muslin under it all to add texture .

I have a new product that I simple love it , Ranger Vintaj metal paints . Their look is different from alcohol inks as they are solid just like paint  . they are really nice . you can do so much with them and I love using them on metal flowers and charms . You can see the blue paint

This paint will paint on anything that alcohol inks paint on . They are a lot of fun .Check them out and have a play . Untill next time stay safe and keep srapping .

I went to a retreat at brookfield on the weekend with the Glitterbugs Scrap group . What I great time i had .The place is fantastic amentities are excellent and the company was fantastic . I was lucky enough to share the Table oppsite Shaneen Robinson and picked her brains on how to do this Mosaic effect on the shadow box below . I love this affect it doesnt show it really well on here but it looks like little tiles all shiny with speckled grout inbetween  .
The baby in the photo is my Grandmother and her older sister . I couldnt use the phot in another way as someone had written thier names on the photo above thier heads . So fussy cutting them was a great way to use them and it looks lovely layered with all the pretty flowers . 

 The tiny little white flowers are ceramic  and Iam in love with them . They are so cute and dainty,so girly . I have use a new die I bought Fancy that floral heart , for all the leaves in the back ground.

I love these little shadow boxes they are super cute  and I was lucky enough to get some extras so I can see myself playing real soon . I enjoyed my retreat so much that Iam going again in July . What better way to spend my 50th birthday than doing what I love . Cant wait !! of course if you are intersted in coming along just contact me and Ill send details . Also Tenisha Furlong has a retreat on in November at Brookfield which Iam probally going to attend. If your intrested in either retreats and Ill send deatils . Looks like Iam going to be busy attending retreats for the rest of the year .
A new page I completted this morning . I have used a mask and double sprayed with Shazzas magic mica mists . I used Tom Holtz die cut and made the banners out of the out edge of the die cut . The paper is Kaiser .

I really love this photo of my grandchildren and my niece , the only problem was it was so colourful it took me a while to decide on a colour scheme that would work well with out over taking the photo . I love the new big silver daisy flowers I have ordered in ,they look just like the Pima mechanical ones and I haveordered  them in three sizes this is the largest one .

I have seen a lot of people using mico beads in chipboard letters .This is a great way to add texture to your page . I painted the letters first with white paint and then I coated them with Glossy accents and then sprinkled beads over them .

I had fun playing with this page and it came together so quickly .

Here is a page I did inspired by Finnabair I have been trying to load these photos for two days now but my blog has been rejecting them . I have not used any prima products on this page at all . I find it really hard to get the new Prima mechanicals and when I do find them on the net they are so dear it would cost me a small foutune for each page . So I have used what I have . Oh yes I have used mostly Kaiser paper and flowers and the bingo card is too oh and there are wooden cogs and florishes that are Kaiser . The rest are all charms that I sell threw my Facebook page Mirrabooka Scrapbooking .
I have placed a spider on the layout and then to achieve the web effect I placed Angelina fibre all over the top and metled it with my heat gun . I did this twice Some times it does stick and just shinks into a ball so you have to play a bit to get it how you like it .

I have spayed a black homemade mica mist on the black ground and then used a small bottle dipped into it  to get the small circle effect . That is the only mist I have used . The colour is from the paper and flowers and inked florishes abit diffferent to how Finn does it .

Hope you enjoy looking at my creations Stay safe untill next time .

Oh and there is me in the corner with my hair down well not really in a pony tail Not sure what we are all looking at . Was agreat day with a great bunch of Ladies thank you to all who attended .
Hi again how time has flown lately . I have been busy Teaching mixed Media classes ,but still had time to do some classes with Finnabair when she was in Brisbane . I really enjoyed these classes . I have a few pages I havent post here yet as I havent had time to take photos before hanging them in the shops . Poor excuse I know . I also had a problem with my eye last week my grandson poked me in the eye and it developed into an ulcer trip to two hospitals to have it treat I could see out of my eye for several days it all good now and all my sight has returned.Aynway I had a play this afternoon and made a She Art Canvas so her it is .

These canvases are so much fun to do . I love my Prima Mixed Media doll stamps they make she art so easy , with this one I have scrunched up tissue paper and glued it under the dress to make it pop up doesnt show up in photo .The shimmer isnt showing up to great either but it still looks great .
