Latest project .............

I had a notion the other day ... along with some inspiration to create myself something.
I found this 8"x8" canvas in our local $2.00 shop and thought I could do something with it.
I decided not to use the canvas in the traditional way ...... but flipped it over and used the back as a 'shadow box' type effect.
I found some gorgeous paper by PRIMA which had butterflies & the colour blue on it {from Pastiche Collection - 'Quirky'} & just knew I HAD to use that!!!  I covered the canvas with newspaper print bags, then added my pattern paper, found a photo to include and finished it off with beaded ribbon & trim and a Tim Holtz metal clock face.I distressed the edges with 'Walnut Stain' Distress Ink and Mod Podged the whole canvas.

I hope you like & get inspired to creat your very own.
Cheers for now.
luv me xxooxx

Just playing around ....

Welcome Bloggers & thanks for checking in on my blog.
I had a wonderful weekend after being sick all week. I stayed inside with the warmth of my wood fire keeping me toasty. I was able to get the creative juices flowing and create some new kits that will be available for sale at PINK PIXIE Craft Supplies. These kits are designed for you to take home and make up. There are page layouts and card packs for you to complete. Check out what I designed & let me know what you think of them. This kit contains material to produce 6 beautiful cards with left overs for more.
 This layout is in beautiful autumn colours.
 This is a bright & funky layout that would be great for a party shot or cheeky kids shot ... hee hee.
 This layout is suited for any photo but I do like it for my pic of Joe.
 Lastly there is this cute little set of 6 notecards. Cute girlie colours that would look fantastic on anyon'es gift or just because.
So there you have it .... my weekends work. Hope you like.

Cheers for now.
luv me xxooxx
