mini houses take 2

I posted this some time ago, but here is another look at it as everyone was asking me how small was it really. Hope this pic gives some more detail!

Packing has begun!

For those that are not yet aware, I am moving back to Melbourne after 2 wonderful years in Perth. We have absolutely loved living here and will be sad to leave. There are many things I will miss about Perth, but mostly the friends we have made while being here and the warmer weather!

OK so the packing has officially started for our move to Melbourne and as you can see I have packed most of the stuff in my scrapping desk.
There won't be many entries from me as we pack and prepare for our move. We will be enjoying a holiday along the way which will be a well earned break! We arrive in Melbourne late September, so you'll have to patient for some new stuff from me until shortly after then (I am sure I will be in MEGA withdrawal after agreeing not to take scrapping stuff with me on our move) so shouldn't take me long to get some new stuff happening!

I do have some things on my camera to share, so there may be the odd entry from me, but they will not be regular, so may be best to subscribe to my blog via the 'get e-mail updates'. This will mean that you get an e-mail from my blog when I update it. I don't get your e-mail address or anything (or know that you have subscribed), but I guess 'blogger' does it somehow.... Very handy to save checking the blog everyday for the possibility of 'something' being updated.

Engagement Album

I made this album the other week using the range of paper by Creative Imaginations 'Narratives' for Tomorrow's Memories to display in the shop. I knew it would go perfectly with my engagement photos which was about 3 years ago. So finally another album done.
I didn't want too many photos in there, so I used the index photos which captured some of our family and friends on the day. I have had this Kaiser scalloped album for a while, and wanted to use it on 'just the right project', and I think I found it. I also used a Hambley screen print I won a couple of months ago in a pack at a TM moonlight.

I pick up things and put them aside for one day when I might like to use them on a project. I love how this all came to together, with the combination of new and old!

I was asked to make up a canvas for Tomorrow's Memories in 'my style' which would go up in the shop to display the design team members. I actually found this really challenging when I started, so left it for a few days. I didn't like what I had done at first, and the beauty of working with canvas is that you can just simply paint over it..... Which I did!!!

When I came back to working on the canvas, it all just came together. You could slightly see the flowers I had started with, but this added a great dimension to it. I really enjoyed doing this one, and used some Twiddleybitz borders as the main feature (oh and some flowers and bling, wouldn't be my 'style' without those!!).

Remember, don't be afraid to pain't over something if at first you are not happy with it, it may form part of a really cool background.
