My first official OTRS post!

Happy Good Friday friends!

It's the start of the long weekend for many of us, so if you've some time on your hand why come by Off The Rails Scrapbooking and check out the challenge for this round?

The rule is to use the following sketch and colour palette:

Lovely colours for Spring aren't they!
And here's my take on it:

Some close ups:

Using a title chippie from Blue Fern Studios. Beneath is the cherry blossom stencil from The Crafters' Workshop.  I applied texture paste over and painted on the flowers and leaves using paints from 13@rts.

Love this little bicycle which I altered by mixing two different colored EPs from Lindy's Stamp Gang.

The Shabby brick bits from BFS, which I left bare as the earthy colour complemented the floral colours.

The prize for this challenge is a $15 voucher from Flourish with a Bling, so remember to visit the blog for inspiration from the rest of the DT and take part!

I shall be seeing you very soon!

You Shine - for Green Tara

Hello friends, so glad to be back to share a layout I did for Green Tara
I missed a post in March because the boys and myself were sick, so there was plenty of catching up to do.

I used gorgeous papers from Blue Fern Gardens for this. The rose lattice and envelope motifs were fussy cut out and used for layering. I used plenty of Lindy's Stamp Gang mists and Shimmerz Dazzlers in the background. 

A white lace from Green Tara and the title chippie from Blue Fern Studios. For the butterfly metal piece, I brushed on some gold paint from 13@rts.

Some exciting news!

Good day friends!
How are you this weekend?

Well, I'm just bursting to the seams with excitement and here's why:

I'll be teaching my first overseas class in Perth! It will be held on 10 May (Saturday) and I'll be teaching some basic mixed media techniques, and using these techniques to create a reverse canvas for displaying those lovely photos. So if you're in the neighbourhood, drop by and join me for a fun-filled afternoon!

And the second exciting thing is that I've finally set up a Facebook page for my crafts and classes. It's been a long time coming and I now have my blog, the FB page and the YouTube channel all re-named as the Art Medium. This will be where I'll be advertising classes, updating news and happening so make sure you go check it out here! I was so overwhelmed by the response from friends and the good news is, there will be a little giveaway soon. So make sure you check out the FB page to see how you can win yourself a little something.

That's all I have for now, I'll be back in a couple of days with some new work to show you. Until then, happy crafting!
