Hotel Hell projects

I am proud it say I have become a new designer with Kyrsty Scrapbook Designs. A talented digital kit designer who sells her kits through Deviant Scrap. I will be working on more mixed media projects for her as there are far more talented designers on her team that make amazing digital scrapbook pages.

        My first kit is a very spooky one and part of a collaboration of 15 of the Deviant Scrap designers. Here is the kit I worked with.

This is a little treat bag I made using the backing papers and some of the elements in the kit
and here is my collage using the wonderful skull and some of the other elements in the kit too

Keisercraft Needle and thread scrapbook layout

My Mum has always enjoyed cloths and as a young woman went to evening classes to learn dress making. I have lots of old photos of her in her latest outfit so the new papers from Keisercraft were perfect for a layout using some of the photos.

I used one of the 12x12 papers as the background
Then some of the Collectables, which are chipboard pieces, to frame the photos.
The Tim Holtz alterations die Sewing room just went perfectly with it, more collectables were used here too.
Then of course I had to add some hand stitching as a finishing touch.
All these products can be bought from The Fruit Pixie online shop.

Keisercraft Needle and thread tin lid tag

I have been known in my family for years now for using tin lids as decorations on my Christmas tree. They are great surfaces to decorate and make lovely tags and decorations.

    Here is one I have made for the Fruit Pixie online shop using the Keisercraft  Needle and Thread collection collectables available from The Fruit Pixie online shop.

AJC Port of call 8 Greece page

I can't believe how quickly this year is going, we are almost at the end of Port of call 8 on the Art Journal Caravan. This month, August, we have been in Greece.

     As I used to be a nurse I immediately thought of Hippocraes and the Hippocratic oath. With out him where would we be today?

        So here is my Hybrid mixed media page. I used a transfer technique to transfer the oath in Greek onto the page and the Greek key borders are from a stencil cut by my fair hand. The background is painted like marble using acrylic paint.
