Page Layouts

What do you do when you are on holiday from work??
You craft of course.....

I have done a couple of page layouts. Focused mostly on the detail
in the card stock adding inks stenciling and paste.
So they have a lot of texture and detail.

Also did a bit of tidying in the room and i reeally need to destash some of
my old stuff that i have had for a while and dont use to make room
for some fresh new product

Still 2 more weeks left of my time off from work so heaps of time left to

Tough life

Another Mixed Media

The mixed media bug has well and truly bitten me, I fine myself making a page everyday,
I really do enjoy it. 

I try to do something different each time but my knowledge is very limited at the moment

I have also set myself a goal of getting back into scrapbooking  more this year as i
rarely do it if at all.

I have also been excepted onto 2 design team...will post more info soon

and then pick the paper but i need to change this as sometimes it can
be a struggle
