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

Autumn Escape = Taupo

3 Days away at a craft retreat =  Heaven

6 classes over 2 days and the 3rd day as rest

Our tutors for the weekend were 
Vicki Boutin
Lowri McNabb
Jane Tregenza

Such talented ladies and their knowledge of craft is priceless. Loved it so much. Here are some of my projects that were completed

Roll on 2017 so we can do it all over again


Weekend Away

What a fantastic weekend. My girlfriends and i went away to a retreat in a town about 
4 hours away. ....And we hit the ground running. 
6 classes spread over 2 days and the 3rd day was rest (needed it too)
The run a shop at the retreat so of course i dd a little bit of shopping
He is what i came up with, I had bought the Dylusions Journal  and this is the first

Colours are a little brighter in life. The paints and stencils i used i also 
purchased at the retreat. 

Sometimes it nice to sit down and get messy

A friend card

This one came together really nice and simple. I always colour my image first
and then pick the paper but i need to change this as sometimes it can
be a struggle

So her she is ..... So pleased with how her hair turned out

A little close up of the image

And some of the embellishments

Love when it all comes together

Craft Retreat

Doesnt seem that long ago that we were at Autumn Escape in Taupo but its been a year

So here are my 4 i came up with

So looking forward to receiving 4 new ones, I really love looking at other peoples creations


Mixed Media

For the last 6 months  or so my girlfriends and i have been going along to a mixed media
class held at a local scrapbooking store. We learn mainly Technics and how different
products work. 

I struggle a bit with mixed media as i feel its not controlled enough. I like things lined
up and planned, where this seems a little more laid back and free.
I have given it a go anyway and came up with this canvas. Its not what i 
had in my head and it somehow doesnt sit right with me

But hey i can only learn and move on and up.......Hopefully the first
of many

Watch this space as i try and try again
