I'M BACK !!!!!!!! ....

Well, I'd love to say I've been sunning myself in the Maldives or skiing down a slope in Colorado....but, alas, it's none of the above.....I've just not been Blogging, I've been a very very very very bad blogger. I'm so into Instagram, Facebook and Pinterest I completely forget about poor 'ole Blogger.....sorry all you Blogsters out there.
I'm going to make up for it (hopefully) with a little project I've just done for the Jones Design Team.
I've used the Gorgeous Graphic 45 Botanical Tea papers, along with their Cardstock flowers and some yummy Kaisercraft paper blooms.


I used the Sugar and Spice Tab Album along with some background papers and mounted them on the chipboard, both sides.


I also cut a few extra bits from the card stock to make a couple of layers in the book.









Now for the front..... Firstly, I used my fav, PaperArtsy Grunge Paste through a hexagon stencil.


Then using the flower layers I spritzed them with water to help break down the fibres to enable me to screw them up.....just like this...


Once unfolded, layer them up and glue together.


Now to build up the front...using the KaiserCraft paper flowers and a few leaves made from the Cardstock.


Then add the obligatory glitter :) :)


Add some ribbon to the book rings and there you have it, I just need to pop some photos in there now....OK...who's seen my Selphy :)

WHEN IS A CHRISTMAS TREE NOT A CHRISTMAS TREE ??

When it's a dress, of course !!!!
Here I've created a little bit of art using the fabulous JOFY stamps from PaperArtsy.
There's nothing not to like about these stamps, then again that goes for all of Jo's designs, simple yet effective and versatile.... See, they're not just for Christmas ... Makes you want to look at all your stamps and 'see' other ways of using them.

Happy December everyone Marion xxx


GETTING COLOURFUL ....

I'm very fortunate that I have some fabulous friends in this industry. And although we're all incredibly busy we get to meet up every so often.
From the possie of Leandra Franich, Julie Hickey, Paula Pacual, Emma Godfrey, Jo Firth Young and Lin Brown, only three of us were able to meet last week, namely Emma and Paula, although we missed the other guys, it didn't stop us eating, chatting and playing for the day.
It started with Paula sharing some of her lovely new Tonic products.... You absolutely need the pearlescent pastes .... They're gorgeous ....
Then off to the pub for a rather satisfying lunch, then back to mine where we put Emma on the spot...'show us some art journaling......... Pleeeeease'
And of course, Emma being Emma duly obliged, so out came my PaperArtsy paints and stamps along with my stencils and inks.... After being taught step by step, I can honestly say I'm hooked.... So much so that today after the gym myself and the lovely Polly came b…
