Memory Maze & a New baby

"New baby princess"

A cute little new baby girl card. I used a shimmery paper to make both the card and envelope.
MM Babies pram has been painted with gesso then light pink embossing powder added to the main part and glitter embossing powder added to the rest so it all glitters and shines.

I tinted some texture paste pink and used the MM hearts stencil.

I added some glitter embossing powder to the hearts to act like a little reflection.

MM flowers, I also added glitter embossing powder to the tips of the flowers.

Memory Maze & First Days

Hello, today marks this very first day of our new Design Team. 
I hope they will be able to inspire and amaze you with their skills and designs

"First Day of Pre-school"

Keeping with our Feb school theme here is my youngest daughter on her first day of pre-school. We were lucky enough that the pre-school recorded the day and printed it out as a flyer, so I cut out the photos and description and created a page.

Using some single film strips I coloured each one in a metallic paint.

I didn't want a lot of detail in my tree so I turned a swirly tree upside down

First day at prep title however I have cut the word prep off as it didn't suit.

Using a MM stencil to create splotches around the page to represent the mess little kids make with paint

Lots of MM flowers have been used through out the layout.

I have been admiring these gorgeous clocks for some time now but never ventured, recently while at Kmart I found some little clocks they fit in your hand and were clearing them out for a couple of $$ each but they were bright blue with cars lol.

"Cherished Clock"

I gutted the entire thing and pulled it completely apart so I could work on the body and bell tops only leaving all the silver metal as is.

I love these small heirloom flowers they have got to be my fav fabric flower from GT

My gorgeous 2yr old gave me a story on these eggs while I was creating, she crept up to me and said Shhhh baby sleeping lol, then she proceeded to tell me they would go crack crack, ahh the sweet innocence of little kids. Once I had finished I showed her and said look they went crack crack and out came a baby bird, her jaw dropped and she just smiled and said cute lol.

More gorgeous blooms fill the inside of the clock along with some gold stamens.

Chipboard clock coated in more GT blooms including cherry blossoms and roses.

A gorgeous   flower tucked behind the banner.

Some pearl trim was added around the top.

The outside of the clock was first given a few coats of gesso, then texture paste added here and there, once dry white crackle paint was also added here and there. The lots of spray inks were used to create the colours.
