Simple Pleasures

Here is a mixed media canvas I worked on during the school holidays. I seem to be drawn to flowers and often use them in my art whether I am using watercolours, canvases or scrapbooking. This canvas was created while taking a class from Revlie. Her blog is called REVolution and there is a free mixed media canvas tutorial to enjoy there! I love her Etsy shop and purchased a PDF mixed media class... this was the result! If you have the time, please take a look as she has the most gorgeous art, postcards and journals there! The canvas says "Simple Pleasures" and it reminds me that the small, precious moments are often the most important! This canvas is now sitting on my desk at work. Thanks for stopping by! xxx

Twinkling H2O's

I was lucky enough to find a few Twinkling H2O's at my local art and craft supply store and Cameron bought me some watercolour paper on a board backing. I love the vibrancy of the twinks and can't wait to expand my collection! I am still deciding whether I should add some more line work and doodling with my black and white pens.

Our Tropical Girl

I wanted to share a layout I did of CJ. We were on holidays on the Gold Coast and the girls loved playing and swimming in the resort pool. I love this photo, CJ's smile and the way the sun glistens on the water... I just had to scrap it! Thanks for stopping by! xxx

This cute house is part of the Christy Tomlinson Creative Colour Workshop I enjoyed at the end of last year. The house is backed onto corrugated cardboard and Prima scrapbooking paper. I had fun with Kaiser rubons and various stamps. I like the little stamped birdy on the right hand side. The quote says "Live the life you imagine" and that's exactly what I want to do this year! Thanks for stopping by! xxx
