Sawyers Place New Line

Hi All,
Have been playing with a new line of sticky paper from Sawyers Place, it is all lime and teal gorgeouseness! It has a peacock theme that I have a bit off a soft spot for, so I found lots in my stash to complement the theme, including that wonderful peacock stencil from Scrap FX that I cannot keep my hands off!
Here is the collection that includes some yommo Flairs!

And here is what I have done with it so far:

I used the peacock sticky paper and Flair and also the coordinating washi in Teal. The stencil coordinated perfectly as well as that new flourish and Midi word from Scrap FX.

The photo is of my awesome nieces who I miss so much, as they live in a far away land!!! So I treasure the photos I receive!

Lastly I made a card for my sons birthday I am feeling old as he turned into a typical teen overnight! Yes I now have 2 teens in Da House (13 &15) Arrgghhh!

That is about all I have been doing so far this month have a lot going on for next month and will try and post it all here!!
Stay tuned lovely people!

Scrap FX Goodies for July

Welcome to July!
This month I have been playing with some very cool stencils and a new line of chippies called “Midis” from Scrap FX.
The stencils are awesome and come in a variety of sizes to suit everyones needs!
You have already seen this Layout that I used this Random dots stencil on from a sketch challenge last month!

There are a ton of other designs in this size and others even smaller for ease of use. I used this whirl pools stencil on a page for the Around the world sketch:
Whirlpools stencil
So that is enough revision lets get onto the latest creations and my most favourite stencil of them all: The peacock feather!!
 This is a “must have” and I admit I adore it and have used it here in my art journal using some pearl texture paste:

Isn't it just glorious???? Here is the full page.
Then we come to my favourite for texture in a hexagonal design:
Hexagonal Pattern stencil
I have used it here to create texture on another art journal page, love experimenting with all the new products this way!

I could go on and on about the new stencils, they are just awesome to use.
I find them a little thicker than most so this allows you to add more texture to your projects…. so check all the new designs yourself here on the website.
But wait there is more!
I have been playing around with the new Graffiti alphabet and new words called Midis.
Graffiti Alphabet
 happiness, midi
memories, midi
beautiful, midi
These are smaller than most of the wordlets but not as small as the theme pack words, hence their name “Midis”!
You could use them in any way you see fit , as part of a longer title or even adding them to the journalling on your page, and as for those in the grip of Project Life?
Well they are perfect!!
I have used one here as part of my title as well as a cute new chevron stencil:

I really love how this one turned out, even happier with the way the watch pieces I discovered in a junk sale worked with the spinners!!!

So that is about all for now off to play some more!!
Happy days!

Guest Designer at Scrap Friends!

Yay, I played with the new sketch over at Scrap Friends as a guest Designer!
 Here is the awesome new sketch:

And here is what I did with it: (I decided to try and use some very bad photos that really did remind us all of a great summer!)

Got a little carried away I know very full on!! But that seems to be the way I roll of late!
I have used a Scrap FX title and some arrows that I just adore!

Just having so much fun with sketches lately! 
Till next time thanks for dropping by,
