Masters projects 3 & 4.

Finally, back again after quite a while! No excuses, just life in general has been way too hectic for my liking. But hey, I am here, and I am keen to get the rest of my Masters entries out of the way so I can start to show something new!
So here goes!
Firstly a layout with the journalling as the focus:

This is the page where I knew what look I was going for but did not quite "get" what i wanted and did not have the energy or the time to redo!! Yes it was a little bit of a disappointment really, but hey what is done is done!

We might just skim over the details with this one, LOL! 
I used a Scrap FX stamp spot set that I love and a few left over bits and pieces to finish off the journalling section.

The chippies all got the rough embossing treatment that I love then I gave them all a spray with the colour I was using on the background.
Now for the last project we had to do a journal cover. I have done a lot of these in the past and really love doing them, this one is called "Perfectly Imperfect" as I will use it as a "junky" art journal where I will experiment with new techniques!

A lot of texture in the background using molding paste and the squares and circles stencil
 by Scrap FX. Then I went a little crazy with some ink and colour sprays, shadowed a few "edges" of the texture with a charcoal pencil to make them pop.

The title and other chippies are also Scrap FX but the leaves are metal and I have added some embossing enamel to them to give that worn effect and a little bit of gold!

The title chipboard is treated with an embossing enamel by Stampendous, just cannot keep away from the lovely course powder!
Sprinkled a few sequins around and embossed the edges with the same enamel to tie it all together then finished it off with some dots from a pearl pen.
So there you go I am done and I am ready to get creating for 2015, it's almost March already and I really do not know where that first little bit of the year has gone!!
Bye my Friends Hugs for the love!
 Much appreciated in advance!!
Stay Happy everyone!


  1. Well, I'd be happy with that top page!!! And SBM must've thought it was ok!!! Really LOOOVE your journal cover - that embossing is yum!!!

    1. Thanks Lizzy, your comments are always so appreciated!

  2. I love both these projects!!!! Your layout looks fantastic I'd be proud of it but I do know what you mean when you a have a vision for a project and it doesn't turn out how you want it's hard to be 100% happy with it. The texture and colours on the journal cover are gorgeous.
