In starting this blog, my aim is to have a place to share my scrapbooking, card making, paintings and photos with friends and rellies. Hopefully it will inspire me to produce more....LOL. Welcome!

Inspiration Wednesday 7...another week finished.

I used some old Basic Grey paper on the left hand side and painted the tree on it. I made my own text stencil and used a portion of Kipling's "If". The brown paper on the right hand side is part of a shopping bag from my Irish trip in 2012. So loving all these pages....and another video comes out tonight!!

Inspiration Wednesday 6

I loved doing this one....I used similar colours to Donna but her shapes were more like trees. I could see poppies they became and I added a poppy to the inclusion. The inclusion is my favourite part of this spread.

Here is a close up of the inclusion.

Inspiration Wednesday catch up!

I have been a bit slack in the blogging department lately. Loving Inspiration Wednesday so much! Here is IW#3....very busy and chaotic but such fun to do.

My IW#4. I am very happy with this the colours and textures and the stamps I used.

IW#5. Donna did birds with this one and I decided to do houses. Doing the texture of the grass with string and texture paste was fun. It is quite thick and took ages to dry!

I thought it was finished but decided to grunge it up a bit and also added a stamp.
