Little Mermaid


Today I have another layout to show you all.  This is a pic of our trip to Disney Land a couple of years ago... (doesn't seem that long ago - but it was 2015!)

At the time and still, Mermaid's are of of Ruby's favourite things! So imagine if you can how excited she was when The Little Mermaid came around in the Disney parade!!

I'm still having a great time with my Lindy's Stamp Gang, Starbursts and Magicals and Moon shadows. I was so happy when my package came in the mail last week! Anyway, so I've used those and I also have some transparent texture paste which is important (so I found out thanks to the lovely ladies at Lindy's Creative Gang on Facebook) to stop the paper curling and warping heaps, and yep it worked great :-)

I've used a bucket load of stuff to create this page so here is the list:

Ranger Texture Paste - transparent
Chromacryl Texture Paste - white
Dina Wakley Acrylic Paint - Black
Gansai Tambi - water colour paints - Starry Colours
Kaiser Craft Stencil - Leaves
Dylusions stamp - inbetweenies
Kaiser Craft Stamp - Script
Dies: Memory Box - Bubbles and Flourish. Tim Holtz - Typecast and Leaves
Ranger Archival Ink - Jet Black
Chipboard - Bubbles
Mini glass bottle, linen thread, anchor charm, shells, and Pearls
Lindy's Stamp Gang Starbursts - Sweet Violet purple teal, Frosted Purple Iris, French Lilac Violet, Delphinium Turquoise, Glory of the seas gold, Bachelor Button Blue. Moon Shadow - Peg Leg Pete Purple. Magicals - Dark Chocolate Truffle.

Art - because I said so!

 Hey There...

Today I have another scrapbook layout, but this one is a little different. I totally ventured into Mixed Media for this one... and it is a little bit messy but its Art.... why? because I said it was LOL

This photo is of our new kitten, Bonnie. She is a British Short hair and she is completely Blue! We love her, she is just so cute, funny and unlike any other cat I've ever had! She is also just a wee bit naughty too!

So I really don't know what I am doing with Mixed Media Art, but I am learning and making a bunch of mistakes at the same time. Its all good though and heaps of fun! 

I thought I would be brave and enter my layout into a couple of challenges. The first one is 
Mixed Media Place. and this is the mood board for my inspiration.

So I guess my inspiration came from the blue water, the soft grey, white shoes with the cut outs and dark blue, with a little green and pink sprinkled. to find out more about the Mixed Media Place challenge click on the link!

The next challenge I want to enter is Lindy's Stamp Gang April colour challenge - lucky me but these two challenges seem to work together!!  This is Lindy's Stamp Gang colour challenge and you can find all the information about it by clicking on the links!

I don't have a lot of pink or green in my layout but the other colours are there:-) To follow the rules of the challenge here are some links to the Lindy's Stamp Gang store with some of the products I used to create my work.

Wow... that's a lot of blue, and pretty much the only colour I have in sprays lol except for a couple of pinks and a purple. I do have all the new magical shakers though.... so pretty!

Here is a list of the others bits and bobs I used to create my page:

Finnabair Art Basics - Modeling Paste in Opaque Matt
Finnabair Art Ingredients Micro beads - Black
Nuvo Embellishment Mousse - Indian Gold
Nuvo Crystal Drops - Navy Blue 
Dina Wakley Media Acrylic Paint - Night
Dina Wakley Media Stencil - Big Leafy
Dylusions Ink Spray - White Linen
Cosmic Shimmer - Diamond Frost
Blue Fern Studios Chipboard - Diamonds
Scrapmatts chipboard - cat and title
