Monday 30 January 2023


Morning, I know I know, you must be getting sick of seeing this 49  & Market collection ARToptions Plum Grove and these fairy photos but they honestly just work with each other and I really have to document the last ever bookweek. 

I spent 12 weeks creating everything for this costume, from twisting 80 metres of wire to make the frame of the wings, then gluing the cello wrap..... then of course the bling on all sides of the wings which mean there were over 10 thousand, YES over I said thousand rhinestones all individually stuck on the wings. 

Thats not including over the ten metres of tulle hand dyed to the right colour, then hand sewing the floral spray over the front.

400 small orange flowers also sewn throughout the tulle layers finished off with coarse with green and clear rhinestones, also individually glued on the skirt. 

Not to mention the tights..... Yes I know I am insane but it was totally worth it to see her face as she started getting her make up done and hair in the morning, thank you Miss Nae for your amazing work that morning. 

So yes it was worth going all out for her last ever bookweek.

49  & Market collection ARToptions Plum Grove - papers, washi tape, rubons, diecuts, chipboard,
49 & Market Art Spectrum Rubons, sequins, and rhinestones.

So while I reminisce some more, have a creative day

Pure Happiness

       Good afternoon, how are you? I have to say I am a little bit tired because I had an amazing night and day and I suppose early morning scrapping away with my scrap girls which is exactly what was needed that was for sure, I even managed to even get a little bit creative this morning and managed to bang out a layout before lunch, maybe I need to be a little bit more sleep deprived and work on some layouts. 

I think it works because it stops the over thinking and allow you to just do...

49 and Market Art Spectrum Washi tape, tags, die cuts, chipboard, 

Till tomorrow have creative day

This Makes My Soul Happy with Dusty Attic

 Good afternoon how are you all? ohhhh I am running a bit late with my post today for Dusty Attic, but I have to say the layout was one of those that evolved into something that I couldnt have imagined.... dont you just love those types of scrapping?

So I was inspired by the double sketch and I wanted to work off the back of my sample for the amazing sketch as I had more photos and I wanted to focus on the journaling and the little story behind making my daughters final book week costume (plus I really loved the back side of the paper and didnt want to waste it). 

So my though was to work off the NEW Dusty Attic sketch and make it interactive to allow more photos and journaling.

So here is a reminder of this months sketch.....

and here is what the first side looks like.....

 And here is the interactive layout....

#25/365 & #26/365
