White with One December .

This month WW1 goes all greyscale on us,as the colour feature is  Paloma ..
Don't you love how I've used my photo just to add a little colour to my piece ?
Yes , I was feeling a little artistically colourless.
I wonder how you interpret this months challenge.
 Product sponsor this month is the gorgeous Charm and her funky felt pieces.

Fly Me to the Moon

Salutations Bloggers .
Seems so long between posts. 
Although the month has flashed by ,
I have been able to fit in a few pieces of arty scrapy goodness to keep me sane ,
 oh and a rad retreat as well.
but first lets go back to my last post and the Gauche Moon challenge.
*see the post below for the moodboard. 
Here is my spin on it .
A faux leather journal .
You can head on over to Gauche to check out the process of turning 
cardstock into a leather like paper product .woot 
Of course , brown doesn't float my boat, so I went with a black and white .

 another layout using a photo from camp mojo.
no need to explain, im sure you get who i am :) 

I seem to be creating so much more with mixed media , an outdoor painting area was needed.
This table is definitely getting a good workout atm.( thanks P.C.)

A Little Country Charm

Last Months Gauche Alchemy challenge was a little out of my 
comfort zone .Country Charm is not my homeland for inspiration,
and the mood board at first threw me off,all that leather and Brooooown :(
But once I honed in on the smaller images I found my inspiration.
I started with some texture using an old plastic placemat and textured paste ,
 added some of the gorgeous turquoise and white paint, then some inca gold in silver to highlight those lush textured patterns .
Out came some natural materials,hessian,muslin,natural ribbon
 plus a few metal elements and this baby fell together . 

This months Gauche Alchemy Challenge invites you to the Moon.
What inspiration do you see when you view this "Lunar" mood board?
I see NO colour :):):):)  A real challenge! :) :) :) this will be fun .
Don't forget to pop over to Gauche to check out the Alchemists Lunar pieces,
Unveiling all month for all artists out there to be inspired.

Seriously...... Important to my Happiness

Sharing a few more classic photos from Camp Mojo through layouts .
BIG LOVE to the amazing woman whom I was lucky enough to have shared the weekend with .
Here's an Saturday night photo of our gorgeous Eb, Seriously ,rocking the 80's look...

 and to these lovely women ,I'm a big fan of their heART and craft.
I love this photo , beautiful light and smiles, and connecting ladies from across the country .
its really a special image to me and I will tell you why.
Prior to this photo being taken Nicole ,Peg and I were discussing meeting
 our scraping inspirations in real life.
We always have people in the community that give us a wow moment, when we meet them,whether its because we have admired work previously, or that you have see their name for so long.
I seriously get that moment everytime I meet my scrap sistas at retreats, 
for their passion to their art and craft,
 for making the effort to travel, sometimes great distances to connect,
 and for accepting this boisterous happy scrapper for exactly who I am.
This page celebrates that connection .

It Is What It Is.

                                                        A little art journal page to share .
