Her Beautiful Life

I was very lucky to recently spend some time retreating with Charm
she such a wonderful creative ,
and before I left she shared a couple of her photos with me..:) :)
I have a real need to share my craft and scrap pages for others and I was stoked how beautifully this photo worked with this background. I never scrap a background for a particular photo. In fact I just create layout backgrounds and then throw a few photos onto the pages and see what works.
Im loving the end result .

Luv Her

For her courage to do her own thing.
For the inspiration she shares with others.
For the calm energy she radiates.
For the hugs she gives that mean more than a hug.
Because she is the my friend.

 I feel there is a little something special about this piece,for so many reasons .
The way it came together, the colour selection,the perfect photograph,the rad CWS stencil ,the uber cool new release chippie from Words Or Whatever,Charms groovy felt star and the sentiment of the words. 
Sometimes I have to remember the I am MORE than I think I am and so are you !

 dining on delicious meals 
 and creating some scrap pages for special people.

what a superb weekend of scrappy arty fun .

Scrap The Girls - fun with house paint

Scrap The Girls March
There is a sketch challenge over at STG this month,make sure you check it out .
I have pulled out a photo that must be 8 years plus old,the girls with their lifelong friend Taylah.
 I have some tester house paint pots that I love to use because the paint is so fluid, it drips and flows like no other medium .So after creating the background with a stencil, mists and a little gesso,
I have placed the photo down and covered the image with a piece of scrap paper, then using the back end of a small paint brush one drips the paint in a circular movement to create the circle.
 Drying in between colours is important for me ,because I want black and white not grey.
Have you tried using house paint in your layouts? or any other non tradional items.?
