At last, finished projects!

As promised, I have been clicking away and taking lots of photos of my most recent projects!
To start, here are the canvases I made to pretty up my loungeroom.
I am very happy with how they turned out.

I have used lots of natural textures that suit the farm feel of the photo and our lifestyle.  Dried grass from the paddock,hessian, raffia, snippets of green, a leaf and even a little bee is peeking out.

Again, in keeping with the the natural theme I have used calico to make my own flowers on a branch from the yard, raffia, a Bo Bunny flower, pins and a little dragonfly is hiding. 

I used impasto medium as the base for both canvases to add some texture. I love how they turned out!

Just finished my layout for Scrapbook Challenges, sketch 239

Have been meaning to scrap these photos of my Nan and Pa's wedding day for ages, and finally found a sketch I LOVE! My new Tim Holtz tickets came in handy, and some little frames I picked up from the op-shop and a beautiful button finish it off nicely.

Finished my December Kraft it up challenge, a Christmas layout using non-traditional colours.

I love using stiching and haby on my layouts - can you tell?- and thought the dress pattern looked cool on everyone elses layout, so why not? The buzz and bloom alphas are great, I paint them, glitter them, ink them, use them raw etc.

And following are just a couple of layouts I have finished in the last couple of weeks.

 Using Fat Cat Scrappin' January kit matched perfectly for my layout about Book Week last year.

Another kraft it up challenge, altering the edges of my layout. Love grunge, its my excuse to by myself: messy!

My baby broke his arm a while ago, definately needs to be documented.

So many more to post, but I am out of time. Don't forget to check out the Jindivick flower and craft show on the last weekend in February and the Warragul Show, first weekend in March.
