Dream A Little by Emma Zappone

Hello fellow creatives.
Emma with you all today with a quick little Art Journal.
I had a heap of Art by Marlene products that I have been itching to use, so I finally sat down and created.

As I was using some Art by Marlene I chose to create in my 5.0 ABM ring album.
I love this album as I can remove the smaller sized pages and create, which adds a sense of freedom.
Then I chose a few elements from the Out of this world Paper elements pad.

These paper elements are so super cute. I wanted to keep the background simple yet effective so I started by tearing strips of ABM washi tapes and placing them in a large L shape on the page.
Then I chose to play with Distress Oxides to compliment the colours in the washi and paper elements.

I chose the new Villainous Potion colour, Cracked pistachio and Faded Jeans.
Can't go wrong with oxides. Instant colour with awesome results. Then I chose a couple of Aall & Create stamps to compliment the space theme that I had chosen.

I scribbled a few pen lines & circles and then applied my elements.
Including a little ABM sticker and quote.

I totally recommend playing with the whimsy Art by Marlene products, they really allow a youthful creativity. 

Have a great weekend everyone.

Em xx

Good Fun by Belinda Spencer

 Hi Scrapping Clearly fans!

It's Belinda here today to share my layout inspired by the December Mood Board using lots of goodies from the Scrapping Clearly store.

For this layout, I started by mounting a cropped sheet of heavy weight Marshmallow cardstock on black cardstock. I used some Prima Vintage Gold Icing Paste with a Heidi Swapp stencil to add some dots to my background.

Once the paste was dry, I spritzed on a Lindy's Stamp Gang spray. I let the colour drip down the page and also added some splats.

Next I layered some papers together. I used all Heidi Swapp papers as well as tags and a photo frame all by Heidi.

I attached a cute gold Heidi Swapp Photo Corner to my photo and added that too.

I added a Charm's Creations arrow with a bit of gold on it.

I used some Vicki Boutin Thickers quotes, title and little embellishments.

Here's what I used:
-Photo Frames
- Photo Corners
- Magnolia Jane Gold Leaf Tags


PRIMA Icing Paste Vintage Gold

LINDY'S STAMP GANG Starburst Spray Opal Sea Oats 

Black cardstock

Thanks for stopping by the blog today. I hope you can play along with the mood board this month too.

Christmas created by Tracey Thorne

Welcome to another weekend and we are getting very close to December. This means that I need to start scrapping last years photos - oops. I found this photo that I took of the succulent bowls I made for family and decided it needed a little Christmas spirit. I found some everyday papers in the Vicki Boutin 12x12 paper pad Kaleidoscope that were all kinds of Christmas & mixed them up with some papers from the Vicki Boutin colour study pad this and gave the page a beautifully busy look.

I hope you enjoy the video of the process I have shared over on the Facebook page

Here are a few of the close ups from the page.

I will be back next week with a new moodboard to play with - so until next week enjoy your weekend.

Read books make potions - Tag created by Tracey Thorne

 I had a bit of a theme going when I set myself up to scrap last week and it was making tags. This is the next one I created. I have a lot of bits and pieces floating around on my desk. Stamps that I have printed on tissue, pre stamped images etc... so this one came together beautifully using a range of AALL & Create stamps and this months moodboard colours.

To make the tag I have cut a piece of cardstock 14cm x 77cm and used a hole punch to add a hole at the top. I have then added all the base colours using Dylusions polished jade and vibrant turquoise . I have also added a splash of Distress oxide in peacock feather. Once dry I have used AALL & Create stamp #34 in two places using Ranger Archival Ink. 


The next part of the process was to add some tissue paper for texture. I have stamped the AALL & Create stamp #434 Newsprint numbers onto the tissue and then added this to the tag using some Liquitex Matte Gel medium.I have left the tissue go past the parameters of the tag instead of tearing them off flush with the edges. I have then added some extra texture using the AALL & Create stencil #39 Lotza Dotz and Liquitex modelling paste. I had a few blank spaces so I pulled out the AALL & Create stamp #396 Sewing forever and used the filigree section in those spaces.

A little black cotton was curled up before placing on some stamped medicine bottles from the AALL & Create stamp #387 Steampunk alchemist. I have coloured these using Prima Art Alchemy sparks acrylic paint in Iris Potion and a little water. One coat for the labels and a couple of extra coats for the bottle.


I have stamped and coloured this girl AALL & Create stamp #415 Good Book with water colour pencils and then added a little Glossy Accents to her eyes... love the glassy look. She was then layered over the books. I have typed up my quote before colouring and gluing in place.


This one was a lot of fun just grabbing things laying on my desk that I had pre stamped and not used on other projects. She is also super cute and ready to be added to my collection.

  I hope this has given you a little inspiration on what you can use with all those bits and pieces laying around on your desk after a big weekend of creating.

thanks for stopping by - have a great creative weeekend

Delivery, by Amanda Hartmann

Happy Wednesday friends!

Some paint, paint pens and big bunny... what is not to love?!?

I had a fun photo of my daughter with an ice-cream delivery for her birthday. And she was wearing her Oodie. The Oodie had rabbits, so I decided... let's add a rabbit! It is kinda bigger than I imagined.. but let's run with it.

I started with some smooth heavy white cardstock. And using a credit card, I swiped some acrylic paint on the background. I combined Dina Wakley Paint in Blackberry with some plain white gesso.

Before it dried, I laid the  Kaisercraft – 12 x 12 Stencil – Bubbles over the paint and wiped back some paint with a baby wipe.

Next I drew the bunny, copying the pattern from the Oodie. I started with pencil before first colouring in with a white paint pen. I added pink paint pen highlights. I finished with black paint pen - thick for the outlines and thin for some small details.

And of course.... Let's talk paint pens.... Scrapping Clearly has you covered!

Check out these pens:

I added some chipboard arts and a wood veneer ice-cream - all coloured with paint pens.

I added some random stamping and doodling, journaling and a title.

And that's it... but quirky and fun page with a rabbit! Why not I say?!
