To tell the truth I have been in a bit of a rut of late - life has a lot going on - so I have had to dig deep and really hone in on what my happy is for when I create. I have dug this photo out of my archives (my phone pics from a couple of years ago) to create with this months amazing moodboard. This moodboard is helping me find my way - it is so warm yet invigorating... if you are looking for something to spark your creative flow I urge you to give this one a crack - it has certainly helped me the last couple of weeks.
My favourite way to start a layout is with white cardstock then add a little something to that, this time I have added some Tim Holtz Distress stain in Dried Marigold & Ripe Persimmon... so in love with the depth of colour with these two together.

Hi everyone and happy crafting Tuesday!
here's what I created, inspired by this month's moodboard.
I started with some Colour Blast Paste (Sienna) through a stencil. and then using the packaging technique, added some Color Bursts powder spritzed with a little water (Cadmium Scarlet & Yellow Ochre), dried it with my heat gun (so as not to get mud) and then , Lindy's Flat Fabio (Merci Beaucoup Mint) and Dina Wakley Gloss Spray (Ocean).
I added some Arts Inc collage eye stickers, fussy cut butterflies, muslin and ribbon and some Pink Paislee chipboard butterflies which I coloured with the left over colour still on my packaging.
Thanks for looking & have a great day

Em with you on the blog today.
It's been a busy time for me of late and to add to it I have lost my crafty vibe, until now.........
So because I really just wanted to craft and get things on paper, I decided to go simple.
Minimal mixed media and lots of stamping made for a quick layout.
I even filmed it coming together, which I hope you enjoy watching.😆
Using lots of stamps on my base sheet, creating a suitable backdrop for this awesome image I found on Pinterest. I started with an Aall & Create stamp - Gears & Elements and stamped it vertically across my page. Then to add to the grunge a little more I added a few of the stamps in the Stampers Anonymous - Glitch 1 set.
I really wanted another hit of colour through the stamping across the page, so using the chevron stamp from the Aall & Create - Take Flight set and Distress Oxide - Faded Jeans for the colour added it amongst the stamping layers. This complimented the pop of yellow/orange of the image.
My final embellishments were a couple of metals, one a door knob and the other a faucet.
Finally a couple of quotes from the Tim Holtz - small talk stickers.
And that was this layout complete.
I stood back.....and felt relieved to create and happy with the final result.
I hope it has inspired you to create, and if you feel stuck just to try something simple and easy. There is no shame in that, just feel good about creating!
Happy crafting everyone.
