I hope you are all enjoying the Australia Day crop over at Scrapping Clearly this week. I have still a few of the challenges to go & thought I would share my process for Challenge 6 - Cuisine. Now we are lovers of brownies ... so we like to think this is our fave Aussie food... bit partial to lamb too ... but I took the sweet option to document instead as it was a little more fun and playful to scrap.

Scrappingclearly Cyber Crop
Hello SC fans!
Have you been enjoying all the TN Thursday inspiration?! Some incredible projects are being shared!
Rather than weekly, I am joining in once a month. My theme will be to choose a word to focus on for each month.
And rather than a Travelers Notebook, I am using a Tag book.
Today I will share my book, as well as my inspiration for January from Kylie's prompts.
My Tag book
I taped together enough Tab Tags for 12 months of the year. These Studio Light - World Watercolor Tags by Art by Marlene are awesome. After taping together, I applied a coat of Gesso to each page (mostly to cover the tape).
To decorate my front and back cover I used:
- Liquitex Inks - I used Magenta, Prussian Blue and White.
- Dina Wakley Media Collage Tissue Paper - Text Collage
- Dina Wakley Media - Stencil - Done is Better
To colour the cover, I used a wide brush, to brush the pink and blue inks onto the tag.
Once dry, I droppered more ink onto the cover, (Including adding white this time) and used the air puffer tool to blow the ink around.
Plus I added some white splatters of the ink.
Here is the front!
For the front, I ripped and scrunched some Dina Wakley tissue paper and glued it down.
And I selected a quote from the Dina Wakley Media - Stencil - Done is Better and stenciled it on with some white modeling paste.
Finished with some white and black pen doodling!
Now for my January inspiration and word: OPTIMISM
The January TN prompts I used were: Stencils/texture; Inks and transfers.
The products in store were:
- STENCIL: Tim Holtz - Stencil
- INKS: Distress Oxides Ink Pads
- TRANSFERS: Dress My Craft - Transfer Me - Queen Birds
Thanks for looking!

hi everyone and happy crafting Tuesday.
I woke up dreaming of modelling paste and embossing folders.
This is the result.
I started with a Bee Arty 365 Interwoven stencil and some Distress Oxide - Salty Ocean.
Then a layer of modelling paste roughly spread with a spatula. I then pressed in the emboss side of a couple of folders into the paste. In my dream I also used an empty toilet roll but forgot about that until now!
I then inked the folder with some more Distress Oxide (Peacock Feathers) and used it as a stamp.
Another stencil Donna Downey and more Distress Ink (Weathered wood).
I coloured some muslin with Tattered Angled Glimmer chalkboard (Cornflower Daze) and Distress spray (Ripe persimmon).
I also added some flairs, wood veneer circles (coloured with a Posca pen), washi, diecuts and left over alphas for my title.

It's Thursday, and that means it's TN Thursday here at Scrapping Clearly.
I decided to bite the TN bullet and join in the prompt this week.
This weeks prompt is Transfer. I love a transfer. So I played.
I went with a vintage retro vibe. I used some beautiful 'Dress my Craft' Transfers over layers of book paper and a mix of Tim Holtz design tape and Prima decorative tapes.
These were all adhered down with a Matte Gel medium. You can see this all come together in my video.
The colours in the background are made with a mix of different Distress Crayons, and I also used a gorgeous stencil from Tim Holtz with some Finnabair Jewel paste in Sparkling Onyx. It added to the vintage feel.
I used another transfer that I made into a couple of tags to feature on the left page of the journal. And again added a little colour to the tags with the crayons.
It was so cool to play with transfers that really blended into the background and looked like the pages of a vintage book. Kylie has a great variety of styles too.
I hope you enjoy the process video.
And I can't wait to see all your journals with this weeks prompt.
See you all soon, stay safe, Em xx
