For "The Scrapbook Store"
A Rainbow of Dylusion Sprays
"A Tribute to Pink"

Hi there peeps, thanks for calling by.
Today I have another VIDEO TUTORIAL to share with you.
I have created this layout based on the December Sketch Challenge
as part of my DT work for The Scrapbook Store.

Click here to view video

Hope you take the time to watch my video & maybe you
 might like to SUBSCRIBE to my channel while you are there,
 that way you won't miss the next one.


Hopefully  you can find some time to join in the challenge
& maybe win a $40 store voucher for your trouble.
Click HERE to see the challenge.

I decided to use this pic I found on the internet of "Pink". She is such
a beautiful woman & a great role model to young women too.
She is beautiful, smart, successful, strong in both mind & body & a
 great mother to her little girl.

I have used Dylusion sprays to create my background, as you will see in my video.
They are so much fun to work with.

I have also used lots of my favourite 2Crafty Chipboard too.

I love this little quote I have used, it says a lot about her I think.

Lots of yummy stamping too.

Bright colours, black chippies & some flowers to soften it all.

Throw in a black tuille bow for a touch of femininity, & hey presto, all done.
Here is a full product list of exactly what I have used & it is all available
from The Scrapbook Store. Until next time.

My December DT Reveal For
"The Scrapbook Store"
Part One

Hi there friends. Thanks for stopping by.
Today I have part one of my December DT reveal for
"The Scrapbook Store".
I have used some papers from the Marion Smith Designs
"Romance Novel" collection.
Love this paper collection, but then again I love all
Marion Smith paper collections.
I have actually gessoed lightly over the background paper so that
the aqua pattern just lightly peeks through to create a nice subtle effect.
(All products used are available from The Scrapbook Store, scroll down for full  product list)

I have also used some cute little Momenta Word Stickers.

On the background I have also added some Doodlebug Designs Sequins
from their "Rainbow Assortment Pack".

This sweet little 2Crafty Chipboard Bicycle 
was the perfect piece to tuck in amongst the flowers. 

As always I have used lots of flowers too.
Firstly the pink ones are Petaloo - Darjeeling- Dahlias
The aqua ones were actually an off white colour & I sprayed them.
They are Dusty In Bloom - Cornsilk & all the
roses are by Green Tara.

Lots of mixed media & stamping on my background &
hey presto, all done. Thanks for visiting today.
Back in a few days time.
