Surf & Sand

Surf & Sand...

I just love this photo of my eldest daughter Shannon that was taken on the beach in Knysna last December and I decided to play around a little bit by myself after I did a class with Patricia Basson a few weeks ago, and Patricia opened up a whole new world of scrapping for me.

For a while now, I had lost my passion for my hobby and so I decided that I needed time for me and what I used to find so much joy in and that is when I started playing around to create this layout.

In this layout I used Blue Fern Sea Cottage patterned paper and then made my own flowers etc using my favorite designer of all times Silhouette cutting files...you ask who well Teresa Collins of course.  I just love her designs and her and couldn't wait to use her cutting files on this layout.

Now the colours didn't match so I changed the colours of the print and cut file to match my paper and this is made very easy by simply using the paint bucket icon.

Now I think I need to go play some more...don't you.

Gosh...has it been that long

Wow, I can't believe it has been that long since I last posted on my blog.

To be honest, I can't give an exact reason but lets just say "LIFE HAPPENED"...

Let me start by posting pictures of my upcoming class tomorrow at Beautiful Scrapbooks.  It's not too late to book but be sure to call 011 425-4817.

We will be doing 1 off the page project which consists of a Canvas and 2 single page layouts.

Both the Canvas and the double page layouts have techniques on them.  

We will be playing with water colour paint to create our background on the canvas.


Snippets of my canvas using water colour paint, texture paste, die cuts, chipboard, flowers and more.

I loved playing with the water colour, its my new favorite and if you join us I am sure I can convert you.


This is the 1st single page layout we will be playing with.  We will be using texture paste in a few different ways to create an eye catching background.
We will also use chipboard and All-purpose inks to colour the chipboard. 




2nd Single page that we will be doing tomorrow. This layout is using the new Fabscraps Fairy range.  

Yes, yes ... I know ... fussy cutting...but the end result is amazing.  

This layout also goes to show that you can use the beautiful paper we have to create our own embellishments.
