What I've been doing........

Well I know it's been awhile and even though I haven't been blogging I have still been doing art....... Mix media type art..... Lots of great classes at Scrapbook Fantasies and some other great online ones....... This is some of the work I've been doing.......
I love this flower..... The idea is off Pinterest but with only a picture to go from the background layers were ideas that had come from doing lots of classes both online and with Alicia 
This is a class from Life Book..... What a great online course...... I have not got to all the classes yet but I am slowly working my way through them.

Well that's all I've got for you now please feel free to follow me and have a great day.........

OMG - it's been a while.........

Hello everyone out there in blog land....... It's been a while and life has been getting in the way of art....... So much has happened in the last 18 months...... And a few times, art has had to take a step back.....

I have become a cub leader and in January next year I am off to the Australian Scout Jamboree in Sydney....... Such an amazing time.

I have been playing with lots of mixed media art and using different types paper and mediums. There will be photos to come but for now let me tell you about my lastest art outlet.


Yes I have become a planner girl, it's true. I have been doing some on-line classes with Christy Tomlinson. All I can say is WOW....... It has opened up a whole new world to me that can only be for good as my life gets busier.

Now for the reason for this blog post........

To go to Jamboree I wanted to journal my trip as I went and one of Christy's classes showed me how I could. So I set about making myself a midori planner and some books to put in it.

Then I made a dashboard for my section that I wanted to use for jamboree and some pocket pages to keep the little bits and pieces that I will undoubtedly collect. Lastly I made a map folder, this is the maps for the layout of the whole Jamboree.

Luckily for me maps is the theme for Scrapbook Fantasies on-line challenge.

So here it is. I hope you have enjoyed this post and I promise that next time it will not be sooooooo long between posts.....
