I still get so excited when I see this photo of my little Missy Moo. She brings so much happiness to our family. She is constantly smiling, ok, perhaps not when she sees her bottle! Tee hee

I want lots of bright colours and something super fun.
I started off building up my layers in my mixed media background. Once I was happy I then started building my page.

Products used: Spritz / cotton candy
                        Vibez / sweetheart
                        Inklingz/ good as gold/ pink -a-boo/ blue n me
                       Creameez / piggy pink/ berry hot / Ride the tide 


Hope this inspires you with your shimmerz products today.

SCRAPPING: Whats this?


Just popping by before the man in red comes with another festive creation using more of the pink fresh studio and shimmerz of course.

Products used: 
Coluringz: Oh say can U sea, Well blue me down, Jeni B Bleu, Heidi Ho blue and peachy keen

I really wanted to create squares on my background. So I cut out a bunch and stuck them down. I then used some gesso and lots of coluringz.

I then add some machine stitching to add a little texture.

Then I started building my page from there.

"Whats this?"

Wanting to take this opportunity to wish you all a very lovely Shimmery Christmas and sparkly 2016!

I had this really cute photo of all my children. There are dressed nicely and smiling too.  I wanted to create something that represented them. So I went with lots of blue tones, representing my two boys and a splash of pink for my little girl.

I started with my background. Just building up layers and texture.  Once I was happy with it I then started on building layers for my photos and adding embellishments.

Products used: Creameez - berry hot and piggy pink
inklingz - giddy about green and blue my mind
Colouringz - well blue me down
Dazzlerz - foiled again


Hope this inspires you to use your shimmerz and simply to have fun,

MINI ALBUM: 31 days Part 3

Previous posts to this series are here.

So last month I had a lot of fun creating this Insta album. Each day spending no more than 31 minutes on my album.
Yes, at the beginning of October I was pessimistic that I would actually fulfill the challenge.
What ya know? I did it!

I now  have a the cutest little album, well I think so anyway, of my Little Missy Moo sitting on my shelf full.

Hope you enjoyed watching this album evolve as much as I did creating it.

Its been a very long time since I sat down and create something just because I could.

This month is going to be absolutely crazy. November is always crazy busy in this house. Lots of things happening, end of the school year celebrations, orientation days for my middle child starting school next year, a little trip away for renewing and refreshing and everything else in between.

But this month I am going to do my best to allow just 15 minutes a day to do something for me. Even if it means sitting on the couch with a coffee watching my children play. Just something to make me stop, catch my breath and enjoy being off the merry-go-round for a bit.

This page I created last week with no purpose at all.
I simply found this photo of my Missy Moo and started off with my background.
I used loads of shimmerz and watercolour pencils and then I grab out lots of embellishments from all different baskets. I simply pulled out embellishments in the colours I was creating with. Some embellishments here have no meaning and no relevance. They were simply the right colour and I wanted ot use them.

I love how this page turned out.


I hope you all find a little time to catch your breath this month too!

MENU : 26/10

Menu on a Wednesday?
Why not. 
I had intentions posting this on Monday, but my 'life' had other ideas.
I was really struggling with meal inspiration this week. You know, where nothing seems inviting or interesting.
After a little search on instagram and pinterest, I came up with a few ideas.

Monday: Meat pie with steam vegies and a side of wedges.

Tuesday: Stir fry sausages with  vegies. (as requested by my little people)

Wednesday: Crumbed steak with Diane gravy served with mash sweet potato, corn cobs and a few seasonal vegetables.

Thursday: Thai green curry chicken with jasmine rice

Friday: Fresh Salmon with curry sauce served on rice.

Saturday:  Leg of Roast Lamb with mint sauce along with all the trimmings.

Sunday: Still have no idea. Thinking it might be dessert night?
Cheesecake, fresh fruit salad and ice cream.
I want something hassle free and easy.

Leave me some ideas, please! ;-)

SCRAPPING: Layout using Shimmerz


I have been having a little play with some shimmerz again. Using some inklingz, creameez and dazzlerz.

I decided to crate a layout of my daughter. Its been a long time since I did layout, it felt great to create!

Prodcuts used: Inklingz: me and blue, Giddy about Green
Creaneez: Piggy Pink
Colouringz: Well blue me down
Spritz: Cotton candy
Dazzlerz: Foiled again

I started with my background gesso. I then used my spritz and Colouringz with a lot of water to allow it move around.
I then mixed some of the inkingz in with some mica beads and layer that on with a palette knife.

I then randomly put more inklingz on till I was happy.

I then used a stencil and a palette knife and applied some Dazzlerz.

Some details photos of my work.

I even applied some inklingz to my wood veneer word.

Hope this inspires you today with your shimmerz products.
