The Joy of Christmas

It's that time of year again, we're getting in or a least trying to get into the spirit of the season. Here's December's mood board for Scrap the Girls.
The colours are inspirational, come play along, there is some awesome prizes.

The layout that very nearly didn't happen after a little mishap with my Raident Rain Solar Gold, one of my favourite colours to work with lately. After a glass of wine and gathering myself together I ended up having a blast playing and painting, even the sharpie pens came out, so much fun and messy play.

Lucky I had my stay at home comfy clothes on. I guess my pants are now my 'stay at home, arty pants' :D

Here's how it ended up.
Products used - Chipboard by Your Creative Wings, paper by Blue Fern Studios, card by Bazzill. Other products used - Raident Rains - Solar Gold & Hot Cinamon. Stamps by Blue Bazzar, Kaisecraft, Hero Arts and Stamp-it, paint by Golden, ink by Versa Color - Versa Fine Black Onyx. Sharpie pen and Zig.

The lesson learn't here,,,, don't give up, a stamp here, a blob of paint there, a splatter here and there, even add another dribble to the dribble that wasn't meant to be. You just never know the outcome. It's only paper. Play, have some fun. 
Now get onto playing along with Scrap the Girls.

Until next time

Pocket Letters

In a effort to keep the mojo flowing I've been playing along in a little 'mail art' project called Pocket letters. You can see heaps of ideas of how people participate on good ol' Google, just pop what are Pocket Letters in the search bar and discover a new way of sending pen pal snail mail. There's also some great inspiration on Pinterest

Basically - Pocket letters are pen pal letters in pocket format. You fill the pockets of a 9 pocket page or card protector, like for ATC's or baseball cards etc and send it to someone who wants to swap or to an existing pen pal.

Scrapping Clearly have a pocket letter swap happening every month and I've really enjoy playing along.

The theme was 'Things with Wings' although in my rush to get mine done I failed to notice there was a theme involved. Luckily I had used some butterflies on the set ;) 

 I actually had time to do a little mail art on the envelopes, been a while since I did that.

It was so nice to get my return swap from Janelle. It was like getting a pressie in my mail box. 

Until Next time
