Hello and welcome bloggers! Here in Australia it's spring time and summer is fast approaching.  I still have last years summer pictures to I decided that I better get a move on and scrap at least one ( I might get to the many years before that sometime soon?)
So for today I'm here to share with you a 'Girly coloured' mixed medium layout I created using some stunning Scrapmatts chipboard and Manor House Creations Flowers.
  I must say that the title is only somewhat correct - it was a 'perfect photo' in my eyes but having a 9yr old daughter means that in no way could she be possibly perfect and I'm sure those of you that have been through girls at that age would have to agree......however I must say I'm fortunate she loves the camera and takes a wonderful photo!

thanks for dropping by and see you again soon...G!

Scary Weather!

Hello friends and bloggers....Welcome!
Here today to share two of my latest Creative Team tag creations.
for UmWowStudio. I love looking at other blogs and I have been so inspired by fabulous tag creations lately that I decided to use that inspiration and create this set...... 
Together they are called 'Scary Weather'
Yes -I know I have used  those Spooky trees again - Oh how I love these, so how could I resist anything to do with nature?

UmWowStudio products used:

I have also used lots of other mediums to create these:
Shimmerz textures, Tim Holtz Crackle paint, Distress glitter, twine and various distress inks.
7 DotsStudio - Cold Country paper.
Hope you have enjoyed my post and see you in September!

Tea please!

Hello and Welcome friends!
Today I'm sharing a fun 4 photo layout that I created for UmWowStudio, I decided to do a lighter palette and a more whimsical theme than I would usually do - Alice in Wonderland.
I have used lots of gorgeous 'New Nature' UmWowStudio chipboard and for a change....Out with the more normal Goth (so I'm told) and in with the whimsy!
'Adventure Awaits'

I love to cover chipboard in crackle paint and then I use various inks to add just hints of colour
and highlight the cracks - to create one of a kind pieces of chipboard.

 Hope you have enjoyed looking at my layout.
Till next time. Geraldine!

So Cold!

Hello there friends and Welcome!
Today I'm here to share with you a DT layout for UmWowStudio of my daughter Mackenna featuring some fabulous UmWowStudio chipboard pieces and Flair that I wanted to make the sole focus elements of the page. I chose the Branches and Bats to give the page a spooky vibe to go with that icy stare!
'A Cold Stare'
UmWowStudio Products:
Dream a little dream flair
 The Chipboard has been coated in Tim Holtz Crackle paint and then inked with various distress inks,  Black Stazon and sanded to peel away for a weathered look.
Paper - 7DotsStudio.
Thanks for dropping by the blog and I hope I have given you some inspiration! If you feel like some more inspiration drop on over to the UmWowStudio Blog and see some of the amazing creations the DT have been busy doing.
