Auuuuussie Fun :)

Hi Guys

Suz has started a fab new blog highlight over at Aussie Scrap Source focusing on Journaling!! the Layout above is one that I did for the breif. I also shared the amazing creativity of one of my all time favest and most inspiring Creatives Julie Fei-Fan Balzer

Keep an eye of the blog for more of the Teams Journaling spotlights, they will rok your sockz!!!!

Guys Ive had a few Questions asked of me in the comments sections of various
posts about the spray inks I use and what I use to create the dimension on my
backgrounds, so I thought I would answer those that I can, sorry to do it this
way but many of you dont have an email address in your blogger profiles that I
can answer too!

The paper that i use on my textured look backgrounds is Tissue paper and Sewing pattern paper, all from the discount store or from an op-shop.

I use a variety of mediums to colour them including;
Paint - Semco, Jo Sonja, Kaisercraft
Spray inks - Crafty Notions, Glimmermist, Ranger Ink, Maya Road Mist, Memories Mist, Luminarte H2O's, Shimmerz
Inks - Stazon, Tim Holtz distress Inks, Versa colour, Colour box, Autum Leaves

I use plain old glue stick [I buy them in bulk from the discount store 3 for a $1.00] to apply the tissue/sewing pattern paper to background card, CS or corrugated card.

Sometimes I leave it dimensional, when I flatten it I run it through an A3 laminator.

The Chipboard that I use on my layouts are from these manufacturers;
2 Crafty
Words or Whatever
RW Laser Cuts
A2Z Scraplets
Kaisercraft - these would be the wooden embellies you see on my LO's
Heidi Swapp
Maya road
Riff Raff Designs
Dusty Attic
Paper Inklings

Umm I think thats all, please if you have any more Questions just ask away :) :) :)

If you have a more specific request include a link to Layout image to help me answer you Q :)

Cheers and thank you so very much for all your wonderful wonderful comments!!!

Much scrappy Mwah!!
