Ode to some amazing creative mates who are doing a little blog lurking tonight!!!! :) :) :)

Hi Guys

I created these layouts to help work thru a bit of a mojo hump :) [hence using the same photo :) :) :) by the uber talent of LVB :)]

Used some awesome Tattered Angels Chalk board for this and the orange layout!

LOL not some of my best creativity but it served the purpose of getting me thru my little mojo slump!!!

Cheers and Happy Scrapping :) xoxox

Creative Jump Start Summit 2012 :) :) :)

Hello Hello

I have the special joy of being todays Jump Starter :) :) :)

I do hope you enjoy!

If you have already seen the video/blog post then you will know one of my fave sources of 'go to' inspiration! so with that in mind I thought I would share this link with you!

I attended a fabulous retreat in Byron Bay last year and whilst I was in Byron I visited a local art gallery! Whilst I was there I signed up for their newsletter so I get updated on new artists and their work which obviously is for sale!! But the bonus for me is the amazing inspo!!!

Cheers and I hope you enjoy

Louise xoxo

Here tis;

PS if you would prefer not to see art work that depicts nudity and perhaps other scenes that might be censored on TV then I advise you not to view these artist galleries :)

2012 stuff and my love affair with Tattered Angels Mist :) :) :)

Hi Guys

This is a bit on an emotional post :). Recently I was asked by this wonderful creative; Kate Palmer if I would mind if she featured me in a series of blog posts she was doing! As always I am over the top honoured and always more that a little gob-smaked that people want to do this sort of thing IYKWIM!!

Annnnnny way when I read what Kate had posted and saw the layouts she chose, [I am always surprised at which of my layouts chose or prefer, more often that not they are the ones that I think people will turn their nose up at LOL] I was literally speechless and a little teary! When you are passionate about stuff, and its is a very personal thing it always always touches my heart in a way that I can't verbalise!!! THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH Kate Palmer!!!

Which brings me to the last layout Kate posted!

This has and always will be, my Allllll time favourite layout using Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist!! There is nothing artistically that makes it stand out from any other or makes it more special! but from a 'heart' perspective it has quite illogically always represented in my mind what i love about Scrapbooking, Family/Friends and LOL using Glimmer Mist!

As I start 2012 off this post has reminded me about what is GOOD! about the Scrapbooking Industry, and that is .......... IMHO, the Passion that people have for their art/craft!! Passion for creativity, the Passion for sharing, Passion for their life friendships and relationships, the Passion for Documenting their lives!! and the Passion for not wanting to forget!!!!!!!!

Thank you to both Kate Palmer and Tattered Angels for making the start of 2012 one that I won't for get!!!! EVER!!!! :)

A Lil 'Somethin' extra :) :) :)

Hi Guys

Back again to share my A Lil' Somethin' Creativity 

To celebrate the New Year and my gratitude to Wendy and Susan for honouring me by asking me to be A Lil' Somethin' Ambassador I have created a layout that features not only some fabulous ALS product but my word/s for 2012,..... thank you!

......using the following fabulous ALS products :) :) :)

I used one of the pins from this, I have also used the doily but that is on another project for another DT so keep and eye out for it :) :) :)

I used a piece of the lace from this selection and coloured it using a Copic marker with the Air brush System :)

I used the green string flower from this selection, and as you can tell from the close ups I kinda 'distressed' it a little :) :) :)

Cheers and Happy ALS creating :) :) :)
