Playing Mixed Media

Well I am back with another LO I have created recently. I decided to add some paint to my background as a bases which is not something I do often, the paper already had a distressed background.

I raided my scraps basket and used lots of odds and ends I had on my desk. I then decided to alter some of my huge stash of wood veneers. I used a lovely shadow ink from Hero Arts which is a lovely saturated colour and looks great on the wood.

My scraps basket is currently overflowing so I will be creating some more LO from it soon.

Thanks for Looking

Evolution of my Craft Space

I have recently just finished my big clear out of my craft stash and space and now everything is much more organised. I am also hoping it will encourage me to use some of my tools more as well as what is remaining of my paper stash.

 

As many of you know I live in a static caravan for most of the year and to be honest my crafting stuff has taken over the living room part of my caravan. In a bid however to be able to have others in the space I had a reorganisation and made use of the storage I had on wheels so I could move it if I needed too.

 
My crafty corner bench seat, this is the corner of my living room. I have added a draw unit behind me to store less used items.
The storage on wheels in front of my craft desk. My blue ikea cart is always pulled out and beside me when I am crafting.
This is part of the built in storage of the caravan which perfectly holds 12x12 albums. That is my bike and freezer in front of it. Their is a door to the right so it's easy for me to get my bike out.
This is the view from my craft desk. I do have a TV in the corner but have not bothered to hook this up as I find I watch most of my tv online these days so I have room for my laptop or iPad on my craft desk to entertain me whilst I craft.

I am happy with how it looks now and I hope to be able to spend many happy hours in this newly organised space. Now I just need to keep it tidy!

Scrappy Sunday

Thought I would try blogging again, this time from my IPad. I am yet to find an app that I like though. 

My best mate came over on Sunday for a  bit of crafting and lots of gossiping and food. I managed to get one LO completed.

I tried to use my scraps up in get this completed and also some buttons I have had in my stash for a long time. 

Thanks for looking

Project Life/Weekly Album

As I mention earlier in the year, which is crazily nearly half way through, I am doing Project Life this year as my yearly format album this year.  I am enjoying using the divider pages and changing up the theme each week, but I have decided I still need to add in a few single photo pages to mix it up a bit.

Here is a couple of my divider page LO’s and some of the other pages I have made recently.

I am still typing all my journaling, I am using my typewriter or a typewriter font on my computer.  I am finding that I am putting more and more journaling on my weekly pages.

The above two LO are from week 18, I am finding if I have an event in a week I am wanting to create LO where I can showcase the photos not the journaling.  Both of these were made using scraps from my scraps basket, the top LO is using papers from Cosmo Cricket which I have had for about 3 years and are in my use or loose pile.

This is a 8.5 x 11 page which I used to document a weekend as I had run out of space in the divider page.  The back of this LO includes some ephemera from the weekend.

I am hoping to share some more LO’s in the next couple of weeks when I get the images uploaded on to my laptop.
