Creations For The Week

Here is this weeks effort for scrapping, I made myself a couple of mixed media canvases, and a really cute little matchbox. 

This is my first mixed media canvas house, I really enjoyed making this and I think I shall make some more they will make lovely gifts from some of my friends.

Here are the close up photo's to show off the detail.

I also made a SHE ART this week.

Here are the close up photo's to show off the detail.

And last to share is my mini Matchbox. I must say that these can be fiddly to make but once they are, they are so cute you want to make more.;)

I found a template for this Matchbox here  so enjoy making one yourself if you already haven't ;)

Altered Matchbox

This is my first ever altered matchbox, I made it to swap with Allison (Allisonaussie) from (SB) and one of my best friends. It's been awhile since Alli and I did a swap and the other day while checking out Alli's gallery on SB I saw that she had made an altered matchbox. I messaged her straight away and asked if she would like to make another and swap with me, and of course she said yes! :)

So here is my altered matchbox and matching tag.

Here is the template to this Matchbox matchbox template.pdf

Here Fishy, Fishy

Here is my latest ATC's for the local swap here in Tasmania. I jumped a month ahead and did August's theme "Under The Sea".
I found this cute little image of this fish while surfing the Internet, and I didn't have the appropriate stamp for this project, so I printed it in wallet size x 9 on a  A4 sheet of paper which is perfect for ATC's and then I used my watercolour pencils to colour the image in.

Ingredients - White cardstock, assorted Tim Holtz mists, Kaisercraft paint, ink, tissue paper, printed fish, watercolour pencils, Kindyglitz, Dimensional magic.

I know that I should really be working on this months theme which is "Things I Love" and at the the moment I can not decide what to scrap about I have way to many choices. I'm lucky its still only the beginning of the month and I still have time to complete them.

Something For Winter

Brrr all weekend it has been freezing here with rain, snow on the mountain and chilling winds, so to share with you all today I'm posting a acrylic album I made last year. That is just so suitable for this weekend and the view from my scraproom window.

Mt Wellington, brrr look at that snow.

So here is my album to share :)

Thanks for looking ;)

Nothing For Show But Something To Tell

Well this entry I have nothing to show as I haven't created anything this week, scrapbooking wise that is :( So this week is only a tell post.

I've been a bit distracted this week with reading up on Basketball rules and organising myself for my AASP (Active after School Program) sessions at the kids primary school.
I really wanted to make sure that my first session with 25 + children was going to go off without any hitches, but alas with my nerves on high I did find the first session a bit daunting. Not everything I had  gone to plan and the teacher that helps run the session asked if I could change a few things  while teaching. But like a true coach I was able to change my sessions too accommodate what they wanted for this first session. I'm hoping with my first session under my belt that it’s going to be easier, as they say the more and more you attempted something the better you shall become at it! ;)

So with that happening this week and with running around after my 4 very busy children, I haven't had time to sit at my scrap desk and create. I also haven't even had the chance to even start my scrap-room Reno’s. I'm not sure what to do first maybe create something, or start to pull my room apart so I can start preparations ...argh!
Maybe I've picked the wrong time to start my scrap-room Reno’s, I want to put some of my furniture in the kids rumpus room and right now with it being winter the kids are hanging out more in there and well its not really fair taking up room in their chill zone! Maybe I might have to put my Reno’s on the back burner?

Well this week I'm going to attempt to make something, even if it's some more ATC's for the swap I'm in, or start the Matchbox Challenge that Allison (Allisonaussie) from has messaged me about.  So let’s see what this week brings.
