its PRETTY isn't it....

well it is a challenge so just run with it..
so I just decided on pastels and ran with it..
 
"Mud Love"
Yep what can I say....

I tried..
but I still LOVE IT..
its crazy just like Ivy... and a bit pastelly....
{yes I made up that word..}
some close ups....


some crazy texture, paint, mist and stamps....
we are all about hand made.. so here is a ..
A chip chop shop fimo Mushroom
and a Lil Red Rocket button....
{boy I miss those shops.... oh sigh}
and some more Rainbow Splendour goodness..
felt and vellum feathers... woohoo....
 
ok that's enough dribble from me...

Kraft Plus Challenge.. April...

 hello and welcome back to my ... silent and probably non existent followers..
although I must confess that my blog hopping has certainly fallen well to the wayside...
 
anyho...
Kraft + challenge for April.. how cool is it..
 
I just went for it..no idea what photo..
 just had a play..
and I love what happened...
 
"Dandelions are Magical"
 
as I said I love how this turned out.. it all just happened..
even with a minor setback of snapping the sewing machine needle off when it hit a staple.. whoops..
the colours.. and ingredients.. well YAY..
 
and then not to mention the photo.. one of my favourite dandelion photos..
which I am happy to say I've noticed my first one in my yard for winter..
WOOHOO........
 
well until next time..
don't forget to have a go at the challenge..
 its so easy and so good
 
Love you..
enjoy your life...

a little bit of ART....

Since I haven't been able to work and I don't have a job I've been trying to keep myself occupied...
and well these happened...
 
"Bedford"
 
this one is 120cmx90cm big..
done on a piece of ply wood.
mixed media... I've used house paint, inks, spray cans..
all on top of a layer of texture paste and stencils.....
close up...
I love the grunge....
 

and just to show you how mixed up I really am..
 this one is only 30cmx40cm....
"Dragonfly"
Created on a canvas board..
yep .. using my scrapbooking background I just wanted to play with the inks and watercolour paints to see what happened.. and of course.. a bit of texture.....
close up...

and then the latest one... measuring 75cmx60cm its a little middle sized canvas...
"Tulips"
again experimenting with dylusions inks and watercolour paints and acrylics.......
and lots of texture...
close up...
 
now what to do with these.. might have to create a little more and head off to a market or something..
 
thanks for visiting..
please leave some love...
 
Leanne..xoxo

Something totally left field...

good morning, afternoon or just a hello..
I've been experimenting a little lately.....
and I probably finish with this one.. since its the latest project that I created...
anyway, I never do anything in the correct order....
 
"Dare to Dream"
 This just started out as a little play with watercolour to create the deer..
and then ended up as a layout..
totally different and I really like it...

LOOK flowers... I used FLOWERS...
I know you can pick yourself up off of the floor now!!..
a dLish flair in there as well as some Rainbow splendour Felt bow and crown pin....
 SO...
what's been happening..
I heard that one of my favourite creative people was coming to town..
and I jumped at the chance to do a couple of her classes..
I LOVED THEM..
yep and haven't looked back....
 
"LOVE"
{inspired and taught by Lisa Oxley}
YEP this technique is SO very me.. so much fun.... and flowers.. argh.. flowers..
 a couple of different angles so you can see the layers.. the love and the fun....
 
And then the second one..
it was all about introducing you to the amazingness that is POSCA pens....
wow.. love them.. someone please fund me to so I can buy more...
 
"My Man"
 {inspired and taught by Lisa Oxley}

yep.. another colourful background......
and then have a go at that feather!!!!!
I used left overs from the previous layouts....and LOVE it..
thank you for the most amazing class and the awe inspiring talent..
 
have a superb weekend.. lots of love forever...

Photos bring me joy.....................

I have some photos..........................
I went to Stanthorpe and a friend showed me around to some of the places they work or have worked...
I fell in love with the shearing shed.. not sure why..
the smell took me back...............
 


 and of course some landscapes. I have more to share but just a couple for today..


 something has been on my mind.. and then today I had you tube on keeping me company and a Dixie chicks song came on... you know how you are listening to music or not even listening its on in the background and then something jumps out at you... well... I am through with doubt... that's what jumped out of the song.. its what I heard.. maybe we do hear/see/feel things for a reason.. and this time its telling me to stop doubting... myself, the person I am, my abilities, my LIFE... just let It go.. i'm ready to move on. i'm ready to love who I am again. not to rely on a man to make me feel.. so as of today i'm going to try..... I am through with doubt....................

thanks for listening to the ramblings.... have a super day

Show Us YOUR Stuff.. but today i'm showing mine...

Hello..... 
its mid month reveal for Show Us Your Stuff....

February kicked off with an awesome Challenge.. 

 for me it worked. .it happened so easily..
the thing that hit me was Circles and Patterned Paper...
so I cut and sewed some circles out of patterned paper. and then moved onto creating a background, finding the 3 photos and then i'm usually using a few different alphas in a title so that one was easy and then well handmade. YIPPEE>..

so i really should show you what i created...
"Glenelg Jetty"
 see.. i really really liked how this one ended up. 
 having recently brought my first lot of charms creations after admiring them for so long.. they were perfect... 
and a heart from Charm.. oh and that super cool camera flair from Dlish... yay
 and then a shot of my messy floor just coz i like some dimension every now and then..

now dont forget to have a play along.. and follow the link up the TOP of this post to Show Us Your Stuff and have a look and have a go.. it really is super easy and super fun..

lots of love to everyone..

Kraft Plus..........................

mmmm Kraft............ I'm sure there is a lot of people out there like me and like plain coloured backgrounds. well actually I go through stages. one minute on pattern paper backgrounds.. but at the moment I'm really loving playing with different mediums to make backgrounds. so when Kraft Plus came about I knew that I wanted to join in and play along. its always a good starting point..


 ANYHO... I had 2 attempts at this one.. but I'll show the second attempt first because I didn't get sidetracked doing it.....
 
"#queensland"

 yep.. kind of not sidetracked.. but I've used the colours and the photo for inspiration.. the colours are obvious but the photo.. ahhh summer..beach.. queensland.. bliss....
 close up... the charms creation heart {I just added the button" and dlish camera flair {LOVE these}
 and some randomness in a corner...

and then here is the original attempt that got slightly sidetracked...
 
"shameless selfie"


 some closies on that one..... the felt is all felt zig zags from Rainbow splendour that I cut up........ another crazy background...
 some super cool chipboard from scrapmatts. which I embossed.. yes another obsession at the moment.
 
and  yet another super cool flair from dlish..
 
and now i'm just throwing in a random coz I love it..
 
"George"
 
 
more background mess...
another dlish flair complete with wire exactly how it was packaged from the shop......
 
messy messy layers........
 
and a Charms creation arrow.. way cool.. oh and not forgetting my baby George.. what a cutie..
 
so there you go. .the workings, playtime and therapy of the last week and abit.. "slackarse" yep I know..
 
have a blessed, loving and laughing day..
