ww1.. White + Black + misting or paint..

whooopsss.. SO sorry .. and i know what the?? 2 posts in one day..well it totally wasnt planned but i felt like scrappin today..but had no idea what so being the end of the month i thought i'd do a challenge.. so i did the White with 1 challenge.. and trust me was a challenge...... so for this month it was....
White + Black + Paint/Misting....
so i created this...
"Beautiful Girl"
scrapbooking,oct 2011,WW1 and yep I was a little DIFFERENT.. trust me hey.. you see this month they changed it up.. where you could use the the other colour as the background... but.. the White still had to be 40%...... so how did i go... LOL.. yeah i went the other way..closies...


the chip chop shop doiley....
the title, some tim holtz tape.. and some Pink paislee trim {it is a mistable but i chose to leave it raw..lol}... and some of the ever reliable muslin...
the PAINT..is the background... mixed some white paint and texture paste with an awesome The cRafters workshop stencil..yum.... and HOW cute are these photos..
and i misted the flower black..so i guess i painted AND misted.. brownie points..LOL.. hahhahahhaaa....


ok.so dont forget to check out the post below coz its thats new and i lOVE love..


happy days...

getting messy again.....

hidy ho.. how you goin???
welcome to a mixed bag today..lol..
first up.. Scrapz.biz is having a melbourne cup sweep... so i thought i'd have a go..here is the criteria.....use this sketch



and this inspiration...
AND add some twine or ribbon...
and i managed to come up with THIS....
"Summer Fun"
scrapbooking,Oct 2011,scrapz.biz,clear cuts,scrapmatts
When i picked up my last order from Heike she asked why i get these A4 book board sheets.. well this is why..you can cover with heaps of texture paste and glimmer and it DOESNT buckle..perfect ............
there is my twine or ribbon.. and a ScrapMatts Frame... alittle simple stories alphas..
YUMM... i knew when i saw the inspiration that i HAD to use one of my Clear Cuts Butterflies.. which also reminded me of HOW i really NEED to order some more... eeekk......
and then some playing for the background with Texture paste that i stamped the heart in.. waited and waited for it to dry and then coloured and drew around and then finished with the liquid pearls.. [wouldve sewed but its WAY too thick for the sewing machine...]

and then some songs...


sorry but had a massive storm here last night and then was buggered from a busy day so i didnt Sunday Sesh yesterday..so heres what i had planned...
"not over You." Gavin McGraw



and then... {this is funny clip}
"Paradise" Coldplay

and then... {insert SORRY now}

i came here tonight with the sole purpose of just sharing a layout..and well instead there is probably goin to be some ramblings of my mind.. since it IS my blog i think that i am allowed to..so please just skip to the comments and make sure you leave me one if you dont want to listen to my ramblings.. NOW...

ok... so your still here.. well i've put the house on the market.. yep i'm selling up and movin onto NEW and exciting pastures.. well maybe not superbly lushious and green but pastures non the less... and in my cleaning spree i have been thinking.. thinking about a house i want to rent.. and how the ONE must is that it has a making room or just some where... i have the need to create.. and i'm not just talking about scrapping.. you see i mindlessly spent 2 years doin a visual arts course..yeah sure it was coz i didnt want to study i just wanted to waste my brain.. do something mind numbing where i dont have to think just do... and now that feeling has been starting to come back to me.. you see...during my course on of the things i really really loved was Life drawing..yep.. LIFE drawing.. having a model come in where i can pick apart part of their body .. and feel free to do what i pleased with it.... i love that.. but i can tell you that at the start it really really wasnt like that.. you see i was a very...... well........ umm not sure how to say it but.. probably naive no no no not naive but not ..well travelled.. putting it nicely..as a matter of fact i havent even been anywhere.. {ps this is in code so yeah read into it..}...yep i hadnt even left the block.. i wasnt the person people wanted so i was just me.. and then to be thrown into a world of ART where life in all its forms is embraced even worshipped was a REAL learning curve for me..but in the end was something that i liked the most.. anyho. to cut a long story short i think i might go back in the new year and do a couple life drawing courses.. mmm something to think about .but in the mean time i think i might just have to find me some pencils or even a canvas or two and start to do ..well just stuff..i remember what it felt like to create.. to draw or paint or my favourite to PRINT something that i liked.. what i felt like doing.. i must admit i'm no where near being a good artist or even an mediocure one.. but i dont care. i think i just want to be able to do again.. anyho thats my rant.. over said its out there.. now to see if i actually do anything in the new year.. fingers crossed that this house sells quickly and i can get onto things that i want.. {i'm still deciding exactly what i want ... but you know what i mean}.. anyho....i'll leave with this.. he is currently hangin in my bedroom.. {opposite a female form..but i wont show that one..contains nudity..lol..]

so there you have it.. oh and if you've managed NOT to fall asleep during this rant..please feel free to leave me a comment.. lol.. PLEASE.. okay then.. bye...

welcome welcome welcome.. {esp ZINGA....}
just another sunday sEsh for you all......
sorry i've missed a couple of sesh{es}.. so sorry but you know when your feeling alittle down you just cant be bothered... well usually i BOTHER.. i'm the one who goes out of my way to make others feel great or good..or just make them smile....
and well the last couple of weeks i just COULDNT be well... {{insert a 6 letter word beginning with F..and ending in ED... }} yep i think you get the message...
but today i had alittle but much needed cry.. and just to mask how i was feeling so that no-one would notice.. i watched "Seven Pounds" with Will Smith.. and holy crap you could definately say that i needed a few tissues..if you havent seen it then watch it.. {but hint.. actually watch, really watch the start... } anyho.. so cry over and then i had a rest... needed it.. although last night was an early one ..snuck out and home in bed by 12:30.. was out end of season trophy night.. so i got to get dressed up.. yep a DRESS even..hehehe..oh but the theme was black and white {semi-formal}.. i had trouble..needed colour so i added these....
yep i FINALLY wore them.. and they were so coolio... was definately the hottest shoes there.. hehhehehe....so anyho.. i went home early ... was feeling in the mood not to talk to anyone..well not really in the mood but i have trouble talking to people.. i actually said that to someone last night and they were.. you talk to people all the time at work..its what you do.. you talk and sell stuff... AND yeah granted i do.. but as i also said then was .. i can do that because i know that for the most part i dont or wont have to see them again so it doesnt matter..but when i go to talk to people i dont know or only know alittle well... i just cant... i really really STUGGLE.. so this got me thinking [yep i do that too much as well] if i cant talk to people then i really am goin to be alone for the rest of my life.. i'm sure people think i'm rude but i'm not.. i'm just boring and CANT do it... trust me i am boring... seriously.. have you not read my blogs.. i am boring.... see you are goin to sleep reading this............ dont lie i know you are so.. WAKE UP JEFF...hehehehheee..
ok.. seriously what am i goin to do.. so what i've decided since going out isnt working... i'm just goin to hibernate.. and only go out very rarely... {cept have special people on 11 NOv so will be goin then..}.. so no more if people text "Drinks" i'll be saying no thanks.... i need to start getting myself in order.. so i ran again today..havent been able to since i hurt my knee at indoor soccer a few weeks ago and you know what it felt good.. so i AM getting up and goin of a morning again.. i dont care if its just me and Milo {dog}.. i am goin to do it...i'm goin to try and get myself right.. i need to pull myself out of MY hole that i have dug and am hiding in right now.. even though i have said i'm hibernating i will be digging... so not really hibernating but you know..not goin OUT there but diggin in wards to find something.. some spark..thats it i've lost some SPARK.. so if you've seen it please return it ASAP......

ok enough crap from me ... and let the good times begin......
just stumbled on this... its ... wait for it...
T-PAIN.... yep T-PAIN.. but trust me listen to it....



and then.. Eliza Doolittle



now this one..Bombay Bicyle club... you dont neccessary have to listen {but try}
WATCH the video.. these people.. i want to be one of them when i grow up..



{{PS.. i facebooked anothery of their songs.. GLORIOUS..and yep i am about to leave this once i've finished this post to purchase their cd from iTUNES.. Bombay bicycle club - A different kind of fix}..

oh and i've been doing stuff....

{PS,, definately NOT THE SAME PAGE here. its two..lol..}
so been needing to use that part of my brain.. right now its screaming to be used..might have to get myself some canvases.. i think i need to play..... let that part be free....... in more ways than scrapping.. i have been feeling the NEED to visit some galleries..but i just havent.. but i think its time i started to go again just so i can sit and be... well.. wherever it takes me..
so enough said for tonight.. bye.
and thanks for your love ..... happy days to you all....
