a little piece of me..

so I'm sharing some randoms that I've created lately.....
I was inspired by a Fiona Paltridge video of a layout she created a little while ago..
 
I loved how it all ended up... a little bit of me and a little random.
 
"Hey Beautiful"
 the photo is one I took of my friends daughter Alecia in the sunflowers a little while ago
and its one of my favourites.....
{i'm printing at home at the moment so the quality isn't as good as i'm used to ..
but at least i'm getting some different material to work with"
the Camera Pin is from Rainbow Splendour
and the chippy is a Scrapmatts...... .
 
 the chippy I randomly dabbled glue and then added a couple of different coloured sands that I borrowed {yeah borrowed is the right word" from my daughter....
and the flair is by DLish.....
 
next up I was playing with being able to do people..
I still don't do people but I haven't given up yet...
 
'She Is Strong"
at lot of mixed media in this .. started with a dylusions background and then mixed watercolours and paint to a create the .. lady......
 I then "scrapped" the top portion of the page to create a she art inspired layout...
I've used another DLish flair,..  a Charms creation a heavenly heart.
and a Rainbow Splendour velum pin wheel.. cute hey!!!
and lastly..
 
"wild and CRAZY"
 
 since I've been doing a few watercolours lately I created this on the watercolour book page and then kept going. some of you may have seen the layout already on facebook..
I actually randomly videoed me creating this one.. a few whoopsies and all...

so the background.. candle wax, dylusions, watercolour, embossing powder and watercolour.. oh and posca pens.. woohoo...
the HEART is another Charms Creation,
 and this time the flair is from A piece of cake designs
and its mounted on a bottle top from DLish.. whooohoo for wonderful products..
 random stapling.... turned into cute hugs and kisses....
 
 
hope you've enjoyed looking at these..
thanks for visiting..
Leanne..

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..

Love you..

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...
