Hello there my creative lovelies!!! Can you believe we are now in June? Where has this year gone? Well start of the month means one thing…. new collection by 3Quarter Designs and man is this collection a must have!!! I love this collection.
I created a layout using a photo from my trip to the USA in January. I used 1 sheet of patterned paper and 3 of their photo mounts. 2 of them I used for behind the photo and 1 to create the banners.
I used a few chipboard pieces just covering them with ink. I also used almost a full elemental sheet, fussy cutting them out and inking the edges to give an aged look.
For the background I used Darkroom Door background stamp – World Map with Distress Ink.
Thanks for popping and I will be back soon with another layout using this collection.
Hi Everyone, today for my tutorial I am sharing a mini suitcase I altered for Snip Art.
There is a process video at the end of the blog if you would like to watch.
I started by cutting my background ornamental chipboard to size and applied Finnabair’s liquid acrylic paint in Burnt Seinna.
For the cogs, I heat embossed the cogs with WOW embossing powder Weathered Gold. I painted the first layer of the balloon with liquid acrylic paint in Burnt Seinna and then heat embossed the top layer with WOW embossing powder Crusty Copper.
I covered the title and compass with Faded Jeans Distress Oxide Ink. The feather arrow and frame stamp chipboard I covered with Old Paper Distress Oxide ink.
I used Finnabair’s Matte Wax in Rusty Red and Rusty Brown on the outside of the suitcase to age it.

Hello there my lovely crafty friends, today I am sharing my latest project for Snip Art
with you all. When I received my DT box 2 months ago I was super excited when I saw the MDF anchor and have been busting at the seams to create something with it……so here is my project.
For the base I used a Art Anthology Stone texture paste and Paper Artsy Fresco chalk acrylic paint to create a rusty effect. I added some fish netting and art stones as well.
I used the same paints to cover the seashell frame, rudder, title and compass with feather. The octopus I used archival ink in mermaid lagoon and vintage photo.
I inked around the edges of the anchor using Ground Espresso Archival ink and dry brushed the netting with white gesso.

Hi there my lovelies, well start of the month means new collection over at the 3Quarter Designs headquarters and boy this one is absolutely stunning.
For my background I used the first 2 top sheets in the image above and inked the torn edges with Faded Jeans Archival Ink. I then stenciled the background using Art Anthology’s Diamond Grunge stencil and Faded Jeans distress oxide ink pad.
I sprayed my lace using Seth Apter’s new Izink sprays in Outremer and also used it to splatter the background and spray on some flowers and the lattice chipboard which I cut into pieces to create a border.
I used the elements sheets to fussy cut the old clock, butterflies, frame and some flowers. I also used 2 of the mat sheets for behind my photo. To finish off the layout I used a Tim Holtz stamp called Papillon for the background script.
Thanks for dropping by and I will be back soon with another one of my projects

Hello there my lovely friends, today I am sharing my project for 3Quarter Designs using their new collection Luminous Aura.
For my project I decided to create an album for a friend of mine who can use it for her travels in the future. This range is absolute stunning and I managed to use every single piece in the pack for this album……fist pump moment right there!!!
The album itself I purchased from Kmart here in Australia and it was a kraft based album. I added some stenciling on the cover and painted with black gesso. The chipboard frame is apart of a 3 pack from Kaisercraft which I inked and added crackle accents to. The title I used one of Tim Holtz Quote Chips.
The flowers are by Green Tara and Prima and everything else is from the 3Quarter Design collection pack.
I have a very quick flick through video of the inside of the album so if you would like to see it please click here.
Enjoy and I will be back soon
Hi Everyone, I hope you all had a lovely Christmas Day with all your family and friends. Today I am sharing my DT project for Dusty Attic with this mixed media layout I created which would be perfect for any travel photos you may have taken over the Christmas holidays.
My background paper is by 13@rts His & Her Range and I added some watered down black gesso as my focal point. I used Dusty Attic’s Arrows Stencil with some white gesso for the background. The film strip I found in my stash and I think it may have been on of Kaisercraft’s acetate sheets.
All the chipboard pieces I painted with white gesso, the Polaroid chipboard I added some crackle paste and then used Distress Oxide Ink pads for colour. I also added the same inks to the large tag and Chain Circles.
I stamped and fussy cut some images from Tim Holtz stamp set The Professor. I then used black archival ink to colour the Ticket, compass and blueprint title.
