REMEMBER - perfect day - Scrapping Outback's White With a Twist February 2016

Hi all,
After a very non-motivating week, I've finally been able to find some inspiration and have a wee play. You may even recognise similar designs from previous LOs coz I've used techniques in this LO - learned from Rachelle Minette's classes at Scrapping here's the cocktail of colours for the February White With a Twist challenge:
To brighten up the flowers I've used some Prima Water Soluble Oil Pastels that I purchased from Scrapping Outback last year. Then I sprinkled some Prima glitters for a little sparkle - just like the girls' smiles :) 
 I just 'painted' the leaves with the Lindy's Stamp Gang (LSG) mists.

The Scrapping Outback team sure hope you'll come over and have a play too!!
 If you've never joined in before, it's really no need to be shy LOL - the only REAL criteria is to use every colour in the picture and at least 1 piece of chipboard - yep that's it!! excuses, I truly hope you'll come over to Scrapping Outback and have a go with February's bright and cheery colours :)
LSG mists: Toto's Tornado Black ; Bonjour Butter flat Fabio, 
Prima Water Soluble Oil Pastels  (yellow, yellow green, red and sky blue); glitters and wooden icon (our time)
Ranger Perfect pearls mist (forever blue); Resin Rainbow red heart
other: Gesso, stencil, stamps
REMEMBER - prefect day
Thanks for looking everyone, until next time loads of hearts and hugs xxx Mazz xxx

(personality) UNMASKED 2016

Hello there!!! I've taken up the very FIRST More Than Words Challenge!!! The Main Challenge is based on a Word inspiration and a Creative Challenge...I've wanted to join in this brand new challenge since it was announced last year - and mark my words...the DT is AWESOMELY talented and from what I've seen so far, the entries to this challenge are WAY beyond fantastic!!  So, here's the inspiration picture:
You can choose to use the word "personality" somewhere on your project, or simply be inspired to create from it.  Plus, January's creative challenge is to use a "selfie".
Honestly, at the moment I hate photos of myself, although I don't mind group photos so much. This photo took a while, and it’s a bit pixelated (as am I) and I'm doing the normal "cheeky, weird" smile lol.   Oh and in case you're wondering where my inspiration came from?? Very good question because I'd lost my mojo for about 2 weeks this month and I didn't even think I'd have enough time...but since this LO is "all about ME",
I've used my favourite (not clean and simple) "shabby" scrapping style together with a collection of old and new embellishments that are intended to symbolise my (diverse) personality
Supplies Used: Usually I would list ALL the products, but today I thought I'd share my favourites and also reveal that my favourite supplies (still) come from SCRAPPING OUTBACK, my2angels scrapbooking and craft supplies and the occasional internet site such as Mirrabooka Scrapbooking (where I got the metal mask and silver fern from). 
So without further ado I have used Marion Smith Designs papers (Junque Gypsy collection - Carte Blanche, Shangri La and Nota Bene); Microbeads; Dylusions Diamond border stencil; Martha Stewart punches;
Prima Marketing flowers, alphas, findings (bath), wooden embellishments (key to happiness, Eiffel Tower); Kaisercraft Mist (orange); Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst mists (Cocklebells Coral, Mission Bells Brown, Sea Mint Green) and Flat Fabio (Toto's Tornado black); Couture Creations foam mounting tape.
Most charms on this LO come from my2angels scrapbooking  and include: passport, world (my love of travel), scissors (my love of cutting paper); cook book (my love of cooking); teapot, cake with cutlery (my love of tea and sweet food lol); house and couch (my love of being home, watching tv with dlh);  tree of life, filigrees, butterfly (I adore the symbol of the butterfly);
 I’ve placed the wooden Punga, and Koala together representing my dual citizenship; above the bath are some Water Bubble Cabochons representing my love of bubble baths;

The recycled zipper represents the unzipping of my dreams, which includes time (Clock Swag die) to fulfil all my dreams. Of course the camera representing my love of photography and stash words representing other important stuff (to me).
There is also various stash mesh, sticky glitter tape, Impasto gel, black archival ink, Matisse Lang Lang Sand, black gesso, Paua Shells.
Thanks SO much for looking at this long post…. I do hope you now see me as I am, "unmasked".
  Till next time hearts  ‘n’ hugs �� ��Mazz ��

No day is over if it makes a Memory - WW1 January 2016

"No day is over if it makes a Memory"
Hi All,

I must admit this LO came together a lot more easily than usual - as soon as I saw the "treetop" green criteria for this month's White With 1 challenge:
I also have to day that the reason was that I knew this photo, taken circa 1969, was the one! The colour of our school uniforms - oh yes that's the memory LOL. 
The stencil is really supposed to be stitching, so not only are we (my sister and I) stitched together by family but I also think the stitches and circles look like kisses and hugs

Supplies used:
Resin Rainbow doily and tissue paper
Prima flowers

Couture Creations double sided tape and Vintage Rose Garden paper (Green Woods)
Georgia Heald stencil

Thanks for popping over today - I hope you're having a great weekend - with our Australia Day Public Holiday on Tuesday - could be a day for more creating for me???

Turtles (for my collection)

butterfly kisses

My fairy

Your fairy is called Columbine Goblinglitter
She is a bringer of riches and wealth.
She lives in mushroom fields and quiet meadows.
She is only seen in the light of a shooting star.
She wears lilac and purple like columbine flowers. She has gentle green wings like a butterfly.
