Little Miss Muffet.........

 
Hello there and welcome!
 Today I'm sharing my first official Creative Team member layout and blog post for UmWowStudio. I'm a lover of  nature and earthy things, right down to my colour palettes - they are generally subdued -Loud and bright colours scare me!.
So I must say.....how could I resist the Layered Leaves & Leaf confetti and I just had to add these Spooky branches -  to match that nasty big Spider.
 

UmWowStudio Supplies:
 
 
Nature Walk - Winged Vines - 7DotsStudio
Cold Country - Lonely Evenings - 7DotsStudio
Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst Sprays
Scrappers Garden Flowers
Tim Holtz Ball chain
TJ Designs - Prima Stamps


I find fussy cutting - relaxation therapy and the stunning design and colour of the Nature Walk paper added the perfect touch of nature I was after. I have even got some hidden spider webs on the layout - see if you can find them!


Thanks for dropping by my blog, Geraldine.

Hi there bloggers.........
I bought something special I couldn't resist.
It's a treasure I need to salvage -  Vintage, tattered, worn out and falling to pieces but I'm
determined to figure out the best way to approach it! Thought of using a heavy Gel medium or even some ice resin? Don't want to go to a book maker and change cover -I like it all broken up.
Happy to hear any suggestions anyone has please!
 
 

 
 Looking forward to the end result - think it will take a while though! G,

I wonderful find.

I love exploring and finding my name in places I never know about.
Who doesn't love a good write up about their scrapping and when it comes from such a wonderful Blog such as Tammy Tutterow Designs it really puts a smile on your face!
 
Here it is!
 
 

1. Twinkle Twinkle Tag by Geraldine Pasinati

This tag was a Pinterest find that literally stopped me mid-scroll.  I clicked on through and am so glad I did!  Not only did I see more of this amazing tag, but I also saw a second project by Geraldine, an amazing mixed-media layout that is so amazingly beautiful.  Her post with these two projects are on the UmWow Studio blog where she was a guest designer.  Check out her projects on the UmWow blog here: Geraldine Pasinati at UmWow Studio and also check out Geraldine’s personal blog at: A Fabricated Journey.
 
Thankyou Tammy for such kind words.
 My best  and most appreciative wishes to you!

5 Star Relax!

Hi there, I just had a great mini scrapping retreat with some lovely friends and despite all the talking and catching up I did manage to get one Scrapmatts DT page finished! I usually have to threaten to pull out the washi tape on one friend so that some scrapping gets done -but this time I think it might have been me that needed it and did the most talking!
 
'Cherish'
 

 
 
Thanks Joy, Michelle and Jo....it was a wonderful catch-up
and looking forward to the next time.....and who could resist that first 5***** Hotel suite!

Warrior Princess

 
Hello and glad you stopped by!
 
Today I'm sharing a Scrapmatts DT layout -once again of my daughter Mackenna.
I love the photo's from this Danielle Symons photo shoot and even though that many of them are similar I will just have to scrap them all.
 
'Warrior Princess' 
 
 
I have used several different mediums to colour the chipboard -
Rust Embossing powder, Tim Holtz Crackle paint and ink pads.
Again I can't resist this stunning paper by 7 Dots Studio and added
 Prima Stitched stamps and Wood grain stencil with Lindy's Stamp Gang Sprays.
 



Thanks for dropping by the blog. 
Enjoy your day. 
G!
