This post is to let my followers know that I will be having a break from papercraft. I have been receiving nasty messages through social media in relation to my work and as a result of this I am quite discouraged and will be having an extended break. I hope in the future I will create again and post on my blog.
Thank you to my followers and I hope your creative journeys continue.
I thought I would also share my projects here as well.

How many crafters have a multitude of photos on the computer. I have a box with lots of printed ones as well. I found a collection of photos of my son jacob and I wanted a display where I could change the picture from time to time. So made a slide frame and mounted the photos in pairs and of course there had to be a box on there somewhere. I also decided to try the same project with a few spare wedding photos. I really love the way every Graphic 45 collection can be used for my projects even if am replicating the same design.
Tip: Layer fussy cut images from the Graphic 45 papers vertically to create dimension and depth. Ensure there is a slight overlap to create uniformity of the images.
I have been trawling youtube and I think I have watched every Dyan Reaveley
video I can find. Her style of art journalling has inspired my to try.
The many different stamp sets she has are both quirky and funky and I really like them a lot and
I amy collecting them as quickly as I can.
I also have her paints and inks and they are such vibrant colours and so easy to use.
It has caused me to use a colour range I don't normally use.
I have made a few different projects on loose pages and card stock to try out the products.
Some images I have drawn as I don't have the stamp sets yet or have recently acquired them.
So there are some variations and some images are her stamps. But she has been a great inspiration to this new side to my creative journey.
I have also discovered the world of digital stamps and have purchased a couple. I think could become addicted very easily.
These are my first attempts when I purchased the dylusions paints.
Then I progressed on to to a larger project to see what having more space would lead me to create.
I was really happy with the result. The lines on the side are for me to journal on but I have not thought of what to write yet. I love the sea themed dylusions stamp sets.
This next piece is a warm coloured back ground after creating a cool coloured background
with the above page.
I bought a dylusions journal but had a disaster with it and it was not useable and I had to throw it out. I think the damp Tasmanian weather was a contributing factor. So I found and old art book that was not used and made couple of pages in there instead.
I hope you are inspired to get some dylusions products and try them out.
