Retreat layouts

I just had the best weekend at the ScrapBoutique Coffs Harbour retreat. How cool is it having a retreat only 20 minutes from home!! And...what a great bunch of ladies we had to scrap with! Chelsea really knows how to organise a retreat and it was so much fun!

Here we are in our cute aprons from our goodie bags...

And these are the pages I completed...

...using Basic Grey Picadilly...love this range!

and October Afternoon Sidewalks.

The inspiration challenge using Simple Stories Yearography....

...the speed scrap using Pink Paislee Nantucket

and the quote challenge using Crate Paper Farmhouse.

And my November stylist challenge using Fancy Pants Baby Mine. My colours to use for this challenge were blue, yellow or red....perfect for my new little nephew Flynn!

Chelsea had an awesome mixed media area set up at the retreat for all the ladies to use. I did a small demo on Saturday to show a few techniques and then everyone had a chance to have a go and see how much fun it is!

...this is my canvas using pan pastels, liquidtex ink, neocolor crayons, paint dabbers and lots of background stamping using a big brush pen...

I also had a play in my art journal and created a few different pages...but will have to share those another time.

The Passion 4 Fashion Competition is now over with the overall winner being the lovely Karen Watson. Runner up was Monica Brady...both super talented girls and well deserved winners!
I was lucky enough to be a weekly winner and for a style I love...grunge!

This was my page...

It was super exciting to win this as the entries were all so fabulous!

Thanks for stopping by and happy creating xx
