Class kit pages and some other scrappy shares

Hi there
I recently bought the Paper Stories class kit by Georgia Heald and last weekend I had some creative time! It's been a while since I have just been able to sit down and create and I found once I started I couldn't stop, lol.
I loved all the different techniques in this class, lots of paper collage, gesso and flicking paint here and there. The collection used is by Dear Lizzy.
 This is my favourite so I have framed it in a Prima frame ready to hang on the wall :)

 Love Georgia's style and it is so much fun flicking paint and mist around the page!

There is also lots of stamping adding texture to the layers. 

And the second page from the kit!

This one used lots of gesso and once again stamping to create texture.

I love the look of the flicks of gesso...I had never actually tried this before....not sure why not as it is a great effect.

I had leftover paper strips and gesso so I decided to create an extra page by adding a piece of Basic Grey paper from my stash. This photo was taken on our recent holiday to WA.

There was also enough paper and stickers left for a quick card, lol

I also completed a few just because pages...
I had a play with gelatos on this one

And using lots of Prima paper layers here...

The glassine envelope holds journaling and extra photos of our sightseeing trip around Esperance.

Thanks for making it this far! 
I hope you like what I have created and don't forget to stop by Scrap The Girls to join in the August challenge :)

Scrap The Girls August Challenge

Hi there

I have some exciting news to share with you today! I have joined the creative team at
As you may know I have had a break from the scrappy world due to lots of work and study commitments this year but I am now ready to jump back into it. Just because I wasn't scrapping doesn't mean I wasn't adding to my stash, so I now have heaps of goodies to cut into before all the new CHA stuff is released! I'm loving Crate Paper, Webster's Pages, October Afternoon, MME, Studio Calico and of course Prima...it's never ending temptation for this addict! lol
Anyway  I was so happy when I found out I would be joining the STG team! I love a good challenge and I hope I can inspire you in some way and you will play along with us :)

The August challenge is:


All entries must use

doodling and
chipboard or wood veneers

I have used October Afternoon Travel Girl papers and stickers!
 I just love OA label stickers...they are fabulous for both layering and journaling.
My masking with the new Heidi Swapp confetti stencil was done using impasto with a touch of gold paint mixed in! I then doodled around some of the shapes. The flower and leaves are from Prima and I have added a wood veneer arrow, camera and geotag!

I used a Kaisercraft stamp for some background interest. 

Hope you can pop over to Scrap The Girls and check out all the fabulous inspiration from the team!
