Super Star

I've used one of my exclusive sketches from the latest like for ever kit for this layout.  I make the sketches ahead of time, and there are a couple in this kit that I have been bursting to use!

I had a fun time playing with green mists in the background.  I wanted to tie the green grass in the photos in with the green puffy heart stickers.  There was no green in the papers, though, so I turned to mixed media.

I love the way Adele (Inkie Quill) adds mist to her photos and thought I would have a try.  I've also added some tiny sequins.  I like the effect and think I'll do this more often if the photo had any dead space.

I used the flair as my title (from Feed Your Craft) and added some extra star sequins (from SpiegelMom Scraps)

There are a tonne of these puffy heart stickers in the kit and I am determined to use them all this month!!

And the rub ons too, they have a limited shelf life so I aim to use them all up this month.  We'll see!  Here is the video if you fancy a gander...

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Hi, I've just found your blog through FB. Love that layout and the process video is great. I love the spray onto the acetate and then blot :-)

  2. Hi Laura, I love this LO. The colours and the little embellishments really make it.

    Hope you've had a nice start to the week. Sue

  3. I love your mix media, Laura! Pictures are beautiful and process is very good. Really great.

DMIO: Teach Me Something

A few weeks back I made a dream catcher.  A few readers asked if I could show them how I made it, so, here is my attempt at a tutorial! First up weaving the web. 1. You'll need a hoop and some ribbon/thread/yarn on a bobbin. 2. Attach the ribbon securely to your hoop. 3. Take your ribbon over the top of the hoop... 4. and up through the loop you've just made with the ribbon... 5. so you have a cross over. 6. Continue steps 3-5 until you reach the knot. 7. Now instead of going over the hoop you will crossover the ribbon 8. and through the loop you've just made to give a crossover. Continue on in this fashion until you get to the middle. You need to leave a hole in the middle as this is where the good dreams get through!  They then run down the tassels/feathers/any other hanging decoration and on to the owner.  It should look something like this.  You'll need to play around with your tension until you get a firm web. Now for the tassels - I like to

A Poe Quote

So I've been trying out art journalling for a while but had nothing that I wanted to share, until now. I was inspired by The Bears Challenge and picked this quote to base my page on. "If you wish to forget anything on the spot, make a note that this thing is to be remembered" I got some paints out, some spray mists too.  I used my fan brush, my fingers and a cotton rag.  I got messy, satisfyingly messy :) The letters are some old letraset vinyls that were my Aunt's.  When we cleared my Grandparents house I couldn't stand the art goodies to go to waste.  I saved them because I knew one day I would find a use for them.  They must be 40 years old but are still perfect.  (I sometimes look at things I get today and think they won't still be good in 5 years let alone 40!) I don't have the complete alphabet so there are some adaptations... c's became o's, E's became t's, w's became m's.  I magicked a k from a P!  Some
