I am on the Silhouette UK Blog today with a quick tutorial on how to fill in text with patterns. This is ideal if you don’t have the right paper for your layout. The Silhouette Store has lots of printable patterns!
Please come over and have a look!

Today’s layout I made for a challenge over at the Mercy Tiara group. It was a tough challenge, I tell you!
The “recipe” was:
1. A theme of music and/or movies. This can be about a favourite song or movie or just a song or movie title as the title for the layout or even song lyrics or a quote from a movie
2. A grid style in part or all of the layout
3. Something black & white
5. A simple outline or sillouhette image, this can be stamped, stencilled or hand drawn
6. I’m scared to say it, but …. No letter stickers!
In addition to this list, there was also a tic tac toe challenge to go with it, and I also incorporated a line from the tic tac toe: Use a frame, stitching and use a list on your journalling.
And here it is! Unfortunately, these colours are hard to photograph!
Thanks for popping by and see you very soon!
This is a very small Throw Back Thursday, since the layout is only two weeks old! But I completely forgot to blog about it when I finished it, so here it finally is!
I started this page ages ago, in May… I applied gesso to the patterned paper background and then smeared some gold paint. Unfortunately, I hated the final result. Some people said to not give up and keep adding layers of mixed media. And that’s what I did. I wanted to make a layout about my dad, and because of the content of the letter, I knew I wanted the layout to be messy… hence I rescued the page.
So I added lots of ink sprays, modelling paste, more paint, splatters, stamping… And now I actually love how it’s turned out!
Here it is:
I know this is not my usual style, but I love getting messy with mixed media from time to time!
Here’s another close up:
Today I have a new layout that I scraplifted from the talented Raquel Bowman. I found it on Pinterest and I thought the style was so “me”, plus I have been loving circles lately, so it was perfect! You can see the original here.
And this is my layout:
I used Cocoa Vanilla Studio “You Rock” collection. It is such a gorgeous collection and I still have plenty! I think I can manage at least another 4 layouts (or even more if I maximise my scraps!)
I did some hand stitching in two of the circles, but the piercing guide that I used was only so big, so the stitching is not very near the edge as I would have normally done it, but I think it looks quite good anyway 🙂
Here are two more close ups:
Thanks for visiting today and I hope I’ll see you soon!
This layout is for the August challenge over at For the Love of Pretty Paper. The challenge is to make a layout about the seaside, but with a twist! You have to use the colour yellow, something circular, washi tape, half used sheet of stickers and washi tape.
And here is my layout:
I also decided to use a large photo and to make clusters of embellishments, which are the latest two prompts for UK Scrap Addicts. A couple more close ups.
I used the Endless Summer collection by Cocoa Vanilla Studio, which is absolutely gorgeous!
Thanks for visiting again, and read you soon!
