Life Captured ..... for Scrap FX

Hi everyone,  today I have my latest layout for Scrap FX to share with you all....
"Life Captured"
Sharing another of my fav photo's with the tiger cubs in Thailand...

for my background of this layout I used the two new stencils... Japanese Garden Stencil and the Oriental Flower Stencil...


I used the Japanese Garden Stencil in full and then taped off most of the Oriental Flower Stencil and used it numerous times to create my background...
I used the Colourblast inks to add my colour to the background...
I used the Life Captured wordlet for my title, and painted it up with Twinkling H2O's .... love how they shimmer, and love the new pan sets now available!!!
I used the #surreal from the #surreal theme pack to add to my photo.


I added the new Nodding Buds Large to embellish my photo cluster along with a few flowers and stems...
I again painted this up using my Twinkling H2O's... just check out that shine...

Well, that's all from me today...

Adrenaline Rush..... for Scrap FX

Hi everybody, thanks for joining me here. Today I'd like to share my latest layout...
I was in a real "painty mood" when I was creating this layout... so I began with just a white cardstock and some paint... everything is a canvas right?? anyway a bit of abstract design and bam! one unique background for my layout... I tried to convey the rush of speed I feel riding, especially on my Harley with an open faced helmet... nothing compares to that adrenaline rush... hence the title lol...
I painted the title "Adrenaline Rush" to match the background colours.... gave it a bit of an ombre look... love this new title and just perfect for my riding photos...
I added the new cranks chippies.... these are nice detailed cogs and come in several different sizes for all your "coggish" is that a real word? needs... these are from the cranks small pack...
Here's a last look at the whole page...
that's all from me today...  thanks for visiting...
till next time
Happy Creating

Whale of a Tale..... for Art and Soul Studio

 Hi everyone, I'm back with you today to share my latest piece for Art and Soul Studio, an intuitive painting "Whale of a Tale"  that I created using the Fluid Media paints from DecoArt....


haha.... did you get my little funny in the title... I know I know it was lame... but the play on words tickled my funny bone.... anyway as the piece says... "always remember to have a whale of a time!"

When I sat down to make a piece for this blog post, I had no idea what to paint... so I started as I always do if inspiration is lacking, and put some colour on paper, and let it just happen... and this was the result today... hope you like it...

I made a little process speed video so you can see how this intuitive piece came together...
Here is the video...
