A mothers Love

A slightly sadder celebration..mothers day this year marked the first one without my beloved mother in law... she was truely my second mum. In her final days, marked by mothers day she faded slowly and we grew even closer, I found myself nursing her until she moved into palative care and looking after my father in law plus my hubby whos hearts were breaking.
This page is a tribute to a special mum, and my favourite photo with her and her two boys...


Well this was a real challenge..its taken me all month pondering.. this is what i have come up with... the mountains we saw on this hike was the inspiration for the photo shape..

Tutorial for a Mixed Media Background

Hi guys,
Here is a quick how-to for a mixed media background using Dylusions Spray (i used Bubblegum pink) and a texture paste, Water colour cardstock (all available from )plus a stencil that i designed and cut on my Silhouette.

Step 1
Stencil your background using texture paste and dry with a heat tool. Once dry unscrew cap from Spray and drip onto the area where you have stencilled.

Steep 2 Spray the ink you have dripped onto the page with water lightly and tilt
 to move ink around until you are happy with how it looks.  Mop up puddles with a baby wipe (you will use this wipe again later) Now dry completely with your heat tool.

Step 3
Flick some White Picket Fence Dylusions spray onto the page and again dry completely

Step 4.
Remember the baby wipe you set aside?? the one with pink ink on it? Its time to use that.

Cut 8 rough flower shapes that are similar sizes from the baby wipe ( it doesn't matter if its still damp) Stack on top of each other and join together with a brad through the centre. Once joined dry with a heat tool, get close to flower and heat, it will start to shrivel up  (not to close that it burns though!) 

Step 5
Paint the Dusty Attic flourishes with white paint. Arrange around a 4 inch  Photograph and then embelish with the flower you made plus any other embellishments you like. Stick it all down once you are happy with it.

All these products can be found in store at Shop and Crop Scrapbooking where there is a HUGE summer sale on, pop over for a looksee and if you use the code TF5 you will get another 5% your order
