Paper Haus Sketch - December 2013

This is my layout created using the December Sketch from PaperHaus.  I love how open this sketch is with room for journaling and a nice sized photograph.  I used a picture of Blu-belle who belongs to my daughter and her children.  Blu-belle is such a character, just like the other Redshaw pets - Maddy/Pudding and George (Blu-belle's boyfriend).

And this is the Sketch:

Scrap Around the World - December 2013

This months challenge at Scrap Around the World is really beautiful, so I used photographs of two beautiful women - both inside and out.  Lou and Jo are not just two of my daughters nearest and dearest friends, they are both like daughters to me.  
My journaling reads:  "Take two strong-willed girls - add a good dollop of friendship, stir in lots of laughs and shared interests - allow to mature and what do we have...A friendship that distance cannot harm, respect and Love.  Don't ever change."
And this is the moodboard and sketch for inspiration:


Lindy's Stamp Gang Challenge - December 2013

I created this layout about the lovely Katrina using the December challenge from Lindy's Stamp Gang.  I enjoyed mixing mist colours to create the background and flowers.  Just don't ask me how I got the flowers to be such a dark purple, as I was playing away and that is what happened.

And this is the challenge inspiration:

123 Challenge - December 2013

This months challenge at the 123 Challenge Blog is to use the colour Gold, the word Joy and a Bow/s. I have created my layout about one of the most Joyous people I know, our beloved Jo.  She is creative, loud, loving, giving and so so many other things too.  I could have added other colours to my layout, however I wanted Jo and her fabulous green shirt to be the stars - Green is her favourite colour of all time.

And this is the challenge image:

Limor Webber Share

I'm still going through images and projects working out what I have and haven't shared, and shock horror I didn't get around to sharing the most wonderful experience of creating with Limor Webber in 2013.  Limor came to Scrapbook Fantasies and taught three classes that were absolutely fabulous.  I to my usual form didn't create an Art Journal in that particular class, I created canvas' and here is a sneak peek of what they look like.  Anyone getting a chance is welcome to see them in real life at Scrapbook Fantasies.  So here is my canvas and some other pics from Limors visit.

OUAS - December 2013

I created this layout for the December Challenge at Once Upon A Sketch.  The theme this month was to journal about your favourite month.  I don't exactly have a favourite month as you will tell from my journaling.

My journaling reads:  "I don't have just a month that's special, it's a time.  The early years of Alicia and Lanes lives we explored old gold mines and ghost towns - Rough and ready - but oh os educational for them to learn about their ancestors.  My great grandmother lived in this shack on the gold fields and my grandfather worked on the mine that they are sitting above."

And this is the sketch:

Prima BAP - December 2013

I have created this layout using some lovely photographs of Awoonga Dam, Prima products, Lindy's Stamp Gang Mists, and the December Prima Build-a-Page Sketch.  I wanted to show with my layout how precious water is and the beauty of our water supply, which just happens to be a great play to canoe and sail.

This is the Prima Build-a-Page I used:
