Texture Paste

While I have been blog hopping and pinning on Pinterest, I have discovered Texture PAte. Now its probably been out there for years but I've seen some very effective scrapbook pages that have used it. I inherited a pot from somebody who was throwing it away and I invested in a couple of masks and made a couple more. My first attempt was on the page I showed for the blog hop, it can be seen under the vines. 
Last night I made a card and I kind of like it. This is not my normal style and I think I'm still getting to grips with the whole mixed media style, but I kind of like it. The jury is still out and I think I need to play a lot more to find my comfort zone with the paste but its definitely worth persevering.

Vine Tutorial

On Monday morning I took part in the UKScrappers blog hop, who would have predicted the response to the flowers I had made for the layout. In particular the rose vine. I was flabbergasted, but promised I would let everybody know how I had done it. If anybody does make one of these vines please could you credit me and if posted in a blog I would appreciate a link back to me.
I was absolutely inspired by the gorgeous Prima vines, I have purchased many but due to the cost they remain in my stash, I am too frightened to use them because they are not cheap. They fall into the category of  'waiting for a special projrect'. This made me challenge myself to see if i could make something similar.

Over the last few years sources one of my favourite sources of inspiration and a 'go to' for getting your creativity going again has become Pinterest. I think I use it almost as much as google. I recently saw this layout and knew I wanted to lift it. Here is the result

I loved its simplicity and I was able to use a photo that is almost 30 years old. See those scrabble type tiles, Ive had them years and was happy I could use some on here.

Birthday Cards for Men

Cards for men really are quite difficult, so when I find a colour combination that isn't just blue and can work for men I use it. One of my favourite combinations is a bright blue, bright red and white. I think its modern and bright. Over the last weekend I made a few cards with this colour scheme, those of you who visit me regularly will also know I like simple. We have worked our way through all the previous cards I made for the boys at work so another batch was called for beginning with this one.
