Hello Ladies,

I have been nominated by my Good friend Lisa Novogrodski in the BIG BLOG HOP

Its great to share our talents and get to know new designers and scrap artists

All around the world.

1.      What am I working on?



At the moment, I have 4 journal pages in various stages of nothingness

1 layout that is is desperate need of inspiration…..its been torn down twice so far!
and I got this finished on Sunday for the DT of Scraps of Darkness!!!!


2.      Hows does my work differ from others of its Genre?


Well that’s a tough one, I really love the steampunk genre and tend to try to put gears in everything I do! Even some of my girly

Layouts have gears… I guess they are “my thing”.


3.      Why do I create what I do?


I have always loved making things visually different, and one day I stumbled on a picture of a scrapbooking layout in a google search,

I followed the trail to find Jennifer Snyders gallery, then the SOD forum and Ive been hooked ever since.

I love all things vampire and Halloween and Scraps of Darkness appealed to me…..I still remember the day I achieved the forum title Vampyre Queen!


4.      How does my process work….


LOL my process is throw everything on the table around me and hope for the best….there is no process….dont know the meaning of the word.



Id love to nominate the following ladies in this blog adventure:

Rebecca Morris -


Bex is a eclectic steam punk/Grunge queen, her layouts and OTP jump right out at you!

Her work is unique and fascinates your senses.


Jennifer Snyder -


What can I say about Jen, her gorgeous style is second to none! She is the reason I scrap

I found her layout on a google search once and WOW Ive never looked back!



Vera Aunty Vera Scrap and Craft -


Vera is a talented artist and from what I see a great cook!

Vera doesn’t get much of a chance to scrap but when she does watch out!

Her style is AWESOME!


So Ladies, I hope you have enjoyed my little blurb here, and your short stay,

I love the idea of keep these blogs living and breathing, this is our creative world and I love it!!!!!
Look to these ladies blogs next Monday, the 4th August.......for their amazing talent!

Welcome ladies to my challenge.....

This mid month challenge is to embrace the mixed media and art journal pages and our creative aspects of art! All Art Journal pages and Canvas projects can be posted here .
This month I want you to use old vintage pages from a book, doesnt matter how you use it, as long as its a vintage or old page from a book that is altered in some way....
I showed you what I did in my WCYDW post.....I used a stamp and a punch to alter my paper pages....
This page below is the left page above, with some additions.....I stamped a couple words
on paper and added the saying myself.....
My pages were cut roughly, not square and the stamps are from different sets for effect.......
you can also use magazine pictures from glossy mags....

This page was me just mucking around with my blog name!
I love this womans sassy outfit! meeeoooow!
So ladies I want to see those journal pages, you can make a tag to if you dont have a journal, or a page.....but get scrapping and show me what you can do!
Mish over and out!

You can enter as many projects as you'd like, otherwise our Standard Challenge Rules are in effect.

Challenge closes at 8pm EST on May 14th, 2014.

Here is the wonderful RAK that is up for grabs:


So lets go scrapping ladies!


Hello Ladies
This week for WCYDW Im tying this in with the Art Journal challenge
that im running from today as well......
I thought I could give you a few hints and ideas for your journal pages!
Old books, I love them and finding ways to use them in my scrapbooking is fun!
I got all inspired by my CT buddy bex, remember her chocky box in February.....
Well Ive been dying to this since then....
so here we go:
you find a page from a vintage or old book, and you get your fav stamps out.'Now I had
a humungous sunflower stamp that I was given and I had no idea what to do with, it was too big!
So, I got a page ready in my journal using some TH distress paints and some watercolour pencils.

Then I grabbed my large stamp and archival ink and because I had no block big enough
I got the brilliant idea to use my C plate from my cuttlebug! ta da instant acrylic block!
and stamped my flower onto a page.
now for the fussycutting.....grrrrr I hate this part!
then I used matte medium to attache to my page.
so now, I wanted to add some more colour and paper for that messy grungy look!
Then I used a charcoal pencil to outline my flowers and papers.......
im happy so the saying.....hmmmmmm
So this is my finished result, Im happy with it, but you can go as messy, grungy, use stencils, and modeling paste and all sorts,
this was the opposite page......its as yet unfinished.

and this one is from another set of pages im working on......
youll see more of this one over in my Art Journal challenge
So Ladies, lets get those old vintage books and put them to good use,
this is a fun way to use some of your fav stamps that you havent used for a while
in a new and fun way......
Use a punch as I did for the flower designs, and dont for get that crazy trick,
if you dont have a acrylic block big enough and you have a cuttlebug, then use your plates!
(great for multiple stamping at once with more than one stamp)
Happy scrapping!
