Here today to share a mixed media piece ive been working on in the background
for some weeks. 
I was cleaning out the closet, and found a Carnivale mask, and a pair of steampunk goggles....
ok Ive got something brewing in the brain.......

I had an old Twiddley bitz frame, that was painted a hideous tangerine colour, that id
discarded, so I grabbed it and wrapped it in Tim Holtz tissue paper....
Then I used Lumiere Paints,
Halo Blue green gold
Antique Brass
and some black gesso....

Then I decorated the frame, using a Finnabair style technique
( i only did one corner, I didnt want to overdo it and take away from her face!)
I embellished the corner and added lace filigree pieces to the other corners.
Then I took the Carnivale mask, ripped off the feathers, and diamontes
and gave it a gold and green halo paint job!
Then I embellished her with gears, lace and the steampunk goggles...( that was tricky,
the goggles didnt fit her face...grrrrr)
I added some exotic golden lace from Februarys Scraps of Darkness kit and a few
Prima junkyard findings.......

So here she is, Metropolis, my Steampunk Goddess!
This photo above is straight on, she seems to look down upon her subjects, 
The next photo,ive taken her photo standing looking up at her hanging on the wall,  
its the best view by far!

Here are some close ups of the frame corner and the inside of her head.

I hope you enjoyed my steampunk frame....Thanks for stopping by....

Im here today to share my first layout with the June Scraps of Darkness kit, Sindi's Summer Day Kit.

There are so many wonderful things in this kit to help you create a summery layout, or in my case since its winter in Australia, a Whimiscal Magical fantasy layout using my FAV character
from the Wonderland Movies, The Mad Hatter.

Ive used many elements from the kit, and its amazing add ons.....

First the Main kit,
Then came the paper add on and the co-ordinating paper....

Then there is the Floral add on,
Then the signature Colour add on

Then there's the Embellishment add on

and last but not least the Creativity add on......

I cant wait to get into my second layout, and bring some more wonderland to the table!

Please  stop by our Facebook page, there's lots to see and lots to do and you dont have to buy the kits to join in the fun.......
Meow for now!

Hello scrapers....
Today I'm here to share my latest layout, Edward scissorhands. 
This was so much fun. Obviously they don't make chipboard scissor hands, so I took a scrap fx set of mechanical wings and altered them by cutting out my own blades and joining them with brads.
Then I couldn't get a good picture of Edward, so I got a picture of scissorhands, but it didn't have his hands in it, so I found a pic of his hands and shrunk it down and cut them out and added them.....cheating I know but it worked.
