Jot Magazine - “Grade 10”

February saw the girls, and I, heading back to school.
Starting off the new school year.
Perfect opportunity to scrap a page for
Jot Magazine’s back to school segment.

Now normally this pattern paper would scare me.
But I have done a complete 180
And now love the challenge that these papers bring.

This paper was perfect for this theme.
New doors and new opportunities await her.

IMG_6611

Can’t wait to see where she goes in the future.

IMG_6613

Looking forward to see what door she opens.

I’ve used pieces from the February Cocoa Daisy kits
To create this page.
Only adding the doily, flair and alphas
From my own supplies.

Jot Magazine – “Popcorn?”

Each issue of Jot Magazine contains
A creative prompt section by Sian.
Issue 9 is out and I was inspired to create
Using no colour.

 

IMG_6767

That is a tough one for me.
So instead of pops of colour
I have used pops of texture.

IMG_6768

Some texture paste circles, thanks to stencil from The Crafter’s Workshop.
A wash of watercolour paint.
Backed my photo with a card from Cocoa Daisy 

IMG_6769

Some pattern paper for dimension
And a “naked” flair from Flutterby Designs 

IMG_6770

All topped off with a sprinkle of foam stickers.

IMG_6820

It totally tied in withe pieces from the February kit from Cocoa Daisy 

IMG_6821

Perfect for documenting this moment.

Jot Magazine - “Family”

Jot Magazine issue 9 holds a section on hand stitching.

IMG_6670

Hand stitching is something I dread.
Makes me think of mending clothes!
But I was up for the challenge.
Instead of outlining my photo with a pen
I stitched around it.

IMG_6671
I also added some off cuts
From my “Änzac Parade” page

IMG_6672

And some wood veneer from Flutterby Designs

IMG_6673

Everything else was pulled from the February Cocoa Daisy kits.

IMG_6675

Why, yes, that is ribbon under the dymo tape.
And why, yes, that is ribbon up in the top corner.

Loved that Cocoa Daisy card
The quote was just perfect.

“Deer Paul”

Sometimes it is good to document those “had to be there” moments.
This is one of those.
