Boy pages always take a little more thought from me. My lads are not the 'flowers type'. But, on this page I have made masculine type flowers..well, I tried to anyway!

My flowers are strips of paper, with one long edge of the paper strip distressed. I have stressed the edges simply by using a fancy edged ruler as a guide to tear my paper strips, instead of cutting them. I then rolled up each paper strip and placed them onto punched out circles that had been topped with glossy accents. Very simple

Several layers of paper and fabric were used on my page to create movement and grunge.

Journalling strips complete my page.

Crepe paper is a favorite scrapping item of mine, its very versatile and scrunches up delightfully well.


Today Camden passed his learners driving test and I am feeling very afraid as now he is going to want to drive every where we go. Boo Hooo!!

Tomorrow morning we head to Dunedin to drop our dear daughter at University. Its going to be one of those happy / sad days...and scary because Camden is already fighting for the drivers seat ..NO I say!!

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend. xx

Here is my finished latest painting

Here is my finished latest painting
This one is a hit with all the males who have seen it. I must say that I did not really enjoy painting a truck and it will be a one off for sure! Uncle David is now the owner of this one. Next project on thepainting scene is going to be a fisherman- for my Uncle Graeme who is wanting me to paint him something. Really need to get onto this one!

Finished at last- I think

At last I think I have pretty much finished this painting for my uncle. Do hope he likes it.
