Love this Little Monster

This "boy-oh-boy" range from Carte Bella is so bright and happy, I totally love it !I have use a fine black art line pen and added small dots around the circles to make them stand out and create a border effect.
Another thing I love doing is layering papers and chipboard, the banners and the arrows from Dusty Attic are perfect for this.   

Here you can see where I have doodled a little on the paper with dots and dashes to highlight sections and the title.

Adding White elements to bright pages make them "POP"

There are three layers of arrows around the semi circle to add depth with some machine sewing.

Using beading wire you can wrap it around an "awl" to make it curly to add to the banners, also bending and adding shape to the chipboard gives the layout dimension.

Create Art Journal

2015 - wow !
when did that happen ??
Below is one of the projects that I did to enter the Scapbooking Memories Masters competition.
I love the criteria they give you every year, this one really got my mojo flowing and I love what I created. 
This is my Art Journal cover - I have added lots of photos because it is so dimensional and has layer upon layer.

I have used Bo Bunny paper in the background that also has a pipework pattern.
The edges of the piece are using Dusty Attics Corregated card, painted with Dusty attic silver paint and lots of different Tattered anglel Mists and embossing powders to give the rust effect  

The enamel embossing powder I used gave it that "mottled, mouldy look" I was going for. 

I distressed and bent the chipboard so much to make it look worn and old .
Dusty Attic chippy is so thick and is awesome for doing this to.

I added wire and metal bits and pieces
