Fly Free

Fly Free

Using a resist paper for the background I inked with Distress Inks: Tumbled Glass, Peacock Feathers, Peeled paint, Bundled Sage and Antique Linen.
The Prima canvas resist embelishmnets were coloured with lindys Sprays.
I added some doily paper behind the photo. Prima  flowers and embellishment complete the layout. A simple layout but I love the colour palate.

Teresa Collins Gold layout

Teresa Collins Gold Layout

A gold and yellow layout inspired by the Artful Crafts August competition.
What paper would you use for such a layout but Teresa Collins paper of course. I just love the texture and weight of her paper and it was lovely to meet Teresa at CAD in Auckland. As Trina McClune has often said "make sure you scrap yourself as you are important to" I have now done. It was a fantastic weekend with my partner in craft Kathy oates.

Kathy and Sue meet Teresa Collins at her class at CAD 2013
