Leaves you feeling dimensional!

Well, I hope everyone is in the middle of a very happy and safe Easter and I hope the Easter Bilby visits you with lots of sweet goodness tomorrow morning!!
I just thought I'd put up a couple of pics of a mirror I have done with some more WOW chipboard. I have used a a bit of chipboard fraying to make the leaves and butterflies look more dimensional and give them a bit of depth and movement. If you'd like to see the technique please drop over to the WOW DT blog and have a look, I have left detailed steps with pics!! I have tried to give you some different views here so you can get the feel for the dimension. The back ground is some lovely printed napkins!
Take care of each other,
see you soon!

Black With Two... April 15??

Sorry Girls, I'm a bit late with this again, but better late than never! 
How striking is a black background?  I just love it, it makes everything pop!  I think it can be intimidating sometimes to try using soft colours with black but rather than over powering the gentle hues I actually think it gives a beautiful clean background that helps deepen all of your colours.  So here is my BW2 layout for this challenge...
That is my baby girl meeting my baby boy, seems like only yesterday!
This layout's criteria was black with fabric and yellow!  I truly did struggle with that because yellow is NOT my favourite colour.  But I am pretty pleased with how it come out.  I actually have had a heap of fun getting totally off track with hand dying! As I didn't have any yellow pigments AT ALL (no paint, no ink, no dye, no nothing, not even a piece of yellow paper!!!!) and with no LSS to pop into I had to be a bit creative and so I hand dyed some open weave muslin with some household products and food! It was great fun!! And I think it worked really well!  And I dyed a beautiful piece of vintage floral print fabric I had yellow as well and used it as my mats!  So come on girls get your creative caps on and get over to BW2 with a link to your entry, can't wait to see them all!

Take care of each other,
see you soon.

April 1 Black with 2

I'm so sorry this didn't go out on the 1st like it was suppose to!  It loaded without pics! But I arrived home last night, so here are the pics!!
The challenge this month was BLACK WITH LAVENDER AND GLITTER!! What an awesome challenge and here is my layout:

I did the background with my Prima masks and Tsukineko glue pad and Mica D'Lights (the bestest most grown up glitter EVER!! Yum!)
I love how this layout turned out.  I am hoping to get the time to explain why I used what I did to create this layout, it completely describes my Kassidy, he is such a complicated, deep boy!  Dressing up and surprising me at the assembly just made him so happy, I love being apart of his journey!!

Hope to see all your layouts up on the Black with 2 site really soon! Don't forget there will be another challenge on the 15th of the month!  

Take care of each other,
see you soon!
