Scrapmatts - Tule (too-lay) Fog

This month my intention was to do a masculine page with these rustic papers and rustic chipboard pieces, but then I came across this amazing photo and the plan changed.

The was taken in San Luis Obispo County near Cholame, CA on Rt. 41 taken on  17th January 2020 by a friend of my parents. She has taken some of the most amazing photos and I have permission to use and share them, so you will see more as the year goes on.

Lorrie told me that the fog is called Tule (or too-lay) Fog - I love this!

I started the page by adding some texture paste on the base page using the Scrapmatts stencil Gears using a bronzy coloured texture paste

I had 3 different size photos (all the same photo) and have added a photo matt for each using white cardstock then attached them together using foam tape so that you can see a bit more of the one underneath

All of the Scrapmatts chipboard was just simply inked with pinecone ink and attached to the page using clear drying glue

The flowers were handmade using some of the left over patterened paper

These can be found at

I hope that you have enjoyed this layout, I'm looking forward to designing with more of these amazing photos!

Embellish With Flair - Vintage Dolls

Vintage Dolls with Heather

Hi all

I've been a bit slack and not posted for a while, but I have some new and very cute flairs to play with, and I started with these Vintage Doll flairs

I decided to go back to cards again, and challenged myself to just use the card base, this beautiful range from Stamperia, a metre of cotton lace, and a little bit of muslin

I have added dimension by adding layers of different patterned paper, then almost paper tolling the dress and the flowers with foam tape

The last card is an envelope that was in the paperpack, so I have just assembled it and added it to my card and used it as a pocket to add the tags

All the piecesd have been distressed with a distressing tool then had the edges inked with pinecone ink

Thanks for spending time with me
