SOOOOOO Inspired!!!

Hello! Well I spent the weekend at the Scrap Expo in Brisbane and have been SO inspired! Not only were there lots of goodies to be had, the work on show by other scrappers was mind blowing!  I spent the weekend with my Ma (we go together every year) and was surprised by my scrappin bestie Kaz who turned up on Saturday - yay!! We had a blast!

I got to meet two of my fave scrappers there ....I think I may have embarrassed myself a little ...I'm such a dag... it was a big thrill for me though!!

First of all I met Jess from 'A Happy Scrappy Place' and she was just as sweet in person as she is on her blog!! Here are her details.... be sure to have a squizzy - she's just great!! .

I was also lucky enough to do a class with the most amazing artist/scrapper Louise Nelson...WOW! Her work is just so incredible and she is so lovely - I was star struck!! It was an honour to meet her and the layout following was inspired by her class (I did start a layout in the class but it's not finished yet!). Here are her details too

It's a little 'mixed media' background - collaged dictionary pages. I then used blobs of paint and distress ink and kept spraying it with water to let everything drip and mix (lots of messy fun!). I used some mist and clear crackle paint to give it a bit more texture, then had fun decorating it!  It is very different for me but I want to try lots of different things and this is definately different!!
Thanks for popping by!
