For this layout of Mia I decided to try a watercolour background using Faber Castell Gelatos, water and baby wipes. I love the effect on the patterned paper! I have written a note to Mia and hidden it behind the photo.
I used an old photo taken of three children of scrappers! Leonie Neal-Dawson's daughter Maggie, my youngest daughter Ella and Kerry Murray's daughter Michaela taken at Eastern Beach in Geelong a few years ago.
I used part of APieceofCakeDesigns mini kit, Crafters Workshop brick stencil, Black paint by Derivan from Molossi, Luggage tag I coloured with Dylusions Mists, Imagine stamp by Kaisercraft and Ranger black ink, Faber Castell gelatos, enamel dots.
For this next layout I used Faber Castell Gelatos and baby wipes to blend, Technique Tuesday small cirle stamps, Ranger ink, enamel dots, washi tape, "good times" vinyl embellishment (old from my stash)

Just after we had moved in, being knee deep in boxes I journed to The Hunter Valley to attend my second Mojo Retreat - travelling with my beautiful Ebony, we took off for a fun, relaxing, creative 4 day
I have been busy working on DT goodies for Molossi - when I received a shadow box with my DT monthly box of goodies, I thought I would keep the design simple, and use it as an interchangeable home décor piece - for either 9x9 layouts or photos!
Products I used: Molossi shadow box, Derivan black paint - Molossi, Pritt Gel Glue, Fabric Flowers from Molossi, Mont Marte modelling paste.
I had fun altering this letter "Y"! I used black and white chevron washi tape, Tiny Koala Craft paper roses from Molossi, black and white twine, and words cut from patterned paper.

I am renaming this gorgeous Molossi MDF tree The Tree of Love, or The Tree of Hearts!!!
Products used : from Molossi: The Love Tree: Derivan Matisse Transparent Gesso
Student fine art white paint by Global
Student fine art red paint by Global
Chroma Student Arcylic paint in Magenta
Tim Holtz typewriter words
These trees can be used in many ways: paint them pink or blue and use them for guests to sign for Baby’s First Birthday!
They can also be painted white for wedding table centrepieces – or as “money trees at a wedding”
They would also make an amazing 21st present painted in the fave colour of the birthday boy or girl
They would also be fabulous for a Christening, Baby Shower, Mother’s Day Present – the list is endless!
I am going to mix media the tree and show you how easy it is to make it look a little different!!
I mixed some Derivan Matisee Transparent Gesso Pastel Primer with some white Student paint and gave the tree 2 coats of this mixture : remember to paint both sides!
Next I mixed some Global Student impasto paint in red with some Global white and made a pretty pink colour. I coated the tree twice in this colour.
Next I took my old favourite some modelling paste and mixed it with some bright pink paint.
I dabbed this mixture all over my Love Tree and left it to dry.
I love the effect : it looks like floaty fairy floss! By using the Modelling Paste it has given the tree depth and of course my favourite word texture!
Next I took Tim Holtz typewriter positive words and randomly placed them over the tree on both sides.
Next I used some very fine white craft ribbon and tied bows on either side of the tree, again randomly.
I imagine this tree to be the centrepiece of a lolly buffet at a Birthday Party for a baby Girl turning 1!
What a beautiful keepsake for years to come.
