Layout: Thank You, Sirius



I have a new layout with its own process video for you today! Hooray! I loved using my new Pretty Little Studio papers "right out of the gate" as it were to make a bunch of layouts. And, it's my 25th process video, woot! Of course it had to be with my baby boy, look how handsome he is. I tried to make the black of his fur show up really nice against all the colour and grey. I think it worked. I hope you like it and thanks for watching!

Watercolour Wednesday: Birthday Edition

It's my birthday!!!! I'm 32, which is, I think, officially "old" by Cystic Fibrosis standards. It's pretty damned good, anyhow, so I'm super happy. While I'm not doing well, I'm fully aware I'm doing better than a lot of people, so I'm calling it a win.

For today's watercolour project, I have this piece I've simply titled "whale". Some pieces in my art journal have titles, or quotes or whatever, but this is just pretty simple. To make it, I used my Neocolour II crayons, and for the black I used India Ink watered down a bit. I hope you like it!

Studio Monday: PL Card Organisation

Hi, all! I'm here today with a little peek at how I organise my Project Life cards. I don't have any of the Becky Higgins official cards, but I do have lots of cards from Gossamer Blue, left over from my year sub and using the kits (see PL 2014 tag in the left side bar), and cards from Scraptastic's This Life Noted kit.

In an attempt to use them better, and perhaps use them on my layouts (which you may have seen in my recent videos) I organised the cards by colour. Some of them are just phrases, some of them are journalling spots, but now they're all done by colour so I can see what I have.
Here you can see me sorting them out into the colour categories. I also have a pile off to the side for vellum "cards" that Gossamer Blue included in their kits.
And here you can see them all placed neatly into a little fabric bin I got from Ikea. I also included in this bin the 4x6 plain index cards taht I have, as well as the Simple Stories stickers I use most often, some of the Simple Stories washi sheets I bought, and the small weekly number stamp set that I use on every layout. Now whether I'm doing PL or making a page I have one stop to go for all of my PL cards.

I hope you enjoyed this little peek, and thanks for stopping by! And for process videos and more, please visit my YouTube channel and subscribe!

Layout Explosion #21: Disneyland Spring

I have a new process video up today, and I'm going to try to remember to post things here as well as just on my YouTube, I swear. I'm also going to try to remember to post the NON-video things I've been collecting around here, lol! Anyway, I hope you enjoy the video as well as the layout.


And here's just a photo of the layout for you. Thanks for watching and visiting!
