Shop and Crop Scrapbooking - My first ever Demonstration!!!

Hi Everyone!

So a little while ago my local craft group - Coastal Craft Crew held a fundraiser for the the Stomal Therapy Unit for the Coffs Harbour Hospital as one of our friends had to have surgery and is recovering with the help of the Stomal unit...

We decided to give something back....almost $3000 was raised from the day. All money raised went straight to the Hospital to use towards patient care in the Stomal Unit.

We held an all day scrapbooking/craft crop and a mini craft market as well, we had stall holders including Cocoa Vanilla Studios, Shop and Crop Scrapbooking and Alice in Paperland. We can't thank the stall holders enough for packing up their shops and travelling so the croppers and public could shop til they drop...

Also i had the amazing opportunity to do my first demonstration and i wanted to share a few photos of my demo'ing on the day!

I was asked to demonstrate Colour Blast Products http://colourblastaust.blogspot.com.au/ for the wonderful ladies at Shop and Crop Scrapbooking - https://www.shopandcrop.com.au/ 

I am on the design team for both Shop and Crop Scrapbooking and Colour Blast so i was thrilled to represent both these amazing Australian Companies. 

Here is Kylie (Shop and Crop Scrapbooking) on the left and myself on the right ready to go!!

Amy Little from Shop and Crop did an amazing job of setting up the mixed media section of Shop and Crop...including my Art Journal page i created using Colour Blast and Lindy's Stamp Gang products from the store. 

Here i am...a little bit nervous...but having fun demonstrating the amazing Colour Blast Paste, Sprays and Powders...Sharing a few techniques.

And lastly this is a sneak peek of the layout that you could create with the Mixed Media Kit that i have designed for Shop and Crop Scrapbooking!! it is available now....

So now i have caught the demo'ing bug and i am luckily being given a fantastic opportunity to demo  Colour Blast at their stall everyday at this year's Brisbane Craft Expo. Hope to see you there, come and say hello....

Off the Rails Scrapbooking May Blog Hop

Hi Everyone, welcome to the Off the Rails DT Blog Hop!!!

Here is your fun and bright moodboard....

Here is my take on the FUN BRIGHT Blog hop moodboard....a very vibrant and bright rainbow inspired art journal page using Colour Blast Paste and Sprays and Daler-Rowney Acrylic Inks.

I came across this quote from Maya Angelou a while ago and i loved it. It does not cost anything to be happy, supportive and encouraging to someone who may be feeling down or having hard times, that's my take on that quote....

And some close ups of the amazing colour shimmer and shine with Colour Blast Paste and Sprays

Other products used: Black Acrylic Paint, MFT Dies and Stamp set, Gauze, Vellum, Dina Wakely Stamp and stencil,
