My Word For 2013

I have finally settled on a word for this year, well two words but they go together!
I have been on a real learning journey for the past 12 months, I have been learning more about myself and have been learning how to be a better, smarter more creative person!
But most of all learning what it really is that I want! I am still on that journey of searching, but now I know what it is I am seeking.

First and foremost I am SEEKING FREEDOM!!
Freedom to be ME and the freedom  to be able to express my authentic self.
I am seeking all the things in the canvas above, but I also know that all of that will come once I SEEK the FREEDOM to be Me!!

 I have created this canvas as a reminder to stay true to me so that I will be able to achieve the Freedom that I SEEK!!
 I am looking forward to this journey with all its ups and downs along the way! I hope to emerge at the end of this year without all the emotional binds that have held me back for too long!!

Australian Scrapbook Ideas - Issue 18 - Tried & Tested Mix'd Media Inx "Leaning Tower of Pisa""

 Back again with the last layout from the Mix'd Media Inx article in Issue 18 in the Australian Scrapbook Ideas magazine.  Leonii took this photo of the Leaning Tower of Pisa on her holiday overseas last year!!! This one shows the use of mixing the Mix'd Media Inx with modelling paste then used over stencils!!

I went live with my facebook page tonight and I am blown away by the response already!!!
Thank you so much everyone from the bottom of my heart!!! :)

Tip:  Blend your Mix’d Media Inks with modelling paste to create different coloured modelling paste. You can use the ink pads or the re inkers for this technique.
Tip:  Mix’d media Inx Blend and run easier over the top of Modelling Paste or Gesso and is absorbed more on plain paper but can still be softened and blended into the paper when spritzed with water.

Australian Scrapbook Ideas - Issue 18 - Tried & Tested Mix'd Media Inx "Picture Perfect"

 Back again with the third layout from my Mix'd Media Inx article in Issue 18 in the Australian Scrapbook Ideas magazine. I never get tired of taking photos of my gorgeous daughter, I miss her so much now she has moved to Brisbane, over 10 hours away!!
I was so excited to learn today that this layout went to CHA!! Made my day, been one of those days where I have been feeling overwhelmed by everything and over tired! This was just what I needed!
You can check it out on the Australian Scrapbook Ideas Facebook Page HERE.

Tip:  Sand or use a distressing tool over machine stitching to create a distressed worn look.

Tip: Use water to blend the Mix’d Media Inx into your project to create softer more blended look.
