Paperific - Melbourne Show grounds 30th August - 1st September

I'm at Paperific this weekend (Saturday & Sunday) running a make and take on stand 22 -Paper Magic by Kira Rose. Some of my off the page work and scrapbook layouts will be available on show to see too.
My steam punk clock is also on display round at stand 32 - Crafters cupboard. 
My clock is advertising the class I am teaching for Crafters cupboard on the 14th September.
If anyone is visiting Paperific make sure you come and say hi!
The 'topper' in the centre of this canvas is the make and take we are running at Paperific. It can easily be made into a quick card, used on a scrapbook page or made into a beautiful canvas.

Girly wreath

So this is something a little different from me. It's a girly wreath I've made from a polystyrene wreath and using modge podge I've covered it with strips of ripped  paper (I used the needle and thread paper range from kaisercraft) and lace. When dry I've sprayed it with pearl glimmer mist so it sparkles and tied some extra lace on. 
I've die cut a mannequin from paper and chipboard using a Tim holtz alterations sizzix die and stick them together. I have then inked the edges using tattered rose distress ink and then used crackle accents over the whole mannequin. I had an old hair clip that had a large material flower on- ive pulled the clip part off and used glimmer mist sprays to change the colour of the flower. I've also made more flowers using paper left from the wreath and used a sizzix die to make some small flowers which I have glued onto the wrath at either side of the large flower. To finish my wreath off I have used some decorative pins that my lovely friend Carly makes (I have mentioned Carly in a previous post- check out her blog)

My layout- in a magazine!!

Okay, so it's only in an advert but its still published!!
This is a layout I did for "paper magic by Kira rose " to show what you can use masks for. My design is on the left. 

Steam punk clock

This is my new steam punk clock! I have designed and made this clock especially for an online store called Crafters cupboard.  They are based in Berwick,  Victoria and I will be teaching mixed media classes for them starting with this clock on the 14th September.
