Update of Baroque Gallery

I have just added some lovely pages to the Gallery for the Baroque stencil.  Many of you will have this tucked away, now is the time to get it out and create a beautiful page.  It is also a lovely shape for a 3D Title.  You can chalk it or ink it to tone in with the photos on the page and it is easily embossed.

Chalking Class in Penrith

I thought I would share with you the lovely pages created by the Ladies in Penrith at a Chalking class we had recently.


Joan created this beautiful page with the Bahamas stencil.


A close-up of Joan’s work. Note how the stamped pencils and school bag have been enhanced with chalk pencils. Joan used the School theme kit for this decoration.


Beautiful page by Fiona, not always easy to use chalk on a dark page but here she has used the chalks on both the page and the paper shapes.


A close-up to show the chalking on the paper, here she has used two colours in the chalking to bring the colours of the page and photos together.


Lovely page by Chris bringing lilac and yellow together. Chris used the Bahamas stencil and we finished off the ‘shape’ with chalking, again using both colours to tone in with the photos.


Great page by Jen using Bilboa-Macau stencil. She used red and blue in the chalking to enhance the idea of the flags in the photos. Note the title was also done in both colours.


Lovely page by Karen using only one photo and the Caribbean stencil. The chalking completed the shape of the stencil without taking away from the photo or the journaling.


Ho Ho Ho – great page by Debbie, I love the Christmas colours – just like the lights in the photos!!


Close-up of Debbie’s page – Rome-Tokyo is a great stencil for chalking!

Christmas is almost upon us

20 weeks to Christmas. 

For all the Mums and Grans out there with a little bit of spare time!!!

How about this canvas for a Christmas present.  Isn’t it great!

Odile Bordeaux of Europe created this canvas, she used both the Mars-Venus and the Rome-Tokyo stencils.
