There is no denying that I love mixing up paper ranges together for
added interest. I love a good range, but if I can combine all that
gorgeous goodness together using bits and pieces then I am as happy as
I love mixing and matching different paper ranges – for me there is something special about being able to make them work together and look amazing. For this card I combined Butterfly Garden and Gentleman’s Emporium together and it looks awesome.
I had some time to create with the Gentleman’s Emporium so more and made this single page layout. It turned out even better than what I had imagined. I often find it hard to work with browns and greens, but somehow this range with its pretty softer shades was so much better for me personally. And add some bling and you have a winning combination.
Following in the footsteps of fashions trends we explore the warm yellow
that has the world looking all happy and sunshiny. I too have fallen in
love with this Tuscan Sun color and who wouldn’t? I show you how easy
it is to achieve this warm dark yellow effect by mixing colors, pastes,
and watercolor techniques. Take a look at how I created this watercolor
I am still loving the NEW Joya Clair stamp releases and this one is becoming a sure favourite. Does it feel like that with every stamp set? Yip pretty much. I often think what on earth will I use that set for – and then once I actually do, start colouring and stamping and creating it turns out that I am really loving it. This little shark right here is one of those…
One of my favourite techniques is simply plain inking a background,
and admittedly with all the amazing products and must-haves on the

We have finally gotten some of the amazing AALL& Create stamps and products in South Africa and I am loving them. For art journaling last month we used this amazing stamp set along with some Liquid Acrylics from Prima and Concentrated Watercolours. Together these products make for an amazing end result.
Welcome to today’s blog post with me Jowilna. I finally got my hands on the New Gentleman’s Emporium Range and I love it. I made some quick cards with foiled details, and let me just say that the foiling makes these cards shine even brighter.
I used my patterned papers as a base for my cards, and if you get hold
of the 6×6″ paper pads they are simply perfect for making cards – no
waste, no mess, no fuss.
For the sentiment on this card I cut a strip of the patterned paper and
raise it using foam tape. A few pearls dresses up the card.
For my second card I used some elements from the Collection pack layered
on top of a foiled frame. Note how I dropped the frame off the edge of
the card for a fun look.
I repeated my use of pearls as embellishments and a few ink splats.
