Her Majesty. Or should that be His Majesty?

Oh my goodness, I'm taking the most exciting online class at the moment at Stash to Treasure! It's by Bethany Kartchner called 'All About Me'. And whilst I don't have any plans to make an album all about me (which is what she's made) I am simply loving the mixed-media techniques she's teaching.


I put some of them into practice for this layout I made for the Get Picky Inspiration Challenge. Here's the inspiration piece so hopefully you can see where I was going with this!


Can you believe my background cardstock actually started off white! But once I added a million layers of impasto paste, gesso, acrylic paint, paper and Distress Inks you can no longer tell!


I really loved the pop of yellow alphas in the ad, and knew that was something I simply must add. Love the colour of these foam alphas by Pink Paislee.


And the lovely Sassafras Foldies reflected the pinks and reds and purples in the ad. Perfect!!


Can you read this funny conversation I had with Munchy a while ago? The punch line probably makes more sense if you know that we own a Buckingham Palace money box!
