Taking inspiration...

Over the past few weeks I've noticed I'm scrapping less & less & I'm sure there are loads of reasons why this is happening but to counteract this a little & give my mojo a bit of a kick I thought I'd try my hand at a few challenges...I've attempted 2 challenges in one page, which is a first for me.

Tulips in Amsterdam.

Bespoke background using watercolour paints! - I don't do uncontrolled messy but I quite like the finished result.

This page is using both CSI challenge & To be as free as a bird challenge over on the Onwards & Upwards weekend by Jennifer Grace.
For CSI 71, I have used all 5 colours, evidence- circles, birds & paint splatters. testimony- inspired by song title.
For as free as a bird,I experimented transferring paint splats off my messy mat, stuck every thing down with out a ruler( which is unheard of for me!) & added a bird.
Behind the middle photo is a tag with journalling relating to how different this trip was with just the two of us & how we were free to do just as we liked :)


  1. Beautiful page Sheena, always good to try something different. Lovely photos too. x

  2. Love your watercolour background, its really effective x

  3. This looks fabulous Sheena! I love the watercolour splatters, and how the 'messy' placement if these contrasts with the more graphic placement of the lined-up photos! The hidden tag for journaling is great too!

    Thanks for entering my challenge! x

  4. the paper is perfect for those tulip photos. Love the water colour background x
