Grow by Di Garling

Di Garling is back with another stunning mixed media layout for us! Her second kit, Grow, is nothing less than spectacular! She mixes teal and brown for quite the dramatic look. Perfect for highlighting any tropical photos or a sweet little angel like she did.

Di certainly knows how to pack a punch with color. She mixes the fabulous 7Dots Studio paper from Thoughts Keep er Collection with Jack in the Pulpit Teal from Lindy’s Stamp Gang to get a glowing shade of teal that makes you feel like you are floating on water. Does it do that to you or is it just me?

The kit comes with just about all materials needed to make the layout (stamp, stencil and texture paste separate) – see product description for complete details. When you purchase this kit, you get access to her online tutorial.  It’ll be just like taking a class down under from Di direct except you won’t get those views but you do get the comforts of your own home (or wherever you are crafting).

I had so much fun with Di’s video and kit that I was thoroughly inspired for the bonus page. I happen to have a piece of paper lying around that was more than perfect to match and pick of the orange she popped in. Not to toot my own horn or anything but I am in LOVE with this layout and so excited to find some great photos to hang this one up on the wall! Hope you like it too…

They do make a great pair of layouts don’t they? 🙂

Still to come – more Dusty Attic Chipboards and a whole bunch of new 2Crafty pieces. I had hoped to add the 2Crafty in at the same time as Di’s kit since she is one of their designers. If you like her works like I know you do – you are sure to be seeing more and more 2Crafty pieces in our store front so you can load up on the pieces she uses in her work. But like everything else, I fell short on time. I will be adding them over the coming days so feel free to check back in often.

New kits.. end of this week – Jaya Raghuvanshi. End of the month – the double kit from Gabrielle and Gerry!!!!! It’ll be a 4-page kit – one from each of them plus a bonus page for each from me. 2 videos, 4 layouts… you are going to like. The kit will feature a set of water color pencils from Prima. I know a lot of people have been inquiring about them and many a little gun-shy to try them out of fear. Well Gabi and Gerry are SURE to make you comfortable and excited over them. You’ll leaner just how much they can turn plain white watercolor paper in to masterpieces.

Thats it for me for now. Hubby is calling and wondering when we can get this Memorial Day barbecue started! Wishing you all a happy Memorial Day (here in the States) and to everyone else – Happy Sunday (Monday Australia)!
