Hi!  My name is Natasha & I’m the mother of two wonderful children & the wife of an amazing, supportive man. I am a floral designer by day and a scrapbook designer by night. I love to incorporate different techniques in my work and use a variety of elements. Every day I am inspired by the work and talent of others, and I hope to be able to inspire others with my work as well.

These are our really really good friends Roland and Jill....we have been truly blessed to have such fabulous friends.....they are the type of people that will always be there for you no matter what.

Here are some of the details

Can't wait to see what you create!

How I made my background for some of my June ScrapThat! projects!

Hey everyone Laura here!  I love these papers and I love to alter my pages a bit so the two worked perfectly together!  I thought I would show how I made the background on a couple of my layouts!

You will need;
a mask
paper towel
molding paste
old credit card or paint spatula

so figure out where you want your mask at

then add your molding paste and spread it using your credit card

carefully lift the mask

allow to dry

once dry, spray your mists

and add other colors

bunch your paper towel and dab your sprayed areas

you can repeat if you think you need more color

To finish I added some gesso around the edge of the paper

Here is the finished result!

I also used this technique on these backgrounds with this months kit!

Thanks for stopping by and I can't wait to see your creations!
