November Mood Board Challenge

With Jot Magazine


Jot magazine has a vibrant mood board challenge for November.

I just love vibrant, happy colours.

It inspired me to create a birthday card for my best, long time friend.

I dabbed acrylic paint to a floral stencil. Painted some shimmer on green and pink parts. Applied a light media paste which I coloured gold through a tear drop stencil. Printed ‘Happy Birthday’ with an elegant swirl on a laser printer and gold foiled with my recently brought Minc. Added a sticker, ribbon and flower.
Loving how it turned out.

I am enjoying using stencils and experimenting with distress inks and acrylic paint.

Thanks Jot Magazine for the mood board challenge.




Jot Magazine – Challenge 11 entry

My Christmas card inspirations come from Jot Magazines’ Mood Challenge Board 11.

I’m loving the technique I experimented with, especially the Grunge Paste and Perfect Pearls.

More of the Christmas cards I made can be found here.  Below is one of the cards.

Thanks Jot Magazine!

Here is a sample of some of the Christmas cards that will be sent out this year to family and friends.

All lovingly made with some help from craft classes at Hastings and Mt Martha.

Each one is unique!
