Getting Messy by Sar

Recently on retreat in Melbourne I was lucky enough to spend time with 25 amazing women, all with such talent and inspiration to share.  I sought out the very talented Ebony Van Der Starre and asked her to teach me a thing or two about getting messy.  For anyone that knows me...I don't DO messy!  I am a very clean scrapper, everything has pretty straight lines and my hands don't get very messy.  Well...can I just tell you...Ebony has changed me!!!

I have found texture, and texture paint, and paint, and stamping....and and and...I'm SO excited about it!  Thanks Ebony!

Here's a layout I did yesterday, using some texture stuff...but not the white one, its a kind of clear one that takes on the colour of paint or mist you use with it.  I didn't plan how this would turn out, which is so unlike me...instead I just went for it!

Blitz Babes - my daughters and their little dancing friends at a recent eisteddfod, aren't they all just super cute!  I actually kinda ended up covering up most of my messiness with my photo...

A closeup of the gorgeous little button from Purple Pumpkin.

Here's another that isn't quite as messy, but uses a paint technique that Crystal showed me at retreat, thanks Crystal!

This layout is a scraplift from former Purple Pumpkin DT member, Tara.  I love Tara's work and was looking for something kind of minimalist, and the page my layout is based on jumped out of Tara's blog right at me.

Classic Moment, a layout of my funny boy Cooper on Christmas Day wearing a funky plastic moustache out of a xmas cracker.
And a closeup of the Purple Pumpkin button, doiley & twine that I've used as well as the tickets popping out from underneath the photo...LOTS of PP goodness happening here!
Thanks for visiting the Purple Pumpkin blog today, see you again soon!

to your site when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?

I think what you posted was actually very reasonable.
However, what about this? suppose you were to
create a awesome headline? I mean, I don't want to tell you how to run your blog, however what if you added a post title that makes people desire more? I mean "Getting Messy by Sar" is a little plain. You ought to glance at Yahoo's home
page and note how they create news headlines to grab people to open the links.
You might add a related video or a picture or two to get people interested
about what you've written. In my opinion, it could make your blog a little livelier.
