A weekend with " Lisa Oxley mixed media class "


I am back with another share from my time at Camp Mojo - the retreat I attended last week in the gorgeous Hunter Valley.. While at retreat I was lucky enough to take a class with the super talented Lisa Oxley and play with a ton of mixed media goodness... taking this class takes me right back to when I started scrapbooking 10 years ago and I loved then the same techniques that we did in this class. I used to love finding stuff around my home to add to my layouts and this class reminded me how much I loved it then and still do now.. I really should go back and do more mixed media as I miss the process so much!! 

Any who.. this is Lisa's layout that we used as for our interpretation .. just amazing.. 

I managed to actually make two layouts in the process and spread the class contents across the two layouts.. so here is my first interpretation..

Us- Layout by Bernii Miller

I then creaeted a similar layout, although different colour scheme and a few less embellishments..

I love chancing my photos over to black and white lately.. gives me more freedom to use so many more colours on the one layout..

How adorable are these flairs :) they are from the super talented and hilariously funny Anita over at Flutterby Designs.. TRUST me you want to check out her site!!  

I sill feel like I am playing catch up with unpacking from my retreat , with the ton of laundry that needs to be complete still, scrapbooking stuff to unpack and then today I was so lucky to get my BoBunny DT box - that I now need to find a place to store it all!! Totally first world problems I know - but I can not get creative and scrap with all this caos still going on ...

Thanks so much for stopping by..

Till next time 
Much love
