My new team Viva Las Vegastamps


I am soooooo stoked to be a new design team member for VLVS
I simply LOOOOOVE these stamps and I can't wait to show you what I have created with them!

These are my application pieces with a little explanation of how they came about.

"Please Notice This"

First up is a little journal page I created. I love to "experiment" in my journal. This time around I was playing with some of the 7 Dots Studio papers incorporating their earthy colours into a small page spread.

These little guys fit just perfectly! I created the background using Gelatos and then highlighted it with my black Stabilo Aquarellable (my absolute favourite item in my studio).

Stamps I used included: 


So you'll hear me say time and time again that I am not a card maker! I get by but I have nothing on these girls here in this team. I'm hoping to learn so much from them about this truly amazing skill. However I have the attitude that while I have hands I can stamp! So I will continue to practice.

This little card is about my card making journey. I have used gloss white card and created the background by blending chalk inks. The Bell jar is stamped separately and fussy cut out along with the Whimsical Feather in the foreground. I used the bottom half of the Whimsical Horned Boy stamp to add the numbers.

 Stamps I used include:

"King of the Tree"

My last piece I want to share with you is this little wire tree ornament that I made to hang on my Christmas tree. I formed a wire frame and then gave it a book page base to mount my stamped image on to.

I only added a little bit of rust colour to grunge it up and some Um WOW chipboard pieces. I absolutely love creating with wire. I love the unpredictable element it gives to my work. You'll see a lot of this from me.

Stamps I used included:

So that's me! Well that's my art .......As for me, I am 43 and a 3/4 years old, I'm a teacher of 4 year olds at a Kindergarten (yes I am insane) and I have two adult children of my own. A boy, Cameron who is almost 23 and a girl Kaity, who is about to turn 21. I live in Australia with my hubby (right down the bottom on the edge but not quite in Tasmania!) in a little town called Mount Gambier. We are famous for our Blue Lake, which is a dormant volcano (see I told you I live on the edge!) No seriously it's beautiful and very safe. Or so we're told!

I began creating at a young age. My Grandma was an artist. She mainly painted with oils and water colours and my mum was an interior designer and painter. My sister is an actress and my daughter is a 3D artist currently working with some amazing technology in the virtual reality art world, so as you can see the women of the family have all the artistic talent!

I create anything that my heart desires but my true passion is scrapbooking. You can find more of my work HERE. I am truly blown away to be here on this amazing team and I can't wait to get to know you all better.

  1. Whoa! That is fabulous news.....gorgeous grungy pieces, too. I have no doubt you will rock making cards as much as everything else you set your mind to!!! CONGRATULATIONS:) And I've noted down the Aquarellable pen...hoping it's one that will write on anything and not get fussed by that & refuse to work like MOST pens do!!!

  2. Woohoo...congrats Fiona - I looove the Viva stamps!

  3. Congrats! I love them all - your totally gorgeous journal pages, the way cool card and the amazing ornament!

  4. Congrats Fiona - I look forward to seeing more of your arty, original style. Lovely to read about your arty, genetic family too. :D

  5. Congrats! Some lovely pieces and an interesting bio I have never read before! I have visited Mount Gambier on my travels around Australia in 1989!! Katie's trade is on the UK Prioirity shortlist so once she is qualified she is allowed to enter on a work permit If she secures a job first - texture and animation artists are in hot demand!!

  6. Congratulations Fiona, you always tell me that you are not a card maker, but I choose to ignore that because I know that you are. What ever you set your mind to doing happens and this will be no exception look forward to following your journey x


The only artist you should ever compare yourself to is the one you were yesterday.
