Fall in love ..

Hello everyone,

I have made another art journal... being back from holiday has its advantages.. no more rushing around to get my DT work done ! I actually have time to play again ! Yay ! I had been wanting to use these images by Vera Lane Studio for ages. I coloured them whilst on holiday in July.

I started by brayering these two pages in my mini Moleskine journal with two shades of pink and two shades of green, waiting for it to dry between colours. I didn't like it.. lol
So I painted it over with white and then wiped it with a baby wipe in an attempt to tone it down. Still didn't like it... 
I then used a stencil by Tim Holtz and more white paint.... I liked it. Yay, result !
Next I struggled to think what else to add on the page, besides this lovely girl and her hearts... In a dark drawer I found a gift bag with flowers on it so I cut one of the flower stems out and adhered it to the bottom of the page. Nice ! I added some shading and then added the girl and the hearts. 
Lastly I added a Tim Holtz chit chat sticker. 

I really like the end result. 
I used a digital image by Vera Lane Studio and you'll find it HERE.

Lil' tricksters

Hello everyone,

and welcome to my weekly blogpost for Vera Lane Studio.
Today I have 4 ATC's to share... I cut up a piece of 6 x 6 pattern paper and got these for ATC's out of out:

Aren't they cute ! 

So, when I cut out the ATC's I coloured the little flowers on the paper quickly with Copic Markers. 
The image wer all coloured with Copics too apart from the little mummy; that was coloured with watercolours and coloured pencils. 
I found a really old set of rub ons from Tim Holtz and used some of them on the ATC's as well. 

You will find the Lil' tricksters HERE

Hello everyone,

and welcome to this post for Country View Challenges. It is still Miriam's challenge and the subject is 'metal'. I made a mini journal :

I started with a piece of watercolour paper and Distress Oxides... 

I smooshed the inks on my craft sheet, spritzed with water and then dragged the paper through it several times, drying it in between.... 

I then added some background stamping..

Next I stamped the buildings at the bottom, then man; I stamped him on book paper also.. and the sentiment which I embossed with cream embossing powder. 

I adhered the man over the one on the paper and added the sentiment which was stamped on the white edge of the book page. 

And here is where the metal comes in... I took some wire and twisted it into a circle. I attached it to my paper with staples. 

Here is a close up of how that looks... I also added some white splatters and mounted the whole thing on a page out of the same book before gluing it into my journal... 

We hope you will play along with us this month; you could win £20 to spend in the shop ! Just make sure to read the rules. You'll find them HERE

Hello everyone,

and happy Sunday ! I have another instalment for Vera Lane Studio today ! I do so love the images... I made a tag with one of the 'lil gangstas'.

Isn't he just so cool !!!! I cut a tag from card stock and used a stencil and Distress Oxide Inks to add colour. I then rolled some white paint over it to tone it down and also to make it cooler !! lol. 
I added some pieces of an old map that we used to use for walking in Wales which is really cool too ! 
He was glued in place after I printed him and coloured him with Copic markers. 
The sentiment is from the same set but says Stay Cool... I just used one word and put it into a speech bubble... 

You will find all the amazing image from Vera Lane Studio
