Fly with Art....

April 27th 2017


Two blue & white themed altered index cards for one of the Facebook Challenges at the Gecko Galz Group! All patterned papers and collage elements are available from Gecko Galz.


 
I layered the patterned papers on the cards - a great way to use up scraps and bits of odd shaped and sized papers! Waste not want not LOL!!! The women images were fussy cut and added to the cards with a couple of other collage images and scraps of muslin cloth. "Fly" & "Art" are letter stickers to finish them off!

Paradise with Some Odd Girl!

26th April 2017


I created this altered collaged index card for the current Some Odd Girl "Nothing Square" Blog Challenge!


I used a paper pack and matching elements from Kaisercraft - a perfect match for this gorgeous image "Tropical Piper" by Some Odd Girl! Image printed on watercolour paper and coloured with watercolour pencils. Added a bit of hessian and scrap of cloth. love how it turned out!

Hmm I Choose You.....

April 24th 2017
A mini pocket letter made for a "Love" themed swap for an Aussie swap group I belong to. Papers and images are a mixture of Gecko Galz and a Valentine's collage sheet by Heather Hudson.


It's always fun to make a mini pocket letter - a bit quicker to make 3 ATC inserts than the full sheet of nine!! I used black card for the ATC bases and then cut patterned tags from the sheet by Heather to fit slightly smaller than the base and used my sewing machine to attach them. I added Heart/Love Bingo cards by Gecko Galz and the stunning Woman also by Gecko Galz (from the Tattooed Women Collage Set). A bit of muslin, paper clip, charm and string to finish it all off! I love the colour tones and how it all turned out. Of course the back pockets were filled with a tea bag and extra goodies for the recipient!


3 Words: Little Black Dress

April 23rd 2017


"Miss Dee" would have to be one of my most favourite characters from Vera Lane Studio!!! she can be creepy and dark or as you can see today she is "Elegant" in fact "E is for Elegant" - which is the current challenge at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers Blog!!!!
 

 
Page background was gessoed first and then I used red & black ink sprays to make "dribbles" down the page. I added lace & braid and then secured t all with my sewing machine. Miss Dee was coloured with pastel pencils and fussy cut - notice I added some ruby earrings LOL!!! I stamped the "3 words: little black dress" with black ink and some alphabet stamps I found in my stash! I am really happy with how this page came out and Miss Dee has been waiting for a special occasion to come out and the new "Elegant" challenge was the perfect reason to get dressed up!

Tall Town.......

April 22nd 2017
A new "Tall Town" set of digis was released at the start of the week by Janet at Vera Lane Studio!


I made very long bookmarks!! For the background I used a brayer and acrylic paint on cardstock and cut to size and mounted on tan coloured card. Tall houses were coloured with pastel pencils and fussy cut. Wording digis also by Vera Lane Studio were printed on kraft cloured paper and adhered to the tops of the bookmarks along with some muslin cloth scraps. To finish off I added some string to punched holes at the top of each.


These digis mix and match perfectly with all the other quirky and fun characters available at Vera Lane Studio!!

MHK Designs...more Monthly Challenge Inspiration....

April 20th 2017
Sharing another creation I made as Guest Designer for the current monthly inspiration challenge at the MHK Blog! I've used digis from the "Butterfly Wisdom" Set and a strip of digi patterned paper from the "Worn & Weathered Pink" paper set all available at Mynn's Etsy Store!


As you can see I've worked in my black paged journal, used texture paste/stencil and pink ink spray on the background along with a strip of patterned paper, some little heart & swirl stickers from a 3d pack I have and scrap of muslin cloth. Butterfly digis and the wording from the digi set were printed onto a piece of paper I had also printed from the Worn & Weathered paper set so the background is patterned and soft.

I love how this turned out - nice and soft but still textured and also inspired by the inspiration photo for the month! Hope you can join in!
