A "red & white" themed mixed media journal page created for a challenge at the Gecko Galz Facebook Group & also for the Dream in Darkness challenge this month!


I'm entering this in this month's challenge at the Dream in Darkness Blog - theme of use what you already have!!! Everything on this page is old LOL!! Page background was "mop up" from excess paint/stencils - I added a muslin cloth overlay (always have this on hand in bulk!!!), red ink spray and white watercolour paint was also added to the background - more supplies I have had for ages!! Image is by Gecko Galz and is from the "Dark Arts" collage set which I already owned along with the butterflies, also by Gecko Galz, white flower I have had for years and is the last one from the pack so I've cleaned up that pack!! I love how this page turned out!

Hello Love...

Sharing a fun journal page using "Matilda" from the set by Vera Lane Studio: "Matilda's New Year" - a great quirky character set!!!


I'm entering this in the current "T is for Technique" Challenge at the fab "Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers" Blog!! I've used my favourite technique for creating a journal page background which is to use torn strips of old book pages plus recycle my stash of "saved" tissue paper!! I've alternated strips of pages with strips of patterned tissue paper. I added a thin layer of Gesso to tone down the background, added paint through a stencil and used an old credit card and small lid as mark makers on the background. Once everything was dry I added the journaling cards and fussy cut "Matilda"!! A fun page!

 
Make sure you check out all the new releases at the Vera Lane Etsy Store - so many quirky designs and so many more new images to come this year!!!!!!

Valentine Angel....

January 13th 2018
I'm back designing for Sandra Caldwell for the next two months as guest designer - just love working with Sandra's quirky cute and fun digis!! Today I am sharing #2022 Valentine Angel - a brand new release for this week and available now in store!!!!


Such a little cutie! I've coloured here with Copic markers and fussy cut and added to a page in my black journal - great effect the bright pink with the black! I did some recycling too as the solid light pink square in the background is a paint chip sample, also added paper doiley, clear gold design vellum square scrap, washi tape, "love" lettering, sparkly gems and a heart puffy sticker in the top corner!


Here she is coloured up before I fussy cut her and added her to the page:


Showing the embellies added and painty background. A bit hard to see but she has sparkly wings and I used some glitter paint on the background too.

 
Pop to the Facebook Group for more DT creations using the new release digis for this week - they are all fabulous!!

Blank Page Muse Stamps January Challenge: "Turquoise, Silver & Sparkle"

January 11th 2018


A new format for the new year at the "Blank Pages Muse Rubber Stamps Blog" (formerly Sin City Stamps)!! This year we are having a monthly challenge at the blog so you can create and share your "Blank Page Muse" creations!! Theme is "Turquoise, Silver & Sparkle" and the challenge will run from the 10th January for a month - plenty of time to get your creations linked up!!

My creation uses stamps from the fabulous "Oddly Appealing by Cathy Frailey" - LOVE this set - so different and amazing to create with!!

Here's how I made this altered index card - I started with a Gelli Plate printed 6 x 4 index card (you will be able to see how I did this in my upcoming tutorial at the Blank Page Muse Blog later in the month!!!


I stamped the double faces and "face it" wording onto silver metallic card and fussy cut the faces and cut the wording out and edged with a black sharpie to give it a border.


Next came all the sparkly embellishments LOL!!! Snowflakes and little flower sequins plus sparkly mesh - who doesn't love sparkle and glitter???


I started to layout all the bits and pieces onto the index card so see how it would all fit and when I was happy I glued everything down!


And my finished creation - all nice and sparkly and silver and turquoise!!


Make sure you check out the blog for all the other amazing creations made by the rest of the DT - click the links and you can see how all the creations were put together!!! We can't wait to see your entries for our very first challenge!!!

New Day....

January 8th 2018


An altered index card using some gelli plate prints and other bits and pieces of offcuts plus brand new digis by Vera Lane Studio "New Day" - a 4 digi stamp set - cute little gal and her chicken (which I haven't used on this card).


Digi coloured with Copic Markers and fussy cut and added to the collaged background. There are some really fab new digis being released at the Vera Lane Studio store this month and the coming months so stay tuned!!

80's Telephone by Bloobel Stamps....

January 7th 2018


A "New Release" digi now available at the Bloobel Digital Stamp Store - "80's Telephone" - so cool - remember these phones?????


Remember the song "8675309" ????? inspired the background and page layout plus Abba's "Ring Ring" - really could have added a lot of "phone" song lyrics!


Digi image coloured with Copics and fussy cut - gotta love those lips!!! Background comprises gesso, number stickers ( a great way to use up bits & pieces from sticker packets), sticky mesh, water colour paints, old maths text book pages & washi tape. I added the "ring ring" 3d bubble stickers - look like the numbers on an old telephone plus the little number tiles for the "8675309".


So much fun creating this page - one of my first creations for 2018! Make sure you check out all the fab quirky digis at the Bloobel Website - always something new to colour and create with!

Happy New Year 2018!
