Xmas in July...

July 22nd 2014


At The Sailing Pineapple Blog we couldn't resist having a "Xmas in July" Challenge - so this week's challenge is just that except we have a twist and that is to use something non-traditional on your creation ie. don't use green & red, or use an image which is NOT a xmas themed image like the little hobbit girl I have used, use pastel colours or pink & purple - whatever is non traditionally xmas!!

 
 
I added a cut out (using my Cameo Silhouette) xmas hat to this Hobbit Girl image from The Sailing Pineapple to turn her into an image for my xmas card! I also cut the layered shape with my Silhouette and used great digital papers from Yellow Lemons Etsy Store.
 
I am also entering this card in the My Sheri Crafts Christmas in July Challenge which requires lots of layers! And the Craft Your Passions Challenges Blog also has a Christmas in July Challenge so I am entering there as well!

Bombshell Hula Girl

July 21st 2014


I haven't played with my Bombshell Stamps for far too long so I decided to join 2 of the July challenges at the Bombshell Blog! I've combined Jenn's "Ms July" Sun, Surf & Sand Challenge with the July Sketch Challenge - 2 birds with 1 stone LOL!!!


I've used images from the Bombshell  "Hula Girl" Stamp Set along with cut outs done with my new Silhouette which I am still playing with and learning how to use!!

Exciting New Discoveries....

July 20th 2014


Another journal page! I'm having fun with my journal so I figure keep on creating!


So this page is for the current Little Miss Muffet "Anything Goes" Challenge - I've used "Luna Bitterfrost Steampunk Rocks" Digital Image - love this cute but punky design!


For the background I used Dylusions Ink Sprays - as you can imagine I now have coloured fingers! I had some floral stamps from the cheap shop which I stamped around the edge and resprayed with ink to soften the look - I also used the stamps on the cut out numbers as well as ink sprays. I cut the numbers with my new Silhouette which I am still learning to use! Image coloured with Copic Markers. I added some die cut cogs. Quote stamp is from a Tim Holtz stamp set.

This page was also created with the Week 28 Journal 52 Prompt in mind - "Technology". I've said before I am way behind on the Journal 52 prompts but when I can I create something using one of the many prompts I have to catch up on!


You know when I started making this page I had a whole other colour scheme in mind and another LMM image I planned to use but after I started spraying and adding more colours the whole thing changed and I had to rethink what I was doing - it was fun & creative!

Zen Tangle Card

July 19th 2014
 
 
Today I am sharing another of my Gecko Galz DT creations using a new "Zentangle" image from the set release for July. I love all the stamps in the set - LOL - I could have made cards with all of them but this was one of my favourites! The background digital papers are also new for July and are from the "La Isla Bonita" set - great papers to use for creations!!!!
 

 
I added die cut numbers cut from Kraft paper and added some muslin (my most favourite accessory LOL) along with some steampunk charms and wire swirls. Main Zentangle image was coloured with Copic Markers.
 
Check out the Gecko Galz Website for more inspiration from the DT using all the new products released this month!


The Earth Laughs in Flowers......

July 17th 2014


Sharing a journal page made for the Stampotique Challenge (SDC 155) Newspaper/Magazine theme. I followed Janet's idea for adding text to my page at her blog - Vera Lane Studio - I love Janet's images which I have used on this journal page available at Stampotique. Gorgeous flower f=girl image is "China Belle" and the Emerson quote is also a Janet Klein image.


I bought a Cameo Silhouette a few months ago and can you believe I only got it out of the box about a week ago - LOL - I am time poor - but I am loving it - still working it all out of course but did manage to cut the cherry blossom branch and flowers - I was very excited!!!!


Background is acrylic paint and I used Asian newspaper pieces and Janet's technique to add the text to the page - probably need some more practice with that but my first effort so I'm still happy! Image coloured with Copics and everything adhered with Gel Medium. Love getting painty and sticky fingers in the name of crafting!!!!

This page is also inspired by the Journal 52 Week 13 prompt: "How does your Garden Grow" - this is a Japanese garden in the making!


On the Farm

July 16th 2014
A new challenge for this week at the Wicked Wednesday ATC Challenge Blog - "On the Farm" and a great sponsor - A Day for Daisies - don't they just have the greatest images to work with!

 
 
I've used "Bunny Garden" image - so cute - I couldn't resist the carrots LOL! Digital patterned papers complete with carrot images are from Happy Hearts Studio at Etsy - I bought them especially for this ATC.
