A Little Whimsy!!!

November 11th 2012

A reminder post for our "Snails OR Stripes" Challenge at the Wicked Wednesday ATC Blog and for my reminder ATC I have used a "whimsical" mannequin from a Gecko Galz collage sheet with strips of torn paper to make a striped background.

I decided I loved the image, colours and strips of paper so much that I would add some more and turn the ATC into a card for any occasion!!!!

Hope Faith Courage & Strength

November 10th 2012

My entry for the current challenge at the Rick St Dennis Challenge Blog which has a theme of "Remember" and Rick had some great freebie images for use with this theme!! I've used the "We Care" Image and turned her into a "Pink Ribbon / Breast Cancer" ATC accordian booklet!! I've used great new patterned papers fropm the new release "Vanity Fair" Paper Pack from Gecko Galz - perfect "pink" papers for this creation!! I chose the Pink Ribbon theme as a couple of women I know have had to undergo Breast Cancer treatment this year so it's my way of "remembering" them & what they have had to go through.

I'm also linking up to Pink Saturday this week with my little accordian ATC booklet!

Xmas Angel Hangers

November 8th 2012

My new creations using some collage images from the new November release "Vintage Angels" sheets at Gecko Galz this month!! These little ornaments would be great for the xmas tree!! Make sure you check out all the new products at Gecko Galz for this month and you will find more great inspiration in the Design Team Gallery at the site!!

I printed the angel heads onto thick textured cardstock - added some mesh fabric, feathers, charms, stars, a paper rose and made a little loop at the back so they can be hung up!!

I chose to add pink & gold embellishments to the cream "dresses" on each angel so I could enter them in the new Sugar Creek Hollow Challenge "Cream Plus Two"!!

A fun new challenge at our Wicked Wednesday ATC Blog this week - "Snails or Stripes"!!!

Altered Xmas Gift Box

November 6th 2012

A new challenge at Jackson's Digital Expressions this week - we want you to "alter" a box!!! I've altered a little box that a halogen light bulb came in - a cute little box for a "little" xmas gift!!

I painted the box with gesso then red paint and stippled yellow and glittery paint over it then when it was dry I tied green & red ribbon around it and added some holly and a great Xmas image from Robert Jackson "Mr & Mrs Claus"!!!

We can't wait to see your altered boxes with a holiday theme!!

Recycled Dream!!

November 4th 2012

A new challenge at the Just Some Lines Challenge Blog - "Reduce, Reuse, Recycle" - I love this theme!! And at the challenge blog you are now required to use a Just Some Lines Image which I think is a great idea!!

I've used the "Gab 1" image and coloured her with earthy toned Copic Markers for this card which I tried to give an "olde/vintage" feel. The recycled/reused items on my card are the actual card which was an awful coloured metallic square card - I covered the card with some printed tissue paper which was wrapped around a new pair of shoes my daughter bought - LOL I knew as soon as I saw it in the recycle pile that I just couldn't throw it away!!!! The square that Gab is mounted on is a coaster which I covered with some textured paper and some tea stained muslin. I hate to admit how many years old the paper flowers are!!!! I've added braid, a Tim Holtz Ticket and some brads and all the paper and image has been sponged with "Old Paper" Distress Ink. I had a great time making this card tonight!!

Little Witch

November 3rd 2012

A reminder post for our "Head Coverings" Challenge at Wicked Wednesday!! For this ATC I have used a cute little Dilly Beans image coloured with Copic Markers and I've added some little paper flowers, ribbon & a brad!!
