Fancy Flamingo.....

March 28th 2016

Monday again and that means new release time at Sandra's Etsy Store - always so many new digis each Monday!!! Today I am sharing #373 Fancy Flamingo - which was actually a suggestion I made when Sandra was asking for digi requests!

I've altered an index card and used a patterned serviette on the background and also the "other" flamingo is part of the serviette. Image coloured with pastel pencils.

For more inspiration with the new digis check out the FB Group for Sandra's Fans and also the store! We always have a challenge running at the FB Group and fun games and events where you can win free images too so worth popping in!

She Was Queen of Her Own Life.....

March 27th 2016
A page in my large A4 journal using a quirky gal from Vera Lane Studio!

The quirky gal and the "queen of her own life" wording are part of the set by Janet at Vera Lane Studio. I computer generated the other wording down the side. background is mixed media including old book pages, sticky mesh, texture paste, water colour paint. Image coloured with pastel pencils.

It's always fun to play around with mixed media and basically make a mess - I always end up with coloured fingers from paint and ink sprays.

Spring Coffee Lover's Blog Hop.......

March 19th 2016

What a great opportunity for this altered coffee sleeve to be added to the Spring Coffee Lover's Blog Hop happening right now!! LOL there are a lot of people who love coffee themed images and creations!!!!

I "altered" this sleeve which a fellow "Aussie" kindly sent me for a little swap group that we are both in - we altered sleeves, decorated and personalised them and off they went - in my case off overseas!!

Gorgeous "Java" Gal image is available at Sandra Caldwell's Etsy Store - she has lots of coffee themed images - this one I couldn't resist and she was perfect for this creation! Above pics show the front and back and below I put it on a glass to see what it looked like!!

Load on the Flowers....

March 18th 2016
My last challenge as a DT Member for Nikki Burnette and the theme for this challenge is Load on the Flowers!

I just love this Zombie Gal - you can find her "Beatrix" here in the store.

I didn't really ad much to this page - I just love the image - it has a lot going on and all the roses were suited to the challenge. Coloured with colour pencils and fussy cut, a it of paint added to the black page and some muslin cloth then the image stuck on top!! Pop over to the challenge blog to add your entry and have the chance to win some images from Nikki!

St Patrick's Day!

March 17th 2016

A very green creation to celebrate St Pat's Day - you can find more inspiration at the SLS Lines Blog!!

This is an altered index card I made for an Aussie Swap Group I am in where we had to use our napkins which we received in an earlier trade! I used a napkin for the background then added texture paste, ink sprays, sticky mesh, silhouette file clover cut outs and lucky word and of course the SLS Lines digi coloured with colour pencils! I love the overall look of this - lots of texture and depth!!

Foxy Lady...

March 16th 2016

Instead of new releases this month at Karleigh Sue we are doing an "Oldies Release" and reshowing some of the older images available in store that you may have missed!!!

I couldn't resist choosing this "Foxy Lady" to create with for this month - she was great to colour with my pastel pencils and easy to fussy cut!

Journal page background was done with a "mop up" page I had used to get rid of some excess paint from another creation and the colours were a good match for the scene I wanted to create - I just added some ink sprayed tissue paper remnants and a bit of excess paint I had on a sponge applicator. Trees are Silhouette files. I added a few other bits and pieces for texture and the letters "Nurture" to finish off.

Roaring Flapper.....

March 14th 2016

A fantastic new release image by Sandra Caldwell available today in her Etsy Store along with more new images - Monday - my favourite day!!!! she is called "339 Roaring Flapper" - an image I just HAD to have to create with for the new releases this week!

I covered the entire journal page with a gorgeous piece of embossed silver paper - I thought the pattern had a "deco" look perfect for this gal. She has been coloured with pastel pencils and fussy cut. I added some beaded fringing to the top of the page, silver ribbon at the bottom of the page and some blue feathers to finish off. I don't usually colour a lot in blue but she looks great in the blue tones so good to go out of the colour comfort zone!!!

Make sure you visit the store and our FB group for more inspiration with the new images from the rest of the DT and Sandra always "throws in" new images that even we haven't seen each week - toooo much temptation!!!

Primary Colour Tags.....

March 13th 2016
Still catching up on creations from 2015!!!!!!! Here are 2 tags made for a art swap group I am in - theme of Primary Colour Tags!

I just love how these turned out. Backgrounds are ink sprayed tissue paper which was glued to the tag and trimmed. I added a bubble wrap look stamp to the base tag as well. And then a strip of washi tape for the collaged gals to stand on and some bakers twine to the tops. The gals are all bits and pieces from a collage sheet from one of my favourite Etsy Stores "Art Tea Life".

Bearly Lucky.......

March 13th 2016

A quick extra post so I can enter my green & gold ATC in the current challenge at the Wicked Wednesday ATC Challenge Blog!

I've used #155 Bearly Lucky digi from Sandra Caldwell's Etsy Store - of course - how could I resist colouring up this cutie for the colour challenge!! St Pat's day is coming up so pop over to Sandra's Store and nab an image to create with!!!!


March 12th 2016

A new stamp set release party this weekend at JessicaLynnOrginal - a great cat set of stamps - Jessica is known for her dog sets but she now has a cat set!!! All the DT have been creating so there is lots of inspiration for you.

Above are a set of 4 mini gift tags using 4 stamps from the set - very quick and easy to make using ink sprays, black card and of course the cat stamps. Punch a hole at the top and add some string. I did line these little cards with paper so it was easy to write inside.
Below are 2 ATC's I made - stamps coloured with pastel pencils and fussy cut and cat "themed" backgrounds and embellishments LOL!

If you head over to the JLO Blog you will be able to use the linky to pop over and visit all the DT plus add your own creations!!!
