Be Inventive & Creative...

November 27th 2016

Made a couple of Moo's for 2 challenges today. Collage Steampunk girls are from the "Industrial Age" digi Stamp Set by Gecko Galz. Base Moo cards are paint chip samples and I cut them so they look like stripes for the current Moo-Mania Blog challenge of Stripes! I also added some scraps of muslin, a brad to one and metal spiral to another and a scrap piece of washi tape. Love that these Moo's are small enough to use those little bits & pieces you get as left overs and can't bear to throw away!!

I have also made these 2 Moo's using items from the current Desert Islands Crafts Challenge Blog itinerary - the items I used from the list are: Steampunk, Monochrome, Add Metal & Anything But a Card!!!

Feeling Rubbery.....

November 26th 2016
My post today is revisiting some "rubber stamped" creations I've made!! I had fun picking out some of my "favs" for this post - realised I love to create with lots of different style of images and using lots of different mediums to complete the creations!

Mixed media cards using Prima Bloom girls - great large stamps to create with and I loved colouring them with different mediums!

Lost Coast Designs have some great stamps to create with this is a little mini mixed media journal page which I think started as a bit of a "mop up" page for excess paints and ink on a background stamp and was worked on from there.
Below is one of my favourites from ICAD this year - just love the bird stamp and had so much playing with paint and making the circles.
Love the texture of this next page and the addition of the lace and braid scraps I attached with my sewing machine and great medieval style stamp.

Below are some creations using Stampotique Stamps - such quirky stamps available!!
Firstly a mixed media double page journal spread - this was so much fun to create with paint, stamps and embossing powder for a December/Xmas theme!!

And below are two sets of stamped ATC's made for swaps - LOL the first set were nix and match - using several stamps and cutting them up and making a new character and of course the 2 under that are Halloween themed!!!

And a few rubber stamps from JessicaLynnOriginal. Altered index cards below combine the rubber stamped coffee cup with collage images and mixed media background!

Love to create tag art and this Boston Terrier rubber stamp worked perfectly with the background for this and matching elements! I coloured this image with pastel pencils - always love the effect from these pencils.

A couple of dog themed "Moo's" - using toy dog stamps - stamped dogs directly to the Moo and coloured with pencils.

Altered playing cards with textured and ink backgrounds and stamps coloured with copics - I loved how these turned out - the colours are vibrant and I love the backgrounds.

Rubber stamps are so versatile and it was great to look back over my past creations with them and add this post to my blog!

Quick - Xmas is Coming....

November 26th 2016

A fun journal page created with a great digi image by Sheepski Designs @ Etsy. I made this opage for Andrea's (Sheepski) challenge at the Markers! Paper! Digis! Facebook Group - a Xmas Critters challenge using a Skeepski image.

As usual I couldn't just do a "normal" creation LOL - I had to use something "non-traditional" and make it xmassy!! So "Mel's Crow" by Sheepski was turned into a xmas bird - clipart xmas hat is from SLS Lines. Background uses Silhouette file die cuts, texture paste and stencil and ink sprays. Digi crow was printed in varying sizes and coloured with copics, fussy cut and the little xmas caps added.


Off on a Quest of Discovery...

November 26th 2016
A fun altered index card made for one of this month's challenges at the Gecko Galz Facebook Group - theme of the Letter "Q" - so as you can see the subject of this is "Quest"!

All collage images are by Gecko Galz and you can grab them at their Etsy Store - so many amazing collage sheets, digi stamp sets and digital paper packs!! I've used the little mouse from the Animal Crackers Collage set along with maps from the Old World Maps set and the "quest" letters are from Great Adventure Alphabet sheet - all perfect for this collaged creation!

A Little Ray of Sunshine.....

November 21st 2016

New release in Sandra Caldwell's Etsy Store this week - #1202 Faith Fairy Troll - LOL a cutie! I've coloured her with Copics and coloured pencils.

I'm in a Postcard "Song Title" swap this month so this is one of my creations for the swap - song of course is "A little ray of sunshine"!! I used a 6 x 4 index card as the base and added texture past through a Tim Holtz stencil perfect for looking like the sun's rays, added some ink sprays and black water colour crayon then a bit of muslin cloth, the fussy cut image and computer generated wording!

Make sure you check out the store for all the amazing new release designs this week - always such fun & quirky digis to create with!

Read and Discover New Worlds...

November 20th 2016

Just love this gorgeous new image by Sandra Caldwell - available in her Etsy Store - #1163 Book Head! I've created a journal page with her. Background is old book pages and old maps from Gecko Galz. Wording is computer generated. I tried to make her jumper look woolly LOL!!

Kitties Pumpkin Pie........

November 9th 2016

A fun new image in Sandra's Etsy Store this week - #1160 Kitties Pumpkin Pie - such a fun and cute image! I've altered an index card - used my Gelli Plate to create the painted background and then added the image which I coloured with copics and fussy cut. I added some sticky mesh and muslin cloth and added the paw stamps and the "here kitty kitty" wording with alphabet stamps.

I'm entering this in the current Show us your Pussies Challenge at their Blog which is a Cats ONLY Challenge Blog and this is just purrfect for this challenge LOL!

Vintage Gal ATC's...

November 8th 2016

A couple of collage style ATC's made for the current Desert Islands Crafts Challenge Blog. I've used a few of the items off the "itinerary" for this challenge - you need to use at least 3 of the items on the list to enter! I have used the following: make it vintage, die cut, lace, charm and doiley!

Brewing Egg Nog!!!

November 6th 2016

A fun "non-traditional" Xmas challenge at the Delicious Doodles this month! LOL I've used the "3 Wicked Witches" image from Teri's Etsy Store and altered an index card. Naturally I couldn't do anything normal so had some fun with this image which I printed into kraft coloured paper and added xmas clip art caps by SLS Lines. Backing card is an altered index card which has been ink sprayed, texture pasted, washi tape and inked muslin cloth plus the computer generated wording - a bit of fun for the challenge. We look forward to seeing your entries!

I'm entering this in the November challenge at the Dream in Darkness Blog - these gruesome witches are just perfect!
