Man's Best Friend......

December 13th 2017
Sharing a mixed media journal page for the current challenge at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers Blog "V is for Vegan" - a fun theme all about animals - obviously!!!!!!!!!!

This page was also created as part of my journaling "lessons" with Lisa Vollrath this year - had a lot of fun each month creating journal pages! this one was a "two" colour theme! I've used collage images from my most favourite Etsy Store "Art Tea Life" - I'm a huge dog lover so this sheet was just perfect for me to create with!

Journal page background was created using pages from an old puzzle book, plus sticky mesh, paint, stencil, washi tape, bit of muslin cloth, computer generated wording and of course the collage images!

Dog's are man's (and woman's) best friend!!!!!

Peace is Always Beautiful...

December 11th 2017

Sharing a mixed media journal page today using brand new digis by Vera Lane Studio - "Peaceful Picasso" set!

Background texture was made up with patterned serviette and washi tape plus texture paste through a stencil, water soluble crayons and some ink sprayed muslin cloth.

Digis coloured with Copic makers and fussy cut. Wording is also a part of the digi set available in the Etsy Store.

Steamy Pocket Letter...

December 9th 2017

Sharing a mixed media "Steampunk" Pocket Letter made for a swap and also to join the current "I is for Industrial" challenge at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers Blog!!!!

Collage "steampunk" digis are by Gecko Galz "Industrial Digital Stamps" - just love them and they were perfect for this pocket letter! Always so hard to photograph pocket letters with the shiny pockets!

I made the background with steampunk gears cut on my Cameo and adhered to a black card background. I added lots of metallic sprays and paints and then cut the 9 x ATC's to size for the pockets. Gecko Galz images were printed on kraft coloured paper and fussy cut and added to the backings with bits of muslin cloth and charms. I really love the colours and how it all turned out!

November 26th 2017

I never get bored with "Alice in Wonderland" images!! Here are3 x altered index cards using new "Wonderland" digis by Vera Lane Studio!!! 2 **NEW** Wonderland themed sets have been released this month and we have been having fun at the Facebook Group creating for this theme!

I have been "altering" 6 x 4 lined index cards using bits and pieces from all the sets - perfect with the png files - so easy to merge and create scenes!

I printed the journal pages from the Accessory set directly onto the index cards and then ink sprayed them and edged them with archival ink pads.

I coloured all the images with Copic markers and fussy cut. All the "wording" that I have added are Vera Lane digis too!

Too much fun colouring and creating with these digis!!

She has been coloured with copics and fussy cut and added to the page with some fabric mesh scraps and the computer generated wording!

Witchy Women......

Two "witchy" journal pages using the fabulous "Journal Faces" by Vera Lane Studio with added "witch's hats" from the "October" Set of Vera Lane digis.
