Sprinkle & Sparkle....

August 16th 2017
 

Sharing a new journal page using a fab new set of digis by Janet at Vera Lane Studio "Sprinkle and Sparkle"!!


These 2 little gals are so cute! I printed them on watercolour card and used watercolour pencils to colour in - and of course I added some glitter glue to their crowns and wings!


Page background is brayered paint and impasto medium through a square stencil. I added some Brea glitter ink as well as some pastel crayons to edge the squares to amek them stand out a bit. O just love the nice bright pink colours!!

The Smallest Things...

August 12th 2017


Sharing a baby boy card made with a fantastic little set of digis by Vera Lane Studio "Swaddle them" - such a cute set and perfect for either a baby boy or baby girl or one of each LOL!


The little baby is perfect for paper piecing as shown here and I just had to colour the face with copics. I used a pre printed and pre cut window card with a cute little teddy pattern. I printed the wording to fit behind the window - set comes with 2 phrases to use! I added some muslin cloth behind the baby and finished with a piece of blue lace tied at the spine. I also added an insert in matching teddy paper to the inside to write on. A nice quick and easy card when you need one in a hurry!

 
I am entering this card in the current "Cardz for Guyz" challenge which is to make a baby boy card - a perfect challenge for this!!

Relax & Sparkle...

August 6th 2017


Our theme for this month at the Vera Lane Studio Facebook Group is "Sparkle" so we have all been creating projects with glitter and sparkle! I've used one of the "Ladies Who Lunch" digis to create this page which I spritzed with shimmery ink sprays, added some gems and some glitter glue to the main image for lots of sparkle!


Printed wording is also by Vera Lane Studio. the stitching on the page is the back of the previous page but adds to the texture - I always love sewing on my pages!

I've created a page in one of my larger size journals - and just couldn't resist adding the "PMS" saying LOL - a bit of creepy scary humour!!!!!

Loved creating the background for this image - I added to a page I had been using as a "mop up" page - added lots of textured elements including paste, fabric, mesh etc. Ink sprays and water soluble crayons added more colour and dimension. Wording is computer generated. Digi was coloured with Copics and fussy cut. I just love how this turned out!

Just Dance....

July 25th 2017


A gorgeous new stamp release at Vera Lane Studio "Just Dance" - more cute & quirky digis to create with!

I've created a large journal page with the cute little dancing gal in her tutu! I coloured her with pastel pencils and fussy cut. Page background was a "mop up" page from my brayer when I was doing some gelli printing. Old book page was also gelli printed - I love the pattern of this stencil.


I gathered a strip of black tulle I had with some of my fabrics and added to the page with some sparkly gems. Finished off with the "tutu cute" cardboard letters!

Be Amazed Bird....

July 21st 2017
A cute ATC made for a Vera Lane Studio "mixed up" swap at the FB Group! Digi images available at the Vera Lane Studio Etsy Store - I added the hat to the bird digi - so cute! ATC background was cut to size from a paint chip sample card - always looks effective! Added some coloured texture paste through a small patterned stencil. Ink sprayed cloth scrap and hessian piece plus the "be amazed" wording added to finish off! Digi stamp was coloured with pastel pencils and fussy cut.

Steamy Tags...

July 20th 2017


Fun steampunk collaged tags made sometime ago for a swap group. Collage elements are from my fav Etsy Store "Art Tea Life" - check it out - lots of quirky sheets to create with!


Love the white cut out gears (received from a fellow crafter), added ribbon and lace to the tops of the tags, ink sprayed scraps of cloth and added large brass charms to the tags behind the collage pictures. Love to create a steampunk theme!
