Going Around in Circles....

February 28th 2017

Sharing another Vera Lane Studio DT creation and this journal page was also based on a prompt for an Aussie Swap Group I belong to!! Main VLS image is from the Dark Corner range of images "Hayes" - isn't he fab???

The photo above I took with the sunning shining through the venetian binds - I love the dark look it has - perfect for the image! I'm entering this in the Dream in Darkness Challenge as well - a bit spooky!!!!

Journal page theme is "circles" - I worked in my black page journal and added texture paste through a stencil and then ink sprayed the page. Hayes was coloured with pastel pencils and fussy cut and added to the page with a piece of red sprayed muslin cloth - to add a bit of gruesomeness LOL!! I added circles of red cotton, computer generated wording and used a red posca pen to outline some of the circles! Love it!!!

Remember we have a Facebook Group for Vera Lane Studio Fans - we have a monthly ATc swap so if you are into trading come and join us!

Goldilocks is baaaack!

February 25th 2017

A few weeks ago I shared a journal page with The Three Bears from Vera Lane Studio - well this week the "Goldilocks" Set was released - featuring Goldilocks of course plus some little "accent" digis to use with her and of course they are all a perfect match for the 3 Bears set!!!

On the opposite journal page is The 3 Bears that I made so it is a perfect 2 page spread for the Fairy Tale!! Goldilocks is coloured with pastel pencils and fussy cut. House and trees printed on kraft colour paper and fussy cut. Wording is computer generated. Background is ink sprays plus texture paste and stencil with some washi tape added too.

A "nature" themed journal page created from a prompt at a great little Aussie Swap Group I belong to! Collage elements are from one of my fav collage stores at Etsy "Art Tea Life" - fantastic collage sheets to print and create with - well worth a peek if you are into collage! Background is excess ink on the flip side of a stencil - so fairly basic but the focal point is the face and butterfly plus other elements of collage! Added fibre and ribbon as well.

Sharing a mixed media collage page today for my Vera Lane Studio DT creation! Image is from the "Mothers Love" Set and he has been coloured with copics and fussy cut and added to the background page. Background was made using an old atlas page with the lighthouse scene from a napkin - worked out a perfect match! I added some gesso, sticky mesh and muslin scrap plus the computer generated wording to finish it all off!

Spread Your Wings...

February 19th 2017

I created these tags for the current challenge at the MHK Designs Blog using images from the "Butterfly Wisdom" digi stamp set and inspiration from the February Challenge Inspirational photos.

Tag backgrounds are excess paint rollered direct to the tags then embellished with feathers, bits of raffia, quotes and butterflies printed on MHK Designs patterned digi paper and fibres at the top. Tags edged with a turquoise Smooch.

Spread the Word.....

A fun ATC made for the current trade at the Vera Lane Studio Facebook Group! I've used several images to compile" this gal for my ATC - that is the best thing about Vera Lane Studio digis - they are png files and you can mix & match!!

Gal is from the "Whimsical Garden Girl" Set, Hat is from the "Boutique Hats" Set, "Love" wording on the hat was a special freebie from Janet at Vera Lane and the hearts on the background are from the "Lil Love" Set. I printed the hearts direct to an ATC offcut of a lined index card and ink sprayed. Added some washi, fibre and computer generated wording. Digi image coloured with pencils and fussy cut. I edged the ATC with gold Smoosh!

I am entering this in the current "Hearts" ATC challenge at the Wicked Wednesday ATC Challenge Blog!

Just Clownin' Around.....

My second DT post for Sin City Stamps - this is a sneak peek blog post - you can see the whole process over at the Sin City Stamps Blog!!! I've used stamps from the "Steampunk Circus" Rubber Stamp Sheet - sooooo many amazing stamps to work with which is why I made sooooo many creations for this post - tags, altered index card and mail art!!

Waiting for Goldilocks......

February 11th 2017

My DT creation for Vera Lane Studio this week features the NEW "The Three Bears" Digi Stamp Set - fabulous fairy tale characters!!! As always Vera Lane Studio provides png files so you can overlay the digis as I've done!

Digis coloured with pastel pencils and fussy cut and added to my journal page. This page was a "mop up" page of excess sprays, paint and even a coloured paper doiley! I added some texture paste through a stencil at the top of the page and ink sprayed, plus added the washi tape to the bottom. I edged the image with a charcoal pencil and smudged. Wording "Waiting for Goldilocks" was computer generated!


February 10th 2017

Sharing a card made for the Sheepski Designs Monthly Challenge at their Facebook Group! This digi stamp is named "Victoria" - I couldn't resist as she has that "Steampunk" theme!! Digi coloured with copics. Card background is texture paste, stencil and ink sprays with added charms, muslin & "timeless" word.

Don't Go Breaking My Heart...

February 6th 2017

A cute page in one of my journals for the current challenge at the Some Odd Girl Blog!!! I used the "twist" too which was a heart/valentine/pink inspiration. I used the digi "All Wet Cat" available in store - such a cute image.

Page background was left over paints, plus some texture medium mixed with acrylic paint through a stencil. Cat digi coloured with pastel pencils and fussy cut and added to page with some muslin/cheesecloth. I added a white wavy border to one side of the page plus some pink heart themed 3D stickers to the kitty and page corner. Wording is computer generated.

I had a lot of fun with this page and love how it all turned out!

Love is in the Air...

February 5th 2017

Sharing a Vera Lane Studio DT creation today! And as February is the month of "romance" LOL most of my makes for this DT will be love themed this month for fun!

Stamps sets used for this altered index card are:
Whimsical Girl and Dog in Heart Garden
Lil Love Whimsical Girl with Hearts
Oh La La Set (single hearts)

To make this altered index card I started by printing the pile of hearts digi from the Lil Love set directly to the card and then ink sprayed with pink and red. I added some washi tape to the card at the bottom and also a small bit in the top corner - washi tape is recycled from a package I received - waste not want not! Whimsical girl and hearts were coloured with pastel pencils and fussy cut and added to the background. I computer generated the "love is in the air" wording - cut out and edged with a sharpie. To finish off I used gold Smooch to edge the card.
