Ever Feel Like You are Going in Circles?

May 25th 2016
Another ICAD creation plus an entry for the current "Splash of Neon or Bright Colour" Challenge at the Lost Coast Designs Blog!

The warm up prompt for ICAD was "irregular circles" so I checked out Cat Hand's Mixed Media Morsels Youtube video "Circles Background" and based my circles on that! I used neon paints I picked up cheaply yesterday on a book page covered index card, added some black circles with an old lid, added some sticky mesh in the corners and under the birds feet, computer generated the wording and foam mounted the quirky bird stamp from Lost Coast Designs. Such a cute bird - click here to see more - they are called "Whimsical Birds by Doris Arndt" - I have another one I can't wait to use as well!

Junior Ghoul.....

May 24th 2016

New release day at Sandra's Etsy Store and I am sharing "Junior Ghoul"!!! He's a cute ghoul! You can also get a "Girly Ghoul" which is a perfect match for this lad!

Background for my journal page is all strips of washi tape from 2 packets of tape I found at Ikea for 50cents each pack - too good a bargain to resist!! The colours are perfect for my ghoul who has been coloured with copics. The cut out bats and "boo" word are Silhouette files and I ink sprayed a piece of muslin to add behind the fussy cut image.

Hope you like him and all the other new releases for this week now in the store!

Take a Word : Pair.....of Fashionistas!!!!!!

May 23rd 2016

Okay I haven't played along at the "Take a Word" Blog for awhile so today was the perfect day to start and do a quick collage index card which is also my first "warm up" card for the upcoming ICAD 2016!! Theme at Take a Word is "Twosome/Pair/Duo"!!

I've made a collage of the insides of envelopes which had lovely "bills" in them LOL - would rather cut up and reuse the bill than the envie but that's how it goes!!!! Added a bit of tissue paper and smooshed some paint around. Wording is computer generated and  the amazing collage gals are from sheets by Art Tea Life - one of my fav Etsy Stores - love mixing and matching the body parts and clothing!! This was so much fun to create!!

A House is not a Home without a Dog!!

May 22nd 2016
A fun "houses" creation for a card swap for a little group I belong to!

Little "Pug" image is available at Sandra Caldwell's Etsy Store - I just printed him on Kraft paper and fussy cut! Collage houses are also available at Etsy and are by Kate Crane - they were perfect for this themed card. Background is Tim Holtz patterned tissue paper and paint. Quote is computer generated and printed on Kraft paper and cut out.

This card is perfect for the current challenge at the Cardz for Guyz Challenge Blog "Man's Best Friend" - I LOVE dogs - I have 3 of them and totally believe this quote to be true!!!!!

JessicaLynnOrginal "Custom Stamp" Blog Hop......

21st May 2016

Today the JessicaLynnOriginal DT are showcasing & promoting the great "Custom" stamps that Jessica can make for you!! And if you CLICK HERE you will be taken to the direct link at the JLO Store to see all the details about ordering a custom stamp of your own! The great thing is that you can use your artwork, or your kids artwork or have Jessica design something for you! Great for weddings, gifts, geocaching  anything!!

I've been on the JLO Design Team for several years now and am so lucky to have had Jessica draw up a couple of "Aussie" designs for me to create with - LOL not surprisingly I am the only Aussie Gal on the DT so she spoils me with images related to Australia which is great! Today I have been playing around with "one staple collage" creations - except I have used 3 or 4 staples because of all my collage stuff on my index cards LOL!!! But still it looks good and I have not used glue! Idea comes from ICAD (Index Card a Day) which is starting up again for 61 days on 1st June and someone posted a great one staple collaged index card - it looked so great that I decided to give it a try with these JLO images after finding an article at the ICAD Blog!!

Images used on my index cards are "The Walking Dead Emu" LOL - just love this image!!!! And also "Kookaburra" - a very unique laughing bird!!!! You will see I have used old book pages, ephemera, fibres, wording etc. I kept the images simple - printed on Kraft paper and fussy cut - no colouring - just gone for a natural look!

I always love to create with any "Australian" Style images so it's great to have someone who can draw up just what you want!!

Nothing "Fishee" Going On.......

May 20th 2016

A new challenge at the SLS Lines Blog with the theme of "Monochrome" - so lets see your shades of grey or shades of any other single colour - as you can see I've done shades of brown/earthy tones.

This is a page I "revamped" which I wasn't overlay happy with when I first did it last year - it was a bit dull but then it turned into the perfect background for this challenge theme with the addition of a few bits & pieces and of course the amazing SLS Lines "Cat" LOL!!!

You have a month to join this challenge so get out your SLS Lines images and get creating in your fav colour! A reminder that Sal has a new website but you can still nab images from the Etsy Store as well!

Biker Bomb!

May 19th 2016

A DT creation for Kaleigh Sue - check out Cheri's new website by clicking here. You can shop for images, get details on all of her colouring books available at Amazon, links to the blogs and remember to play along with the Colouring Queendom Facebook Group!

I've used "Biker Bomb" image for this mixed media journal page. Background was ink sprays and a stencil made on my Cameo Silhouette. Motorbike is a Silhouette file as well. Image coloured with pastel pencils in purples to match the background. Wording was printed out on my Dymo label maker - the one I forgot I had and then found in the cupboard!!!!!

More DT inspiration can be found at the Karleigh Sue Blog!!
