Just Clowing Around....

August 18th 2014

Having more fun with my journal - this page uses great new collage images from Gecko Galz - "Clowning Around" Sheets. I used my Silhouette to cut the "Big Top" from paper & card. Some fabulous new collage sets at Gecko Galz this month.

Background is Dylusions Sprays & paint & a bit of stencilling - just love this page - the colours & the fantastic clowns!!
This is also a page based on the Journal 52 Week 27 - "Nostalgia" prompt - good old fashioned circus!

Gecko Galz & itKuPiLLi

August 14th 2014
This months cross promotion at Gecko Galz is with a great "partner" itKuPiLLi and here's my creation:

I've used background paper from this months new release Gecko Galz Map collage sheets and gorgeous woman image and flowers from itKuPiLLi. If you visit the website you can see what the rest of the DT have done with their cross promotion products!
This page is also my Journal 52 Week 22 "Travelling" page interpretation/creation! I'm still not caught up but I'm still creating and attempting to complete more pages based on the prompts!

Love My Fur Babies......most of the time!!!!

August 7th 2014

Okay a fun journal page for the current Little Miss Muffet Challenge - of course this is "my" interpretation of the challenge theme - you know I can't help but do something "different" - you'll never guess what the theme is????? "Baby, Baby" - welcoming a new baby - well I am "welcoming" fur babies! Note: this is MY interpretation of the theme -it's not "traditional" but it's my humour and twist to the theme!

I've used a cat image from Little Miss Muffet which comes from the "Van Family Pets" Set of images - I liked these stick like critters! Little village scene design in the background is from a Vera Lane Studio set of images and the woman is a collage image from Ceremony - a real mix of artists for this page!

Acrylic paints were used on the background and I added some book page strips before painting also for some extra texture and to allow some of the print to show through. I added some letter tiles "Love My Fur Babies". Woman image printed on paper and fussy cut. Cats & village printed on tissue paper and adhered to page.

A fun page which may or may not fit the challenge theme - LOL!!!


August 6th 2014

Take Flight - Live Free

August 3rd 2014

A new month which means new prompts at the Unruly Paperarts Site - Reader's Art Quest Inspiration! You can choose to use either the Creative Prompt or the Photo Inspiration or combine the 2 things! We would love to see some more entries this month - you have the opportunity to win a gift voucher just by entering and sharing your interpretation of this months theme!

I've taken the "Take Flight" prompt and made this bird inspired journal page with images from Vera Lane Studio. You can probably tell I am a big fan of these images - love their quirkiness!

Background of my journal page is Dylusions Spray Inks and stencilling, images coloured with Copic Markers, framework and birds on a wire cut with my Cameo. I love this page - nice and bright and colourful!

"Sew" Many Layers...

Have you been visiting the Unruly Paperarts site - we have had a great theme of "Layers" and there have been some great articles from the columnists? Pop over and check out my column and the other layers inspiration & then get ready for a great month of "Steampunk" Creations for August!!!

I love to have lots of layers - all my cards have had the layers sewn with my machine. All images are from Vera Lane Studio - you really must check out Janet's Store and grab yourself a set or 2 or 3!!!
