Summer Fun.....

August 31st 2016

New release yet again for Sandra at her Etsy Store!!! Today I am sharing #733 Summer Fun - love the look on her face!! I've coloured her with pastel pencils - she looks like she has been in the sun too long!!!

I added her to a mixed media background in one of my journals - I used a patterned napkin for the background along with a gritty sand like texture paste and some starfish embellishments as well as the "swim" sticker letters.

August 23rd 2016

New release time for this week at Sandra Caldwell's Etsy Store! This image is #730 Stray Cat in the Moon! LOL I was frantically fussy cutting after I coloured the image and I cut away the moon!!! So in the pic above I put it back so you can see what it should look like!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus.....

August 21st 2016

A new challenge at the SLS Lines Blog "Man vs Woman" - great theme and we can't wait to see how everyone interprets this!!! I've used a fantastic & fun image "Monsters in Love" LOL for my mixed media journal page! You can find so many quirky images perfect for this challenge at the SLS Lines Website!!

My page background is a combination of old book pages, patterned serviette, gesso & acrylic paint, stencil with texture paste plus computerised wording and the image coloured with copics, fussy cut and adhered to front!

Carlos in the Doghouse!!!!!

August 21st 2016
My entry for the new challenge at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers - "H is for Hounds" !!!

Digi stamp "Carlos" is by Vera Lane Studio available at Etsy. I love dogs of any kind even this zombie style pup!! This mixed media ATC is also for a swap at the Vera lane Studio FB Group - theme of "add a Label" - the "doghouse" card behind Carlos was a tag from an item of men's clothing and was a perfect match for this creation!!

Brentwood Owl - Home of the Brave - NEW Stamp Set by JessicaLynnMould

August 13th 2016
A new stamp set released at JessicaLynnOriginal today - check out the website and if you are on Facebook check out the group and what the rest of the DT have made!

My first creation is a layered/collaged altered index card using 2 of the stamps from the set. The "patterned papers" are gelli prints I had fun printing with this week - have had my Gelli Plate for nearly 12 months and had never used it!!! I printed Brentwood Owl and the sentiment on gelli print paper too.

My next creation also involves Gelli Plate printing - this time I printed direct onto an envelope - back and front. I printed Brentwood owl on white paper and coloured with colour pencils and fussy cut and adhered to the front of the envelope. Round stamp in the top corner is from the set as well. Bird on wire stamp and flower along the bottom are also stamps by Jessica but from different sets.

The snail mail stamp is also part of the set - cute!
