Hello Everyone...

Well, Im not sure why this card posted 4 days ago when I only wrote it out yesterday..I must have missed the schedule side of things and didn't do it properly..sometimes with me the lights are on but no one is lets start again..

I have another card to share using the same birds as I used the other day..from Gecko Galz..

This time a birthday card for a friend of mine..

Ooo..another egg too..found the flowers in my stash and they matched so well...

Some more moss around the egg and die cut leaves...

A side view, glad I only have to hand it to her and not post it as it is a bit bulky..

Gosh, these colours make me so happy..

Thank you so much for stopping by..the weekend is over for me thank goodness as my work load is so busy over the weekend and always looks forward to a new working week as it is a lot quieter..and only 4 days and I get a day off..

Hello everyone...

I have another big card to share using left overs...

This was what I made on Thursday with my paints..cut loads of leaves and still had some left overs...

So I made tree trunks.....Using my painted Kraft card stock[ well, actually it was Manila office folder]

 I cut the strips into uneven strips and glued them on..then using a black marker and white paint pen just flicked lines from one side to the other for the illusion of a birch tree..

The trimmed up my beautiful freebie picture from Gecko Galz this was from last month I think..

And added it to my card..along with sentiment word dies...

More leaves [left overs] and berries in Autumn colours..and a birds egg..with a sprinkling of  moss and red glass leaves..

And there we have my big card...

Thank you so much for stopping by..I have had so much fun making this and the last card with all those beautiful Autumn colours...I think I might go make more..

See you soon..

Hello Everyone...

I joined a new Facebook group the other day called Gecko Galz Papercrafting Challenge Group
and they hae 4 challenges going at get freebies and a fabulous store to shop in online..

Oop's, over edited and made it a bit small, but click the link and if we are all lucky it will work..

I made a project, well, actually 2 using last months freebie image and one with this months freebie, and they are both beautiful images..

I will share this months today..and so sorry about all the pictures but I had a lot to share..

This was the paper I made using Alcohol inks and glossy photo paper..

This is my card, and I used the acrylic painted leaves I made on Thursday..and added a few gold ones with the left overs from the background..

I made an easel...

Added some acorns [plastic]

And photgraphed every angle I could..

This beautiful sentiment is from a Kaisercraft stamp embossed.

Close up of the leaves, gosh I had fun making these..

And one more photo of this gorgeous free image from Gecko Galz..

I wish you could see the shimmer on those background papers with all the gold I added, so pretty in real life..

Well there you go, I will be back in a couple of days to show you my other project..

Thanks so much for stopping by..

Hello Everyone..

No finished projects to share today but I made a good start on backgrounds with alcohol inks and my favourite water paints..not water paints.. Acrylic paints..with hits and misses, but a very relaxing afternoon and ready for my day off tomorrow..

First up...

Had the urge to make a circle of bark with masking tape..

All painted up and all ready to go..

Then tried rusting up cogs and things with just paint as I do not have the real stuff..and my modelling paste has gone all crusty.

My paint colours on the side there...

And it worked!!...[ I think]

Then why not leaves??..all the colours were I die cut spellbinders leaves and painted them up too..

Ooo..dogs paint.

Love these leaves and have a project floating in my head for tomorrow..

Then tried to use up the paint on left over kraft card, as that is the card stock I used for the leaves and cogs...

And that was my Thursday afternoon..

Thank so much for stopping by..cannot wait to get started tomorrow..

Hello everyone..

Gosh, that first week of September has gone fast, hope I didn't miss anything..

I have been so busy at work and not enough play time for me, but have been trying out some stuff and made a journal page as well...making rain drops..

Now this a fun thing to can make them as small or as big as you want..I went BIG. blog of glue, a toothpick and swipe I used glue and Nuvo crystal glitter drops..

My man is the one I found on the net and just cut away his background and glued him on my page...

I left one side of him with the white edge for highlight and the other side I used a Faber Castel big brush marker for shading as I had sealed the page already..that way they work really well..

My usual go to sentiment when there is rain around...

And here is the whole page..a lot of fun.

Thank you so much for stopping by and I will see you real soon.

Hello Everyone..

Another month has gone by in a flash and we are back at 613 Avenue Create with a new monthly challenge of anything goes but with an optional twist which is " An Explosion Box "..

A first for me and quite fun to do..

The box was easy...holding it together when most of my fingers are thumbs wasn't..but I got it all tucked up in the end and the lid on..the ribbon is just decoration..

The top of the lid all prettied up with flowers and leaves...

Lid off and... ta da !!...Surprise!..

Inside all decorated with papers from my stash, more flowers and leaves and there could have been choccies inside... but I bet I ate them...

So there we go..come on over, try an exploding box and link up with us..or do an anything goes, you choose..
Thank you so much for stopping by..

See you soon..
