Hello everyone..

Summer vacation is over and time to start a new challenge over at Addicted to Stamps

Our theme to kick off  a new season  is...For a Lady/or Girl

I have this pretty image in my stash for a long time and printed her off to colour..she is Fabrika Autumn Fairy

I used my markers to colour...even the background...

Added die cut leaves and beautiful red glass leaves from my candy win from Lisa Lynn
I dotted some smaller berries around her and the little birds and I love that tiny Squirrel nestled on her hand, so cute..

So there we go, come on over to ADDICTED TO STAMPS  and link up your feminine projects with us..

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

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..

Hello Everyone...

Have something to share today...

New dies,water coloured pond,bull rushes,rocks,and stamping..

And I made this...

Another journal page.." Go where you feel the most alive "..

With wonderful rocks using the new Nuvo Stone Drops..

They dry really fast and look so real..

I die cut out heaps of bull rushes and hand coloured them all...and there is my little frog sitting on a rock..

The whole page got the glitter spray..

As you can see, I got carried away..

There is my other frog..bottom right.. and the beautiful swan coloured while inside the die and her little signets swimming close by..

And again my finished page..

I could have played with this page forever, I had so much fun making it..

Thanks so much for stopping by and I'll see you soon..
