Hello Everyone...

I had such a good day went smoothly, even with an extra 1 1/2 hr  client tossed in, the wheels kept turning and everyone was happy..
The weather helped as well as it was a beautiful spring day and quite warm, didn't even take a cardigan...

The other great thing about today is.. it is time for a new challenge at..

Where the heART is  ...last month has gone so very fast and we are up to our second challenge...

Thank you to all who played many lovely creations...

This month we  have awesome sponsors again...

SASSY STUDIO DESIGNS   and the lovable BUGABOO  ..

Our theme we are looking for this month is.. USE A STENCIL...

I used an image from Sassy Studio Designs this time and made a canvas..


There she is with her green skin and showing a bit of leg..really quite beautiful, but I bet she has that Witches cackle..

The background was done with Acrylic paints and the stencil with modelling paste that I made black and added black glitter for a bit of sparkle..

Then came the hairnet and buckle from my stash....

Black raven feathers for leaves with the flowers...and her bottle of sparkly potion in the bottle...

There's the buckle holding the netting in place...

A close up of image holding her broom which I made with twigs of my tree..

Hello Everyone..

Today is Tuesday and I had a much better day at I'm over the Monday blues.

Today I'm sharing a canvas...under the sea, with Sea Turtles..

Green and blue paint painted over Gesso..and then stencilled with modelling paste to make some textured bubbles..

The bottom of the sea bed was stencilled with a swirly stencil after adding green paint to the paste..then loaded up with gems,beads,pearls and micro beads which were really for finger nails from Avon...had them forever.

Using two lids off a glue pen and stickles, I dipped them into white paint and made the circles, then added silver rings from my stash..

There's a shot of the Turtles which I bought from the local book shop..and been waiting to use them for ages.

Another angle of these cute little Turtles..

Hello Everyone..

Oh! is only Monday..I thought it was at least Wednesday..I'm tired

Was going to say it has been a long week, but as it is only Monday, it must have been a rough weekend...I had to work and it was my big weekend, so really I have worked nearly a week...and I'm wafting.....

Today I'm sharing a few male Christmas cards...I love male cards for some reason..

Picture of a Deer in the snow off the designer papers, just navy card and corrugated card...

Splatterings of white paint for extra snow....and white corrugated snowflakes.

Glitter and sentiment, a clear stamp from Kaiser..

Next up....horses in the snow, another internet find..with a Marianne creatables fence and MB pine tree branch...

More white paint splatters and brown corrugated card.

Hello everyone..

Yes, my day off tomorrow..hard to believe that Friday is coming so quick..but lovely to know I have a day off and can play all day if I want to...after I've cleaned up the place and done some grocery shopping..all the yucky stuff.

I found a few challenges to join in with, so made a little canvas..

I spent ages cutting and sticking die cut leaves down onto the canvas..then added so much more stuff you can barely see them..but they're there...somewhere...under the added mesh....then coloured up with those things and going to get some more colours soon...

The black corners is a stencil..the left one, the paste was too thin and it bled, then I remembered you can had talcum powder to thicken the paste, so I did and the other side came out much better...

I sprinkled black glitter on them while wet and the sparkle is so pretty IRL..

The mushrooms were a freebie picture..printed them different sizes, coloured and fussy cut them out..

The leaves along the bottom from my Aussie friend and coloured them with copics and paint.

The beautiful silhouette Fairy from Pia..and I glittered up her wings.. the sentiment off the net..

And that is all she said..

Hello Everyone..

I'm so delighted to be here sharing a project as a Guest Designer for Crafty Boots ..this is a mid way post for their monthly challenge where the theme is..MONOCHROME...

I know!..I hear what you are saying..but there are so many shades of the one colour out there..just nosey through your craft room and you will so pleasantly surprised at how many things you can find in the shades of one colour..

All my canvas is, is all the things I didn't know I had and put them all on a tray and started glueing down..and the  main colour I wanted to use was ORANGE..

I had this picture for awhile and wanted to use hunted through my stash and this is only half of the colour orange I had floating around...

I cheated a little bit with the buttons on the sides, but it is sort of from the same family of oranges..if you squint a bit it is..

A lot of corrugated card [old box] and wooden feathers with little toggle thingys..lace and pearls...loads of different orange flowers..strips of mesh..AND paint..lots of paint.

And a close up of the lovely picture of humming birds...

And my guest badge worn with pride...Thank you Dionne and DT girls for having me...

So do pop over and join in with CRAFTY BOOTS CHALLENGE  ..

Hello everyone..

Half way through our new monthly Mixed Media challenge at Where the heART is  with the theme " Add Text"..

Now you really don't have to do mixed media if you are not comfortable with it..and you can enter cards and anything you want really..just go for it..fabulous sponsors too..

My inspiration piece for our midway reminder is another canvas...using a photo of my G/kids taking a flying leap into the unknown..

Such great happy kids...some brave to tuck the legs up.. one..not too sure..but she has such long legs to tuck up anyway..


Lots of netting, mesh, butterflies , and flowers and of course corrugated card...not happy unless I'm cutting up boxes...

A side view..

And a view of how thick the layers are...

So there we go..go get all painty and messy and rip some boxes up and go for much fun..

Thanks again for stopping by..
