After rain and grey skies I felt that I should make my own sunny day - so a bright sunny background using Distress inks. The Cone flowers were coloured and fussy cut and then attached with 3D foam and I've used some artistic licence with the stems. The sentiment is PaperArtsy.
A short post today, I always seem to be running out of time these days.
Have a great day whatever you're doing.
Rain and more rain so what's a girl supposed to do? Craft of course!
A productive day in the craft room and a crafty afternoon with a friend yesterday - can't think of anything better!
I've admired this Art Journey stamp, so when she just happened to fall into the basket, well I couldn't put her back. An inky background with Dried Marigold and Twisted Citron Oxide sprays, stencilling with Victorian Velvet DI and some neglected Tim Holtz stamps before masking off and stamping 'Freya' with Versafine Onyx Black. I am entering this at Stamping Sensations, where the theme this month is Show Your True Colours.
I also made a tag to join in the challenge at Tag Tuesday which is Beverages. The image is one of those little 'freebies' that come with your order from Crafty Individuals. I've used a stencil and Distress inks for the background.
Well, it looks like today has more rain in store, will it ever stop.
It's time for a new challenge at Try it on Tuesday and for this fortnight 'It's a Mans World' which could be good timing for Fathers Day or a masculine birthday.
I've made another Oxide ink on glossy photo paper background. My main image was stamped and fussy cut before applying. I've then stamped a couple of the extra images from the stamp set with black and brown Stazon inks. The sentiment was computer generated.
The rest of the Design Team have some wonderful inspiration for you, so please pop over to the main blog for all the details.
A simple page with torn die cuts Gessoed and then Oxide sprays in Dried Marigold and Twisted Citron. Some stencilling in Wild Honey Oxide before stamping the large butterfly and quote from the TH Perspective set. I do love this quote as I sometimes think we make life more complicated than it needs to be, or is that just me!
Thanks for calling in and hopefully this little blog won't be so neglected.
Edited to add - I'm prompting myself to enter a few of my favourite challenges and so I'm going to link this up to Penny Black and More where the theme this month is Blooms, Butterflies and/or Bugs.
Well, the best laid plans - full of good intentions for this week, but it's only today that I've managed some crafty time. I set myself a goal this year to join in every month at Art Journal Journey and I'm just scraping in with one day to spare with this page. The theme this month is In the Sky/In the Air set by Erika.
Hello, well I'm back from holiday and just in time for a new challenge at Try it on Tuesday. The theme for this fortnight is Make a Mark - abstract pagers, grids, circles, chevrons just to name a few, but I'm sure you will have lots of ideas of your own.
I've used one of my Oxide ink and photo paper backgrounds made with Picked Raspberry. I've used a stencil with Seedless Preserve and Cracked Pistachio - (although that's not showing too well in the photo) before adding a stamped border, computer words and my 'Best Friends'.
The rest of the Design Team have some fabulous inspiration for you, so please pop over to the main blog, where you will also find all the challenge details.
The washing and ironing is done, the family have visited, so hopefully a free day to do some blog visiting and play with some new goodies that I didn't get time to open/ink before I went off.
Hi, my name is Avril and I live in the North East of England. I have always been interested in crafting , usually of the needlework kind. However, since discovering card making, it has become a bit of an 'addiction' .
