Twinkle, Twinkle

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.

A simple page with a starry sky and the title of an early 19th century  Lullaby.

Thanks for calling in,

Make a Mark for Try it on Tuesday

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.

Have a great day,
Avril xx

Cellebrate! TioT is 10 years Old!

You're Invited to Celebrate 
Try it on Tuesday's 10th Birthday

Yes, it's Birthday time at Try it on Tuesday where we're Celebrating 10 years of Blog Challenges and we're all in Party Mode, so what better time to make a fun Birthday card.

I've used one of the Crazy Cats and I must admit he does look a little bewildered to be Celebrating 10 years at TioT!

I made good use of a mop up background and added stencilled stars and circles and of course he had to have balloons and a sparkly bow tie along with his top hat.

I hope you will join us this fortnight and join in the fun and  help yourself to the 'TioT Party badge.   All the details along with the rest of the Design Teams makes can be found on our main blog.

This is a schedule post, as wer'e away on holiday, but hopefully I'll still be able to catch up with you.

Organic and Shabby

Hello, I'm sharing a card I made recently using the Organic die as a background.  I took my inspirations from this tag,   I used Kraft card as I loved the shabby effect after sanding and it was painted with PaperArtsy Concrete.  The flower was cut with watercolour paper and coloured with Abandoned Coral DI and I distressed the edges of the base layer with Abandoned Coral, although it does look quite pale in the photo,  I haven't added a sentiment, yet.

A short post as I desperately need to do some catching up with commenting - DT and my own!
Enjoy the rest of the Bank Holiday weekend.
