We're Creating a Scene at Try it on Tuesday

The new challenge this fortnight at Try it on Tuesday is Create a Scene.

I've been doing some reorganising while my inspiration is on walkabout and was feeling a bit guilty for the lack of inking with some of my older stamps, so this was the perfect opportunity.  I've used a very old Hampton Art Stamp, there's actually has a black border around the image, which I masked off so she could be sitting in a peaceful countryside, of course dressed like that, she's just taking a break from the party she's hosting in the Manor House!  A few extra lines added to my arched window and we have the corner of a building surrounded by trees and foliage and inked rolling hills.

We'd love to see your choice of scene, so please pop over to the main blog where you will find all the challenge details and see some fabulous inspiration from the DT.

Have a great day,

Summer Time

The last week we have seen a lot of grey skies so I thought I'd create my own Summer Time and join in over at Art Journal Journey where the theme this month is 'A Stitch in Time' chosen by Halle, a great theme as you can use either time related or stitching or both.  I've used 'Summer Time' and some faux stitching.

My image was coloured with Distress Crayons and then I used Scattered Straw and Tumbled Glass Distress spray inks to colour the background, as shown by Tim in one of his recent Saturday videos.
I used some little alphabet peg stamps on my 'label' with faux stitching.

I can't say I've been very productive/creative lately, and I've been a terrible blogger, I really must give myself a good talking to - I've just had a little spend - an early birthday present to myself, so I'm hoping that when they arrive Mr Mojo might make an appearance too.

Have a great day whatever you're doing.

Dance for Tag Tuesday

The theme this fortnight at Tag Tuesday is Dance - Dancing - Dancers  and as I only have one Dancing Lady, she gets another airing.

My background was made with Alcohol inks in water and I've added some colourful stencilling along with a  magazine 'freebie' sentiment which was masked and stamped in two parts.

Thanks for calling in,

Make it Masculine for Try it on Tuesday

The new challenge at Try it on Tuesday is Make it Masculine.

For my card I've used some magazine 'freebie' stamps, I often think these would be useful, buy the magazine and the stamps remain un inked!  The background was made with In the Navy Infusions and Prussian Blue Brushos.  The boots were fussy cut and coloured before adding.

The rest of the Design Team have some fabulous inspiration, so please pop over to the main blog for all the details.

I'm trying out the 'new' blogger with this post - slightly different - they've moved icons around, but the one thing I do like is when you press publish - you get the option to confirm you want to publish -  I don't know about you, but I have been know to press publish instead of preview or save before, and then it's a panic to retrieve it.  It says you can revert back to Legacy Blogger, but I don't know if that's an option after the change over date?

Thanks for calling in,
Avril xx
