Dreaming of a Rainbow...

April 28th 2017


A "Rainbow" ATC using one of the gorgeous Journal Gals from the Vera Lane Studio Journal Faces Digi Set! Background is a paint chip sample - I'm hoping to find some more like this - they had lots of little coloured samples on the larger size background - great for cutting to ATC size!

 
Digi image coloured with pastel pencils and fussy cut. I used coloured Posca pens to edge the atc and to add coloured lines around some of the purple squares. I ink sprayed a scrap of muslin and added to the card with the digi and computer generated wording!
 
I'm entering this in the current Wicked Wednesday ATC Challenge where Vera Lane Studio is a sponsor - theme of "Make Your Own Sunshine"!

Precious....

April 28th 2017
A quick post today to share an altered index card using a digi stamp by Sheepski Designs - available at Etsy!


I used my gelli plate to create the background on this 6 x 4 index card - I love the pattern and colours - not colours I would normally use so working outside the box! Digi stamp coloured with pastel pencils and fussy cut and adhered to the page. I added the "precious" sticker and some scraps of sticky ribbon as well to finish it off.

Fly with Art....

April 27th 2017


Two blue & white themed altered index cards for one of the Facebook Challenges at the Gecko Galz Group! All patterned papers and collage elements are available from Gecko Galz.


 
I layered the patterned papers on the cards - a great way to use up scraps and bits of odd shaped and sized papers! Waste not want not LOL!!! The women images were fussy cut and added to the cards with a couple of other collage images and scraps of muslin cloth. "Fly" & "Art" are letter stickers to finish them off!

Paradise with Some Odd Girl!

26th April 2017


I created this altered collaged index card for the current Some Odd Girl "Nothing Square" Blog Challenge!


I used a paper pack and matching elements from Kaisercraft - a perfect match for this gorgeous image "Tropical Piper" by Some Odd Girl! Image printed on watercolour paper and coloured with watercolour pencils. Added a bit of hessian and scrap of cloth. love how it turned out!

Hmm I Choose You.....

April 24th 2017
A mini pocket letter made for a "Love" themed swap for an Aussie swap group I belong to. Papers and images are a mixture of Gecko Galz and a Valentine's collage sheet by Heather Hudson.


It's always fun to make a mini pocket letter - a bit quicker to make 3 ATC inserts than the full sheet of nine!! I used black card for the ATC bases and then cut patterned tags from the sheet by Heather to fit slightly smaller than the base and used my sewing machine to attach them. I added Heart/Love Bingo cards by Gecko Galz and the stunning Woman also by Gecko Galz (from the Tattooed Women Collage Set). A bit of muslin, paper clip, charm and string to finish it all off! I love the colour tones and how it all turned out. Of course the back pockets were filled with a tea bag and extra goodies for the recipient!


3 Words: Little Black Dress

April 23rd 2017


"Miss Dee" would have to be one of my most favourite characters from Vera Lane Studio!!! she can be creepy and dark or as you can see today she is "Elegant" in fact "E is for Elegant" - which is the current challenge at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers Blog!!!!
 

 
Page background was gessoed first and then I used red & black ink sprays to make "dribbles" down the page. I added lace & braid and then secured t all with my sewing machine. Miss Dee was coloured with pastel pencils and fussy cut - notice I added some ruby earrings LOL!!! I stamped the "3 words: little black dress" with black ink and some alphabet stamps I found in my stash! I am really happy with how this page came out and Miss Dee has been waiting for a special occasion to come out and the new "Elegant" challenge was the perfect reason to get dressed up!

Tall Town.......

April 22nd 2017
A new "Tall Town" set of digis was released at the start of the week by Janet at Vera Lane Studio!


I made very long bookmarks!! For the background I used a brayer and acrylic paint on cardstock and cut to size and mounted on tan coloured card. Tall houses were coloured with pastel pencils and fussy cut. Wording digis also by Vera Lane Studio were printed on kraft cloured paper and adhered to the tops of the bookmarks along with some muslin cloth scraps. To finish off I added some string to punched holes at the top of each.


These digis mix and match perfectly with all the other quirky and fun characters available at Vera Lane Studio!!
