SWEET SIXTEEN..



Hello Everyone..

I was cooking sausages tonight for tea..not something I eat very often at all..and all the little knobs squirted out and went brown and crunchy and I suddenly thought of husband and the tears started...isn't that strange..he loved the knobs on the sausages and obviously the memory came..just been his 8th Anniversary.

All good now..and onto my project for today...which is not a DT for a change, but one for me and I must admit I'm very pleased with it..

This gorgeous image is called "Bird Hair" ..from Julia Spiri  and she is just beautiful...



I loved colouring her in with my Reno Art markers and Faber Castell pencils for shading....




Me new favourite colour is the turquoise...





The bird border cut out from WOC...so pretty....





Flowers from WOC.. and the stamens from my client [ she gave me literally thousands of these]



A side view showing the beautiful new die from my Aussie friend [thank you]...





Another side view with the tulle tucked in behind...


So there we go..had a wonderful time colouring this little lass up..hope you like it and thanks ever so much for stopping by...

SOUTHERN GIRLS - DT -TEAM TRACE



Hello Everyone..

A new challenge starts today at the SOUTHERN GIRLS  and this time it is Team Trace in the spotlight and the theme is...TEXTURE ..

Our sponsor is THE EASTWIND  and I was able to choose this gorgeous image to play with...

AURORA FLORAL KISS  



There she is...so lovely and so easy to colour with my Reno Art Markers..

My texture is the corrugated cardboard box, where I peeled layers of paper off and added a borders of die cut flowers either side...then the butterflies....I KNOW..Texture, you would think I would go crazy with it..but this image was just too pretty to muck around with.



A close up of Aurora...did a bit of shading with Faber Castell pencils and her cheeks with pink eye shadow...[ I do not use these eye shadows on my eyes at any time..they are cheap and tacky with horrible colours..but perfect for adding details on projects..just saying..lol..]





And a side view...

So there we go..it would be great if you could check out the inspiration from my Teamies HERE

I'm picking the top five this time so do me proud and add all your fabulous texture projects in our challenge and really make it difficult for me to choose..okay!!


Thanks so much for stopping by..the countdown is still on..only 4 more sleeps then back to work...

DIGITAL DELIGHTS - DT AND A DISASTER



Hello Everyone....

Welcome to Delightful Thursday..

Inspiration time with DIGITAL DELIGHTS and yes, I had a disaster...

This time I was able to play with CHOMPERS  ..but...we had a chemical unbalance, and this was the result..



The grass [paint] had a reaction to something I put on there and it bubbled and bled and stayed all sticky..and I hated it..so back to drawing board...

The next one I was much happier with, so here we go..



This is CHOMPERS ..I made the hills with green cardstock..inked up the edged a bit and added die cut trees...



Using papers from the store I made the clouds...Blossoming Egg Paper Set



There's a close up of CHOMPERS sitting inside his burrow on the side of the hill...with MB bamboo shoots around the entrance..the "Stones"were made by dipping the end of my pencil in paint and dotting it around...


There is a side view to see the dimension ...



And there is the bottom with the stamped grasses and flowers and the Marianne creatable fence cut in half..or the pickets were cut off..gives a whole new fence to play with..

So there we go..pulled myself together and got on with the job and feel so much better..

Thanks so much for stopping by... and see you day after tomorrow..
