Gnome for Christmas

Have you checked out the digital images over at SheepSki Designs lately?
There are some gorgeous new one that have been added recently.

Here is Gnome for Christmas.


Ekkkkkkk how sweet!!!!
He reminds me of Grandpa Smurf!
I have coloured with copic markers and used pink glitter gel pen on his hat and boots trimming - it really sparkles on an angle.....LOL, the new age smurf, Gnome that he is!
I think the cute Christmas tree die cuts help create a postcard type feel.

The song is ended.....

Time for another Blog Challenge  over at Oddball Stamps.


As always, our Challenge is Anything Goes with an Optional Theme
- this month's is "Cemeteries" .... perfect for Halloween.



Coloured with Copic Markers and black gel pen.

My background is using my Distress Oxide inks with water sprays.
I left it as it was as I was hoping for an eerie effect....LOL, close enough!
This actually does look better in real life. 

The saying "The song has ended but the melody lingers on" I found using google as I was thinking how she looks like she is sitting there pondering life.

It's a pretty simple Journal Page, but when you think about it like our girl, life is pretty simple until you choose to complicate it!

Spellbound Planner Sticker Kit


New in the Scrapper's Delights store for October.


Spellbound Planner Sticker Kit   

Here's my Planner Page Layout for Halloween week.



I had a lot fun playing with the kit.
I use a Recollections Spiral Planner so you just have to resize down a bit - I resized to 90% and am happy with it.
There is so much more in the kit that you can use for everyday weeks in your Planner, or even just on your card projects or scrapbook layouts as well.

Don't forget that the image Ghosts is being used in the Facebook Page's Progressive Challenge this month and would fit this kit perfectly.
We would love you to join in.


Thanks so much for visiting my blog.

Until next time, Happy Crafting.

Coloured with copic markers in mainly pinks and autumn tones for the season.
Water based ink pads and aqua pens used for the background.
Stamped sentiment is from Jaded Blossom as is the Banner Die I used to die cut it out.

Ula Don't Listen Canvas

I am being a Guest Designer today over at We Love 2 Create.

Polkadoodles is now Sponsoring this Challenge Blog and as such, some of us team members will be doing a Guest Designer spot to help showcase the ways you can use the images in your Mixed Media projects.

SO, I made a canvas for you using Ula's Life Don't Listen black & white digi and the sentiment from Ula's Life Be Strong.



I had some inky fun making the background of the canvas.
Firstly I coloured Ula with my copic markers and cut her with my scan n cut machine with my usual border. Hmmmm no, would look better cut to the edge, so hand fussy cutting it was!.
Ok, so now onto the canvas.
I used my Gelli Plate with paints and stencils to create and muck up and mix a background....I'm not kidding, LOL, a few choice words and more paint added.....the phrase "you just couldn't leave it could you" came to mind on a few occasions. Anyways, isn't that part of the learning journey.
Once the paint was dry, I added texture paste with stencils. The bottom left I have added some blue and green glitter (yes I know, even in real life it's hard to see!!!!!) but you can see it. The top right has transparent paste with yellow airbrush paint mixed through so you can still see through it a bit but have a vibrant colour.
Next I added some flying birds in the top left corner with navy paint and a stencil and a few wood strips on the bottom left using the same navy paint and one of my rubber stamps.
LOL, if you follow my blog, you would know I am still learning this Mixed Media, so yes, I'm proof you can do it to!
Ok, nearly done - just die cut the saying with a nice tag and add a metal flower and then a glitter enamel dot to the centre.
All done!

I hope I have inspired you, if not, at least entertained you with my efforts.

Why not hop over to the Blog Challenge and see what the lovely Designers have created for you.

I am entering her in the following Challenges:
  1. A Inky Mess # 14
  2. The Crafty Addicts # 41
  3. Creative Knockouts # 214
  4. Through The Purple Haze # 135
  5. Lil Patch of Crafty Friends # 67

Trick or Treat ATC

Time for a quick Inspiration Post for our Oddball Art Stamps Facebook Challenge 
starting today - Always Anything Goes.


I have used the October Free Image of the Month - Creepy Cute Halloween Candy & Bone IMG105 with Blood Thirsty Becky IMG 122 and one of the sentiments from Halloween Sentiments IMG 98  to create my ATC to inspire you.


I love how the 3 sets combined just look right together.
Coloured with Copic Markers and Black and White Gel pens.
I die cut the image card using a Tag die and added a little die cut bow to sweeten it a bit with a candy dot.
The Candy and Bones image I fussy cut and adhered to the front of the tag.

Now do remember that I live in Australia so if you think the Candy Corn is the wrong colour, yes it may well be as I haven't seen them here in Australia.
