I'm LATE... I'm LATE!!

I feel very much so like the white rabbit these days... running late LOTS!! I said last Monday I would be posting the very next day well.. the card was made.. the picture was taken BUT the blog did not get written! Life's a little crazy but I guess that's just the season I'm in at the moment! A cRazY Season! :)

anyway enough babbling... I'm here to share my second card I made with the lovely Krista's delightful image "Starla" SHE is coloured in LOTS of different colours..

I don't usually like using soo many colours on the one image lol... but She was shouting out for colour and it fits in with the papers too!! I LOVE colouring her hair and this time I've tried to get a better pic to show you the sparkles from the Spica I  used!!!

a close up to show her sparkly hair.. it looks so much better in real life though!

Gotta dash... back later .. hopefully sooner rather than too much later!

Take care!

I do love anything sparkly and so when I saw Krista's image Starla I was totally inspired to purchase and colour that sparkly chick ASAP!! :D

Here's my first attempt...

My favourite colours too!! hehe!!! The 2nd one I did went OUTSIDE my comfy zone... but will  share that one tomorrow! :D I used SPICAS on this but I didn't get that photo to show the sparkle too well... need to stop using my iphone and charge the REAL camera up!

Isn't she cute standing there with the "Mo" I find it hilarious that moustaches are "IN" at the moment... but it's also because this little aussie is not that into halloween.. it's not BIG here like over the seas hehe!!

I Smashed a Little Fairy today!!

Lol... funny title right?? Well... I found this little fairy skulking around the garden today and so I decided to Smash her! tee hee... no actually... I was colouring up Krista's Gorgeous "Got Washi" girl and I had a sudden urge to sketch up a fairy who had been "caught" and stuck into a Smash book lol.. so here she is.... Afterwards I realised it's a bit reminiscent of that squashed Fairy book.. I must go look that up I think! (edited - The book I was thinking of was called Lady Cottington's Pressed Fairy book)

This page is in my Mini Smash book!! THANKS ASH!!!! xxxx
It's basically a fun Smash/ journal page on Washi tape  :)

I thought I might do a giveaway and so if you email me I will send you your own Got Washi'ed Fairy image to colour and Smash.... I have taken off the spots so you can decorate the tape as your favourite Washi design :)

Colouring and extra doodling with Multiliners.

Good morning!! There is a new challenge NOW live on the Mad for Markers Challenge blog and we want you to use Multiliners... NOW I sometimes love adding a bit extra to a card or picture and I usually do this with a multiliner.. on this piccy I've doodled in some butterflies and trails as well as outlining the flowers!

I also LOVE the different filters etc on the Camera+ app on my phone.. and so the colours here are a bit warped and there is added texture/ grit around the edges that is not there IFL.. :)

Have a lovely day! I'm off to hang out with MIL before I  take her out to "test" a day respite centre... then I'll be back home to do some more work!! :0
