In Stitches Tia for Odd Idol

Good afternoon,

I hope you are having a good Tuesday... I've been having a bit of a rest day ... oh and a trip to the Dr to get my sore thumb looked at... Gardening wars :P the rose thorn that hurt me months ago left a lasting infection and so now I'm on antibiotics ... YUKKO .. well hopefully it will fix it up and it will no longer be sore to colour, craft etc etc etc!!

I DID manage to get my Odd on today... to enter the Odd idol competition!! Yay!!! Here's my take on the sketch... using the Some Odd Girl "In Stitches Tia" set.. she's just too cute!! :D

I created my own PP using the buttons from the same set!! :)

Thanks for stopping by! have a lovely day!!

Monday Musings and a little Art journaling

Good morning! I hope you had a lovely weekend! Mine was pretty good... but full on and tiring lol... we went away with our church Growth Group... down the coast to a friend's wonderful holiday house ... so about 3 hours drive... but such a beautiful location and such wonderful weather, it was GLORIOUS! Great fun and fellowship with lovely brothers and sisters in Christ! We finished up The Course of your Life which we've been going through. It's been great looking at God's agenda for our lives :) A good challenge to think through my priorities - how I spend my time ... also a big thing for me and I'm also thinking through how this effects my blogging is that I am too concerned about other people's opinons of me... being liked, pleasing people... when that is not the most important thing.. I may have to think this through a bit more :)

This morning I just finished off an art journal page in my book of fairytales that I'm doing... so page #2 is now complete!! Not sure I  like it ... I struggle with the balance of messiness and order and when to stop and when to keep layering! But I've stopped and here it is :)


Apologies.. the pic is not brilliant as I  had to use my iphone!

Have a wonderful week!!

Gone a little ODD

Good morning!! I went a little ODD this morning lol... and I  created not one but TWO
Some Odd Girl Creations....

I finally got a chance this morning to watch Kristy's youtube tutorials on colouring Cloudy Sky and Grass, and I  got to have a play too!!

So first up is my card with the clouds.... I used Autumn Mae.. as it's been a cloudy Autumn and yet a summery sky Autumn too so far... much more windy today though..... anyway enough waffling... Here's my card...

I used Brads to mimic flowers and the little Ladybug brad too as there is currently a  Trash your Stash of Brads challenge going on at the SOG NING forum!!

The Rainbow is a chipboard one from 2Crafty that I coloured with Copics and then opaque white and gelatos!! With a nice dash of Kinderglitz on top! lol! The sentiment is from My Favourite Things!!

2nd card (below) is for the April Sketch challenge at Some Odd Girl and uses Mooey!!!

 Thanks for stopping by ... I hope you have a super Friday! and then a fun weekend!!!

The Girl who was on Fire

Good afternoon! I drew this image a while ago... after having a chat with Alyce ... we were thinking it would be fun to try and colour a dress to look like Katniss in her dress that was on fire from the Hunger games!! Had a bit of trouble finding an image we thought would be good for it and so I thought I'd just try and draw my own... well it seems that was the easy part... not as easy colouring it making it look like it was on fire... anyway here's an attempt! I'm Still waiting for Alyce to do her one (hint, hint :) are you reading this???? lol)

Want to give it a try?? This image is now at Mad for Markers with some other fun characters too!

Have a great arvo!!!

Paper dolls!!!

Oh I have been a big kid lately... reliving childhood memories of Paperdolls.. I thought it would be fun to make some.. so I've been designing and colouring and cutting and using my Cameo to cut for me and having all sorts of fun creating mixmatched characters!! I am selling them in a number of different ways on Mad for Markers ...  Anyway I wanted to share the gang with you....

this adorably rabble-y lot are:
Rhys, Pippi, Taya, Ryan, Archie and Brianna
OK so they are just paper dolls right.... kids would love them but no use for us crafters??? WRONG! lol.. look what I made by paper piecing Taya and one of the girl outfits ...

So much fun and so many different options.. and I  have so many more ideas for outfits for them too!! :) Oh and I am going to make up a bunch and sell them as all ready made paper dolls... like this example below of Taya.. she is just under A4 size tall :)

Thanks for stopping by!! Have a lovely day!!

Monday moments

Good afternoon :) I hope you are having a great Monday!! Mine going ok but it's been a long one!! Could do with a nana nap but not going to be so will just plod along lol!! It's been a productive day .. Highlights - Some cleaning, chatting over iphone messages and facebook and some home haircut hacking ... Mine and MILs .. Should have had a professional do hers I think ... O well... Was a bit of fun anyway!!

I just created this card .. I coloured this image up the other night in front of the tele... It happens quite a bit hehe .. Have to colour whilst watching!! Today I'm posting from my iPad .. Hope it comes out ok :)

The paper is Kaisercraft .. And the spotted paper totally inspired my colouring of the mushie ... love it!! The sentiment is from Give a Girl a ... ...I won this set and love it!!!! I did crop around the text though as the circle was slightly too big for my card :) and the cute lil Dragonfly chippy is from All about Scrapbooks here

Anyways have a lovely afternoon!

It's FRIDAY!!!!

Ok.... I do love Friday!! Well really mostly because it means Saturday and Sunday come next .. I also love this Creeper from The Greeting Farm.... who is called Friday!! :) An oldie but a goodie :D She was one of the images I'd coloured for the show "tree display" and so the card was a nice easy one to make :D

The paper is a new 6 x 6 paper pad I  bought from All About Scrapbooks at the show ... I LOVE these small paper packs.. they are just perfect for cardmakers  :D Oh and did you see?? Emma, Alyce!! Anyone who cares lol.... I USED FLOWERS!!! tee hee!!! 

OK.... I've been working on something images, Silhouettey... and it should be lots of fun.. once I  work out why it won't cut in the RIGHT spot!! ahhhhhhhh!! 

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend!!!

Shows over ... I'm back

Good morning!! Last week I was preoccupied with a Papercrafts Show... I booked Mad for Markers in (pretty last minute) to have a stand and so I was rushing to get everything done.. and then of course I was at the show... and then I came home and crashed! But I'm feeling almost human again now lol and so I'm FINALLY blogging again...

Yesterday I  finished off an Art journal page I started a couple of months ago.... It was just waiting for inspiration which came via the Gelatos I purchased from All About Scrapbooks. Loving them so far!!

Ok so to the Art Journal... this is the FIRST page in a book I've altered to a journal... it's an old Kids Dictionary that I  picked up at the Stash and Treasure market ... I'm going to have a series of Fairy journal pages in it... yeah.. I still love Fairies... little kid in an adults shell here (in case you didn't know) tee hee! This page uses Love Fairy Venetia... I printed her very pale to do the no lines effect... once covered with gel glue she really popped off the page (bit harder to tell from the photo). In other exciting craft news I  received my new Silhouette cameo BLADE yesterday so I can cut again lol!

Here's  a picture of my Tree display from the show last weekend! The upside of the time it took to create is that all those leaves have coloured images on them which I can now turn into cards... which is particularly great for a QUICK card! so I should have some more creations to blog soon!!!

Thanks for stopping by!
