Rory Over the Rainbow

Good afternoon to you all

It is raining in my neck of the woods with snow falling in the ranges, so I am keeping warmRory over the rainbow by the fire and doing a little colouring.

Today I have a stamp from Lacy Sunshine, Oz Collection, she is called Rory’s Over the Rainbow.  Rory is one of my favourite characters from Lacy Sunshine.

She has been coloured with copics and the background has been done with layers of Dylusions paints, stencils, gelatos, white and black pens.

Thank you for joining me.

Mid Winter Christmas

Good evening everyone, enjoy a cup of coffee or a cold drink and come visit for awhile.

It is Thrifty Thursday over at Scrappers Delight and we are celebrating Mid Winters Christmas.  What a great way to get a head start on all those Christmas Cards.  I am seeing many friends on facebook getting a head start and I need to do the same.  I have made a start with my lovely Ice Skating Elf, she has been coloured with copics and so has the background.  Check out the Christmas section.

Art Journal Stripes

13606677_1323935257620778_5705174714773578237_nWhen we were given the weekly prompt from Joggles.com’s Art Journal Adventure of stripes last week, I had no idea what I was going to do apart from use some deli paper.  It has then taken almost the full week to sit down and see what I could come up with.  The background has been done with Dylusions paints which I love and used teal and blue.  Once I added the ripped deli paper I could see a beach/ sea page coming together.  I had coloured up a stamp from Artbymarin (girl) and hadn’t done anything with her and she just seemed a perfect fit for a page.  I have used texture gel for the sun, shells and footprints in the sand. On the other page I have used Scrappers Delight’s progressive challenge stamp, both stamps were coloured with copics.

Since I am still new at the art journal thing, I am pretty happy how these pages turned out.

Thank you for stopping by.

Kuretake Gansai Tambi Watercolours

Happy Sunday to you, well I guess for most people it is Saturday.  About a month ago I order a 36 set of Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolours after hearing what a lot of crafters/artists were saying.  They finally arrived yesterday and earlier in the week a waterproof black stamp pad also arrived.  So I am now ready to use watercolours in my art journal.  This is the first quick little project I did yesterday.  The stamps are from Polkadoodles and are the Stamp Me Easy Daisy series, the quote is from QuoteDaily.com. 20160626_095736_resized Unfortunately I used cheap watercolour paper, but I can work with that.  I am happy with the watercolours, but would like to see another brown included in the set, but wouldn’t like to give up any of the other colours though.  So now my art journaling journey continues.

Thank you for stopping by.

Art Journal

Good Evening and thank you for stopping by.

I have been having fun with Lixie Pixie from Scrappers Delight and stamps from Polkadoodles, Magic Garden. Lixie Pixie is coloured with copics as part of my DT for June.  I started thinking about what I could do with her and thought about the Mushrooms from Polkadoodles and an art journaling page.  Week 25 prompt for Joggles Art Journal Adventure was a fantasy colouring and the mushrooms fitted the bill perfectly.  I used acrylic paint for the background, applied with fingers and babywipes.  The leaf stamp is from the Dylusions range. I used Pitt pen for the border and outline of the stamps.
