Tag Tuesday

Tag Tuesday Challenge #27 is another colour challenge, this week it is red, green and golden yellow. Found an old masterboard in my bit box and took this piece from it, added a bit of gold on the berries and the star for the golden yellow and voila!

Let it Snow!

Danielle was certain she would be the envy of Paris in her new coat with the fur lined hood - let it snow! My entry for Sunday Postcard Art.

Saturday Surprise

This week's challenge on Saturday Surprise is 'Christmas in Unconventional Colours,' (no red or green). I chose to use kraft, white and blue. The snowman and Merry Christmas are from a set by Inkadinkadoo. I used a blue gel pen to add colour to the scarf and hat. Tis the season! Cheers!

Sunday Postcard Art - Flourishes

The Sunday Postcard Art challenge this week is 'Flourishes.' My photo has a bit of slant to it, the Merry Christmas is not really on an angle, but this was my best pick. The Santa is from Collagevisions, tree from Tim Holtz, expression from Inkadinkadoo and flourish from Autumn Leaves. Thanks for looking!

Tag It On #23 - Face to Face

This is not a very good photograph, I am so missing my scanner! Our computer has been out of commission for several weeks now so I cannot scan or print. When I think of all the times I cursed my scanner...

This was a very interesting challenge from Frankie at DragonsDream. The Tag It On challenge is called "Face to Face." We were to use a piece of background paper we had created with alcohol inks and then stamp faces all over it; we could then use markers to colour any parts if we wanted.

My background was done using two colours of blue inks, its a little hard to distinguish in the picture. When I stamped the faces onto it, it was then in the ugly know that stage that creations go through but usually manage to come out on the other side...hopefully,hee, hee.I then took some old paper distress ink and added some text and crowns and suddenly it had life!

I'm so glad Frankie came up with this, the process was revealing. Hope your challenges are interesting today - cheers!

every morning and carefully pour just the right amount of hot water through the filter, only while there is still foam, ahhh - it's calling me now!
3. And what goes better with coffee than chocolate!
4. Obsessed with craft supplies...aren't we all?
