How long?

Hello All,

I can't believe how long its been since I last blogged.  It was a bit of a job logging in to be honest, I had to remember passwords and all sorts - did wonder if I'd lost my blog, but, relief! its still here.

Today I'm blogging for Tando Creative.  This week its the colour theme and this is the colour palette for May:-

Isn't it a pretty selection?

So, here's my ATC coin for the month…

The Tando Creative AT Coin was painted using paperartsy fresco paint in stone.  I then added my colour layers.  Using one of the longer stencils I added some circles, before adding a Tim Holtz figure and saying.

Pop on over to the Tando Creative blog where you will find loads of inspiration.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to you all!

I've been neglecting my blog over the last year or so.  To be honest, 2018 wasn't a very nice year! and that's putting it mildly! I've certainly come to realise exactly who my friends are and who I can rely on.  Putting that aside, and back in its box, today is the start of 2019 and a new clean slate!! I don't make resolutions, but, have definite objectives for this year!!

Today its my turn over on the Tando Creative blog - I've been part of this design team for a very long time and I never miss the colour weeks - last years mixed media boards, plus other projects have all been stored here:-

I can't get anymore in there, so I need to get a new box for 2019's creations…

So, this years first colour palette is:-

and this year's offerings are going to be coins or cards, of the artist trading variety!!

Happy New Year, see you tomorrow!

Colour week Tando Creative

Hi, today its my turn over on the Tando Creative Blog.

This week is a colour week, and Novembers colour palette is:-

Festive berry colours…

So, here is number 11 mixed media board

This is one of the larger boards and was painted using paperartsy fresco paints.  I usually use all five colours on my projects, but, this month I decided to just use three….. I also dug out my crackle texture paste as I was keen to try a technique I saw on facebook, it didn't turn out as I wanted but its a good first attempt!! the base was stencilled using the tando sequin waste stencil, a mini arrow and whimsical house was also added.

Do pop along to the Tando blog for some more colour inspiration this week.

Hello on this Hallowe'en Wednesday…. today is my first Wednesday post over on the bubbly funk blog - this will now be my regular day, so you'll know where to find me!!

Today, I decided to do a one page book - I've not seen these before and they are really easy to do so I will be making many more!!

This is the front of my book.
Using my gelli plate, I added paint, added a stencil, and then took a print with an a4 sheet of paper.  Using one of the new Bubbly Funk Stencils (released tomorrow) I added stars to my sheet and painted.  Due to the base being paper it took a while for each stage to dry… and I must admit I did get a bit impatient!! Once dry I folded into the book.

I decorated each double spread separately….

each page was decorated using neocolour 2 pencils, stamps and doodles!!
