Drinks - Karleigh Sue style

I want to start out with wishing you all a wonderful Easter!!!  I hope that you will be surrounded with your loved ones.

I shared with you last time my new passion :)  it really is fun to glue stuff together!!!!  You should join in the "en masse" collecting and you can see more here. One of my collections for my En masse journaling was Drinks!!!!  And there were lots of fab digis from Karleigh Sue that fit this new page spread!!!  So I figure it would be a fab make for my inspiration post for Karleigh Sue.

So I thought Poodle skirt for the milkshakes, Pumpkin Spice Latte for the great COFFEE and Just Beer would be perfect to illustrate my favorite drinks!!!  I cropped the images,

And here's the make with the image colored with copics.  The rest is images that I cut out of magazines as well as some sentiments done with my label maker.

 Hope you like it!!!

I'm entering this little spread in the following challenges:

Hey everyone!!!  It's Friday and I'm on vacation YAY!!!!!! I'm so very happy and plan on making some makes and miscellaneous craft this weekend as well as rest.  I'm tired.... my doctor is changing my meds :( the good news is that it should help to reduce the weight gain that I was having as well as helping me because I was falling recently... oh well it's an endless fight right?!?  But so long as I'm still here I'm fighting that depression!

So anyway I'm here today not to share all my story with you but to share with you my BIG out of the box journaling this time with a FAB dragon from Faery Ink.

And for those of you that don't want to watch the video here's the make.
The sentiment that I used is from Ginger house Just love those sentiments.  I have used lots of bling and for the very 1st time some glass fragments as well.  The image was colored with my copics and my gelly roll pen.

I'm entering this in the following challenges:

  1. C.R.A.F.T. - Bling challenge - there's lots of bling on this
  2. Craft rocket challenges - anything goes

Miss Cherry - Karleigh Sue

Ohhhh I'm here to share with you a new passion and a little make for the Karleigh Sue Blog :)  Yes I have to admit it I just LOVE glueing stuff together!!!!  And this was soooo much fun.  I'm doing a little "en masse" journal collection.  You can join the group that showcases this on FB here. The idea behind this is to collect items and glue them down.  But of course I can't just do that... I need to have a story to tell!  For this layout I was making a collection of glasses!

So I thought Miss Cherry would be totally perfect.  I cropped the image and put her among the glasses.  The images for the glasses come from magazine as well as from pictures online and a little pair of sunglasses that I photographed that belonged to my dad.

And here's the make with the image colored with copics.  The background was just done with some paint put on a gesso background.  The journal is a Reader's Digest that I glued pages together and I'm using for this.

 Hope you like it!!!

I'm entering this little layout in the following challenges:

  1. Everybody-art-challenge - Anything goes
  2. Lemon shortbread challenge - anything goes

ATC - Original art

Hey everyone!  Hope you are doing well.  I spent the weekend at my dad and had so much fun we created a shelf for our garage using some awesome pipes!!!!   I will be sharing this with you later.  I also created a little shelf with him but that too I will share later.

I also decided to try making a little drawing and then coloring it with my copics.  And I made the ATC here.  I have a swap coming up and I had thought it might be fun.   This is the 1st time that I color my own drawing with copics.  Please be gentle.

When stamping the word Fierce with my Dina Walkley stamp I made a big line over the forehead.... I was soooooo disappointed....   And then I figured I could do a little headband on her.  I'm pretty happy with how that covered up my booboo.... I was at the point of just crying.... lol

  1. 613 Avenue Create - Anything goes - optino bird - didn't do that

Karleigh Sue - New release - oldies :)

Hello everyone!  Instead of doing a new release this time we are doing an oldies make.  And I decided to use the fabulous digi I'm so fancy in my "en masse journaling" which is basically a grouping of image and gluing them together.  You have to watch the video from Shannon Green to get the full idea.
And so for my very 1st spread I'm doing it about shoes!!!  I just ADORE shoes!  Pens, paper shoes :)  yeah I'm weird I love the girly stuff as well as the crafty stuff.  It's actually an issue if I have to decide what to spend my money on.

So that image was just PERFECT for this spread because she's lying on a shoe!!!  I colored her up with my copics.

 I did the background with some brushoes.  And then lots of cutting up of shoes from magazines.  I've been cutting lots of them during my lunch hour.  And it's really addictive.  I also cut out the words that would fit with this "shoes, chaussures".

My base is a Reader's digest magazine that I glued pages together in and I added some gesso.  It's kinda small but was the perfect thing for my 1st en masse endeavor.
The bling is from the dollar store.  I thought it woudl be fun to spell out heaven with that.  The image was colored with my copics.

Here's a closer look at the digi.
I just couldn't seem to just do the cutting and gluing... I needed to add a digi that I color to the page.  It finished it off!

I'm entering this in the following challenges:

  1. Crafty sentiments - Anything goes
  2. Lemon shortbread challenge - anything goes
  3. Sweet stamps blog - anything goes
  4. Craft your passion challenges - anything goes
  5. Eureka stamps - anything goes
That's it for me for today!!!  Hope you like this and go and check out Karleigh Sue digis as well as the En masse journaling!!!  Please also go and check out my giveaway here.

Skull Ka bob - RSD metal magic FB challenge

Hello everyone!  It's time for me to share with you my make for the FB challenge over at RSD which is all about metals this month.

When I thought of metal it made me think of my weekend not long ago where my internet provider totally MESSED up.... 

I had told the nice lady that called to ask how my service was that it was going slow and how we were not using the TV service as much either.  She offered to make my internet service faster and cheaper and my tv service cheaper!  Boy was I excited about that.  This was the Friday night.  On Saturday morning while I was out to do an errand a technician showed up.   And since there was no adult home he just said that he couldn't do the job and left.

When I got home and I heard this news I was very surprised because that lady had never mentioned that a technician needed to come over... And what was my surprise?!?  Well the internet and tv didn't work.... so now I was getting upset.  I called in support and the 1st response that I got was that there seemed to be something terribly wrong in my file and that he couldn't do anything for me... I needed to go to the next level of support.  That was getting frustrating because that level was too busy and they would have to call me back.

By the time I got the call back 2 hours later, I spent another 30 minutes on the phone waiting and then another hour with the technician who told me that they would have to send someone over!!!!  I was FUMING!!!!  Hence this page... this is what I would have liked to do to them!

You can find this great image Skull Ka Bob here.

They were lucky they sent a very nice technician the next day who spent 3/4 of the day fixing the issues that the previous technician had done....

The lesson here.... is don't TOUCH my internet or I become really mean and nasty.

This journaling was done with a base of pan pastel in dark grey.  Then I added a bit of purple with some oil pastels. I added some washi tape, some letters from my stash.  The images were colored with my copics and the sword with some wink of Luna.

I'm entering this little journaling in the following challenges:

  1. Crafting when we can challenges - Use washi tape
  2. 613 Avenue create - Anything goes
  3. Dream in darkness - Anything goes
  4. Left of center challenges - stitching real or faux - I went with LOC :)
That's it for this post!  Still one more so please do come back!!!  And don't forget to enter my giveaway here.

Recycle - The east wind

Hello everyone!!!  It's time for a new challenge over at The east wind.  This time our challenge is about recycling!

The image that I used for this little postcard is Cheif.

You can see my process in the little video here.



Here's what it turned up like.  I used some stamping using some stamps from my stash.  The sentiment is from Tim Holtz.  The image was colored with my copics and then fussy cut.

I'm entering this little postcard in the following challenges:

  1. We love 2 create - Anything goes mixed media
  2. a bit more time to craft - Anything goes
  3. 2 creative chicks - Anything goes
  4. Just keep on creating - anything goes

Oddball midway post March

Hello everyone!  It's already time for the midway post of Oddball for the Facebook anything goes challenge with an Oddball image.

I have been having different issues recently and I wanted to art journal about it!  This time it's all about earlier this month when I reformated the little sd card where I save my digis.  Why you will ask?!? because I was taping a video and it didn't recognize it and asked me to reformat... and me?!? I didn't think about it and just did it and realized after that it was AWFUL that I had just deleted all my digis....

I was lucky I had saved but not all of them back in July 2015.... that's still a whole lot of digis lost.... and then a crafty friend suggested that I try to get them back with some special programs.  I did but they all lost their names and folders :( So now I have to find where they go... and rename them....

So this is the journal page about that!!!!  Using the fab image 288.

I used my distress paint wilted violet.  I added some stickers in the background and a little journaling tag from project life.  The edge in black is the left over from another projetc.

I'm entering this little journaling in the following challenges:

  1. Corrosive challenges - anything goes
  2. Crafting-with-friends - anything goes
  3. Pde linky party - anything goes
  4. Simply papercrafts for all occassions - anything goes
  5. Little miss muffet challenges - Anything goes
That's it for me for today!  Hope you have liked my little make for you.  Don't forget to enter my giveaway here.
