Pussy Kat Eye - recycled container

Hello!  It's Friday wooohooo so very glad it's been a long and tireing week and it will be for the next 2 more weeks....  Anyway Friday means that there's a new release over at Sandra Caldwell's etsy store  and for this one I got to play with the fabulous image Pussy Kat Eye. This was the perfect opportunity to recycle a little container to put the food of my new baby Sam.  I also figured I would introduce you to him in this video. Here is what it turned out like.  This started out as a tea container.  I used black gesso.  Some stenciling using some Heidi Swapp teal texture paste with a stencil and used as well some white texture paste with a Tim Holtz stencil.  I added some book paper and some homemade deli paper.  The sentiment was done in word. The image was colored with my copics and then I fussy cut it out. I'm entering this in the following challenges: As you like it challenge  - Favorite fur or feathers - well fur of course.  Love my new baby

Lil Bit here to create!

 Hello!!!!  There was soooo many release last week from Sandra Caldwell and this one was one of them.  This cutie is called Lil Bit and you can find it here . I used my very 1st homemade journal for this one.  And I was working on this while camping... so with very limited supplies.  The sentiment is from a magazine.  I used some sprays and got them to drip.  Then I stamped and did some doodling with my faber castel pens. I used copics to color this cute image and Chameleon pens as well.

Raggedy Rhonda

Happy Friday everyone!!!!  Hope you are all doing well!  I have a new release image from Sandra Caldwell and you can find the super image Raggedy Rhonda here . I did this spread while on vacation.  And I had lots of fun doing it!  I used one of my very 1st altered book journal!  I have been using this one for awhile and I'm very much hoping that I finish it soon!!!! The background was made using some stabilo pencils and then using water with them. I glued some pieceds of book pages and added some stenciling details using a Tim Holtz stencil.  I have used some washi tape as well and some stamps that I purchased used but still had not used. Here is a closer look at Rhonda!  I colored her with my copics. And then I fussy cut her out.  The sentiment is from my stash of magazine cut outs. I'm entering this journaling in the following challenges: Just-add-ink  - Stencils - I used a Tim Holtz one  Patties creations challenge  - anything goes with an image Cra

Over dressed pig on summer holiday

Hello!  I'm sharing with you today a fabulous new digi from Sandra Caldwell.  It's called over dressed pig and you can find it here . When I saw this guy it automatically made me think about the song I got to wear shades. I decided to make a tag out of it while I was camping.  The tag itself is made out of envelopes put together.  You can see the process for that in the video here . The background was made using stabilo pencils and then using water to spread them out.  I used some left over papers, a bit of trim and edged everything with a memento ink pad. Here is a closer look at the cute digi that I colored with my copics. And then fussy cut out. I'm entering this tag in the following challenges: Crafting by designs  - Anything goes Crafty creations challenges  - Anything goes Creative moments  - Anything goes option something funny - I think that fits :) Simon says stamp blog  - Add a sentiment Crafting from the heart challenge  - Anything goes

New release images from Sandra Caldwell

Hello everyone!  There's a brand new release over at Sandra Caldwell   and it's a double one because Sandra took a short break :) I had the chance to play with gift box kitty and that was just perfect to make a layout in my ABC journal to introduce the newest member of our family!  I still don't have it but should in a few days now. I have made a video of the process you can see it here: And here is what it looks like.  Since I was working in a book I didn't want to use too much wet media because the paper is not the best for that sort of application.  But I still did put a bit of dylusion paint down as my base.  I also used some archival ink to stamp and make marks. The cute image was colored with my copics and then fussy cut out.  Here is the 2nd image that I worked with. The video of that process will be shown on Sunday. This journaling was done with the super cute image BEST FRIENDS FOREVER!  And I used my envelope journal to make this.  I have bee
