Have you heard - Karleigh Sue digis

Hello!  I'm here for my 2nd inspiration post of the month for Karleigh Sue and I had fun journaling again.  But this time just for the fun of it in a journal that I made some time ago and don't use enough!

Here is the make using the wonderful image Have you heard.


Since it's an homemade journal the pages are from the book itself.  And the background came together as an accident because I had put too much brushos on the page on the other side.  When I closed the book to try to absorb some of it this is what happened :)  Love it when the background makes itself!  I use some prima metallic chalk edger in gold.

The image was colored with my copics.  Hope you like it!!!

I'm entering this in the following challenges:

  1. Snarky stampers - N is for not a card
  2. Crafting in a beautiful mess - Anything goes
  3. Art by miran challenge - Anything goes
  4. 2 crafty girls challenges - Anything goes
  5. Crafty-girls-creations - Anything goes

Daisy April RSD - Mixed media junk journal cover

Hello!  It's Tuesday and it was a fabulous long weekend here!!!  Just GORGEOUS and I actually was able to go in the pool yesterday which is pretty amazing because it's really really early in the season and we only got it fully working on Saturday... so yeah all good

I'm here to share with you what I made as my cover for a new junk journal for a friend.  I'm trying to make her happy and give her something to look at when she's not feeling well.

The great image that I used is from Rick St-Dennis and it's called April Daisy

You can see the making of the journal cover here
I had a lot of fun coloring this image with my copics.  The buttons were colored with wink by stella and then I used my gelly roll pen on it.

The stencils that I used are from Megan Suarez ( you can find them on etsy)  I used a little tissue paper from a shoe box.  The background of the sentiment is from a spellbinder die and I used a little bow colored with my copics.  The sentiment was found online.

Prince Tribute - Karleigh Sue

While I was in Greece the world lost a great artist.  And at the time I wasn't able to express how sad I was with this loss.

Prince meant so much to me.  My teenage years were marked with his singing and of course my dancing... not that I danced all that well but I thought so at the time.

Anyway when I saw this fabulous digi from Karleigh Sue I knew that I totally HAD to play with it for this tribute.

I wanted to have some of the words of one of his song as the sentiment on this... but at the same time the album Purple Rain with that song was just my 1st thought... but the song didn't fit however "When doves cry".


I colored the image with my copics.  The background was made with some deli paper that I painted purple then I did some dendritic print on it with white paint and tore those out.  I added some ribbon as well as a spellbinder diecut.  I used some prima chalk paint on the side.

I'm entering this layout in the following challenges:

  1. Brown sugar challenge - anything goes
  2. Crafting-with-friends - Anything goes
  3. Crafty catz weekly challenge - Anything goes
  4. Simply papercrafts for all occassions - anything goes
  5. Crafty-girls-creations - Anything goes

Destiny Tinman - Fairy Ink post

Destiny Tinman was my inspiration for the sentiment that was ideal for a postcard to send to a friend.
I have a friend who was in need of some pick me up!  So I thought this would be the perfect postcard to cheer her up!  And I'm very happy to report that it did work.  And how easy is it to make a little postcard like this when you have a great image to work with and just some recycled material.  
Of course I'm French.... so I messed up the saying... should have said Tin-king of you... and not Thin-king of you... oh well I'm sure that was also part of what cheered my friend up lol
I have made a little video to share with you the process of this in case you want to do something similar and this one was a SUPER fast make so you have no reason not to try this out.

And here's the actual little postcard that I made.

The image was colored with my copics.  I fussy cut her out.  The background was simply some deli paper that I use as the cover sheets to my desk when I work.  They become covered with yummy paints and work fantastically for this type of fast little project.  I handwrote the sentiment and then fussy cut it and edged it with some Faber Castell pen.  The edge of the postcard was also edge with this.  I finished it off with some little dots all around.
I hope you will be checking out this new image and that you will be inspired to send some mail to your friends! 

I'm entering this in the following challenges:

  1. Fab n funky challenges - No Designer paper - it's all mine :)  drop wax paper!!!  see video
  2. Inspiration destination challenge blog - anything goes
  3. The sisterhood of crafters - No designer paper

Oddball NEW RELEASE part 2

I hope you saw the post part one on my blog (you can see it here). The new release from Oddball art is just FABULOUS.  I'm doing a 2 part blog post!  For this 2nd part I'm using Image 308!!! I just adore owls and so I couldn't resist playing with those!  You will want to check out the FB group for all the wonderful makes that the DT team have done.  They will inspire you for SURE.

For this I made a card for my journaling out of the box.  It's using a cereal box cardboard.  This one had been used as a wipe out for the left over paints that I had while making other projects.  I also have a part of stencil showing through.

Since I wanted the rest of the paint that was already on this to show through I used silk paint on top.  It's transluscent but does cover the parts that were white.  I added a little yellow mesh, some cork decorations stickers (found at the dollar store).  I fussy cut the owl which were colored using my new peerless watercolor, cosmic shimmer watercolor and finally some distress pens.  I haven't used those in a while so it was fun.  I finished them off with some googly eyes :)

The sentiment was something that I found on google and wrote on a word document using some fun font that I had.  I used my prima chalk rusty bucket ink to edge the sentiement.  I edge the card with my sharpie in brown and used the black sharpie to highlight the embellishments.

I'm entering this in the following challenges:

  1. Left of center challenges - theme is witch but I'm entering this as LOC
  2. Open-minded crafting fun - favorite technique - I just ADORE doing mixed media it's really freeing and having a page that is started that you finish this way is so much fun!  Hope you like it too!
  3. A bit more time to craft - Anything goes
  4. 613 Avenue Create - Anything goes
  5. Create and Inspire challenge - Anything goes
That's it for today!!!  It sure was a BUSY day!!!  Have a wonderful Sunday everyone!!!

Scribbles Challenge - Midway point - A little note to BUG you

Wow time sure goes by FAST!!!  It's already May 1st and that means the midway point of the challenge going on over at Scribbles designs challenge.  And this month it was all about bugs!  Fairly easy when you think bumble bees, butterflies, ladybug, etc are all eligible.

For my midway post I decided to do a little journaling out of the box you can see my series on those on my Youtube channel.  This one however was not taped.  The little playing cards that I use to make those are 3x3 inches.

The image that I used this time is Heart Tulips.  I colored this with my tri tone coloring pencils.  I fussy cut the image and seperated the little bumble bee because the image was not going to fit here otherwise.

The background was all made with some left over paints and some leftover stamping (I use some of my little cards to clean out my stamps and it was perfect for this background).  I used my liquitex medium to glue this on and the sentiment is from a magazine cut out.  The edge of the little journaling card was edge with my Faber Castel pit pen.  I also used some book paper on the background layer.

Hope you are inspired to try doing something like this.  Super easy and a small size if you are intimidated with mixed media :)

I'm entering this little journaling card in the following challenges:
  1. Crafting in a beautiful mess - Anything goes
  2. Crafting-with-friends - Anything goes
  3. Wordart wednesday - Family friendly - Anything goes
  4. Moo-mania - Floral
That's it for this post!  One more on the way.
