It's Digi Choosday Day - Week 47 - Xmas Celebrations

Hello everybody

Well it’s Digi Choosday day and this week’s challenge is ‘Xmas Celebrations’. 

What would celebrations at Christmas be without a festive little sing along???

The choir digi from the Festive Hollybobs Work & Play 5  images fits the bill perfectly.

I printed the coloured image out four times and decoupaged it and matted and layered it onto red card.  I made a little box from the spotty blue and white paper from the download and created a little box for the decoupage with some snowy acetate and then cut the snowflake shapes and bow out on my Cuttlebug in white and the spotty paper.  The backing red and blue snowflake stripy paper and matching big snowflake paper are also from the download, as is the large poinsettia in the corner (again decoupaged in four layers).  I finished the card off with five red Card Candi in the corner.

Here is my crafty make.

These are the ingredients I have used:

  • 8 x 8 card blank
  • Red and blue card for matting and layering
  • Three sheets of paper printed from the Festive Hollybobs - Work & Play 5 download -(also available as a CD version HERE
  • Sentiment  Tag – Let It Snow from Festive Hollybobs Work & Play 5 download
  • Pinflair Glue for the decoupage elements
  • Glitter glue
  • Hunkydory Snowfall Acetate
  • Five red Card Candi
  • Tim Holt Distressing Tool used on the Let It Snow Sentiment Tag
  • Snowflakes and ribbon made from white card and spotty paper using Creative Expression Die Dotty 3D Itty Bitty Bows and Marianne and freebie die from Quick Cards magazine

The Digi Choosday blog comes out each Tuesday and there is always a theme and challenge for crafters out there and me and the other wonderfully creative team mates get to showcase crafty makes using Nikky’’s wonderful digi images available from Polka Doodles.

Hope you will join me and my other teamies each Tuesday to see what we’re up to. 

Pop back soon to see what else I've been creating. 

Take care

Yarn Dyeing

Hello everybody

Well I haven't done any yarn dyeing since the end of last summer and forgot about a lot of the stuff that I'd dyed, but since I've been working hard on revamping my craft room to organise it so it's more art and painting friendly, I've come across them all and as I hadn't shared any photos with you of my  dyeing for a while I thought I'd share them.

First up was a blank canvas knitted base that I bought as long ago as June 2015 from Woolfest.  The canvas is a long knitted piece of fabric with two separate ends so that you can dye it however you choose and then unravel it to make two identical balls of yarn.  I used a length of cling film on top of the work top and used Kool Aid to dye the canvas and then wrapped it up in cling film and put it in the microwave.  Once it had cooled I then rinsed it and popped it outdoors on the line to dry and then once dry I unravelled it into two equal and identical balls which are now waiting in my stash r…

Long time no post....

Hello everyone

Well I know I've not blogged for months and months, but I've been really busy and have been making the most of other social media platforms to chat with happy crafters and the like. 

But I'm back now and hopefully I should get to blogging maybe once a week or a couple of times a month.....who knows. 

Let me tell you what I've been up to whilst I've been absent from blogland.


1.  I had a big birthday in the summer and got a wonderful birthday present of a Townie bike and so spent every spare moment during the spring and summer (cos I got my present a little earlier than expected) taking in parks and other beautiful places and getting some fresh air and exercise and loved every minute of it.  But now that the nights are now darker earlier and winter is setting in I'm not able to get out and so she's been put to bed for a few months until the clocks go forward and the light nights come back.  So....hurry up winter and do one!!!

2.  Just…

Hi everyone 

Hope you've been keeping well since my last post. 
I've been attending art group still and learning new techniques as I go. 
I've done a few paintings since I shared my owl one, which I'll be sharing later this month, but here is my recent completed one from start to finish. I used watercolours from Royal Langnickel and water soluble oil pastels which were really cheap from The Works, fur texture created with KohINoor pencils and Posca white pen. Hope you like it. Here's some close ups and the finished project all framed up.

Starting to watercolour the background and the background and watercoloured bunny beginning to add detail  Close up of the detail using the Kohinoor pencils  Hello there.....just look at the texture on the fur.

 I achieved the background flowers by just dabbing a paint brush in multi colours and then dabbing them onto the paper after adding brush strokes of green for the stems and grass.  Boo......just look at my beautiful eyes.  a…
