It's Digi Choosday Day - Week 4 - Cool Blues

Hello everybody

Welcome to another  DIGI CHOOSDAY challenge.  This week’s challenge is ‘Cool Blue.’

And just like last week I've opted to use one of the images from the Winston Deluxe Collection called Etty Shy which I've coloured using the ‘dotting’  technique with my Graph It pens, full details of the colours I've used for the bear can be seen below.  

The easel card has been made on my Do Crafts Designer using the papers from the Winston Collection and then I've resized the flower images on the Collection to make them smaller and cut them out to decoupage them, together with the paper ribbon, finishing the flowers off with some cute blue buttons. 

The ‘Happy Birthday’ scrabble tiles are from the brand spanking new CD collection ‘Work & Play 9 2XL Love’ available  HERE

Here is my crafty make:

These are the ingredients I have used:

  • White card for the Easel card
  • Assorted papers and digi image and flowers and paper bow from the WINSTON DELUXE COLLECTION
  • Stickles Glitter Glue (Waterfall) (available HERE)
  • Glossy Accents
  • Buttons
  • Graph It markers – 7125, 7140, 8260, blender pen

The DIGI CHOOSDAY blog comes out each Tuesday and you have a fortnight in which to get your entries into the challenge which has a different theme each week 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've been crafting.  We would love to see your creations, so what are you waiting for…. Get crafting!!  

And remember, it’s not just for cards, you can create ANYTHING you want from home d├ęcor to cards, just remember to follow the rules listed in the blog and keep to the theme for the week. 

Ooh, and if you pop over to the POLKA DOODLES BLOG you will see that at the moment we have a Design Team call and it is open to everybody who can fulfil the criteria listed on the blog post.  If you fancy a challenge and have the commitment and craftiness to offer Polka Doodles then please enter.

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…
