Will You Marry Me??

Hello everybody

Well I'm not asking you all if you would marry me (ha, ha, ha) because of course I'm married already, but I just thought I'd pop on to show you a card that I started making on Wednesday (check out my WOYWW post for this week for full details of my images) and finished on Friday.

I've used my Graph It's to colour the digis, which are available from POLKA DOODLES (Just click the linkies below for full details of the collection)

The lovely Work & Play Love Collection is full of pretty images that can be used for weddings, engagements, hen parties, and all love themes.  Full of coloured and black and white digis and pretty papers to match and co-ordinate.  Not only that it has some fab shaped cards and templates which are a little bit different from the norm.

I've used the circle stepper card to make the Will You Marry Me card and the Scrabble Tiles in shades of pink, cream and white from the collection.  And the question mark I've stamped myself on one of the extra blank Scrabble Tiles in the collection.  The other embellishments on the card are paper flowers, red spots using Liquid Pearls and the heart die which I've embossed with WOW powder.

Here is my crafty make:

These are the ingredients I have used:

  • Digi images from the Work & Play Love Collection
  • Circle Stepper template and paper from the same collection
  • Scrabble Tiles from the same collection
  • Liquid Pearls - Garnet
  • WOW Powder - Opaque Pastel Pink
  • Perfect Medium
  • Paper flowers in pinks and white
  • Graph It White Shaker Pen (for dots on girl's clothing)
  • Heart Die - X Cut - Floral Filigree Heart

Coloured with Graph It pens as follows: 

Girl - Dress, Bow & Shoes - 5250, 5260, 5280
          Hair - 3140, 3150, 3180, 3190 
          Skin - 4115, 4145, 4150, 4170, 6150
Boy - Suit - 9501, 9502, 9503, 9505
          Rose - 5250
          Shoes & Tie - 1270, 3150
          Skin - 4115, 4145, 4150, 4170, 6150

Thank you for looking.

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…
