Octavia Moonfly Washing Day

Hello everybody

Another fast week has gone by and plenty of crafting been had in my little corner of the world in my lovely pink craft room.

I've done lots of colouring this week and have some images I'm going to make into cards this week but more on that on Wednesday in my forthcoming WOYWW.

A few weeks ago I coloured up a few of the new Octavia Moonfly digis from POLKA DOODLES and I've made cards with all of the black and white digis except this last one which is called Octavia Moonfly Washing Day.

I've coloured her using my Graph It pens which are my favourite favourite favourite colouring medium at the moment.  Do you think I love them?  Ha ha ha.  Well since I joined the Kit & Clowder colouring classes I think my colouring has improved no ends.  If you'd like further details of the classes then just click on the Kit & Clowder logo in the tabs at the side of the blog posts.  I'm half way through the skin and hair classes with the clothing and animals classes just ready and waiting for me to start.  I'm not rushing the classes as I want to take in all the information as best as I can.  I do try to do at least one hour a week on the classes however have been lagging behind this past few weeks while I concentrate on other things.

Anyway this is the image I've coloured and the card I've made with her:

I wish you could see her super sparkly wings but daylight photos don't show them to their full sparkly potential.

Here are the ingredients I have used:

  • 8x8 card blank
  • Papers and butterflies and sentiment and digi of Octavia from the Octavia Moonfly Big Kahuna bundle digi download but the digi is available as a single download here and the papers are available on different bundles too.  I used my Do Crafts Digital Designer to merge the papers.
  • Pinflair Glue Gel for the decoupaged butterflies
  • Glossy accents and Glamour Dust (Crystal) for the wings
  • Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Tumbled Glass for the edging of the sentiment
  • 3 faux pearls
  • Ultimate Graphic paper for the image

I coloured Octavia using the following Graph It pens 

  • Skin - 4115, 4145, 4155, 4170, 6150
  • Lips - 5245
  • Hair - 3140, 3150, 3160, 3180, 3190
  • Clothes - 7125, 7175, 7210, 7180, 7165
  • Wings - 7105
  • Flowers - 1180, 2110
  • Wash Basket - 9100, 9101, 9102, 7125, 7165
  • Washing Line - 3255, 3230

Hope you have enjoyed looking at my Sunday creation.

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…

It's Digi Choosday Day - Week 4 - In Bloom

Hello everybody             
It’s Digi Choosday day again. These Tuesdays definitely come round really fast!!
Hope you’re ready to enter another Digi Choosday Challenge.
This week our challenge is  ‘IN BLOOM’.
I love searching the internet for new things to make and also getting inspiration and as soon as I saw the craze for making teacup art I instantly knew that this week’s challenge would fit this project perfectly.  I had a teacup that had a wonderful soy candle in it and was wondering what I could make with the empty cup.  Here is a step by step picture tutorial of my make (with the exception of one ingredient which is magic and you'll have to scroll to the bottom of my blog post to find out what it is).  I resized and printed some of the flowers from the Eden Collection and put them to one side.  I gathered my ingredients...  cup and saucer, bird cage, toadstools and reindeer moss and then using the magic ingredient started to assemble my make.

I then added the flowers and…

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…
