WOYWW!!! Wednesday 1st April 2015

Hello crafters

Well, I don't know where today has gone and what the weather is like for you, but it's really blustery in my neck of the woods and just the day to sit inside and keep warm and toastie and do a bit of crafting.  This is what I've got on my desk today...

This little cutie digi is a new one in the Polka Doodles shop and is called Foraging.  She's available on the new Work & Play 10 Country Life collection.  I started colouring her at the weekend and I'm going to finish her off today.  I will be using my Graph It pens on Ultimate Graphic paper, which is really the best paper for use with these pens.

This little cutie is new in the shop too and is called Dog Walking.  Again, she's available on the Work & Play 10 Country Life collection.  Wonder what colour I should do the dog?  I'm really not sure what colour to do the girl's hair either, but I think brown and green outfit.  Very country!!

I've printed off some paper and some of the sentiments which are like little tags too.  Not sure what kind of shaped card to make yet.

And I've also started colouring this digi image too which is available on the Work & Play Music Collection.  I've printed off some great pink shades of paper too and some embellishments ready to make a music themed card.  I'm thinking of pink hair for this one.  What do you think?

Anyway, if you would like to buy these digis they are available through Polka Doodles or if you click on the little thumb linkies below you will be transported like magic through the website.

Take care

Bye for now

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…
