It's Digi Choosday Day - Week 25 - Tag It

Hello everybody     
Welcome to another Tuesday and another great challenge over at Digi Choosday.

This week’s challenge is ‘Tag It’.

I love making tags because they can be elaborately or simply decorated and it gives you a chance to use lots of the little embellishments you may have lying around in your craft room. 

I’ve decided to use the Dollie Goes East collection and have used three of the coloured digis which I’ve resized in a graphics package and printed out and then used some of the lovely papers available on the collection with the flowers which I’ve resized as well to go onto some Kraft Card tags and finished them off with glitter, gems and ribbon and lace.  I’ve made these three tags so that they can be used as cards so I printed off three different envelopes (also on the collection) and they will be just great for the tags and are just the right size too.

Here is my crafty make this week:

These are the ingredients I have used:

  • 3 x Ink Essentials Kraft Tags
  • 3 coloured digis from the Dollie East Collection (see thumb linky below for details)
  • Papers from the Dollie East collection (see thumb linky below for details)
  • Flowers and sentiments from the Dollie East Collection (see thumb linky below for details)
  • Graphic paper (for printing  the image/papers) (see thumb linky below for details)
  • Pinflair Glue Gel
  • Dew Drop Brilliance Ink in Pearlescent Thyme for the edges of the lace and images etc.
  • Santoro adhesive pearls in different colours and sizes
  • Assorted ribbons and lace from my stash
  • Icicle Stickles Glitter Glue
Not only can you get the coloured digis on the collection but they are available in black and white too and if you didn't want the whole collection (Why ever not???) then you can by single digis just HERE as well ready for you to colour.

I can’t wait to see your creations this week.

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 not only can you win a fabulous prize if you are in the top 3/random prize winner but you can also grab your discount code.  How fab is that?  The discount code only lasts for a short amount of time so you’d better head off over there right now to grab it. 

Why not join in our Facebook groups as well.  Just search for Digi Choosday and Polka Doodles Crafting and ask to join the groups to join in all the fun.  It’s a great community group to join in with and show off your Polka Doodles makes.  There’s always one of the Design Team around to have a natter with and offer guidance and inspiration, so don’t be shy….head on over there right now!!!    

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…
