It's Digi Choosday Day - Week 28 - Use An Old Collection

Hello everybody             

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

Before I show you what I've made this week I thought I'd just let you know (if you don't already know) that there are two new (absolutely stunning!!!) collections on pre-order from the SHOP that will be shown on Create & Craft this Friday the 17th of July at 10am.  So I do hope that you'll be able to join Nikky so see the absolutely super samples that the design team have created to showcase the two new collections.  Hope you get the chance to tune in.  But here are the collections in their super Christmassy glory!!

First up there's Twiggy & Toots Festive Fun

And then there's the Picknix 3 Nordic Winter

So now onto this week's challenge which is ‘Use An Old Collection’.

There are some absolutely fabby-do-dah collections in the Polka Doodles shop and it was really hard trying to choose one (as usual) but this week as schools will be breaking up in the next week or so I’ve decided to use the teacher digi and the matching papers, embellishments and sentiments from Work & Play Collection 3 (which is available as a CD, a Download collection, and the teacher digi is available singly in black and white too) to make a teacher thank you card.

Here is my crafty make this week:

These are the ingredients I have used:

  • Stepper card cut from a template on the Do Crafts Digital Designer
  • Pinflair Glue Gel
  • 3 coloured digis of the teacher from Work & Play 3 and the sentiments and paper and embellishments. (Click on the Thumb Linky below to be whooshed off to the shop)

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!!!    
If you would like a Guest Design Team Position with us as well, just have a look at our blog posts and you’ll find the details.  Good luck if you’re entering!!!


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!!!

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…
