It's Digi Choosday Day - Week 49 - Xmas Decor

Hello everybody             

Welcome to yet another Tuesday and another Digi Choosday post.  The weeks are flying by aren’t they and it’ll soon be Christmas Day.  Have you got your decorations up?  Have you made any decorations?  Well this week the Design Team have all been making Christmas Decorations and so this week the challenge is ‘CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS’.

Well this year I took up a new hobby of bookfolding and took the opportunity to combine Nikky’s wonderful art work from the Twiggy & Toots Festive Fun collection which I resized to fit my project, and a book I’ve folded into a little house shape to make my decoration.  Please click on the Thumb Linkies below for full details of the collection (available on CD and download as well as individual black and white character digis)

These are the ingredients I have used:

  • Large paperback book
  • Circular Cake Board 25cm size
  • Christmas Snow Blanket from The Range
  • Art Glitter Faux Snow
  • Deco Art Snowtex
  • Pinflair Glue Gel
  • Ice Stickles Crystal Ice
  • Stickles Glitter Glue – Xmas Red

I’m excited to see all your Christmas Decorations this week 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 24 hours 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 Polkadoodles Crafting and The Pencil Case and the Inky Pinkies 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 Polkadoodles 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!!!

This is such a lovely table decoration and I particularly adore the legs of Santa on top of the 'chimney'. The embellishments are wonderful too. So far I've got a book - not sure what I'm going to make yet though :o). Thank you so much for entering the Crafty Calendar (Let it Snow) Challenge this month, lots of luck to you. Hugs Sue Pxxx DT.

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…
