It's Digi Choosday - Week 48 - Traditional Christmas

Hello everybody       
Welcome to yet another Tuesday and another Digi Choosday post.  This week’s challenge is ‘TRADITIONAL CHRISTMAS’.

Merry Christmas everybody.  Can you believe it’s December already???  Hope you’ve started shopping and writing cards if you’ve made them.  If you’ve not started then there’s plenty of inspiration on the Digi Choosday blog this week.

Traditional Christmas for me means baubles, glitter, trees, mistletoe, poinsettias and lots of lovely colours of red, blue and green, so I’ve mixed up two collections for this week’s make.  I’ve been playing with the Colour Therapy Colouring Club download of Christmas baubles which I’ve coloured with glitter gel pens and used the embellishments and papers from the Picnix 3 Nordic Winter collection.  Full details via the Thumb Linkies below.

Here is my make:                                           

These are the ingredients I have used:

  • Ultimate Graphic paper
  • Papers, Trees and Poinsettias from Picknix 3 Nordic Winter
  • Colour Therapy Colouring Club 1A
  • Glittery Gel pens
  • Wink of Stella Glitter Gold
  • Ice Stickles Crystal Ice
  • Liquid pearls White Opal
  • Liquid pearls Garnet
  • Stickles Glitter Glue – Xmas Red
  • 8x8 card
  • Gold ribbon

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 24 hours so you’d better head off over there right now to grab it.

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…
