It's Digi Choosday - Flower Frenzy - Week 12

Hello everybody             
It’s Digi Choosday day again.  Hope you’re ready to enter another Digi Choosday Challenge.

This week our challenge is  ‘FLORAL FRENZY’ but before I get onto my design team inspiration I hope you managed to catch our very own wonderfully talented Nikky on Create & Craft on Friday.  If you didn't there's still time for you to catch her show by clicking HERE and searching through the past seven days' shows. 
Did you see the two brand new CDs and download collections and two new stamp soup collections. They are available on pre-order on the website but you'll have to hurry cos they are selling out really really fast, as expected.

So for my challenge inspiration this week I've used the fabulous LILY BUG LOVE COLLECTION. 
Full details of what I’ve used can be found in the Thumb Linkies below and my ingredient list.
I've never made a box card so after a found a template that had a heart fold over piece at the front which I thought was a little different than just the plain square ones I've seen I thought I would give one a whirl.  I've now got a template and die cut for my Grand Calibur so will be making more of these box cards.
Here is my make:

Flowers, leaves, ladybirds, toadstools and sentiment from the Lily Bug Love Collection
Florist Wire
Wooden Ladybirds
Distress Ink – Tattered Rose
Template for the box card from the internet
Silicone Glue
Strong white card

I’m excited to see your makes for this week’s challenge.  Perhaps you could choose to create a card, a fab piece of décor or something else, but 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. 
And you’ve still got chance to enter our THINKING OF YOU challenge from last week, because all our challenges run for two weeks.  AND did you know you can now enter our Digi Choosday and Polkadoodles challenges if you don’t have a blog.  Full details can be found on our FB pages.  So head on over there now if you still want to be in with winning a prize!!
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!!!    
AND did you know we also have our very own dedicated Instagram account.  Click HERE to be taken over to the showcase of the design team’s excellent talent.
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…
