It's Digi Choosday - Ladies Ladies Ladies - Week 9

Hello everybody             

It’s Digi Choosday day again. 

Hope you’re ready to enter another Digi Choosday Challenge.

This week our challenge is  ‘LADIES LADIES LADIES’.
Now my mum loves pink and loves owls too so for me there was no other choice for my make this week but the Twiggy & Toots collection.  But I tried something new...  I made a book fold card and you can see in my pictures how the inside and outside looks.  I will be doing a tutorial of how to make this type of card very soon so watch this space.  Everything you can see on the make except for the glitter (obviously) and the twine and lace can be found on the collection...  the designer sheets formed the basis of the card front and the papers and embellies and the alphabet on the inside as well.  Hope you like it.
Full details of what I’ve used can be found in the Thumb Linkies below and my ingredient list.
But before I go onto what I've made for inspiration this week, have you seen the brand new collection available on CD and download packages on the webby.  She's called WINNIE SUGAR SPRINKLES and is an uber cute special little girl with a spring time feel to her with a collection of designer papers and embellies and everything to go with her to make all your Mother's Day, Springtime and makes for your friends and female members of the family.  You can see her right here:

Here is my make:

These are the ingredients I have used for my make:
White card
Pink Lace
Ultimate Graphic paper
Pinflair Silicone Gel
Pink & White Twine
Memento Ink (Angel Pink)
Ice Stickles Glitter Glue

I’m excited to see your makes for this week’s challenge.  Perhaps you could choose to create a card, a fab piece of d├ęcor 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 THE COLOUR GREEN AND/OR NATURE  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!!!    

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…
