It's Digi Choosday Day - Anything Goes - Week 14

Hello everybody             
It’s Digi Choosday day again. 
Hope you’re ready to enter another Digi Choosday Challenge.
This week our challenge is  ‘ANYTHING GOES ’. 
But before I get onto this week's inspiration post, there's a new collection available from Polkadoodles which was released at the weekend called Winnie Fruit Punch.... she's equally as adorable as Winnie Sugar Sprinkles.  You can follow her adventures shopping and climbing trees and ballet dancing amongst many other activities this time, all with co-ordinating papers, sentiments, word art, flowers and embellies...and black and white digis (10 of them) and coloured digis too (10 of them).  You can get your collection HERE

Now onto my make for this week's challenge. 
A couple of weeks ago one of my friends turned 21 and I needed a very special card to make this momentous occasion and when the Lavender Tea and Lemonade Fizz collections came out I just knew that these collections matched her personality completely.  I decided after some deliberation to use the Lemonade Fizz collection and printed the background paper with the photograph of my friend using a graphics package and then layered the flowers and bees onto them and then printed extras of the flowers and bees and decoupaged them.
Full details of what I’ve used can be found in the Thumb Linkies below and my ingredient list

Here is my make:

Lemonade Fizz Collection for the flowers and papers and bees
Silicone Glue for the decoupage
Picture of my friend
8x8 card
Pigma Micron Pen 0.4 black for the faux stitches
Glitter on the bee wings

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  SPRING COLOURS 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!!

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…
