It's Digi Choosday - Week 24 - For A Male

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

This week our challenge is  ‘FOR A MALE ’.

Full details of what I’ve used can be found in the Thumb Linkies below.

But as this week is a male challenge and it’s Father’s Day in the UK next Sunday I’ve decided to make my card for my dad.  He’s a lovely man and deserves to be treated to something special that’s handmade just for him….so of course Polkadoodles digis fit the bill exactly!!!  I’ve made an 8x8 card by using the Sticks & Bones collection.  I used one of the background scenes and then layered one of the frames over the top and resized it and cut the centre out and then using one of the character digis I’ve decoupaged him in a few layers and then mounted on the frame together with using one of the many alphabets on the collection to spell out the word ‘DAD’ and decoupaged that and then finally added the pterodactyl decoupage and some palm trees.  I edged the frame and the scene with some Dew Drop Versa Magic Ink in Jumbo Java and used silicone glue for the decoupage.

I hope you’ve had chance to see the wonderful makes we’ve been sharing on Facebook using the new Winnie collection…WINNIE IN WONDERLAND.  This collection is absolutely fantastic and is based on the Alice stories by Lewis Carroll and is  full of lots of papers, digis in black and white and colour, embellies, tags and sentiments and can be bought as a full collection on download and CD and also in little collections too right HERE.  There’s something for every price pocket.  The papers are the best I’ve ever seen!!!!
Winnie in Wonderland (CDrom) Printable Digital card/scrap collection

Daisydays - Stamp ME clear stamp set & CD-rom Daisydays - Stamp ME clear stamp set & CD-rom

AND not forgetting the two new STAMP ME collections called Daisy Days and Summertime.  You can get them here….  They are fabulous and unique in their design as now using the easy to use overlays YOU CAN stamp….beginners through to the more experienced crafters/stampers will love the uses of these stamps.

Here is my make for this week’s challenge:

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…
