It's Digi Choosday Day - Week 42 - Anything Goes

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 ’, as it will be every week.  So you’ve no excuse not to enter with your wonderful crafty creations.  But the design team will have their own challenge theme just to keep them on their toes, which this week it’s WINTER WISHES....because this week Digi Choosday is celebrating their third birthday and the bunting, cake and party music and of course fizz will be flowing wild and time flies.... third birthday, yes, third birthday !!!
Please come and join in with the monthly celebrations we are having on the Polkadoodles Facebook page where you can win some fab goodies.  Follow the Polkadoodles link below. 

Full details of what I’ve used can be found in the Thumb Linkies below which will take you right to the doodle web page.

So for my make this week I've gone back to two of the older collections...Festive Hollybobs Work & Play 5 Collection and Work & Play 9 Love & Kisses Collection.
to make an 8x8 card with the front flap turned down from corner to corner.  I've used the papers from the Festive Hollybobs collection and the coloured digi called Mailing A Letter which I've decoupaged in several layers.  The bow is also from the collection.  The scrabble tiles are from the Love & Kisses Collection but I've recoloured them using Serif Craft Artist and stuck them to the inside of the card.  I've used some faux glittering snow and some white faux string pearls along the edge to finish off the card and of course some mini pompoms in white for the top of the girl's hat and also a few snowballs in the corner of the card.

Here is my make for this week’s challenge:           

I’m excited to see your makes for this week’s challenge.  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…
