It's Digi Choosday Day - Week 47 - Anything Goes

Hello everybody             

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

Every week our challenge will be ‘ANYTHING GOES ’ but the design team will have their own challenge theme just to keep them on their toes, which this week it’s RED & GREEN/WINDOWS & DOORS.

As usual you can click on the Thumb Linkies below to be taken off to the Doodles website for all the collection details.

So I've made another card to add to my Christmas collection. But this time I've gone big to make an A4 size card using the wonderful Versatile Door Die out of Kraft card.

I've created a scene using elements and papers from the Festive Christmas collection and the Winnie in Winterland Collection.  Check out the red and green wallpaper and the carpet too.  Love love love the versatility of the papers from these collections.  I created the scene outside the window and then used snowflake acetate from Hunkydory to go over the top before glueing my die cut windows over the top.  I've added a sprig of mistletoe over the cosy fireside chair as the person who lives there is hoping he'll get lucky over the Christmas season.  Ha ha ha.  With touches of glitter here and there on the tree and the fire flames this is a really quick make from me and very one dimensional.  I've left a space on the bottom right of the card so I can personalise it when I work out who to send it to.

Here is my DT Inspiration for this week:

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…
