12 Tags of 2012 - May

Well after waiting very patiently for Mr Holtz to upload this months tag....I have finished! Yey!

I really enjoyed making this tag although in my heavily pregnant hormonal state I nearly threw my sewing machine out of the window as it just wasn't playing...(I forgot to knock the catch up so i could redo the bobbin!!)...!!!

So here it is!

Happy Inking!!

Well I bought some dylusions a few weeks ago and thought it was time to test them out.  After a few false starts and muck ups I finally produced two journal pages!! hoorrayyy!!

I really enjoyed playing with these and got a little more confident on the second one as I actually doodled a little bit!!!

Happy Inking!!

New additions!!!

Well i have invested in..............DYLUSIONS!! yey! I decided I'm not going to have much time to actually make stuff and get too inky whilst on maternity so I'm going to try my hand at Art Journalling.  With all the excess hormones rolling about in my body the outcomes should be rather fun!!

I've got inks, stencils and stamps!  I also invested in my new little journal and some posca pens and am ready to go!! woohooo!!

But I have been making too!

I bought an egg house from the local charity shop for a couple of squids (pounds) and thought...hmmm...what can I do with this! I've been looking for somewhere to store my paint dabbers and perfect pearl mists and this looked perfect.

So i gave it a coat of white acrylic, added some Tim holtz stamps to the side, tissue tape and then some ink and idea-ology.  The inside shelf had holes in for the eggs so I covered the shelf with manilla card, white paint dabber and some tissue tape and voila....my new little home for my odds and ends!

I have a stash of things to alter....most of which have got as far as being coated in white picket fence stain but hopefully I will be able to do some more.

This little bump is due out at anytime but I finish work this week so I'm hoping (fingers crossed!!!) that she lets me have a little 'me time' before she makes her appearance and I might get a chance to play some more!!

Happy Inking!

Canvas Madness!

I recently (I say recently, but I think it was back in March now!!) went to a canvas workshop with Kaz Hall.  We made a fabtabulous canvas and since then I have been addicted to making them and now want to decorate my whoooolllllleeee house with them!  So here is the one I made on Kaz's workshop....

I love the Broken china stain on the craft resist paper as it comes out a teal colour, which is my favourite colour and think Mr Tim Holtz should have brought a teal colour out!

So after doing this I decided to make my own....

ta daaaaa!!!!!

Happy Inking
