Art Journal Saturday

 Hooray figured out how to get my photos uploaded-go me lol-but no idea how to get  the digi images and pics I lost back -lost my watermark too! Anyway finally here is my journal page for the Smash Your Stash monthly journal page with Vicki so hope you will go over and check out her brilliant journal page too.

The theme was --buttons/sequins/gems--

now I may be alone in admitting this ---but---I have no sequins lol so buttons and gems it was.

The background was a mix of watercolour background and watercoloured flowers/a craft mag freebie scripy stamp and a sentiment from I think a Chocolate Baroque set bought off a FB sale page,buttons and gems are from stash.

Little Scottie Dog

 We have a new ATG challenge at TTCRD and as we are sponsored by All Dressed Up with a prize of two images for the winner. I chose the cute image Little Scottie Dog goodness knows why because I am rubbish at colouring fur so opted to leave the image white and added some slight shading with a grey so was happy with that and added colour to the rest with  promarkers and added glossy accents on nose/eyes and flowers.

I made another little book fold card with twine and little flower from stash,stitched square dies from The Works.

Lilli Rain Designs

 MOrning and I have a GDT project to share for Lilli Rain Designs.I was given the beautiful

 Emily-Rose collection.


I made another book fold card with an added extra page to make like a little photo album.

Everything is from the collection except photo corners/lace/peel off Dragonfly /twine/hessian and ribbon which were from my stash.

Looking back I wish I had put one girls image on one side with the roses on the other instead of both together ! These are such beautiful images ans papers to work with and please check out the rest of the beautiful collections.

Flip Flop Mini Hanging

 I made this using a Tutorial from Toni Darroch and I made it with a blogging friend in mind who loves hangings and plaques and who hasn't been feeling too well-I have now heard it has been  received and she loves it.Quite enjoyed making this I made the back piece from the back of a sketch pad so it was a bit sturdier than card,was meant to be an album but I added ribbon for a hanger.

It is nine and a half inches by six and a half-the papers are from The Works-everything else-ribbon/lace/dies wooden butterfly/plastic paper clips and images from stash-I did intend filling the pockets with fruit teas but after a little enquiry found she didn't like them so added a few images she could maybe use herself.
