Sitting Annalise

Make it Colourful has an interesting challenge for you today! We want to see you color your image without the lines!! Well, okay, you can have lines but they have to be very, very light. ;D I chose to color Sitting Annalise and the Flower Swing from Make it Crafty for another page in the mini journal.

Coloring with no lines is actually harder than I thought and I probably wasn't in the exact frame of mind to take on this challenge. It was a good thing I started with the girl because by time I got to the swing I just sort of scribbled on the colors. Maybe next time I'll be in the mood but for now.... "I like my lines, thank you very much!" LOL

However, you don't want to miss out returning to the challenge blog and checking out what all the other ladies have done - they all did a wonderful job and there is so much inspiration over there! So pull out your lucky token, hold on tight, and give this a try - it's one that you don't want to miss out on. :D

The challenge blog has a new gallery too ... come check it out and upload your challenge project!

Monster Mission

Welcome to another fortnight challenge with Little Miss Muffet Challenges! This time we're challenging you to create a project using Blues, Purples and Greens. Yes, we want to see all those cool colors in your project ... and the more the better! :D

For my project I used Monster Mission from Little Miss Muffet Stamps and create a page in my small journal book. When I started the page I didn't have any plan and searched for anything blue, green or purple. When I found it then I used it until it looked finished. :D Needless to say, it was a fast page to put together.

I'd like to enter into the following challenges:

Paper Pretties Challenge #31 - Anything but a card
The Paper Shelter Challenge #29 - Anything goes
Creative Card Crew Challenge - Anything goes
Daisy Doodles Creative Challenge #41 - Anything goes
Hear Song Inspirations Challenge #13 - Anything goes

Update: I was featured on She's Gone Digital Art Linking Journals!

Steampunk Rio

Here's some fun news! I've been spotlighted at Simply Betty Stamps today and I made this project for that very special reason. Head on over and check out the post then don't forget to leave some love for Betty. ;D

For my project I used Steampunk Rio from Simply Betty Stamps and paired her with the Clockworks House from Make it Crafty. I chose to go with an easy brown and blue combination and started off picking paper from my scrap stash. Because the Clockworks House looks like it's small enough for a fairy... I added chipboard wings to Rio.

I was on the look out of the meshy metal stuff at the scrapbook store (later I found out it was called Punchinella Sequin Waste Ribbon) but instead I was only able to find some burlap ribbon. However, it worked out nicely on this page too. ;D I finished up the page with more chippies and button brads.

There is a revolutionary new technique that was used on this page and I'm sure everyone is going to want to try it... at least everyone under the age of two! LOL My daughter calls it art but I called it "Agg, what did you do!!" She scribbled on the background image with E53 and over the character image with a pencil!! I was able to salvage Rio but the background just had to stay as is - luckily the color wasn't too dark. ;D
