Thursday Journal with Neet

This week we are on purple, which is not a colour I use very much. I had to paint over an existing background with Dylusions purple paint to get a purple enough background.
I stamped and coloured the figures and added a quote. I had trouble stamping the leaves as the ink wouldn't dry.  What happened to blotting paper, has it disappeared off the planet !!

Go Tag Thursday -- Anything goes

The theme on Go Tag Thursday is anything goes.
Off on a course this afternoon, so a quick one as I'm not back until Friday, when I will be behind on next weeks as well. Having stamped the Lynne Perrella images I couldn't decide which ones to use, so made a double sided tag.
These will also conform to the Tag Tuesday theme which is Texture. They have ribbon, lace and flowers for texture..

Every Inchie Monday -- Tiger

It's the turn of the tiger this week on Every Inchie Monday. I drew the stampbord one and used some fabric and hand stitching for the fabric one. He does look a bit worn round the edges, today is even too hot for a tiger.

Thursday Journal with Neet

This week it's pink, and I have used a double page that I had already stencilled. I painted over it with the two Dylusion pinks. I used two of Tim Holtz dog die cuts and a Dylusions figure.
Again I have had to scan with my iPad and the colours plus the weather are a bit dull.

Go Tag Thursday -- Fruit

On Go Tag Thursday the theme is Fruit. I am so late with this, as this Thursday there will be another one to do. Where does the time go.
For my tag I used distress inks on the background and stamped the pears on a separate piece of card. I coloured them with Derwent intense crayons.


Every Inchie Monday -- Zebra

This week we are off to Africa, and the zebra. Not an easy one to sew and this is my second attempt, the first one looked as if it had overdone the weight watchers diet. The stampbord one is shrink plastic. The sewn one looks a bit blue, as I had to use my iPad to scan it as my two proper scanners are being naughty.



Tag Tuesday -- Texture

On Tag Tuesday it is my turn to host the next two weeks challenge. I have chosen texture, and anything that gives texture can be used.
For my first sample I cut out a tag from corrugated card and used gesso and texture paste to start off with. I then painted it with metallic acrylic paints. Plasterers scrim, ribbons were added, and on the top of these I used accent beads, buttons. friendly plastic and clay embellishments. To add some bling I used glitter texture paste through a stencil.




I have added some photos of our open gardens. We didn't have so many visitors this year, but well worth the effort for charity, the weather was not good for wandering round gardens.
 If I take any more, I'll put them on later.
