Who you are is completely up to you

I went to a class with the Artfull Crafts roadshow on Wednesday and had a good play with some mixed media products.  It inspired me again to get the canvas out and have a play with my own stash.  Here's what I managed to whip up.
I just love the vibrancy that this projects.

Friday Flashback

Sitting in the office today my mind has wandered a little...ok a lot!  Thoughts have roamed from nagging the husband to finish off my craft room over the weekend, to 'oh I must make some father's day cards'....and then landed at one point to remembering some projects from the past.  So I thought I'd re-live some of those moments today!  Enjoy :)

Paper Smooches Digi Stamps - attempt 1

As I was looking through Facebook the other day a notification from Paper Smooches popped up for a Guest Designer for a month - curious I went and had a look as I have often looked at the Paper Smooches stamps and even own some of their dies.  Great value products by the way :)  Anyway....I thought why not give it a go, nothing to lose and some great cards to gain.  I've never used Digi Stamps before and the site offered some for free, so I jumped on in boots n all.
I also just wanted to say that I don't have all the latest and greatest of colouring products so I think that this is a good display to showcase that you can produce some great images with only a few resources at your disposal.  Hope you enjoy!
One of the great things that I found with the digi stamps is that I could re-size it.

I used some watercolour paint for the background and added some stamped stars, lightly embossing them in silver for a bit of shimmer.  I coloured the little critter using Reno Alcohol pens.

Here I wanted to really make the most of the stamp so I used for the entire background, adding again just a little bit of shimmer with some glitter.

It's Finally Happening!!!!

After so so so long of suggesting, asking - begging - pleading I've finally convinced the kids (and the hubby) to share our wee room off the lounge!  It's only a small space but somehow over the years we had managed to cram so many toys into it.  So my weekend was spent cleaning this room out and transforming it into a shared space.  While it's not yet totally complete I'm just happy that I have a desk to work at yay!!!!!  Creations here I come!!!!
So I forgot to take a true photo - but this one is
 about 3/4 way through my clean out.
And......I at least have my desk and essentials in there! 
 Still a shelf to go up and the TV.  So happy :)
