Do-Al(1) Kreatives - Spring/Easter

Wow so it is March already and time for the next Do-Al(1) Kreatives challenge.  This months themes are around Spring and Easter.  My inspiration piece is related to Spring with a lovely Fairy digi stamp from this months sponsor Digi4Joy

I have used Reno Alcohol Markers to colour my fairy.

Southern Girls Challenge 'Nature'

Team Lou is focusing on 'Nature' this time round, so I thought I'd do my own kind of spin on it.  I'm not normally a flowery kinda girl but this kind of flower well yeah I like it!

As I said I thought I'd do something a bit different - this is water colour on canvas. I like to think of them as funky flowers, or depending on how some of them turn out freaky flowers!

So the idea here is to obviously paint the flowers on using water colour and then outline everything that you see.  Each person see's things differently too which is the great thing about it.  Here's a peek at what an area can look like before the outline and after.

Because it's water colour you can control the depth of colour.  It would look great as a layout background too - Just remember to first apply some clear gesso to your paper.

Do-Al(1) Kreatives February 2018

Welcome back it's that time again - yes another challenge!!!
This months challenge theme is party sponsored by Crafty Ribbons.  I took the theme of party and kinda went in the direction of invitation meets surprise. 

Here's what I came up with - hope you like it!

When I think about a party, even though I've never had one I think of a surprise party.  And so here the surprise is hidden on the inside. 

I used a resist pattern paper and then added some Heidi Swapp shine to it, I love the way that it sparkles!
Happy crafting everyone.

Southern Girls Challenge - Circular embellies

Hi there and welcome!  So today is my first post as a new Design team member over at the Southern Girls Challenge - I'm very excited to be on the team.

Ok, so the theme of this challenge is about circular embellishments....sequins, buttons, flair etc if you can think of it then it applies.  I couldn't help myself so I went with some spotted paper's circular so it counts right lol

Aren't kids just adorable when they are asleep!  This photo was taken after a rather restless night of sharing an inflatable bed with my daughter...the girl is a wriggler!

I bought the paper collection (Prima Rose Quartz) back in July 20107 - I just loved it and it's romantic/dreamy feel.  I had no plans or any ideas what I was going to do with it until this challenge came about, and I remembered about the page with the circles...and so it all began.
Anyway I liked the way that the circles kinda looked like thought bubbles like you see in cartoons lol.  As my photo is darkish I w…
