Good morning peeps.
Well I'm taking full advantage of my week off work with a bit of me time and crafty time too !
That was after the marathon housework session on Sunday...so with that out of the way I made this little card.
I love the simplicity of the Pure Innocence girls and the sentiments are always lovely too.
This one is * Fairy girl * colored with copics and Lyra pencils.
Coloured with Lyra polycolour pencils from Pencils4artsists..........yes I bought some a few weeks ago and dare I say LOVE them slightly more than Prismas, they blend better and the skin tones are great ! though there are more colours in the Prisma range..
Dorcas gives a great comparison between the two on her blog here
Well back to my sorting out, have a nice sunday everyone
Bleaughhhhhh...that's how I've been feeling since thursday with a 'orrible' sneezzy cold, always at a time when I'm my busiest mind you...how rude !!
So I thought I would share a little randomness today...have been creative ( before the lurgy landed) and shall share once I get my brain back and remember to actually take photos of the cards before I take them in to work lol....
So here are two photos of tattoos that I absolutely would have on my body if I was lucky enough ...I've toyed with idea of having one for ages but only get a REAL urge when I see art work of this standard and not just your run of the mill body art like pretty butterflies etc.....no disrespect to anyone if you have a butterfly tattoo :/
When I first saw this my jaw dropped...it is simply gorgeous !! By the amazing David Corden a tattoo of KuKula's amazing art who's work you can find here
and the second is a winner anyway cos it's Alice inspired ! This is by Jason Jacenko of 696 Ink Tattoos
Pretty amazing huh ?
My next little bit of randomness.....have any of you been watching The Bridge on BBC 4 ?
link here to BBC iplayer ...I've linked to episode one by the way in case you haven't......... it's one of a few brilliant Danish crime dramas..like The Killing ( the original of that was Danish but the Americans did a pretty good remake and Those who Kill....I love Crime dramas and although they are subtitled don't let that put you off....well worth a watch.
And finally whilst I was eating my breakfast in bed this morning .....believe me that happens rarely lol...I was catching up with last nights first episode of Planet Earth Live....here...... Awwwww those little bear cubs and the gremiln are so cute !
So hope fully back to normal tomorrow with a card to share, enjoy what's left of the Bank holiday...
Love Katy xx
Blimey another week gone ! This year is absolutely flying...cant believe we are heading into May already ?! Before you know it we'll be thinking about Christmas AGAIN lol...well for me that will start in June with Christmas in July at work....yikes !
Anyways I have been busy creating for work tonight...shall hopefully have pics to share with you tomorrow but in the meantime I wanted to share this lady's work here....Dorcas Designs is a blog I only fell upon last week, you know how it is one blog leads to another lol...well I was so impressed with Dorcas colouring skills with pencils ! She has some fantastic tutorials ...needless to say she is responsible for a purchase over the weekend of Lyra Rembrandt Polycolour pencils ! Sheesh like I really need any more but I HAVE to give them a go :)
Lastly....I don't know about you but when I'm crafting I have to have music on in the background so I thought I'd share a little of what I listen to ...........
I thought to get me back into the swing of things I'd enter a challenge...........so here are my entry's to this weeks challenge over at Mo Manning's challenge blog which this week is I seespots....I LOVE any spotty paper !!
This is one of the lovely toppers by Hobbyhouse....so no colouring as these are pre coloured toppers..fab for a quick card ! and such good value as you get multiple toppers per sheet.
Good Morning.......hope you are all enjoying some nice sunshine today ? It's a bright sunny day here in Yorkshire. I thought it may be nice to share more photos of what I've been making in my 7 month absence from Blogger lol, these are some of what I've uploaded to my Facebook over the past months.
I have a thing about toadstools and this Magnolia toadstool stamp has to be one of my favs !
I really enjoyed making this tent card with an aperture...the lamppost is by Kaisercraft.........
Okay so now we move from cards to Art Journaling......we were thrilled to have the lovely talented Kate Crane teach some classes at Samuel Taylors last year and this is one of my pages i made on the day in my Moleskin...a mixture of paints, papers, digital downloads, doodling and stamping...great fun !!
A little atc...........
There are more for me to share., I have to admit that I'm always forgetting to take photos of cards I make for display at work so I will have to take my camera in with me this week so I can share them here.
Enjoy what's left of the weekend...it goes way to quickly !!
Yayyyy back in the land of blogging...yet again it's been so long since I posted but I've missed popping my cards on here, not only is it lovely to hear from my blogging friends but also it's such a good way to record what you've made....I have still been creating ( mainly for work ) just not sharing here ( slapped wrists lol ) So I'm hoping to put that right today with a card I made today on my day off from work.
See this another reason for my lack of shares... my photos are hopeless ...i so need a new camera..this was taken on my phone and tweaked on Instagram..still pants but saving pennies for a decent camera one day!
