grunge love heart

Well.... here is my second make for That's Crafty
it's a teeny tiny canvas... around 2inch squared (give or take)
I love to use texture paste and get grungy and this canvas combines both.

Check out the That's Crafty blog to see how I made this little cheeky number.

Mini Art Journal Page

Hi everyone

So pleased to say that I'm guest designer over on the That's Crafty blog.  I must say That's Crafty is my go to online store or any store to be honest as they are few and far between in the flesh so to speak.

I've used some Carabelle Studios stamps to create this Art Journal page..... head over here to see how I created it.

love using this A6 size journal.... it's so much fun.
Thanks for visiting

Wizard me this

wow, we've had some challenging themes over the past couple of weeks. When Hazel told me about the wizard theme I did rack my brains for it. Pinterest is my go to place for images a lot these days. I know I didn't want to go down the obvious route eof Wizard of OZ (besides there's a WoO esq theme next week.) and so.... the quest for an image ensued and I ended up with this image of James Franco  that was used to advertise The Great and Powerful OZ

Thanks to Hazel for choosing this theme...
There's plenty of textured layers on this postcard

 I just love a little grunge!

Queen of Autumn

Hey guys....
i'm late blogging this... no excuses as I made this on Sunday!!
The theme is 'leaves' and Ive chosen to use autumnal leaves in my creation.  The lady is off a collage sheet from Art Tea Life on Etsy
You may not be able to tell on the picture but every one of these leaves is cut out by hand and built up.

Hi guys

This is my tag for the Go Tag Thursday theme of Go BOLD.... well now are bold colours the same as BRIGHT colours? That was my interpretation of it.

Windows of the Mind

this week's Take a Word is yellow. I'd seen a lot of yellow door images on pinterest but then I stumbled upon this building with lots of  windows.

this is a page in my mini A6 journal.

I love these vintage adverts though and this one has inspired my theme for Sunday Postcard Art this week.

here is my tag for Go Tag Thursday where the theme is book print.

I've used book pages on the background of my tag plus I stamped the flowers onto book pages before water colouring them.
