zetti zentangle

this week is Anne's theme on SPA.... it's Zentangles/Doodles....

I'm not a zentangler, I just don't do it.... but I did come across these images from Hidden Vintage Studios that have 'zentangle' girls in it. So I've used those

textured background, rubons, paints, stamps, inks.

Adventures in Laying an egg

Good Easter Morning my lovelies

This week on Sunday Postcard Art our theme is Easter,
I used this image I've had in my printed out stash for a while.
I did want to go vintage but the ink in my printer has run out. (Typical!)
and so.... I've gone whimsical!

come over and join us!
we'd love to see you over there.

own your dreams Canvas step by step

Here's a canvas Ive made for ScrapUnlimited.... all the chipboard, flowers, brass and the face all came from there. It's a fantastic shop... go check it out!
I started with a canvas that I added some masking tape and some washi tape to
Next came some texture in the form of Crackle Paint and a Prima stencil

 I added all my bits and bobs to the canvas using texture paste as a glue
covered everything with gesso
and... decided I would use my Finnabair paints... however a couple of them I just couldn't open! lol
the canvas turned out way too pretty for me

 and so.... I grunged it up with some black paint and a TH stencil

and here it is... plus some close ups

Anyone for Spam?

I'm sure spam was the best friend of the modern housewife at some point in history!
And LOOK! This young lady's dream has come true of a new mixer!
The world is now her oyster
 She dreamt big and was rewarded

E= mc 2

This week's theme over on SPA was chosen by Marion, and it's Einstein.

And so I went on a search through the Pinterest archives to find a less well known image of Albert.... and I found this one with him and his sister .... more my style nice and vintage.

I love playing with layers and layers
