Thank You Card


I'm filling in for a team mate over on the Stick It Down card team this month.


As the sketch artist I usually mentally make a card whilst doing the sketch, so I challenged myself not to make the exact same card as my original idea.  (Although, I may have a go at making that too, it was a watercolour rainbow with vellum clouds...)


Of course, I stuck with the rainbow theme because 'rainbow is the best colour!'

Supplies:  White card blank, alpha stickers from Basic Grey, OHTO Graphic Liner pen, Swiss Dot Ribbon from Crafty Ribbons, red backed tape.

I hope you can squeeze in time to take on this sketch and join us at Stick It Down!

let's be friends


This little cutie and his teddy bear reminded me I had the perfect flair stashed away...


It is from Feed Your Craft and says let's be friends.  A perfect match for the photo, I think you'll agree.

I kept it simple, black and white paper from Cocoa Vanilla and a handful of small embellishments, with blue thread and ink splats for a splash of colour. 

I think I'd feel a little guilty if I made all of my layouts this bare but I do love the white space!

Scraplifting Kaez Mum...


The SpeigelMom Scraps guest designer this month is Jen Gagne aka Kaez Mum.  Here is one of her layouts that I found particularly inspiring...


My take is just as colourful...


I used a tonne of Shimmerz products to colour my background and some cardstock which I ran through my cameo.  With my twelve flowers and colourful splodges in place I added a few sequins in matching colours and made of frame of journalling around the edge.

You can watch the process here...

Gingerbread Hugs


Crafty Ribbons have just released a new ribbon range - Gingerbread men for Christmas.  They are adorable!


Here is my first project with them.  They match the photo perfectly and I had so much fun with this one.  I drew up a cut file to match too.  You can grab that here.


I've added some lace and bias binding to the gingerbread ribbon and a tiny heart loop from the sentiment ribbon too.


Thanks for stopping by!

Keeping Cool


My cheeky little Herb may be gone but he's certainly not forgotten.  This layout is of him 'sharing' an ice lolly in the summer heat last year.


I was in the mood for lots of layers when making this one!  I've gone with a hot colour palette which also matches the lolly 'we' were eating.


And I've become a big fan of a tulle layer on my layouts.  It adds great texture but is very subtle - both things I love.



Thanks for stopping by!

Stick It Down





New sketches are up over at Stick It Down...


Here is my take on Lorraine's sketch:



Maybe I went a little off road but somethig was screaming make a rainbow at me!!


I've used 12x16 watercolour paper cut down to 12x12.  I used my Daniel Smith watercolour paints spashing around paint and water to encourage blooms and organic mixing.


I added a few puffy stickers and mounted my photo on some paper from an old Felicity Jane kit that Suse Fish designed.


Finally I added some colourful mini star stickers and some irridescant star sequins.


Don't forget to pop over to Stick It Down and join in with the sketch challenge!
