Full House!

Welcome to this weeks 

I went down the right column
 using Kyliee from our sponsor

 I tried to cut a frame aperture in my base card, but it didn't go through properly.
I was going to throw it away, but then I thought I might repeat the error instead.
This gave me a second frame layer that was nicely embossed rather than cut out.
 To add interest to the background I inked
 and stamped the word Love in a variety of fonts
 The inking made the semi cut shapes stand out even more.
 I coloured Kyliee with promarkers...
 and glued her behind the frame.
I had the perfect coloured lace to add across the bottom,
and some soft green pearls to give her an earring.
 I added another to her gown and the "o" in the sentiment.
Just for fun I tried going for a "Full House" as it where.
The snowflakes are embossed into the base card and everything else except the main image is stamped directly onto the card as well :D
Unfortunately the green ink I used for the deer and the lace border
 looks more yellowy on the photo...
but it just proves it can be done :D

Continuing the Journey...

After studying Tam's "Happy Traveller Class" last month
I really got inspired and got back into art journalling.
I made these 3 pages(A4 cold press watercolour paper)
Then I got a bit more "ME"
and my next page took a bit of a creepy turn...
 as I got to thinking about all those people out there teaching "Love" but allowing (or even encouraging) their followers to be hateful to others because their work is similar.
 But then I pulled back the more gentle aspects for a while...
 though she did look just a little sad.
 My pieces are led not by politics, but by the expression of the face I draw to begin with.
Yes maybe it is my subconscious guiding my hand...maybe not. 
 But my Mad Hare self couldn't help trying to cheer her up :D
 ..because she is beautiful just being who she is...
 and if that is being a little sad now and then...that's just fine X

On a lighter note...I just looked at my pages and realised I have made each page to a different element lol
Guess I'm pretty good at being "ME"
Enjoy :D XXX

Wintery wildlife

Today's challenge from 

A subject very close to my heart as most of you know :D
I recently bought a digi kit from Daisy Trail called
This kit is all line drawings(digi stamps).
I used my graphics programme to make my own topper image ...
then coloured with my trusty Promarkers :D
*he's just sooo fluffy!!!*
Because I was leaving the background pure white
I stamped the base card with tiny holly sprigs.
I added a ribbon border, and made a matching ribbon flower
*3 loops glued n top of each other*
and I just love the Yuletide vibe it gives off :D
 Enjoy :D XXX

Entered for the following challenges;

Let it Poe!

I decided to mix 2 challenges for this card
 I had a great digi image from TPS "Nevermore"
Poe has been an inspiration to me for many years now.
I thought he would look at home on a "tangled" background...
 and decided to make my own.
I often struggle with black on white visually
but it wasn't til I posted these pics that I realised how bad it has gotten.
 I genuinely thought all my lines had matched up lol
Oh well, maybe I should try working on a coloured background and see what happens.

Enjoy :D XXX
