TGIF "All is New"

All is new is the theme at TGIF. I thought I would be too busy to post anything else, but couldn't resist using some of my new goodies on this challenge. Have called it New Beginnings.

Really enjoyed doing something totally none Christmassy with different colours for a change.

Theme Thursday "Christmas Tag"

Happy Christmas everyone!!!

After having cooked dinner for 15 people and a busy family afternoon, I felt it was time for a little me time. Here is the last of the many tags I made this Christmas.

I'm off the day after tomorrow and will see you all again in the New Year.

Back on January 7th. Hope you all will have a peaceful festive time and I wish everyone a creative New Year!

TMTA "Christmas"

The theme at Think Monday Think ATC is to show a Christmas ATC. This is the very last one I made. Faux leather paper background, embossed with cuttlebug etc. The wings are Grunge board.

I'm fairly sure this will be one of the last challenges i will be doing umtil well into the New Year, as I'm going away, so I want to use this opportunity to wish all visitors to my blog a very happy holiday season and thanks for all your encouragement!

Mixed Media Monday "Gold"

The theme at MMM is Gold. I started out with the full intention to NOT do something Christmassy for a change. I even has another image, but then after I had done the background it just asked for this little angel to finish it off, the other image just did not fit. So there we are, yet another Christmas card, I guess it'll either be a surprise card for someone or gather dust until next year as all my other cards are mosted out. (Just feeling smug:)
Most of the gold embossing has been lost in the scan as is the matting on gold mirri card...

TMTA "Lamps"

The theme at TMTA is lamps this week, this affords the freedom to either create something christmassy or not. As I just had the perfect Christmas stamp (bought in a closing down sale just last week) it turned out to be christmassy. Main image stamped in black archival ink, coloured with distress inks and water soluable pencils and then an image added from an old French Christmas card I got last summer in France at a fleemarket. Card was scanned obviously as I did not want to cut up the actual postcard. The snowflakes were added with a Ranger white gel pen

Sunday Postcard "Bright Colours"

Finally had some time to do the Sunday Postcard art challenge again. The theme is "Bright Colours", to cheer us all here in the Northern Hemisphere's cold and wintry weather.

My background was done with glimmer mists, the letters are schrink plastic. The colours have totally gone lost in the scan, so the result is rather boring I'm afraid:0(

Saturdays Workout "Design your canvas"

The theme at SaWo is to design a canvas. This week as it so happened i did a piece on a canvas for the first time. Painted with paint dabbers from Rangers, added some embossed metal, added texture with PVA and embossing powders etc. and added an image plus some grungeboard letters.

Wednesday Stamper - "Metal"

The theme at WS is metal. I created two ATCs with metal strips at the bottom, as Christmas greetings for crafting buddies. The strips are coloured with alcohol inks. The background paper was made using the faux leather technique.

Think Monday Think ATC "Stone Angels"

The theme at TMTA is stone angels. Mine is created on the background provided by Vintage Wil's new challenge blog, "art on Friday". I had no time on Friday to create anything, but it is a wonderful background and I thought it would fit this theme also.

Birthday Card

Birthday Card
Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
