Free papers and a card project

Here are some papers which I created and make available for you to use in your art.
Elements used on the papers are from Catherine Designs and the Graphics Fairy, - thank you. I also used free photoshop brushes that I have collected over the years.
Right at the bottom is a card I made with one of the papers.
Had so much fun creating these papers, I was kind of in a girly mood and wanted to use lots of flowers and things, but feel well and truly ready now to move on to some more grungy looking projects.
Have a good weekend everyone!

vintage, vintage and more vintage

A quick photo of a little box I made to put in some bling for a personal swap with a friend. The swap is for stash, so the box is just a RAK. Here's hoping she'll like it...

Sunday Postcard Art "White"

Here is my contribution for the SPA challenge where the theme is white this week.
The background was created with one of Websters Pages downloadable papers, which like usual I altered a bit. The main image was a freebee that the wonderful Terri had on her blog a while back. Thank you Terri, I love this image. White signifies purity and innocence to me, and I think this sweet girl portrays that perfectly.
I added some lace and pearls to her dress and did the same behind the slits to add some extra texture and dimension

Final page of recipe booklet

Here are the final pages of my spring recipe booklet. Now all I need to do is make the tags with the recipes on the back. If you click the images you can see the details a bit better and sorry that some of the scans are a bit fuzzy.

Spring time recipe booklet

Decided to make another mini journal and use yesterday's postcard for SPA for one of the pages and then do subsequest pages in a similar style. Each of the pockets will hold a special healthy spring time recipe and the whole things is a gift for a friend. The pages are created with Websters pages downloadable papers that I altered in PSE. Images are all from my spring fairy sheet below. I still have 4 more pages to do, but here are the first 4.
Because I am a hopeless photographer I scanned the pages but as some of them have 3d embellishemnts some bits look a bit fuzzy. Sorry about that...

Sunday Postcard Art "Fair Maiden"

The theme this week at SPA was chosen by Terri of Pringle Hill Studios. It is "Fair Maiden". Here is mine. I chose one of my flower fairy images (see collage sheet below).
The background was created with digital papers from Websters Pages. I merged several different ones together to create my own version, printed it out and then added some stamping and inking etc.The borders are Tim Holtz Tissue tape. I love that stuff!

Flower Fairy Collage sheet freebee

I needed some flower fairies for a project I am working on. While I was playing around I decided to create a collage sheet with the fairies. Here it is and please feel free to use, my spring gift to all you faithful visitors to my blog.

Mini Journal

As part of the OWOH event I was lucky enough to win one of Rian's wonderful collage sheets. (See further down). I decided to make a mini journal using all of the images in some way. Several pages are posted below, including a brief description of where you can find out how to make a mini journal like that.
I finally managed to complete the journal itself and the tags to go in the pockets so the actual journalling can stay private. I am definitely going to make more of these types of journals as they are great fun to do.

Here is one spread and two close ups.
And the final page and close up

This is the cover

And finally, here are the tags

Journal prompt "Things I believe"

My good friend Roc posts a journal prompt every month. There is a group on flickr where you can see the pages everyone has created. I finally got round to doing mine for March. The prompt this month is Things I believe. This page is in my first own made water colour paper journal. The main images are from the wonderful Deborah of Land of Nod studios.

Sunday Postcard No 1

In my art group there is a postcard swap with the theme of numbers this month. This is the postcard I made. As Sunday Postcards is having the theme "No 1" I decided to put it in for that also.

Take a Word "Bird Life"

Birdlife is the theme at TAW this week. Today I went to a paper craft fair and bought a load of new stamps. This was a great opportunity to use them. I made two cards each featuring a bird on them somewhere. The main stamps are from La Blanche, I had never seen these before and I totally fell in love with them. Other stamps used are from a new plate by Paper Artsy.

Finally a little card to fit in an altoid tin made for a swap. The theme was Owls.

Can you tell I love birds??

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!
