This week at Vera lane Studio

Hello everyone,

Happy Thursday, I hope you are all well.
For this week's post I have made a tag and a postcard. The tag was made with this week's release called 'Be You' and the postcard with one of the rats from the set 'Oh rats' that was released last week.

This tag was cut from a piece of paper that I painted pink stripes on. I added a little bit of stamping with pink ink too. She was coloured with Copics, coloured pencils and cut out. I adhered her to the tag and added the sentiment. With a graphite pencil I added some shading under her and the sentiment. You will find this set HERE

How cute is he ! lol. He looks a little lost. I cut a piece of pattern paper to the size 6"x4" and added some paint with a brayer. The rat was coloured and cut out; I used Copic Markers and coloured pencils. I then cut him out and adhered him on the card after adding som washi tape for him to sit on. I used a pencil to add some shading under the words and the rat. Lastly I added some ink with a blending tool along the edges of the card.

You will find Oh rats HERE

Thank you so much for stopping by today !

Usual Suspect

Hello everyone,

For today's VivaLasVegaStamps! DT post I have made a mini journal page.

And here's how In made it:

I tore a page out of my journal and cut is slightly smaller. I coloured it with Distress Oxide Inks by dunking it in pools of ink and water. Drying in between layers. I then sprayed water over it and dried again. Next I did some stamping in the same colours. 

Next step: Adding some stencilling with an UmWow stencil and white paint. I also drew around the hearts with a white paint pen and added some splatters. 

I thought it needed some black so I added more stamping. That was my background done. 

I stamped this doggie and coloured him with my Copics. I only added shading because I wanted him to be a white dog. 

I adhered him on the page and added some washi tape for him to sit on. The sentiment was added and doodled around. Lastly I glued the page back into my journal. 

I have used the following stamps:

Other materials:

Distress Oxides:
Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmelade, Chrushed Olive and Broken China. 

UmWow stencil : Chunky Heart

Versafine Clair ink. 
Copic Markers 
washi tape

Every day is a new adventure

Hello everyone,

For today's AALL & Create Guest Design post I have made a mixed media tag.

And here is how I made it:

First I put Sandpaste on my gessoed tag. I was not impressed with the result but decided to keep going to see if I could save it. 

Next I used Distress Oxide Sprays to add colour. I used : 
Squeezed Lemonade, Spiced Marmelade and Picked Raspberry.

I used a brayer with white paint to tone it down a little. I always forget how bright these sprays are. Next I added some stamping. 

Some more stamping and I got the sentiment ready. 

I wanted to add a focal image but after I finished making the background I thought it was nice as it was so I decided to just add the sentiment. 

I have used :
Stamp #266 Daisy Elegance by Tracy Evans
#302 Going Postal by Tracy Evans
Stencil #77 Sunflower power by Olga Heldwein

This week at Vera Lane Studio

Hello everyone,

Happy Thursday!

For today's Vera Lane Studio project I have made a card and a postcard with the same set "Alice".

This CaS card was made by printing a stencil onto the card front. I rub a stencil with Distress Oxide ink, spray it with water and print. I then added the washi tape and the strip of pattern paper. Next I coloured and cut out the rabbit and the sentiment and adhered them to my card. 
You'll find the rabbit and Alice in the SHOP

This Alice card has a design paper base on white I added paint and inked up the edges. I die cut a doily and adhered it. Alice was coloured and cut out and I then typed the sentiment, I added some doodles and that was that ! 

You'll find Alice and the rabbit in the SHOP.

If the images are sold out in the shop, please contact the owner Janet and she'll make them available again. 

Thank you so much for stopping by !

Favourite tales

Hello everyone,

for today's AALL & Create Guest Designer Project I have decorated a mini notebook.

And here's how:

I cut two pieces of mixed media paper which are the same size as the cover of the little notebook I was going to use. I used a brayer and yellow and whit acrylic paint to add colour. Next I added Distress Oxide Ink in Carved Pumpkin onto the stencil,  spritzed it with water and printed it onto my cover. 

I added  a tiny bit of stamping..

Stamped the image that I was going to use, coloured her with Copic Markers and cut her out. I also stamped some butterflies on the back cover an used pencils to colour those in. 

After cutting out the girl I adhered her to the front cover on top of a strip of washi tape. I added some pieces of this fab die cut shape and also a clippings sticker by Tim Holtz which I coloured and adhered onto some bandage and then onto the front cover. 

Lastly I glued both covers onto the book. I had already glued some washi tape over the spine. 

I have used the following AALL & Create products:

#310 - Bubble block 
#299 - Tremendous Friend

#86 - Twirling tendrils

#13 - Bursting buds
