This week at Vera Lane Studio

 Hello everyone, 

Welcome to my blog where today I am sharing another project for Vera Lane Studio. I have made a postcard with an older set called ' Snail mail'. 


This is a background that was a mop up from the gelli plate. I added some stamping with Janet's stamps by AALL & Create and som washi tape too. I printed the images, coloured them and adhered them to the card. Lastly I added the sentiment and went around the strips with a purple pencil. 

You'll find 'Snail mail' HERE.

Thank you for stopping by today !

Happy birthday

 Hello everyone, 

Today's project is the second inspiration piece for the August Challenge over at Country View Challenges. The theme is 'birthday card/gift' so I made another card. I used Katzelkraft stamps this time. 


Here's how I made it:


First I watercoloured the rabbit.



He is by Katzelkraft. 


Next I coloured a piece of watercolour paper with Distress Oxides by dunking the card into the ink that I spritzed with water. 


Next I toned it down with white paint and a brayer. 


Stamped the background here and there. I used the same Distress Oxides and a Versafine Clair stamp pad in Nocturne. 


I then stamped the sentiment. I needed to be where the rabbit could 'write it' so I had him on the card before stamping so I could guess where to place the stamp.
I also added a few bits of washi tape for him to stand on. 


And here it is. I added some doodling lines along the edges to finish it of.. 



There is still time to play along with our challenge. Made sure to read the RULES though! 
Thank you for stopping by today.

Inspire

Hello everyone, 

For today's AALL & Create project I have made an art journal spread in one of my smaller journals. It measures about 15 x 11 cm and is by Hahnemühle. It turned out a little busy but I think I quite like it.  



Here's how I made this:


I made the background with oil pastels; adding vertical stripes of colour in rainbow order. Of course it turned out way to bright to my liking so I used a brayer and white paint to tone it down. I then heat embossed this stamp over the top. 


Next I added some stencilling using inks and this Dahlia stencil. I tried to keep to the rainbow again using the same - ish colours as the background. 


Next I stamped the background randomly using grey and black Versafine clair. 


If it wasn't busy enough.... lol I added some washi tape. 


I used this butterfly as a focal and coloured it with Copic Markers. 


Next I stamped some of the words of this stamp to use as a sentiment. 


And that finished it off. 



I have used the following AALL & Create products:

Stencil #89 - Dahlias by Autour de Mwa

This week at Vera Lane Studio

 Hello everyone,

Welcome to my blog where today I am sharing a tag that I made with 'Spa day' which was released this week. 


I used a stencil print that I had in my stash. I cut it into a tag shape. The stencil is by AALL & Create. 
I printed, coloured and cut out the little girl, added washi tape to the paper and glued the image on top. I added the sentiment and ribbon and that finished off the tag. 

You'll find this adorable girl HERE.

A time of wonders

 Hello everyone, 

It's Tuesday so that means another project for AALL & Create. This time I have made a mini album. I have used Eileen Hull's passport die by Sissix to cut out the book. 


Here's how I made this:


After die cutting the pieces for the book I stamped this image by Dominic on the front cover. This was a little more difficult than what I normally do because this image is impossible to cut out so I had to work with it straight on my project. 


Next, I used watercolours, watercolour markers and coloured pencils to colour in the image. 


I then used watercolours and Distress Ink to colour the background. When that all had dried, I added some stencilling and stamping. I added more later... 


I did the same with the spine of the book and the back cover. I just didn't add a focal image. 


Next I added some more stamping, some doodling lines and pieces of pattern paper for something different.. The sentiment is a clippings sticker and I added two double pages inside, attaching them to the book with sari ribbon. That finished the book. 


The back...


I have used the following AALL & Create products:

Stencil #39 - Lotza Dotz by Autour de Mwa
Stamp # 757 - Tickets  by Tracy Evans
Stamp #776 - Funghi Flowers by Dominic Phillips

This week at Vera Lane Studio

 Hello everyone, 

Happy Thursday! For today's Vera Lane Studio project I have made an ATC with an older set called 'Tomboy'. 




First I cut an ATC size (3,5" x 2,5") piece out of paper out of a gelli print.  
I added a little stamping and then glued the washi tape on it. I added a border with a black pen and coloured the image and cut her out. I placed her on the tape to ground her and lastly I added the sentiment which is from the same set. 

This cutie is still available on request. 

Thank you for stopping by today !

A hippity hoppity birthday

 Hello everyone, 

For the first August AALL & Create project I have made a birthday card for a furry animal lover.


Here is how I made this:


First I watercoloured this adorable bunny.


I then made a simple background with a stencil and Distress Oxide ink. I rubbed the ink pads over the stencil (Fossilised Amber & Rusty Hinge) and spritzed water over it. I then printed the stencil on the card. 


I then stamped the background randomly.


Adding some washi tape to stand little bunny on and a bit in the top right corner to balance it. 


I decided to make up a new sentiment, lol. 


and here she is! Lastly I added some turquoise pencil around the words and glued the panel on a white card.
