Drink coffee and raise chickens

 Hi everyone, 

For today's AALL & Create GDT post I have made a postcard. I love watercouloring but usually grab my Copics when I have to colour something. This time I thought I would take a little time and use my watercolours. I enjoyed it very much. 



Here's how I made it:


First I stamped this cute chick image on a postcard size piece of watercolour paper. 


I then painted the chicks with three shades of yellow. I used an orangy yellow for the feet and beaks. 


I used a turquoise wash around the chicks to make them stand out more. 


Next I added some stencilling using Distress Oxide ink in Broken China. 


I then stamped parts of this stamp over the stencilling and brayered some white paint over it to tone it all down a little. 


Because it is a postcard I wanted to add a postage stamp and I found this one in my stash. It has a chick on it.. so fun! I used one of Abs' wisecracks circle stamps to 'stamp' the postage stamp. I also used it in two different places on the card for balance. 


Lastly I added yellow paint splatters and added some grey watercolour around the edges of the card to frame it. 



I used the following materials:

Stencil : #143 - Creatively Crossed by Autour de Mwa
Stamps:
#554 - Lined Cross by Bipasha Bk
#489 - Wisecracks by Autour de Mwa
#559 - Feathered friends by Bipasha Bk

Leave a little sparkle..

 Hello everyone, 

Today I am sharing an art journal spread that I have made for Country View Challenges' January challenge with the theme 'Shine and sparkle new year',  set by the lovely Jo. I used very sprarkly embossing powder today and I think it came out lovely. It is just that my craft room (and the rest of the house) is covered in glittery bits... lol

We would love you to play along with us but before you do, please read the RULES on the Country View Challenges blog. 



If you'd like to see how I made this then please hop over to my YOUTUBE channel or click on the picture below:

This week at Vera Lane Studio

 Hello everyone, 

Happy Thursday ! For today's Vera Lane Studio project I have made a postcard. 



After messing about with different background I resorted to using designer paper. This is by Stamperia. I added some white paint and pink stamping along the edges mainly. I printed this cute little girl and coloured her and cut her out. I used Copic Markers to colour her. The sentiments are Tim Holtz Clippings stickers. 

This little girl is from the 'Cookie Swap' set and you'll find it HERE.

Thank you for stopping by today !

Cluck, cluck..

 Hi everyone,

Welcome to my blog where today I am sharing an AJ page I made for AALL & Create. I really like this chicken in his boots, he is so quirky! 


and here's how:


I stamped and coloured the chicken, I used watercolour markers and coloured pencils. I then cut him out without all the bits around him.


Next I did a gelli print with this stencil. It came out grungy because my gelli plate is really dirty. But I like it. I usually brayer over white paint anyway so any bits I don't like will disappear! 


Next I stamped the background. I wanted some red as an accent colour and after I stamped I cut out the red crossed from ......


....this washi tape and stuck them inside the open cross stamps. 


I then added some lines around the page and stamped the chicken straight on my page. I am going to glue the cut out one over the top so all the missing bits are back! 


And here it is all finished. I used a part of another stamp of the same set as a sentiment. 



I have used the following materials:

Stencil #145 - Jumbo ABC's by Bipasha Bk
Stamps:
#559 - Feathered friends by Bipasha Bk
#489 - Wisecracks by Autour de Mwa

Washi tape: #4 - Encrypt by Autour de Mwa

This week at Vera Lane Studio

 Hello everyone, 

Happy Thursday and happy New Year too. For the first VLS post for this year I have made a postcard. 


I made the background with Distress Oxide inks and AALL & Create stamps. I also used white acrylic paint and a brayer to tone everything down.
This lovely girl is representing the star sign 'Aquarius' and I printed, coloured and cut her out. I adhered her to the card and added one of the sentiments of the set. Lastly I added some graphite pencil here and there. 

You'll find this new set HERE.

Thank you for stopping by today !

What a world..

 Hello everyone, 

Welcome to my blog where today I am sharing a postcard that I made for AALL & Create.

I made a gelli print with this stencil. You can just see some circles in the print which were left over from the last print I made. I used Bug Hotel then.

Next I added more stamping, this time using Distress Oxide ink. 


A piece of washi tape for the main image to stand on. 


The focal image and the sentiment.




How cute is she??

Stencil #139 - Snow Pines by Janet Klein
Washi tape Verde que te queiro verde
