This week at Vera Lane Studio

 Hello everyone, 

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



I have used the newly released 'The Buzz'; I printed them and coloured them with Copic Markers. I then cut them out.  I then cut some ATC's from watercolour paper and used Distress Oxide inks to make the backgrounds. I used the smoosh, spritz and dunk method. I then added some stamping and added the images and the sentiment. 

You'll find 'The Buzz' HERE or HERE

 Hello everyone, 

Happy Thursday! For today's project for Vera Lane Studio I have made a postcard with the set 'February's heart'. She is so cute! 


I printed the images and coloured them with Copic Markers; I then cut them out. For the background I smooshed Distress Oxide ink on my craft sheet, spritzed with water and dunked my card into it. I used Picked Raspberry and Spiced Marmelade. I added some stencilling and stamping and washi tape. All by Janet for AALL & Create. I then placed the images on the washi tape and added the sentiment from the set.

This week at Vera Lane Studio

 Hello everyone, 

Happy Thursday! For today's Vera Lane Studio project I have made another postcard. I love the size of postcards, not too small, not too big ! 

I have used the this week released digital image called 'Airén'. Airén is the name of a Spanish white wine but I gave her a glass of red ! 



The background was made with Distress Oxide and white paint and a stencil. I stamped here and there with red ink and then placed the girl with her glass of red on a piece of washitape. She was coloured with Copic Markers. 

You'll find Airén HERE

This week at Vera Lane Studio

 Hello everyone, 

Happy Thursday and welcome to February; hopefully it won't be as long as January!! 

For today's post for Vera Lane Studio I have made a journal page in my 8 x 8 Dylusions Journal.


I printed and coloured the images and cut them out. I used Copic Markers for the colouring. The background was made with Distress Oxide inks and a blending tool. I put some washitape around the page to create a border and then just blended the colours together. I used Salvaged Patina, Twisted Citron, Mustard Seed and Spiced Marmelade. I then put a stencil on top that I spritzed with water, it will bleach out where the stencil sits on the paper. I then added some stamping. Next I used a brayer and white paint to tone it down, I also used the same stencil again and just stencilled with white paint in a few places. 
I place a small piece of washi tape for the little girl to stand on and then glued the images and the sentiment on the page. I black line around it finished it off. 

You'll find 'Chinese New Year' HERE.

Happy birthday

 Hello everyone, 

For today's AALL & Create Guest DT post I have made a 6 x 6 card (or journal page). 

This is going to be my last post for at least 6 months as I have decided I want to reduce my workload and concentrate on some other things besides paper crafting. I might be back later in the year, I might not be.... 



Here's how:


I coloured this piece of paper with Distress Oxide ink (Salty Ocean) and then used the stencil over the top with white acrylic paint. 


I did some background stamping...


The focal point ! I totally love Miss Dee ! I coloured her with Copic Markers.


Instead of a sentiment I decided to use washi tape saying Happy Birthday. It also serves as a place for Miss Dee to stand. 


I placed her in the middle which I normally don't do but this time I wanted to surround her with balloons. 


The balloons came from this ephemera pack. 


Here she is enjoying her birthday ! 



I have used the following materials, all by Janet Klein

Washi tape #55 - Brithday Bumps
Stencil #187 - Naughty Crosses
Ephemera #20 - Palooza Confetti
Stamps:
#961 - Birthday Dee
#338 - Background Noise
#495 - + Or X
#973 - Equations

This week at Vera Lane Studio

 Hello everyone, 

for this week's Vera Lane Studio post I have made a postcard with the newly released 'Celeste'. She is looking at the stars with her cute dog. 


I made this card by colouring it with Distress Oxide ink and Distress Ink. I swiped the ink pads over the paper until I was happy. I then added some white paint with a brayer and glued a piece of patterned paper over the bottom. I then printed and coloured the images, cut them out and placed them on the card together with the sentiment. 

You'll find Celeste HERE

After the rain

 Hi everyone, 

For today's AALL & Create project I have made a journal page with products by Bipasha Bk. 


Here's how:


This fab washi tape by Bipasha is perfect for making your own ephemera. I just stick it on tissue paper and cut around it. 


I made a stencil print with this stencil and Distress Oxide ink. 


Next I stamped the background with the same pink in and some yellow and black. 


The focal image was then stamped, coloured and cut out. I used a combination of watercolours and pencils. 


I also stamped it onto the page. I now can glue the mushrooms over the top.


Mushrooms in place, I then added pieces of my 'ephemera'. 


I used some of Tim Holtz' clippings stickers for the sentiment. Lastly I matted the page on black card stock. 




I have used the following products, all by Bipasha:

Washi tape #74 - Booming Splodge
Stencil #147 - Coffee Stains
Stamps:
#1077 - Toad In The Gnome 
#383 - Scripted Hexagons
#443 - Scripted Circles
#457 - Background Voices
