Come party with us !

Hello everyone,

The lovely Janet from Vera Lane Studios has a colouring competition on her FB page. She gave away a freebee postcard to colour and post on the FB page. Me being me, I couldn't resist to break the rules and made a journal page instead !

I started with making the background. I used a page out of my journal; I tore it out and put some model paste through a stencil on it and then gessoed it. Next I used my favourite Lindy's Stampgang sprays and created this pink and orange page. I glued some patterned paper on it and used my homemade stamps to create more interest. The result of the stamping is very subtle. I also used a bottle top and white and black paint to stamp the circles. 
Next I took the postcard Janet gave us and coloured the girl and the cat with my Copic Markers, keeping to the same colours as I used for the background, just adding grey for the cat. I put the sentiment into a chipboard speech bubble..
I cut both figures out and adhered them to the page. 
That was that ! 

Thank you for stopping by today. 

I have to appologize for not being around so much lately. I am redecorating the house which needs painting top to bottom. I am about halfway I think. So bear with me, I will be back before you know it ! 


  1. Gorgeous , love the link and orange and those figures are adorable, love their eyes and your colouring is lovely. Tracy x

  2. Hoi Corrie,
    dit is weer een plaatje zeg !
    Gebruik je in huis ook wat modelpaste ? Zou wel cool zijn he ! :)

  3. Gaaf corrie, mooie kleurtjes!! Succes met je verven van je huis :)

  4. Brilliant although the cat doesn't as though it is in the party mood!
    Great colours.

  5. Love the background stencilling on this page, and the colour is lovely! The characters seem to be lacking enthusiasm for partying though, maybe they are all party-ed out? After all, the silly season is approaching!

  6. Apart die twee kleuren, komt hier heel mooi uit! Leuke textuur! Groetjes, Gerrina

  7. Great page in your trademark colours - love the textured background and the words and pictures together made me smile!! Hope the redecorating has been going well.
