A prickly post !

Hi everyone,

Today for my Vera Lane Studio post I have made an ATC and an Art Journal page. I have used the 'Succulents' set that was released this week. I love them ! 

This ATC was made with a piece of gelli printed paper from my stash. I added some stamping and washitape before adding the cactus. I coloured it with my Copics. The sentiment is from the same set. 

I really enjoyed colouring these plants but when I finished I spent ages to find a background that I liked. I painted one, threw it away because I didn't like it, tried gelli prints from my stash, didn't like it. In the end I found this 12 x 12 paper in my stash and decided that it looked  nice, especially with the sentiment. So I cut a piece to fit my journal and added washitape to put the pots on. After gluing the plants in place and the sentiment too I declared it finished :o) ! 

You'll find the set HERE

Thank you so much for stopping by ! 


  1. Fabulous creations! This new set is adorable, Jo x

  2. You found the perfect background for those prickly cacti, Corrie - I just love this!

  3. Love them both, Corrie, but that second one is my favorite! Love the wisdom as much as the art. When in a hurry or "stuck," I often reach for designer paper scraps to use as a background. The one you chose is perfect! Mwah! (I am so ordering these stamps!)
