Pug Love

Inked up a new stamp from a set by Funky Fossil Designs for this art journal page.

Inky background with stamping, washi tape and the image was coloured with Promarkers.

Went for a quirky triangular shaped page in my loose leaf journal.

Don’t be afraid little one…

 

She is just such a cute tiny image by Stampotique Originals.
Another journal page for my little handmade journal. Use some layered up washi tapes to ground my image and then fancied sewing onto the page.


The main image and the leaves on the back of the page are all coloured with Promarkers. Inky background using both stencils and stamping.

Over the past couple of summer months ai have been slow stitching these projects using my own swallow design.

First up a little wool felt swallow hanger.

Then been wanting to make an embroidery thread holder for ages and have finally done it!

Just Bee Happy

 


Really pleased with how this card turned out. I haven’t used shrink plastic in ages but the bees in this Woodware set of stamps were too big for the design as it developed. Even used some stick on fabric letters, along with inky background and some colouring using Promarkers.

Journal Curve Time


Really enjoy different page shapes in this journal, trying to change things up each month. Used a stamp I hadn’t inked before by Carabelle Studio designed by Kate Crane…but added the skirt and legs myself.

Lots of inky stencil work and stamping throughout this page.

Colour combo

 


Inspired by some of the clothing I have seen on tv recently and thought would make a interesting focus for my latest art journal page. I just had to give this fab girl pink hair!


The page has a flap to reveal the quote I chose.

Used some neon inks and two different stencils. My favourite spotty background stamp too.

Image by Stampotique and coloured using Promarkers.

Boys will be Boys

 


Enjoyed inking up one of my newly purchased stamps designed by Kate Crane for Carabelle Studio.
Inky background using 3 different stencils and a little ink splat stamping too.

Cards for men are generally more challenged but this new image seem to fit the bill!

On the thin side

 Managed to squeeze in a bit of journaling before March disappear!

Went for a slim page in the loose page I made at the start of the year.


Flipped over the page and I added a quote.

Winter Wishes

 



My craft space has been redecorated so this is the first time I have managed to get my craft table and it was lovely to make a mess and do some colouring.
