Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers - #194 - U is for Ugly

 Good Morning all my Snarky pals! Today Edna at Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers has a brand new snarky challenge for us...

U is for Ugly


A HUGE thanks to Lee for this amazing graphic!!!! You rock Lee!


I made a card using a Blob fish, which is pretty ugly in my opinion!


I used a gelli print background I have had for a while, added some stamping, my Blob fish and a sentiment... Life is hard.. it's harder if you're ugly! 

I do hope you will check out what my Sistahs have done and share your snarky creations with us!

Happy Creating!

ATC Around the World - #81 - Colour Challenge

 Good Morning Everyone! I missed my teamies at 

ATC Around the World

so I am back on the design team to share some ATC inspiration! 



This month's challenge is a colour challenge... use this board as inspiration for your ATC.


I find it difficult using pinks and browns, 

so this was definitely a challenge for me.. but here it is...


I used rose gold modeling paste to make the harlequins, some pinkish water colour on a beige background, and some umber brown around the edges. 

I do hope you will join us and share you ATC with us!

Try it on Tuesday - Summer Blooms

 Good Morning all! It is definitely Summer in Southern Ontario! The sun has been shining, the humidity is up and everything is in bloom and beautiful! 

The challenge at Try it on Tuesday for the next two weeks is 

so appropriate for this time of year...

"Summer Blooms"


For my design team work, I was inspired by the summer blooms outside my front door...


I had a peek through my stack of scrappy papers, found some I liked and made an art journal spread using these! Lots of fussy cutting, stamping, embossing, and just plain fun created this spread for you today!


Here are a couple close ups of the cutting....



Thanks for taking a peek today and I do hope you will share your Summer Blooms with us at Try it on Tuesday!

Happy Creating!

Gecko Galz - August Image Challenge

 Good Morning all! Today I made an art journal spread for a challenge over at Gecko Galz


The image is on their blog and this is it... isn't she just gorgeous!


For this challenge, I made an art journal spread, first layering some book pages down, added acrylic paints here and there with some words, some modeling paste through TCW stencil, some outlining, some splatters and washi tape,  cut out the image, added a sentiment, and voila.. done! 


A fun challenge and an awesome image! 


Thanks for taking a peek!

Happy Creating!
