Let's Face It

 This is the theme over at Art "Journal" Journey  and as I had been sorting through some stamps earlier today I found one of my favourite Face Stamps.

The theme covers all types of Faces, from Clocks, Humans, Animals etc, it's up to you, just let the creativity flow..


I coloured my pages in pink inks and then stamped the face image, I then added the other images using the masking method. The little clock face was stamped separately and then added to the page.

I didn't colour much of the face,a slight shading on the hair and deep pink for the lips, the eye lids do have a slight pale blue/gray colour, but it doesn't really show in the photo

This is my entry for Let's Face it at Art Journal Journey

and I am also entering it in to these challenges below.

Old Office...

 At last I've managed to join in with Sunday Postcard Art this week. 

Rein has chosen the theme this time around and it's Old Office.

I wasn't quite sure which way to go with my postcard to be honest.

I had several images I cold have collaged, but then I had a stamp that was in my stash from several years ago..an old typewriter that had been given a head,lol....so I went with the stamp.



I stamped the head again and coloured it in and added it to the typewriter, I just wanted to make it stand out a bit more, then I added extra images relating to office.
You can find the challenge here at SUNDAY POSTCARD ART.

A Snowy Artist Trading Card

 I stumbled across two lovely challenge blogs, one is called Atc Around the World. and the other is called Atcs with a Heart

I have always loved creating Atcs ( Artist Trading Cards ), after being introduced to them by 2 lovely ladies many moons ago, ( around 18+ years ago )  June McFarlane and Cheryl Baker. I still have a few of their Atcs that I received in several swaps at that time.

I am still in contact with June on Facebook, where she has a group that shares free images, unfortunately I lost contact with Cheryl a few years ago.

I still enjoy making atcs and just had to enter both of the challenges. 

Atc Around the World has "Snow" as their theme.

Atcs With a Heart has "Everything Goes" as their theme


Using distress ink, I lightly coloured my Atc pale blue, then stamped the image.

I then coloured the cabin and trees before adding some glitter for the sparkly snow.


You can find these lovely challenges here at  ATC AROUND THE WORLD and ATC WITH A HEART

I am so happy to have found 2 Atc blogs that I can play along with.

He's late.....

 Time flies doesn't it, already we are a week in to 2022.

Happy New Year to all my Followers, I hope you all have a Wonderful and Crafty 2022.

My post today is to share my Tag I made for Michele's theme over at Tag Tuesday. I did make this tag a couple of days ago and I honestly thought I had blogged it.

Michele's theme is Time/Clocks, so I made a tag from embossed card and added the Mad Hatter from Alice In Wonderland, covering both Time and Clocks.

Do pop over to Tag Tuesday and join in with our challenge, you will be able to see Michele's fabulous tags too.

Cute Tags

 Over at Tag Tuesday Pinky has chosen Anything Christmas for her theme.

It just so happens that I made several Christmassy Tags to tie on to the presents for the little ones in my family.

I used the Hare Stamp from Crafty Individuals, the stamp was actually given to me. I love the Hares wearing their party hat.



I coloured each a different colour using watercolour pencils, also shading in around the nose, feet and tail, then distressed the edges in ink.
Just added an eyelet to each tag with some gold thread and they were done.
Hope you manage to find time to join in with the challenge.

My Angel

 I'm a tad late entering the challenge over at Sunday Postcard Art this week. I've had a few errands to do and a meet up for a coffee.

The theme this week is Angels and was chosen by Sabine.

My postcard is digitally created using a snowy photo taken quite some time ago by a friend, which I overlaid on a photo of some spare card ( cut to the required size of 6"x 4" ) that I had used with Oxide inks.

The berries are from Serif Craft Artist.

On top of that I overlaid the music sheet, finally adding my Angel.


All in all I am very happy with my postcard.
I am in the middle of finishing another Angel Postcard, something that kept me occupied when I couldn't sleep...
Do pop over to the challenge and join in if you can, just remember your postcard must be 6"x 4".
