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".

S for Seaside

 Hello, it's bit chilly here this morning...and I have to go out, would rather stay home, but need to go to the post office, so I'll be wrapping up warm.

Just a quick post to add a tag to my theme over at Tag Tuesday...Use the first letter of your first name.

The image is from a stamp by Our Daily Bread, I love this stamp and it was perfect for my theme.

Do pop over and join in with the challenge if you can, there is still time to play along.

Last Challenge for 2021

Well, this is the last challenge for 2021 over at More Mixed is also my last project for the blog as I have decided to take more time out for myself. 

You will also notice that our boss lady Lozzy is going to take a break with More Mixed Media for about 6 months, I will not be returning as a designer, but hopefully will enter a challenge or two when the blog returns.

My project this month is a journal page.

I stumbled across these gorgeous Apple napkins and just had to use them for my page.

I randomly stamped some images  before swiping over with gesso.
I added the napkin once it was dry
Using more stamps I added a few numbers, sentiments and  bees on top of the napkin and also stamped some script and dots in white ink.

 Finally I placed the children, I coloured the girls dress and shoes.I also coloured the boys shirt in pale blue, but the photo just doesn't show it.

I just love how this page turned out, it actually looks better than the idea I had in my head,lol.

I hope you can pop over to More Mixed Media and join in with our last challenge, as always it is anything goes but with a colour option, the colour option is white.

Traditions at Sunday Postcard Art

I was invited to host this weeks challenge over at Sunday Postcard Art  this week.

My theme is Tradition

The definition of a Tradition is a custom or belief that is passed down through the generations or that is done time after time or year after year.

An example of a tradition is eating turkey on Thanksgiving or putting up a Christmas Tree.

My Tradition is Afternoon Tea

Here is a bit of info related to Afternoon Tea

Afternoon Tea was introduced in England by the seventh Duchess of Bedford in the year 1840.
The Duchess would become hungry around 4 o'clock in the afternoon. 
The evening meal in her household was served fashionably late at 8 o'clock, thus leaving a long period of time between lunch and dinner.

I think Afternoon Tea is still a tradition many of us still follow, maybe not eating much, but if you are like me, a cup of tea and a slice of cake or a biscuit goes down well around 4 o'clock.

I would love it if you could join in with the challenge with your choice of Tradition.
Your postcard must be 4" x 6", you can use any medium.
Have fun and I will pop over to your blog and leave some love.
