Let's Get Sketchy

You know my love for sketches - both designing them and using them in my scrapping.  I was delighted when I learnt SpiegelMom Scraps was linking up with Let's Get Sketchy.  I don't have a SpiegelMom's project due for this week but I have played along with the sketch anyway.  I love it - it is designed by our very own Sara.

I had a play with my Shimmerz Dazzlerz, paints and mists for the background.  I was desperate to use my new stencil.

I'm having health problems at the moment and these are the best photos I can get - My hands are so shaky!  

 I've used Autumn Joy sequin mix, which match the paint colours perfectly.

I've used some big scallop washi tape in glittered gold (from like for ever) for layering pieces and some torn cardstock painted with Shimmerz.

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope to be back soon

DMIO: Teach Me Something

A few weeks back I made a dream catcher.  A few readers asked if I could show them how I made it, so, here is my attempt at a tutorial! First up weaving the web. 1. You'll need a hoop and some ribbon/thread/yarn on a bobbin. 2. Attach the ribbon securely to your hoop. 3. Take your ribbon over the top of the hoop... 4. and up through the loop you've just made with the ribbon... 5. so you have a cross over. 6. Continue steps 3-5 until you reach the knot. 7. Now instead of going over the hoop you will crossover the ribbon 8. and through the loop you've just made to give a crossover. Continue on in this fashion until you get to the middle. You need to leave a hole in the middle as this is where the good dreams get through!  They then run down the tassels/feathers/any other hanging decoration and on to the owner.  It should look something like this.  You'll need to play around with your tension until you get a firm web. Now for the tassels - I like to

A Poe Quote

So I've been trying out art journalling for a while but had nothing that I wanted to share, until now. I was inspired by The Bears Challenge and picked this quote to base my page on. "If you wish to forget anything on the spot, make a note that this thing is to be remembered" I got some paints out, some spray mists too.  I used my fan brush, my fingers and a cotton rag.  I got messy, satisfyingly messy :) The letters are some old letraset vinyls that were my Aunt's.  When we cleared my Grandparents house I couldn't stand the art goodies to go to waste.  I saved them because I knew one day I would find a use for them.  They must be 40 years old but are still perfect.  (I sometimes look at things I get today and think they won't still be good in 5 years let alone 40!) I don't have the complete alphabet so there are some adaptations... c's became o's, E's became t's, w's became m's.  I magicked a k from a P!  Some
