Ghetto Rat birthday card

Posted in Uncategorized on May 23, 2016 by craftytrog

Got my paints and stamps out in the Black Isle Berries Bunkhouse where we’re staying at present, as a card was needed for a nearby little family member we’ll be seeing whilst we’re here. A few of my hubby’s relatives live up this way, and it’s lovely to catch up with them on our travels.

Banksy style stamp by Bee Crafty, Visible Image Stamps, PaperArtsy Fresco Finish Paint, Tim Holtz stencils, and various texture items. I folded this in half lengthwise to make it into a card for Ben.
Happy Monday,

PaperArtsy Challenge – Scribbles and Doodles

Posted in art journalling, PaperArtsy Challenge, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , on May 19, 2016 by craftytrog

This journal spread was inspired by an article by Anneke De Clerck in the March 2016 Craft Stamper magazine. Anneke started with a black card base, but I painted my journal pages with black fresco paint before adding paint, stencilling and stamping. I doodled around Emma Godfrey’s sketchy squares and rectangles, then painted them with Frescos. The sun was hand drawn.

I’m entering my spread in the PaperArtsy Scribbles and Doodles challenge.

We’re on the island of South Uist in The Outer Hebrides at the moment, enjoying spotting seals, lots of birds including eagles, otters and deer on our walks. It’s a beautiful wild place with glorious views. You can see lots of photos on my facebook page.

Tim Holtz 12 Remix Tags of 2016 – May

Tim’s May inspiration tag is stunning! He re-mixed his Tattered Florals and Tissue Tape Resist techniques. You can see Tim’s tagĀ HERE.

I was inspired to make this little card for the lovely couple whose cottage annex we’ve been staying in on Skye this past week. They were so friendly, and the accommodation was just perfect, I wanted to leave them a thank you card.

Live Simply e

I’ve used Dina Wakley stamps, a That’s Crafty! Dinky Stencil, PaperArtsy Grunge Paste, Distress Stains, Remnant Rubs, Sizzix Dies, and Tissue Tape on some Strathmore Mixed Media paper.

We’re leaving Skye today, and on our way to South Uist in The Outer Hebrides for another week of our Scottish tour.

Have a great weekend everyone!
