Oddball Sweetie Pie

Here I am with another Inspiration Post for Oddball Art Co's New Releases.


I am using the New Release Sweetie Pie IMG394.



Ekkkkkkkkkkkk how uber cute is she!!!!!
Love her!

I coloured her and her heart with copic markers and popped her heart up on a foam dot to give some dimension.
A retired piece of patterned paper from SU, as is the Hello die. The only thing I hate about this die is that I have to use my white gel pen to ensure you know what it says! Could be just me, but it looks like it's a reject die they forgot to put the holes in. I know it's not and it is the style they created for this set.
The Birch tree, Fence and Stitched Oval are dies from Jaded Blossom.

It's a pretty easy one that you all should be able to play along with!
All you have to do is to use some Vellum on your project. 

Little Blue Button Stamps
I got the chance to use Sweet Dreams.


Isn't she just so sweet!!!!!!!
She reminds me of the Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star song.
Like my project last fortnight, I used my paints with my Geli Plate and stencils to create my base on a page from an old novel.
I added the rain drops stamp using Jet Black Mementos ink to create some depth.
My image is coloured with Copic markers and I purposely left a sentiment off the front so the image has all the focus.
I used my vellum circle in between the image and another die cut, again to give some focus.
The gold dots on the vellum really does make the card sparkle!

Oddball Carly Marley

Here I am with another Inspiration Post for Oddball Art Co's New Releases.


I made another Art Journal Page and am using Carly Marley IMG385 a&b.


I love how it turned out and have to tell you that I am thankful that the pains I suffer aren't that chronic that the only way to ease it is in the form of Medical Marijuana.
I also hate that there is such a stigma around it for those who's need is genuine. Clearly it's by people that are lucky not to experience pain no more than a headache!
All I ask is that we show some tolerance in life and in art, as I know some people will be offended just by my posting this project, and I say to them, get over it and move on, life is short and there by the grace of God goes you!

All digi images coloured with copic markers.
My Journal Page has been created with paints, Distress Oxide Inks and Distress Inks using assorted stencils and stamps.


Don't forget to use My Discount Code in the store and I hope to see your colouring of Carly!

Baby Girl & Bunny

Nearing the end of another month, so time for another Progressive Challenge over at Sasayaki Glitter Digital Stamps.

We have a cute image this time round called Baby Girl & Bunny.


Such a sweet image.

Another Art Journal Page as I am enjoying the process and extra freedom creating them.
It's very hard to tell but I actually scraped some pink gelto crayon into my glitter whipped spackle to give a coloured sparkle. The top left has it but not a huge success as I used it on the numbers stamp. As I said, it's a great time to experiment and try new things.
Anyways, various paints, distress ink, stencils, stamps and digi image coloured with copic markers.
Sentiment is from Simply B Stamps and I've used the Black Aquarellable Pencil and aqua pen for the outline.

I am entering them in the following Challenges:
  1. Sasayaki Glitter Facebook Progressive Challenge # 17
  2. A Inky Mess # 12
  3. Crafty Creations # 346
  4. Lil Patch of Crafty Friends # 62

Oddball January 2018 Planner Page

Time for another Inspiration Post for you using Oddball Stamps.

Image may contain: 1 person

I showed you a couple of days ago the cover of my 2018 Planner, so here is my January page all done.

I am doing this planner in A5 size (yep, forgot to mention that last post!), but you could easily make it an A4 if you chose.


A close up


So you can see I have room to add more later if I want or can leave as is as I'm totally happy with how it is at the moment.


All images were coloured with Copic Markers.
I used some Gesso underneath where Heidi is to defuse the notes lines and used some Gelto's to create a smoky background.
I dabbed the sentiment bubble with Distress Ink to give a grungy look....
The whole background part didn't work out as I had thought it might, but I'm ok with that!
You all know the good thing about art is that there really is no wrong, so jump on in like me and give it a go!

Ok on to February now I guess!
