Owl are ya?

Sorry for lack of posts, i have been so busy with designing in the background, that i havent had time for alot else, but have had the odd moment to have a bit of a play!
 I adore owl's i think they are just the cutes, and had this one i had to use. Coloured in Promarkers and Tim Holtz inks, it gives it a lovely sepia colour. I think the stamp set is a Kanban set as i just recongnised the little trees! The sentiment is from a Stampin Up set called Whimsical Words which was one of the sets in the recent Sale-a-bration which has now ended, but there are some lovely verses in the set! Hopefully get chance to post some more soon, so please dont think ive abandoned you all as i really havent. Missing all my blogging friends and hope to be back with you all when i get the chance!

Scrapbook Layout

I don't often do scrapbook layouts, but i absolutely love these images and had to do a double page spread with them for my post on the Sugar and Spice Design Team for last month. Using a pink page that already had a slight pattern on, i used some masks, which i then inked around and then went round with a white pen to add stitching (and yes it took ages!) used some pearly doodles to add some accents. Inked around the photo which i used punches to make a pretty edge that i mounted the pictures on. The sentiments were from the Scribble Flowers stamp set, which i just love. I glittered the petals and added gem in centre to finish off, and must admit.... im kind of liking scrapbooking, so may have to make alot more pages.

This shot shows a close up of the stitching detail.

April Downloads of the Month

Well its that time again, the Downloads of the month are ready for you to download over at 
Crafters Companion. When i designed this set, i had a more traditional Easter design in mind, rather than the cutesy chick and egg, as well as being able to use the set for other projects rather than just Easter. So i hope you like them? if so why not pop over and download them now?
  Iwould love to see your creations made with them, so please leave me a link and i will pop over and look and leave you a comment.
Thanks for stopping by
