What Colours do I play AVSC

All the leaves are brown
and the sky is grey.....
but in your craft room,
with which colours do you play?...

MMM, A tough question really as I love all colours and shades.
BUT saying that, I think the colours I use the most
are the darker ones.. Blacks, Browns, Creams, Greens
and so on..

I do work with other colours and to be honest for
some strange reason have found myself working
with lots of Pink, go figure,
(might have something to do with the kits I have been receiving lol)...

Just a couple of samples to show you
what I mean lol...

Even though this one is Blue I have still
used shades of Brown..

Thank you for stopping by...

All The Leaves Are Brown - March Project AVSC

Hello wonderful people , well here I am again to show you
what I created with the wonderful March Kit for Aunty Vera
As soon as I seen this kit I knew it was destined to be a cottage..
So the first thing I did was make a template. Easy right,
4 simple pieces of paper.
only Do Not do what I did and
that was adhere the paper on before it was put together
BEFORE checking which side it actually goes on;
YEP! you guessed it, was on the wrong side lol

Love this little Cottage...
The front..
The photos do not do justice to this little cottage..
I die cut the door 3 times,
I also cut the clock twice with black and red.
I used the gorgeous Washie Tape for
all the corners.

Then flowers were made with the Washie Tape.
Two brads for door handles.. Don't the flowers look
gorgeous with the gold Washie Tape..
Side view of the cottage..
I love this paper and adding a border from one
of the papers finishes it off nicely..

Can you see the hats and mushrooms shine?
The other side.
 How cute is this bird...

Back of the cottage..
I love this tree with all
the leaves falling off it..
I fussy cut a flower and added a Washie Tape one on top
to give a little dimension..
I used Ranger Distress Crackle paint to give the tree
a bark texture

I thought the die from Sizzix - Chevron by Tim Holtz was perfect
for the roof..

 I Placed holes in the roof and the cottage to lace
Jute String through to keep it altogether and
also to carry... 


You can see the Washie Tape on the corners here..
How big the cottage actually is..

My Besties - Gods Gift - Easter

Hello lovely people
Well we are here again in My Besties land to show you
my Design Team project for April - Gods Gift!!
The theme this month is Easter & Tags and hopefully I have created
just the thing..
 I love this trim and found it in my stash while looking for something else..
I created a tag book to hold the tags in and used the Jack & Jill
paper as I thought it suited the theme perfectly...

Isn't it pretty
Tag 1...
Image Chibi Kawall Bestie - scan 0031
She is adorable don't you think!! To me she seemed
like she owns the forest and Easter Bunny is her best friend..
I used Glossy Accents and kindy Glitz on all my tags..
 On all of the back of the tags, I stamped an quote
that I feel is revellent to the Easter theme..
Tag 2
Image Chibi Kawall Bestie - scan 0018
Oh my, when I seen this image I was in love!!
She is gorgeous... I felt she needed a soft pink
colouring to showcase her..
Her ears I wanted to show a bit fluffy so I added
some 'puff up' and heated it with my heat gun..
Again I used glossy accents on this image and decided she needed some cute
butterflies to keep her company..
Back of the tag!!

Tag 3
Big Head Big Eyes Dolls - image 180
Oh! she looks so cheeky doesn't she!!
Easter Bunny decided to pay a visit and brought along
some friends..

The flowers frame her lovely so I gave them some glossy accents
to highlight the colour..  I then fussy cut the Easter Bunny and
chickens and used 3D foam tape
to give them some dimensions...
Back of the tag..

Tag 4...
Twinkle Toe Troll Town - Ville
Yes, I can imagine all my little Besties living in a town with
houses like this...

Finished Project... 

How gorgeous is this project, I loved creating it...

Love Clip Art - February Project AVSC

Hello lovely people,
'Love Clip Art'
 I thought I would combine project 2 with my little book I created
with the February Kit...
I love Clip Art, the things you can do with these are amazing and
what better way to show off these gorgeous stamps from Lawn Fawn
than to make paper clip art..
This little Octipi from Lawn Fawn is soooo cute..
I thought I would give him some bubble to let you know
he is saying Happy Valentines day..

How cute is this little chicken and she
is holding a heart for you..

I totally love this stamp, for some reason it speaks to me
and isn't the 'I Love You' gorgeous in pink ink..

 Here is the Paper Art Clips on the front page of my little book..
Don't you just love the washi tape from Pebbles..
These little cuties adorn the back of the little book,
and what a fantastic background these
Happy Mail stamps make...

Doesn't this look so cute together!!! 
 I love this combination as well..

Book finished with the Paper Clip Art now fixed inside...
