Pretty Flower Lady!

Sharon yet again sharing some more "inspiration" for you with one of the new release images for April - "Pretty Flower Lady" - available at the store!
I just love creating journal pages and this image was so striking that I decided to print her out at a decent size and really make her the focus of the page.
Page background is a mix of acrylic paint, sprays and stamping along with texture paste and a flower stencil I made on my Cameo Silhouette. Flower Lady coloured with Copic Markers and fussy cut and then mounted onto the page for a bit of dimension.
Love the colours on the page and the overall effect. Always satisfying when a page turns out as you imagined!!
Hope you are all happily crafting!
Make sure to visit the Store for more new images and to grab your favourites!

Cute Goth Girl with Teddy - Inspiration from Maureen

Good morning! It's Maureen here to share my Inspiration with you for April! I have coloured the 'Cute Goth Girl with Teddy' image using Promarkers and have coloured the background here too. 
My papers are 12x12" Scrapbook papers from Stampin' Up which I've cut down for use on a C5 card blank. I fussy cut a frame from the center of one of the papers to use as the main embellishment for the card. I've used other papers from the same set and added a Martha Stewart rosette and some die cut bats and spiders.
Thanks for looking!

Hipster girl inspiration with Bettina

Bettina here today and it is my turn to show a little inspiration piece that I made. I did go all winter on this one as we can't have too many Christmas cards. Right?? Hope you'll like it.

I've used Hipster girl for my piece and you can find her here. I also teamed her with some TH snowflake edge die and used my new Go Kreate die for the card shape. She's coloured with my promarkers. I will have more details in my blog for you a bit later today. Hope you liked it!

Zombie Lady Portrait - Crafting Vicky

Hello everyone! I've gotten totally HOOKED to doing some mixed media!  It's so fun and dirty lol  For this inspiration post I'm sharing something I made using  Zombie Lady.  I thought she would be perfect for my little altered children book about coffee!

Let's be honest... lots of us would look like zombies if we didn't have some coffee in the morning... and even then bwahahahaha

And here's a closer look at the great digi that I colored with my copics.

So do you think that she needs her coffee?!?  I would be giving it to her to make sure that she got away from me lol.  You can check out all the details on how I made this on my blog.

Hope you have liked my inspiration for you go and check out the fabulous digis in the store.

Have a great Sunday everyone!

Fairy Stamp with Butterfly Wings from Holley

Here's an awesome fairy from Sls Lines.  She's called Fairy stamp with butterfly wings.  I just had to show this beauty from SLS lines as I often tend to pick her funny/quirky images as that is what I love.  This artist also does the most beautiful images as well.  I did her in some non-traditional olive style mixed with pink.  She's just gorgeous.

Check out all her beautiful images, as well as those fun and quirky images that you know I love!!

Also, I just found out that she's going to be doing some custom drawn stamps!  WOW, how cool is that!?!  have you ever wanted a stamp of yourself?  of your DH? your kiddo? your pet?  check out this sample she has here

Cheers, Holley

A Vintage Beauty....

Sharon here again sharing another "nude" digi creation as inspiration for you today!
This gorgeous pin-up gal is available to purchase in the Etsy Store - click here for direct link. I just love colouring these beautiful pin-ups and they are so tastefully drawn.

I used texture paste and a homemade stencil to add some depth to the background of my journal page. And the beautiful pastel colouring is from my new "Lindy's Stamp Gang" Flat Fabio Sprays - aren't they beautiful? While the texture paste was wet I added some little pearl coloured beads to the page for more interest as well as adding some subtle circles with a spray cap.

Quote was found at the Quote Garden Site - my favourite site for finding the perfect quote/saying to go with my creations!

Hope you found a bit of inspiration!

Happy crafting & don't forget our Current Challenge is Anything Goes - we would love to see your SLS Lines creations!!!

Bella Journal Page

Hi Everyone!
Sharon here with an "inspiration" post for you to start the month off with a little "daring"!!!

A few months ago I shared another "nude" image available at the store and I hadn't used this gorgeous gal so a perfect excuse to create something a little "risqué" for my post today!
Remember you can purchase 2 of the nude images from the store or if you want the set the "colouring book" is available for you to nab!!!
Lots of wonderful & tasteful ladies to create with!
These days I tend to do more creating on my journals than anything else - it allows me to experiment more with mixed media.
This page uses some of "Tim Holtz's " Tissue paper as the background - really love this design! I did a bit of a wash over it with thinned down acrylic paint, "spotted" the page with black paint and then added the digi which I coloured with Copic Markers. I also cut the "Bella" wording from my Silhouette and added to the bottom of the page. It's a bit hard to see but she is "sitting" on a piece of black mesh netting just to finish the page off!
Make sure you are a follower at the Etsy Store so you can keep up to date with all the wonderful and inspiring new images and also here at the Blog where the DT share their creations!!
Happy Creating!!

Tired mom and pretty girl :)


Today I have a new card for you :) On the front side I have used 'Tired mom' and on the back side I have used 'Pretty girl'.

Do also remember to join the challenge at SLS this month - you still have some time :)

April inspiration from Susan R...

Hi it's Susan R here again with another inspiration for you...

Look at this great Jester image in the Etsy Store.

A Jester is a professional clown employed to entertain a king or nobleman in the middle ages. Also referred to as a fool, buffoon or clown. The Medieval jesters of the Middle Ages can be compared to the circus clowns of today.

As it is All Fools' Day today I thought I would use this 'fool' on a tag

There are more details on my blog here

Hope it will inspire you to join in the latest Challenge...

Happy Crafting!
