Still here…

I haven’t been blogging, but I’ve been playing…

Izzi (Grandaughter) day is one of those days when it’s impossible to get online, but they’re almost over now… my little darling starts school the week after next Sad smile

August Bank Holiday is always a good family time, though because it’s her Daddy’s birthday and this time is rather special because he will be 40 tomorrow!

Eeek! Where do the years go????

The party was yesterday, so here’s a snippet of my little Treasure.

Now, back to the artwork… I’ve been journalling and playing with watercolour…

This one’s à la Maremi… YouTube – pure watercolour play… lots of fun! I highly recommend it!

And here’s a card that’s a long way from my usual style, but I just felt like doing something a little different Smile

I have more cards to share, so I’ll be back soon…

Thanks for looking.

Can’t resist…?

I love techniques of all kinds, but I especially love resist techniques, and I really couldn’t resist playing around with simple clear embossing resist.

This one was for a Christmas in August mingle on KCUK.

I’m not over impressed with the next one and of course I found the stamp I really wanted to use when I’d already stamped it! That one says,

‘We’re all stars…we just twinkle at different times’

…and I agree wholheartedly with that sentiment.

There’s nothing subtle about the next one…

I photographed the inks I used when I’d finished sponging.

I’d like to enter this one into the Try it on Tuesday ‘In my Garden’ challenge’.

The next card was one I made earlier in the year, for the birthday of a very special friend!

Stampin’ up

I bought this set of stamps ages and ages ago (from Ebay) but didn’t really use them, so when I spotted them, I thought I’d have a little play and I love the results!

These two cards are from a set Mum brought me when over from NZ a few months ago… I didn’t find them easy to use but I played with them for a while, just messing, really.

There’s another one somewhere, but I don’t appear to have taken a photo.

Found it!

20170726_192247-1-1

This card is made with one of my all time favourite stamps – the grasses! I tried for a long time to get hold of it and since I have, I’ve used it a over and over again. One of my best ever buys, though you can only see a little of it here.

20170813_193038-1

And another I made a little while ago…

Plus, a drawing…

Gelli Plate Play

I decided I really ought to get to grips more with my gelli plate/s so I spent a little time with them, using stamps, stencils and ink. Needs more work but this was the result…

20170808_140135-1

20170808_135721-1-1

This one’s a small oval plate, used with a stencil – more clean and simple, other than that..

20170809_163955-1-1

More inky layer artwork…

20170212_172621-1

(Yes, these are some of my favourite stamps!!!)

I’ve been trying to link my new Blogger blog with my old account but the information just isn’t available to me. I can still access the blog, but no way of importing the information there. I have one more option to try but it will take a little while… scratch that – I just got into the old account and have updated my old blog – I’m so pleased to be able to access all the old info. Promise I’ll try to stay more up to date…Rolling on the floor laughing

INKY FINGERS

Thanks for looking… you’re appreciated.
