Journal 52 Prompt # 15



Journal Prompt # 15 was Collage.  

My girls LOVE to draw and I have a hard time throwing the pictures out.  So what I decided to do was take those drawings, color them in, and glue them into my art Journal.  The drawings had to be cut up in order to fit them in, but I think I did a good job creating a scene for both pages.

 Thank you Miss K and Miss J for always gifting me with your loving pieces of art.

Happy Krafting,

Uni-ball ONYX pen


Good Morning,

Can you tell that May is a busy month in my house!  No posts. But plenty going on.  Here is another pen sketch with my favorite type of pen.  The Uni-ball ONYX pen.  

Sometimes I need to sketch, so I look at images on Google, and begin sketching them.  It is fun, and a good way to practice shading, and depth.

Hope you are having a good day,
Happy Krafting,
Hugs

Be Fabulous! Do you want me to send you Happy Mail?


Good Morning,

This is one of Lily Chilvers Octopode Factory SteamPunk stamps.  She is such an amazing artist.  I adore her style.  

This was another 4 x 4 card made to send out in snail mail land, and end up in someones mailbox.  I love sending happy mail.  Don't you?

If you want me to send you some Happy Mail please let me know.  Leave me your contact information and I will get your address and send you some!

How fun is that?  No strings attached.

Happy Krafting!

Does it?

Good Morning,

I was playing along with my inner craft circle, and was prompted to make something square.  I adore 4 x 4 cards.  Thus the above was created.  

I wanted to cheer myself up, so I used this funny sentiment, along with other Eat Cake Graphic Stamps.


Eat Cake Graphics stamps used:
1123-I Gwendaline’s ready for sun
1125-L Jimmie’s in charge of the hose
7024-G Ms. Sunshine
8106-D Watched pool (text)
9039-E Swimming pool

I hope the recipient of this card feels it's warmth, and has a good laugh.

Happy Krafting,
Hugs,

Flying By..........

Have you ever forgotten to post something?  Well I sure did.  The above was an ATC card made for Eat Cake Graphics using Crumbs, the flying mouse stamp. Along with Lawn Fawn's sentiment stamp.  

I love making little scenes with design paper, and I did just that.  Cutting out some of the buildings, and popping them up a bit.

What are you working on today?
Happy Krafting,

ATC trade for Stampotique



Hello! 

 A while back we were prompted to make Artist Trading Cards (ATC's) for 2 persons. The theme was "Nursery Rhymes" I chose to use the fun loving Stampotique Nerd Cat stamp.

I had purchased the Flow paper lovers book, and came across the vintage photo cardstock paper.  Thus I turned the lady into the Queen. 

This is how the above ATC's came about to depict the following Nursery Rhyme.

Pussy cat, pussy cat, where have you been?
I've been to London to see the fair Queen.
Pussy cat, pussy cat, what did you there?
I frightened a little mouse, under her chair.

The rhyme was first recorded by the composer and nursery rhyme collector James William Elliott in his National Nursery Rhymes and Nursery Songs (1870)

What is your favorite Nursery Rhyme?

Happy Krafting!
Hugs,
Tanya
