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!
Hugs,
Tanya

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,
Tanya

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,
Tanya

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!

Work in progress

Hello,

I am working my way through a couple of  my art journals.  One of the things I use allot  of are paper towels.  They are used to soak up the extra Ink Spray on my pages.  I hate wasting things so I took a paper towel that was soaked in the red ink, and mod podged it to my page.  I then took out my DoodleFactory and Sweet Pea stamps and started creating.  

This is a work in progress, so I will eventually post the finished project.  


Happy Krafting!
Hugs,
Tanya

Life Tree Journal 52 Prompt12

Hello,

I was perusing the various blogs and came across Willowing Arts "Tree of Life" free tutorial found HERE.  It also corresponds to Journal 52's prompt #12: Inspiration.  So many artists out there, so many visual creations to charge me up and inspire me to create.

I used my washi tape and pencils.  I was never fond of swings, but I loved jump rope, so I adapted my "Tree of Life" towards my childhood.  I used gloss medium to finish it off, thus the shine.  In order to stop the pages from sticking together, as this is a page in my art journal, I rubbed a candle over the dry image.  A tip I found somewhere in blogger land!  IT WORKS!

Thank you Tam for being my inspiration for this page.  I have read many of times, that if I practice drawing, and even using other artist's techniques (being sure to credit them), that I will eventually come up with my own style.

Week 10 Coloring Page Prompt- Journal 52

These are my creations for Journal 52's Week 10 Prompt.  Coloring!  I simply took subjects from my daughter's interests and put them onto paper.  

When we are waiting for an appointment, or the girls get bored, they can color in the ones I left blank.

Happy Krafting!
Hugs,
Tanya
