Colour Clash? – First Posted: Wednesday, June 22, 2011

Good Evening,

I have the second of my little framed scenes for you today and this time it’s a circle. I wouldn’t normally put such a vibrant pink and orange together but as the pink patterned paper is covered with orange flowers and leaves I thought what the hell and went with it. I followed a sketch by Deconstructing Jen for my layout, I paper pieced the kite and coloured the rest with copics. I’m finding that copics are not only awesome but do take a bit of working at to get the hang of, I’m starting to get some successful blending going on and although its not as easy to do as I imagined the results are so satisfying! I cut out some letters on my Craftrobo/Silhouette for my sentiment but rather liked the negative stencil effect it left behind so I opted to use that instead and backed it with some of the pink paper.

Framed Scenery – First Posted: Tuesday, June 21, 2011


I hope you are having a good day today. Life’s good here in the birdhouse, I got back on my exercise bike today after taking a week off due to a sore knee so I feel all accomplished and I’m very much looking forward to the second episode of Luther tonight, it’s the little things! lol. Now all I need is to figure out what to have for tea tonight, maybe roasted Mediterranean veg with something hmm, aaanyway…

I’ve been planning some little digi scenes framed by circles or squares so that whatever your chosen cutting systems are they should be quick and easy to cut out and add to your project. Not everyone has Spellbinders but most of us have some kind of paper trimmer and circle cutting system so for these at least I’ll stick to these 2 shapes. You may see a new section has popped up for these in the digi stamp section so you know you can expect a few of these. I have a hot air balloon scene for you today, I hope you like it.

I followed a sketch by Card Patterns for my card today, Stamp Somethings challenge was to use pretty papers and Craft your passion has a paper piecing challenge this week which was too tempting to ignore, I don’t often think to paper piece but I always love the results.
