Write Your Own Story

Welcome back! The new Mini Challenge at More Than Words is to use the word STORY on your card, tag, ATC or postcard.

I made a card:

I already had the little man sitting on my desk so this card came together so quickly. I just added the background papers from Lisa Oxley's Bright & Bold stack over at ArtStacks. I wrote my title on the rainbow, which is also from Lisa's stack, added a border and I was done!

Will you join the challenge this month? You can find the details here.

Happy creating!

Framed at Kraft +

Hello and welcome back!

Have you seen the new challenge at Kraft+ yet? The challenge is to get 'Framed'. Oh there are so many cool options for this one!

I was walking the other day and spied these stunning Rainbow Lorikeets eating the brilliant red blossom in a red flowering gum. The colours were so striking that I just had to create about them.

I'm a bit smitten with the papers in Lisa Oxley's new packs over at ArtStacks. I loved this particular page so much that I just added the whole page to my kraft background. The kraft really made the vivid colours pop! 

The rainbow, which is from the same Bright & Bold Stack as the main paper, was a perfect touch for my Rainbow Lorikeets.

I used a Dusty Attic chippie frame around my pic. This one is one I designed for a class a while ago. 

Will you join us this month? Head here for more info on how to enter.

Happy krafting!

Tags and Pockets

Gosh -I've been so busy lately I've hardly had a chance to create!

I did finally get to the craft room though as it's time again for the new challenge over at More Than Words. The challenge this month is to use tags or pockets on your art journal page. I had those two words (tags and pocket) running through my mind when suddenly the lyrics to this song popped into my head. They were perfect - they have both tags AND pocket! I had a blast making this. I used the new ArtStacks packs by Lisa Oxley. I think I'm in love!

Aren't the colours just amazing? The pink canvas is from Lisa's Floral Fetish stack and the stunning harlequin paper and the paint swatches are from her Bright and Bold stack. The leaves, butterflies and heart are all cut or punched from the sensational background page, also from the Bright and Bold stack.

I hope you can join us at More Than Words this month! You can find the challenge here.

Happy art journaling!
