Three tag made with my crafting friends.
We love meeting up each week & are eager to show each other what we have been working on all week since our last meeting.
Our challenge that we had set last week was to each make a tag using some Dylusion images of legs & heads .
Sue did the left one , mine is the middle one, & Sheila did the right one.

It's Wednesday already so that means it's time to join in the fun over at Julia's place for Whats on your work desk wednesday. where you show the world what you have on your desk .

So this little pile on my desk is a page from my art journal.
The page i already had painted up last week with acrylic paint dabbers , Pool, Hazelwood , & white through a stencil.
Yesterday i sprayed some Dylusions ink on some paper & stamped some images onto the paper once it was dry.
I've cut the images out ready to arrange on my page.
I've placed the stamp next to my page so you can see what stamps i've used before i them up anymore.

Scrapbook Layout

Over on ukscrapers the weekly challenge is to use on you LO's circles &  places, & to add something that is gold , silver,or bronze.
I've no idea what make of this is because i've had it for so long, but i felt it would go well with the theme. I've used Tim Holtzs on the egde die to make my pocket & to edge my photo. I cut two  circles then embossed them . I then went over them with Achival Brilliance Galaxy gold.
It's such a pity that the photo does'nt show up the lovely shine from this ink on my paper.
The flowers are Prima , i've also added some silver & a glod brad.
I've enjoyed making this LO .

Birthday Card

I've just finished making this very cute birthday card.   The papers used are from a Martha Stewards paper pad i've has for a while & the stamped image was given to me ages ago from a swap i was in. The image is a High Hopes one. I've used a Spellbinders edgeabilities on  the top sheet of patterned paper & used a piece of muilt coloured ribbon as well.  The colour of the self adhesive Kaiser craft pearls are Chino. to finish of the card I've used a couple of flower brads & a Prima butterfly.

journal page

I think i got a bit carried away with the colour pink on this page for my Journal, which i now find all a bit strange because i like Blue really.
The back ground is done using Dylusions spray inks.
A napkin/serviettes  was used for the words & the pink daisies, this i got from my crafting friend Sue, So thanks Sue for the idea & Napkin.
Dylusions stamps for most of the insects & leaves.
The leaves have been filled in with bubble gum pink.

Whats on your work desk wednesday is something that happens every week over at Julia's place . Crafters from around the world show what lovely crafting project they have on their desks.
So this is my desk this morning. I'm still working on another journal page . My back ground was made using Dylusions spray inks & gesso scraped through a stencil. Over that i stamped a Wendy Veich Studio 490 stamp & coloured it using the Dewrent water colour sticks.
The large bottle on the right is another Wendy Veich stamp & the small bottles on the left are Paperartsy stamps which have been stamped onto white paper and then coloured using Sakura gelly roll pens.
At the moment the bottles are'nt stuck down & i think i might even stamp some more little bottles .
Now you've seen my desk why not join me over at Julia's and show off your desk.

Journal page

A journal page using kitchen roll as my back ground.            The colours on this sheet of  kitchen roll were made when i've sprayed Dylusions inks & then you roll the kitchen roll over the page to take off the excess ink .  I'd thrown this piece in the bin & had thrown on top a baby wipe  and did'nt think no more of it, until the next day i'd notice that a lovely pattern had formed on the kitchen roll sheet because the baby wipe had kept the kitchen roll sheet moist & the inks had spread & bleed together.     I stuck the sheet down on my page . I used my Dylusions stamps to stamp the images onto paper then coloured the images with Derwent water colour sticks, cut out & stuck the images on my page.  The text i typed out on the computer & printed out. The little moon was a free image from the Land of nod.

Note Books

Been busy making two books with my BIA the last few days.
The one on the left is mine & i'm going to use it to stamp some images in so i've alway got some ready to use & colour in when in a rush.
It was'nt one of my bright ideas it was my friend Sheila who brought a book & decided to have stamped images in it, so thanks Sheila its a great idea.
The one on the right is a note book i've made for a friend so i'm hoping she'll like it & it will put a smile on her face everytime she uses it.

The stamps i've used are Crafty Individauls CI-278 . All stamped images have been coloured with Derwent Aquatone water colour sticks.
I had some real sand which i've used & some bits from my potpourri.
