Journal Soup

I recently bought Kate Crane's Journal Soup part Deux and it was just the right thing to give me a creative kick! I've ordered some new paints because as much as I love my gelatos they just don't cut it for styles like this....see the mess below! For now I'm going to put them into a box but they will probably make it onto a card in the end!

Take a cheap bag from Penny's...and make it awesome!

Got this bag for €11 in Penny's, very 80's but very boring and not going to go with my dress that night so I decided to bling it up a bit!

I bought two hair flowers that were selling for 50c, bottle cap embellishment, chain is the long handle that came with the bag and stamped all over with stazon. I Luuuuuuuurvvve it, not very big though so enough for my phone and a lip gloss. Might make me show some restraint when I go out!

Has it really been 5 months since I blogged?

Slap on the wrist, I have been crafting but with a sick computer I found it hard to get onto my blog and wasn't really sure if anyone was out there and I was just talking to myself!
My sister got married so while waiting for her photos to develop it inspired me to re-do my own wedding album. I made the fatal flaw as a crafter that I made my wedding album my ...very..first...project. So you can only imagine, I would burn it if I didn't like to laugh at it so much!
 I bought a cheapo toaster for €11 in Tesco and the box screamed "Turn me into a mini albummmmm"
I started the cover of my sisters album who wants it clean but bitty but no gammy words or sentiments, like blending colours like above and want the page piled high with embellishments. Amy I love you but this is going to be a mammoth task. I might have it done for your ruby anniversary! So I will be posting the progress for the next 10 years or so, stay tuned

Still on my journal drive

After watching a Kathyrn Wheel video I was very inspired to create more in depth back grounds, the start of a new journal is also very daunting and I tend to panic!

Still working on the background here and didn't put as much effort into my lady and I feel you can really tell, but I love the back ground!

Suzi Blu inspired art journal pages

I got a Suzi Blu book for my birthday and I have to say I am loving the girls I am drawing with them!
Coloured with my new gelatos which I am so in love with it's ridiculous!
I did this while drinking a bottle of wine with my sister for my birthday, crafting and drinking what could go wrong! I gave her huge boobies and decided that rough texture paste piled on her head for hair would be a good idea... all in good fun though :)

Some Elephant Mama cards

I saw this stamp set and fell in love with it, I don't know why considering it's not my style! I stamped a load and coloured them in with my distress markers, made a few thank you cards and birthday cards for the influx of birthdays this month (6!!)

Did I ever tell you how much I hate spiral bound journals?

They are riculous!! They get in the way and look ugly, my next journal with my spineless and inspire me but now this thing needs to be hidden!

I saw this quote and thought it was gorgeous - Write your secrets in the sand and keep it safe with the mermaids. In RL the colours are very vibrant and her tail is so sparkly!

I got some gelatoooooossss and been having fun all night with them! Need some inspiration for them now :)

Zombie Pin-up valentines card

I saw a great idea on pinterest where pinups were zombified, keeping with tradition I made a zombie valentines for D. Coloured in with my distress markers and used my label maker for the title. Hope he likes it because I'm not buying him anything!

altered canvas and a tiled fimo box

Cute christmas photo I took of Eli and had a blank space in the wall so I covered an old canvas and gave it a new lease of life!
A fimo box I made for my mum, glad I took this photo before Eli turned it over so the tiles went everywhere!!

Journal page

Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none as Shakespear said. I needed some messy play and this hit the criteria perfectly :) need to highlight the words more but that's for another day!
