Digital Art... Collage Fun

Hi everyone, this is my very latest digital art piece. A collage style, with lots of blending.

I have found myself doing some more hands on crafting recently too, trying to improve my knitting. 
Following patterns and remembering what I just did has been quite tricky. 

I will charge up the camera soon, take some pictures of items made to show on the blog in a future post.

Sending everyone crafty hugs

Awakening...Digital Art Piece

I often end up creating quite random digital art from thoughts in my head.
This is called 'Awakening' 

Credit to Foxeysquirrel for the elements I used to create this.
It has some charcoal effects added using topaz adjust software.

Digital Art and Home Decor - Fun

Hi everyone...
I have been enjoying working on some Digital Art projects 
and cardmaking for family and friends Birthdays.

I designed a couple of new art pieces (wall art) for our house.
Just taking my time and playing with ideas. 

For our bathroom I made this piece with credit to Foxeysquirrel and Vintaj (Designers) for elements and papers used . I upcycled an old silver coloured frame and it looks great in there.

For our dining room we had bought a new clock and I used the colour palette of that as my inspiration for this piece...Lots of blending, layering and soft hue effects for the finished piece which is framed in a beautiful white frame.

Lastly for this post it's my brother David's Birthday today and I made this card for him.
 Digikits used to create this design were
Make a Wish & Kitschy Kitchen - Sahlin Studios, Pin up Sweethearts - Daisytrail

I have a few more projects underway... 
so when time permits will share what has been happening on the blog.

2017...A year of possibilities

Hi Everyone, Rob and I spent New Year with family in Somerset which was enjoyable. Along with long walks on the beach wrapped up warm and Poppy dog being as zany as ever. 

Wishing everyone a Happy 2017

It seems to have taken me awhile to get back into the swing of things upon our return but with the cold weather outside I have been enjoying a little digital play this afternoon.
Yes you may have guessed that with Valentine's looming it would be love themed. 

Here is a layout created using a few kits combined.... 
Angie Hinksman - Heartfelt
Daisytrail - Parchment Flourishes 
Intermixture - Algera Designs
Some colour edits, transparency effects, blending and shadow added.

So here's to a creative and adventurous year ahead

Handmade Christmas Projects

** Merry Nearly Christmas **

Today I am showing a couple of handmade things I created this season

A little shabby chic shaped hanging decoration
I crocheted some flower shapes and added mixed buttons.
Arranged and stitched them onto a triangle of felt.
Interspersed  twists of natural vintage style ribbon to add detail.
Then glued a 2nd triangle on the back to hide all the stitching.

A mini mixed media canvas
I made the frames using air dry clay and a mold.
When dry they were painted gold and glittered.
Painted and glittered a small canvas as the background.
Added lace and card then arranged the frames on the canvas.
  Decorated with a  few little elements and some stick on lettering.

Hope you enjoyed seeing them.
Have a Sparkly Christmas everyone
Love & Hugs
