Singing in the Rain

and playing along at Time Out

Hi Everybody,

thanks so much for your lovely comments, they are all very much appreciated.

Hope you like my new look! If you’re looking for my pages/sidebar, simply click the little circles at the top and there they are. It needs a bit more tidying and re-organizing, but I like it. How about you? Please let me know …

Over the last few days I have been trying something new in the way of editing photos. I downloaded an app for my phone called Pixlr Express, you might have seen the recent pictures I posted on Facebook, it’s a lot of fun. Well I’m now having a go at trying out different ways of posting my pictures on WordPress too.

I simply took my picture with my mobile instead of my separate camera, edited my pic using my pixlr app and was able to upload it directly to my library on WordPress … Yeah!!!

Cardmaking & Papercraft had a post on their Facebook page yesterday about the importance of watermarking the pictures of one’s work. Well following on from that too, I decided to make my watermark larger.

Here is what I ended up with:


Still a bit of fine tuning to do, but very pleased with my first attempt!

Yes, I would like to enter this card in the Dancing in the Rain Challenge at TIME OUT.

I came across this little turtle whilst searching for some digis to use for some DT projects. I found this little cutie here at QKR Stampede and found her/him irresistable. Exactly that’s why! It is one of those digis that can be used very flexibly for male – female – young – old the choice is yours.

She turned out to be female for this one more out of my own curiosity, when, after I had already coloured her in, I used a pale pink brush marker to give her some eye shadow followed by red lips and finger nails with added glitter on her shell for the glam effect.

I then simply stamped my sentiment, die cut and embossed some yellow card and added some faux stitching. I then layered my image on artichoke card stock, added my doily and my promarker coloured floral corner, which I cut over the weekend using my eclips, layered everything as shown and finished off by adding some sequins, a bargain buy from Poundland on Monday. 🙂

That’s another story …

Back Soon, until then …

Happy Crafting!!! 🙂
