The Tweedles

I've used Tweedle Dum and Dee from The Octopode Factory collection of rubberstamps for this week's sample over on Tagalong!

Even though I made my tag for last week's theme, I never had the time to photograph it and put it online so here it is now...

This week on SPA, Tracey has chosen the theme of ALIENS.... this is a cut and paste using Hidden Vintage Studios Alienated kit from Deviant Scrap.

I had to add the words digitally as my printer has fun out of ink :-( the rest though is totally handmade using paints, stencils, glitter texture paste (swoon), stamps and collage images.

Holiday Times with Little A

Little A and I have just come back from Marmaris in Turkey. My spiritual home. I love Turkey, although I was surprised at home westernised it has become in the last few years.

A word in your ear....

I love Quotes, which is why I've chosen the theme for TAGALONG this week. A quote makes your artwork and can be funny, profound and downright cheesy! Gotta love em.

come over and tagalong with us

Fun Times

Yesterday, I had such a productive day. I had to get all my projects up to date as I'm off on my jollies with Amber on Thursday. I also had a special guest over at Octopode Towers who joined in with making a tag ;-)

Crowabout over on DeviantScrap have a new kit out ~ Black, White and Gold.... here's the tag I made with the new images.

I love working with Nancy's images, they speak to my soul ;-)

A little gothic magic

Here's my project for That's Crafty this week.... I've had this set of stamps since my birthday last year and felt I needed a bit of Hallowe'en cheer this week.

 All the stamps I've used are available over on That's Crafty.... it's an amazing online shop full of wonderful goodies AND free postage when you spend over £20

This is my project for last week :-)
