Aurora Wings Challenge - A Touch of Darkness


There's a new monthly challenge starting over at Aurora Wings Challenges and it's......


I've used the STUNNING Secret Kiss (Dark Goth Mermaid with Skull) and printed her out onto some Bearly Mine Designs digital paper before colouring her in. I had meant to colour her up a little darker but some days my copics seem to have a mind of their own and she ended up in shades of gold and teal. 

Don't forget to check out the rest of the AMAZING DT inspiration on our BLOGWe also have a very active Facebook Fan Group with additional contests, challenges and inspiration.  We hope to see you there.

Using Washi Tape in La-La Land


This week in La-La Land we are playing with Washi Tape. I used 3 different patterned tapes and stuck them to my card on an angle to create a fun background. A very simple technique but it added a great effect, especially for a boy's card. A die cut sentiment and snowflakes finished off a fairly CAS design.

It's All About Dad at Make it Crafty


This weekend we Aussies are celebrating Father's Day and Make it Crafty have brought a fun new line of Dad images out to celebrate - check them all out HERE. There are not only dads but kids and scenes to play with. I've mixed 3 of the images - Gamer Dad, Gamer Girl and Gamer Boy - but you can also get all 3 in a bundle HERE. These 3 represent my own family and I love seeing them all play together - although with my daughter living overseas it's something I miss. 

I have merged the images onto 2 different patterned digi papers from Bearly Mine Designs. I butted them together to give the impression of wallpaper and a floor. I love doing this with my digis as it sets a scene before I even start to colour.

Happy Father's Day to ALL the dads out there - hope you have some fun with YOUR family :)

Copics Used - Skin {E11, E04, E00, E000, R22, R20, R11} plus R39, R27, R24, R22, Y21, Y19, T6, T4, E18, E15, E13, C10, C8, C7, C6, C4, C2, BG99, BG96, BG93, B99, B97, B95, B93, B91, G7, G5, G00, 100

Sketch Time in La-La Land


This week in La-La Land we are creating using this sketch. I am in need of a few boy's cards so Luka came out to play again. I used some simple banners, enamel dots, glittery chipboard letters and die cuts to put together a little scene for Luka - I am quite happy with how bright and fun it turned out :)

It's Back to School in La-La Land


This week in La-La Land we are celebrating Back to School. For us Aussies this is a strange time of year to celebrate this as our school year runs the same as the calendar year. 

I chose to use Retro Luka - maybe because we were watching Grease the other day - LOL. I typed out and printed off the sentiment on my computer and added texture with dies and embossing.

La-La Land August 2014 Club Kit Showcase



There's something new in La-La Land - a CLUB kit! It's a monthly subscription based club which has 2 different options - a PRODUCT kit or a PROJECT kit. You can find all the information HERE. Just note that Club products (stamps and dies) will not be available for purchase outside of the kits until 12 months after the release!!!

 Each Tuesday members of the La-La Land DT will be showcasing projects using the current kits. Today is the launch of these showcases and how excited am I to be kicking them off with my 2 projects! 


My first project showcases a few of the stamps only - no dies on here - simply a masked scene with some colour and a twine bow :)


And for my second project I created a fish bowl shaped card on my Silhouette Cameo, layered on some die cuts and then popped the stamped images up using 3D foam pads.

Aurora Wings Challenge - Under the Sea


This month over at Aurora Wings Challenges our challenge is ......


I chose to use Mitzi's gorgeous Mermaid with Pearls in Kelp image. I have seen this coloured up a few times and was itching to get some colour onto her myself. Mitzi has some totally GORGEOUS mermaids and merboys in her collection which will suit every taste for this challenge. 

I have been asked HOW I colour these images up as they can look fairly daunting when you see the linework. But once you start adding colour they seem to come together. The trick is to just START! :)

Don't forget to check out the rest of the AMAZING DT inspiration on our BLOGWe also have a very active Facebook Fan Group with additional contests, challenges and inspiration.  We hope to see you there.
