Paperbabe #80 Anything Goes *Friendship*

Happy Friday everyone

It's time for another challenge over at Paperbabe Stamps 
with the favourite theme of many *Anything Goes*

Please pop over HERE and share your creativity with us,
you do not have to use Paperbabe stamps but if you do 
the prize will increase for one lucky winner.

Here's what I got up to and how it came to be..

Sometimes the hardest part when creating can be having no instruction.
Anything goes gives us freedom to explore and words often help me do this.

The line below is taken from the Poem Youth and Age by Samuel Taylor Coleridge 
and is included in the Tree Hugs Stamp set and is my own source
of inspiration for this journal page.

.

Using one of my Paperbabe WIP's created using the mini portrait templates, 
stamped facial features and blunt bangs she awaits further adaptation.


Onto a journal page I created a scene using the Tree Hugs Stamp set.
scribbling in areas of light and shade using neocolor II's.


Deli paper applied with matt medium helps add texture to that flat page.


Acrylics are painted over the Deli paper and spritzed with water to move the paint 
around, repeating the process when dry until happy with the application.


What appears to be birds in the sky is actually two hands holding.
A genius little stamp included in the set.


After adding more colour to the tree tops I stamped in those two nesting birds 
and rounded off the area of light surrounding to form the Sun or Moon 
which every you choose to see. 


Luminance pencils help create a Unicorn effect to the hair colour.


Cut out and applied to the page, black pencil is used heavily to outline each area.

My Paperbabe Journal Page is complete.


Friendship is such a beautiful thing and we are blessed if we have 
friends that we can count on during our life time... I know I do..

Wishing you a wonderful week
and much creativity.

Hugs Tracey xx

WOYWW #480

WOYWW #480

As if by magic another Wednesday appears and it's time to share what's on our
workspace and peep at other's courtesy of Julia over at her stamping ground.

There's not been much creativity on this space
in fact it's hardly changed over the past few weeks.

That's all set to change in a week or two
and surely upset the Craft Cart..


Here's a glance of the quickest Anniversary card I've ever made 
using some super thick mirror card, staZon & a ball tool. 

Funny that Claritystamp are celebrating their 25th year too.

Sweet, symbolic and nothing Beer related on this one.
Just need to add some soppy words now awww...

Thank you for all the early Anniversary wishes, it's officially tomorrow xx


After the silliest of things that caused chaos last week I can report that some
have been fixed, some still waiting to be fixed and others totally unfixable.

Non the less after my washing machine stopped mid wash and started flashing
FO5 at me I wasn't sure whether this was an insult or indication it had just had enough..
Google sure was my friend that day (other search engines are readily accessible)
 as it taught me how to empty, unblock & resume that wash...

There is light at the end of that wash basket after all.
I'll keep you all posted on the craft cart..

Look forward to seeing WOYWW #480

Creative Wishes
Tracey xx
