Paperbabe Challenge ~ #96 Spot and/or Stripes

Happy Summer Solstice creative friends
Welcome to Summer!

There's a NEW Blog Challenge over @ Paperbabe Stamps
and it's all about Spots and Stripes this fortnight..

After living under a rain cloud today the sun shines bright.
So let me share a project that like the weather has changed
it's face quite a few times before sitting down to rest.

Playing with the new Dinky Stamps and Templates it's very
easy for me to lose myself in the colouring and shading.

From an A5 journal page i've traced around the cover of a 
found small notebook to give me the correct measurements.

The bow template tidy's up her rag tail hair and can you see the 
Doodle Stars in spots and stripes that decorate her Summery T...

Cut down to size my Dinky Journal cover is complete. 

The inside is a work in progress but you may 
catch a glimpse of what's inside very soon...

Please pop over HERE and see what the Paperbabe Design Team 
have created this fortnight, we are all loving the NEW Dinky's. 

Wishing you all a little sunshine today.  

Creative Hugs & Best Wishes 
Tracey xx

I'm playing along with:

World Wide Open Design Team ~ Challenge #06

What a great project. I can see why you would fall in love with the dinkies. This turned out great. LOVE it, Tracey.

I was watching Kim on TV and when this project was shown I just knew it was yours Tracey! She is a real beauty with her silvery hair and eyelids. Your colouring, as always is superb, the bows are such a wonderful addition. I love the ethereal look of the whole image - a stunning cover!

We have sunshine again today, I hope you have too and that you have a lovely weekend!
Hugs, Anne xx

Hi there Tracey... lovely to see your latest project, it's gorgeous and as a cover would certainly invite those pages to be opened!
So glad you were getting some sunshine - hope it continued. Great to catch up with you once more. Cheers! xx

Amazing colouring Tracey, wow you really are a master at it!! Love that silvery hair (bit like mine lol) and the way you have picked up the colour with the eyelids too. Those ribbons in that softish pink look great also.
Happy Sunday! xxx

Cath Wilson said...

I love this, Tracey. I think Alison put it well (above) - it's a soothing piece, somehow...speaking of serenity and a peaceful beauty. Gorgeous shading.

This is so magnificent, Tracey! When I think of the talent you have it just blows my mind! This girl is so sweet and I love her hair! You do the best job of coloring and shading, and she looks fabulous on this notebook. Looking forward to seeing what's inside! Biggest congratulations on being a Top Pick at CC!
