Getting crafty with Julia Watts

Sorry again to my followers I seemed to have slipped by the wayside again. To be honest I haven’t been crafting a great deal lately what with work and family I really haven’t had the time. I have to make an effort and make the time, hopefully this should be a little easier as I am going to be spending some time with my Mum soon so it will be fun to craft together.
I did spend yesterday afternoon having some “me” time at the Paperterie in Aberdeen, I watched Sue Wilson do a couple of demos (and hopefully helped her with her camera) and then spent a couple of hours in a workshop with Julia Watts where we made this wonderful card.

I had a great time and was very pleased with my results. Thank you to both Sue and Julia for coming all the way up to Aberdeen and to the Papeterie for hosting the event.

Frog on a blog

As a few of you may know, I like to watch shows on Create and Craft TV and last week was no exception. On Saturday, the lovely talented Kathryn Sturrock was doing a show with clay, I am so glad I recorded it because she made the cutest frog. I decided that I would have a go at recreating it and here is the result:

Clay Frog

I realise he is a bit old looking as the clay had dried out a little bit but I think he is quite cute and not bad for a first attempt. I cant wait to get the cloud clay I ordered so I can see what the difference is between that and the Martha Stewart clay that I used here.

If you get the chance to see Kathryn demo then do watch as she explains things really well and does a really good job.

R is for Roses are red with SplodgeAway

Roses Are Red card using mask from SplodgeAway

Well ok they are not roses, but they are red ­čÖé When I started to colour this Bugaboo image , I had them in yellow, then I remembered that for the new challenge over at ABC challenges, they should be red, so I ended up colouring over the top. Thank goodness for Copic pens! I used a mask from SplodgeAway to make the background.

When you have done here pop over to the SplodgeAway blog and see what the rest of the DT created as all the samples were awesome. Here are the samples I created for the show.

First up we have the Bulldog, Light bulb and Drips from the Altered Art Kit

This one was simply inked through with Black Soot distress ink onto some backing paper:

Friday Sketch challenge goes for a Walk in the Coutryside

A Walk in the Countryside

My DT card for the Friday Sketch Challenge this week features items from A Walk in the Countryside CD. I purchased this a while ago when it was on Create and Craft but have not used it up until now.

A Walk in the Countryside

The main image has been triple embossed and all the papers, image and embellishments are from the CD, except the leaves, which are cut using a new Crafts Too die available at Cullen Crafts. The Thank You stamp is from the Chronology Freebie set that came with the Docrafts Magazine.

Toread Autumn postcards

Toread Post Card

I fell in love with these little Toread characters as soon as I saw them, they are just too cute (so much so I ordered 3 more stamps). Here are 2 postcards I made for a swap using the stamps I got with the CD (when it was on Create and Craft). I sprayed some kraft card with a  pearly mist spray and then cut some leaves using a cuttlebug die. I ran the leaves through various embossing folders to give them some texture and glued them randomly on the card around the cut out Toread character (who were coloured with Copic pens ).
