Art Journalling for Craft Room

We had some gorgeous cat entries for our last challenge, at Craft Room  this time it's Annie's term to Host, here's what she has to say :

"we all have some old craft items in our stash and of course we have some new ones too............ so I would like you to make something which incorporates them both............not too hard............but you are required to list what you have used within your blog post, not just the link to our challenge to be in with a chance to win a prize. ( Please check out the New Pesky Rules to ensure that your entry/post qualifies to be in with a chance of winning) "

I have returned to my old faithful art journal, for a double spread, lots of old favs on here, but I've also used a new Indigo blu stamp set.

Cat Time at CRC

Christi's hosting her first theme at Craft Room Challenge and she's chosen Cats!! Now I don't have any cat stamps..... in fact I don't have much cat stuff at all. So once again I've gone digital ... with this cute cat girl!

Then I had a thought - why not turn it hybrid... so he's the digital card printed out and turned into a real card :-) Me thinks there could be a lot of milage in this... so watch this space!

Have a great fortnight.

Tattoo Art at Craft Room Challenge

I think Zoe has chosen probably one of the best themes ever for Craft Room Challenge- Tattoo Art with the added twist of a hand drawn element!

I can't tell you how excited I was by this theme! I love tattoos, although I don't have one myself, that might be something I might change one day....

hand drawn heart, banner and wings

Despite being very excited about the theme, this card is actually the 3rd I made until I was happy ;-)

I hand drew and coloured the heart, banner and wings, I then stamped and added transfers to the background and popped the heart on dimensions to give it a bit of lift.

Our sponsor for this challenge is Tando Creative with another great prize.

We have a new Dt member too, so make sure you check out what the Dt have come up with, we have a real varied inspiration from the theme!

Great theme...... but tricky for me as we are heading for mid winter here in New Zealand :-)

So I've pocket scrapbooked some photos from a holiday that was a while ago now, we took so many photos it's taking me a while to scrap them all!
