Raggy doll journal… this time it’s Jackie’s turn

So I am catching up on some projects but not entirely there yet. Hopefully by the end of the week I might have got there on all my projects outstanding. 

This is the latest raggy doll journal I’ve worked on and I had to use Leannes lovely background and go with the theme of face. 

I adore the colours and the way she has applied the paint. It really is quite scrumptious.  I decided to use a Paperbabe template to start my girl off and then used a variety of paint and pencils to colour her in. 

I added very little to the background as wanted to preserve as much of what Leanne had done.  I added some flicks of paint, a few pearl accents and the texture paste word down one side. The title is a Tim Holtz stickers and I added the flower and button to finish off the girl too. 

Happy with how this came out.  The next theme is Geometric shapes and I went a little bit crazy for the background I prepared for Lynn to finish.

Loving this collaborative project. It certainly pushes me to do something a bit different when using someone else’s backgrounds. 

Happy crafting!

Mixed media card class

Tonight it’s time for me and my friends to play card making mixed media style!  This time I decided to play with the large background stamps and see what I ended up with.

This one I made a Brusho background using Positively Chevron. Then stamped beautiful birdhouse by Claritystamps.

This time a distress ink blended background with water splodges and used the World Map with Sky’s the Limit stamps.

Next a painty tag using handcarved and summer silhouettes and some gorgeous silk trim.

Finally I used a stencil and stencil brushes to create this soft card.  I used the Dictionary stamp and then Awesomely Artistic stamps to finish in a mix of purples and browns.  Love the effect of the brush on the linen cardstock too.

So wonder how we will all get on making these at class… what I know will happen is that we will have fun and feel chilled out doing it!

Happy crafting!
