A little clearer or different? Freebies

Edwina said she wished one of the ladies I gave away last week was a little clearer.  I was dubious about posting her as she is pretty, but was of very low resolution, so I decided to have another go.  These are the results:

This one is a little clearer.

This one is a little funky!

Well, what have we here?  A spot of plastic surgery perhaps?
Do tell me which one you like and see you soon x

Free on Friday 7 October 2016

A very big welcome to Free on Friday, I have some beautiful ladies for you today and I hope you enjoy them.  I have spent the last few days sorting my laptop out, my filing has completely gone to pot so I downloaded a duplicate file finder because I knew I had doubles - well it turned out I had not only doubles, but trebles and on up to seven copies of some files!  Note to self - be more careful in future!

Have a great weekend and see you soon x

New Digital Stamps on the way

The other day I was asked if I was still doing Digital Stamps and what sort did I do.  I said I would do a page on my blog, but when I looked at my previous digital stamps I decided to redo some of them.  Here is the first one I have redone, my peace Angel:

The original one came with and without wings.  I am not sure if I have finished with this one yet, what do you think of her so far?

Fun in the craftrrom

I have been having so much fun in my craft room recently.  I am slightly disorganised when it comes to entering challenges - okay I am slightly disorganised over most things :)  I have been trying to enter "Twisted Thursdays" Challenge at The Outlawz.  The challenge is "Anything Goes" but it has a different twist each week which is optional.  Last week I made the quickest card ever as I was determined to enter!  I spent a lot more time on my two cards for this week.

Quickest ever card!

I started off making two four inch square backgrounds.  Basically I used flower die cuts to cover the area without overlapping, then I used my texture paste over it all followed by pink acrylic paint Next I used a brayer to roll purple paint over both of them.  You can see that the texture paste makes the paint patchy and of course the brayer doesn't go on the background as the flowers are raised.  I added a few items that I had already done and used a lovely paper from Gorjuss for the background.  

I was so pleased with the way the backgrounds turned out I started another today.  This time I overlapped the flowers and added some hessian butterflies.  I used gesso this time instead of texture paste.

I hope to finish this tomorrow or at least get a few stages further!

Free on Friday 30 September 2016

Welcome to Free on Friday as we say goodbye to September.  October 1st tomorrow!  I went to a garden centre today and the Christmas decorations were half way up.  They had a white section which looked lovely and made me think of weddings.  My husband's niece gets married next year and he has been busy making signs, such as Car Park, Way In.  He has also made a heart which is going to have "Best day ever" and the date on it.

 A frog in my new pond and below flowers on my new plant :)

Enjoy today's freebies :

Do let me know what you think of these weird ones x
