Northern Trees

Hey, I thought I would pop in with some inspiration & a great technique that I've been meaning to try for sometime!! What I have created fitted in nicely with the challenge at Global Design Project here is the theme:

I eventually got round to doing this 'Northern Lights Technique' & quickly fell in love with it, even my class attendees enjoyed themselves & really want me to do it again! So I'm sharing this with you:


A little close up:


Thanks for popping over to my blog & I hope this has inspired you to attempt this technique! It is so simple & effective have a go yourself!! 

See you soon,

Birthday Blooms

Hey There! I thought I would pop in with a  great colour challenge that the Global Design Project are running. I really love these colours that they put together for this challenge. Bermuda Bay being my fave colour!! So this is the colours that the design team picked:


I thought I would do something a little different & do use the Birthday Blooms stamp set by using the neutral as the stems rather than a green! I really like changing colours for something a little different, here is what I created: 


I then didn't have enough Early Espresso card stock when I was running my class so used the Tangelo Twist for the backing, here is how that came out: 


I just coloured them in with blender pens & for the stems & leaves I did dark for the big leaves on the bloom stamp & then went in lighter with the other leaves & stems. I wanted to show that contrast of stems & leaves. 


A little tip, I stamped the bloom image on a post it note twice as well as a single flower, which I then put over the stamped image to then stamp next to one another. 

Thanks for popping in to see what I created, see you soon,
