Kraft it Up :) :) :)

Hi Guys

This is my take on the October Kraft it Up challenge!!!! A totally fabulous site for Krafty Inspiration!!!

Photo by dQ

Ive used some fabulous Hambly Studios rub-ons and tape, American Crafts Thickers, and Studio Calico mist :) :) :)
Oh and Im thinking that the PP is Crate????

Cheers and happy Kraftiness :) xxx

Its not pretty but its workable :) :) :)

Hello Hello Guys :)

I often get asked what my studio looks like. I usually say its not pretty, and that I rarely show photos of it! So whats made me change my mind??? well Im not sure, but Ive kinda figured I am never going to have the studio of my dreams, and when you are in rented accommodation it is even harder. So with that in mind I set about spring cleaning, part of it LOL :). This is my 'spray booth' my arty area! I think it used to be a walk in pantry [the house I am in is very old].

If you look down in the bottom left hand corner of this pic you will see my air compressor for my Copic and air gun attachments. Natalie Mays amazing husband organised and put this together for me! Trev Rokz!!!!!

These black drawers are a bit of a fave for me, they are cheap and fit in with my woodgrain, black and red theme :) I have them all through out my studio in different configurations. They are just from the Discount store.

I was lucky to pick up the Tattered Angels racks second hand,...with the signs :) :) :)

This will be the cleanest it will probably be for a looooong time :) :)

Well thats it for the mo, I hope you are haven a great week :) :) :)

Imaginarium Designs :) :) :)

Hello Hello its me again LOL :)

I just wanted to share with you my Imaginarium Designs creativity for October. Using one of my fave colour combos at the moment and the most delicious Imaginarium butterflies :)

Photo taken by Tom Eggers

With the butterflies Ive just smeared them in white gesso [with my fingers] and then given them a light mist with Tattered Angels Chalkboard Glimmer Mist - Grape Ape :) The Red mist is Studio Calico :)

Also I just wanted to mention the brand of gesso I use, as I was asked by a reader recently, I just use the Mont Marte brand, it comes in a big tub and is reasonably priced [which is a good thing considering how much I use LOL], and the title is written using Sumi Ink [any that I can find :)] and a pen & nib :) Most other journaling I do is usually with a Uni Posca paint pen or Signo pen.

Cheers and I hope you are haven a great week :)

Masking, misting, stamping, drawing,.. just a few of my fave arty things :) :) :)

Hello Hello Guys :)

What did you get up to over the weekend???

When I wasn't working I did a little blog hop hop hoppppping! specifically I did The Crafters Workshop blog hop, which I found when I went to visit Julie's blog.

Soooo I got all inspired to play with my TCW's masks; the result is a little grungy type scrapping :) :) :) I used some scrap 12 x 12 backing from some PP pads, as backgrounds, did my masking and misting, and then put a gesso wash over the top. I must say I really rather like the effect :)

Love me a little freehand wire frame creating tooooo :)

As you can see from these last 2 layouts I used some fabulous Hambly Studio's overlay :) :) :)

Well that is me for the mo, I hope you have a great week

Cheers and happy misting, masking :)
