Pencils and Glitter Chalk

Hello Everyone Happy Saturday
a little late in the day but Iv've been a busy bee getting ahead with DT bits and Christmas cards
I really want to do another colouring page but I cant decide which one there are so many beauts that I want to colour
Have you checked them out yet - there so much more than colouring books!

For this card I  used a page from Colour Therapy 1 - Florabunda
Who just does'nt love butterflies??
I actually squealled when I saw this page

I cut out the center and added in
Serenity Fairy Kisses (mounted with foam pads for some depth
What a perfect match!!

"Just living is not enough," said the butterfly,
"one must have sunshine, freedom and a little flower."
- Hans Christian Andersen

I coloured with Lyra Rembrandt Polycolour Pencils
Using Black micron pen too
and then covered with sparkly chalk
I used Glamour dust on her wings
and white Graph'It Shake it Marker for fine detail

21 Today

Coooeeee Wednesday already???
I wanted to share with you a card that I have made using 
If you saw Monday's post you will see I have used the same image on an A4
and now as a card
The absolute blessing of this colouring book you can print out as many times as you wish, onto different card stock to fit your project and you can change the size to fit. Now if that is'nt enough you now have the option to buy smaller , maybe you only need the alpha to start 
Check out all the options on the link above

I have coloured this card using Graph'it markers, a nice selection of Pinks and the black . I have used the White Shake It to add smaller detail
I'm twenty-one today!
Twenty-one today!
I've got the key of the door!
Never been twenty-one before! 
(I can wish....)

The numbers are also from the main florabundle (along with an alpha I blogged yesterday) So you can really personalise anything you make

A, B, C

Hi Everyone, Happy Tuesday to you all
and what am I sharing today?
You want a clue??

A - B - C - D - E - F - G
H - I - J - K - L - M - N - O - P
Q - R - S - T - U and V,
W - X - Y and Z.
Now I know my A - B - C
Next time - won't you sing with me?

If you have been following my blog lately you will have learnt about the new love of my life, I was introduced to something brand new and delish! -  I really am totally smitten and addicted to......
I've literally gone from 4" digi's to colouring A4's!!!
Don't be alarmed , easy peasy in my head I break the A4 down into sections. Even easier with this I did one letter at a time !

These would look absolutly beautiful on a special Birthday card you could spell out a name , decoupage the butterflys , the list is endless - I've really so much I want to do and try

I made this A4 sheet from the stunning Alphabet on Florabunda
The first A4 I coloured with Graph'It Markers , Yesterdays was coloured with pencils and todays Alpha I did with Black micron pens , for the yellow I used Wink of stella (it really does twinkle in real life) I also added some splodges of glamour dust. So difficult to get a good photo of sparkle!
I'm a bit rubbish at zentangle but I do love it , my main aim to show you how versatile these Colour Therapys are and the best thing .......print it out as many times as you want (sshhhh this took me about 5 attempts but I was determined!)
Don't forget to keep popping by I will be sharing lots more from Florabunda
maybe a card tomorrow

Happy Sunday

Happy Sunday Everyone
I'm not normally posting on a Sunday but we have been having ton's of fun of late , making our  samples for our lovely boss lady Nikky's new colouring books
Colour Therapy

This sample is using the first one Florabunda

I printed out at A4 size and then just sat staring , thinking it would take me forever and I would not finish - my comfort zone is normally to colour a 4 inch digi!!   
 Haha Scatty's lost the plot  HELP!!!!!  Was I  now totally mad?  I like a challenge but this was something else

How wrong was I??

 I pulled up my Bridget Jones knickers and........
set to colour 
I loved it , it was so not daunting and I coloured it fairly quickly 
I loved it so much I did another 2x A'4's that I will share with you at later dates

I split it mentally into quarters and thats how I coloured it 
I coloured this one with my Graph'It markers and using my White Shake 'It for finer detail. 
I have'nt listed my colours used but there nearly all my favourite go to colours so if you want them just drop me a message 
The bluey background was done using shimmery chalks
I brought a really cheapo frame from e-bay 
and there you go
There really is so much more to a colouring book when you can print it out!
I can sing a rainbow!
Sing a rainbow!
Sing a rainbow too!

Okay I have'nt used all the colours of the rainbow but its a feel good song

Cup of Tea Anyone?

A second post from me today I really had to share this with you 
Did you see our lovely Nikky on Create and Craft yesterday?
If you missed the show you can catch it for a short time here, but be quick you really don't want to miss it!

The star of the show was without a doubt the new colouring book wow what an amazing idea
a colouring book you can print out - I had great fun colouring in using different mediums and making different things from the pages I shall be sharing my makes over the next few weeks
You can preview the  Colour Therapy books here
The other star of the show was Serenity I adore this character

This makes shows a teapot that I made 
I used Nikky's Teapot template from the store here
I cut the teapot onto some plain card a couple of times so its nice and sturdy,
I made a middle to join the teapot to make it into a box type - I just used a piece of plain card zigzagged it up for sticking tabs and voila
I'm a little teapot
Short and stout
Here is my handle
Here is my spout.
When I get all steamed up
Hear me shout
"Tip me over
and pour me out!'.

This song was originally posted at:
I then used paper from the Serenity collection 
and used the pre - coloured image of  Serenity Fairy cake
perfect for a TeaPot I thought
I finished it off with some bling.

Now a teapot wouldnt be anygood without any teabags
I used 3 different ones (you know the ones you find in your hotel rooms sssshhhh)....
Made a simple teabag cover  from more papers from the collection
Again using pre coloured images of Serenity along with Sentiments also from the collection
A couple of blingy pearls to finish
Quite a simple project but so much fun to make and I loved the end result

How cute is my is the little image Ellie the Elf  from one of our lovely sponsors Oddball Art. I really enjoyed colouring her up . I think I will use her on a few Christmas cards this year.

For the sentiment I just used the empty biro method picking the lightest Red/Green
