It's Vacation Time

Well for one little lady its vacation time
Unfortunatly it's not me... Sobs loudly...

The other morning I was sitting having a cuppa and deciding on my next Vera lane image that I was going to colour up ,when this little lady hopped straight into my basket begging me to take her home would of been rude of me not too

Sooooo I made her her own little suitcase and guess what she has gone to live with my Granddaughter who fell in love with her.

I loved making this up when I could eventually get the suitcase straps to fit right - I had cut them in completly reverse colours but it took me a while to figure out
You can find little Miss Traveler in the Etsy Store right here

She comes complete with a camera, postcard, map and three different sentiments.
I added in the film roll where I shrunk her right down to fit
I also added a postage stamp which I used one of the Dilly's Girls.

I coloured up using Distress Inks and used some Distress Oxides on the postcard and sentiment
I had endess fun with this

Bloom where you are Planted ~ part 2

Happy Wet Friday
Ohhh so much rain but I don't care, I really am in my happy place right now with crafting
A few days ago I discovered Vera Lane images, 
I totally am having a blast!!

Here is a link to the store
But be warned addiction may occur!!
I decided I wanted to make myself a canvas
This one is 8x8

I started off doing the boring Gesso and once dried I used a Tim Holtz stencil for the brick work along with some modelling paste ~ Luckily at this point I went shopping so it could dry naturally without me sticking me fingers in to see if its dry even though I knew it wasn't.

So once home I painted a random background using Ecolines.
I used a inkwell stamp Meadow Row for the black stamping at the bottom.
And added a few various stencils and stamps

Now from Vera Lane Studio I used
I also used the amazing collage sheets

I have used Distress inks to colour and some oxides on the background
I finished off by giving the bee's a sprinkle of glitter and then added some fun sequin mix oh a a few splodges of Nuvo drops Gloss ~ Carnation Pink

Then....... Now I am really excited about this....
I found not only these perfect images but.....
