Vera Lane Studio - Jardin

Happy Saturday!

Today I'm sharing my Vera Lane Studio DT project which is a 5½ inch double journal spread featuring Jardin which is available from the Etsy shop. I also used an older set called Circles And Stems.

 I started by  using the Cracked Wall 1 stencil and some light modelling paste on the left hand page. Once it was dry I went over it with some Antique Linen distress oxide with some spritzed water added. Next I went over the raised bricks lightly with some Vintage Photo DO.

I blended some Tumbled Glass DO over the top 2 thirds of the pages.I then cut a cloud stencil out of some acetate and inked over it with Salty Ocean DO, moving it down the page to where the ink stopped. Next I blended some Lucky Clover DO on the bottom third of the pages and stamped using one of the stamps from the Visual Ingredients stamp set to look like grass.



 I coloured the girl, seedlings,seed packets and gloves from the Jardin set with my copic markers and cut them out. I used a piece of green garden net and attached it to the wall and adhered the new seedlings at the bottom. I then added the girl to the right of it.


 I also printed out some of the circles and stems a few times, coloured them with my copics and decoupaged them to give some dimension.

I added the stems to make them look like trees. I adhered them on the right hand page and added the gloves and seed packets at the bottom.

To finish off I printed the sentiment, doodled around it with my black fineliner and added it to the pages.

Sweet Stampin' Challenge

 Saturday and time for another  

Sweet Stampin' Challenge

 
The theme from Team Wendy is

I decided to use a 6" white circle cakeboard. I covered it with white card and trimmed it down. I then ran a black fineliner around the edge doodling a border.
Next I stamped the elephant in the bubble from the Tracey Hey Bubblicious set and coloured him with my copic markers and cut it out.
I adhered it to my circle in the bottom left corner. I then stamped one of the sentiments in the top right corner and finished it off with some bubble gems.
 
A really quick and easy card.

Vera Lane Studio - La Belle Vie

 

Happy Easter Saturday!

Today I'm sharing my Vera Lane Studio DT project featuring La Belle Vie which is available from the Etsy shop.

 I've made a little plaque from lollipop sticks for my project today. I glued 7 together at the back using 2 smaller lollipop sticks, and gave it a light wash of white acrylic paint.

I took my Twisted Citron distress oxide spray and gave it a few bursts over the plaque. I then used AALL & Create #103 Pebble Pile stencil and sponged lightly through it with Rustic Wilderness distress oxide. I then stamped #471 Scripted Ovals and the numbers from #338 Background Noise randomly in Versafine Clair Nocturne ink. Then added some Violet and White paint splatters using my Posca pens.

Next I cut a strip of white corrugated card and coloured it with some green copics to represent grass and adhered it across the plaque near the bottom.


 I printed out the girl and multiples of her flowers and coloured them with my copics and cut them out. I added some white highlights with my gel pen.

I had some white mini fencing so cut it down and glued some of the flowers to the front of it. I then adhered it just above the grass on the right side. I then adhered the girl to the middle and the other flowers to the left. To finish off I doodled around the sentiment with my black fineliner and adhered it to the plaque.

Now just to display it in The Crafty Cabin!

Crafts Galore Encore April Challenge

As it's the first of the month, today I'm sharing my DT card for Crafts Galore Encore.   

For April it's another anything goes challenge.

The sponsor this month is Babycakes DND  and the prize is 2 digi stamps.

 I decided to go with a slimline card this month. I added some Shaded Lilac and Wilted Violet Distress Oxides to my glass mat and spritzed with water. I then smooshed my card panel in it until I got the desired effect. I then used a diamond stencil and applied Paperartsy Snowflake white paint to it. Using it as a stamp I pressed down over the inked area.

I then stamped one of the stamps from the AALL & Create set #453 Heart grunge in Versafine Clair Nocturne and Monarch randomly over the panel.Next I stamped using #304 Heartfelt using the Monarch ink.


 I moved on to stamping the large heart in the Heart Grunge set onto purple tartan paper and cut it out. I then adhered it to the card.
I printed out the gnome and paper pieced his hat and hearts with the purple tartan paper. I then coloured him with copics, adding shading to the paper pieced parts. I then added some highlights with my white gel pen.
I splattered some white paint over the panel using a white paint pen and adhered the gnome to it. I finished by stamping the LOVE sentiment from the Heart Grunge set and added it to the card.

Vera Lane Studio - Specs Appeal

 

Happy Saturday!

Today I'm sharing my Vera Lane Studio DT project featuring Specs Appeal which is available from the Etsy shop.

I decided I wanted a funny theme so  typed up the eye chart and inserted it into Word. I added two rows of the different specs you get in the digi set and printed it out.

I coloured in the glasses and added glossy accents. I added one of the sets of glasses to the girl and printed her out. I then coloured her with my copic markers. I stamped the circles stamp from Janet's #338 Background Noise in Versamark on her dress and embossed it with WOW white embossing powder. I also added glossy accents to her glasses. I doodled around the edge with my black fineliner and added some of Janet's new Washi tape for AALL & Create. 

Next I added some black and wine paint splatters. I used another small piece of washi tape and adhered the girl on it at the left side. I finally added the sentiment using the SPECS to cover up the "other" word in the eye chart....lol.

It's quite a CAS project but wanted to focus on the girl and the eye chart.

Vera Lane Studio - Aviary

Happy Saturday!

Today I'm sharing my Vera Lane Studio DT project which is an A5 journal page featuring Aviary which is available from the Etsy shop.

 I started by adhering a piece of the Stamperia Blue Lands paper to fit my page. I then used the AALL & Create #37 Cracked Walls 1 stencil and stencilled using Liquitex light modelling paste in the top and bottom left corners.

Once it was dry I went over with a watered down white gesso. Just to tone down the papers and give an even texture. 

Next I used some watered down Paperartsy Fresco paints in Ice Blue, Sky and Double Denim. Starting with the lightest just washing over the  texture paste and working towards the darkest shade. Also all around the outside so the darkest shade was at the edges. Once that was dry I used the Music part from the #75 Vocalist stamp set and stamped some randomly using Versafine Clair Nocturne. Then I stamped the grid stamp from #404 Visual Ingredients around the edges. I finished off the stamping with #304 heartfelt using Salty Ocean DO and added some white splatters with my white paint pen.

 I then coloured in my image and 4 of the birds using my copic markers, added some highlights with a white gel pen and cut them out. 

I added a piece of  #8 Fledgling washi tape and adhered my girl to it. I then adhered the birds. To finish off I added the sentiment and outlined with black fineliner.

Vera Lane Studio - Bunny Kisses

Happy Saturday!

Today I'm sharing my Vera Lane Studio DT project which is an A5 journal page featuring Bunny Kisses which is available from the Etsy shop.

 I brayered my card using Paperartsy Fresco paints in Frosty and Peppermint greens and also Sherbet pink. I then brayered some Snowflake white onto the AALL & Create #116 Tre Fiore stencil by Janet. Next I spritzed it with some water and placed it on the background. I smoothed it down and held it in place for a minute then removed the stencil.

After that I used the circles from the #22 Human stencil and applied some Liquitex light modelling paste which I added some of the green and pink paint to, so it would coordinate. After it dried I used the stencil again and dabbed some Snowflake white paint through it with a sponge.


 When it had all dried I stamped using #304 Heartfelt, #352 Circled numbers and the script from #338 Backround Noise randomly over the page using Versafine Clair Morning Mist. Some white splatters using my paint pen to finish it off.
I added two pieces of washi tape and adhered the girls on them. Finally I added the sentiment and ran my black fineliner around it.
Aren't they just the sweetest little bunnies?

Vera Lane Studio - Coffee, Tea And Books

 Happy Saturday!

Today I'm sharing my Vera Lane Studio DT project which is a 6x6 journal page featuring Coffee, Tea And Books which is available in the Etsy shop.

 I coloured Amelia and her pile of books in with my copic markers and fussy cut her out. I also coloured in one of the plants from the Succulents set and cut it out.

I used some patterned paper that looked like wallpaper and cut off a 1 3/4 inch strip. I used the cut off piece to paper piece the cushions from Janet's AALL & Create #461 Have A Seat set. I added a piece of wood effect paper to look like the floor and added a darker strip as skirting. I used one of the script stamps from AALL & Create #338 to add some script to the wallpaper.  I then stamped the sofa from the Have A Seat set and paper pieced it with some hessian look paper. I then used to copics to add some shading. I glued a set of cushions on the sofa and added Amelia. I then used some 3D foam pads to add some dimension.



I added the pile of books with some 3D foam pads too. I added the succulent plant and another set of cushions on the floor. I printed off the sentiment and doodled a frame around it. I then doodled the hanger so it looked like a picture on the wall. To finish off I doodled around the edge with my black fineliner pen.

Vera Lane Studio - Belle Âme

 Happy Saturday!

Today I'm sharing my Vera Lane Studio DT project which is an altered gift bag featuring Belle Ame which is available in the Etsy shop.

 I tore some script paper and kraft card I had and glued it randomly on the bag. One of the pieces of kraft card I ran through my Marvy paper crimper tp give the corrugated effect.

I applied some white gesso around all the ripped edges to soften the look. I then applied some Antique Linen and Vintage Photo to my glass mat and spritzed some water on them, I then used a brush and applied the colours randomly over the gesso and edges of bag.

I stamped using the grid from Visual Ingredients in Ground Espresso. I then stamped using the bubble wrap in Vintage Photo. Script from Background Noise in Vintage Photo and finished off the stamping using a pen lid and some Snowflake white Paperartsy paint.

Next I splattered with paint from my Posca pens in White, Brown and Gold

I adhered a strip of canvas and some jute ribbon.

Once I had coloured my image with all E number Copics, apart from her gold flower eyelashes and star, I adhered her above the canvas. I used a Dark Brown     Zig watercolour pen and ran around her edges to add shadow. I also did the same with the stars which were punched out of kraft and paint splattered.

To finish off I added the sentiment and doodled around it with my black fineliner.

Vera Lane Studio - Pizza My Heart

Happy Saturday!

Today I'm sharing my Vera Lane Studio DT project which is featuring Pizza My Heart which is available in the Etsy shop.

Today I'm serving up a 6 inch well fired pepperoni pizza as my project. As much as my husbands family are Italian I'm not a huge pizza fan. Probably why it's well fired...LOL. 

You really do need to use your imagination a bit here. 

(and read the bits in brackets in an Italian accent!)

 I started by applying some texture paste using the AALL And Create stencil #88Ring The Changes. Once it was dry I smooshed it in some Crackling Campfire and Festive Berries distress oxides mixed with water. I then cut them out with a circle die. I then inked around the edges with some Crackling Campfire.

(That's a the pepperoni!)

I did the same smooshing technique on my 6 inch pizza base. I then stamped one of the stamps from #338 background noise in Candied Apple. 

(That's a the tomato!)

I also stamped one of the script stamps from the same set in Vanilla  Paperartsy acrylic paint.

 (That's a the cheese!)

I then added the pepperoni and used my Black Zig watercolour pen to ink around it and the base.

(That's a the well fired effect!)

I then used my black Posca paint pen to add splatters. 

(That's a the cracked black pepper!)

I finished with the heart from the digi set and inked it with Cracked Pistachio DO and stencilled it with the same stencil using Lucky Clover DO.

(That's a the Basil!)

To finish I coloured my image with copics and cut her out. I then added the sentiment and doodled with my black fineliner around it, and some black watercolour underneath to tie it all in.

Vera Lane Studio - 99% Angel

Happy Saturday!

Today I'm sharing my Vera Lane Studio DT project which is an 6x6 journal page featuring 99% Angel which is available in the Etsy shop.

 I brayered some Paperartsy Haystack coloured paint onto my page. I then toned it down in bits using Snowflake white. I used one of the circles from #404 Visual Ingredients and stamped it in the top left corner with Versafine Clair Cheerful to look like a sun. I used the little raindrop like stamp to add the rays. I then second generation stamped the other circle stamp in Frayed Burlap Distress Oxide. I also stamped the little semi circles stamp in Cheerful.

Next I used the cloud looking stamp from #211 Count On You and stamped it in Frayed Burlap randomly on the page. I then used #352 Circled numbers and stamped parts of it using Fossilised Amber DO.


 I coloured in my images with my copic markers and cut them out. I added the clouds to the page. I then added some white paint splatters using my tombow white paint pen. Next I added my image and sentiment to finish off

Vera Lane Studio - Chill

Happy Saturday!

Today I'm sharing my Vera Lane Studio DT project which is an A5 journal page featuring Chill which is available in the Etsy shop.

 I trimmed a sheet of Snow Blizzard textured card with blue tones to A5. I used a card template shaped like and igloo and taped in place. I then used the AALL And Create #109 Superbly Square stencil and added some Distress texture paste through it. Once it had dried I moved the stencil and added some more in the gaps. I then lightly sketched down the edge to define the shape. It's an igloo with some artistic license!

I also added some texture paste along the bottom to look like snow.

Once it was all dried I stamped the circles from #338 Background Noise in Tumbled Glass oxide randomly over the card. I then did the same with one of the stamps from #404 Visual Ingredients in Salty Ocean.

Next I stamped the numbers from #338 Background Noise in Versafine Clair Nocturne. I then splattered some white paint from my Molotow white paint pen.

I coloured my images in using my copic markers and cut them out. I then adhered them to my page and added highlights with my white gel pen.

To finish off I printed the sentiment and doodled round it with my black fineliner.

Vera Lane Studio - New Dress (Boutique)

 Today I'm sharing my Vera Lane Studio DT project featuring New Dress which is available in the Etsy shop.

 I decided to make one of Janet's little rooms that she showed on a Facebook live last Sunday. It's pinned in the announcements in the group if you missed it.

I started with the floor and added a very light layer of Hickory Smoke Distress Oxide with my blending brush. Next I took the Lushly Leafy stencil and blended some more Hickory Smoke. This time I made it a bit darker and tried to keep it centred in the middle of the floor. I then doodled around it with my black fineliner so it looked like a rug.

 

I coloured my image with copic markers and cut her out and placed her to one side
 I printed out some of the precoloured dresses and glued them to the floor adding coat hangers. She obviously didn't like those dresses as she's chucked them on the rug!



I did the walls next. I added some Wilted Violet,Spun Sugar and Picked Raspberry DO's to my glass mat and spritzed with water. I then smooshed my walls in it to give a mottled look. I then took the Ring The Changes stencil and blended some Picked Raspberry through it. To finish the walls, I stamped #304 Heartfelt with Versafine Clair Purple Delight randomly in places.

I used the Windows set and printed out the door with the word Boutique added. I also stretched one of the windows to make it longer. I coloured them all grey and added silver mirror card behind the mirror. I adhered them to my room.

Next I used the Mid Century Modern set and printed out the chair and table. I stencilled the chair with Hickory Smoke to match the rug. I also printed out two of the plants from the Succulents set and a coffee mug and vase of flowers from the Coffee Love set.

To finish it off I doodled my own frame round the sentiment from the New Dress set and hung it on the wall like a picture.

These little rooms are so much fun and the possibilities are endless.

 Today I'm sharing my Vera Lane Studio DT project featuring Pancake Day who is available in the Etsy shop.

I cut two circles out. One 7" and one 4"

I added some Vintage Photo Distress Oxide to my glass mat and spritzed with a little water. I smooshed the small circle in it until I had the desired effect. I then added some Vintage Photo Distress Crayon around the outside and using a waterbrush I pulled it in randomly around the edge.

With the large circle I did the same around the edge but only flicked some of the Vintage Photo Distress Oxide mixed with some water in the middle. I then pulled out my Stampendous Frantage that I've NEVER had any luck with and gave it a go. I sprinkled it over both circles and heated from below. 

It worked!

I then second generation stamped one of the circle stamps from the AALL and Create #404 Visual Ingredients in Vintage Photo and #364 Intersecting Circles in Fossilized Amber. I also stamped one of the number stamps from #338 Background Noise in Vintage Photo.

I then adhered the small circle to the large circle lining up the stamped circles at the left and added some white paints splatters quite lightly.

 

I coloured the image with my copic markers, added some highlights with my white gel pen and cut her out. I then adhered her in the small circle

To finish off I added the sentiment which I had doodled around with my black fineliner and added some Vintage Photo Distress Crayon

Thank You
 
I've made a slimline card this week. I cut the knitted effect backing paper using the Whimsy Stamps Slimline Fancy Frame die and layered onto my card blank.
I coloured this gorgeous stamp from the Tracey Hey Alpaca Pals Pullover Pals set with my copics and paper pieced his jumper with the knitted effect paper. 
I then cut the Concord & 9th Big Thanks die in navy cardstock and added to the top of the card. To finish off I centred my image below the die cut thanks.

Vera Lane Studio - Neapolitan Birthday Girl

Happy Saturday!

 

Today I'm sharing my Vera Lane Studio DT project which is a 6x6 journal page, featuring Birthday Girl who is available in the Etsy shop.

I've gone with a Neapolitan Birthday Girl as I wanted the page the colour of Neapolitan Ice Cream. Is it a flavour that's available all over the world? I really don't know! I just remember it coming in a long cardboard carton when I was wee and my mum sliced it into portions.

I used Paperartsy Fresco Paints in Toffee and Sherbet in opposite corners on my gelli plate and brayered them out.I also added little patches of Dina Wakley Magenta paint. I then applied the AALL and Create #79 Sputnik stencil to it and pressed it down into the layer of paint. I then removed it and allowed it to dry. I then applied a thin layer of the Vanilla to pull the print.

I stamped the grid from the AALL And Create #404 Visual Elements stamp set with Vintage Photo Distress Oxide over the background. I then stamped one of the circle stamps from the same set in Picked Raspberry and Ground Espresso. I finished by stamping the #434 Newsprint Numbers in Picked Raspberry. Some white paint splats to finish.

I then coloured the images with my copics in matching colours adding white highlights with my gel pen, and cut them out. I added some washi tape and then adhered my images to the page. I doodled in the balloon strings with my black fineliner and added some glossy accents to make them shiny. Finally I added the Celebrate sentiment.

Now I'm craving some Neapolitan ice cream!

Vera Lane Studio - My Favourite Colour Is Rainbow

 Happy New Year!

Today I'm sharing my Vera Lane Studio DT project which is a journal page, featuring the girl from the Cheers set and the umbrella from the Big Game set. I widened the umbrella slightly in Word.

I've gone for another tone on tone page apart from the pop of colours on the umbrella. I coloured the image with my copic markers adding highlights with my white gel pen. I fussy cut the image out and placed to one side


 For my background I blended some Lucky Clover Distress Oxide onto my card using my blending brushes. I then blended some Black Soot Distress Oxide around the edges.

Next I stamped the AALL And Create #443 Scripted Circles stamp all over the background using Rustic Wilderness Distress Oxide. I stamped AALL And Create #352 Circled numbers in Black Soot Distress Oxide randomly around the edges. Next I stamped the numbers from the ALL And Create #211 Count On You stamp set in Lucky Clover Distress Oxide randomly over the background.

I used the lid off a pen and some Paperartsy Fresco Acrylic paint in Snowflake White and stamped some white circles over the background. After that I used some Goosebumps clear texture spray and sprayed in areas over the background. It dried with glossy patches like puddles and tiny drops, giving a watery effect. To finish off the background I added some white paint splatters with my Molotow white acrylic paint pen.

I added a little strip of torn washi tape and adhered my image above it. To finish off I added the "My Favourite Colour Is Rainbow" sentiment.

Crafts Galore Encore January Challenge

Happy New Year!

Today I'm delighted to share my first project for Crafts Galore Encore. I'm so excited to join this wonderful team. 

For January it's another anything goes challenge.

The sponsor this month is Sheepski Designs and the prize is 3 digi stamps.

 

I chose to use this fantastic gnome image called Giant Daisies.

Anyone who knows me knows that I'm a mega gnome fan. I can't count how many images and stamps I've got, so they were perfect for me. I coloured them with my copic markers, adding some highlights with my white gel pen and die cut them out using my Memory Box Wrapped Stitched circles.

I matted my Nitwit Collections Enchanting papers onto my card blank and added my die cut image. I then die cut out the Lawn Fawn Thanks script die x3 and glued them together to add some dimension. I popped this in the bottom right of my card. I finished off with 3 pearls.
