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.

Vera Lane Studio - Pancake Day

Happy Saturday!

 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

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.

Vera Lane Studio - Baby It's Cold Outside

Happy Boxing Day!

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

I had this lovely textured card with a snow blizzard effect. I stamped with AALL and Create #80 Lined and #307 Overlapping Texture randomly around the edge using Versafine Clair Morning Mist. I also stamped #307 Overlapping Texture in Paperarty Snowflake white paint in some random areas too. I inked around the edges first with Hickory Smoke Distress Oxide and then with Black Soot. I stamped the number stamp in #338 Background Noise with Versafine Clair Nocturne. 

I used the white Molotow acrylic paint pen to create splatters over the panel. I then stamped one of the paint splats from #338 Background Noise in Versafine Clair Nocturne.

I coloured my image and dog using my copic markers in shades of grey and black, adding texture to her scarf and hat. I also added textured to the "doodle" dog. Some white gel pen highlights to finish off.

I then adhered them in place on the stamped paint splat.. Finally I added my PC printed sentiment and doodled around the edge with my black fineliner.

Vera Lane Studio - A Christmas Wish

 

Happy Saturday!

Today I'm sharing my Vera Lane Studio DT project featuring Live Joyfully and Christmas Tree which are available in the Vera Lane Studio Etsy shop.

I wanted to make a little slimline plaque. I used some wood effect paper I had with snow on it and cut it down to 7.5x3.5 inches. I them stamped randomly over the edges using some of the stamps in the  AALL And Create #338 Background Noise set using Versamark clear ink. I then heat embossed them in Copper, Gold and white WOW embossing powders. I also stamped one of the stamps with Paperartsy Fresco Snowflake White acrylic paint. I then glued it down onto some greyboard to give it some strength.

I merged one of the trees from the Christmas Tree set and  one of the girls from Live Joyfully with her crown so she looked like a fairy.

I coloured her in Copper and Gold tones to keep with the colour scheme, and added some white highlights with my gel pen and some clear Wink Of Stella to her wings and crown. I used the star stamp from the AALL And Create #419 Moonlight set and stamped and embossed with gold embossing powder on the Christmas tree. To make the trunk I added a little bit of corrugated card for some texture.

To finish off I printed out the sentiment and doodled around the edge with my black fineliner.

The theme from Team Wendy is
 
Last Minute Christmas
 
I've used this super cute Gingerbread Nordic Gnome from ScrapflowerEStudio for my card. I coloured him with my copic markers in gingerbread colours. I also printed out a few more of the gingerbread man on his hat to add to the card.
I wanted to give the impression of gingerbread with white icing so decided to make the card with kraft and doodle with my white gel pen. I cut a slimline card and also the Whimsy Scenic Window slimline die from kraft. Once I had adhered the window panel I used my white gel pen to doodle all around it. The central panel I embossed white snowflakes using white WOW embossing powder. I also added one to the gnome's hat.
I added the gnome and the mini gingerbread men to the card. To finish off I embossed the Whimsy stamps sentiment in white embossing powder and added it to the card.

I really love this kraft and white look!

Vera Lane Studio - December

Happy Saturday!

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

I coloured her with my copic markers adding some knitted effect to her headband with a pink Prismacolor pencil. I also added some clear Wink Of Stella to her hair to give it some icy sparkle.

I die cut my tag using the MFT stitched tags die and inked it with Spun Sugar Distress Oxide using my blending brush. I then inked the circles from the AALL And Create #338 Background Noise with my Versamark clear ink pad and then added some opaque white WOW embossing powder and heat embossed it.


 I punched the tiny snowflakes using a punch and glue them to the tag. I then splattered some Molotow white acrylic pain over the whole tag.

Next I adhered my image in the bottom right corner and the sentiment to the top left.

To finish off I added a pink seam binding bow.

Vera Lane Studio - Not Driving Home For Christmas

Happy Saturday!

Today I'm sharing my Vera Lane Studio DT project featuring 3 sets which are available in the Vera Lane Studio Etsy shop.

I wanted to make a bright Christmas coloured project and inject a bit of humour. Goodness knows we need some after the year we've had. I decided to use the Chris Rea song Driving Home For Christmas or as in the case may be, Not Driving Home For Christmas depending on local travelling and visiting restrictions.

I've used the car from the Wheels set, the girl from New Day and the tree from Merry.

I know it's not the typical American red truck but I love this little red car so added the tree on top. The girl from New Day looks like she's shaking her finger and saying "no" so I thought she would be perfect.

 

I brayered red, white and green acrylic paint onto my gelli plate and pressed down onto it with some bubble wrap to add some texture. I then used Vanilla acrylic paint to lift the print. I then stamped AALL And Create #399 Framework Elements in Rustic Wilderness Distress Oxide and #352 Circled Numbers in Festive Berries. Next I stamped #434 Newsprint Numbers in Versafine Clair Nocturne black.  I then used the top of two pen lids and stamped circles in Snowflake white.

Next I adhered my images and added some doodling below them with my black fineliner. I added the word Journey from the AALL And Create washi tape in the top left corner and then printed out my sentiment, underlining the word NOT in red. I finished by adding this to my project.

I loved making this tongue in cheek scene and hope it brought a smile to your face.

Vera Lane Studio - Parrot Love

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

I used my Gelli plate to make my background. It was inspired by a Tracy Evans Facebook Live I watched to create the 4 quarters.

I added red acrylic paint to one quarter of the gelli plate and brayered it. I then put the stencil on top and patted down with scrap paper to remove excess paint. I did the same with each quarter alternating between the red and the Paperartsy Fresco Double Denim blue paint. I then lifted the print using Paperartsy Fresco Honeydew.

I random stamped the AALL and Create #262 Mesh stamp using Candied Apple Distress Oxide, and then #304 Heartfelt using Versafine Clair Paradise. I then splattered some Molotow white acrylic paint over it all and finished off by dabbing some Paperartsy Fresco Snowflake white paint around the edges.

Next I coloured my images with my copic markers adding some white highlights with my gel pen. I added some AALL and Create plain washi tape under where I wanted the branches to go and stamped with the #304 heartfelt stamp again. I adhered the branches and drew a line between them for one of the parrots to perch on. I then added the other parrots. I used another piece of plain washi tape I'd stamped on and added the girl and her parrot to this.


I finished off by adding the sentiment from the stamp set.

I've made another slimline card using another elf!
 
This elf digi I bought way back in 2012 when Birdie Brown had a digi stamp shop on Etsy. I coloured him with my Copic markers.
I made my slimline card blank using green card and added a panel of red and white stripey paper. I cut a panel of white card and adhered my elf to it.
I then doodled around the edge with my black fineliner.
Next I cut the sentiment die in green card and added it.
To finish off I added some pearls.
I love this image so much.
