Mixed Media Messings.....

Hi there crafty peeps....... I know it's been a long time posting again...
This time I have been playing around with some Canvas I have .... I got out all of my mixed media stash... and hey presto.... here's what happened.
I do have a bit of a 'thing' for owls, and I have searched the net for inspiration and I do have a few favourite artists...Christy Tomlinson being my fave.....
...any hoo I'm waffling. 
Here's my Owl canvas..
 So what did I use... acrylic paint, design paper, rub on's, die cuts, aqua markers, white paint pen, fine liner, ink, stamps and some doodly bits.
Well let me know what you think folks good or bad. It's not bad for my first attempt, but I think I can do better.
Thanks for stopping by.

it's all boy stuff......

... hi guys.... according to my little boy I don't do enough 'boy stuff' ..... so he are a few things I have been up to, this is also my first attempt at doing a full background, I ummed and aahhhed for ages trying to decide how to go about it.... soooo I just went for it and used a promarker fine liner straight on to the image  which I had already coloured....probably should have done the background first!!!!!

... the close up....

here are a couple of Skylanders I also coloured for my little boy, I will probably make these into bookmarks for him.....

 ... hope you likey, back again soon

a bit of Owl-ology.........

Hi everyone.... been having a play again, this time with some chippie's and diecuts, I've always thought I could put an owl together with various bits and pieces..... what do you think is it obvious or not ( I have had to explain once).....

I have used chippies from Make it crafty - cogs wings, and dragonfly.............the clock is a Tim Holtz diecut and the feet are cut from Magnolia tag dies, the pocket watch stamp was a freebie from the craft stamper magazine.... I wanted to try and achieve a metal finish on the chippies a sort of brassy look with with the verdigris patina....

this is the page right in the front of my journal.....

 I chose this quote as I have been wanting to start a journal for a while but didn't know how to go about it or how to do it...... my advive is just go for it you can do it wrong it's what's in your imagination....

I would like to put this in the anything goes challenge -  time/steampunk

Thanks for stopping by again

...on the dark side

Hi guys... I'm back again I've been having a play around with some more idea's.......this was inspired by the recent challenge over on Make it Crafty, to colour an image and then turn it to the dark side.... but as usual I was running a bit behind and missed the challenge....

I'm not sure this is what Zoe (Make it crafty) had in mind with the challenge... mine's a bit more odd and mad!
again I used a variety of mediums....acrylic paint, water colours, chalk penils, carcoal, and some lumiere paint .....oooh and some promarkers....

I still don't think I did everything I wanted to do on this piece of work.....

 Hope you likey and thank you for stopping by
