Hello Everyone..

I have an oldie to share with you today from SASAYAKI GLITTER  but oh, so very cute..

There you go..what could be cuter than a graduating piggy sitting on a stack of books...

This piggy is called GRADUATION DAY  ..

He does not come sitting on the books I put him there after colouring him and fussy cutting him..

I made the apple with a circle punch, cut away the middle and added some die cut leaves..and die cut the letters and numbers..
The desk part was just kraft card..and his glasses all glossies up..

So pop on over to the SASAYAKI GLITTER STORE..HERE  check out the oldies and the new releases while you are there..and if you are passing the challenge blog HERE  you could check out my teamies projects..

Thanks so much for stopping by and I will see you tomorrow...

Hello Everyone..

Sharing my inspiration project using one of SASAYAKI GLITTERS  fabulous images, this one is called Mona ..

She was perfect for paper piecing...

I coloured with my markers and flicked that grass for a very long time but really enjoy doing that..I then added the flower dots with a white Gel pen..that little mouse looks so cute standing in the grass.

The trees were die cut coloured and then the stripes of brown and white added for shading and texture..

The clouds I put across the top as it looked so plain...I don't like it much but they are stuck there.

So there we go..thanks so much for stopping by..I'll see you tomorrow..

Christmas Crafts All Year Round and a tutorial..

Hello Everyone...

Today I am sharing my project for CHRISTMAS CRAFTS ALL YEAR ROUND

I was playing around in my craftroom quite awhile ago now and started making a canvas..

I was so surprised when the mountains appeared I started taking photos and made a tutorial..

Shame there were pics missing, but as I said I was so surprised as mountains were not in my mind...not a lot was... then suddenly there were mountains..

Used modelling paste on top of the mountains for snow..and added shading with paint..

So of course I addded grass with acryllic paints then stencilled some flowers...

Added snow in the sky and hated it as I didn't remove the yucky ones in time and they dried..

So I added glitter around a lot of the snowflake drops and they looked a bit better...

You can see a bit of sparkle here...

Then I painted the flowers and butterflies....

I coloured this sweet girl which was an e - mail freebie from Unky at the Eastwind Store called..

Year of the Golden dog...and I painted him dark brown..sheez..

Fussy cut them both out...

And added them to my Winter scene...then stamped the sentiment..

and that is the end..

Thank you so much for stopping by and I will go have a lay down now as I've been a busy busy  blogger today..see you tomorow..

But for this post I have the pleasure to share  2 of the new releases from SASAYAKI GLITTER ..

First up I'm going to show you  image #157 " Mia's Birthday"..

She was pure delight to colour and I love her glasses filled with glossy accents...

Mia was coloured with my markers and shaded with pencils...
The cup cake papers I have had forever...and used my cupcake die which was a present from Annie [thank you Annie] and added lots [too much] wink of Stella..

A side view and sneak look at the cupcakes inside..


Next up we have  image # 156 " Mia and Flower "

Again coloured with markers and used background papers that have garden scenes printed on them..really lovely and just gave Mia the perfect background for her flower...

Do you notice something about Mia here in the original image??................

She has no glasses on, but in my coloured image she has..I bought a very cute sunglasses die and made them look the same as the other image..cute eh!..

I added spots on her dress and a few dies..fence...grass...rake...birds on a branch...toadstools.

There's a side view and the wheelbarrow die inside..I couldn't fit it on the

I coloured the bird die too..
