Hidden Objects: Wish!

So happy to be back guesting on the PaperArtsy blog tonight!
The theme is 'Hidden Objects'... and I'm going to be mean and make you hop on over to the PA blog HERE to find out exactly what I did to embrace the theme!
Not totally mean though, here is a pic to be going on with..

(I know.... nothing about that says 'Hidden Object' does it? he he he... you'll need to go look!)
Have a great weekend everyone!

Be A Dreamer Today

Calico Craft Parts are rather fabulous.. you need to take a little trip over there and see what's in store, so much to get the imagination firing!
My DT project today uses rather a lot of them... and if you're into this style of crafting, then these embellishments work wonderfully!

The whole thing is now live over on the Calico Craft parts blog..... HERE!

Have a great day!

Yep, been drawing again.... an open eyed whimsy girl for a change rather than the 'eek I'm too scared to do an eye' closed eye person!
This is my DT piece for A Sprinkle Of Imagination today, and is now live over on the blog HERE...

Have a lovely weekend!

What Makes You Smile?

So, what makes you smile? That's the theme for the June challenge over at Our Creative Corner!
Jan is our host, and this is what she has to say:

 What makes you smile 

Close your eyes for a few minutes, relax and think about something that makes you smile..............
It could be a special person, a favourite place, a quote, an incident, the list is endless!
Your June challenge is to create something that will make us smile, it could be a scrapbook or journal page, a canvas, a tag, whatever your imagination dictates.

Our sponsor this month is Tando Creative!

Tando Creative are offering a selection of products for the winner of this months challenge, a prize well worth winning!
What makes me smile?
Creating painty backgrounds and drawing quirky figures!

I thought I would share just how my figure came into being. First, she was sketched out onto watercolour paper, and cut out. Yes, poor girl looks weird as she has no hair yet!

Sketch out the shape of the dress onto text paper...

Cut it out...

Make sure it fits!

Do the same for the wings..

Glue the text in place...

I then painted the dress...

And then added stamping for extra detail...

Her face was then painted..

And the whole  thing stuck to the background..

Now the hair can be sketched in...

and painted...

I added extra details to the hair with a fine liner pen..

My background is a typical 'Trish' painty, stencilly and stamped affair..

I added a heart and some words...

 As a finishing touch I edged the whole figure, with a smudgy black pencil.
I hope you like her!

Don't forget, the 'What Makes You Smile' challenge can be found over on the Our Creative Corner blog now!
