A SPOT OF SILLINESS

Me again,
I am in a daft mood and I just had a flash of inspiration when Lady B told me of a super site for FREE Word Art.......... Ginger's House
I had been looking for some inspiration to make a creation for the ROCK N ROLLA Challenge over at Smeared & Smudged Forum and I found just the thing :-D  Our inspiration was 'Earth Intruders' by Bjork, and then I found the word art on Ginger's Blog and the whole thing just made me snigger and I had to do this..........................


Did you get it ?? - eh?? -  eh??...  'so much'  hiding..... Oh well - never mind :-)

Hand and eyes images from the Anatomy 101 set from Smeared Ink.

12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS ......... DAY 11

Well, here we are... nearly at the end :-( Welcome to Day 11 of the 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS with Smeared & Smudged. For my piece today I have used 'Kingston' and 'Cyclops' from the Heebie Jeebies set by Smeared Ink and also RIP Birdie from Tori. I took the liberty of renaming Cyclops to J'Oliver for my creation hee hee. All images were coloured digitally.


I hope you will go over and see the other JOLLY BLOGGER's wonderful creations and that you will come back on Friday for the very last day :-(

SMUDGY ANTICS CHALLENGE DESIGN TEAM PROJECT

Good Morning Peeps,
Here is my project as Smudgy Antics Design Team Member for this week's Challenge - "WICKED CHRISTMAS".


I have used 'Clarice' from the GLAM VAMP Set by Smeared Ink. These are just beautiful - not too scary, and you can dress them how you like. I coloured her digitally and then I 'paperpieced' her shirt, and then added that on top. (Actually - looking at it now I have got horizontal lines on her shirt a bit too close to horizontals on the window. I didn't notice that before, but it's done now !!)  I then made her Tree and Presents using images from 'GOTHIC CHRISTMAS' also by Smeared Ink. The presents come either plain or printed with bats, skulls and stuff and you colour them yourself. Cool eh ??!!  I added some 'bling' lights in my graphics programme. I love the Bat at the top of the tree. The sentiment was made also in my programme and I have set it all again my own digi called 'Gothic Window' (available in Shop)
I cut out the windows and set a snow scene behind. :-D
I hope you will come over to Smudgy Antics to see the other DT creations and maybe even join in the Challenge yourself :-D :-D    There are TWO weeks for this Challenge 'cos we are coming up to the busy time now.  xxxxxxx

I decided to make a little tag for a friend's Chrimbo prezzie but they like Gothic type things. I have used a Freebie image I got from Dustin Pike way back in June.


I am entering him in the Dustin Pike - Tis the Season Challenge.

"OH, THE HORROR" CHALLENGE AT SMEARED & SMUDGED

Happy Sunday everyone,
Today I have made an entry for the 'Oh, The Horror'  inspiration Challenge over at Smeared & Smudged. The Theme is a Film and this time it is GREMLINS. :-D              
 See - not so horror-ible after all (I saw you cringeing !!!)
I wanted to enter this one 'cos I really, REALLY, absolutely NEED the digi they are giving away if you enter the Challenges. :-D
There is also a Sketch Challenge for cards and scrapbooking, A Junk Funk Challenge, where you use old stuff.... this time it's rubber bands (so that let's me out !!!) a GDT Challenge and Rock n Rolla, which is a Challenge inspired by a song. This time it's Bjork. So there's no excuse - something for everyone there. Why not whizz over and join in :-D :-D

So,....... I drew myself a little Gremlin and coloured him digitally. Then I used 'Shrooms' from my new set I just bought from Smeared Ink called "Killer Bo Peep". It is really funny .... honestly.. I know it doesn't sound it, but it is, and she is real cute :-D    I coloured everything digitally and then it against an ItKuPiLli background that I messed with just a tad !! :-)


He's legging it out of the rain, but it looks like it's too late to me  ....bwaahahahahaha !!

I am going to pop him in the following Challenges:

A LITTLE WHIMSY

Hello there,
I rustled up this little card with a fabbo image from MelJen's Designs. I think he is sooo cute, I just had to use him today when I was placing with my die cuts. I was feeling in quite a cutesy mood. :-)


I used a scrap of blue card, papers from Papermania - Contemporary Christmas and a scrap of silver mirri card. He has been coloured digitally and then printed out 3 times and fussy cut to make a 3D decoupage image - cute eh ???    :-)

SMUDGY ANTICS CHALLENGE

Cripes !!! Would you believe I managed to delete my previous Post about this by mistake !!! ACK !!  I asked for advice about her nose as I didn't think it was quite right, went to change it a bit,  and now the whole bloomin' thing is GONE !!! I can't remember what I put!!! I had 4 lovely comments too. :-(
Well, this is for the Challenge over at Smudgy Antics and I have used a new digi I drew yesterday that was inspired by 'Annabel Lee' by Edgar Allan POE. The Challenge is to make a project which is inspired by a Book, Film or Poem. I have coloured her digitally and have used 'Skull Face Flower' from the Killer Bo Peep set by Smeared Ink.


I hope you can pop over to Smudgy Antics and play along with us this week and to look at the awesome DT creations xxxxxxxx

12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS WITH SMEARED & SMUDGED.... DAY 6

Happy Sunday Everyone,
Here is my creation for Day 6 of the 12 Days of Christmas with Smeared & Smudged. I have used FREEBIE images from My Other Creative Side for this little Chrimbo whimsy, as I was in a jolly mood today :-D They are Georgina, Georgie and Happy Train and they are some of the fabulous FREE images that Lady E has been creating. I must admit, I did cheat a bit and use the pre-coloured ones she gave but the backing took a bit of time and I am in the middle of shedloads of other stuff to finish.  Lady E has a fairly new Blog and you must go over and have a look at her great images. :-D  Backing papers were also a free download and bits of ribbon from my stash.

12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS ... DAY 4

Hello & welcome to 12 Days of Christmas from Smeared & Smudged - Day4.
Today I have altered a little box - a friend of mine smokes these little cigar thingies which come in dinky little boxes, so I snagged a few of them ages ago, and they've been sitting waiting to be 'made-over' ever since. I lined the inside with kitchen foil and covered the outside with Christmas paper. I then coloured and cut out my only Grumpie from Smeared Ink and stuck him inside - propping up the lid, and attached some ribbon to hang with.  Et voila !.... a Christmas Tree Decoration.


I hope you will visit the other JOLLY BLOGGERS to view their marvelous creations. The list is on the right over here ----------------------------->>>>>

BLING

Hello,
Today I made a creation for the 'BLING' Challenge over at Paper Creations Ink. Sara has got a fabulous sponsor this time - MIRANDA VAN DEN BOSCH - and she has drawn some awesome fairies which are the prize for this Challenge AND I just HAVE to win one :-D They are gorgeous. I have been lucky enough to be chosen as GDT at Paper Creations Ink for January 2012 and am very excited about that. :-D
So, I got out one of my Mandala stamps for this tree decoration. I stamped it 7 times and cut out the pieces. Then I spent a couple of days finely putting glue in all the right bits and adding glitter. I am now covered in the stuff and it's everywhere. LoL Great effect though, even if it is a lot of work. I was thinking I might make another one to stick on the back of this, so if it swivels on the tree it'll look the same both sides......... but maybe not. Got loads of other stuff to do :-) I really tried to get good photos of this but it's soooo hard with all the glitter and I can't really get it in it's true glory. :-( Here it is anyhow ....

12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS ... DAY 3

Waaahh !! PINK - I hear you scream. Well, I told you I had been feeling ill recently :-D  I did creep it up a little though with a 'Watchful Eye' rosette. He's from Smeared Ink - of course. My main image I did using a little clear stamp I won recently as a huge stash of blog candy :-D  Yay - me !!!  , which I believe is a Simply Betty image. I coloured her with markers and then scanned her into the computer, to make her a bit bigger 'cos she's a teensy little thing. Good and quick for colouring though :-)  DP is from my stash and I can't remember where I got them - think they were freebies about 4 years back !! I embossed a bit of pink card and skritted it with sandpaper, then had just a smidge of matching ribbon for the bottom. Ta-Dah xx
