SMUDGY ANTICS CHALLENGE - SCRAP IT UP

Happy Monday Peeps.... here we are virtually into the New Year :-)

        Welcome back for another challenge with Smudgy Antics

The challenge theme this fortnight is 
"SCRAP IT UP!"  
Using at least one stamped image (real or digi) and following the rules posted on the left sidebar, we at Smudgy Antics challenge you to use your leftovers.  It's the green thing to do.  Don't let anything go to waste!  You can use your paper scraps, but feel free to use leftover wrapping paper, paper rolls, gift bags, gift boxes and more from the holiday season.

You can stick with paper crafting or you can go three dimensional.  The more creative, the better.  We love it when you guys and gals think outside the box!

Today I made a Tag................ I used some scraps for the background (can't remember where these papers are from ) My good friend SUSAN S sent me a little pack of goodies - based on fortune telling - and I have used a couple of bits on here. I made some more sentiment tabs to match the font of the one she sent me. My Bats were leftovers from a big project I did a couple of weeks back. These are from the "Little Bit Batty Set" by SMEARED INK. I stuck them onto little strips of acetate so they look like they are flying out the door. You can't really see that well on the photo :-)


I hope you will come over to SMUDGY ANTICS to see what my DT Sisters have made for you and to play along with us. You must have loads of scraps to use up - right ???!!
This is my last creation as a DT Member for Smudgy Antics coz I want to concentrate more on drawing my designs for SMEARED INK, but I shall still be hanging around in the SMEARED & SMUDGED FORUM and playing along hopefully with some of the Challenges, so I am not really going anywhere LoL  :-)

Challenges I am entering:

Dragons Dream Tag It On 132 - Behind Closed Doors
Paper Makeup - Anything Goes with a Digi
Make It Monday 121 - Anything Goes

POOPED !!

Hello Peeps...
Well I don't know about you but I am totally pooped after the Holidays ! Also crashed with a chest infection so that didn't help me none :-(  Anyhoo - things are getting a bit better now and at least it's all out of the way (Hmmm... bit of a Bah Humbug moment there eh ??!!!)

So - today I have done a scrap page for the VERY SKETCHY Challenge over at SMEARED & SMUDGED FORUM.
The Prize is this Raven King print tank top  and I want is dearly :-)
                           
Everyone who enters at The Challenger gets a free digi too, so it's winners all round eh ??
                                           

Here's what I made with Sketch 2 - which I rotated ...



For my page I used a basic blue backing which I wrote all the stressy words of stuff we have to do during the 'festivities'. I used a whole lot of pieces from the Anatomy 101 Set from SMEARED INK to make up my skellie, and added Watchful Eye on the top for the festive head !!! I made up my own senti circle which an appropriate senti for how I feel now :-)

One of the other Challenges if Junk Funk and we are to use Masking Tape. I used sets of eyes - also from the Anatomy 101 Set and printed them onto masking tape which I stuck across the middle :-D Cool eh ?!!

Good Morning and Happy Wednesday,

Welcome to DAY 10 of the 12 DAYS OF CREEPMAS  BLOG HOP with SMEARED & SMUDGED.  My this is making the month fly along and Creepmas  Christmas will soon be upon us LoL 
You should have arrived here from the Joyous JENN, but if not - don't worry... the Blog Hop Roll is over here on my sidebar ------------------------------------------------>>>>>

Today I have attempted Domino Art :-D  I only have the 1 domino so I decided to give it a try. I have used 'Sugar Plum Fairy' and a 'Christmas Hat' - both from OCTOPODE . I coloured her digitally and then cut her out really small. My Background was a Christmas tree with wording but in Gold, so it's a bit hard to see. Then I stuck her on and covered it all with Glossy Accents. I attached a bell and ribbon to the back and covered it with some Christmas tree paper. I have used my trusty Mummy Hand to hold her for display. :-) 



It's not as cool as some Domino Art I have seen out there, but I kinda' like her :-) I shall be hanging it on my Creepmas tree :-) 

So now your next stop on the Hop should be 'Cheery CANDACE' to see what gorgeous Chrimbo delights she has for us today :-)

Hi,

SMUDGY ANTICS CHALLENGE - DISTRESS IT

Happy Monday Peeps...

                                                   
                Welcome back for another challenge with Smudgy Antics!
The challenge theme this week is 
DISTRESS IT.

Using at least one stamped image (real or digi) and following the rules posted on the left sidebar, we at Smudgy Antics challenge you to relieve some stress by distressing items to make art. 

You can stick with paper crafting or you can go three dimensional.  The more creative, the better.  We love it when you guys and gals think outside the box! 
Well this week my mind was elsewhere and I started a project for the old theme ..pfftttt LoL !!!  I managed to change it though by adding some old book roses and leaves at the base. I distressed them with TH distress inks.  Psssst... don't tell the other DTs coz I think I got away with it LoL snigger !!!
I made this 'Bat' Christmas Tree  or is it a Batmas Tree hahahahaha using images from 'A Little Bit Batty' set from SMEARED INK of course :-) I resized them down from 8" to 3" at the top to make a tree shape and then added just a bat head instead of a star. The bats were printed one side flipped so that I could stick them together.
I used another old CD storage case and poked some wire down the centre stick and secured with hot glue. Then I covered the wire and stick in blood red satin material. I stuck on my bats and them painted them with glitter varnish (you can't see that in the pic). At the base I used die cuts to cut 2 different kinds of leaves. I distressed them with TH 'Peeled Paint' green distress inks. Then I made some old book pages roses and distressed them with TH 'Vintage Photo' ink. The roses go all around the back too. Lastly I added a big bow and voila !!!



The whole project is 15" tall and 5" across the base. I think I might put this on my Chrimbo table unless anyone wants it ???!!!!
Please pop over to SMUDGY ANTICS and see the gorgeous creations my Smudgy Sisters have to show you and join in with us too :-D xxxx

Here are a few Chrimbo Decorations I have been making for the upcoming Bazaar this weekend.
I have used pages from old books and stuck them together to make long strips for the rosette backing.  It's a great way to use up all your little bits and pieces. I made assorted ribbon roses and stuff to put on them, and some gorgeous flowers that a friend sent me,  and went mad with my Stickles... it is sooo pretty and gives great glitz :-) Sorry about the shine off the baggies, but I'd packaged them up before I thought about taking pikkies :-( !!!

XMAS ANGEL

Hi there,

I was making some Angels for my tree the other day and a friend saw them and commissioned me to make her a Red/gold one. She wanted mostly red, so I just added a gold bow and a gold halo. My ones are all gold but they don't photograph very well coz they're too glossy. I will work on that pikkie and maybe show you later :-)
Anyhoo - these are made from 3 circular die-cuts and 2 smaller for the halo.  I stick them all together with hot glue coz I think it's stronger. A styrofoam ball for the head and a doily - simples eh ??!!!!
I embossed this one on the dress and wings for added texture. I might add some glitter on it - I'll see what she wants. 



I'm going to make some more now coz we have a Christmas Bazaar coming up next weekend and I have a stall there :-D xx

CHRISTMAS TAG

Hello Everyone,
If you are here for The 12 DAYS OF CREEPMAS DAY 5 with SMEARED + SMUDGED... please scroll down.
I have here a Christmas tag that I unashamedly CASED from scrappellen.blogspot.com :-) her Tag was so gorgeous I fancied having a go myself and I had this little packet of wood reindeer that I didn't know quite what to do with. She makes the most gorgeous feminine things and my jaw just drops open when I visit her Blog. !! Her Tag inspired me and here is my attempt at something pretty girly ....


click on pic to enlarge..

Now you know me - I don't often do 'girly' schtuff but I am quite pleased with this.
I used paper and main picture from  Stephanie -  La Passion du DigiScrap at The Digi Scrapbooking Boutique (and is a freebie at the moment ).
This is a No.8 tag in cream as the base. I stitched on the DP and stitched the main picture onto a piece of distressed cream card and stuck it over a piece of gauzy fabric and my snowflake.  I then made a border of lace with a Marianne die cut and threaded some pale blue paper through it where you'd normally put ribbon. The snowflake came from my friend Linda at Scrapcat Cards and the flowers are from my stash. Leaves and the other flowers/flakes were die cut with my Big Shot. I added some blue half beads and some Stickles for glitz but it doesn't show well when you photograph it.

QUOTH THE RAVEN - POE, POE, POE MERRY CHRISTMAS

Hello Peeps,
Welcome to QUEST 16 over at  QUOTH THE RAVEN which this month is called "POE ! POE! POE! MERRY CHRISTMAS".
Firstly - Congratulations to our Winner for Quest 15 - CARLA who made an awesome tag for our Tic Tac Poe Challenge, and to our Top 3... Pauline, Vee and Monique :-) Well done everyone and thank you for joining us.

Now this time we are on a Christmas Theme, but it must have some connection to Edgar Allan POE and must be on the darker/Gothic side.
The Prize this Challenge is a brand new digi I made which is not even in my Shop yet. She is 'Scheherazade' and was drawn to illustrate Poe's story - The 1002 nd Tale of Scheherazade. You can read the story HERE and here's a preview of her.... (click on Pics to enlarge)



For my project this month I have used 'Old Man' from my Tell Tale Heart digis (Poe) and the Xmas tree from the 'Gothic Christmas' set from SMEARED INK. I added some lights and made it glow :-)


Well - I hope you will come over and see the awesome creations my Poe Sisters have made to show you and also play along with us this month. :-)
See you tomorrow for DAY 4 of the 12 Days of Creepmas.

DAY 3 of the 12 DAYS OF CREEPMAS

Good morning and Happy Wednesday.


                                               

Welcome to DAY 3  of the 12 DAYS OF CREEPMAS with Smeared & Smudged.
                                   
You should have arrived here on the Hop from the  Joyous JENN.................... :-)
Today I offer you a Creepmas card.. I decided to try another white on white.
I used my Cuttlebug 'Polka Dots' embossing folder for the background coz I don't have one with snowflakes unfortunately !!
I then used a variety of dies to cut flowers + ferns and the snowman edged snowflake I bought from a friend LINDA at Scrapcat Cards who cuts them with her Cricut machine and sells them in her Etsy Shop HERE.
The main image is a new one drawn by the very talented LADY B and he's  available at SMEARED INK. Isn't he fabbo ?!!!  He's called 'Defrosting Skullman' LoL
I coloured him digitally and then cut him out with a die-cut.


This is another new one ... also by LADY B... and he's called 'Bad-ass Snowman'.. LoL


                                                         

So now your next stop on the Hop should be 'Cheery CANDACE' to see what delights she has for us today :-) If you get lost, the Hop Roll is over here on my side bar --------------------------------->>>>
Have fun on the Hop and I will see you again for Day 4 on Friday 7th December :-)
