GETTING IN MY GROOVE

Hello Peeps,
I seem to have lost my Mojo recently... can't get to do anything although my mind is racing with ideas !!!  I did a bit of sewing and then my machine broke down :-(  At least I was able to draw up some new Digital Image requests and they will be rearing their heads shortly :-D 
Other than card making for orders, I seem to be definitely 'out of my groove', but maybe I can have more success at the weekend.

I often find that making ATCs gets me up and running, so I did a couple this afternoon.  Both of them are inspired by the sea, although one is humorous and one is a bit scary  :-)




This one was done using an 'Occasions Grumpy' rubber stamp set from SMEARED INK and the background is using the Plate 32 -  'At The Beach' stamp set from De-STEMPELWINKEL.
I coloured the sea with 3 shades of blue ink stamp pads and used just one of the pale ink pads to do the sky. Then I painted the sea part with Glossy Accents.
The Grumpy was coloured with Promarkers and then cut out and mounted on foamies. The fish was given a coat of Stickles and I added some Glossy Accents to his eye. I made a sentiment tab in my graphics programme.













Now this girl is one of my own digital images available at IKEsART and she's called " Mermaid 2 ". I only used the top half of her.  She was coloured with Promarkers.
I made a sheet of that wavy background a while back by blobbing yellow and green paint onto some blue card and pressing over with cling film. Then I made waves on it by scratching and using Stickles. I added some teeny shells that I collected from my local beach :-)

I had fun today and am feeling a wee bit more artsy fartsy now :-D

Thank you for dropping in xxxxx

  2. Fabulous makes, Ike! The Grumpies one is super cute and that mermaid on the second is quite frightening! Love her awesome kelp hair.

  4. Great ATCs Ike. I particularly like the humorous one, as you'd expect! Hope your mojo comes back soon, although you wouldn't know it had gone, looking at these.
