'Inspiration a Plenty' at Just Us Girls

We have this amazing photo below
chosen by Judy who is
Hostess for our Photo Week.
You just have to see the 'Bigger Picture'
When we all saw this we were in awe of how
beautiful it was - and then you look
at it and just wonder what you are going to pick up on
to create your project! The mind boggles!
That array of beautiful colours sold me so I went with
'trying' to capture some of that - and then there are
'those feathers' - yes Judy I just HAD TO use them.
There are so many elements used here I would bore you
with them all.
Being a bit of mixed media I used
gesso gelatos stencils paints
and some inka gold.
My feathers are from Stampin' Up
adding a few sequins, button. trim
and touches of liquid pearls.
Sentiment is Paper Smooches.
Now I know you will be anxious to pop over to
Our Blog to see what caught the eye of our
August Guest - Colleen and the Team.
I've said it before but - I know you won't be disappointed.
Hope we have inspired you to created and join us
and you could be our Chic of the Week and
be included in a chance to be our
Guest in October.
Thanks for dropping in.

Looking for a 'Sea Change'

 Bec is hosting the latest challenge over at
Crafty Cardmakers and has chosen
'By or Under the Sea'
I decided to go with an Under the Sea scene.
I used lots of bits and bobs here but
 I will endeavour to name a few -
The Under the Sea scene is an embossing folder.
Adding different ink types and colours.
Heat embossed the bottom to look like sand.
The background behind the sea creatures
(which were coloured with water colour pencils)
was inked up after I sponged the colours
onto my craft mat. Also added a stamped
image to the give water bubbles effect.
Glitter was added to part of the bottom of the sea.
Glossy Accents on the eyes and in a number of
areas for more bubbles but very hard to pick up.
I think that covers most of it.
Hope you can pop over and see what theme the Team
went for Here. Maybe you will get time to play with this
'Really Cool' Challenge. Hope so.
Thanks for dropping in.
