Buttons or badges - whatever you call them - are always a winner! These ones feature my latest art using my new designs for Carabelle Studio. I make these to give away at shows when people choose to do a make and take with me. But these have been a bit of a hit over on facebook and IG, so I shall be adding some to my Etsy shop soon, and then anyone can have one - I know you can't all make it to the shows :-)

Watch this space!

More Tweeters!

Crazy Circles stencil

Have you got an ear worm now?! You're welcome! LOL!

I decided to make an 8x8" journal page in my lovely disc bound art journal (by Art-cademy) using Tweeters. The quote is from Jungle Book - just incase it's driving you mad trying to think where its from!

Here are a few step photos of how I created the background. I began by making messy painty patches:

I then sponged through the *new* Crazy Circles stencil:

Such an easy way to build a background!

Bye for now, have a great day :-)

Crazy Circles stencil
by me! For Carabelle Studio 

Just a quick card from me today, using the newly released 'Tweeters'! This is the smallest bird in the set and I actually just love his cross little face haha!

Small is also really good for a quick card.

Have a great lazy Sunday :-)

Playful Penguins!

Playful Penguins 
Crazy Circles stencil

Well, I'm still catching up with samples for the latest collection from Carabelle Studio. Here are my crazy happy playful penguins! Ever since my children (now grown up) watched hour after hour of Pingu (the crazy little French penguin!) I have had a real fondness for these lovely creatures.

Also, the first time I ever saw penguins in real life I couldn't believe how small they were!

I made the background using my *new* crazy circles stencil with alcohol ink on the Gel Press, and I also added the fab little colour wheel by Edwige, from the Grunge Chromatique set.

And who wouldn't want fishy bunting? ha!

For all things Carabelle, have a look at this page on my blog for links, ideas and inspiration :-)

Happy Ratties!


Oh yay! My new collection for Carabelle Studio finally arrived! It was stuck in customs for some time but now they are here :-)

                                 Crazy Circles                                                         Happy Ratties

As soon as my new collection arrives, I always begin with a stamping, cutting and colouring session. 

I have a video for this style of loose and free colouring on you tube *here*

And I used some collage bits, stitching and loose thread to put my first tag together, using Happy Ratties.

You can find ideas, inspiration as well as links to stockists on this page on my blog *here*

Well, there will be more to follow now that I actually have my new goodies :-)
