Prisma Pencils

Have not done very well the first couple of times using these pencils but have done a couple of cards using them and am quite pleased with the results. I think I wasn't using enough of the Sansador. Have used them with a new Dovecraft stamp of a tortoise and my new Pink Cat Studio Hooty Owls, love em they are sooo cute. Hope you like, any tips with these pencils greatfully received.

Still seem to be in a card mad making mode, made me first two scrapbook pages a while ago and need to get back to it, have all the photo's sorted just need to get on with it. Does not help when I keep buying new stamps!

I know lots of peeps have started their Christmas cards but just can't bring myself to do it, have thought about it and thought about it , but it's just toooo sooon.

Me to You

I can now blog this, as I know it has been received. Painted the pieces with acrylic dabbers, embossed the pattern, stamped and coloured Stitchels. Thought it could do with something else, but couldn't find the right thing so left it alone, as would ususally botch it up trying to add something else.

Arty Girlz Challenge

I've done another one, it's lovely to be off work, but am back to it on Monday, so must make the most of my last few days.

The challenge from this week is no patterned paper and here's what I did, have not done a card without layers of papers for ages, but like what I have done.
Have used some PM flower stickers, downloaded images from Pink Petticoat and some Cuttlebug embossed card.

Where does the time go?

Hi folks, already half way through August into my second week of hols, why does it feel like I have less time when at home than when working?

Have a new pc and have spent half my time messing with the internet, still doesn't want to log in automatically, wish I had a little more knowledge, but keep managing to get it working. Now I have to fathom out how to resize some of my images cos it's not working the same as with my old XP versions.

Sooooo, only managed to do one card, it's ok but not happy with the colouring, seem to be hit and miss at the moment and trying to get to grips with my new prisma pencils, but not very well though.
