Every Inchie Monday -- Boa

Now I definitely didn't like doing this one, I even had trouble drawing one. The sewn one is a piece of fine leather rolled up, coloured and curled up. Once the colours had dried on the stampbord I coated the snake in a 3D glossy medium, which has made the markings blurred.  Not very pleased with either of these.
I hadn't realised how many colours they came in. Why on earth do people have these as pets ????

Tag Tuesday -- Steampunk

For this fortnight on Tag Tuesday, Joan has chosen Steampunk for her theme. I do enjoy doing steampunk and started with distress inking the tags. I then stamped the backgrounded the main image. I then stamped another one and put foam pads underneath to lift it.
Finally I added some cogs and some steampunk bits.



Thursday Journal with Neet

Another anything goes page in my now nearly full journal. We are back from St Ives and Ploughing through the washing and unpacking. Where does it all go, and did I really take all those clothes.
We had a great holiday, even though the weather was a bit iffy.
Came home via Devon to see one of my cousins, and then had to get home via Wales as the M5 was shut because of a terrible accident.
I have used an already painted page, and apart from the saying, cat and dog they are all Dylusion images.



I have entered this in Yvonne's Colour my World on Art Journal Journey

Every Inchie Monday -- Trout

On Every Inchie Monday this week we are still in the water with the trout. I like eating them but not sewing them, talk about fiddly. I have drawn the stampbord one and used some fabric and stitching for the sewn one.
       I have had a very fishy week in Cornwall, I ate fish all week, including Hake, Haddock, Sea Bass, Sea Bream, Squid, Prawns and Lemon sole. We are now back home and I'm cooking a chicken.
Still on the Cornwall scene, we were in St Ives and one of the beaches for two days the life guards stopped folks going into the sea. Not because of the waves, but because there were hundreds of Man of war jellyfish in the bay. They had picked up 600 from the beach alone.

Thursday Journal with Neet.

Another anything goes this week and this is a scheduled post as we are in St Ives in Cornwall. We are having another arty week and I am catching up with a friend who has an exhibition there.





I am also entering this in Art Journal Journey where the theme is Colour in my world.

Tag Tuesday -- Paris

This is my third tag for my Paris theme on Tag Tuesday, I covered a card tag with some of my Tim Holtz paper and stamped the small tag and the dancers. The line drawings came from a book. Added two small circles  and some flowers to finish off.
We are in St Ives at the moment, and so far have been lucky with the weather, I will put some pictures on when we get home.

Every Inchie Monday -- Starfish

Still at the seaside on Every Inchie Monday, and this time it's the starfish, or as someone told us in Australia, they should be called sea stars, which I think is a much nicer name.
I used my lovely gold leather for the sewn one and shrink plastic for the stampbord one.
