Mixed Media Friday Frenzy

Hello folks, thought I share with you my last post before the holidays.  I have spend pretty much the whole day in paint.  I just finished tidying up the huge mess I made in my studio but I have to tell you I had so much fun making this 12 x 12 canvas.

I have recently came across this quote and simply fell in love with it and took it one step further by applying it on to my art work.

I really love the way this turned out, especially the colours. Hope this inspires you to paint your heart out. Well, everyone I am wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and the best 2012 evah sistah's !!
Mwahhh !!!!

Payton with a Bandana

Happy Tuesday everyone, and are you all counting down for  the holidays ?  Well my kids can't wait to be home over the Christmas break which means I have to come up with stuff to do to keep them entertained and busy.  

Today I wanted to share with you Payton and also a funny story that has to do with this image.  When I got this image I have to be honest with you I could not figure out her hair and I thought she was wearing a bandana.  So, I email Emily and asked her, " how the heck do you colour her head, is she wearing a bandana or is that her hair ".  I emailed her this image and she was such a sweetheart about it, she said she loved my take on the image with the bandana but her whole head is the hair.  Now come on please tell be if  she looks cute with the bandana.

Here is the second take on the same card but with no bandana.

Well I thought this was a cute story to share with you all, regardless I thing she looks very cool both ways but I seem to like her with the bandana...hehehe

Thats all for today folks, keep warm and happy crafting !!

Bellariffic Sketch

It's a cold and dreary day here in Toronto and I have made myself a lovely cup of Dark Chocolate and Truffle flavoured gourmet coffee, yummmmmy !!! The kids are off to school and I have a nice and quiet house to write up my Friday post.

This week was a lovely Sketch done by Robinabella and here is my creation.

I used another Mo image called Cupcake Princess Violet and you can get her in rubbah over at Stamping Bella. I coloured her up with my prisma pencil crayons and used a touch of Copic markers for the hair so it can stand out a bit more.  The DP I went with is called Salt Air from Cosmo Cricket.  I had this mini pack for quite sometime now but never had the chance to use it so I gave it a whirl with Princess Violet !!

This is the last Bellariffic Friday post for the year 2011 but that does not mean the bellas won't be sharing any more lovely cards with you so please do check back cause there is more to come.  

The year 2012 is going to be quite Sketchy, meaning half of the year will be filled with awesome sketches, and don't we all love them !! To give you all a head start, here is a look at our first Bellariffic Challenge for 2012 which will be due on January 12.  You have plenty of time so we sure hope you will participate !!

Have a wonderful weekend everybody and thanks for stopping by !!

Irma and Vieno

This week in Bella land the challenge was to create an all white card except the image itself.  I chose a stamp which had enough detail to colour up and really stand out against the beautiful and simple white background, and that's  why I went with Irma and Vieno.  This image is available in rubbah over at the Stamping  Bella store along with many more Mo Manning images.

On Wednesday my dear friend Paula who also is my ultimate idol and  mentor when it comes to colouring with prisma pencil crayons did the same image and you have got to go check it out cause it is drop dead GORGUSSS.  I sure have to go through many many set's of pencil crayons to reach just a quarter of this ladies talent.

Now lets get to the details in my card.  I stamped my two characters on  Bellas Bestest White paper with Memento black Ink and coloured up my image with Prisma Pencil Crayons.  As you can see I put in a lot of colouring detail and finished it off with fine glitter on the girls hats and coarse glitter for the snow. The background white paper was embossed with the cuddle bugs big circle embossing folder. 

Next weeks challenge is a Sketch done by our very talented Robinabella, so lets take a look at it shall we.

Don't you just love this sketch, she sure did an awesome job with it and can't wait to get busy and I hope you can play along with the rest of us babes and sistah's.  All you have to do is email your card to by next Thursday to have a chance to win not $ 20.00 but  $ 40.00 next week.  Know how is that for awesome !!!!

Thanls for stopping by everyone and have a wonderful weekend.

Oh so Bright and Merry with Mavis

I love the month of December, full of festivities of the holidays, decorations and bright colours just warm up my heart.

This weeks challenge was a holiday card and I went with  Mavis wearing Holly. Rather then using the more traditional colours of red and green, I opted more with Green and Pinkish. I wanted Mavis to match with the DP so that's the reason she turned out with a Pink outfit.

The photo below is a closer look at Mavis where you can see more of the colouring detail.  I also have to mention that I love the banner die from Spell Binders Nestabilities. They are absolutely perfect for your sentiments and also adds that perfect finishing touch and even better,  Emily has it available in her store so check it out.

I stamped my image on bellas bestest white paper with Memento Black Ink. To bring her to life, I coloured Mavis using a combination of Copic Markers and Prisma pencil crayons.

Next weeks challenge is a white card, the only thing that can have colour is your image.  Be sure to email your card to Emily by Thursday evening.

Have a great weekend everyone !!
