Bubble gum - Digital Whisper

Good afternoon, I'm back again, this time with a few digital makes and a poem!  I don't often write poetry to share, but with the attacks on Manchester and London recently I thought I'd share, It's not perfect but it says what I want it to say!

I also created a digital page for Digital Whisper, I love playing along with these challenges, the themes are always so good and they do get you working outside your comfort zone..

Digital Page

I have used Northern Lights paper, Monster High images I had in my collection, wording is computer generated.

Flower Girl - MMC

Good afternoon everyone, sorry my post is somewhat late, I wasn't feeling that great yesterday and blogger is really messing me around with loading issues every time I log in.  So scheduling two blog posts yesterday was a nightmare.  Anyway feeling better today.  I hope you are all enjoying the lovely weather!

So today Making Memories Crafting is having it's 6th Challenge. Of course we would love you to join in the fun!

Anything Goes / Bingo Board

Our amazing sponsor is


I originally created two projects for this challenge, but the first one I decided I didn't like!  So this is the one I decided to go with.  I joined a group for Junk Journals and this is the cover of the journal.

I have used Cardboard for the cover ( Cardboard from dog biscuits box)  The cover was covered with some Hessian which I freyed around the edges.  I punched the flowers from two different size flower punches onto card.  The centres all have small pearls.  I crotched two lager flowers. I then added a doily, the little envelope is made from white paper and filled with plastic just because.  The little flower is from a Christmas Angel.  The butterflies are die cuts and the image is from Bugaboo - Flower Girl.  The image has been coloured using Promarkers, around the image I have used little pin pricks around the edge just for decoration.

Bathing Beauty

Good afternoon everyone, I hope you have had a good week, here in the UK we are getting ready for another Bank Holiday.  It's going to be hot hot hot, or so the weather forecasters say.  They are also predicting thunder storms but we shall see.  So do you have any plans yet!  I shall be having a BBQ and just some nice relaxing time with family and friends, may do some crafting as well of course...

So over at The Three Muses this week the challenge theme is Vintage Bathing Beauties, what a fabulous theme, as I really love Vintage, so had great fun creating this!

Vintage Bathing Beauties

I used an image from my vintage stash and blurred it in PicMonkey, the sea gulls are from my stash, then the whole creation was created in GIMP.

Love is like a butterfly!

Good evening everyone, well it's been a manic few days, with not enough time in the day to complete the things I had planned...

So today I thought I would catch up on some much needed craft time.  So I decided to create a digital page.  This is what I did!

I have used GIMP and different digital elements from my stash, not sure where they are from.

Altered CD / Flower Ballerina

Hi!  Hope your all having a good Friday, nearly the weekend, do you have any plans.. I'm not sure what we are doing tomorrow but Sunday my bestie is coming to visit, so that will be good.  Not how much crafting will be done!

Last night I came across a file on my computer with a whole lot of digi images, I don't really do a lot of crafting with digi images, I have trouble colouring them, but I found some amazing images by Aurora Wings, so the colouring took a while to do and I actually used one pencil and some chalk. I also decided to purchase some die cut Butterflies and Leaves in white, I don't have to many because it's not very often I create using these items, but this is what I did..

Altered CD
Flower Ballerina

I have used a Christmas CD that we had two copies of

Vintage card!

Hi!  How has your weekend gone, all good I hope.  I have been busy cleaning windows as you do on a Sunday morning lol.  I've also altered a candle which I'll add tomorrow and created a digital card. I've really enjoyed crafting today, It does take a considerable amount of time to create digitally and i'm pleased with how this card turned out.

I have used Photoshop to create this card and used different digital elements .

I would like to enter into the following challenges!
