Bingo! @ Southern Girls

Hello, yes I am still around, I've been challenging myself to try something new for me but shhh it's not ready for sharing just yet.  

What I do have for you is the Southern Girls latest challenge 'bingo card'.
 I am stretching is just a little with my 'gems' I'm using the flower centres as my gems.  The spots are included in the background paper that comes with this amazing image from The Paper Shelter called the Dragon Whisperer.  I just love the little dragon.
 I've used lots of distressing and distress ink to give that aged look.  Hope you're inspired by the choices in our bingo card.  Love to see you playing along.

 Hello everyone, sorry I've been a bit missing in action lately, but I'm back with a post for you that I hope inspires you to try merging images if you haven't already tried it.  I've created this picture on one sheet of A4 Make it Colour Blending card (fabulous stuff!)

This was my very first attempt at merging images using Paint Net.  I know I've shown a few of my merged pieces since then, but I thought I'd show you this one to show that while it is far from perfect, it's still pretty good for a first attempt and I've found as I have practiced and gained experience then you can too! 

 I used Far Away Castle; Enchanted Unicorn and Exquisite Princess
Let me tell you it was at first quite daunting, this was the first time I'd tried merging images and then of course there was all that colouring ahead of me.  What I did though was work on it in sections, that broke the whole project down into more manageable pieces.

Check out the tutorial section here and also ask questions in the MIC facebook page for advice from the DT, Youtube also has some amazing tutorials.  All you need to do is try and you too can create beautiful pictures and artwork using MiC digi stamps and colouring them with your favourite media weather that be Copic or other alcohol markers, distress inks or pencils.

My creative space almost finished

I'm still in quite a mess, I've updated my creative space page with pics of how I have the new room arranged.

The phone move meant no internet for a week or so and I still have a few odds and sods to put away yet from the move.

I'm hoping to have some posts for you all soon.
