It's been a while but.......

Hello there!

Had a fantastic day over at AFTH on Saturday. The Birthday girl She came along with us and I had bought her a birthday girl badge that she had to wear all day much to She delight! Her friend Gez came along too as well as my Mum. Gez had bought her a balloon which we tied to her chair and had bought her a cake  too :)

Here's She with her birthday cake unfortunately I didn't get the balloon in - Doh!

She's birthday card that I made her

A few months ago now I went over to AFTH on a  tastier day and we were taught by three different people for one hour, this is when I discovered Kate Crane and her Journalling and I fell in love with. We made a tag that day and afterwards I wanted to make She a card with Kate's style, and of course it had too be orange which is She's Favorite  colour. I had a lovely day yesterday enough though my art Journalling didn't quite go to plan. I need to practice using acrylic paints as this is something I never used to create backgrounds, but I will show one page which is still a work in progress, as they say!  
Work in progress as they say! but it is growing on me :0)

Thanks for a lovely day out and getting nice and messy :0)

Here I've made a card for Jane who has finished working in the shop over at Dawn's so I made it for her and her daughter Caity

The picture is a bit dark and I did shadow stamp over the words in silver so you could see the words betters. I love these Octopede stamps I think they are cool and I found out the lady who designs these is only 18! sorry I can't remember her name but I wish I had her Job at that age lol!
I've used the Dylusion ink spray to create the background and then blew the puddles of ink around the page with a straw I haven't done that in years....since I was a kid funny how techniques come back round lol! I used one of Dyan's stamps for the wings it's a bit more consistent than me trying to draw them although I did draw the wings on she's card.
Here is an ATC that I got from Gez who I think is a very talented lady, thank you Gez
My ATC from Gez lovely isn't it?

Hope you are all well and thanks for looking ;0)
take care
