CHNC Christmas Challenge - 8th January 2022

This week's option is to  upcycle or use something old.  I chose to upcycle a Christmas card I received.  Most of the cards I receive from this friend have easily removed parts.

So from one card, I made two new cards.  Glitter got a bit messy on the glossy card (it was 38 degrees celsius and things were very liquidy.

Unicorn Challenge 4th January 2022

This month's theme at The Unicorn Challenge is "Lots of Layers"  Now last year was a long hard year for me and I was feeling a bit more than weary for the last few months.  My weird humour cut in when I saw the theme and thought why not! Lets layer layers!

The images are from Twistoon, called Six Geese are laying"  coloured with copic pens and lots of fussy cutting, they have been layered onto a card base that I have painted with Paper Artsy Fresco Finish Acrylic paint.  The nest are from a twig punch.

Hope you all get a good laugh to start 2022

Get Creative - 3rd January 2022

Starting off 2022 with an Anything Goes, optional New year.  I have used an image call Happy new Year Cow from Imagine That (sadly Kris has closed her shop) .

I made a fat page, well that is what we called many years ago.  I think the 4" x 4" square name referred back to a fat quarter in quilting.  Anyway, I can't find any references anymore, so lets say I made a square for my new bullet diary, which unlike other years does not have a spiral spine, so things will have to be kept less bulky than usual.

Coloured digitally and then shaded with copic pens.  Added glitter and stamped date completed the square.

 Wouldn't be surprised if you can't read my scrawl, the wording is:

HEALTH for those near and far
NEVER to have to go into lockdown again
a Year full of fun
of course winning the lotter would be great
