Julia Spiri Coloring Book Release!!

It's finally time to spill the beans on a secret I have been so excited about! The oh so talented Julia Spiri has released her very first colouring book ( you can find it here on Amazon) , and I have been privileged enough to get to colour one of the exclusive images from it , Whimsical Fairy,  to share with you. 

I adore fairies and so working on this was a real treat for me. It's a beautifully detailed image with lots to enjoy as you colour.

I couldn't resist popping my finished piece on a card of course, but I am very much looking forward to colouring her again when I am the proud owner of my own copy of this book. 

I am entering this in the following challenges:

Don't forget to stop by Julia's Facebook page where you can share your own colourings and projects with us. We would love to see them. You can also see what the rest of my team mates have been working on over on the blog too. 

Thanks for stopping by

Sheena Douglass Alchemy Art Journal Page

It's rare that I watch the selling channels on TV but when I saw the new Alchemy range of stamps and dies from Sheena Douglass I had to have them so tuned in to her shows last weekend and hit the purchase button. I've been stalking the postie ever since, and pleased to say he arrived yesterday with these beauties! I fear he may now be deaf after hearing my squeals of delight, but wouldn't you screech if this lot arrived on your mat too?!

So much to choose from that I wasn't sure what to make first. In the end I opted for an art journal page. Over on Sheena's Inkette's Facebook fan page there's a challenge of creating something with the focus being silhouettes, so I wanted to have a go at that. This is what I came up with. The fairies are also Sheena stamps that I have had kicking around for ages. I adore fairies so must admit I felt a bit mean trapping them in potion bottles! 

I can't wait to play again tomorrow. These stamps have SO many possibilities. 

Thanks for popping by to take a look

Crafts Galore Encore April Challenge

Wow March went fast! April is now upon us so it's time for a new Anything Goes challenge at Crafts Galore Encore.

This month we are kindly sponsored by Star Stampz and Ppinky Dolls. I have been working with Cinderella from Star Stampz. She's so adorable and was great fun to colour with my copics and promarkers.

I kept my card fairly simple , just using an old but pretty paper from my stash, adding crowns and some bling.

I hope I've inspired you to play along.
