So cute - Inspirational post for ADU

Sooo cute, pointillism, go on, give it a go!

Here I have used the inspirational post for All Dressed Up to tell you all about Pointillism, and here is the Wikipedia explanation:

Pointillism /ˈpwɛntɨlɪzəm/ is a technique of painting in which small, distinct dots of pure color are applied in patterns to form an image.

I thought it might be fun to apply this method of colouring an image, and I am quite pleased with the result, the technique actually compliments the cute little image really well.  It probably took as long to do as "proper" colouring,  but give it a go, its fun!!

Life is good

Hello my lovelies, so nice of you to stop by my little bloglet, today's project is for the fortnightly challenge over at That Craft Place, the theme is sentiment, and I have used one of Lisa's own stamps. They are fabulous stamps and worth a visit to Lisa's online facebook shop to take a look!

So here is my creation for this challenge, I have used the saying Life is good, and it so is for me at the moment, I love this colour scheme, I have used the paper pad from Kaisercraft called Forget Me Not. I love this paper pad, and have used it loads over the last couple of months. I have used some gorgeous wool felt in matching colours to make the flowers, tattered lace dies for the doily's and my Silhouette Cameo to cut the 2 background layers, and butterfly which I have gilded.  I hope you like it, I think it turned out ok!

Thanks for visiting. xxx

Hello,  and eeeeeek I'm late, in my haste to get away for the weekend I forgot to upload my post for All Dressed Up!!!! However for those of you who are visiting after 5pm on the 2nd of November all of this is useless information!

Well here we are with another fabulous challenge over at All Dressed Up, and I am using a gorgeous image to create my wreath, which has now pride of place at my daughters house... well I am always looking for new homes for my makes, and my family are inundated with stuff from me!

I cut all the leaves and flowers on my fabulous Silhouette Cameo, and the graphics to make my photo was done on my Serif Craft Artist Professional, which is rather good!!

Thanks for stopping by,  and as I am away on my holidays I shall now tuck into fish'nchips!!
