Keep it Simple.... at TioT's


A new challenge theme over begins over  at
Try it on Tuesdays today.....

Keep it Simple..

I have to admit that this was not an easy theme for me
 as I decided to leave a lot of white space on this digital card.
 If I had been able to use inks etc [ I have trouble  gripping and holding things these days]
   I would have been in real trouble keeping this card simple as I just love  inky backgrounds.

WE hope you will share your interpretations of our theme
and join  us at Try it on Tuesdays

Use a Stencil....... at. TioT's


A new theme  ... Use a .Stencil  begins today at

After the first  inking  and using of   the stencil image,  it was   sprayed with water to get a second impression  to fill up a bit of white space in the corner. Photo of the page taken , it was then 
added  into  the computer generated program I use [notes in my side bar]. 
 to create  these two fun digital cards for friends,
 I know the quotes will appeal to and  make them smile.

This is  second fun card I made with the same stencil background

WE hope you will join us at TioT's and show us how you  interpret this new theme, please call over to see what the DT have been  creating  are  to share with you there.

Rainbow Colours at TioT's.


'Rainbow Colours'..
is the  theme for the next two weeks over at
I 've made a colourful journal page giving these two friends
 permission to paint  their playroom walls and not to worry if they got paint  on the  floor.
I think they really enjoyed themselves once they realised they
 were not going to be in trouble for using so many colours. 
  as adults we  would think this looked a real ..... MESS
 but to the children it would  have been freedom
 to experiment with paint and colour.
I started with a mop up page added sponged on dabs of paint then added the figures
 and words from the digital computer program I use.

We hope you will join us at TioT's and have fun using colours.

Hello Spring.... at TioT's


Hello Spring....
is the new challenge theme over at
I decided to make this any occasion card using springtime colours.
 A stamped fussy cut  image which if you take a quick glance
 could be a an open daffodil flower. 
Its  on a brusho coloured background page,
 which has been waiting for many months to be used in some way.
 I'm sure we all have many papers like this.
We look forward to seeing you you interpret this Spring  theme  ,
which depending on what part of our world you live in 
could look totally different to mine  here in the U.K.

Lets get Messy

 A new theme over at Try it on Tuesdays 

and some exciting news.

We are welcoming Pia and Viv to the team.

 Please pop over to say hello and follow the links to their Blogs.

As always you will be able to see how we interpreted the new  theme and we look forward to seeing your versions of the topic.

Lets get Messy......

In the past a messy page would most likely  have been  binned, whether it was a hands on version with spilt paints and mop ups or a digital page gone wrong.  Now I keep them to use,  some like this one  as a background for my digital   images

On the left is a photo of how my messy background began.

A mop up  page on kraft card, added using computer programs [notes in my sidebar] into a digital journal .

 It looked dull, so I added some digital splodges of white, I thought the colourful bird images , brightened it up. 

I hope this illustrates that you can get messy in many ways when it comes to crafting. 

Its all about how comfortable you feel with what you created,

 its your mess and if others should like what you made that would be a bonus.

Hope you enjoy the theme and I look forward to seeing your messy creations.
