31 Day Challenge 2015 Day 2: Orange

Oh boy, editing orange photographs is horrible. I swear it has taken me longer to edit these pictures than it took me to actually paint the design. Ugh. I’m glad today is over!

From The Vault: Double Half Moons

From The Vault: Double Half Moons

So in amongst working on the 31 Day Challenge for this year (I realise everyone else did this in September, but life has a way of not giving me a break and I’m still doing it!) I’ve been reorganising my picture folders. It turns out I have a lot of really cool designs I never got around to posting. I’m not in the habit of wasting work so I’ll be sharing them with you anyway! Here is one from last year’s 31 Day Challenge that never made it as far as the blog. The theme was Half Moons.

Fairytale Pastel Stamping

Fairytale Pastel Stamping

I’d hoped that when I finally posted back in February I was back but it was not to be – life has just been too hectic! I have something for you today, and it is stamping. My stamping plate collection has exploded over the last several months, as has my stamper collection… but more on that another time. When I picked up a few of the most recent Barry M offerings, the Speedy Dry collection, there was one plate that jumped right out at me and begged to be paired with them:

Quickie post! I found a great design by Lucy’s Stash and I thought I’d use some nail art pens I was given for my birthday to try and recreate it.

31 Day Challenge 2014 Day 12: Stripes

Happy Friday! I hope you all have a fun filled weekend ahead of you! (And that not too many of you have to work – I remember working weekends, and it wasn’t always fun.) Today is the Stripey day of the challenge, and instead of go overboard, I have kept it simple. This is also the introduction of Moyra to my blog. Blog, meet Moyra. Moyra, meet Blog.

Spring in Hawaii

Spring in Hawaii

Not sure why I thought this would be an appropriate title. The flower stamp always makes me think of Hawaiian shirts – the bass player in my band certainly has a few!

I have had the Bundle Monster 2012 plate for some time but have really, really struggled to get them to work properly. I now have a squishy stamper for MoYou and I’ve just about got the hang of using it so this is a much better attempt at stamping than I have managed for a long while!
