Elena Seaside - Suzi Blu Stamp

I really am im love with Suzi Blu Stamps !!!! this one is call Elena Seaside and I think she maybe my favourite. I coloured her using watercolour pencils and yummy eucalyptus stickles, this is such a gorgeous colour. I distressed around the edge of my image using tim holtz distress ink. The scrummy papers are Prima Madeline, this stack of papers are soooo stunning and the colours are yummy. The paper rose I made using my Tim Holtz tattered floral die (this should be in stock some time next week).
I hope everyones week is going well. Just to let you know aswell that the website is super fast now, my website designers moved it onto a new bigger server and it now it works really quick :) talk soon xxx

Stampotique Love

Im in love with the new Stampotiques, I have all the new stamps in stock here I just think these mermaids are to die for !!! I can see me using these babies alot in the near future :)

Ive used Claudine Hellmuths Landscape Green and Charcoal Black paint for the background, loving these paints you can find them here for £4.99 a tub, bargin !!!!

Ganges Art Journal Page

Hey everyone, thank you so much to everyone who has wished me luck with my new online shop, I really do appreciate it. The website has turned out fab and I hope you all love it too xxx

I made this journal page a couple of days ago, I used scrummy Claudine Hallmuth Paints for the background. Most of the papers were send to me from the lovely Angela, thank you darling xxx I also used some gorgeous 7Gypsies paper tape, loving this stuff !!!! The photo is one I took of my lovely hubby while we were floating down the Ganges in December, I really love this photo Jay was so chilled out and had nodded off and I couldn't resist taking a sneeky pic. The lotus flower I print out from the computer and then added stickles too for a bit of sparkle.

Thank you again for all of your lovely words and dont forget to enter in my giveaway if you havent already xxxx

p.s. does anyone know how I can get my giveaway post to stay at the top of  my posts???

Claudine Hellmuth !!!

Morning everyone, hope your all well :) Im here for the next sneeky peek and if your an art journaller these are FAB !!! although they will also work great for card marking, scrapbooking, altered art whatever you heart desires as they really are so versitile. I am in love with Claudine Hellmuth everything !!! for this page I used the studio paint line, these acrylic paints are gorgeous and so easy to use. All the boarders, flowers and rain drops are made using Claudines stamps, firstly you use the foam stamp with studio paint then once its dry you go over the painted image with the coordinating clear stamp, Ive used the doodles set for this journal page. I dont know where this quote is from it just popped into my head as soon as I saw the raindrop stamps although I dont think there is much chance of this being original so im sure ive read it somewhere and my brain has stored it for this very occassion hehehehe

2 more sleeps !!!! not long now till the launch of Artful Splodger its all getting very exciting and the web designers and myself are super busy getting all the last mintue bits and pieces finished. Cant wait for you all to see the website it looks amazing :)

I'll leave you with a couple of close up of those scrummy stamps xxx
