I have used 2 of the wordarts both have the water effect background

Challenge Week 2: This week's challenge we'd like you to create a layout about what you'd like to do. This is a broad topic to leave you with as many directions you would like to go.
Here's my layout for week 2.

Fonts: Alex Brush, Candy Round, Breamcatcher
My love is colouring but I don't get much free time to do it, yet I know that I need to make better choice of my time. Time wasted on FB playing games or watching TV is time I could be colouring. I have to choose to make better choices of my spare time...
Word Art from Kit used
Pocket made from paper with 2 papers added in with the photo
3 different fonts used

I didn't get this finished in time to start the challenge on the 1st as I've not been feeling to well this week but I've had nurse Roxy the pug looking after me.
I started off having to sort out my pens and doing a colour chart
This is a mix of the old pens and the new Illustrator Pens, as at the moment there are only 96 colours in the new range they will over the next few month be bring out more colours I've been told it should be around another 200 colours. I'm going to need a bigger bag lol x
This is were I go to before not being very well, I am really happy with the girls coat but I really need to get some classes in on skin and hair.
And here's the finished image I am happy with the end look although I couldn't get the face right. If you would like this digi stamp called Skating its from Mo's Digital Pencil
All I need to do is make this into a card and once made I will post a photo here...
Well this year I decided I would do this years Master Scrapper at Gottapixel, as I enjoyed it back in 2014. You are given a kit and told what is required for that weeks challenge, normally its the kit only and they use of your software but with some restrictions.
Challenge Week 1: The layout we would like you to create is a time when you've seized the day! It can be something new that you tried, something that made you proud. The topic is open to anything you've "done".
Oooh I had fun doing this, as it really makes you work hard, with having only your program and kit to work with it really pushes you...
My unique shape is the overlapping circles which are hidden behind the frame top and bottom, the fame has 3 photo's in it. The square is the matted papers, I've used 4 flowers and a mix of leaves. The 2 fonts used are Candy Round BTN and Baby Boston, and I have used 2 word titles from the kit using the 'Enjoy this Moment' as my title for this page. I have added the date to the side of the frame and there is journalling at the bottom.
Software used is Serif CraftArtist 2 I have used styles etc from this software to get this finished look, no other items were added apart from what was given to us from the kit.

Just a quick one, I have just had this come though and as its FREE! and its a trusted web site I thought I would share with you all.
Just be quick as this is time sensitive and runs out in just over 9 days.
Ooooh DPD have just been and I have my new pens! I have to say my first impressions of the pens are good. The pen is a bit slimmer than the original pen see the photo (they are not as round if that makes sense). I also like that they have a number and colour name as well as a colour cap.
These remind me more of the Copic Sketch pens in look and feel and I would say that is what CC were hoping to emulate. Righ next step is to colour with them, I will be back later with photo's and what I think of them...
Well did you see Hochanda over the weekend and the new Noir Illustrator Pens? I have both the normal Noir pens and copics, I love my copics but I've had problems getting some colours and they are so expensive.
I didn't know about the new pens coming out and only happened to catch a show and at first I was sceptical as I got court out with their pencils last year when I brought the full kit only the have them bring out a new and improved set last Christmas. But I kept watching and seeing the demo and thought WOW if these are half as good as they are showing then I think I will have to try them.
Now the offer on Hochanda was £99 but that was for just 48 pens so I checked out the Crafters Companion web site and they had the complete set 96 pens for just £150 which with my 20% members discount made them just £120 a real bargain. So I ordered Sunday and they are being delivered today. I just need to get some more trays and think about selling off my other Noir pens.
Just a thought if anyone doesn't have the 20% Crafters Companion members discount but would like to get these pens for just £120 with free P&P then message me and I will happily order these for you as long as you can send me payment via PayPal or bank transfer hugs x
