2017 January Progressive Challenge - I Must Protest!

Well its the start of a new year and its time to make some resolutions for 2017! Now I'm not a big believer of making Resolutions as too often we make ones that are just to hard to keep.  So as I've done for a number of years now I only make resolutions that I know I can and will keep.  

This year I've made the promise to myself that I will make and find more time to do some colouring. So I've signed up to a January Progressive Challenge - I Must Protest! By Boobel Stamps

Lisa the designer has given us this stamp to colouring with a blank board to add our own sologon. 

 Here's my colouring

And this is the finished card x

I used the collection from Aimee Harrison called Feeling Festive, as I love the colours used here very traditional. 

This photo is of me and my class mates back in 1974 I am the tall one at the back.

Here's my coloured in digi stamp...

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...

Gottapixel - Master Scrapper 2016 Week 1

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. 

Week #1

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.
