Little Girls memory album

This is such a good value collection. Six beautiful little girls and the word Butterfly and two extra little Butterflies
by 
  

These are my first projects as part of the Diddybags Design Team.. such a lovely selection.. each little image is a tag or card front or a memory album embellishment or...... so many ideas just pop into my head. Love, love them. There is a Challenge over at the Diddybags blog so please add your projects for the chance to win some amazing images.
I printed these gorgeous images onto neenah and coloured them with promarkers and spectrum noir pencils. I then imported them into Craft Artist 2 where I removed the white surround and added small background just to the images. Then I framed each image and placed them on the pages of the 'book' I added some embellishments and sentiments and da dah!!

Plummage Metalique



by Rick St. Dennis

I loved taking my time colouring the carriage with sparkly gel pens and I was so frustrated when my scanner didn't pick up on all the glittery gorgeousness. Hubby came to the rescue in a kitchen cupboard with his trusted box brownie and da dahhh..... sparkles. So now the sparkles have a little frame of their own.
This is such a fantastic steampunk image, so elegant and yet so very steampunk.
Printed onto neenah and coloured with a few promarkers and loads of gel pens. Then into Craft Artist 2 for the removal of the white surround and the addition of some steampunk stuff.

Isn't she gorgeous! Beautifully drawn by Cheri with a perfect 80's hairdo. 
Printed onto neenah and coloured with promarkers and spectrum noir pencils then imported into Craft Artist 2 where I removed the white surround and built up a background.
Humm...Now then, what was I getting up to in 1984? Moving back to England from Munich. Traveling to Beirut and coming 2nd in the World Championships in a sport. Getting engaged the first time round. 1984 was a very good year.

I did the same for the car. I then removed the white surround and added the background.

Octavia

Polkadoodles

I have a program called Craft Artist 2 so I opened up the Digikit Creator and imported everything into separate sections.. this made it easier to see what I was playing with. In the embellishment section I found this lovely round frame and in my materials section I found a paper-perfect for the scene I was building. I brought the frame onto my workspace, then the chosen paper. I moved the paper to the back then I clicked again on the paper to be able to manipulate it. I used the rubber to remove the paper from the outside of the frame. I then chose a tree and placed it within the frame. I clicked on stamp mode and added several more trees. I clicked on the fence and placed it in front of the trees using the stamp option to make a long fence. I chose Octavia with the fox and placed her centrally within the frame. I added the sleigh and some holly and poinsettas. I used the shadow option to add to the frame, sleigh, frame and flowers. I then added the sentiment.
As I am still on holiday it is lovely to have enough interesting images and embellishments and everything to carry on my crafting.

Octavia The first time

Polkadoodles
Sparkle behind the Unicorn's Horn Special effects 3
for Mischief Circus
The lovely collection has everything I need to craft on holiday. I downloaded a few pieces into Craft Artist 2.  Here I used one of the backing papers and added a fence from the embellishments.I then turned the fence into a stamp and was able to have a fence going the width of the background. I then placed the Unicorn with a glow behind his horn and of course Octavia.
