Sprites again, and again, and again xx



Unit from Tonic


I love this unit from Tonic. It took quite a while to build and I did get in a bit of a muddle decorating it. Unfortunately how ever many times I wrote to Tonic and anyone connected with them no-one would answer my questions. Not very good Customer Service at all. Colin built the Frame and constructed the drawers and I die-cut the decorations and painted and stamped and varnished every piece. I had a whole sheet of greyboard left over...humm.. would have been better if I had known what to do with them. Never mind.
I printed out all the beautiful Sprites again onto neenah and coloured them with promarkers and spectrum noir pencils. I stuck them onto the sides and back and varnished them I then added wild orchid crafts flowers and a whole load of gesso.

Paper Doll

Background Everland Book 1
for Mischief Circus
I adore paper dolls. Rick has drawn the sweetest little paper doll along with her set of clothes.. I know these are going to be so popular.
Printed onto neenah and coloured with promarkers and spectrum noir pencils then imported into Craft Artist 2 where I removed the white surround and placed the images within the pages of a 'book'.

A Job is a Job

Just for a bit of a change I wanted to show you what was happening  after the last Halloween disaster at the Tea Shop. Everything is almost back to 'normal' just a bit of tidying up to do. The old Executioner had found some skulls running amok in the old Manor House... this would never 'do'. Not now that there was a trainee Executioner waiting in the wings. This last Voodoo Skull Man was proving a bit hard to catch so some traps will have to be laid. Maybe tomorrow after a good night's sleep and a chat in the morning with some of the ghosts....
Printed onto neenah and coloured with promarkers and spectrum noir pencils.
