Q&L #16

The new words for this fortnight’s Quote and Lyrics challenge at Craft Barn are Family and/or Thing.

My Family quote comes from a man I admire greatly, Desmond Tutu. If I was to become a believer then this is the man who could convert me! I love his sense of humour, the way he looks at life in a down to earth manner and his strong convictions.

Quotes & Lyrics #10

Number 10 of the Craft Barn’s quote and lyrics challenge is here and I am tail end Charlie again! The words this fortnight are Passion and/or Music and I had found a quote I liked almost immediately that Craft Barn had posted the words, I’d also found two images and knew which song I wanted to use so why the delay??? I am helping our daughter on her craft stall on Sunday and she suggested I bring a few things along to sell so I’ve been busy stitching so now you know why the delay!

The song that came to mind for the Music prompt is probably one of the easiest however I decided to use part of one of the verses to go with the image I found rather than the title of the song – Thanks for the music by Abba

The lovely image came from a tattoo site but suited the lyrics well I felt.

Supplies:

Stencils  by Glitzcraft Owl and Wildflower 1

Inks – Versamagic – Mango Madness, Red Magic

            Distress Ink – Spiced Marmalade

            Brilliance – Pearlescent Thyme

Stamps – Inkylicious Oriental awakening

                  Artemio Music notes

Passion

When I look at the lovely pieces of art others have created for the Craft Barn challenge I wonder which came first – the image or the quote? For my second piece it was definitely the quote and then I went hunting for an image to go with it as, again, I didn’t have a suitable stamp.

Passionate dancers

Passionate dancers

Not the best piece I have created, still it is my rubbish! I still haven’t got the hang of aligning mats straight nor is cutting straight my forte – hey ho! I wanted to keep this piece as clutter free as possible so that the silhouetted dancers stood out and added a touch of red for passion!

Supplies:

Stencil – Glitzcraft Hibiscus Trellis

Ink – Memento London fog

          Versamagic Red Magic

           Colorbox Primary

Q&L #6

I know we have a fortnight for this Craft Barn challenge but the time seems to fly past at a high rate of knots! Now there is a goodly confusion of mixed wotsits – I don’t think flight is measured in knots is it??

Many thanks for all the lovely people who have visited and left comments, all are appreciated and I am sorry for not getting around to visiting everyone’s posts. Also apologies for those whose work I cannot comment on who post on Pinterest, Facebook and G+.

Flower Power

Flower Power

The words this fortnight are Flower(s) and/or Travel over on the Craft Barn challenge . My goal is to try and use both words so we will kick off with the Flower(s); one or two other participants have use these lyrics however I make no apology for using the same lyrics, this song popped into mind as soon as I saw the words.

I downloaded part of a map showing San Francisco from the internet, the microbus (popularly known as a VW Camper but my DH who worked on these always called them by the maker’s name ) is also a downloaded image. The base is 300gsm smooth white card inked up with Distress inks Bundled Sage and Broken China; stamps are from a Cute Companions set inked up with a Colorbox Primary colours and then extra colour added with Remel pencils. The text is computer generated. Faux stitching added with a black fine tipped pen. The square of white card is mounted onto black card.

Now for something completely different!

Travels with a donkey in Cevennes

Travels with a donkey in Cevennes

I love this Robert Louis Stevenson story, it is amusingly written and tells, in part, of his woes with Modestine, his donkey, and her willful ways. For those who don’t know the story Stevenson set off to walk through the Cevennes region of France in autumn hence the muted colours. Again the image is downloaded from the internet and computer generated text. The inks are mainly Versamagic and Colorbox primary with the birds from Inkylicious Take Flight set stamped in black Archival. The red leaves are another Inkylicious stamp Oriental Awakening but I have no idea who to credit for the pine trees. Again the scene is on 300gsm smooth white card and the mounted onto black card.

I am thoroughly enjoying this challenge and hope to keep up with it! I also must visit more folks posts.
