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.

Thank you for looking x
