Dezinaworld Spot Prize Challenge - Celebrate Your Homeland

Here is my entry for Dezinaworld's Spot Prize Challenge.  The theme is 'Celebrate Your Homeland' and what better way to celebrate than to make a scrapbook page of the beautiful countryside about 10mins drive from my house.  There are 3 pictures altogether which I have cobbled together into a panorama.  I did this in my new CraftArtist program.  There are so many different things in this program I don't think I will ever be able to use them all.  I have added a .png balloon from one of Dezinaworld's steampunk collage sheets.

Just playing around at Dezinaworld Spot Prize Challenge

Just a quick post so I can enter the Spot Prize at Dezinaworld.  The challenge is to take an everyday object and change the colour to something it isn't. ???? I've confused myself now but if you look at the picture I think it will make sense and June explains it so much better than me here
I've used a steampunk frame, woven backing paper, ducks and steampunk heart and hat from different collage sheets from Dezinaworld, the flower is one I made for an ATC a while ago.  I put them all in Paintshop Pro and played around with the colours.  I made his hat pink but I think I should have used blue but I can't be bother to change it now.  Off to enter this before I forget.  Happy Crafting everyone.

Creative Cowgirls Challenge #15 - Summertime Fun

I hope everyone has had a good 2 weeks since the last time I posted.  We've just started getting the nice weather here and I think everyone is starting to feel happier that Summer is here at last.  

This fortnight the challenge at Creative Cowgirls shows this with the theme of 'Summertime Fun'.

We were given some fabulous images by our sponsor Chi Chi Memories and I was given an image from the set called 'Meaning of Love' and when I saw it I knew exactly what paper I was going to use.  The paper was from the DCWV stack 6 and some pink papermania colour card.  I used a Victorian velvet DI to colour the white card to match the trees on the paper.  The image was coloured with Promarkers on pearlized card and then copied and decoupaged (I hope you can see this on the picture).

Our Sponsor this challenge is

The winner will receive 3 images of their choice
The Winners Badge to display with pride

The TOP 3 will each receive 1 image of their choice
