ART JOURNALING AT ACREATIVENEED CHALLENGE THIS MONTH

Hello to all,

This month Deena is suggesting we play with art journaling. This is my first project really and I thought I would make a diary cover with Deena's Bird flourish and script collage stamp digital image. I played with different inks and added on stenciled stars and highlighted them with white gel pen and half beads in the center. I finished it with a laquer to hold all the colors in place. 


It was quite a challenge. But really, alot of fun to create. Thank you Deena, this really pushed my creative juices.

Now we invite you all to try yourself out at this month's challenge at ACREATIVENEED BLOG. Anything is possible with this kind of creativity and sky's the limit.

I HEART BOOKS AT A CREATIVE NEED CHALLENGE

Hello to all,

Isn't this a beautiful image and yes it is a flower made of different hearts. So this month's challenge at A CREATIVE NEED is Whatever passion you have show us in a card or project of any kind. Be inspired Deena's images, I used the pretty flower image using the big letters in books so you can imagine what my passion is. Be it reading, or trying to write some short stories to publish one of my own one day. Yes I love everything about books. From the first page where you get to read all about the author, the year of publishing,etc... I go right to the end and look for how many pages there are in it. Then I read the acknowledgements from the author so I know a bit more about the person behind the book. Well that is it for me today.

Thanks for stopping by and make sure you play this month so I can stop by your blog and have a peek at your work too.

EARLY BIRTHDAY CARD

Hello to all,  

I decided to play a little yesterday and was inspired by the beautiful cards at A DAY FOR DAISIES  challenge. The theme is ombre. I wasn't sure but being french I thought maybe it meant shadowing...but all in all I followed mostly the DT's backgrounds. I hope it's right. I like how it looks. Hope you guys too.


I also entered my card in the sweetest thing challenge using Karen's cool sketch, and played also the color challenge on SCS

Thank you for stopping by, I always enjoy your comments.

A CREATIVE NEED CHALLENGE FOR 2015

Good morning and happy new year to all. 
May you have the most wonderous year ever.

For the new year Deena, our master artist and chief thought we should go with an original theme
Anything NEW, ie; new home, new born baby, newly weds.

We also want to welcome our new team designers Merlina and Kitt.
Be sure to drop by their blog and see what they have to show.

I used the his and hers towel. Kind of reminds me of the early sixties trend in the Lucille Ball show.

Hope you have fun with this challenge.
And of course there are always fun images to be won from 

Again best wishes in the new year.

IT'S SNOW TIME AGAIN AT A CREATIVE NEED CHALLENGE FOR DECEMBER

Greeetings to all,

Guess I am in a festive mood today. Snow started falling on wednesday night but it melted a bit. What with the warmer temps' and then it gets cold again. Anyway, we didn't let that stop us at A CREATIVE NEED CHALLENGE for December is snow time for us Quebecois anyway. He, he, he!

So take out your cardstock, be it white, kraft, design papers and tear them up to make beautiful snow scapes.Or use your punches, I used a blue die snowflake I had in my stash to embellish the already cool image from Deena's beautiful mind, it's simply called SNOW HAPPY. And doesn't it make you smile just looking at the sweet expression on this child's face.

Finally, I used white puffy paint to make a whirlwind of a snowstorm scene in my second card. I love the little punched circles I added with foam tape to give them a little depth. The idea is to create a snow scene, right.
So there you go,
have fun
and keep well.

A DAY FOR DAISIES AUTUMN CHALLENGE 108

Hello everyone,

I made this card for the a day for daisies challenge 108 krafty tags, but first for Sarah Selecky. She is a beautiful person, talented writer and even a more a woman with a generous heart and knows how to use it and her talents to encourage writers in any stages of their career. I experiences her kindness since last june of this year. A very sweet friend Pat had sent me the link to an online writing class she offers to the world on the web.  (Story is a state of mind)So I joined and you can read about here on my writing blog; AS I WRITE I BREATHE I still find it very hard to write and share with the whole world but I am getting there. I have notebooks filled with stories waiting to be shared. 

Anywho I should go on about the card I sent to her this morning. I thought Autumn blessings was just the right kind of sentiment for what my heart needed to share with this beautiful person.

I also want to thank Tammy for such beautiful images and Arielle of course for the sentiment.

I wish you all a magnificient day.

Kindly, Peggyxo
