RESTORING THE PARTHENON

Hi Folks,
I hope you are ready to enjoy your weekend :-)
I have spent the last couple of days restoring the Parthenon LoL  Well, it's one that I made a few years ago now for a friend who had an outdoor train set. He had a space with a small hill that I thought would be perfect, so I made this for him as a surprise. :-) When he moved back to the UK he gave it to friends, who now have it in their garden. It was looking a little sad so it came home for some 'tarting up'. :-D  It's just waiting now for a couple of coats of yacht varnish and it's all set to go.





It stands about 12 inches tall and is made with a combo of wood and plastic tubes covered in plaster :-)

Thanks for dropping in.
Happy crafting xxxx

SMEARED INK REUNION BLOG HOP



Hi everyone and thank you for popping in.
Here I am with my contribution to the SMEARED INK Re-union BLOG HOP.
I miss having fun with the Girls back in the days. We got up to some larks and the creativity was really free and easy. We could do anything we wanted and it sometimes got really, really Dark  LoL  Aaaah - we had so much fun xxx

I have made a 'semi Dark' paper bag album using all Smeared Ink images and papers, and some odd snippets from my stash and some die cutters.
I stitched all the pieces on my sewing machine.
I've only made 2 of these babies before but this one is a bit smaller cuz they take foreverrrrrr :-D

The cover is made from a paper bag I got some shoes in. All the inside base is either red or black card and all the printed papers are from SMEARED INK along with the images. Flowers and bead trims are from my local Greek shops :-) It all ties closed with a thick black shoelace.
I am going to make lots of extra tags and journal cards to fill all the pockets :-)
I used the old SMEARED INK logo for the front of my album.

I CAN FLY.... MAYBE !!

Hello Peeps,
Here I am with my creation for the "I CAN FLY" challenge over at LOST COAST DESIGNS. I have used my new PARTY DOGS set of rubber stamps that I won as a prize.
The background is a map page from an old diary, and I used the "Large Perspective Background" rubber stamp on top of it. 
I stamped the Party Dog onto brown card using black archival ink and the coloured him with Spectrum Noir markers.
I used a butterfly stamp to make the wings, stamping onto some Mulberry paper and then cut them out. The dog is popped up with 3d pads.

SCRIBBLES GDT POST #6

Hello Peeps and here I am with my creation #5 for my GDT spot at SCRIBBLES DESIGNS.



For this one I used  #440 BUNNY BUM  and #408 B BUNNY JOY
I 'paper pieced' the Bunny Bums with real rabbit fur pictures and with B Bunny Joy I tried 'melonizing' using rainbow colours. :-)
The base card was a soft rainbow card I've had for years and and now down to almost my very last piece :-(

Thanks for popping in.

I have made a card using BADGER on the outside with a silly animal pun, and CARRIE BIRTHDAY DIVA on the inside.  Sorry the pictures aren't that crisp..... I lost them in my computer crash and had to snag them back from the Scribbles GDT site :-(
