Oodles of Doodles in La-La Land


This week In La-La Land we are using Oodles of Doodles. I have been admiring lots of zentangle art on Pinterest lately and thought this challenge might be the perfect opportunity to try it out myself. The Paper Doll Marci's are perfect for this sort of treatment but I have to admit it took me a few goes before I was happy with it....but it was oooooh so FUN!

 Each Tuesday members of the La-La Land DT will be showcasing projects using the current kits. Today is my turn. I hope you like these fun projects :)


I used my Cameo to create my Fall moon shaped card. The main piece is cut twice and then hinged on the back piece. I have also taken off a slice at the bottom of the card to make sure it stands up.


For this little cutie I found a pink leopard print and digitally paper pieced Marci. I have done a tutorial on how to do this - you can find it HERE.

Aurora Wings Challenge - A Touch of Darkness


There's a new monthly challenge starting over at Aurora Wings Challenges and it's......


I've used the STUNNING Secret Kiss (Dark Goth Mermaid with Skull) and printed her out onto some Bearly Mine Designs digital paper before colouring her in. I had meant to colour her up a little darker but some days my copics seem to have a mind of their own and she ended up in shades of gold and teal. 

Don't forget to check out the rest of the AMAZING DT inspiration on our BLOGWe also have a very active Facebook Fan Group with additional contests, challenges and inspiration.  We hope to see you there.

Copics Used - Skin (E13, E11,E00, E000, R20, R11) plus C4, C2, R46, E43, E41, YR27, YR24, YR23, YR21, BG75, BG57, BG53, BG49, BG10

Using Washi Tape in La-La Land


This week in La-La Land we are playing with Washi Tape. I used 3 different patterned tapes and stuck them to my card on an angle to create a fun background. A very simple technique but it added a great effect, especially for a boy's card. A die cut sentiment and snowflakes finished off a fairly CAS design.

It's All About Dad at Make it Crafty


This weekend we Aussies are celebrating Father's Day and Make it Crafty have brought a fun new line of Dad images out to celebrate - check them all out HERE. There are not only dads but kids and scenes to play with. I've mixed 3 of the images - Gamer Dad, Gamer Girl and Gamer Boy - but you can also get all 3 in a bundle HERE. These 3 represent my own family and I love seeing them all play together - although with my daughter living overseas it's something I miss. 

I have merged the images onto 2 different patterned digi papers from Bearly Mine Designs. I butted them together to give the impression of wallpaper and a floor. I love doing this with my digis as it sets a scene before I even start to colour.

Happy Father's Day to ALL the dads out there - hope you have some fun with YOUR family :)

Copics Used - Skin {E11, E04, E00, E000, R22, R20, R11} plus R39, R27, R24, R22, Y21, Y19, T6, T4, E18, E15, E13, C10, C8, C7, C6, C4, C2, BG99, BG96, BG93, B99, B97, B95, B93, B91, G7, G5, G00, 100

Sketch Time in La-La Land


This week in La-La Land we are creating using this sketch. I am in need of a few boy's cards so Luka came out to play again. I used some simple banners, enamel dots, glittery chipboard letters and die cuts to put together a little scene for Luka - I am quite happy with how bright and fun it turned out :)

It's Back to School in La-La Land


This week in La-La Land we are celebrating Back to School. For us Aussies this is a strange time of year to celebrate this as our school year runs the same as the calendar year. 

I chose to use Retro Luka - maybe because we were watching Grease the other day - LOL. I typed out and printed off the sentiment on my computer and added texture with dies and embossing.
