New Release - Carly Marley IMG385

Hi Oddballs - Angie here with another Inspiration Post for New Releases.

I have made another Art Journal Page using Carly Marley IMG385 a&b.


I love how it turned out and have to tell you that I am thankful that the pains I suffer aren't that chronic that the only way to ease it is in the form of Medical Marijuana.
I also hate that there is such a stigma around it for those who's need is genuine. Clearly it's by people that are lucky not to experience pain no more than a headache!

How cute is that Unicorn!

All digi images coloured with copic markers.
My Journal Page has been created with paints, Distress Oxide Inks and Distress Inks using assorted stencils and stamps.

Don't forget to use My Discount Code in the store and I hope to see your colouring of Carly!

New Release - Ginny The Gardener IMG386

Hi Oddballs - Angie here with another Inspiration Post for New Releases.

I am using Ginny the Gardener IMG386.


I decided to go ahead with a Journal Page with her this time.

Ginny is coloured with Copic Markers and then the area around her I have used Distress Oxide Inks.
LOL, I applied them using a cotton bud (Q-Tip) which is a bit unorthodox, but hey, it's how I roll!
Added some sprays of water and quite happy with the outcome.
Used my Geli Plate with a variety of paints and stencils to create my page background.
Memento Jet Black ink and various stamps used to add a bit of interest and some hand doodling with black gel pen......LOL, yes, that does need some working on. 

Hope you like her.

Don't forget you can use My Discount Code in the store!

New Release - Cinda As A Unicorn IMG384

Hi Oddballs - Angie here with another Inspiration Post for New Releases.

I am using Cinda As A Unicorn IMG384A&B.
IMG384A is first with her Neon Unicorn Horn and Unicorn Poop 💩, just to be different!



And with IMG384B, I thought I'd do one for our Africana sisters - hoping I did ok, and promise to improve!


Love them both, but my favourite is my Africana Cinda - will definitely have to start doing some more.
Both cards are very simple in designs and images coloured with my Copic Markers.
Papers used are from Prima Marketing and both are from the Time Traveller's Memories Range.

I hope you have been inspired, and I look forward to seeing how creative you can be with your Cinda Unicorn. Don't forget to pop them in the Blog Challenge so I get to see them and comment.

Thanks for reading and until next time, Happy Crafting.

New Release - Creative Planner Inserts

Hi Oddballs - Angie here with an Inspiration Post for Oddball Stamp Co's New Releases.

I am using the Creative Planner Inserts set.
You would have already seen my Veggie Veronica (IMG182) Planner page for December.
In case you didn't, here she is again.


But did you know you also get a Password Log page too!!
To start off I have used the header along with the Doodle Collage IMG107 to create my Cover page, and printed off the Password Log page.
Now I have created my Planner by printing in A5, but you can print Letter size / A4 if you choose.

I coloured up the images on collage using my Copic Markers.


How good does that look! Yep, great for the household accounts.

Now for my Crafty sites, I decided I needed to be a bit more crafty!
So again I used the Header to start my Cover page. I added 3 Suns with Faces from IMG313B and coloured with my Copic Markers, same with my Password Log sign.
As a Bonus, you get Jaz with your inserts (How cool is that!).
Again Coloured with Copic Markers, cut out with my Scan N Cut (because I hate Fussy Cutting!).
Before I glued my Jazzie in place, I grabed some inks and stamps from my stash and had a little creative moment.
Now my final process before punching the holes to put it in my Planner, was to laminate it with a another Password Log page behind it. This is to give it protection from the elements and also so I can reuse the same page over and over like a message board.


Here you can see my Password Log written on with a Sharpie - this is perfect as it is permanent until I decide to change the password, delete the account.
Easy to do, just grab a tissue and some StazOn Cleaner (or an Alcohol wipe), give a quick wipe over and clean - good as new!


How happy does Sweet Jaz look now that her Passwords are in order!

I hope you have been inspired (I do apologise for the long post), and I look forward to seeing how creative you can be with your Password Log's!

Thanks for reading and until next time, Happy Crafting.
