Day 1 of April Muse

some of the members of Smeared and Smudged are taking part in a 3 day blog hop called April Muse. Today's posts are to be something foolish or fun. I am sharing something I did to make a friend laugh. I know I had a package full of bits I would be posting soon so I thought I would add a stamp or 2 to the front of it. Only one of two turned into covering it...I had way too much fun doing so too!
All of the stamps used are Smeared Ink Rubber stamps.

Here is the blog roll so you can go and leave everyone some love :)

Today is also the first day of the new challenge over at Smudgy Antics, so if you are using any Smeared Ink stamps this month be sure to add your pieces over there. For my DT piece there today I have created a Bookmark using one of the stamps from Lost Dreams rubber set.

User more than one image with IWC

I got a bit lost today with the time...well and the day (that's what happens when I'm not at work!) So I'm a little late posting this.

The current challenge over at IKES WORLD CHALLENGES is to create something using more than one image. For my piece I went for some colouring therapy and created this scene using images from IKE's Zombie Pet shop sets.

Double whammy

I've got 2 DT hats on with today's post. We have got a brand new challenge over at Quoth the Raven and it's my day to share over at Smudgy Antics. The theme at Quoth the Raven is Dream On so I used the Smeared Ink Quoth the Raven rubber set and the words from the E.A.Poe poem A Dream within a Dream to make this journal page.

Paper Piecing with IWC

I was totally gutted when I realised that my comment hadn't gone through for the bloody valentine hop, so instead I'm sharing what I made today. It's a double page spread with a tag insert, the stamps I used are from the Bloody Valentine set and the Love Li'l Grumpies set.

There are only a few days left to get your entries into this months challenge. You can join in the fun by adding your Smeared Ink makeshere

Breathe - A Dedication to Susan Salyer

I've been doing more journaling recently, I rarely share these with anyone though as they are normally personal to me and often include painting or doodling which I know I'm not very good at. I purposely don't try to make things look real, I'm no artist and don't really know where to start, so instead I just do my own think like always and what happens, happens. Anyway I am waffling back to the point, it was a dear friend Susan Salyer who first encouraged me to journal, she had a confidence in me that I didn't, she is such a wonderful woman who has been through some hard times and is currently grieving. I wanted to make something with Susan in mind, and although this page didn't turn out how I had planned in my head I had to go with it and this is what I got.
The idea was that no matter how terrible things are, just breathe one breathe at a time, take one step at a time and eventually it will become easier and it will all be okay.

I will add at this point that the black and blue splatters wasn't supposed to happen, I was taking the lid off the black paint and 2 big blogs full onto the page, I had a brief moment of muttering, before thinking oh what the heck and flicked more on, and then added some blue flicks too.

So there you have it, Susan know that you are in my thoughts and prayers and that I love you lots.
