Girl's Weekend

Every year my craft group goes away for a couple of days on a retreat, which to us, means laughing, shopping, eating, talking and generally having a great time. This year we hired a small bus and headed south-west through the Scenic Rim and into the Southern Downs, staying at a country town called Warwick, overnight. These are a few photos of the things we saw and the places we stopped.

Full of Fun

Aside from my oldest child, our family is pretty lean on thrill-seekers. Most of us would choose a lovely slow cruise or a gentle swinging chair, preferably close to the ground, over a thrill ride. The most excitement we get is climbing the stairs to whatever slow ride is on offer!

The New Girls

Working with the "new girls" is so much fun! Today I decided to make them speckled hens by adding dots of white pen over the black and grey marker. Each chook is then fussy cut and adhered to the card with foam tape.

New Release: Spring Chickens

These plucky ladies are the queens of the barnyard and certainly know how to strut their stuff. Perfect for gracing the cards of good friends and fun-loving family members, they're sure to get a chuckle or two at the next birthday gathering.

Monochromatic

I use markers on white card stock to get a perfect match when I don't have any card stock in the colour I need. It's a good idea to cut it to size first so you don't waste time and ink on areas that you're just going to cut away.

A Note of Thanks

I created my "glass jar" by adding a layer of glossy accents over the top of the coloured layer. It doesn't take long to dry and gives a beautiful shiny finish... it's also one of my favourite glues.

No-Line Colouring

No-line colouring is a simple technique that involves stamping your image with a light coloured ink before colouring. It gives the impression that the work has been hand-drawn.
