Hi all!

Hope you have had a great weekend! It's Sunday night here in Oz and we have had a great weekend! I had my 2 nieces stay over on Friday night who wanted to do a spot of colouring with me, I didn't need much convincing to do anyway myself but after having a meltdown filled with self doubt because my skin blends weren't working for me, I put mine away and just watched them colour... I did come back to my colouring early yesterday morning and it flowed just nicely!

While checking out my favourite blogs this afternoon, I discovered that my entry into "Anything Goes Challenge #22" on artbymiran was awarded a top 3 pick winners! I am so over the moon and feel so honored to be involved with a great talented group of crafters, there were so many gorgeous entries! Make sure you follow the link by clicking on artbymiran and take a look at all the entries that have been uploaded to the challenge blog!

Have a great week!  :D

Art by Miran - DT Call *ENTRY*

Oh boy.... was I an excited little kid at Christmas (again) when I saw that one of my most favourite artists was putting a call out for new members of her Design Team! Click on this image below to find out the details on her blog.

Design Team Call

I was away on holidays with my family when I heard, and all I wanted to do was get cracking on my entry piece! But alas I didn't have everything I needed with me on holidays, namely a computer and a printer and since we are able to submit old creations as well, this is what I had to do in order to meet the cut off date. 

So once again I would like to show to you my most recent "artbymiran" creation that features "Tulipa". I was very lucky to have been selected in a top 3 pick during a challenge on art by miran facebook group and Tulipa was my prize image! Tulipa was coloured using copics and techniques that I am learning in my online colouring classes. For this particular creation I wanted a CAS approach as I didn't want Tulipa getting lost.

Why would I like to be a designer for Art by Miran... I would love to be on the design team as I just love her images and love working with them! Its so beautiful and I love the way the stamps are so versatile as they can used in CAS, cards, detailed cards, can be coloured or monochrome. I would love love love the chance to able to work with Mi Ran and the rest of the design team who I really admire and yes they inspire me! 

Yes, I might be new to blog-land, but I am keen and passionate about making cards which I have done for a few years now. This year I have been lucky to get a DT spot on Sweet 7 Designs Challenge Blog.  I love a challenge and will do my utmost best on any topic you give me! So I welcome the opportunity to grow and show off Art by MiRan's gorgeous designs and hope that I am accepted onto the Design Team!

Thank you for viewing my post.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!!

Well in all honesty by the time I actually post this, new years day in Australia will be done and dusted for another year! It has been crazy busy here at my place packing for our trip... now we are all packed up and in about 5hrs time we will be hitting the road!

So I managed to sneak in one more thank you card and I  have to say I am really happy with the way it turned out, definitely one of the better images I have coloured since starting! This digi image is called Tulipa and can be found here in Mi Ran Jung's Etsy store. This was also the image I won when I was chosen top 3 pick in ArtbyMiRan's November " Anything Goes Challenge ".  I am also now submitting this into ArtbyMiRan's new challenge, Challenge #22 Anything Goes

Anyway I hope you like the end result, please let me know what you think by leaving me a comment below, all constructive criticism is welcomed! And while you are letting me know your thoughts, what do you think of the new background? I found this background HERE at Imagine That Digi Stamp and Kris was very generous today and kindly helped me out with installing it but I definitely recommend you check out her blog and show her some love!

That's enough from me for now, I really do need to try and get some sleep! Don't you hate it but when you know you have to be up at an unusual time and then you spend the whole night waking up because you think you have slept through the alarms? Happens everytime so just as well I won't be driving!

Until next time...
