Tic Tac Toe at Ikes World Challenges

Image
Welcome to February's challenge at  Ikes World  This months theme is Tic Tac Toe...ARGH there is ALWAYS things I never use or more often things I have NEVER heard of it.  I had this crazy idea for a journal page then tweeked it to fit the theme.   The Tic Tac Toe grid is: I've chosen to do Glitter, Flowers and Embossing.  I've used lots of glitter on the zombie animals and the flowers on the store clerk's jacket are embossed and cut out.  I've written the quote myself so the copyright is mine. It reads "Almost everything in life has sparkle and joy if you embrace it and allow it to be positive".  ⒸSall Baker

Off to Dinner at International Art and Soul

 Hi and welcome to off to dinner at  IAAS , the lovely Hazel has chosen this fortnight's theme although I suspect it was supposed to be slightly more romantic given that it's Valentines day but I never could stick to the obvious or easy route.  So I've used some Kingfisher and nature stamps from  Hobby Art  to make this journal page of a Kingfisher fishing along the canal.  I've used distress ink and brushos for the background and I've coloured the stamps with Derwent Procolour pencils and fussy cut them.  The quote is my own and copyright belongs to me. It reads "Nature knows how much it can take from itself without allowing egocentrism to drain it's resources."

Hearts at International Art and Soul

 Welcome to a heart themed challenge at  IAAS .  This theme was chosen by the delectable Chriss.   I love altering or decorating these wooden hearts and confess that I am building quite a collection.  This time I've used the penguins from  Hobby Art .  The quote is my own and copyright goes to me.  It reads "We may be poles apart, we may feel the cold of loneliness but the warmth of friendship is never far away if you open your heart and let it in".

Friendship at Ikes World Challenges

Image
Welcome to a new year at  Ikes World Challenges . There is a great theme of Friendship this month and you can use your imagination in any way you like and have whatever take you like on the theme...which is why I love Ike's World so much, I can just literally relax and see where my brain synapses take me. I decided to look at the superficial and hidden depths of friendship and use images that don't necessarily fit societal norms of friendship.   The images I've used are CSI Geek, Skellie gossip and do your thing.  All images are available at  Ikes Art  .  The quote I have written myself and is thus copyright to me.  It reads "IF you look closely you will see that friends won't care what you look like, what you wear, what your interests are or let you make all the effort".  ⒸSall Baker

Winter at International Art and Soul

Image
 Welcome to the Winter fortnight at  IAAS , the theme has been chosen by Crafty Girl and it's very open to interpretation which is great for me. I've chosen to do a double art journal page using polar bear stamps from  Hobby Art  .  The quote was written by me and the copyright is my own.  It reads " NO don't jump in the water!  Can't you keep these cubs under control? You could help you know; it's not my fault the entire world thought it a good idea to melt the polar ice caps and destroy their playground!"

 Welcome to the first challenge of the year at  IAAS  The challenge theme has been picked by DT mate Tricia and it's a gorgeous theme.  I've chosen to use some scene it stamps by  Hobby Art  I've turned it in to a simple easel thank you card for a good friend who sent me the most wonderful Christmas Gifts.

Anything goes with a theme of Christmas over at Ikes Art

Well I do like a Christmas theme, well as long as it doesn't involve yet another ***** Christmas Card I do. On that note it's probably obvious why I made an art journal page for the  Ikes Aart Challenge .  All images can be found in the  Ikes Art Store .
