Unity Friends with Flair . . . Altered mobile phone case.

Hello and happy Friday to you all!
Just stopping by with a quick altered project to share with
Friends with Flair linky party!
Sooo it was time to update my mobile contract and as my old phone was forever getting covered in paint 
{ terrible I know } 
the deal was that I had to have a mobile cover this time!
  Never liked them or seen one that I like.
Anyhooooo Alex came home the other day with a white one . . . I disliked it on sight, lol!
So when he left for work today, I headed out to my shed to collect a few supplies along with
my latest stamp 
She was a daughter by ChristyTomlinson.
I now have my very own personalised mobile cover, lol!
Hope you like it.
Thank you so much for looking and wishing you all a happy creative weekend! 
Till next time
Big hugs

It`s time to share my design team project for

 " Halloween Colours  "

so you don`t have to make a Halloween project as long as you use a Halloweeny colour palette so we want to see oranges, purples, greens and black!
You don`t have to use Pan Pastels to enter but we love it when you do.
One lucky winner will win a fab prize from our sponsers!

Out to the shed to grab a chunk of wood and pencil to sketch . . .
. . . grabbing a few Spooktacular coloured Pan Pastels, Pearl Mediums, cheap hairspray 
{ fixes each colour of Pan Pastel } 
fine black liner pen, stamps and  a touch of Clearsnap Smooch Ink for the tendrils.

I loved mixing and layering all the PP`S up to create my spooky pumpkin! 

I hope you all get spooky and come join in the fun over on the challenge blog , plus take the time to check out what the rest of the team has created.

I was the GIU Girl for the 2nd time back in August and what a painty, inky fun filled week I had! 
 This year Unity has added another fun and fabulous feature to GIU!  Every 2 months the previous GIU girls will be asked to participate in a Unity BLOG HOP which will be featured on the Unity Blog and Facebook page! 
 How FUN is that!
 Did I mention we got our hands on next weeks
Stamp of the Week?
Yes we sure did, thank you Unity!
It`s called
Winter Forest
Joslyn Neilson

I have a lot of Christmas ideas in mind for this little beauty using all sorts of mediums from card to clay . . .
but for today's project I gathered up a little chunk of wood to play with . . .
. . . along with a few inks and sprays to colour, giving it an aged appearance
Now all it needs is a black and white picture added to the top, to complete it once the festivites arrive!

Now it`s time to hop along to

Pan Pastel UK Challenge - Autumn

 Good morning everyone, excited to be back and sharing my project for the new challenge over at
and the theme is
 As always one lucky winner will win some fab stash from our sponsors

be sure to hop on by the blog to catch all the details.
Autumn is a time to celebrate the changing of the season and the riot of colours that surround us as the leaves begin to fall, for me it is also a time to celebrate the season that has gone as I reap the bounty of the veg I have grown at my allotment.
So much to be thankful for! 
My project started life as a hunk of wood,
{ my pile is getting smaller }
covered in old book pages using Matt Gel to fix it . .
a quick splodge with Gesso all over . .
Stamped image with a Staz On Ink pad . .
time to mix up a few Pan Pastels using only a smidgen of water to colour . .
a few doodle doos around the outside
and finishing with a few typed words on the PC and printing.

Now it`s over to you, we hope you will join in the fun and link up your Autumn project over on the challenge blog
you can see what the rest of the DT have created for your inspiration, you won`t be disappointed!
Remember you don`t have to use Pan Pastels to join in with our challenges!
 Till next time
Big hugs
