POE-fect challenge

This is my entry for a fun challenge for September over at the fabulous House of Bears blog  based on quotes



So this is a digital page based on a quote by Edgar Allen Poe........ 'I wish I could write as mysterious as a cat'

I used tubes to make this but the background paper I made a few weeks ago. Although darkened this down to blend in with the rest of the elements I used, it was actually made up of photos of wood planks, screws and a metallic blobby pattern on an old t-shirt  - only the blobby bits down front are showing though....

WOYWW #223

Hi everyone and welcome…

It's Wednesday - yippeee!... which means we go blog hopping around the world to see what you have on your desk, all thanks to the lovely Julia at THE STAMPING GROUND.

To join in the WOYWW fun aka 'Whats on your work-desk Wednesday' check out the info over at Julia’s place.

I've not WOYWWed for a few weeks - spent a lot of time trying to get my head around my new laptop with Windows 8 and re-installing programmes etc - say no more about that !

This is my desk this morning
 
Two projects on the go - some painted cogs drying - punched out on red fun foam (instead of having to paint an undercoat red first) this is just the first bit - lots more of paint and ink to add still to get the metallic effect I want.
Aiming to recreate my digital avatar I made of the steampunk owl.
 
Secondly I made a sheet of music yesterday which still needs to be aged/distressed. But first I took a photo of it and made it into a quick digi-paper design just to show one of the things I am going to use it for.
 




Also this is the first opportunity to show my lovely ATCs and things from SaraJ over in Alaska - from the ATC 4th anniversary swap - I love them Sara thank you x



Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving your comments
have a lovely day x

Scrapping with a Gentle Touch

 
One of the things I love  most about digital art, whether it be for making cards or scrapping, is that it is so easy to change the colours and get more from a kit.
 
I had a great couple of days making some pages using the latest digi-kit from Algera Designs  called 'Gentle Touch'
 

 
 
 

 
 
 
Lots of playing with the papers and blending them together and adding different effects, and sometime changing colours as well.
 




 
 
Just add some photos/images and some words and voila!
