Poe me challenge at Smudgy Antics

This weeks challenge at Smudgy Antics is Poe me, check out the rules and the prize here

I'm not a Poe fan, so I searched the internet and found the poem "the Raven" and decided to use that for my project. Again I made an art journal page



I printed the poem twice, once on white paper and once on designer paper, cut out the raven (Cricut) and put the 2 pages together so you still will be able to read the poem. Printed out the Smeared Ink "dead dancer" digi cut it out and coloured it using colour pencils. I inked the raven with distress ink and added the title. Hope you like it.

to use the Raven I cut out I made another page


This time I picked one line out of the poem and made the page, the sweet little guy in the bird cage is a little creeper digi also from Smeared Ink

Hope you will join us at Smudgy Antics blog for the Poe Me challenge, see you there

This weeks challenge at Smudgy Antics : Dear Heart

There are a few changes in rules for the Smudgy Antics challenges:

*Your project can be anything (card, scrapbook page, mixed media, altered or 3-D item, etc) as long as it is handmade and stamped somewhere with either a rubber or digital stamp. We have taken into consideration our digital artist fans and will be allowing all-digi projects. Feel free to think outside the box and have fun with your project! We are all about looking at things differently and look forward to the variety of projects and mediums we are sure to see.

*You must use AT LEAST 1 Smeared Ink image on your project. You are allowed to use anything else that you like.
*This rule has changed. To encourage more participants, any stamped image may be used, however only projects using at least one Smeared Ink image will be eligible to win a prize. Encourage your crafty friends to come play with us.



*You can only enter and qualify for a prize if you are, or become, a follower of the blog.

This weeks challenge is "Dear Heart"

And here is my entry,I made a page in my Art Journal, I used the bat wings of the Smeared Inks digi "a little bit batty". The heart is a Double Do die and it is embossed using Cuttle Bug embossing folder.


I made the background with a magic stamp, it's a foam block you heat with heatgun and then press into anything you want to make a stamp of. I used the heart embossing folder to make a stamp and used that as my background.

here is a pic of the foam block

The fun thing s that you can re-use it, just heat again and the image disappears, heat and press in something else.

cool huh!

I was just playing with it and tried it out in my Art Journal, it is just a quick and easy page but it was fun to make it. That is the main thing, having fun so some and join this weeks challenge

Smudgy Antic Challenge Alter Something

This weeks challenge at Smudgy Antic is Alter Something.

I've got 2 projects for you, the first one is this,

before:

It's a can that used to have peanuts in it, now it's on my desk holding my pencils. Though it had a nice image on it, it was time for change...

here is the after pic.:

I coverd the tin using designer paper and then added the Grumpie, he is a Smeared Ink Digi and I love him.

I coloured Grumpie with my pencils (what else...) The word "pencils" is made using a cuttle kids alphabet.

here some more pics



and now my second project:

here is the before pic

I don't wear these earings because they are so heavy, so I took the middle metal ring with the beads off to lose some weight. Then I added something, see the after pic below


I printed the smeared Ink digi Creepers toy on designer paper twice, and took of the head with a circle punch. Punched another circle out of the designer paper and glued it to the back of the Creepers circle. Than laminated the circles and attached to the earings.

My daughter loved them and she is going to wear them today :-)

See how easy it is to alter something, hope you will enter the callenge at Smudgy Antics blog
