All Shapes and Sizes in La-La Land


This week in La-La Land we are having fun with all shapes and sizes. Although my project looks square'ish it IS a box card and it's 1"/2.5cm deep which gives a wonderful 3D feel to my scene. I've also popped elements up using 3D foam - both on the front and in the background which adds more depth to the scene, as do the different scaled elements. I haven't made one of these cards for a looooong time - it's awesome when a challenge forces you outside of your comfort zone and you see what you can do!

Aurora Wings Challenge #36



It's time for a new challenge over at Aurora Wings and this time we're creating something "for the boys" ....


How funny that I chose the same image that Mitzi used for the banner - I only realised this when I was writing up my post. This little guy is Forgotten Summer - Boy Fae Sitting on Leaves. I enlarged him and popped him into a frame with a digital paper background before colouring him in. I also printed out and popped up the 2 top wings and some of the leaves to give some added dimension to the finished project. Of course ALL fairy wings must have sparkle - so I've added a fine dusting of glitter to them.

Don't forget to check out the rest of the AMAZING DT inspiration on our BLOGWe also have a very active Facebook Fan Group with additional contests, challenges and inspiration.  We hope to see you there.

Anything Goes with Glitter in La-La Land


This week in La-La Land we are playing with glitter. As usual when I play with glitter I am now covered in sparkles, but there could be worse things happen in life LOL. Apologies for the dull photo - sadly Melbourne has started Spring off with gloomy days and lots of rain - and there's only so much a photo editing software can do!

There is a lot of glitter on here - from her wings, headband and booties to the flowers and rhinestones. It's always sad that a photo doesn't give the same feel to glitter than real life and movement can!

Colour Inspiration in La-La Land



This week in La-La Land we are using the inspiration picture to my left to help celebrate the start of Fall in the Northern Hemisphere. Personally I am enjoying the start of Spring here in Australia, but I still loved playing with these colours while surrounded by the lime greens of new leaves, plus lots of yellows, pinks and oranges in the flowers appearing in my garden. Whether you are celebrating Fall or Spring I hope it's full of colour for you.

Ahoy There in La-La Land


This week in La-La Land we're playing with all things nautical. My design is based on the idea of sailing, sunshine and relaxation. I created a little boat, the SS La-La Land, for Molli so she could "enjoy" herself out on the waves. I wish I could join her ;)

Using Kraft in La-La Land


This week in La-La Land we are using Kraft card in our projects. Kraft adds such a rustic feel to any project and I love mixing it with crisp white and texture. I also think the Paper Doll range works so well with Kraft and this cutie means I can tick another Christmas card off of my to do list :)

Stitching in La-La Land


This week I've made a Parcel Card based on my teamie Jenny's tutorial HERE. I have been wanting to make one for some time but I was "forced" into action when one of our lovely La-La Land followers messaged me asking if I knew how to convert Jenny's tutorial from cm to inches. Of course I HAD to make sure it all worked out for her so I ended up with the card base and little box sitting on my desk waiting for some lovin' ....

It's a bit hard to see the stitching here but I've used the Double Stitched Hills and then layered on a Stitched Ribbon along the bottom to neaten the cut edge. I do love stitched dies and that textural element they give. I'm also enjoying creating texture with my copics - little crosses and dashes have been done across her coat and hat to give them a thick woolly feel.

Here are the measurements in inches if anyone else would like them.....but please note - I did take off one inch on the left side of my card here - the measurements below follow Jenny's original directions.

This week in La-La Land the team get to create anything they like :) I enjoy making box cards, love Christmas, and we've just had our Christmas release at La-La Land, so I put all of these elements together.

Blue and White in La-La Land


Oopsie - forgot to hit the publish button on this one - LOL

This week in La-La Land we are using Blue and White to create with. I love the crispness of white with soft blues. To create the texture on her nightgown and slippers I drew small squiggles all over - starting with the lightest blue and adding the darker blues to add shadows. I finished off with some white squiggles. It was a fun technique to play with.
