Christmas Journal

We at Polkadoodles continue on the Christmas Mood
My countdown says we are 138 days 00 hrs 40 min and 15 sec from Christmas
what means we are pretty close LOL, so we all should start creating Christmas crafts
 This time and for several posts you will see me making new pages on my 2017 December Journal
getting them ready to document the season 

 In this case I used Oddella with wings 
I Loved Her 
I colored her with Polychormos Faber Castell printed on a smooth paper 
also added some snow embellishments as I decided to color her only with cold colors.

Thank you very much for the visit see you next time

Christmas Trifold Card

This time I dared to make a card! LOL yup you know I usually dont make cards but I found this one and I liked it and it seemed a little bit out of the ordinary so I decided to give t a try! 
Its called the Tri fold card and what I loved about t is that on every closing of the card you can add a message or an image.

For the front of the card I used a Christmas embellishment and the rest of the closings or folds I used a coordinated image from the new sets of Christmas clear stamps from the gorgeous Polkadoodles 

 These stamps you can find them HERE

Christmas in July

Wooo hoooo We are celebrating Christmas at Polkadoodles and DT girls created lots of inspirational projects for you to have ideas on how to use the divine Polkadoodles images.

One of my struggles every year comes when My daughter starts making up ideas about everything she wants me to create for the lasts days in school. 

Teachers presents, cards for best friends and then for the not that good friends LOL,
 little messages to add to a candy for all classmates and more, 
she always wants everything and she gets many ideas
 and usually she does the night before she has to give them away LOL so no more of that

 This year I started ahead of time and she said well 
I want to give a little happy holidays message with a candy to all of the class mates,
 so I thought I could do something using this Winnie Winterland - Design Sheet 13  


I cut some dollies with my cutter machine, 
added the little images from the design sheet and a message to the back of it,
 It fits perfectly what I needed and using these cuties made it easier and beautiful 
Hope you find them useful

Mini LO

Using Apple A Day I made a simple LO to preserve a meaningful image Of my daughter and her friend walking on a the street!
 This day the little ones were sharing an afternoon together because friend Connie was traveling and they were not seeing each other in a few days! so it was like the farewell party for them

Using some embellishments and the pre colored image from
 the newest Images released by Polkadoodles
 I was able to create a simple but beautiful mini LO to add to my Midori as an insert.

Technique A Week at Oddball Art

Every week we have a new technique TAW for you to try at Oddball Art Stamps   
and This week is my turn as part of the DT we work on different projects to inspire you!

because Im creating a cover for my art journal 
and this image is just perfect for it 

I normally make my own art journals so I can add different types of paper to use With different mediums but most of the times that means I dont have a cute cover, so this time I got the brilliant idea of creating one. 

Started wit coloring the image and pasting it to the piece of card stock

Then I took some white tissue paper and wrinkled it, 
after that I used some gesso to paste it to the borders of the card stock 
to create some texture
Let it dry a little while 
or you can use a heater gun too like I HAD to do, 
since the weather was not cooperating with my plans

Once you make sure its completely dry you can start coloring...
To color it I used Panpastel Which is One of my favorite mediums
 as it covers a lot and has a great variety of vibrant colors
I used 3 colors, lime green, turquoise and orange 
Pan pastels allow you to mix them and they blend so beautifully you don't see the change in colors and like in this case I'm doing on a texture it gives the idea of having shadows and lights when getting into the wrinkles of the paper. 
I personally love this technique I used it a lot in cards and journals. 
After I finished with my coloring I had to make my journal, 
So I selected all the papers I wanted to add inside and punched them on my Cinch,
 then bound them together and voila I have a new journal!

Here you have some pics on the colouring detail image

                Hope you like it and this inspires you to make your own journals from now on,
                       thank you for visiting and see you next week with our next TAW  ;)

Midori Lay Out

I recently found another way to Lay Out my photos and its the so in Midori or traveler's notebook. 
With them you can decorate pictures very quickly and easy to share a memory.
 I Love this since I'm not very detailed like to scrapbook a whole LO 
this is much funnier and easier for me at least! 

Today I used one of the recently released images from POlkadoodles
you can find them HERE
and this is the one I used this time. 
Hope you like this idea and see you soon
