Everybody was kung fu fighting

Hello its that time again and for those of you that visit my blog you will know that my nephew does Karate. A couple of weeks ago he was tested for his orange belt. We all went to watch, which probably made him very nervous! I wanted to make a LO to record the occasion as I was so proud of him. My little Kung Fu Fighter!

For this LO I used a really lovely kit by fancy pants, its completely boy themed and its great! It has an overlay which I used.

I stamped onto the overlay using Stazon jet black ink. I used the Lovely Fat and Funky Alpha stamps to stamp my title.

Once stamped I coloured in my title using a marker pen.

I wanted to carry the funky theme through the LO and so I hand cut some arrows to match the arrows on the overlay. I also used buttons to match the bold colours on the patterned paper

Hope you like

Here I've created a little bit of art using the fabulous JOFY stamps from PaperArtsy.
There's nothing not to like about these stamps, then again that goes for all of Jo's designs, simple yet effective and versatile.... See, they're not just for Christmas ... Makes you want to look at all your stamps and 'see' other ways of using them.

Happy December everyone Marion xxx


I'm very fortunate that I have some fabulous friends in this industry. And although we're all incredibly busy we get to meet up every so often.
From the possie of Leandra Franich, Julie Hickey, Paula Pacual, Emma Godfrey, Jo Firth Young and Lin Brown, only three of us were able to meet last week, namely Emma and Paula, although we missed the other guys, it didn't stop us eating, chatting and playing for the day.
It started with Paula sharing some of her lovely new Tonic products.... You absolutely need the pearlescent pastes .... They're gorgeous ....
Then off to the pub for a rather satisfying lunch, then back to mine where we put Emma on the spot...'show us some art journaling......... Pleeeeease'
And of course, Emma being Emma duly obliged, so out came my PaperArtsy paints and stamps along with my stencils and inks.... After being taught step by step, I can honestly say I'm hooked.... So much so that today after the gym myself and the lovely Polly came b…
