Saturday Spotlight Wk 7

Welcome to The Saturday Spotlight!

This week I've chosen 'Poppy'  by Anita (Bloggs).

I thought it was apt for this weekend with it's Poppy theme. I just love the effect she has achieved with this. And she's made the page using her own designed digi kit! A very talented lady :)
You can view more of Anita's gorgeous work at Daisytrail.

" I work as a medical receptionist. I created the page to show the different effects that can be achieved from one kit.
I was so pleased to see that the kit I made is used frequently and at this time of year on Remembrance day, it comes into it's own.
The kit is called 'Poppies', my favourite flower. I have only ever made freebie kits.
I have always loved designing things ever since I was a little girl...I remember  making a ballet  theatre when I was 5 and I took the  magnets out of my brother's 'Wembley kit' and stuck them on the bottom of the ballerinas and used the magnetic sticks to move them around the stage, much to his 'HORROR'!
I have been a member of Daisytrail for over 4 years now and knew nothing about digital scrapbooking when I joined. I'm still learning and enjoying every minute, and showing my Granddaughters how to enjoy it too.

Thought you might like to know how the effect was achieved - I made a copy of the page and changed the tone of the top page, then used 'colour burn' blend mode on top xx"

Thank you very much for sharing Anita :) x

Heartbeat At My Feet

Feeling soppy I did this page of my Cavalier King Charles, Poppy. I love her expression here. She was actually standing on a log pile looking for squirrels lol!
I cut her out then blended her onto the BG using radial. Then blended again using hard light. I've used a pale colour for the whole thing as I wanted it to look soft and dreamy.  I then added the elements and stamp effects.
 Used a beautiful kit from One Little bird called Heartbeat at my feet :)

WOYWW 231's Wednesday again.Time to travel around cyber space and drop in on fellow crafters around the world :) Confused? Pop over to Julia's blog for an explanation.

This week I've actually done some REAL paper and glue crafting! I made these cards using last year's Christmas cards. The little embellishments were made on my trusty Cricut and the sentiments on the computer.

I couldn't go a whole week without doing any digital stuff, so made this! The pony is one my mum befriended on holiday in scotland last week. He is so gorgeous i just had to do a page for him lol.
Used kits by Aquarius Designs, amy Wolff and Valerie Wibbens.

I 'm not sure how many desks I will get around this time as I have a busy day ahead. But I will visit as many as I can. Thank you to everyone that visits me. Your comments mean a lot. 
Happy WOYWW! xxx

Still not entirely sure what I will do with the pics at the end of the month lol. Any ideas or suggestions for how to present them, very welcome :) x

Cheeky Chappy!

My mum met this gorgeous shetland pony on holiday in Scotland. I had to 'scrap' him as he is adorable and so obviously full of character.
I wanted the page to be outdoorsy and full of texture, which is why I've gone for stitching and wire etc. I've used the splats to represent the mud! I kept to Autumnal colours to compliment the pony's colour and finished off by cutting out his nose so that it would look like he was coming out of the photo!
I've used elements from kits by Aquarius, Amy Wolff and Valerie Wibbens :)
