Welcome Everyone

The wonderful world of Zoe is what I hope to share with you all here on my blog. Life isn't always easy, but then that's the case whoever you are. But no matter what each day brings I always try to start and end it with a smile - to look back and know I controlled my day, the day didn't control me!

Christmas in August

Well I'm back today to share my latest Crafty Boots Challenge project. The theme chosen by the fab and talented Sandra is Christmas in August.  So you have our permission to dig out the Christmas stash and play along.

I'm trying, this year, to make Christmas projects using images that aren't actually meant for Christmas. Characters that aren't related but when coloured and matched with Christmas stash they work. Here's my gift tag I've made - 

The character is Chilling Kaylee digi stamp from Some Odd Girl. The background is created by stamping the baubles from Stampin'Up Ornament Keepsakes using Gum ball Green ink. I added red buttons and sentiments from Craftwork cards. I like the idea of Kaylee sitting so she is off the tag. I coloured her using a mix of Copics, Spectrum Noirs and Graph It markers.

So there you go. Simple really. I look forward to seeing your creations.
Take care Zo xx

This is such a fun tag and, until I read your post, I assumed it was a Christmas image!!Great colour choice - just what I might wear myself, when I'm not wearing claret and blue! x said...

Zoe what a wonderful tag loving the baubles and image brilliant.

I wonder if I can ask how you managed to get the link on your gallery for visiting your docrafts gallery I have been searching for this widget without success.

As you can see I have a new blog and wondered if you would kindly re follow me again. Love Alison xxx

Love how you have created your background for the tag, I must try this. I would never have guessed that this wasn't a Christmas image, you have coloured it is imaginatively.
