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!

Some Odd Girl - sorting my images

Eeek I'm a little excited and have butterflies in my tum. The football season starts today, in less than 15 mins in fact for my boys - Bristol Rovers!  They are away so I'm listening to the commentary, but I still get that first day nerves and excitement.

Right anyway back to why I'm here, I want to share 2 projects I have been working on for a little while. the type of projects that you want to do but they take time. The first is a reference book/index of all my Some Odd Girl stamps and digi images. I have lots and find it can be tiresome to look through on the laptop so I've created this book that can be added to. I will in time colour all the images but for now I'm pleased with how it's turned out - 

As you can see I've embossed an A4 piece of card using a folder through my Ebosser. I sanded it and layered it on to some white card then onto the yellow base.  I added die cuts and chose some of my favourite characters. I added Thickers to spell out the SOG name. You'll see I've coloured the football one in Bristol Rovers colours!!

Then I've created this digital scene using digi images to create the background. All done in Serif Craft Artist Pro 2 I then added the digi SOG stamps, resizing them to create perspective. I then printed it off and coloured each fairy/image using a mix of Copics/Spectrum Noirs/Graph It markers. I wanted to do this to go on my wall.

Hope you all like what I've done.
Take care Zo xx
