Aurora Wings Blog Challenge - Crop It!
Mitzi has honoured, and surprised me by asking me to be a Guest Designer for her September Challenge, Crop It! I can't even begin to tell you how excited, scared, thrilled and amazed I am. Where to begin? Mitzi has so many amazing designs to chose from, and at this point in time, a lot of my art has been Steampunk themed. I have several of her Steampunk images, so I knew I'd be picking one of those. I printed Steampunk Angel onto X-Press It Copic Blending Card and coloured her using my Copic markers.  Dress - Red: R22, 37, 59, T10 Dress - Beige: E40, 42, 44 Skin: E50, 51, 11,..

Aurora Wings Challenge #56 Anything Goes
I am so not a blogger. I like to create for challenges, but I usually forget to blog about my design. Thankfully, the Aurora Wings Challenge Blog forces one to blog before entering one's creation. So here goes: I used one of my favourite images, Memento Mori for this challenge. I wanted a Halloween feel to this card, so I used papers from Echo Park Paper Co., “Under Your Spell”. For coordinating colours, I grabbed some orange and black cardstock from my stash. This beautiful image was coloured with Copic markers, and I used Mercury Glass Stickles for the details in the..

Aurora Wings Challenge #55 -- The Elements (Second Entry)
This is my second entry to the challenge on the Aurora Wings website, Challenge #55 The Elements. When I first saw Viridis Incendia, I thought she was a mermaid who captured a butterfly and brought it underwater to eat. In Mitzi's Etsy shop, she is described as "a spirit of the carnivorous plant", hehe oops! Oh well, I'm calling this the Air Element, for the butterflies... yeah, that's it. ;) I will also use her in the Facebook challenge as well, which is why I used the FB challenge sketch for this design. Again, she was coloured long ago, and put in my pile. I used Copic mar..

Aurora Wings Challenge #55 -- The Elements
When I first saw Mitzi's Siren digi I knew I had to have her. I coloured her immediately, then stuck her in my "ok, so now what do I do with this?" pile (I have a BIG pile too). The challenge on the Aurora Wings website, Challenge #55 The Elements, was a perfect opportunity to use her, plus it doesn't hurt that I can also use it in their Facebook challenge as well. The FB challenge has a sketch to follow, which is awesome, as my brain doesn't have to come up with a design. ;) Since I coloured her so long ago, I've forgotten the colours I used. All I remember is that I used my Copic markers,..

Storefront news
  It's taken quite a bit of time, three months from starting the business, to getting our sign up and doors open.

We're still getting in scrapbook & paper supplies, and received a shipment before the weekend. We'll get photos up of the new items shortly. Until then, here are photos of the store.     Guard geese always on duty, lol. ..

Thanks for Your Patience
We just want to say a great big THANK YOU to all our customers waiting patiently for the online store to actually work. Your orders are still in our database, and we will be getting emails out as soon as this silly thing is fixed. Currently, we believe it has something to do with the Canada Post shipping plugin, which is causing some hiccup in the checkout process. Please continue to bear with us during our opening phase. Thank you. ..

Guard Geese

Our little hobby farm is set on just under 2 acres, backing on to green space. Wildlife and farm animals however is not something we want intermingling. So what's a girl supposed to do?
