Challenge #15 Spring Leprechauns at LeighSBDesigns!

I have some lovely clover which peeks out before spring is officially here and blooms with gorgeous little purple flowers.  This year I didn't get a picture of it blooming but when I went out to take a pic after it had rained....well, this happened!

There among the clover was Oddleigh Leprechaun and his pot of Oddleigh gold!   His sentiment got a little lost in the clover so he sprinkled some gold around it to help you see it!  One for the photo album I do declare!  I also think he needs to have his lovely image entered in the Spring Leprechauns #15 Challenge at LeighSBDesigns!  You let me know if you have ever found one of these lucky fellows under clover in your yard! ๐Ÿ˜Š

Check the sale out here at LeighSBDesigns!

Totally fabulous new Spring Wildflowers Collection at LeighSBDesigns, too!

March 19th The Outlawz Sunday Song & Rhyme Challenge!

Spring Song

Author Unknown

Frogs croak

Rains soak

Chicks peep

Crickets leap

Bees hum

Robins come

Birds sing

It's spring!

This is our poem for this challenge at The Outlawz Sunday Song & Rhyme Challenge!  I was immediately inspired by the "Bees hum" and had just the image set to use for small postcard sized project!
I used Busy Bees Collage and Sentiment Set by LeighSBDesigns printing out the bees and flowers image three times and trimming to stack one on the other after inking with Distress Oxides and Inks!  Next I printed out the single bee included with the set and the sentiment coloring the bee with Copics.  Each layer, bee and senti was popped on with foam squares and easy bee-sy this was all done!  Remember to tell us what inspired you from the poem when you enter the challenge!  Can't wait to see you at The Outlawz Sunday Song & Rhyme Challenge!

The Outlawz Festive Friday Challenge with Sheepski Designs!

Let's jump right into the theme:

St Patricks Day
Our sponsor this time is Sheepski Designs and a huge thank you to them for their wonderful support of our challenges at The Outlawz!
I used the fantastic image #249 Buzzing and what fun it was!  I colored the image up with colored pencils and Copics and fussy cut.  I added to some gorgeous watercolor paper with foam squares and added a sentiment by Crafter's Companion!  Then it was popped onto a lovely piece of cardboard packaging with lots of character and the edges rounded!  Now it is your turn to jump into spring or show us some Christmas projects and pop them into The Outlawz Festive Friday Challenge!

The Outlawz Monday Greetings March with Mirtillamente!

A huge thank you to Eve at Mirtillamente Craft Shop for her continued support of our challenge each year!  She is so generous often sending extra images for our design team to work with like she did this month!

I had a play with Phoebe Rain and Apple Pie!  I colored up Phoebe with Copics and created a background of delicious apple pie and cold milk in Photoshop.  I also created my sentiment in Photoshop.  To me this makes perfect sense as I am always thinking of food but especially when I am wet from rain or cold!  I inked the background with the apple pie images with Distress Oxide shabby shutters.  Come get crafty with us at The Outlawz Monday Greetings Challenge for March where the required greeting is Hello March and the optional twist is to add food ๐Ÿ˜

The Outlawz Paper A La Mode Challenge for March๐Ÿ€

Time to create anything but a card!  Scrapbook layouts, tags, calendars, boxes oh my goodness the things you can make for us!  Our theme is:   Music Makes the World Go Round!

I am still doing my digital photo album!  This page is celebrating Noah’s love of all things musical and his awesome talent playing the guitar!  The background is a pic of a piece of packing cardboard that I tea stained by laying down used tea bags and swirling them around.  I then imported them into Procreate and made all kinds of lovely colors!  The image of a guy playing the guitar I made in an AI program in Creative Fabrica!  I just listed some words and out came this wonderfully fabulous image that has Noah’s exact beard and glasses!  I made the music note in Creative Fabrica’s Spark section and the Word Cloud Creator (I think that is what it is called) ๐ŸŽถ๐Ÿฅ๐ŸŽธ.  We have traveled a good bit of the Blues Trail which Mississippi has miles of and Memphis is an hour from Clarksdale where we stay often.  The music notes are from LeighSBDesigns’ Balleigh Part Monster Set!  Come on down and play with us at the Outlawz PAM Challenge for March!

Our sponsor this month is Pattie's Creations and we want to give them a huge thank you!  Please visit their shop and have a look see at all the fabulous images!  We had the chance to play with Irish Owl Hootie for this challenge!  
I colored him up with Copics and then used washable gold glitter paint on top of the shamrocks!  I added some touches of gold gel pen on the hat and Hootie!  I made the senti in Photoshop.  This was going to be a tag from the start and once again my paper punch went off larking about!  So it is a tag/note now.....we crafters always roll with the punches!  We do hope to see you at Paper Dragonfly Creative Challenges #15 All That Glitters is Green and Gold!
