Beauty & The Beast

Hi there! I thought I would finally get around to blogging my Beauty & The Beast drawings. I designed & coloured these for a competition with Waterstones called Picture This unfortunately I didn't get past the first round :-(
I am however very pleased with my drawings & my colouring. It took me hours & hours to get to this stage. All the characters started off looking very different to this!
I am having some time out from crafting at the moment so I apologise for being a little antisocial!! Happy Crafting xxx

Odds & Soxlets Guest DT projects

Odds & Soxlets Create & Craft A4 place/play mat & coaster
For my guest DT projects for Erica Martyn's Odds & Soxlets I decided to make an A4 place/play mat as they remind me of when I was young. My youger brother & sister & I all had a place/play mat which we used for our tea time & to play on ...in particular with play dough I remember!! I then decided to make a coaster to go with it using Toots.....I love Toots!!!
For full details on how to make these projects visit the Odds & Soxlets 
Happy Crafting!

Ellephantastic {August} Challenge ~ "Add some layers"

Oh my where did July go?? .....oh well time for another challenge over at Ellephantastic Challenges
This month Tina is hosting & has chosen the them {Add some layers}
I have used one of my Free digi images Baby Roger. I coloured him with promarkers & layered up using my nesties. I'm not all that happy with the card as its not my usual standard because Mr Mojo has gone on his jollies!! It does however look better in real life than in this pic!
I hope you all had fun celebrating with us through July & come back to join in this fab challenge. Make sure you stay tune for a fantastic tutorial coming up mid month from Tina you will love it!!
Have fun, Helen xxx

Elle sponsoring Just Tracy's Crafts

Today I am sponsoring Just Tracy's Crafts & they very kindly asked me to GD. I sent JTC 2 of my images to play with. Barney & Roger with flowers which you can buy from my shop http://www.ellephantastic.co.uk/
They're theme is Birthdays. I decided to use Barney. I coloured him with Promarkers & made a little boy's card as I rarely do boy cards & thought Barney was perfect for it. I have also used Dovecraft back to basics II papers which you can buy from my shop with free p&p in UK!!
Please pop over & have a peak at the wonder JTC DT's crafts & join in their challenge for a chance to win 4 digis of your choice from Ellephantastic.
