Free on Friday

Welcome to Free on Friday even for those in the UK you might not see this till Saturday!  More than a little late posting, but it is still Friday for another hour and a half!  I have spent hours and hours going through files on my laptop aiming for an organized and ready to be used picture collection.

For you today I have some book covers!  These are from a collection of books on Gutenberg all about children in different countries.

I hope you like these, till next time, take care x

Southampton Skyline plus Free on Friday

When we stayed with my husbands sister in Southampton I took several photographs of the view from their 9th floor flat.   At the time I had an idea of what I wanted to do.  This is my digital art using the photograph below as my starting point.  I am still working on it- having a spot of bother with the lights !

Just scraping in with Free on Friday, it has been one of those days!

Until next time, take care x

Scripture Cards

I did these Scripture cards a week ago for the Glory Art challenge at Triple The Scraps  The pansies I had had in the drawer for far too long, so I decided to use them and having used them I decided I really didn't like them!  So I tried a few different things and ended up stippling gesso with a touch of blue paint.


 The latest Glory Art challenge at Triple The Scraps is Wisdom.  I really love doing these challenges.  I start by looking for Biblical quotes that I like using the main word.  This part is a Bible study for me and I pick quotes that "speak" to me.  I felt I learnt quite a bit about Biblical Wisdom.
"The dictionary defines wisdom as “the ability to discern or judge what is true, right, or lasting.” This is a theme that is recurring throughout the Bible. We know that Knowledge, on the other hand, is defined as having information through experience, reasoning or acquaintance. God wants us to have knowledge of Him and what he expects of us. But equally important is having wisdom. Knowing facts about God and the Bible is not all there is to having wisdom. Wisdom is a gift from God.James 1:5 states “But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all men generously and without reproach, and it will be given to him.” Wisdom is what God will bless us with in order for us to glorify Him with the knowledge we have of Him."   (Read more at Got Questions)

These cards I did yesterday.  I decided to step out of my comfort zone in that I chose bright colours to start with.  I used several Kaisercraft texture stamps, a couple of lids for the circles and some bakers twine.  I made these postcard size as I felt the text was too much for ATC size.

I am entering these in the Quirky Challenge which is Spring Colours.

Till next time, take care x

More Love Scrapbooking and Three Free on Friday

Continuing from the last post with challenges at Go Digital Scrapbooking these are the ones that feature my husband, my own true Valentine!  I do find it a little limiting entering challenges on the various scrapbook sites as they ask that you use their products (understandably), when I like to use my own stuff, but I like being part of a friendly site.  There are mini kits for taking part in the challenges, plenty of inspiration and even games!

This one I am entering into the challenge at Inspiration Journal 

Now for Free on Friday:

Digital mode for Go Digital Scrapbooking

At Go Digital Scrapbooking there are a variety of challenges and there is also a challenge to complete 7 challenges in the month!  I flipped into digital mode this month and completed 9 challenges! The focus of most of the challenges was "Love" as you will see today and tomorrow.  The first picture shows a "cut out" technique that is actually a top layer.  The second one was for a colour challenge using specific colours.

Till tomorrow, take care x
