hello friends: this week i did another digital tag  for the "candle prompt." (next week i have a handmade tag planned i promise!)

background by robyn gough designs and all else by crzytal rain "this is christmas elements" set from mischief circus.

as eleanor roosevelt said, "it is better to light a candle than to curse the darkness."

love to all.

Apart from drawing some I found I had nothing in images or stamps for candles. So if you look carefully there are two red candles in the window made from some shiny red paper and some gold fabric flames.


Hello Everyone. Hope you have had a great week. Mine seems to have flown by and I can't imagine what I have done to make it that way. Thank you for the comments on my tag last week and great to see yours as always.

Gone a bit over the top this week with a glittering animated tag. Well it is almost Christmas :)

Have a great week

Love Chrissie xx


Hello - thank you for all the kind comments on my tag last week. I love this week's theme and am looking forward to seeing everyone's tags.

I covered a manila tag with some older Christmas paper I had and then fussy cut the angel which is a Gecko Galz image. I pop dotted the image, putting a small doily behind her head. I added German scrap trim at the bottom of the tag and a German scrap star at the top.

I used a Matte editing effect around the tag to soften it.

Have a wonderful week!


Hi Everybody!

I think we all like candle light on dark, wintry nights,
I know I do!
I love to see candles and lights in people's houses, too,
it always looks so welcoming.

Here's wishing you all a lovely week!

Take care, and thanks a lot
for coming by!

background by robyn gough all other digital images by cryztal rain "so this is christmas".

love to all.

What's in your Christmas Stocking

This was not easy, as I didn't know how to attempt it. In the end I cut out and painted a stocking shape. and cut out some things to put in my stocking. I then covered the stocking with some acetate.

Christmas Stockings

Hi to everyone! Loved all your patchwork tags from last week.
What would I like in my Christmas stocking? A puppy, or two!! (Santa, if you can't bring a puppy, I will take jewelry instead!)
I used a 7 Gypsies tag and added a Gecko Galz image and a small cork heart to complete my tag.
Have a wonderful week!

Christmas Stocking

Hi All. Hope you have had a good week. Beautiful tags you made last week though it such a shame that so few of us are joining in these days. Thank you for commenting on my tag.

Full of Peace, Love and Happiness

I enjoyed making this and it will hang on my tree this year.

Love Chrissie xx

Christmas Stocking ....

As usual, Christmas has crept up on me. I am currently in tropical North Queensland visiting my sister, so the festive season hadn't been uppermost in my mind. My tag this week was as much as I could manage in transit - in a hotel room last night with a felt tipped pen, my travel pack of watercolours and an aquash brush. At least, she has the wrapping paper out and has managed a couple of presents - I wish to be so organised at this time of the year. Have a great week! 

What's in your stocking?

Hi Everybody!

Hope your week is going well.

Once again I just have a digital piece for you,
I do not have the strength just now for 'real' crafting.
I think the snowman is wishing for lots of warm clothes in his stocking!

Have a great week!
Take care, and thanks a lot for coming by!

Farms, Fields and Patchwork Landscapes

            Hi Everyone!  
Another week, another tag!
I have used a Gelli printed landscape this week as a tag. I have been drawing textures into the Gelli plate, then taking a print. The idea came from Linda Germain in an online course. I am still working on variations of this, with different colour combinations and styles. The landscape is my version of Tuscany, Italy, which we visited this summer.

Farms, fields, patchwork lanscapes

I painted mine this time as I didn't have time to make a sewn one which is what I intended doing. I'm looking forward to see what everyone else does for this one.

Farms, Fields and Patchwork Landscapes

I really didn't know what to do for this weeks "challenge" here at Tag Tuesday.
Nonetheless, I went to work to create this

Farms, Fields and Patchwork Landscapes }

Patchwork in Pink


Pssst... Just wanted to let you know that I'm getting published in Somerset Studio Gallery, Winter 2017 { hits the newsstand December 1st } !!! I'm so over-the-moon-excited!!

Farms, Fields and Patchwork Lanscapes

Hello Fellow Taggers. Hope your week has gone well. Great to see the wonderful reindeer on your tags last week.

I love this theme and often doodle coloured fields. I doodled these digitally then printed them out and used white pen to highlight the shapes. Next I drew the little farm building and fences.

Can't wait to see everyone else's take on the theme

Have a good week.

Love Chrissie xx

Farms, fields and patchworked landscapes

Hello everyone, today here in Newcastle NSW we are having the hottest day so far of the season - 37degrees C  which is about 99 degrees F , so I'm  dreaming of lush green fields in a misty landscape. This is literally a patchworked tag from scraps of paper and a snippet of a sketch. The quote is from some of my own writing which strangely enough has stuck in my head from a long time ago. I have enjoyed getting my head around this month's themes trying to come up with something different although I have not been able to stop a girl's face  appearing somewhere.

Patchwork fields

Hi Everybody!

Hope your week is going well.

I made a digital tag on a patchwork background,
and must say I like the effects I achieved, I just don't quite know how 
I did it....anyway, this is my interpretation
of patchwork fields:

Have a good week, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!

Reindeer and Stags

Hi everyone,
 I kept putting this one off, inspiration had left the building. I think I may have gone OTT with it but I enjoyed doing it in the end. Keep warm and stay safe all of you.

hi tag friends.  great lovely things posted by all of you so far.  i really wanted to play this week but admit i didn't have much energy or time for creativity this week.  i managed this:

the reindeer is a digital stamp by gecko galz and the paper is from gecko galz as well.  the rickrack and border are from my stash.

i hope you enjoy; love to all.
