This is my Design Team make for 
I am using the new image from Teri

 The theme this week is monochrome and I have chosen blue and white. 
I have coloured using promarkers and
highlighted with picket fence distress ink and
smooch pearl.
 Once the image was completed, I cut an apperture into
an A4 card and used this as a frame.
Finished using  a ribbon treatment and ebellishment.

Love and Peace,

On Fridays as part of the Halloween hop,
using a Smeared Ink digital art image
gives an extra chance in the draw.
I decide to use the

 Raven one image from Smeared Ink 

 to make this digital project
and enter it into the Smudgy Antics
Challenge here are the details straight from the blog:

Weekly Challenge: Movie Madness

The Challenge Theme for Smudgy Antics this week is
"Movie Madness".

Art is inspired by many things.  We want to see what kind of inspiration you can get from a movie.  Being October, I would suggest a scary or creepy movie of some sort.  If you insist upon making a Tinkerbell project, which will surely result in projectile vomiting on my part, then feel free to do so.  
*We do ask that you state the name of your movie of choice in case it is not evident to others looking at your project.


My project is inspired by 
The Birds

It is a bit flawed but I am still learning  Craft Artist Professional 2.

 One thing I have realised is that there must be 
something better for digital designing than 
a mouse.
With joint and muscle problems the  mouse becomes 
an instrument of torture rather quickly.

I hope you enjoy my offerings today and I want to say 
thank you very much for the lovely comments 
from hoppers and friends.
I have been a bit under the weather and 
have not been a good comment maker for a while
but have been trying to visit some. 

I cannot believe I have lasted this long 
as a blogger in the hop and I would 
now like to see it to the end. 
Fingers crossed -unless I have just 
been using the mouse on a digital
project, of course!! 
Love and Peace,
Vee xx
