We’re ALL Mad Here!!!

VLS Mini HP Pocket Page

Don’t you just love the whimsical world of Alice in Wonderland? I do! Alice and all the quirky characters of wonderland have always held a special place in my heart. Janet of Vera Lane Studio introduced and amazing digistamp set of characters & quotes this week!

il_570xN.1389748569_bpyj Aren’t they adorable?! You can get them here. Be sure to check out all the other digistamps in the shop as well! There is something for everyone and every occasion!

The featured image above is a pocket page in my mini Happy Planner. The four small pockets are 2×2 inches and the large middle pocket is approximately 3×4.25 inches. Each image is printed on Canson watercolor paper and painted with Brea Reese watercolor and glitter inks. Handwritten quotes from the book or movies.

I absolutely love how they look printed directly onto onto the mini Happy Planner pages and painted with Brea Reese glitter inks! Again I added handwritten quotes. I embellished the Mad Hatter page with spiral and star confetti and did an ink splatter on the Alice page. Lil Absolem in the corner is a twinchie that wasn’t used on the pocket page above.

Above you will see a close up of all the twinchies (two by two inch squares) I made with these versatile and fun characters. I found it fun to paint them in non traditional colors too! Never be afraid to do your own thing!

Oh before I forget… design team member Corrie Herriman is hosting the monthly ATC swap on the VLS Digistamps Facebook Group. This months theme is “Wonderland,” come join in the fun!

Be sure to give the other ladies on the Design Team a follow as well!

Hope you enjoyed my design team inspiration post this week.

Nurse Dee arrives at Vera Lane Studio

The awesome yet wicked Nurse Dee was released this week on Vera Lane Studio. She is such an awesome character! She can be used on get well cards, art journals or in your Happy Planner!

I painted her with Brea Reese watercolor inks. The colors used are: ocean green, lake blue, violet, pink, neutral grey, gold glitter, medium magenta crimson and ultramarine blue.

For the image above in my art journal I wanted to give the feel of an asylum and yes Nurse Dee is way past her candy striper days but this is a nuthouse! Lol I’m thinking she may be a patient herself 😂 Brea Reese inks we’re used on the image above as well.

The ATCs above are a combination of a few VLS digistamp sets.

Tweedle Dee & Tweedle Dum

Paper Doll used on both ATCs

Betelgeuse

Pumpkin Boy & Cat

We have an ATC swap going on this month over on the Vera Lane Studio Facebook group  that I am hosting. The theme is Mixed-Up Halloween!

Painted with Brea Reese inks and I made the little pumpkin with Papercakes by Serena Bee digital papers from the October Nights collection and a sticker & sentiment from her accessory sets. I will be using papers from her digital sets throughout the month.

Hope you enjoyed this weeks post!

Seahorse & Octopus New Release | Vera Lane Studio


This weeks new release digistamp set on Vera Lane Studio is: 

Seahorse & Octopus!! It has a whopping 14 digistamps in this one set! So much you can do with all those goodies! It makes for a perfect companion set to the last release The Mermaid!

(Just click the images to be transported to the VLS Etsy store)


My first project is a pocket page layout in my mambi mini Happy Planner where I keep all my Vera Lane Studio design team information. I painted the entire image with Brea Reese Glitter Inks! I arranged the images in photoshop and then painted the page. Lastly, I trimmed the page to fit into my pocket page. It’s sooo bright and sparkly!

My second project I made an ATC featuring the seahorse and various other pieces from this weeks set. I also painted the entire piece with Brea Reese Glitter Inks. I layered the seahorse and rocks on top of the main card with pop dots as you can see in the image below.

I hope you enjoyed my post for this week. I’m sure you’ll see me use these images a lot more in the future.

Black & White ColorPOP


This week over in the Vera Lane Studio Facebook group it is Black & White with a pop of color. In the beginning this was a very challenging theme and then after making a few I absolutely love it! Most of the black and white pieces have only been painted/colored with Neocolor ii water soluble crayons in black. The backgrounds were mostly various watercolor paints or inks. 

I made a quick video and posted on my YouTube channel. Click image below and be magically transported there🦄


I am also hosting the ATC swap with the same theme. Below are the two ATCs I made for the swap. If you’re reading this you should come join the group!

iYoga and Cuteness!


One of my projects for this week I made a divider for my mini Happy Planner featuring digistamps from the iYoga set from Vera Lane Studio. 


Above you can see the progression of this simple project that took a little less than two hours to complete. I used Neocolors ii to color her and the flower. The background was made using distress oxides and a stencil. I do apologize for not taking more pics but I was coloring and painting and just forgot.

She is available by request only from the Vera Lane Studio Etsy store. Just click image above.

I made a few more projects with the iYoga set. A couple of ATCs. The top one is a sneak peek for a project coming up next week over on the Vera Lane Studio Facebook group. You should come join the fun! 

I also made a card with The Cutest Little Girl digistamp set.


She’s just a lil ATC I painted and added to a premade card and inked the edges with distress oxides. She is available by request from Vera Lane Studio.

Hope you enjoyed my post today!
