Last week Skullies was released on Vera Lane Studio . The project above is in my handmade cotton art journal. The background and each skullie is painted with Brea Reese glitter inks.

I just love these lil characters on the ATC I created for the Mixed Up Halloween Swap. I used Vera Lane Studio digistamps from the following sets: Skullies, Lil Tricksters, and Stella Luna. The background and sentiment are from Papercakes by Serena Bee. ATC is colored with Inktense pencils.

Thank you for stopping by and hope you will join us over on the Vera Lane Studio Facebook group.


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


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!

      Decadent and Sweet Treats on Vera Lane Studio

      It’s new release week at Vera Lane Studio Facebook group! This week Janet brings us Cupcakes and doughnuts!Cupcakes

      I made a few ATCs with the new digistamps set.

      This ATC was colored with Brea Reese alcohol markers. I believe the frosting alone has four colors in it. I think of a sexy, decadent dessert when I see this one;) The background is also Brea Reese products as well. Glitter brush pens in black and silver.

      The ATC above was created using inktense watercolor pencils. And the background was painted with Tim Holtz distress oxides.

      I would love to receive a birthday cupcake like the one above. I painted the cupcake with Brea Reese glitter inks and the striped background was done by drawing stripes with Brea Reese alcohol markers.

      Don’t forget to join us in the Vera Lane Studio Facebook group! Always so much inspiration to be found there and the first place to see new digistamps!
