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!

      Little Artist and Birthday Monster!

      Le Petit Artiste

      This week I decided to show a few projects I made in the past few months but haven’t shared publicly. The lil artist above I painted over a year ago. I decided to add her to a new background ATC I created using Brea Reese glitter inks in medium magenta, Violet and lake blue. I then loosely outlined with Brea Reese fine liner pens the blobs of ink to make flowers. It was a great way to use an older project:)

      Backyard Monsters

      Cake Sketches

      The altered index card above was sent out to a swap friend last month for her birthday. I also included a gift certificate for Vera Lane Studio. I love giving a gift that others can use to create!

      Lil Morty from the Backyard Monsters set is one of my favorites! He’s so much fun to color and super easy to cut out! I felt the cake was the perfect hat for a birthday card.

      Both Morty and the cake were painted using Brea Reese Watercolor and glitter inks. I used a wet brush on dried paint to get the spots/freckles on his face.

      Also come join us over on the Vera Lane Studio Facebook group! Lots of fun! Swaps! And an all around great community!

      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!

      So Much Sparkle!

      There’s so much sparkle on Vera Lane Studio Facebook group this month! The theme is add a lil sparkle! We have an ATC swap each and every month Teresa Morgan is the host for August!

      The ATC above I made using the Oh, La, La digistamp set. The digistamp set is avail by request in the Vera Lane Studio Etsy shop. Her dress definitely cried out for some sparkle! I used the Red and Neutral Grey glitter inks from Brea Reese.

      The entire card was colored with Brea Reese Watercolor & glitter inks and fine liner markers.

      The ATC below was made with Pumpkin Boy and Cat digistamp set. Brea Reese glitter ink and fine liner pens were used to paint the adorable lil trick or treater. I can’t wait for fall and Halloween. So you’ll probably see lots more as we get closer 🙂

      Come join in the monthly Vera Lane Studio swaps and fun!

      Until next time…
