Deep Ocean Challenge Blog - Guest Designer

Hello Everyone!

It's an exciting day for me as I am here as the Guest Designer for the Deep Ocean Challenge Blog. I have never guested for them before and I am really excited to craft along side their talented design team!! The current theme is "YOUR FAVOURITE COLOUR COMBO". Well this one wasn't hard for me, PINK PINK AND MORE PINK combined with neutrals!! haha!!

I was going for a vintage garden feel, so I used a couple of new papers that I actually picked up for my new junk journal hobby (one that I am struggling with). I got the paper packs at Michael's, one is Recollections, the other I'm not familiar with.




I decided to try making the flowers out the matching papers and I have to say how much I enjoy the look of the subtle patterns and perfectly corresponding colours. Although this paper was a little flimsy to work with, I stand firm in my determination to use this technique again.




Not sure if you can tell in the photo, but the flourish design on the paper actually has a touch of glitter in it. I thought a little bling stick pin would fit this perfectly.

The fabulous little green leaf sprigs and the "cherish" sentiment were die cuts that came to me from my good friend Sanderijn of Live, Laugh, Love. I'm not sure what brand they are. If anyone knows, can you let me know in the comments.





I am entering the following wonderful challenges:

- Moving Along with the Times - 16. In The Garden
- In the Pink - CHALLENGE #90 - SPRING FLOWERS
- Aud Sentiments Challenge Blog - #151 Bingo + A Sentiment 
(I completed 3 rows with these items - Ribbon, Paper Punch, 2 Patterned Papers, Die Cuts, Flowers, Lace)

***
Spring is really showing it's face here recently and I've not let a day of it go to waste! Of course by the time this goes live, the weather will be freezing cold and they're even calling for snow! I refuse to take down my new patio umbrella darn-it-all!!






Just a cool shot, saw rings in my vision for hours after taking this one! DOH!


I caught an image of a Blue Jay. He was hiding behind a branch and just wouldn't show his face! I will be entering this image into the fabulous "Our Beautiful World" where the prompt this week is "HIDE".


Everybody say Hello to Dee Dee. She is a real cutie, reminds me of Dianna. She's very tiny, just like Dianna, she has the same orange markings, the same round face and even the same shy personality as Dianna. I've been reluctant to name her, but I just can't keep calling her 'hey there'. Here's to a long life Dee Dee!


My token coffee shot, looks like the clouds are rolling in already.


That's it for today. Thank you for stopping in and for all the amazing comments. I read and appreciate every single one! If you have any questions, please let me know.

  2. Pamellia, you've done it again! I never tire of admiring your creations, you are a master of of grouping together collections of beautiful elements that result in something wonderful to look at! I know there's a real art to it, because I've tried it and mine just look like a random collection of stuff lumped together! Ah well, I'll just keep watching the videos!
    Fantastic photos too...particularly that 'hiding' Bluejay!

  38. Congratulations on your GDT, you certainly made a beautiful card for them, the papers are gorgeous and I love your flowers - delicate and beautiful. I see that someone else has already said, the 'cherish' is a Tim die, from the Handwritten Love set.

    Dee Dee is so cute!! I love her colouring. I also love the picture of the water with the sun shining off the surface, those spiky branches sure look lethal but the grasses waving in the breeze are fantastic. Great photos! Hugs, Anne xx

  39. Your lady has pearls, diamonds, lace, ribbon, flowers, butterflies and her own person snowy owl.... how lucky is she!!!????????? This is lovely Pamellia. Reminds me of a Victorian movie where everything was so elegant and ritzy. Really lovely roses - both on the paper and the ones you created.

    I am soooooooooooooooooo excited to see DeeDee. Yes - I am claiming a Bible promise for her.... with long (animal) life will God satisfy you and show you His salvation!!!!!!!! She is lovely and yes - so looks like Dianna. Maybe they were sisters!

    Heheheh so true - you birdie is definitely hiding!!! Love that picture - you are really so great with your camera girl. I so enjoy your artwork but your posts are even more fabulous with the wondrous photos!!!! Happy Easter! XXj.

  50. So beautiful Pamellia, I love the wee frame and the owl, but it's of course the layers of delish shabby chic multimedia texture you add that give your cards such a special vibe and feel. Each is truly a little work of art hun. Hugs, Wends x

  51. Fabulous card Pamellia, lots of lovely colours and pretty flowers. The flamboyant bow almost has a personality of its own and the butterfly really pops off the card - it is so pretty. There is so much to see and I spot something different every time I look.

    We had one day of spring last week but winter is back with a vengeance today! Dee Dee is very sweet and looks very young but surely she could not be from an early litter?

    Keep warm.
