Viki the Viking....:)

 Image- Viki the Viking..
coming soon to a Krista Smith Saturated Canary Digi's near you!! :)

Evening Peeps!!!
How are you all this fine friday night/ morning depending on where you are in the world!!!

I have to share with you all that this week has been a really hard one emotionally for our little family and I have had some very sad days. Yesterday I needed me some girly time and I got out my art journal to soothe myself a bit.

This gorgeous little image is called Viki the Viking and she is one of the new releases coming up from Krista is just what I needed to perk me up. I was inspired by one of the passages from the bible we were unpacking in church on tuesday night. I knew what I wanted to do right away.

A good old splodging of frayed burlap DI and magnolia swirly stamping around my pages and then a bit of Tim Holtz vintage lace border down the centres, a weathered clock, some waco pearl pen and and that was the base to my pages. I also splotched some crafty notions spray over the top, it is actually a gorgeous shimmery bronzey colour in the light but it wouldn't show in the picces :(

I typed out my passage, The armour of God (ephsians 6: 13-17) and then snipped it all up! I inked the edges, popped some glue on and squooshed it all around the page. have you ever noticed how much it cheers you up just to squoosh things around with no real layout? (...its so funny though because once I had finished I noticed my little subconscious had been following its own pattern!!) 

Here's a close up of Viki....

Isn't she adorable???!!! she is a complete must peeps!!
the font I used is called Viking and is free from dafont, I love the way it fitted perfectly with my little Viki, perfick!!! 
Please excuse my piccies but I keep forgetting to charge my camera so have been using my old one and I just can't get the focus as good as my newer camera!!!

I want to enter this is for Papertake weekly- one for the girls. I really enjoyed making a girly page for my journal and it really did cheer me up a whole tonne ( thank you krista, love yah,mwah xxxx) and the 4 crafty chicks challenge -Girls Rule!...well if this little chick doesn't scream girl power I don't know what will!! :)
