Tracy Easson Illustrations


Tracy has set up a fabulous new FB group for her followers and one of the girls very kindly arranged an ATC swap. Now this is something totally new to me but I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed it.  The idea is you make ne and post it to a partner and she makes one and posts it to you!! Great Fun!

Here is the one I made and sent to me partner this time Anne Carslake

And here is the beauty I got back from Anne

I am hoping along with others that we will get to do this again very soon.  In the meantime do pop along and visit the new Group.

New Blog Title


New Blog

 Many of you may remember me from The Pain in the Neck Blogspot and Docrafts - I made lots of lovely friends on both these places that I will treasure forever but this is a brand new Blog to show my current artwork.

I have moved on so much now tinkering with Distress Inks and Watercolours as well as  my faithful pencils and Promarkers & Copics.

Since I last posted on The Pain in the Neck I have had 2 major surgeries for Cancer - bowel in January and a neuroendocrine tumour was found in my right lung whilst getting treatment for the bowel. I had the upper right lobe removed in April this year and have recovered reasonably well - had a stent inserted for 10 weeks over the festive season and honestly thought my time was up but it was removed at my request and I feel so much better now. Lets hope that the lifetime monitoring I get will keep everything at bay.

I don't like being called a survivor so I choose to call myself a THRIVER!!

You can find me on here on FB and here on IG.

 And my personal page is here on FB.

I will work out how to put these somewhere more obvious but at the moment my old brain isn't playing properly!! 

Do feel free to comment and follow as I would love to build up this page to what I had before and more.

DT card for Teddy Bo

Phew what a busy couple of weeks I have had......spent a few days with 4 yr old grandson up at my Mum in NE Scotland and since we came back I seem to have lost my tail - can't catch up with anything.  

Got my next DT card for the fabulous Teddy Bo. This is one of the April Collection - hope you have been along ans seen them all. It is such a great bargain if you join us.....

The papers are from my stash - trying to use up ones I found when I had a tidy up few weeks ago. She is coloured with Lyra pencils. Colours below ~

We do hope you will join us over on our FB pages - the membership one or the I Love Teddy Bo & Co and share with us any cards you make with your Bo; Bea or Oli images.  Come back again soon as I have another couple of cards to show you later this month!!

Also keep an eye out as we are almost at May and the brand new images are stunning!!!

Teddy Bo and Me!

I have been on Cloud 9 the last few days as the gorgeous uber talented Gayle Cook asked me to be on her DT for Teddy Bo and his friends!!!!  You all know I just ADORE them all and this is like  a dream come true for here is my first card that I am sharing with you using one of the beautiful images from the April Membership package that you can get here.

I coloured this cutie pie with my Lyra pencils; cut out a die and while still in the die used Distress Inks to make that sweet edge on the image then mounted  onto a beautiful paper from Pink Petticoat.

Look at these fabulous images that YOU could have..........
