IKE'S WORLD CHALLENGE - THINGS THAT FLY

SEXY MEXY - who's hooking up in the Universe? To find out, go to www.ikesart.com (here) and find this digi plus many more great ones (sexy, racy, goth, cute and every other type you might love.)
Yup - Our sexy Super Heroes!  (Adult Entertainment Only Folkies!) lol
These are NOT the characters of our long past are they...and certainly not the Super Heroes of our children's lives, though there are some pretty racy Super Heroes out there today (UGH!) that children are exposed to.

Having had that little rant, I hope you love Ike's Superman and Superwoman (of course! appropriately named by moi) as much as I do.  Be sure to enter your "things that fly"  at www.ikesworldchallengeblog.blogspot.ca (here) (omg - is anyone going to actually enter a man's fly? Maybe I have to do it, now that it is on my mind...or something that "fly's beneath!"  Did I actually say that????  We are defo doing the Adult Entertainment Today!!!

Enjoy
It is certainly going to be A Samara Thing!

Thank You.
Image result for SQUARE PEG IN A ROUND HOLE IMAGES

SOUND FAMILIAR?

What a great theme!  For me, I could relate to this in a snap.  And using Ike's images, from IKE'S STORE (here) I had so many choices to draw (ruff ruff) upon.  If you'd like to see some great Design Team Art inspiration, pop over to IWC.  If you want a super duper freebie, same.  And please - dip onto your own "square peg" (if you have one, that is) and let's see whatcha got!




Recipe:

  1. Put Medusa's c Head in the Art Bowl.
  2. Add and line up 12 dd's c gorgeous Skelly torso.
  3. Sprinkle Sexy Saucy Steampunk's c Breast's on top of Skelly 12 dd's c torso.
  4. Now layer Saucy's c Legs under 12 dd's c hip bones, shaping the legs and feet in some funky position of your choice.
  5. And finally, add the final topping of 12 dd's c femur and shin bones onto Saucy's c sexy booties.
  6. Glaze with color, shine, paint, crayon but mostly - with LOVE!


Its a Samara Thing!

IKE'S WORLD CHALLENGE - "PUN INTENDED"

YIKES!
This challenge theme is a killer for someone who isn't a "natch"  of a funny person (moi) but for our team, who made many "funnies with this theme" - bang on!  The girls really owned this one.  It's a must to go over to IKE'S WORLD CHALLENGE and see what the rest of the Design Team dreamed up using Ike's Images from her Store! 
Having my long haired grey cat Louis, who clearly does not know he is a cat, but thinks he is a Lion, who has been tamed to be a Lover indoors but a gigantico hunter while he sleeps outdoors, these images of IKE'S appealed to me big time!  And of course, being the youngest sib of 3 - the idea of both being a troublemaker and being picked on - well need I say more to all the youngest siblings out there!










It's a Samara Thing!

IKE'S WORLD CHALLENGE - A BIG SKETCHY!



It's an open challenge, where we can, as usual make any type of art as long as it follows the above sketch (usually a theme.)Today is a new challenge over at IKE'S WORLD CHALLENGE.
FOR A FREEBIE.....
Pop over to Ike's World Challenge {HERE}
I hope you enjoy the "out of the box" use of IKE'S two images - PRISONER OF LOVE and LOVE LETTERS.

IKE'S WORLD CHALLENGE - HO HO HO

CHRISTMAS IN JULY
or in my case...Chanukah in July
This image from IKE is priceless!  When I saw our theme, at IKE'S WORLD CHALLENGE THIS WEEK, it reminded me of how darn 'sexy mexy' the elfs look these days...
When I was a kid, elves weren't sexy - they were exactly as I imagined they would be in Santa's Workshop!  Little kids, working like little beavers making toys. Whatever happened to that?
So when I thought of how I wanted to do up the art for this, the 'current' mall Santa booth seemed rather perfect.  I am not sure what would be the case in a Chanukah Booth.  Perhaps a terribly "sexy mexy" dreidle!  OMG -  Has Va Sholem!  (G-d Forbid!) LOL
Enjoy your "Christmas in July" shopping, as I know over here in Canada, many of the stores have huge sales in July so those who get a jump start on wrapping and being all dang prepared for the festivities just walk into the day in complete perfection, ready with a gorgeous table set, turkey cooked and a lovely household of relatives around the fireplace!
My house?  You smell grease from cooking Potatoe Latkes, money (pennies) are klinking and being thrown across the dining room table, while the kids (and some very eager adults) are playing the Dreidle Game, Chanukah Songs are being sung, someone is complaining that I either forgot to buy apple sauce, or creme cheese, sour creme or jam, and gold Chanukah Gelt (Gold Paper Foil wrapped money) is all over the place and everyone is on a sugar high!  
Then there is a gorgeous area, all decorated in Blue and Silver, where 8 days of presents, one each for each person, for each of the 8 days, is set. It is quite beautiful at my house, as I have - as of late - opted for a white fluffy puffy tree (yup, I stole the idea from somewhere!) all decorated in Shiny, glittery, sparkly blue, with a Mogen David on the top, and all the prezzies lay beneath.  Each evening, as we light the next candle on the Menorah (the Candelabra that is used for Chanukah to celebrate the finding of the Oil that gave Light for the 8 days) a drop of wax is put in the Chanukah song book, with the year written beside it.  Then, the best part for the kids - they get to open one gift.
And then the games are on!
So Merry Christmas Everyone and Happy Chanukah and Happy Holidays and Joyous Season in July. Whatever your flavour of the Season...may it be happy and may it be loving.
That's what I see it is all about.

THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO - It's A Movie!

ANOTHER CHANCE TO VLOG!I have used IKE'S DRAGON KITE and IKE'S WELSH FLAG from www.ikesart.com for our challenge
over at Ike's World Challenge at www.ikesworldchallenge.blogspot.com.  Please enjoy yourself by visiting our challenge, picking up one of IKE'S wonderful freebies and joining all the great artiste's in the submissions to the challenge.
Now...
I am having a blast with this new adventure into VLOGGING!
How great to discover a new artform
To be able to combine it with being a DT
To distill photos and come up with good music to typify a feeling when creating.
I didn't understand what the attraction to VLOGGING was all about...until the last 2 weeks.
Now, I just have to figure out all the upload, download, export, conversion, compression of it all and I will be like a bat out of hell!
Until then...
As mentioned above, a reminder...I've chosen IKE'S wonderful DRAGON KITE and WELSH FLAG to use in combination with the movie THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO.

-Stieg Larsson

"IT DID NO GOOD TO CRY.  SHE HAD LEARNED THAT EARLY ON.  SHE HAD ALSO LEARNED THAT EVERY TIME SHE TRIED TO MAKE SOMEONE AWARE OF SOMETHING IN HER LIFE, THE SITUATION JUST GOT WORSE. CONSEQUENTLY, IT WAS UP TO HER TO SOLVE HER PROBLEMS BY HERSELF, USING WHATEVER METHODS SHE DEEMED NECESSARY."

"I CAN BE A REGULAR BITCH, JUST TRY ME."  "KEEP IN MIND THAT I'M CRAZY, WON'T YOU."  "IMPULSIVE ACTIONS LED TO TROUBLE, AND TROUBLE COULD HAVE UNPLEASANT CONSEQUENCES."
-Stieg Larsson
"MUCH STRONGER BOYS IN HER CLASS SOON LEARNED THAT IT COULD BE QUITE UNPLEASANT TO FIGHT WITH THAT SKINNY GIRL.  UNLIKE OTHER GIRLS IN THE CLASS, SHE NEVER BACKED DOWN AND SHE WOULD NOT FOR A SECOND HESITATE TO USE HER FISTS OR ANY WEAPON AT HAND TO PROTECT HERSELF.  SHE WENT AROUND WITH THE ATTITUDE THAT SHE WOULD RATHER BE BEATEN TO DEATH THAN TAKE ANY SHIT."
-Stieg Larsson
"THE MEDIA HAVE THE ABILITY TO ATTRACT THE CRAZIEST PEOPLE TO CALL IN PERFECTLY ABSURD TIPS.  EVERY NEWSROOM IN THE WORLD GETS UPDATES FROM UFOologists, graphologists, scientologists paranoiacs AND EVERY SORT OF CONSPIRACY THEORIST."
-Stieg Larsson

"I'VE HAD MANY ENEMIES OVER THE YEARS.  IF THERE IS ONE THING I HAVE LEARNED IT IS NEVER ENGAGE IN A FIGHT YOU ARE SURE TO LOSE.  ON THE OTHER HAND, NEVER LET ANYONE WHO HAS INSULTED YOU GET AWAY WITH IT.  BIDE YOUR TIME AND STRIKE BACK WHEN YOU ARE IN A POSITION OF STRENGTH - EVEN IF YOU NO LONGER NEED TO STRIKE BACK."
-Stieg Larsson
"ISN'T IT FASCINATING THAT NAZIS ALWAYS MANAGE TO ADOPT THE WORD FREEDOM."
-Stieg Larsson


Below is my VIDEO RENDITION of our challenge IT'S A MOVE - something I really enjoyed putting together with the Soundtrack from THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO.  I hope you enjoy it. Please feel free to enlarge it and sit back to enjoy the full experience. xox

Dear Ikella
www.ikesart.com

You are the most amazing DT Leader, a beautiful life long friend and a cherished womyn trail blazer of the Universe.

IKE'S WORLD CHALLENGE - SING US A SONG!

CONGRATS to Donna M from POPSICLE TOES on the last IKE'S WORLD CHALLENGE! That little ratty meow Ike drew up for us is soooo gorgeous - I love what you did with the sketch.  
Good ol' MR. ED!
Who remembers this Talking Horse?



IKE created fabulous images of horses because one of our DT's,  craftyanimal.blogspot.ca/  is a completely wonderful horsie person and has actually, with a team, brought a horse "back to life!'  So, when I saw the images IKE so kindly made for her, and saw this image, Mr. Ed jumped into my mind from some EEK 50 years later!
I hope you enjoy what I created from IKE'S art, found {HERE}




Isn't he adorable?



I couldn't stop at one image!  Are you kidding?
IKE created GENE and FRED for me...Is this not incredible?
Do you remember this?  What were you doing at this time in your life?
Me?  I was laying on the livingroom floor, watching every backdrop in Hollywood, every swimming pool Esther dove into, every lamp post Gene danced around (I asked IKE to add FRED cuz they were such great buds - I know - sacreligious!) and I figured THIS is what the outside WORLD "really" looked like beyond MY 4 walls!

Now this is what I call controlled confidence!






See you over there
But in the meantime...
I hope you find time to sing in the rain!

SIMPLE...
It's a SAMARA thing!

IKE'S WORLD CHALLENGE - "EASTER (PESACH) BONNETS" - WEEK TWO


Ike, of Ike's Art Store, created a lovely image for the gals on the team.



Then, being the amazing friend and artist and Design Team Leader (oopsie - probably wrong order - I will do that again) Artiste, Design Team Leader, Friend (because I am writing as one of her Design Teamie persons) she accommodated the image to me for Pesach (Passover) and sent me a whole bunch of images that were for Pesach.

I came up with this.


I hope you enjoy it.

But in the meantime - head over to IKE'S WORLD CHALLENGE if you would like the Easter Bonnets Shop as a FREEBIE! 

So make sure you enter the challenge because it is uber amazing that IKE is giving away this image for free!!!! And be sure to check out the rest of her great images at Ike's  Art Store.  You rock Ike.

Pretty Yummy Theme

For this person, who is not so girly girl though (and dang it would have been so beautiful if I was because I love the cards that are frilly dilly and all dainty with these lovely frames) I was assigned the perfect designer to work with for the ONE STITCH AT A TIME CHALLENGE (which I hope you will attend HERE) - Panda Bear Designs - over at Stitchy Bear's Digi Outlet.
Thanks Stitch!  
Who I love to the end of the planet and back again. 
I hope you enjoy my Make.
