A Bit of a Change...!

You may notice, I've started to replace the small image and watermark with a coloured image as I don't think the watermark was working - too easy to clean off and I think you get a better idea of the image when it's coloured - a bit like the rubber stamps with the image on the wooden handle!
Hope you like this way of displaying my images.

Let me know what you think

Instructions for watermarks

It's in a .png format. Take care not to re-save it as a jpg (very easily done!)as it will no longer be transparent.

Save it to a convenient location, like your desktop or a file in your 'photos' folder.

Take your photo and save it.

Open it in your graphics program..

Open watermark.

Click 'copy' on watermark and MINIMIZE or CLOSE watermark.

Click on photo and 'paste' . You watermark will appear in the centre of your photo (and possibly the wrong size too as I make them big for a good clean resolution when reduced).

Use your 'move' tool to move it to where you want. On my program the same tool can alter size too.

Once happy with the watermark's size/position, 'save' photo with a title and in a place you will find it again.

Not been over here very much recently - been way too busy drawing to actually upload very much! LOL!

Mainly being asked for Pet Portraits and I'd like to put them on here but have the usual problem of watermarking them effectively and I don't have time just now for colouring - which is why I've not updated for a while.

One I'm happy to post though is a bespoke one though it may be a bit late for most of you to use.....
Please feel free to 'snag' this one for a while - if you would be very kind and credit Eiglas with the image, should you use it (just 'image by Eiglas' is fine!) it would be very much appreciated!

Offer ended - image removed

Wishing you all a wonderful Christ mas 2012 and New Year 2013!

Southern Gals Challenge - Baby Baby...!

This week the Southern Gals have turned their attention to all things maternal - and that means babies!

As you probably know. I have one or two digi-stamps of babies.....and also baby-themed digital paper kits, but this time I've used one of my Eiglas digi-stamps, called 'A Little Secret...' portraying a pregnant young woman, which was actually a bespoke drawing I did for a friend who was making a card for one of her pregnant friends.

Looking at it now, I wished I'd put a bow on it too and I shall, on the 'real' one!  I may take another photo later.  Anyway, I'm sure the cards over at Southern Gals are much better than mine anyway. Why not go have a look?

Southern Gals - Things With Wings!

It's that time of the month again!  The lasses at Southern Gals have a theme of 'Things with Wings' this week and in honour of this occasion I have launched a new collection of digis the Eiglas Faeries.

Being of a 'certain age' I have fond memories of the illustrations in 1950's 'faery-tale' books and as I have two willing and able models to myself most days, I thought it would be nice to make some 'faery' drawings with a 1950's feel.

This card is the debut of my 'Bobbikin'. He's only a baby faery and is just sitting on his toadstool trying to think up mischief.  I hope you like him although I've already had some 'eeukk's directed at his antennae so he's available 'naked' too (although the 1950's faeries did have them!)!

Please do pop over to Southern Gals - they're an incredibly talented  team and will inspire you to even greater pieces of art!

The model for my 'Bobbikin' was, again, my Ada although he wanted to be a boy!  He's coloured with my Copics but this particular image I printed onto glossy paper too. The bp is Kay & Co from their 'Mega-pad' grunge selection.

Hope you like him and you trip 'down under'!

Southern Girl's Chgallenge

I Love the Southern Girls' Challenge - they're always upbeat and fun! So, to follow the girly theme they have this week, I'm using one of my own digis - Lola - who is definitely a girl and who loves shopping, her puppy  and, being a typical young female, sulking!

Lola's due for more adventures soon!

Pop over to Southern Girls and have a look at the creations their talented team have come up with this week - super!

....eeeeuw! I've just looked at those photos - they're awful! I'll do 'em again tomorrow!

Eiglassing Sponsoring C.R.A.F.T Challenge

Here we are again with a wonderful new challenge at C.R.A.F.T  to sponsor!
I love the team at C,R.A.F.T they're such a lovely, friendly lot and so talented too, which is why I'm delighted for Eiglas to sponsor them every couple of months this year.

This month the theme is an 'inspirational picture' and I can't wait to see what you all come up with!  The winner of this particular challenge can choose £10.00 worth of digis or paperkits from my shop over at 

I'd be very happy if whilst you're over there, you could leave a constructive suggestion or comment on how I can improve my site/digis/paperkits or what else you would like to see.

The team over at C.R.A.F.T would love you to pop in and have a look at the wonderful projects they've come up with using my stuff and if you could also pop onto their personal blogs and leave a comment, that would be even more fabulous!

Here is my demo card for this challenge.

Jo's beautiful Highland photograph inspired the colours and the tartan and I thought my 'Monarch' fitted it well too. 

The blue, aubergine and tartan papers are from my Eiglas 'Galcelt' paperkit, which, hopefully, will be on my Eiglassing site soon and the digi is my Eiglas 'Monarch' which is on there already.  

I've coloured the image with my beloved Copic markers.

Look forward to seeing you all soon!

Southern Girl's Sponsorship

Because I don't run any challenges from this site, I didn't think to put a write-up for Southern Girls Sponsorship on here, so here it is!

Eiglas sponsoring Southern Girls Challenge #41

It's all go this year, here at Eiglas! 
Between Carol Smith and Yellow Moon and my new sponsorships with Jo and the team at C.R.A.F.T and this week's sponsorship with Southern Girls Challenge blog, I'm very nearly back with the programme and crafting again! LOL!

I'm so chuffed that these lovely craft challenge teams like my stuff and want to use it I jumped at the chance to share my paperkits and digis with them. 

I also want to share them with you and so am offering a £10.00 gift token to spend at my digi store ;

...so do pop over there and have a look-see what you fancy!  I'd really appreciate any thoughts and comments too - good and bad!

These are two seriously talented teams and I cannot wait to see what they do with my kits and digis.

Like I said, this week, it's my privilege to be working withSouthern Girls and their theme is 'Must Add Sentiment' so please do pop over to their blog and see what lovely creations they have made using some of my paper kits. 

They're a lovely bunch of ladies and have recently had a re-shuffle of their team and are welcoming a few new members, so please try to get onto their individual blogs and comment on their work, the same as they do for yours.

Here is my demo card for the challenge.

The paper is from my Eiglas 'Roseheart' paper kit, one of my favourite collections with very varied designs and a super colour pallette, and the quote is my own too. 
I hope you like it!

Look forward to seeing all your entries!

Latest Digi...Bobby!

A friend requested an image for her friend's little boy, who is one year old at the end of the month, so here is 'Bobby'!  He's a real boy - couldn't mistake him for a girl - but he is so cute! I was furnished with a photograph and he has the biggest grin and the most amazing eyes - I hope I've done them justice! 

I'll pop him under the Children & Babies tab too!
