This is for a card swap following a template, I got really stuck thinking what to use for the twin images then I decided on using Tim Holtz reindeer reflecting the image using a brayer and embossed it. I've used two different colours of glimmer mist not sure whether the camera has picked that up and finally I used my favourite Merry Christmas stamp.
I've been neglecting blog recently. Things are getting sent off before I've taken a picture or it's last minute photos that aren't any good. This is a card that I made for my mums birthday at the beginning of the month. It's on pearl white cardstock the light wasn't very kind on the day this was taken.
This is a fun little story book. We moved tables to use different colours and sit with other people. I made this using colours outside my comfort zone and couldn't resist giving it a spritzing to brighten it up a little, I'm not too sure whether the camera picked that up.
This box started it's life being white, it was great fun creating this piece, again sitting at a different colour table.
Above are the other two projects that I made at the Artsy Craft weekend run by Lin of LB Crafts and Leandra of Paper Artsy. Can't wait until the next event. Thank you ladies for a fantastic weekend.
I've just had one of the best crafting weekends of my life @ the Artsy Craft weekend run by Lin from LB Crafts and Leandra of Paper Artsy. The whole weekend was spent crafting and the theme was time using colour choices we had previously selected. I was truly amazed how individual we all made our projects using the same materials and colours for each colour group per table.
The main piece of the weekend was the clock. (top picture) I've still to fix the pieces in place.
The clock face has a base of Terra with inclusions, plus paint and more paint and glimmer mists and a tad more paint. :o)
The panels on the side of the canvas are made from embossed metal and the embellishment at the top is the most fun little UTEE Bird.
This weekend has been fabulous, using all of my favourite products. Meeting lovely people who enjoy doing the same thing and best of all having 2 superb tutors Leandra and Lin and their wonderful friendly helpers. If you get the opportunity to go to one of these Artsy Craft weekends my advice to you is go and enjoy yourself.
It's now Carol's turn to have her 2"x2" tiles as part of our forum's collaborative project. Carol couldn't decide on colours so I'm hoping these will fit in with the rest. . Can't wait to see how they look all mounted together.
I so very nearly didn't go to the show yesterday, as I had a cracking headache. It was only because I had a workshop booked with the very talented Lin of LB Crafts covering one of my favourite products, metal from Ten Second Studio and also meeting friends from different forums, for some it's a twice yearly meeting event but we're all so busy trying to fill our baskets it's usually just a quick hello. So it was really nice to sit and chat whilst crafting.
It's now Penny's turn to have her 2"x2" tiles as part of our forum's collaborative project. Penny chose hot colours with blue accents. Can't wait to see how they look all mounted together. Sorry for the delay Penny I had a terrible job trying to get the canvas to stick to the mountboard and had to use brads in the end, maybe I put to many layers on it! Gesso, paint, inks, mist sprays, glue distress inks, tyvek, alcohol inks etc. etc.
The tag I made whilst messing around with some ink sprays.
I thought I'd try to complete the Ready Steady Stamp Challenge the ingredients you can see listed below.
The triangle and sun are both very bright yellow card stuck down on a acetate sheet folded A5 card size. The sun is also stamped onto acetate to give it more depth. The little girl is holding the ribbon going all the way to the sun as if it were a balloon. Sorry the scanner doesn't show the acetate very well. I hope you like it. I've had great fun making it!
We've moved our forum friend Suse's up the list as she is very poorly, to have her 2"x2" tiles as part of our forum's collaborative project. Suse chose cream and sepia with black accents. My scanner seems to have ignored the fact that there is cream acrylic paint and cream crackle paint on the background and picked up more of the aged mahogany distress ink that is peeping through the cracks!
I'm so excited, the August issue of Craft Stamper hit the shelves yesterday and they have included my Golden Dreams inchie cube! It's all thanks to Carol, firstly for thinking of the forum challenge, writting the article and sending all the inchie cubes, leaving the magazine to choose which they would include. Thank You Carol!
Here's a sneak peak, for full details you'll need to see the magazine.
It's now Audrey's turn to have her 2"x2" tiles as part of our forum's collaborative project. Audrey chose brown and cream. I found it hard to get a good picture of these as they have reflective sheen these are taken in different lights.
I am having the most amazing time learning the different techniques from KC @ KC Willis Collage Camp. There is such a wonderful group of people on there, helping each other source products and being supportive. It's great fun chatting around the camp fire. If you have a look on KC's Blog there is a $300 shopping spree to be won.
It's now Deb's turn to have her 2"x2" tiles as part of our forum's collaborative project. Deb chose Tropical sea tones. I didn't succeed to get a decent picture of these as they're so reflective but I expect you get the general idea.
There's a collaborative project taking place on our forum. Eight of us to make 3 tiles each in a colour scheme picked by one of the participants who will then receive them in the post . We all get to choose our own colour scheme and will end up with a set of 24 tiles to do with as we wish. Chris is the first person to receive her tiles. Can't wait to see how they look all mounted together.
I love getting messy with inks, paints and different types of mediums.
Life's a joy when I get to play with something that's just a little bit different and it turns out ok ;-)
