Crafty Day canvas

Hi Peeps
Just a quick post showing the results of my crafty day at Marie Celine's with Lindsay, Shelagh and Christine

We had a fabby time and all had very mucky paws ha ha

I took inspiration from Hels Sheridans article in this months Craft stamper


The picture doesn't show all the texture and colour's very well sorry and the scroll down the right is modelling paste touched up with Inka Gold

I had much fun making it and I think I will do another one with a lot more stuff on once I have a few more large embellishment's as my smaller ones were lost on this canvas as its A4

Thanks for looking
Be Good Kath xx

Happy Camper Challenge No.6 - Winters Here

Hi Peeps
Challenge Day over at Happy Campers Challenge Blog and this time the theme is Winters Here!
Hope you can come and join us

I took my inspiration for this card from Tina , she does some fabby vintage stuff.

I wanted the papers to look wintery and snowy so as the acrylic paint was drying I very liberally applied lots of glamour dust x Im now sparkling in places no woman should sparkle and the cats all twinkle as they go by its very christmassy here ha ha

 
I cut craft card and vintage script paper to about 8 x 8 to mat and layer and sewed round them, then splodged white acrylic around the edges and sprinkled with glamour dust
Then cut up a piece of box and grunged it up with distresser and picket fence crackle paint



 

The bow is made from a torn strip of lining material spritzed with mica spray.
 
I printed the image and clear embossed it then applied crackle paint around the edges
 
 
Im entering it into the following Challenges

LEJ Designs challenge No 31 - favourite technique

Morning Peeps
It's Challenge day over at LEJ challenge blog and this week the theme is favourite techniques

One of my faves, its quite old fashioned but I still love to do it, I find it quite therapeutic to do ha ha
I've used a quicky glue pen on acetate and lots of glitter to cover Lindsay's snow man image, then mounted him on a CC backgruond abd added the Tim Holtz die cuts x
You need a bit of patience waiting for sections to dry but I love the effect.


The jackpot prize for using one of Lindsay's images in your challenge entry is now at a whopping nine images
So why not pop over and have a browse round the shop LEJ Designs

Hels workshop canvas

Hi peeps
Just thought I'd share this altered canvas I did yesterday at the workshop I went to with Hels Sheridan
I finished it this morning :)

We edged the canvas with acrylic paint, cut up different sizes of papers and layered them up, sealed then masked areas with paste and added embossing powders, also edged some of the papers with a black line and smudged it in
I added the flowers and the heart then thought I'd finish it at home :)
This morning I filled a memory frame with utee n added the words and then added some grunge board letters :)
I'm quite pleased with the results and we all had such a laugh and a fabby day x
