Crafty play day makes

Hey peeps 

Here's what me and Linda got upto yesterday ...... We used an article in Craft Stamper as inspiration, again we both started off with the same ideas but go down different creative paths ....

Wall hanging 
I used a 6 x 6 mdf shape and covered it with hessian and painted it cream.
 Then rubbed a bit of Inka Gold over it to highlight the weave.
Used a torn bit of packaging and distressed it further and added some lace.
 
Made flowers with TH tattered florals die and TH Kraft card,
 added splats of inka gold and a bit of vintage photo DI.
The leaves are made with a spellbinder die
and just coloured with bundled sage and VPhoto  DIs 

I made some pearl and crystal pins up and made a few charms with my jewellery stash. 
Then just layered it all up around the Sepia Image (a topper I found) 
Then added the chain and charms 

The box 
Its an old box I'd previously painted and 'distressed' but hadn't done much else with it lol
I basically used left overs from the wall hanging
and just used a doily, some ribbon and a tag to jazz it up :) 

Thanks for looking

Crafty Play Day makes

Hi Peeps
Just a quickie to share the things I made over a Linda's yesterday .... She bought me this Tando kit so I thought we could have a bash and decorate them up .... then I made a tag for a challenge on FB x
Linda's is completely different from mine its so weird how we both set of in the same direction and end up with completely different projects ..... pop in and have a nosy, its so pretty
Anyway here's mine with a quick run down of what I did x



I painted and 'crackled' the back piece and the dummy shape, and covered the bobbin with a scrap of paper with tapes on it.
Then stamped a text stamp randomly all over the back piece, stamped with white acrylic over the buttons and the Kraft paper, also used a little archival ink to stamp on the buttons etc,
Once all dry I edged everything with vintage DI then used some oddments of hessian to layer up and used the bits from fraying as string on the buttons.
The Tag was just splatted with rainbow colours of Distress Stains a bit of vintage photo around the edges and stamped first with white acrylic then over stamped with black archival then a bow added ..... and it won woo hoo

Happy Campers Challenge No.22 Show us your Flowers


Hey Peeps

Its Challenge Day over at Happy Campers Challenge Blog

Our theme this time is
Show Us Your Flowers

Here's my contribution


I've done the 'Caught in Crystal' technique but with a twist

I love the effect you get but I hate the stink of the floor polish in my little craft cave
and couldn't be bothered taking it all down stairs to do on dining table
So I thought well so long as it dry's clear would it matter......
 soooo I've used
gloss acrylic medium instead and I'm really pleased with the results


Mix a good dollop of medium with water to make it runnier, I prob used half and half but of course this will depend on which medium you use
I also added a dollop of Liqutex glass bead medium

I stamped, embossed and coloured from the back using acrylic paint
splodged my mixture on then sprinkled mica and glitter on
 layered my tissue splodged it down and spritz a little water to help
I also dripped re-inkers on to the tissue which gave a fabby veined look
 and highlighted the crinkles in the tissue
I left it to dry over night before mounting with PVA and making the card

Stuff I've used
Indigo Blu - Anemone  Corner
Pebeo paints
Gloss acrylic medium from the works
Imagination Crafts micas
Diamond glitter
mix of dye based re-inkers
Gold mirri card
Bits from my stash

Thanks for looking

Hidden from view........ my make from Hels Workshop

Morning Peeps
 
I've finally got round to showing you all this make from Hels workshop in Southampton.
I had a fabby messy day with Pauline and Linda and all the other lovely ladies
 
We used a lot of distress inks and paints and worked on layering up and getting used to how it behaves when wet dry etc of course I had very mucky paws hee hee
 
Sorry the pics don't really pick up all the background details and vibrancy
if you haven't had a play with the distress paints yet
 you are really missing out .....they are most fabby
 
 
 
Cover showing a drippy runny technique
 
Lots of layers on this one, background stamping distress stains and inks and stencilling with paints
 
 

This and the one underneath are my fave pages tons of layering up with all the distress products and stencil and stamps
