A quick share

Hi Peeps
Just thought I'd share this
as I'd made it a while ago for a DT Ive now left, but it wasn't used
so now the date has passed I can share
(that did make sense in my head ha ha)
 

 
I distressed a piece of Kanban card and washed it with white acrylic
Did the same to the book page and the punched edging
then I just layered everything up
the cage was painted with white crackle paint
I added the bits and bobs
the die cut flourishes are bits of waxed paper I'd saved from a previous cutting session
I think the butterfly is a Choc Baroque Stamp ?

Play Date :)

Hi Peeps
Today I spent a most fabby day with Linda Simpson.......... not only did we craft.... we nipped to range and spent a small fortune on craft essentials ha ha .......... oh and did I mention the cake Nom Nom ?

We both did an altered canvas and here's my effort
 
 
I still need to add a few bits ....... but I'm happy with how its going, I need to leave it alone till i'm ready if that makes sense hee hee
The flowers and wish embeli were made from cold porcelain ..... I've even amazed myself how well they turned out :)

Ill post up the finished canvas soon once I've figured out what else it needs ha ha
Thank for looking

Altered photo box

Hi peeps
Just thought I'd share this with you all
I had much fun with it and had extremly mucky paws hee hee
 
I swapped this box for some bits with Lindsay and this is how it looked before I started
 
 
The first thing I did was to sand it lightly, then give it a coat of gesso.
Then I stuck strips of Tim Holtz printed tissue all over it with modgepodge.
 
 
 
I gave it a light wipe with watered down sand coloured acrylic paint.
Then I added random splodges of bronze distress crackle paint and once it was dry I applied white distress crackle over the top, mainly in the corners but with some random dabs here and there.
Once it had completely dried I ran my Antique Linen Distress stains over it and rubbed the edges with a bit of brown stazon.
Finally I applied a layer of matt modgepodge to seal it.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Then it was just a case of adding the brass corners and the flowers and lace, I also added a brass button to make it easier to lift the photo album bit out of the center.
The front window can house a picture but I've just made a picture up in CA2 printed onto card, laminted and fixed inside.
 
I really enjoyed making it
Thanks for looking
