Crafty Play Day Make

Hi Peeps
 
This week I was over at Linda's and I showed her a canvas covering technique that I'd done previously at a Hels Sheridan workshop ....
The idea being you can use up your odds n sods of paper scraps
 
Me and Linda decided to use matching papers to tie our canvas together better, rather than scraps. If you have a go and your papers are very random do a 'wash' over with cream or white acrylic and it will pull the shades and colours together for you.
 
Here's mine


 
Stuff I Used
Prima Engraver paper pad
PVA
Bees Wax
Stabilo All pencil for outlining
Black acrylic paint
Various Tim Holtz/Ranger embelishments and grunge shapes
Flowers and other random bits from my stash
Inka Gold
 
We had a fabby day, and of course we both had very mucky paws ha ha ha
 
 Challenges entered
Craft Blogging Central - Anything Goes
Just for Fun - Anything Goes
Altered Eclectics - Anything Goes
Inspire me Friday's - Always Anything Goes

Crafty Play Day makes

Hi Peeps

Here's what Me and Linda got up to on Wednesday .... we both had a go at decorating these house shaped configuration type things .... Linda did a garden theme and I wanted to display my collection of shells etc from Vietnam so I came up with this .....


 
 



 
Here's a quick rundown of what I did
 
Two coats of Eco Green acrylic - Sand
A coat of Imagination Crafts Crackle Medium
One coat of white acrylic
A thickish coat of Mod Podge Matt leaving brush strokes
A wipe over with watered white acrylic to give a white washed effect
Cut out sandy/wooden backing papers and glued, poem printed and added the same way
Once dry I gave a final coat of Mod Podge to seal.
Then I just glued the drift wood pieces in a tower and started to add the shells etc. Once happy I glued them in place with silicone
Finally I just smudged a bit of silicone and sprinkled sand over in areas
